Writing and then presenting a maid of honor speech is a whole lot of fun. You maybe have only a vague idea about it and it’s truly a lot more than that. First of all, it’s about girly stuff. Women have their own ways of connecting and the bride is either a very good friend or your sister. Whatever the case is, you need to prepare in advance, in time and then it will all be great. There are no difficulties with a speech as long as you are ready.
Enjoy some girls’ time
You will need girls’ time more than before. Maybe it’s not only with the bride, but with some common friends too, such as the bridesmaids. However, you need to understand that as the maid of honor you are responsible of helping the bride. There will be many times when you will feel like you’d like to do something else but then the bride asks you to go with her. It may be about shopping, a tea, coffee or simply a movie time. Whatever it is, don’t miss it. You will need to feel relaxed and comfortable with the girls, while you make yourself some free time to think about the speech and what you intend to say.
Girls’ time will also help you whenever you find yourself in situations when you are freaked out. It’s not because you lose control and it’s not because you would be unable to handle situations. It’s all due to the fact that you have a lot of things to handle, all at once, and sometimes you feel like the time is not enough and you don’t know what to do.
Then, while enjoying your free and enjoyable time with the bridesmaids, you will all have time to share ideas and come up with some great plans about how you can surprise the bride. It can be about the gifts you want to give her, or maybe about your speech. A bridesmaid wedding speech needs to talk clearly and in a special way, such as from a girl’s heart to the bride’s heart. You also have the feminine version of what the best man has – you’re the bride’s best girl! So, you need to make her feel special and be there with all you can. Asking for opinions from the bridesmaids is also great, because you will find out about new ideas and new things you can do. More
