Tips on Writing Wedding Speech


One of the most interesting parts of any wedding is the wedding speech. Whether its coming from the best man or maid of honor, it is a highly important part of the entire day. Delivering a good speech can keep the guests entertained and truly make the bride or groom feel honored and loved. Most people stress at the thought of giving a very public, but yet touching speech, at a close friend or relatives wedding. Keeping a few tips in mind can guarantee that the speech is delivered in an effortless and unique way.

One of the most important things to remember when giving a wedding speech is that it needs to be kept short and sweet. Many people have the tendency to go too long when they get nervous. Writing the speech and practicing it ahead of time can help make sure that it is kept at an acceptable length.

The speech should also be appropriate for the audience. Stories and jokes told need to be acceptable for both family members and friends of the couple to hear. Telling a story that makes the family or couple feel uncomfortable is a sure way to kill the mood of the event.

It is best to keep the speech lighthearted and fun. Keeping the focus on telling stories that represent exactly what the groom and bride are about. It is also highly important to remember to wish the couple the absolute best throughout their lives together. It should not be a speech focusing on the couples past, but instead a speech sending them off into their future.

    More people should write something down before they try to give a speech at a wedding. I have seen many embarrasing moments.

    Almost all of the things you point out is supprisingly legitimate and that makes me wonder the reason why I hadn’t looked at this in this light before. This article really did switch the light on for me personally as far as this particular topic goes. But there is actually just one factor I am not too comfy with so whilst I try to reconcile that with the actual core theme of your position, allow me see what all the rest of the visitors have to point out.Very well done.
