Wedding Speeches Tips on How to Give a Great Speech


Visitors: 293

Most people look forward to hearing the wedding speeches. If you're a guest they can be an ideal way to relax after a delicious meal. But many people worry if they actually have to present a speech. These ideas will help you actually enjoy the process of making a speech.

Practice makes perfect speeches. It's never too early to start jotting ideas down for your speech. You can then come back at a later and arrange all your ideas into the perfect speech.

Memorize the introduction and finish of your speech. This will give you a self-confident start to your speech and a rousing close. You should know what you are going to say in the middle section but it is OK to refer to your brief notes.

One of the big things that people have to try and control is their nerves. Have some notes to help as a memory aid. This will help if your mind ‘goes blank’. They are good to use as reminders but don't read them word for word. Jot them out on card rather than paper. Then if your hands start to tremble a little, it is not quite so obvious.

It is simple to get the audience to laugh during your wedding speech. Try to remember some funny tales about the couple or the groom. The best man can make a few jokes about the groom in his speech. Avoid private jokes that only some of the audience will understand. Include all the guests, or leave the story out.

Enjoy your time making a wedding speech. You will find that you are presenting to a friendly audience and all the guests want you to succeed. They just want to enjoy the occasion, so help them to do it. Many people have sat down after giving their speech and wondered what all the fuss was about because they enjoyed it that much.
