Wedding DJ Melbourne – Creating The Perfect Wedding Speech
As a Wedding DJ Melbourne, I have heard many speeches before. I have also helped people prepare a wedding speech. Trust me, it is very different when giving the speech yourself.
The world changes when you are on the other side of the table. What you had been listening to before must now be delivered by you. You need all of your confidence on the day. The thought may even cross your mind – ‘I wish I wasn’t here’ or ‘why somebody just didn’t invent a time machine?’
Giving a wedding speech doesn’t need to be as hard as it is made out to be. If you follow a particular plan to achieve this, you will not only be able to deliver a perfect speech, you will have fun with it too.
Firstly, keep in mind the need for preparation when creating your own wedding speech. Prepare thoroughly – not at the last minute, but rather right from the time you have been chosen to be the Best Man or Maid of Honor. The same thing applies if you are a parent. Allow as much time as you can to plan.
Wedding Speeches can be fun or emotional.
Write down all the ideas you have for the speech. Even if some wild idea pops up, don’t reject it. You can always change it later. Decide on the length of time you plan to spend on speech delivery. Remember, even if you plan a short speech, it is going to require a good amount of time to prepare. Once you decide on the points to be covered in the speech, write them down in the planned sequence. Convert these ideas into sentences. Once you have prepared your speech, practice it as many times as possible before the day of the wedding. As a matter of fact, as a Wedding DJ Melbourne, I practice all my speeches and intros for at least 2 weeks before the wedding. I have them organised in advance to prevent mistakes on the day.
A mirror is an excellent companion for such situations. Rehearsing in front of the mirror can help build your confidence. Keep looking at yourself while practicing the speech. While you are actually delivering the speech, it is never a good idea to read it completely from your notes. A better strategy is to prepare an index of ideas on a small note pad and then use them to prompt the speech that you prepared.
If you are still worried on the big day you can always ask your Wedding DJ Melbourne to help you with a practice run through and get his feedback to help make the speech go smoothly.
