The biggest wedding of the year is now done and dusted. The Duke and Duchess of Sussex wed before millions of spectators and TV viewers, but the one thing we didn’t get to witness was the speeches. It has been hinted that Prince William’s best man’s speech was particularly “naughty” and that Meghan herself took to the microphone to express her gratitude towards the royal family for making her so welcome.
Traditionally wedding speeches have been reserved for male members of the wedding party, but now it seems that an increasing number of brides, and even bridesmaids, are taking the microphones, to have their own say.
Here, Hollins Hall Marriott Hotel & Country Club’s wedding coordinator, Tanya Lattimer, explores this trend and shares her top tips on how to make a successful speech.
After everything you’ve put in to planning your big day, you really don’t want that dream shattered by the shrill cry of a restless child – particularly during the all-important vows and speeches. Every bride and groom has nightmares of crying babies or bored kids being a burden on their wedding day, and likewise parents can be overly conscious of their children’s behaviour and find the fact they have been invited stressful.
