You are nervous about delivering your maid of honor toast? Well don’ t be, because I will give you some tips to follow. The very first thing you need to do is to plan your speech. You have to plan about things you wanted to talk about. Planning your speech will include writing them in a piece of paper. Remember you have to plan your writing carefully, do not forget the essential issues about the groom that you want to share, your introduction, your special thanks for the newly weds or other persons, and so on.
Then, it comes the time for you to share your writing. It means that after finishing writing your speech you can always ask one of your friends to read it. You have to let your friend reads your writing in order to eliminate the mistakes you might have done in your writing. Let him/her read it slowly so that you can examine all your speech. Make some notes for any mistakes you did and change them immediately before you forget.
The third one is to practice your speech. Practice your speech alone in your room, use a mirror to see your mimics. Start by reading your speech slowly, see how well you pronounce them word by word. Do the practice several times until you feel comfortable to speak it out loud in front of audience.
The next part is to make sure you got everything in hand when it comes to delivering your speech. If you write your speech in an index card, make sure you bring it to the wedding reception. Pay attention to what you wear, make sure your appearance is appropriate for the wedding reception. Make sure, your dress does not get more attention than your speech. It means that you have to double-check your dress before delivering your speech. Also, you have to avoid drinking too much before delivering your speech. And then, when you are about to delivering your speech, stand firmly. Look at the audience with a smile on your face to introduce yourself.
At last, to end your speech, deliver your toasts to the newly weds, the parents of the both side, the audience, and so on.
