One of the most treasured—and amusing—traditions of weddings are the speeches, which usually take part in the reception and feature a sometimes inebriated friend, best man, relative or even bride and groom giving long and wordy toasts. If you need to write a wedding speech or give a toast at a wedding reception, it can be a nerve-wracking experience if you don’t enjoy speaking in front of people.
Luckily, there are plenty of resources online that can help you with free assistance in writing your wedding speech or toast, and a quick search on the Internet can lead you to the perfect words. There is really no shame in relying on an already-written wedding speech to express your feelings in a toast, and if you need help or are not a great writer then by all means draw on the experience of others!
If you have even the slightest writing skills, however, writing your own wedding speech for use in a toast at the reception is the better way to go. Whether you are the best man, a bridesmaid, or a friend of the bride or groom, the audience will simply appreciate it more if you inject some of your own genuine feelings and experiences into your wedding speech. Your wedding toast does not have to be dripping with sentiment, but the audience will be able to tell if you did it on your own.
I guarantee that no matter how badly you deliver your wedding speech, the audience and the bride and groom will be impressed if it truly comes from the heart. It’s important not to make a fool out of yourself, so don’t be tempted to drink too much before you give your wedding toast, even though you think it may relax you. Instead, give your wedding speech with a clear head, in a genuine tone, and be s confident as possible.
For some ideas of what to talk about when you give your wedding speech, think back on your time with the bride or groom and the significant moments you shared with them.Â Or, if you want, give examples that you have witnessed of the love that the bride and groom share together and why they will have a great marriage. The crown is guaranteed to love your wedding toast speech if you sprinkle it with true, and even amusing stories.
Keep you wedding speech brief and try not to overdo it or be too funny or crude. By staying tasteful, speaking from the heart, and telling the wedding reception audience about your experiences and memories of the bride and groom, you’ll deliver a great wedding toast. The happy couple will appreciate the effort you put into it, and the crowd will love the fact that you gave a genuine wedding toast speech from the heart.
