Just like you, I was also very distressed when I found out that I am going to deliver a speech at my own wedding. The reason I was distressed was because I have not written anything since I got out of school. I thought, “How can I make a good bride speech if I had no practice whatsoever?” Good thing I found some guide to speech writing online. Following the guide carefully, I was able to make a very good bride’s speech that my husband can be proud of. Here are some of the steps that I followed:
1. Make multiple drafts of your speech. Remember that a draft is not the final product. When making a first draft, disregard grammar and spelling initially. Just free write as long as you can, then you can edit the text later.
The best way for you to make a draft is to use a good word processor. If you can’t afford expensive office suites then you can just use Google Docs. It’s free and it has everything you need for writing your speech.
2. Make a single topic and stick to it. In order for you to make a short and memorable bride’s speech or toast you must have a single unifying theme. A single theme will allow you to focus your writing and not go astray with a lot of unnecessary tangents.
For example, you can have a theme about marriage being fun but full of responsibilities. You can then tell anecdotes or inspirational stories as much as you want as long as it revolves around the single theme mentioned.
3. Use conversational English. Do not use hundred dollar words that can only be found in a dictionary. Just use casual English as if you are just talking to your audience. This will allow you to connect better with your audience. After all, your audience are of different educational background, you don’t want to alienate anyone, on the contrary, you want to draw in everyone to your speech.
I followed the tips and tricks above and I made a good showing of myself. I made a good speech and I delivered it perfectly. You too can make your own bride speech, just follow the instructions above. If you need more tips and tricks to bride’s speech writing and delivery, click here.
