Bride's, are you or did you make a speech at your wedding?
I don’t think I am going to
I am doing but only because my fiancee is too nervous
I did a speech in place of my late father.
I just said thank you to everyone for coming and wished my aunt and uncle happy wedding anniversary because it was their anniversary on that day.
I definitely wont be, I'd be pooing myself. Writing and reading our own vows is enough for me haha
I’m not but I’m having my sister and best friend (bridesmaid) do one x
I did! I had 13 bridesmaids and didn't want a general "thank you" in my now husband's speech. xx
I am going to do one because to be blunt it’s my wedding and I want too 😂 x
I will be! Not into speeches from men and voiceless women! :)
I did :) it was the longest speech ever!
I practically did the whole thing..my hubby was bricking it 🤣
My speech is the main event 😂
Nope we just thanked everyone for sharing our day xx
I get married next Saturday! My 12 year old daughter is doing a speech, I talk way to much anyway 🤣🤣
Think I got the best man maid of honour and my dad giving speeches lol
I did one instead of my husband as he detests public speaking. I made everyone cry! I would recommend it to any bride 🥰
I did but only to explain the relevance of the colours we had chosen to remember 2 very special women (my nanny and his mum) who are no longer with us x
I did as my husband is very shy and can suffer with anxiety have some brilliant photos of me crying lol he did choose to say a few words after me but that was his choice in the moment xxx
I did - so happy I did too
I did a speech! X
No, but my husband did. Then a surprise speech from my son. 😊
Both me and my cousin added a line into our husbands speech at our wedding so didn’t necessarily do one but we added our comment in there 😂
No. Hate speaking infront of people and being stared at😂 don’t know how I coped walking down the isle x
We weren’t going to do any as my dad isn’t going to be there, my h2b and his dad didn’t want to and neither did the best men but I speak a lot at work (presentations etc) so I’ve said I will do one just to thank everyone and tell them what it means to us all that they’ve joined us etc. Nothing too heavy x
I will be, second time married and I want to say how happy I am x
I wont be, I'm absolutely terrified of having all eyes on me, i'll be a great bride! haha
I did x
I didn’t but my bridesmaids did a little story of me and hubby. Then my FIL did an impromptu one after some wine 😂
I did as my husband hates it. Thanking everyone for coming and celebrating our day and to tjose who sadly werent here anymore xx we did a toast for them xx
I did, but I left my speech at home, so I had to make it up lol
Yes I did as my husband didn’t say a lot. I had some things I wanted to share, so this was a great opportunity
Yess i did and so glad i did
I did. It was mostly general stuff like, "thank you all for coming", thanking my bridesmen for supporting me and thanking my parents etc. I also did it after everyone had eaten and drank so were at least a little bit merry. Much easier to do x
I don't think we will be having speeches at all, I hate speaking in front of alot of people!
I made the speech as my husband was too shy lol
I am but my dad isnt as he doesmt want to x
We didn't do any
I wasnt planning on doing so but I ended up doing one on the day, just directly after my new hubby. I had the urge so just went with it lol x
I did! We had speeches from the bride, groom, best man and mother of thr bride! People were very complimentary of me doing a speech!
I'll be doing a speech because me and my HTB plan to roast the 💩 out of each other 🔥😂
I’m going to make a speech. Our wedding day is my late grandads birthday so I’ll be making a toast to him 🥂 xx
No stood by old traditions.
I planned to...but then decided not to 'cause I knew I'd cry 🤣
Yes I did a speech. It was lovely to have a n opportunity to thank people x
I didn’t at my wedding. But when we have our renewal I’m going to make a speech. Prob be the only one as it won’t be anything like my wedding. But I would like to say something as I didn’t at the wedding and wished I did xx
I did, it was more about thanking those who helped and talking about my wife and I x
Probably will yeah
I was initially going to but then there were going to be a lot of speeches (maid of honour, dad, groom, best man) and I thought you know what, I don’t need an extra stress of thinking of a speech etc for the day. So instead I wrote what I was going to say to my husband if I’d given a speech in a card I instructed him to open on the morning of the wedding 🙂
Nope will leave it to everyone else
Yes I did. No one knew about it except the amazing manager who ran our day and I went after everyone else xx
I’ll be doing a toast to absent friends x
I did! I spoke before we ate to raise our loved ones that have passed, then we had my dad, husband and best man after dinner. Happy to PM mine to anyone who may want it x
I will be x
I did. I wasn't comfortable with alot of the male dominated traditions at my wedding. I was married by a woman registrar and we had my mum, myself, the best man and my husband doing the speeches. My husband isn't comfortable with public speaking so originally I was going to speak on behalf of us as a couple but he decided to say a few words about his best men and the ushers. It worked really well and we both had compliments on our speeches.
I did and part of me wanted to do it before my husband but decided my speech may spoil his! So I did it as a surprise last minute and was last to speak! Hilarious! Everyone was in stitches! 🤣🤣🤣🤣
Nope, but I did heckle my groom! Apparently it helped 🤷🏻♀️
Baby shark do do do do !!! Easy
Yes, and I opened with ‘down with the patriarchy’ 💪🏼
My husband was soooooo anxious over his groom’s speech that we made it a ‘Broom’s speech and did it together! He used to lose sleep over thinking about it, he was that terrified! It worked wonderfully and we wrote it in rhyme so it was hilarious 🤣
I thanked the bridesmaids and gave them their gifts, it seemed appropriate as I'd asked them to take on their role. More often than not brides say at least a few words now. Do what you feel comfortable with x
I will be. Grinds my gears that tradition says it's only the men that do!
I will be, I want to thank everyone - it will mean so much for everyone to come and be with us!
Probably will when I'm drunk 😂
Yes I did x
Yes I did
My husband did the speech in with the thank you gifts,I don't like speaking on the microphone so I got the easy get out by handing out the gifts 🤣
I'm going to be! So will my Mum and MIL hopefully - all just short speeches but I want the other two important women in my marriage to have a chance to say something too ☺️
I want to but don’t think I’ll be able to manage it!
I did at my 1st wedding but always regretted it, so i kept quiet at my next wedding!
I will be I think x
I think I will be x
I did and made a toast to family who are no longer with us x
