Example Maid Of Honor Speech

In the Holy Sacrament of Matrimony, man and woman exchange vows to stay together even during the ugliest and most difficult of times. The ceremony precedes a banquet or a simple feast when wedding speeches are traditionally delivered by the newly wed couple’s best man and maid of honor. Here, now, is an example maid of honor speech.

“Family, relatives, and friends of the bride and the groom – a wonderful evening to all of you! For those of you who don’t know me, I am the bride’s best friend and maid of honor. Now, on behalf of the newly wed couple, I would like to take this chance to welcome you all in this celebration. Also, let me thank all of you for being here today. I know this means so much for this lovely couple here that you found time to grace this joyous occasion with your presence.”

“Ladies and gentlemen, I have been best friends with the bride since elementary. We knew each other very well, being together practically every hour of every day. We studied in the same school, had the same classes, joined the same group of friends, enrolled in the same college, and spent most of the time in each other’s company. As her closest friend, I know that she’s been dreaming of this day for so long. If there was one wish that she always had, it was to find the man who will love her forever and to have a family of their own. Today, her wish became a reality and I am happy for her.”

“And so to the bride, this I say to you – congratulations! I am proud of you and I am glad to see you that radiant and beautiful in your wedding gown. To the groom, all I ask of you is to take care of your wife, my best friend and the kindest person I know. Please love her with all of your heart and soul, and do not give her up no matter how hard it will be in the future. Hold on to your love and hold on to your marriage.”

“My wish for both of you is that you’ll have a happy and lasting relationship. May you be blessed with a dozen kids to call your own. May your future be as bright as your beginning. May your trials and challenges be few, and may you be strong enough as a couple to overcome them.”

This, now, is an example maid of honor speech.

Maid of Honor Speech Example

When ever anyone has to provide a speech for a special occasion they always seem to have difficulties in getting started with it. To the maids of honor at weddings this is especially difficult. Maids of honor can be relatives or close friends and finding sample of speeches that pertain specifically to one to the other can often be difficult. What I am going to do here is to provide a sample of a sister speech.

You will notice that the sister in no way attempted to be serious but rather she acted naturally and thus the speech came out much better.

To begin with the sister was called up to the podium to give her speech. All evening she had waited patiently for this opportunity. Over and over she had rehearsed what she would say and now she was finally able to say it. She walks slowly to the podium and starts.

Hello everyone!

In the event that you may not know who I am, you can easily see a resemblance between Kathy the bride and me. I am Jessie, Kathy’s older sister. I am honored to be here at my younger sisters wedding where she will finally unite with her Prince Charming. Of course when we were merely 15 years old Kathy’s idea of Prince Charming was a cute guy with a convertible car, several credit cards in his wallet a job at the local pizza parlor and he had to be on the soccer team. Well Paul I suppose your do have a car. (She pauses momentarily for the audience to laugh).

Even though Kathy believed she had designed the perfect Prince Charming when Paul stepped into her life her heart and her mind agreed that it was really Paul who was the actual Charming prince. Over this past year I have come to realize that Kathy was completely correct and Paul is in fact her Prince Charming.

The love that exists between Kathy and Paul can be felt by each person sitting here in this room.

On this special day I wish my sister Kathy and her Prince Charming the best that a girl and guy can have. May they always be as happy as they are now. I love you Kathy! Congratulations!
