Wedding Speech Order

I noticed there are a lot of people searching for “wedding speech order“. Although the order of speeches can differ depending on the country or culture, there’s a traditional order in which the toasts are held, and here it is:

Wedding Speech Order

First, the father of the bride opens the wedding ceremony. Usually he is the one paying for the wedding (or in some cases you two can split the expenses in half) and because of that he’s considered the host and so he will go first. He will usually thank everybody for coming to the wedding, then he will welcome the groom into his family, then he will say a few nice words about his daughter and close the speech with a toast to the groom and the bride.

You come next, and will first thank the bride’s father for the opening toast and also everybody that came to the wedding (here are some opening lines for your speech).

Since the duration of such a talk is so small, somewhere in the region of a minute, you have to carefully select the ideas that you would like to incorporate in your toast, because not all the ones that I mention in the following paragraphs are mandatory for this type of discourse.Read Full Article –>
