While you may be nervous at the thought of making a speech at a wedding, rest assured this is probably the only time that you will have a completely welcoming and positive audience. Think of all the speeches made across the world every day to restless crowds, hostile audiences and bored people. You on the other hand are talking to people who want to hear what you are going to say. The wedding speeches are one of the ‘talk after’ points of every wedding, so you want to say something memorable.
Although you may be addressing a large number of people, each and every one of them is rooting for you as much as for their most loved sports team. After all, they are your guests or at least the guests of your friend’s or family and are listening to you speak because of the great, wonderful and loving marriage that is taking place on this special day.
Less is definitely more. Brevity is the soul of wit. And if you are nervous, then a short speech once started will finish sooner. Short and funny is better than long and boring.
