As you can see, It’s been a major learning curve for me, but 4th time was a charm. Here is the rhyming poem Maid of Honor speech that I actually read.
Tips for writing a maid of honor speech
- Make a list of events you want to include in the speech.
- Type the alphabet below the list of events.
- I always do mine in chronological order.
- These rhyming couplets are in all 4 of my poems: say/ day, galore/more, fun/sun, said/wed… use those!
- Switch lines up if they don’t end in a good rhyming word. For ex., “Betty called to tell me she met a boy a work” Nothing good rhymes with work, so I switched the line to read, “Betty met a boy at work, she called to tell”. So many more words rhyme with tell.
- Steal my last 4 lines… Just change the “Christmas holidays 2010” and “September 17th” to whatever is true for your friend.

How cute are these corks turned place card holders?! Bethany used Corky Creations, but I know a few crafters who could whip these up too!
