Groom Speech and other Wedding Speeches

What are the major speeches? And what do they have in common?

There are four major wedding speeches viz.

Best Man Speech
Groom Speech
Father of the Bride Speech
Maid of Honor Speech

Apart from that there are other wedding speeches like the bride speech, father of the groom speech, mother of the groom speech so on and so forth.

All wedding speeches begin with a introduction and often end with a wedding toast. You will every wedding speaker sharing anecdotes during his or her speech.

But apart from those similarities every wedding speech is different from the other. A groom wedding speech is obviously not the same as the best man speech or father of the bride speech. The groom speech is formal and straight forward in nature until it reaches the stage where the groom pays tribute to his bride.

Soon the mic would be in your hand and every eyeball in that hall focused on you. Expectations are high since the bride’s father delivered nothing less than an awesome speech.
