START WITH AN OUTLINE

Remember writing papers in school? The best place to start organizing your ideas is by making an outline. Lay out the main points you’d like to cover so your speech has a nice flow. When you’re writing your speech, use the outline to make sure you’ve talked about all the things you planned to!

CHOOSE YOUR MAIN OBJECTIVE

Before you can write one of the best wedding speeches ever, it’s a good idea to decide on your main objective. Are you planning to make people laugh for most of your speech? Or are you planning to make people cry (happy tears, of course!)? Maybe a mixture of both? Deciding the tone of your speech is a great place to start!

TAKE A TRIP DOWN MEMORY LANE

Chances are, not all of the guests are going to know who you are or your relationship to the couple. It’s always a good idea to start with welcoming everyone to the wedding of the beloved couple, followed by a little introduction of yourself. Share a few fond memories from the past, such as when your friendship first blossomed!

GUSH A LITTLE (OR A LOT!)

You’ve been chosen to do this speech for a reason: the couple really loves you! Take this opportunity to remind everyone how amazing the couple really is, and how much their love for each other inspires you! Your reception speech is the perfect time to emphasize the romance in the atmosphere. After all, their love for one another is the reason everyone is there!

LEAVE OUT THE EMBARRASSING STORIES

While you’ve probably shared a lot of fun—and funny—times together, it may not be best to bring them up in front of the couple’s closest family and friends. Keep those saved for personal trips down memory lane! If you wouldn’t want your parents to hear those stories, I’m sure the couple wouldn’t either. The goal we’re going for here is one of the best wedding speeches ever!

END ON A HIGH NOTE

After your introduction and stories about the couple, it’s time to close out your speech with a heartfelt toast. Thank the couple for their friendship and for letting you speak on their biggest day, and raise a glass in their honor with some wishes for their future as a married couple!
