Writing a Short Wedding Speech

Wedding speech template for when you’re keen to keep it short and sweet

By the chief bridesmaid

“I’m sure you’ll be delighted that, as Nicola’s chief bridesmaid, I have only one thing to say: John and Nicola, you’ve thanked me for being your bridesmaid but I want to thank you for letting us all be here to share in your happiness. You really are the best friends anyone could ever hope for and you’re perfect for each other. I know that you’ll be very happy together.

There is only one toast I could give, so please join me in raising your glasses to… the bride and groom.”


For a more light-hearted speech don’t be afraid to add in some Jokes and One Liners.
