Girl, this is your day. Well, yours and your groom’s, of course. So the short answer is – absolutely! “Although it is not typical for a bride to give a speech during her reception, guests will always appreciate hearing from her,” says Jennifer Gowing of Evermore Weddings and Events. “Whether that is in the form of a speech or in a heartfelt written thank you note, either one can be just as meaningful.” A couple of tips to keep in mind: Try not to read a speech word for word – speak from the heart. Short and sincere is best. And most importantly, have fun!
