Wedding Speech for a Maid of Honor or Best Woman


For those of you who don't know me.....I'm Misty.....Martha's friend of 17 years and her maid of honor. Martha, I just want you to know how honored I am to stand by your side on this special day. And can I just say how beautiful and happy you look right now? Gosh you would think it was your wedding day or something!

Martha and I met at James Rutter Middle School in the 7th grade. She was the "new student".......the "quiet" student. Or so everyone thought. Whenever we got together it was non-stop laughter, but whenever we were around other people it was a different story. I'm sure when most of you first met Martha you probably thought she didn't like you or that she had an attitude problem because of the way she looked at you when you spoke to her....you know---that "whatever" look. In school, people use to ask me if she was deaf. I would say, "No, believe me, she's hilarious!" They would look at me like, "Yeah right." It was kind of like that Warner Brothers frog that would only sing in front of his owner but around everyone else he would just sit there and ribbit.

As far as I could remember, since we've been growing up, we've had lots of good times and memories together. It seems like it was just yesterday that we were spending whole weekends at each other's houses, staying up all night getting carpal tunnel trying to win concert tickets on the radio. Whenever I think back to all the good times we've had, I can always picture myself laughing so hard, holding my stomach, trying to keep the tears from falling. Actually, wasn't that just yesterday? We started out inseparable and as we grew up sadly the weekend long sleepovers became fewer and fewer but nevertheless we still call each other and see each other whenever we're able to steal a few moments between those grown up responsibilities like work and relationships. Even though we're all grown up, some things never change. We still crack each other up and still have our "secret" language that only the two of us can understand like "Woodchuck to Grey Squirrel......come in Grey Squirrel" or "nduh". And even though I will always cherish the memories we've made and will make, it is time for us to create new ones.

Wedding Speech - Best Woman or Maid of Honor - Wedding Speech – Best Woman or Maid of Honor Good Evening. For those of you who don’t know me, I am Sarah, Frankie’s slightly older sister.

Frankie and I have always been pretty much inseparable as long as I can remember and we have always managed to keep each other laughing. I vividly remember Frankie and I staying up until well past our bedtime, throwing stuffed animals at each other, talking about boys and laughing so hard at everything and anything....   [tags: Wedding Toasts Roasts Speeches] 346 words

Wedding Speech – Best Woman or Maid of Honor - Wedding Speech – Best Woman or Maid of Honor Ladies and Gentlemen – I’ll start by thanking Brian on behalf of the bridesmaids for his kind words. For those of you who don’t know me, I’m Hannah and am trying to do as good a job as I can today to be Brian’s best man – rather as good a job as I am able to do given that there was no way I was going to put my name down to have gender reassignment surgery so that I could properly fulfil the role. I was a bit surprised, although naturally honoured, when Brian asked me to do this, but in actual fact, having a girl as a best man makes perfect sense as it shows that Brian has carefully thought ahead to his life as a married man and is happy with the...   [tags: Wedding Toasts Roasts Speeches] 1279 words

Wedding Speech for a Maid of Honor or Best Woman - Wedding Speech for a Maid of Honor or Best Woman Good evening. I would like to thank all of you for attending this joyful occasion. For those of you that don't know me, I'm Hanah's friend Erica, sometimes known as "Natasha" or "Hanah's foot taller twin sister". I'm sure you read in the playbill/program that I used to work with her in the accounting department. We hit it off from the start - both having a love for drama, we spent not only our working days together but every night as well. We got into trouble a lot for talking too much - so much that it became necessary to write notes, crumple them up and throw them at each other when no one was looking....   [tags: Wedding Toasts Roasts Speeches] 912 words

Humorous Wedding Speech to a Groom with Long Hair - Humorous Wedding Speech to a Groom with Long Hair Good evening Ladies and Gentlemen. I must admit, I am more nervous about being best man than I was at my own wedding. Maybe it’s because I have been married a year and I know what Jonathan’s letting himself in for. And on that happy occasion, as some of you know, Jonathan was my best man and he did a wonderful job. However Jonathan, there are many reasons why you should get married and I’m not sure if revenge is one of them. But, it is a great thrill and an honor, and Jonathan’s already agreed that I can do it again next time....   [tags: Wedding Toasts Roasts Speeches] 740 words

Martha with her new husband and me with my children.

Bobby........the best friend torch has not been passed but extended to you . You better not drop it or you'll have to answer to me. Martha is very special but I'm sure you already know that. And this time I don't mean little yellow bus special. Thank you for loving her even though she leaves her shoes in the middle of the room and seeing past her most of the time expressionless face. (I swear it's a disorder!) Even though it seems she has "emotions of stone" you know she loves you unconditionally and will be loyal until the end (and even after that). You have taken such good care of her so far and anyone can see how much you love her. When Martha first told me that she met someone on the internet I said, "Oh on the internet." Inside I was saying, "Oh my God he's a mass murderer!" Of course that's not how I pictured her meeting her Prince Charming but I'm glad she did because you are the best thing that ever happened to her.

And you Grey Squirrel...... What can I say? I am so grateful that you have found love and happiness in Bobby. He's crazy so that makes him just perfect for you.You are like a sister to me and I love you very much. You've always been there for me and I hope our friendship only flourishes in the years to come. I hope our children, grandchildren, and great grandchildren will be best friends so they can experience a lifelong friendship like ours. My greatest wish for the two of you is that through the years your love for each other will deepen and grow. That years from now you will look back on this day, your wedding day, as the day you loved each other the least.

Cheers to you!
