This question already has an answer here:

Today I sent 1.5 BTC to an exchange but forgot to add a transaction fee, the Qt wallet didn't even prompt me with one and I just clicked on Yes. Now it's been over 2 hours and it's not confirmed (as you would have guessed).

I kinda needed it to reach the exchange quickly (I know, my fault), but now is there any way to speed this up or do I have to wait it out for days to arrive at the destination?

You can wait it out. Both of your inputs are around 1BTC so your transaction will likely be bumped up to "high priority" status in the next 12-24 hours.
