The Best South Asian Wedding Speech Videos

The Best South Asian Wedding Speech Videos

As we know, South Asian weddings are all about the “wow” factor - with their popping colours, movie set backdrops, and hundreds of guests - and these days, speeches are adding something extra special to proceedings. Here, the Speechy team, have curated some of the best South Asian wedding speech videos online today to inspire you.

(*Of course, if you’re looking for more than ‘advice’, check out all the different ways the Speechy team can help you write & deliver a great speech. Or check out our new AI-powered team member, SpeechyAI.)

Some Speech Advice First

  • Traditionally, male members of the family will do most of the talking, but as with most things, this tradition is changing, and more women are stepping up to speak.
  • It’s still best practice to respectfully begin with the couple’s parents, but after that, the rules can be relaxed and anyone from an embarrassing uncleji to the bride’s best mate might want to say a few words. Ideally, the speeches should be rounded off with some words from the bride and groom themselves.
  • Although a ‘more the merrier’ approach is kind of lovely, South Asian wedding speeches tend to go on longer, with reams of thank yous to get through, so some organisation of the speakers might be necessary.
  • If you’re delivering a speech at an Asian wedding, you can expect a large audience. With hundreds of eyes on the stage, it can be a rather intimidating experience, so we advise plenty of planning and rehearsal.
  • Every wedding speech needs a big old dose of genuine sentiment but first on the agenda is winning some belly laughs from your audience. Ratio is really important here – we’d say aim for 75% humour, 25% sweetness. Far too many speeches get this round the wrong way!
  • Most South Asian weddings remain somewhat conservative so, while gentle mockery of the bride or groom is absolutely fine – expected even – keep it tasteful and with the broad range of guests’ age groups and sensibilities in mind.

The Brother of the Groom Speech

If you can get past the wobbly mobile phone camera, this dude is a character who knows how to tell a story. He also gets the quotient of humour to sentiment spot on.

Best Man Speech

A wonderful example of two cultures figuring the moment out together. This rather sweetly funny, family-friendly speech seems funnier in Gujarati! We love the way the best man uses expressive body language to interact with the people he’s addressing.

Father of the Groom Speech

While we wouldn’t necessarily advise a twenty-minute long speech that details the minutiae of your life with the groom, we do have a soft spot for this loving father’s seriously cool and beautiful tribute to his son at his gay wedding. His honesty and openness are infused with humour, as he gives a voice to the blessing of parenthood.

The Full Story

If that father of the groom speech had you going ‘awwww’, you might want to watch Vaibhav and Parag’s wedding highlights in full technicolour:

The Bridesmaids

This trio of gorgeous bridesmaids does a great job of reminding everyone how amazing and loved the bride is. We appreciate the way all three keep their speeches concise and on point, and the inclusion of quotes and slightly irreverent marriage advice is a nice touch.

However, we’d love to have heard some cheeky anecdotes about the bride. No one is that perfect.

The Professional Groom Speech

This guy’s speech has it all – confidence, anecdotes, great sound quality, well-rehearsed, smooth-talking and yet… it’s a bit intense, right?

Something gives us the impression he’s used to delivering marketing pitches. We do like his concluding remarks though: ‘if anything goes wrong, screw it, just be happy’.

The Best Type of Best Man Speech

There’s really no getting away from best men reading their speech off their phones. It’s all good, as long you make the effort to learn (most of it) first.

This guy comes across as very natural, adlibbing and pausing in all the right places. He also gets the balance right between honoring his bromance with the groom and saying lovely things about the bride.

We’re rated ‘Excellent' on Trustpilot for a reason...

''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.''
