How many weddings have you been to where the speeches ramble on for what seems like hours? Long, rambling speeches can get pretty tiresome, for you as well as your guests.
Think about it. You’ll all have just finished a big meal. Perhaps you’ll have had a few drinks, and you’ll have been up since the crack of dawn getting ready after not a lot of sleep! The last thing any of you need is a long speech sending you all off to sleep. This is a celebration, after all!
So, set a time limit for each speech. Ask your Dad, the best man and your groom to keep things short and snappy so you can all get back to enjoying the party. I’m sure they’ll be glad to wrap things up quickly as well!
