Attending the wedding of sister can be a lot of fun because you just get
to sit back and let her soak up all the attention and love on her big
day. Even if you have always been competitive, her wedding is one day
where you want her to shine. Many sisters are so busy sitting back
watching all of the planning for the big day that they forget that they
also have something important to plan for: a sister of the bride speech.
If you happen to be the maid or matron of honor you have probably thought
about this, but it is also customary for the sister of the bride to give
a speech and wish her sister and her new brother in law well in their new
life together.

The sister of the bride speech process isn’t all that difficult really;
you just need to break it down. If you aren’t the maid of honor you may
just need to make a quick sister speech at the wedding and then you can
pass on the microphone to the next family member to let them sweat a bit!
Still, you should have something planned so that your nerves don’t get
the best of you. Your speech needn’t be overly polished or cheesy if that
is not your style, then again if you want to get sentimental you can!

It’s a good idea to start out with formal congratulations. You can tell
the bride and the groom that you were just as nervous as they were, and
that you are glad that all of their hard work and planning has turned out
so beautifully. Your sister may like hearing from you that things look
great, and are exactly as she planned. Then, you’ll want to make the
speech more personal, since this is your sister that you are speaking to.
If you have a story about weddings from when you were young, like how you
used to share your fantasy wedding ideas with one another or something
like that it will spark fond memories for your sister and share a little
something with the rest of the family and friends and the reception.
Personalizing the speech is important, because you aren’t just that fifth
cousin who was invited; you are the sister of the bride!
To close the speech you can tell your sister that you can only hope to
look as beautiful as she does when you get married, if you aren’t
already. Also, welcome your new brother in law to the family. If you
share a common sense of humor don’t hesitate to make a few clean jokes
and then congratulate the couple and pass the torch to the next family
member so that they can express their congratulations as well.

Many sisters feel as though they need to write some prose or something to
that effect for a sister of the bride speech, but that is not necessary.
Of course, if you want to write a poem for the new couple, that would be
great and very sincere. But, you can go casual and simply tell your
sister and brother in law that you are happy for them! Since you are the
sister, toast wedding congratulations and a bit more and you are off the
hook. Just make it sincere and let both your sister and your brother in
law know that you are happy for them, in whatever style most suits both
you and them.
