Traditionally it's always been one (or both) fathers, the groom and finally the best man who give a speech at wedding. This stems from the good ol’ days when women were generally seen and not heard at weddings.
But it’s 2017 and times are a changin’! Couples these days are more inclined to want to do things on their own terms and that often means tweaking or opting out of the wedding traditions that simply don’t work for them, speeches included.
We’re seeing grooms with best women and brides with men of honour, mixed bridal parties and many more women taking the microphone, which makes a refreshing change form the all male line-up.
So if you're a woman preparing to give a wedding speech and looking for some tips then read my advice on How To Give A Great Bride's (Or Bridesmaid's) Speech At A Wedding in the Huffington Post.
