If you’ve ever attended a wedding, if only as a guest, you probably understood there is etiquette involved. Things proceed in a certain order, with specific people performing important tasks, which ultimately honor the bride and groom and keep the celebrations flowing in a specific and orderly way. This is their special day; a day everyone hopes they will remember for the rest of their lives, whether it’s a simple ceremony or a more elaborate affair.
As maid of honor, you have a number of important duties. And one of those duties is to give a speech at the reception. If you’re accustomed to public speaking, creative maid of honor speech ideas may come to you easily, but if this is the first time you’re going to stand in front of a very attentive crowd possibly with a microphone in your hand for the first time, you may need some advice.
Often, as maid of honor, you will be related to the bride – a sister or cousin – or be very close friends, so you know a lot about the bride already. Depending on the bride’s personality therefore, you should be able to come up with some unique ideas.
