Wedding speech nerves are not an uncommon thing. A lot of people face this type of problem during weddings. The one that gives the speech needs to stand up and speak in front of hundreds of people. What’s more, you need to make the speech interesting for everyone because you definitely want to avoid that awkward stare that says “your speech is terrible”. Getting wedding speech nerves is what makes everything go the wrong way. The truth is, whether a speech is good or bad depends on the way you deliver it. It doesn’t matter if the speech is the best in the world if your voice trembles and everyone looks at you like a fool that spoiled the wedding ceremony. Even a bad speech can sound exciting and great if it is delivered well. We have to admit that it is rare for someone to act completely natural while standing in front of a crowd and taking. Most people find giving speech embarrassing and scary. However, if you find a way to calm your nerves you can enjoy the part where you give the speech and entertain yourself and the other guests at the same time.
You got to accept the thought that the crowd (the wedding guests) wants to hear your wedding speech or in other words, they want to hear about your friendship with the groom or the bride and a crazy story back from when you were young. Be sure that everyone will carefully listen and given the circumstances (people drink at weddings), your speech doesn’t have to be that funny, tipsy people will laugh at the funny things you say.
Writing a speech takes time, but all the effort will be in vain if you don’t practice it before you go stand up in front of everyone. You can stand in front of a mirror and practice. By practicing you might notice if you are making any mistakes and you can correct yourself.
Making people laugh is hard, but if you manage to do so they will most certainly love your speech. You don’t have to be the funny guy but you can think of a funny experience and share it with the crowd. You will break the ice and after you see them fighting for breath you can continue with your speech.
Don’t be too confident. A lot of people make the mistake of going with the flow and not previously writing a speech and when the moment comes, they have no idea what to say. Sit down before the wedding and write the speech down. It doesn’t matter if you are positive that you will memorize everything, it won’t cost you a thing to make cryptic notes.
Some individuals may make you feel uncomfortable while you give the speech. Try to ignore them and focus on the speech. By cutting everything but the bride and groom off you will calm down and won’t get the wedding speech nerves.
