Weddings can be stressful. There’s a lot of planning, coordination, organization and chaos involved when really all anyone wants is to have a good time. If you’ve been bestowed the duties of maid of honor, you probably already have a lot on your plate. The last thing you’re thinking about is giving a memorable toast at the end of your speech. We’ve already given you a rundown of the best drinking toasts for all occasions, but a wedding requires a truly special one.
According to WeddingWire, the best way to write a maid of honor speech is to start as early as possible, introduce your relationship with the bride, TALK about the bride, talk about her partner, talk about them as a couple, and, most importantly, don’t mention exes or past drunken debauchery. The typical maid of honor speech is about 2-3 minutes long and usually ends with a toast.
