Stand-in speaker: Where to start

Here’s a rundown of what’s expected of you, if you’re stepping into the breach and making a wedding speech

  • Introduce yourself and explain briefly your relationship to the bride (and groom).
  • If one of the bride or groom’s parents has passed away, you should honour them in your speech.
  • Thank the guests for joining the celebrations.
  • Thank all those who have paid for any part of the wedding and helped to organise the day.
  • Compliment the bride.
  • Welcome the groom.
  • Propose a toast to the bride and groom.
