What exactly is a wedding letter?

In case you’re not familiar with what a wedding day letter is, it’s basically a handwritten note that your bride will open on the morning of the wedding – usually when you’re not there.

It’s a nice touch to kick off the most memorable day of your life. Especially as the note will include all the reasons she’s so special to you, as well as explaining how excited you are for the day ahead and the rest of your lives together, even if you’re not spending the morning together.

It should be sweet, but it doesn’t have to be soppy if that’s not you. Keep it funny!

However you write it, a wedding day letter is a perfect memento from the day. So remember – there’s every chance this is going to be framed and mounted on your living room wall… Just as an added incentive to make it extra special.

Don’t leave this to a-last-minute-night-before job. Instead, take your time, a good few weeks before the wedding.

As a basic guide…

  • tell her how excited you are to see her later that day
  • explain you might not have enough time in the day to privately tell her how much she means to you but this is your chance
  • tell her why she means the world to you and that you can’t wait for her to be your wife

When you’ve nailed your final draft, no matter how bad your handwriting is, this is one letter that needs to be hand-written.

Invest in some ‘nice’ stationary (A4 printer paper won’t cut it, mate) and even a decent pen if red biro is all you have in the house. 

Finally, if this is going to be a surprise, arrange for a family member to ‘deliver’ it to your bride on the morning of your wedding. Her mum, or if you already have children together, could be a cute postal service. 

Following the basic structure above and you can’t go wrong. Other inspo to consider…

You’re allowed to wallow in nostalgia on your wedding day – so reminiscence about the stuff that means something to you both but didn’t make your wedding speech. As you’ve probably already realised, sometimes those truly special moments don’t translate into something a wider audience can appreciate. 

So, maybe remind her about the moment you met. Or tell her about the moment you really fell in love with her? A story about how nervous you were for your first date – and how much more nervous you are today. Or maybe it’s even a story about the first morning you spent together?

Ultimately, you want to bring a smile to her face and take her away from the stress of getting ready for a moment. Remind her that the day is actually all about love, rather than any issues related to false eyelashes or bad weather. 


End with some future ambitions for you as a couple. Today is the start of one big adventure so what do you want to be part of it?

Consider everything from the micro to the macro. From continuing your search for the ultimate chocolate pizza recipe to traveling around five continents together. Whatever your couple-goals, it’s time to get her excited about them.


Obviously, tell her how much you love her but don’t just list empty romantic adjectives. It doesn’t feel personal. 

Instead think about the small, individual things that make her ‘her’. Reveal her unique quirks that make you smile and love her more.

Get inspired by that Harry Met Sally quote where Harry lists everything he loves about Sally. Nothing fancy, nothing poetic but just pure love.

wedding speeches bride letter advice


Yes, if you’re struggling to find much meaningful to say, refer to people wiser and wittier than yourself.

Whilst plagiarism is never allowed, quoting people is! And sometimes you’ll find other folk manage to nail that elusive sentiment you were hunting.

Check out our Groom Speech Quotes or Bride Speech Quotes for some ideas. Bonus points if you find a quote from a song, book, or film that is meaningful to you both.


These can be as silly as you like. You promise to always put enough water in the kettle for two, as opposed to just making a cup of tea for yourself. Or you promise to let her choose the next series on Netflix. Whatever makes you you, include it!


‘When I squeeze your hand later, it’s because I can’t blooming believe you’re my wife’.

It’s a cute little idea that will ensure you have an intimate connection and lots of secret moments in amongst the craziness of the day.

''I had an unbelievable experience working with Speechy. From the moment I got in touch with them I felt supported and come the day of my best mans speech, it went down a storm with a standing ovation.''
''Speechy deserves more than 5 stars. (They) produced a factual, funny Mother of the Bride speech with just the right amount of emotion..... it was ingenious. Thank you so much for the wonderful & priceless memory of having delivered my speech at my daughter’s wedding and nailed it ... and got a standing ovation too. My children were very proud of me, including my new son-in-law! ''
''These Guys are tremendous! One main point is that its not their speech - its yours! This is because it is based totally around what you would like to say, but its the spin that Speechy puts on it, that is the magical bit... Ordinary words become a hilariously entertaining event. There were giggles, applauds, laughs, tears, cheers and standing ovation – all in that order!''
''Feeling anxious or stressed about an upcoming speech? Look no further than Speechy... I just delivered my Best Man speech this past weekend and absolutely crushed it. I was nervous leading up to the moment, but while delivering my speech, I didn't want the experience to end, the room was hooked, and laughing at every joke. Worth every penny... Thank you!''
''Navigating through the wedding industry often feels like you’re stuck on a conveyer belt....Speechy is the complete opposite. They treat you and your wedding like you’re the one and only. I couldn’t recommend them more.''
''Heidi and the whole team at Speechy are an absolute gem! In addition to their talent and extensive experience in speech writing, Heidi had an impressive way of listening to me talk about mine and my partners personal anecdotes, before putting it in such a funny and beautiful way that it felt as though she’d known us for years.''
