The maid of honor is a special person for the bride and has a special responsibility at the wedding: making a maid of honor speech. It makes perfect sense to deliver a funny maid of honor speech. After all the wedding is an event for joy and celebration. It is your responsibility to make it entertaining and not dull and boring.
Being funny can be quite difficult if you are not a stand-up comedian. But the good part is that no one is expecting you to be that funny. So you need not get worked up. Just using some punchy one-liners or some hilarious stories can make you look like a veteran public speaker.
Preparation is the key. Collect as many one-liners as you can from the Internet. Then jot down all the key things that you want to say in your speech. And then weave the one-liners in between wherever they are relevant. Here is one example – ‘To be happy with a man, you must understand him a lot and love him a little. To be happy with a woman, you must love her a lot and not try to understand her at all’. This is the simple recipe for funny maid of honor speeches.
Remember that your speech is about the bride since the best man will talk about the groom. So bring in various tidbits of facts and pieces of information from your memory about the time you spent with the bride in the past. You can get some good ideas from common friends so you can do well to request help from them. Think of all the things that the bride likes but the groom doesn’t and then try to create some fun by saying how the groom will have to put up with the new things.
Close your speech with a loving statement by wishing a happy married life for the couple.
