TOP TIPS FROM YOUR WEDDING PLANNER: SPEECHES

We've all been through it, sat at a wedding where the speeches


We've all been through it, sat at a wedding where the speeches went on and on, we were hungry, desperate for the loo or both. Most weddings will have speeches that run for about 30 minutes in total, but every now and again you get those that go on longer.

Our recommendation is the use the following time ranges:

  • Best Man Speech: 5 to 7 minutes

  • Groom: 3 to 5 minutes

  • Father of the Bride: 3 to 5 minutes


In our experience anything longer than 7 mins and you will start to loose peoples attention.


During your welcome meeting we’ll ask you who will be doing speeches and in what order and how long you think they will take, we normally schedule 30 mins for the usual 3 speeches, however if you need longer have more spaces then its fine its just VERY important we know how long each speech will be approximately, so we can advise the venue when to have your dinner ready, if you are doing speech he’s. Before dinner. If we tell them speeches will be 30 mins and then they take an hour your food could be spoilt so its really important that we have a very good indication of how long each speech will take.
