I don’t need a wedding speechwriter…do I?
If you’re confident, calm, ready to deliver a speech at the wedding, then you don’t.
If, however, you’re not prepared, you’re worried about what you should say, and the idea of standing up in front of a room full of a few hundred of your closest friends and family fills you with dread, you might want to read on…
Here are 5 sure-fire ways to tell you need help writing your wedding speech
- You wake up in a cold sweat in the middle of the night because you just have NO JOKES…NO JOKES AT ALL! In your dream, you’re standing, silently, with the microphone in your hand. Every single joke you’ve ever heard has left your head. Tumbleweed is blowing across the room, and the bride looks like she’s about to burst into tears.
- Your eye twitches every time someone mentions the words ‘wedding’, ‘reception’, ‘bride’, ‘groom’, ‘best man, ‘father of the bride’, or cake. This can’t go on. Your other half thinks you’re winking at everyone, and your mother keeps ringing you to ask if you’re OK.
- Everyone keeps asking about what’s in the speech…and you’re staring at a blank screen and a blinking cursor with a dry mouth. You can only go on telling people it’s a secret for so long…
- You desperately want to channel Bob Monkhouse, Kevin Bridges, or Tim Vine. Instead, your material makes you sound like a drunk bloke ranting down the pub…or your maiden aunt. There’s no happy medium!
- The bride keeps giving you the evils every time you see her. Her father’s making the ‘I’m watching you’ sign with his eyes and his fingers, just like Robert de Niro in Meet The Parents.
So, what can you do?
Run…run for the hills…
No, seriously, you need some help. You can ask a professional wedding speech writer, just like the Speechmonkey, to help you.
They will ask you about the bride and groom, how they met, their families, what they love to do, and any in-jokes the couple has. They’ll talk about the sort of relationship you have with them (jokey with lots of banter, for example) and how they might react. Then, they can help you decide if the speech is a gentle teasing or a full-on, no holds barred roast!
Your speechwriter will draft you a speech and will make changes if you feel you need them.
A good writer will also help you deliver it, giving you useful tips on how to present it.
