Any wedding speech is nerve wrecking. Making a speech in front
of all your loved ones can be an extremely nervous experience and
often this is the reason why so many people screw it up. The simple
truth is that even a bad speech that's delivered well will do the
job just fine. Unfortunately even the best speech in the world
that's delivered badly will make you look like a fool and
potentially spoil the entire wedding ceremony.
Nervousness is something that affects all of us. Even the best
public speakers get nervous. There is something about getting up in
front of an audience that is both scary and embarrassing. The
difference between a good speaker and a bad speaker is all about
how they handle their nerves. Here are some easy tips to help you
cope with your wedding speech nerves.
1. Be prepared.
There's an old saying that if you fail to prepare, you prepare to
fail. If you are one of those guys that think they can just "wing
it" and make it up when you get there, then you are in for a
humiliating experience. You need to sit down and actually think
about your speech. Write it out and make some cryptic notes that
you can keep with you during your speech.
2. Forget about your audience.
Sometimes the very thought of who is going to be there is enough to
work you up into a frenzy. Knowing that this or that person will
have their eyes on you can be scary and sometimes it even consumes
your mind. Its better to cut all that out. Focus on the speech and
block out individuals in the audience completely.
The opening of your speech is the most important. If you can break
the ice on a positive note and get the audience t relax then you
will be relaxed. This is where a good joke comes in. Start on a
cheerful and funny note and everybody will be relaxed. If you can
get y audience to laugh it will calm your nerves down
Being nervous is a self reinforcing thing. The more nervous you
are, the more nervous you will get. Have you ever seen someone
break down completely on stage? Most of the time it is because of
this. You need to nip it in the but and stop nerves before it even
