Speeches For Weddings - Different Kinds of Speeches For Weddings


Visitors: 217

Trying to decide what kind of speech to give at an upcoming wedding? It can be a difficult task, as there are three possibilities for speeches for weddings. There are a lot of different tones you can use and routes to take but not all of them may be appropriate for your event.

Things to keep in mind:

First consider who will be in attendance. Will there be lots of children who shouldn't hear cuss words? If so you might avoid a questionable story or lewd joke? Is the group very religious and might be offended by certain references to other spiritual leaders or jokes about religion?

Here are some pros and cons for different kinds of speeches for weddings.

1. Funny speech:

Pro: Everyone loves to laugh. It lightens the mood and makes people pay attention to what you're saying. Funny speeches sort of bring all the guest together as an audience. It becomes an act or performance of sorts.

Con: You may not be as funny as you think or your sense of humor may not click well with the rest of the guests. Lastly your funny story might be embarrassing or cruel to some people there and then it's no longer funny at all.

2. Sentimental Speech:

Pro: its heart warming and everyone wants to feel loved and see the bride or groom tear up because they're so emotional. It shows that your really care about these people.

Con: You may be excluding your audience if it is too personal or emotional. They might not understand what you're talking about at all.

3. Serious Speech:

Pro: There may be a really good message that you want to express or some advice for the happy couple and that's something everyone can learn from and respect.

Con: It may sound like you're preaching to them or scorning them if the speech takes an unexpected turn or if there's any hint of disapproval in your voice or diction.

Now you can choose between the different kinds of speeches for weddings. Whatever you choose to do just let it be and have fun with it! Good luck!
