And Rachel, I love you, too, for not only being such an incredible partner for my Haley, but for being a great friend to me also.
I know you didn’t expect that dating Haley would include helping her flaky friend after she locked her keys in the car three times in one month, but you are a doll for doing so with a smile and only laughing at me a little.
Aka you haven’t even begun to think about delivering what is going to be a five-star, ultra-stellar toast at the wedding reception. You’re sitting there like, “Stephanie, I’ve got this. But for the rest of you who are like like, “OMG GIRL WHY DO I HAVE TO GIVE A SPEECH PUBLIC SPEAKING MAKES ME CRY I CAN’T DO IT WHAT DO I DO,” I got you.
Chances are, if you’re recently appointed to your role, you’re probably still adjusting to your awesome new title and potentially many and varied appointments and duties.
Haley, oblivious to all of this, thought Rachel really liked hockey so she enlisted my brother to teach her more about the game. The jersey belonged to her Uncle Mike, and Aunt Laura gave it to her as a reminder of him after he passed away. However, once these two worked on their communication skills, they had a new favorite hobby to do together…
I’ve been mentally writing my maid of honor speech since the day my BFF and I met in second grade and she helped me get off the bus and I will finish it tonight, ten months before the wedding, and it will be perfection.” And that’s cool! So let’s break it down: In its simplest form, the maid of honor speech is one to four minutes wherein you will wax poetic about how much you love your BFF, how you can’t believe that she and her partner found each other but that they are so perfect together, and how you can’t wait to see what kind of life they will build together. That said, your maid of honor speech is not the time to try out your future career as a stand-up comedian.
You’ll throw in a few anecdotes (tales from summer camp or college, erring on the side of caution and eschewing details that no one except the two of you need to know). Instead, try to start writing your speech the month before the wedding so that you can practice on a friend (not the one who is getting married) or partner, and adjust as needed. No one is expecting Maya Angelou to suddenly appear and speak through you, but they probably are expecting something heartfelt and sincere.
