Whether you’re a groom, best man or father of the bride, these four brilliant wedding speeches provide some wonderful inspiration…
We love a good speech here at Wedding Ideas, and when they’re done right, they can be a true highlight of the reception. If you’re looking for some creative, unique and hilarious wedding speeches, then take a look at some of our favourites below.
We’ve had a special place in our hearts for singing grooms ever since we watched Tom Fletcher of McFly’s amazing tribute to his wife Giovanna, and this groom’s speech is just as inventive!
Having said that, we’re not sure the mother of the groom appreciated the fart jokes…
Father of the bride speech
Now this is one devoted dad! We love this amazing poem from father of the bride Tom – it’s not easy to write a speech that’s funny, touching and rhymes.
We recommend you put the subtitles on in this video to truly appreciate his wonderful words.
Our favourite moments are Tom’s beautiful dedication to his wife and the mother of the bride around five minutes in, and his general advice for newlywed couples at the nine minutes, 15 seconds mark.
Best man speech
There’s nothing better than a funny best man‘s speech, and this is one of our favourites!
The typical one-liners about marriage have everyone cracking up, and we love that the best man had a ginormous cardboard cut-out of the groom in costume made up – we’re sure that it made for a great photo opportunity later!
Maid of honour speech
Who said only men should give speeches at weddings? This amazing rap by the bride’s sister just goes to show that us girls can rock it!
We love that she still managed to get a bit of good life advice in at the end, and everyone clearly loved it – a truly brilliant speech.
