My daughter (20 years old) is my Maid of Honor and has flat out told me she hates public speaking and would rather not speak. LOL How important is that speech from her? Should we offer that to someone else? my fiance and I will both say a few words and so will the best man. thoughts?

    I didnt ask anyone to make a speech lol hoping to keep that down to minimum. The two that are making a speech they have been given a 5 minute maximum. I'll make the speech for us thanking everyone for coming and such definitely keeping then short and sweet. It wouldn't have hurt my feelings if no one talked 馃槄

    If you have a close friend or a guest whom you have known a long time they would also be good choices.

    I didn't have a MOH so I asked each of my bridesmaids if they were comfortable doing a speech. 2 said no and 1 said yes. If you have other bridesmaids you could ask one of them to do it? But I wouldn't make your daughter do it if she's uncomfortable

    If she doesn't want to speak and doesn't feel comfortable doing so, she doesn't have to. This day in age anything goes!
