First of all, I would like to say that writing that perfect bridesmaid speech is such a hard job. Trust me; I have been a bridesmaid at more weddings than most people, and there really is no easy way around. However, if you are having troubles making the toast to the bridesmaids, you should really check out this site. It is probably the resource that I have used the most in all of my speeches. There you can find so many examples of toasts, wedding poems and just a lot of great inspiration to make every other bridesmaid cry when she hears your speech.
Now first of all, when writing a toast to the bridesmaids, you got to remember that you want to move people. People are not moved by the same, but one of the great things (as I wrote about in my last post), is using wedding poems. Most people really love poems, and if you can read it out the right way, your wedding toast will truly be the one they will remember best from the wedding.
A few other tips is to always include the groom and the bride. They should of course be the center of your toast, but don’t dwell too much on it. You can always choose to make it funny, just don’t cross the line.
Now the really tricky part is actually to create the toast to bridesmaids. With a perfect toast, they should be so moved that they get tears in their eyes when they hear your speech. If you can make the other bridesmaids cry, you have indeed achieved the goal of writing the ultimate wedding-speech for bridesmaids and maid of honors.
Are you still missing inspiration? You can always do like I did the first time: Check out Wedding Speech 4 U. They have lots of examples, even wedding poems and fully completed speeches, that you can either use completely or just take parts and get inspiration. I have to admit, that it is really my favorite resource for wedding-toasts. Without that guide, all of my maid of honor speeches would never have been as good as they turned out to be.
