The wedding speech order will help you as you plan your big day. Here is a typical order of when speeches should be made.

Jeremy Enness

The first speech is given by Father of the bride. The father of the bride will thank the wedding attendees for gathering in the celebration, honour the bride and welcome the groom into the family.

The next speech is made by the Best Man. He will share an anecdote about the groom and make the toast to the couple.

The next speech is given by the Maid of Honour. She will honour the bride and share a few words about the couple.

It is not unconventional for the bride, groom, mother of the bride/groom or wedding guests to speak.

Speeches usually take place at the reception and held either before, during or after the meal.
