Whether they make you laugh or cry, here are my top tips for wedding speeches:
Make notes! Yes it’s tempting to wing it, but trust me, you’ll appreciate a few notes in case you go blank.
Think about your audience, do you really, really, want to tell THAT story? (of course if the story is that good, just tell me later).
Chat to the kitchen first. With more and more couples having their speeches in between courses, if you are planning a 20 minute speech (not the longest I’ve heard) let the kitchen know so your food doesn’t get cold.
#ShowYourUniqueStyle yes this includes in your speeches. I’ve seen powerpoint presentations, life size cut outs, baby photos and not forgetting Jonny who wrote a song for his bride rather than giving a traditional speech.
