Wedding Speeches and Wedding Toasts Made Simple
How To Open Your Wedding
Quotes can be a humorous, inspirational,
spiritual, or a religious way to kick start your wedding speech. The quote can
be from someone famous, your loved one, a friend, the Bible, or any other book.
Remember that these quotes can be used anywhere throughout the wedding speech.
Use as many as you feel are necessary.
Questions. Begin the wedding speech with a question,
and give the answer. “My father once asked me, ‘Tom, what would make you truly
happy in life?’ I looked at him blankly. He replied, ‘I can tell you that a
life spent with a partner that you believe is your soulmate can make a person
truly happy.’ Well, I believe that my brother has found that today with his new
wife, Jennifer, and he looks truly happy.”
POEM. A poem is a great way to begin a
speech. It can be one you created, or a favorite poem of your loved one. The
best poem to use is one that has strong meaning to you.
CONTINUING THE WEDDING SPEECH
The continuation, or body of the speech should follow the opening of
your rough draft or outline as closely as possible. Remember,
however, that you want your writing to have a conversational feel to
it. When you are done talking about one subject, move on to the
next topic in your outline. The more detailed your outline, the
faster your writing will occur. When you run out of thoughts
within a topic, just move to the next topic. You will be able to
edit these later.
COMPLETING THE SPEECH
You want the ending to be a few sentences that ties what you have said
together. You want your listeners to have a feeling that
everything has been closed and tied neatly together. You can
restate an important point or theme found throughout your speech, or
you can summarize how the bride and groom touched your life.
Asking a question is also a great way of ending the speech. JUST REMEMBER TO ALSO GIVE THE ANSWER.
The length of your wedding speech is up to you. Take the time
needed to say everything that you want to convey, but remember that
keeping the attention of the audience is important. You do not
want to ramble on too long. A great length is 3 to 5
minutes. This is anywhere from 1 to 3 pages, single-spaced.
Also keep in mind how quickly your delivery will be, because this will
very the lengths of both. This is why practicing is very crucial.
