Bride doing the groom's speech this weekend!
Hi all, 5 days till my wedding and still not written my speech! I'm doing the 'groom's speech' because my H2B could never stand up in front of a room of people and speak regardless of whether they were strangers or loved ones and someone has to thank everyone who has helped us so I'm doing it (not exactly my dream either!!!)
I'm running with the following format;
Thank my dad for his speech
Thank the reader and musician taking part in our ceremony
Thank the usher and best man
Thank my amazing bridesmaid
Thank our parents
Thank our wonderful venue and amazing guests
Say how handsome my husband looks! lol
But I really want it over with as quickly as pos and don't want to end up waffling on, so wondering how much detail do I need to give? e.g. 'thank you to Sarah for doing a reading during our ceremony, we really appreciate it' or do I go into more details e.g. 'you were really enthusiastic whereas most people are too nervous to do it, you helped us pick our second reading, you did amazing etc.'
I've gone into the latter level of detail in the thank you cards (H2B handing out gifts and cards to everyone at least) but is it necessary in the speech? Or can I get away with keeping it short and sweet?
Help!!!! Don't know which way to go for best, thanks in advance! x
