One definition of the word “marriage” is a social union or legal contract between people that creates kinship. It is when couples, in front of a legal authority or in front of God, exchange vows to stay together through all of life’s ups and downs. Now, if you are the bride’s sister and you were named as the bride’s maid of honor, then here are pretty good examples of short maid of honor speeches for sister.
To begin with, introduce yourself to the wedding guests. Say something like “Good evening, friends, relatives, and guests. As I am not nearly as popular as my beautiful sister, the bride, I will begin my maid of honor speech by introducing myself. I am, for those who do not know me, the bride’s very proud little sister.”
After introducing yourself, you may thank all your guests in behalf of the newly wed couple. Say something that goes like this: “Now, in behalf of my sister and brother-in-law, I would like to thank all of you for being here today. A wedding is one of the most joyous occasions a person will probably celebrate, but it won’t ever be as joyous without the people you love and care about to share it with. So, I know just how much your presence means to the bride and groom. I know that some of you have even travelled long hours just to be here on time. But I would also like to remember some of our friends and family who cannot be here. Well, there’s always my wedding to look forward to.”
When you’re finished thanking all your guests for their presence, you may then proceed with expressing further how happy you are for the bride and groom. You may address your sister by saying, “To my beautiful sister, I have always looked up to you even when we were little kids. And now that you’re married, you just can’t imagine how proud I am of you.”
“More than that, I am truly happy that you have finally found the man who will love you forever. I believe that a wonderful life awaits the both of you, and for that I am pretty much excited. You were always a great big sister to me. Ladies and gentlemen, our bride here is pretty amazing and her husband is just so lucky to have her.”
As the bride’s sister, I’m sure that you can come up with so many heartfelt words to say on your sister’s wedding day. This is just one of the many examples of short maid of honor speeches for sister that you can use as a guide in making your own.
