Debating doing a thank you speech after our grand entrances at the reception? I was wondering if it would be weird for me (the bride) to do a thank you speech before dinner is served after the grand entrance? We will still be doing best man/maid of honor speeches as dinner is finishing up, but was thinking I could thank guests for coming and maybe say a short prayer before dinner, would this be okay or should I wait to say thank you until after the MOH/BM speeches (they are the only ones talking) thanks!
I think it would be fine, but I can say I've always seen the best man and MOH say their toasts before dinner followed by either the bride or groom saying a thank you speech. I've never seen the thank you speech before the best man or MOH toasts.
So we arent doing moh bm speeches, but I (the bride lol) will be doing a thank you for coming speech, instead of going table to table to greet everyone. My fh may say a few words but hes more of a numbers kind of guy so the words fall more on me lol.
I plan to have our grand entrance followed by our first dance then a short welcome/thank you before dinner. I think a prayer would be great before dinner but we aren't that religious. Your plan sounds great.
