We're having no speeches at our wedding, I'm not a huge fan of them personally and standing up and speaking in front of everyone is my other half's worst nightmare and i know that it would be out of my dads comfort zone too so i'm not putting them through it. We're only having our family and closest friends at the wedding so they all know how much it means them attending but i'm happy to stand and say a quick thank you if needed

My OH is but our best man possibly isn't. He is a very quiet person and he doesn't feel comfortable. We have said that it is completely up to him and we are happy either way. My MOH has always toyed with the idea of doing one but we have said the same to her. We will either have BM and MOH, one or the other or neither. We will have to wait and see :)

I doubt we'll be having speeches, we're more just go with the flo type people, just want the day fun and relaxed

My other half is terrified of public speaking so we have decided that we will do a joint speech (in which it will most likely be me speaking for most of it) just to say thank you to everyone which he is much happier with. I don't want him worrying the entire day just for a speech! I'm not sure if his best man will do a speech either, but my dad will be.

I went to a reception where groom or bride didn't do a speech. The bride's mother did.
