I don’t envy people who have to say speeches at weddings. For those who are not so outgoing, saying a speech at yours or a friend’s wedding can be very nerve-wracking! But being asked to say a speech at someone’s wedding is also very special – you know that you are truely appreciated as a friend.
Traditionally, the Father of the Bride, the Best Man and The Groom say speeches, but of course with today’s changing traditions, anything is possible and you can ask whoever you want to say a speech at your wedding. Some people ask their siblings, or the maid of honour to say a speech. It is known that even the bride herself can have her say. (Just don’t out-do the groom’s speech!)
Here are a few tips to help with the writing of your speech:
Father of the Bride
A good marriage must be created.
In marriage, the little things are the big things:

Never go to sleep angry.
Have a mutual sense of values and common objectives.
Form a circle of love that will unite your whole family.
Support and believe in your partner’s dreams and aspirations.
Give eachother an atmosphere in which to grow.
