Your wedding is not just a union of two people, it’s also a union of two families. Most likely, each and every person at your reception has watched your relationship grow and has loved and supported you both from the beginning. “Thank you” speeches are the perfect way for you both to express your appreciation for the support that will surely continue into the new chapter of your lives together.
Writing a “thank you” speech can be intimidating, but we’re here to help give you all the best tips and tricks so that your speech is one to remember!
- Give the speech at the start of your reception
After your cocktail hours ends, your guests will move to the reception space. You most likely won’t have had a chance to greet many people outside of your bridal party at this point, so take that opportunity to welcome everyone to your wedding and to thank them for being there!
- Keep it short, sweet and simple
“Thank you” speeches don’t need to be long by any means. There is no wrong way to thank your loved ones for supporting your union. Let them know how much they mean to you, and let the celebration begin!
- Just remember: you’re speaking to your loved ones
It can be easy to overthink what you want to say, especially when you’re speaking to a crowd. At the end of the day, you’re there to celebrate with your closest friends and family. Speak from your heart, and the words will come naturally!
