Usually, the only people to speak during a wedding reception are the bride and groom as they thank their parents and others who have made their wedding possible; the maid of honor, and the best man. If you want to shake up tradition, you may wish to consider giving a romantic bride speech to your new husband. Read on to learn about how you can make a romantic speech that follows your maid of honor speech and surprises your groom!
First, as you write your speech, include some of the fondest details that pop into your mind as you think of the first time you met your soon to be husband, your first date together, or other early memories. Wedding speech etiquette limits you from getting overly personal in front of your guests, so just be sure to phrase your special moments in a way that the two of you will understand without going into too much detail. The key is to let your guests in on your special moments without taking the privacy of the shared moment away from the both of you.
You may also wish to create a romantic bride speech in the form of an acrostic poem. You can list all of your groom’s positive qualities as you spell out his name. You may also think it is romantic to list the top ten reasons why you love and want to marry the groom.
In addition to wedding processional etiquette where the bride and groom walk down the aisle married together before the other members of the wedding party; you may also wish to pull your groom to the side and share your romantic prepared bride speech with him privately. You do not have to read it in front of others, and it will still be special because of an unexpected moment with your groom and a romantic gesture all in itself.
You may also wish to give your romantic speech during the rehearsal dinner, rather than your reception. It will be given in front of a smaller audience and will be more personal. Wedding rehearsal dinner etiquette allows the parents of the bride and of the groom to give a brief speech, as well as the couple together. It will be a romantic gesture to add a few words about your groom after the both of you speak to your family and wedding party.
Giving your groom a romantic bride speech is a gift that he will never forget!
