The order of speeches is traditionally as follows:
The father of the bride
usually talks fondly about his daughter. As with most speeches, it is
accepted that a mixture of affectionate anecdote and humour generally works
well. He then toasts the bride and groom.
The groom speaks next and replies on behalf of himself
and his wife [in these modern times it should be remembered that more and
more brides are making their own speeches*]. He aims to thank those people
involved in helping them both in the planning of the wedding and distributes
gifts to those who are to receive more than a verbal "thank you." The groom
then may talk about his new wife before proposing a toast to the bridesmaids
*If the bride is to make a speech it should take place following the
groom's. It may seem obvious, but joint speeches should be co-ordinated well
beforehand since both will probably wish to say much the same thing.
The best man's speech now follows. He thanks the bride
and bridegroom on behalf of the bridesmaids and himself for asking them to
be part of their special day and for the gifts they have received and then
he reads out telegrams, cards, e-mails or other messages from friends and
relatives who couldn't be at the wedding. He will then go on to talk about
the groom in what can be the highlight, or in some cases lowlight, of the
wedding speeches. Humour and anecdote abound. Finally the best man
should then propose a toast to the parents of the bride and bridegroom.
A modern trend is also for the
maid-of honor to make a speech.
