A special event like a wedding reception will always cheer up for everyone. So, when you are asked to deliver your speech in a wedding, you have to remember to make a ‘cheer up’ speech. It means you have to prepare an entertaining speech.
In order to deliver a well entertained speech, here are some tips for you to follow:
Plan your speech carefully
First you have to plan your speech. These activities will include think about the things you wanted to talk about, then write them down in a piece of paper. You can also use an index card. You always can start your speech with introducing yourself, compliment to the newly weds, stories about the newly weds or their parents ( it depends whom you know the best ). And you can always add funny stories in order to entertain the audience. At last, you will have to write down your toasts.
Practice your speech several times
After you finish to write all the things you wanted to say, it means that your speech is already to be practiced. Practice is meant to make your speech perfect. So, start practicing your speech by reading it in front of the mirror. Do this several times until you get used to deliver your speech well. You still feel awkward about the way you deliver your speech? It is time for you to get some help from your friends. You can practice in front of them. Practice until you feel comfortable to deliver your speech in front of larger audience.
Deliver your speech confidently
When it is time to deliver your speech, stand firmly in front of the audience. Be sure, be confident with yourself and all the practices you have did. It is advisable for you to first smile to the audience while introducing yourself.
