So, you've got the pleasure of being a maid of honor at a wedding. Let me be the first to say congratulations! It's always an honor to be a part of any wedding, let alone hold the title of one of the most important roles. With that important role also comes an important speech. Are you fully prepared to give yours? Are you confident in what you have prepared?
Do not worry if your speech is not in tip top shape. Here's 3 simple tips that will help you craft an excellent speech:
1) Use Speech Samples
Make sure you use pre-written wedding speeches to craft your speech around. These give you excellent ideas and will show you how other wedding speeches are usually done. Believe me when I say they work tremendously, because they do!
2) Create an Outline
Creating an outline will definitely help you figure out what you want to say and help you organize it in a way that your speech makes sense. It essentially takes all of the jumble and scattered ideas and helps mold them into a great story. Do not slack on the outline, as it is one of the most important parts to creating a speech.
3) Use Some Humor
Your speech can be sentimental, but it should have some laughs in it too. Try to use some humor in your speech to break up the emotion in the room. Plus, a little humor is always a good thing!
Beside an outline, like I said before, you definitely need to look into using a pre-written speech to follow. It will make a world of difference!
