Here, the Speechy team, with Shai Hussein at the helm, have curated some of the best South Asian wedding speech videos online today to inspire you.
As we know, South Asian weddings are all about the “wow” factor – with their popping colours, movie set backdrops, exciting entertainment, and hundreds of guests – and these days, speeches are adding something extra special to proceedings.
Friends, family and the couple themselves are all grabbing the wedding mic and adding even more love and laughter to the day – as this collection of vids proves.
We hope the footage inspires you but if you’re still having trouble writing your speech, remember our team of amazing speechwriters are rated ‘Excellent’ on Trustpilot and we offer a bespoke speech writing service or edit service!
If you can get past the wobbly mobile phone camera, this dude is a character who knows how to tell a story. He also gets the quotient of humour to sentiment spot on.
A wonderful example of two cultures figuring the moment out together. This rather sweetly funny, family friendly speech seems funnier in Gujarati! We love the way the best man uses expressive body language to interact with the people he’s addressing. He’s also a great smiler.
While we wouldn’t necessary advise a twenty minute long speech which details the minutiae of your life with the groom, we do have a soft spot for this loving father’s seriously cool and beautiful tribute to his son at his gay wedding. His honesty and openness is infused with humour, as he gives a voice to the blessing of parenthood.
If that father of the groom speech had you going ‘awwww’, you might want to watch Vaibhav and Parag’s wedding highlights in full technicolour:
This trio of gorgeous bridesmaids do a great job of reminding everyone how amazing and loved the bride is. We appreciate the way all three keep their speeches concise and on point, and the inclusion of quotes and slightly irreverent marriage advice is a nice touch. However, we’d love to have heard some cheeky anecdotes about the bride. No one is that perfect.
This guy’s speech has it all – confidence, anecdotes, great sound quality, well-rehearsed, smooth-talking and yet… it’s a bit intense right?
Something gives us the impression he’s used to delivering marketing pitches. We do like his concluding remarks though: ‘if anything goes wrong, screw it, just be happy’.
There’s really no getting away from best men reading their speech off their phones. It’s all good, as long you make the effort to mostly learn it first.
This guy comes across very natural, adlibbing and pausing in all the right places. He also gets the balance right between honouring his bromance with the groom and saying lovely things about the bride.
