Writing A Wedding Speech


Giving a speech in public can be one of the greatest fears that you can imagine.  Giving a speech can be as frightening as the highest height imaginable!  In fact, some surveys have suggested that public speaking is the number one fear for many North Americans.  Some respondents to surveys about speech giving have even admitted that they would rather go out of their way to avoid any social situations in which speeches might be necessary.

So just why are speeches so frightening? 

Studies have suggested that most people are afraid of looking foolish or saying the wrong thing while giving a speech.  Those people who fear giving speeches find that they are being judged and looked at.  The pressure to give a speech can make some people feel nauseous, shaky, and have a sick feeling in their stomach.  People who suffer from a serious phobia of giving speeches may actually become violently ill before appearing in public. 

Despite all the problems with giving speeches most of us are expected to give a speech from time to time.  For many of us our first confrontation with giving speeches comes at a wedding.

Weddings are a time when everyone involved seems to be expected to give a speech.  While many people do so willingly others are more reserved about it because it can be hard to find just the right words to say that will be welcomed and enjoyed by the Bride, Groom and guests at the wedding, including the Bridal party.  The pressure to say the right things at a wedding can be tremendous burden when you’re required to come up with the perfect speech that is sure to capture the attention of everyone attending and be remembered years from now.
