Maid of Honor Sentimental Speech
Let me first say that it’s an honor to have the opportunity to give a toast for my friend of [number of years you have been friends with bride], [name of bride]. She is truly an amazing person and I couldn’t be happier that she found such a great match; and that they’re tying the knot today.
For those of you who don’t know me well, you might wonder how [name of bride and I] became friends initially. Well, the answer to that question is actually quite funny. You see, [tell charming anecdote about how you and the bride became friends]. Yes, it’s funny, but that’s how we met. And ever since, we’ve been close friends.
Now, how about [name of groom]? Isn’t he wonderful? Isn’t he handsome, charming, and witty? Yes, he is all of these things; and that is exactly what made me so jealous when [name of bride] met him. Not only was I jealous that she had found a truly meaningful relationship, but I was worried that I would get pushed out!
That’s always how these things seem to work: the girl falls in love with the guy and slowly falls out of touch with her friends. As [name of bride] told me more and more about this guy she met and was dating, I became more and more sure that this would eventually happen.
But to my surprise, it didn’t. Instead, I made another great friend, [name of groom], who is truly an amazing match for my best friend. And that’s when I stopped being jealous and started being happy for my old friend and my new friend.
You guys are truly meant for each other; and I love you both. Now, let’s lift up our glasses and toast. To the happiness of the bride and groom. Cheers!
