10 Tips for Wedding Speeches

10 Tips for Wedding Speeches

Wedding speeches can make or break a wedding celebration, so it's important to prepare well and deliver a speech that brings everyone together.

Let's talk about wedding speeches! The best speeches:

1. are usually short and sweet: 5-10 minutes

2. create happy vibes

3. find positive things to say - they don't offend anyone

4. focus mainly on the newlywed's relationships rather than simply being boys/girls telling stories about the stupid but fun things they did in their childhood and teens

5. have a few appropriate thank yous and an overall 'thank you, everyone', but don't include a long, exhaustive, and exhausting list - write personal cards instead

6. acknowledge the work of parents, grandparents and other key people in bringing the couple to this stage of life and making them who they are

7. are witty if you are genuinely funny, and sincere and heartwarming if you aren't!

8. use original humour rather than the standard jokes for wedding speeches that you have found on Google that most people have already heard!

9. include a song, poem or rap if you have that talent!

10. include a few insightful comments from other people if you are speaking on behalf of others
