Writing a maid of honor speech is easily the most difficult responsibility of the job. After coordinating the bachelorette party, helping the bride choose the perfect cocktail dresses, and calming the pre-wedding jitters, the Maid of Honor must give a speech the bride, the groom, and everyone in the audience will always remember.
You want it to mean something to the bride, no matter how long you've known each other. You probably want to make her cry (in a good way, of course), along with the rest of the audience. You want to show her how much you love her, how happy you are for her, and convey all of your emotions in the best possible way. If that isn't a difficult task, I don't know what is.
If you and the bride-to-be are book-lovers, odds are you've bonded over quite a few books in the time you've known each other. Maybe you met when you were kids and swapped favorite picture books, or maybe it wasn't until you were teenagers that you started bonding over literary titles. Either way, there are so many great quotes and sections in books to pull from while writing a heartfelt speech, and I can promise it'll help inspire you if you feel stuck. Here are six excellent excerpts from children's books to use in your Maid of Honor speech:
"But ultimately there comes a moment when a decision must be made. Ultimately two people who love each other must ask themselves how much they hope for as their love grows and deepens, and how much risk they are willing to take…It is indeed a fearful gamble…Because it is the nature of love to create, a marriage itself is something which has to be created, so that, together we become a new creature.
To marry is the biggest risk in human relations that a person can take…If we commit ourselves to one person for life, this is not, as many people think, a rejection of freedom; rather it demands the courage to move into all the risks of freedom, and the risk of love which is permanent; into that love which is not possession, but participation…It takes a lifetime to learn another person…When love is not possession, but participation, then it is part of that co-creation which is our human calling, and which implies such risk that it is often rejected."
