The venue, your overdraft limit, who’s going to sit next to Dave; let’s face it, there’s plenty to think about when you’re planning a wedding. But here’s something we reckon you need to think about more… the speeches.
Over the last couple of decades, wedding speeches have become something to be endured rather than enjoyed. They’re generally assigned as a ‘boy’s job’, relegated to being a must-do chore, where clichés and platitudes are not only accepted but actively encouraged.
As a team of wedding speechwriters, we’re not buying that. Yes, we’ve got shed-loads of bias, but we reckon guests (who’ve spent an average of £498 attending a wedding) deserve more.
A wedding can be quite formulaic (unless you’re the couple getting hitched & then, of course, it’s completely unique & generally amaaazinng). Speeches add that essential dose of personality and humour that your wedding needs.
Here are a few ideas to ensure your speeches really say something at your wedding.
