Hello lovely brides and brides-to-be,

 

We have decided to open up the floor to our guests if they would like to give a speech.  We are asking them to decide this ahead of time though so that they can prepare for it a little, also so that it gives us a change to let them know that we want them to keep it at 3mins max-ish. 

 

In my earlier days following this forum, I saw or read someone post their example of a blurb that explained their speech etiquette for lack of better words.  Does anyone have a sample of the wording they used?  I'm short for words today but really want to get started on this asap.

thank  you!

We are doing the exact same thing! We'll have my dad and sister and his brother do the "formal" speeches but then throughout dinner we're letting the mic be open. On my "to do" list for this week is exactly what you describe - a communication about this and the expectations. We'd like to keep them to 2 minutes max each :)

 

So, thanks for posting this! I'm anxious to see ideas!

We're also thinking of having something like this through dinner as well. :) Also thinking of keeping it to a two minute maximum.

I just sent out an email to my bridesmaids asking them if they would like to speak but I wanted to send out a big email to all our guests that way nobody feels left out...but still respecting our timeframe.

Great minds think alike! Although I can't take credit - this was one of the few things my fiance was INSISTENT upon :)
