What do people think about no speeches on the big day? We arent planning to have any at all except a thank you speech to parents and everyone for coming.
Thats all im doing aswell speeches bore the life out of people 😁
We aren’t doing them and everyone seems to be relieved lol. Sometimes think there can be too much pressure. My dad and fiancé aren’t much into public speaking so I’ll just thank everyone for coming x
We're not having speeches we want a relaxed day only having immediate family present anyway for day doo xx
Totally fine, my speech was basically thank yous and we didn't have speeches from parents. My best friends did a poem and that was that. It just takes sooo long and well, we just wanted to all dance and have a good time!
We ditched the speeches at the last minute because the best man (groom's brother) was so stressed! No regrets at all. We only had 30 people so we got the chance to speak to everyone personally anyway.
We didn’t have any speeches at all, i thanks all my guests when i saw them, my partner, dad and bestman would have been rlly uncomfortable doing a speech and id rather they enjoyed the day than stress about it. Noone missed them and everyone had a great time ☺️
We're not having any
We aren't having any xx
We didn't have many. If I had my way we wouldn't of had any... But the best man threw his toys out of the pram and used it to ridicule his brother... And my hubby just thanked everyone for coming. We didnt want people to get restless and just enjoy the celebration x
We are making the speeches fun by playing speech bingo.
It’s your day! I suppose it what you want! if that’s all the speeches you want then leave it at that!
We did speeches and they were all brilliant. But that's what we wanted. If you don't want them, don't have them! It's your day ️
It’s honestly something I am absolutely buzzing for. Us ladies put so much effort into planning the wedding - I’m so excited to hear all about what the boys have to say!! My other half often comes home from work and tells me that he’s been adding to his speech and smiles and it’s something he is really excited for! He’s a great public speaker which eases my anxiety! X
You dint have to do anything you don’t want too xx
Yep totally fine we just thanked everyone for coming have parents flowers xxx
It’s your wedding do what you would like to do x
We did speeches before the meal, while everyone was having 'welcome' drinks. It killed what can otherwise be quite a dead time at a wedding, reduced the amount of fizz needed and most importantly saved a lot of nerves, got them out of the way so the day could be enjoyed. It was perfect. My dad really wanted to do a speech, so I didn't want to take that from him xx
I quite like this idea as my dad and H2b both struggle with speaking x
Thanks for all your comments and advice.
We just want a relaxed no stress day, the people that would be doing speeches arent very good with speaking in public (and I'm dreading what they may come out with 🤦♀️🤣🤣). We are sacking them off and just having thank you speech and thank you gifts for wedding party and parents xx
A good speech can be a really memorable and touching moment in a wedding. But a quick thank you and a toast to make your guests feel loved and appreciated is fine I think. I once went to a wedding where there were no speeches, toasts or thank yous and the day felt a bit flat because of it
Weve decided no speeches as H2B is dyslexic and my dad as a stutter so quick thank you will do us xx
