When myself and Alison were preparing for the big day we wanted to share our bride and groom wedding speech ideas together. You may want to consider doing the same on your wedding day if you think it is something that will help.
On writing out the speeches my wife and I did not create our speeches together as this would have spoiled the surprise of what we were going to say on the day.
However, we did consider that it would be a great idea to discuss and work on a theme or direction on how we wanted our wedding speeches to develop.
Bride and Groom Speeches
When it comes to figuring out who says what, it will greatly help to work on getting your stories together, so that each other’s speech is not going to be repeating what the other is saying.
This is not just the speech of the bride but also the father of the groom wedding speech.
So it is highly recommended to discuss bride and groom wedding speech ideas with your wife and to make sure you have some kind of framework in place when building out your speech.
It is worth noting that not all bride and grooms will do their own separate speeches.
With my other family members getting married, only the groom did a speech as it was more of a tradition for the bride not to say any words. However, in our case, we wanted to break the mold.
Perhaps in your case, only one of you will do a speech. Or have you considered that there is nothing stopping you both from performing your speech together? If however, you are still not sure on the way forward on this, then I suggest you both sit down together and iron out what the way forward should be on speaking.
Producing Electrifying Speeches
If you decide that it is a good idea to discuss with your bride-to-be about the speech and if she is going to do one.
It is more than likely that you have both been looking at similar ideas that together you like to address. For instance, you will have similar kind of stories that you both want to tell. Like where you both met and the situation of how this came about and what you have done together in your relationship.
Maybe you could look at different topics to be covered and for you both to decide who will address each of those topics. Or alternatively you could look at speaking about the same topics but from each other’s perspectives.
For example, how you both met could be a great idea of speaking based on the bride and groom’s own experiences.
This would make into a provocative and funny speech yet you have candy of serious wedding speeches that the audience will remember for years!
I like to let you know that what I have been discussing here is not compulsory about planning bride and groom wedding speech ideas together. And as I mentioned previously, was only ourselves that broke the mold in the family with the bride giving a speech.
I do think that sharing some ideas, but still keeping your wedding speeches private so not to reveal any spoilers before the big day, can pave the way for some higher inspiration.
Indeed if you are looking for divine inspiration for your wedding day, I recommend looking at some speech examples to help you along.
As Shakespeare would have said, if the groom speech is the food of love then speak on! 🙂
