How to Write a Wedding Speech

Giving a speech at any occasion is a difficult task, but being honoured with such a responsibility at a wedding party is even more difficult. You can become nervous at the moment you imagine that an audience of about 200 and plus people will be expectantly waiting for what you have to say in an environment of pin-drop silence.

Irrespective of the question how you approach the task of speech delivery on the day and how you do it, it is always recommended to have your speech well written and ready. There is no certain prescriptive rules for start and ending of the speech and what you should be saying in the middle, but a good speech has all basic ingredients. Make sure you restrict your piece of writing to the demand of the occasion.

A good speech has some details about you, more about the wedded couple and the parents and friends and a bit of humour to keep the audience attentive to what you are saying.

The benefit of having your speech in written is that you avoid stopping in the middle with your mouth open to say anything but you do not know what to say since you are lost.

    You should start speech with an introduction to yourself, how you are related to the wedded couple and how long you have been known to each other. Do not drag the introduction part to cover your details only. You better keep your introduction a line or couple of sentence and focus on the couple more, because they are the integral part of the speech.
