    One of my good friends was a MOH in her friend’s wedding as well. What she did for a toast was talk about the good times her friend and her had shared together (even in the past year) and said how happy she was that the bride found her new best friend and that they are going to be living happily ever after. She wished them the best of luck in the future and talked about how happy she was for the both of them…Good Luck.

    Talk about this woman’s overwhealming courage .. the courage to ask a person she’s known for a year to be one of the biggest parts of the wedding. LOL and J/K. You could mention how you two met and fast became such good friends etc. you could tell a funny story or two and offer a nice toast. That should be sufficient.

    I think you should say something like,” Shes just been the greatest friend, always there when I need her, her husbands a lucky guy, I’m happy that shes found that special someone to spend the rest of her life with, no one deserves it more than her, except maybe me (joke part). I think you should keep it about 2 to 5 minutes. Not so long that people start losing interest or tuning you out, but don’t make it too short because then it sounds impersonal & like you spent no time on it.

    I hope I gave you a few ideas to work with, break a leg!!!

    As the Maid of Honor, your speech mainly concerns your relationship with the Bride.
    Introduce yourself to the guests at the beginning of your speech as not everyone may know who you are, thank your friend for choosing you to be her MOH. Talk about memories and or experiences you have shared, these can be humorous, explain what makes her such a good friend, how lucky the Groom is to have her and also what a great couple they make and why.

    You may consider reciting an appropriate poem about friendship or marriage.

    Finally make a toast.
