                                           Making A Wedding Speech
                                               By Kirsten Hawkins

   Sooner or later, at some point in your life, you may be called upon to speak at someone’s wedding.
Perhaps you’ll be the proud father of the bride or someone’s best man. Whatever the case may be, it
can be a good idea to know how to make the appropriate wedding speech. Some people may think
these points are obvious, but they’re not the ones that are giving the speech. If you’re not much for
public speaking, you may find these tips helpful if you ever have to speak at someone’s wedding.

Keep it Short:

The worst part of any wedding celebration is when some long winded buffoon drones on and on during
his opportunity to make a wedding speech. No one wants to listen to your ramblings for forty minutes,
no matter how interesting you may think they are. People are at the wedding to share in the couple’s
joy and have a good time. No one will be able to do either if you talk for too great a length of time. Try
to keep your speech under five minutes long if possible.

Save the jokes for Henny Youngman:

Public speakers often like to try and break the ice with a joke, have you ever noticed that? Have you
also noticed that the jokes are usually bad? These people have professional speech writers working for
them. You do not. Unless you are truly a funny person (your name is Robin Williams, for example),
steer clear of the jokes. If you do have to make jokes during your wedding speech, try to make them
appropriate for the occasion. Jokes about weddings in general or the people in attendance will always
work better than jokes of the “a guy walks into a bar” variety. Also remember that jokes at the groom’s
expense are funny while those at the bride’s expense are not. That’s just the way it is.

Sentimentality Works:

People get all warm, fuzzy, and gushy at weddings. Sharing sentimental stories about the couple and
how in love they are, about your own wedding, or any other appropriately smarmy topic will have them
eating out of your hand. Make the focus of your wedding speech the subject of love and roses and
good feelings and puppies and you can’t go wrong.

This Day is Not About You:

This is perhaps the most important thing to keep in mind when preparing and making a wedding
speech. No matter how popular you are, no one is there to see you. The wedding day is all about the
bride and groom. This is their day in the sun, so to speak. Keep your stories and anecdotes focused on
the happy couple so that they can stay that way while you are speaking.

Keeping these topics in mind will help you be successful when making a wedding speech. With the
right ideas and a minimal amount of preparation, even the most tongue tangled individual can come off
like The Great Orator at least for five minutes or so when speaking at a wedding.

                                       A Maid of Honor Wedding Speech Example
                                                            By Rafi Michael

Wedding ceremony speeches are many as people try to congratulate and advise the newly weds. One
such speech is the maid of honor wedding speech. It comes after the best man's speech and it should
focus on delighting the bride. To give a speech that is memorable and one that will please the couple
and the guests, one can prepare adequately for it. Topics that are covered in the maid of honor
wedding speech should be from the heart. One way of starting the speech is by letting the people know
how you know the bride. One can let people know how you met the bride and how you became friends.
One can also tell the guests what the bride would tell you about the groom.

 Having short wedding speeches is always appealing to the guests and the maid of honor wedding
speech is not any different. One should keep the speech brief and refer to the wedding vows made in
the ceremony. The maid of honor wedding speech is brief because the audience still has to listen to
other speeches after yours just as they have already listened to other speeches before yours. A maid
of honor wedding speech should be lively, enthusiastic, and sincere. Saying something favoring the
bride is advisable. One can also congratulate the bridal couple and tease the bride a bit. The speech
can have some love quotes that dwell on the couple's joyous celebration. Although the speech is
personal, it should not embarrass the bride. You are her friend and this should be portrayed in the
speech that you give. Throwing in some love quotes in the speech is also advised.

 Writing the maid of honor wedding speech beforehand allows someone have time to go through it and
make some corrections. After writing it, you can ask someone else to read it and offer his or her
opinion. Having a written speech prevents someone from mumbling and stammering as one looks for
words to fill their speech. If you do not want to have a sheaf of papers that you are trying to get in
order, cards will work out well too. A maid of honor wedding speech example is as follows.

 ''Ladies and gentlemen, my name is ______. _____ and I have known each other since college. Since
then we have shared memorable moments and her wedding is no exception. _____ has always been
there for me. I remember one time when... When she told me she was getting married ... Her wonderful
nature and patience are some of her wonderful characteristics... I would just like the groom to know
that in _____, he has found a worthy companion who will honor her wedding vows and...As I end my
speech, I leave with this quote 'may the roof above you never fall in and may you both never fall out'.''

 A good maid of honor wedding speech tries to incorporate all the positive things about the bride but
this should not be exaggerated. Keeping a light tone during this short wedding speech will not bore
