It was amazing and probably one of the best and most memorable speeches at any ceremony of this kind. The maid of honor got the whole crowd laughing with the song, telling everyone about her sister’s life and most embarrassing moments she experienced.

Tips for such speeches

Great speeches are usually those that are genuine and from the heart. Though others may prefer to research and copy everything from them, it’s good to make one that means something to you and the person you are addressing or talking about.

When delivering a speech during a ceremony, it’s good to add a bit of humor or a few minor secrets about the bride or groom once in a while to keep the audience well entertained.

The key is to remember that a little goes a long way. So, make sure to stop when necessary and not expose that which is not supposed to be released to everyone. No one likes a blabbermouth!

This comes without saying but ensure that you are sober during the speech to avoid embarrassing the groom, bride, and mostly yourself. Everyone will remember that one person who gave a speech while being drunk.

It’s mandatory to keep to time, the speech should not be too short or too long but just right. It ends up being a snooze show when one continues to go on and on and on.

Make sure to go through and practice the speech over and over again to get rid of any errors and avoid repetition or else it will seem monotonous.
