How to Rock Your Groom’s Speech

By Claire

I don’t purport to be an expert at giving speeches (far from it) but as a professional wedding-junkie, I thought I might be able to pass along a little sage advice on the subject.

Groom giving a speech at a wedding

You see, I’m not the world’s most confident speaker (understatement of the year) and at my own wedding I was faced with either giving an amazing speech to show my wife how much I love her, or spending a very sad honeymoon night alone.  My nerves were shredded. I couldn’t eat a bite beforehand; despite the amazing feast served up (I still mourn the loss of that roast beef to this day).

Eventually, I even abandoned the reception room to sit outside and do a frantic re-write. When the fateful moment arrived, I stood up, took a deep breath and… actually it wasn’t too bad. Now years later, I consider all the things I could have done differently. Ah … the perks of hindsight.

So, this is what I’m doing – imparting my words of wisdom as a professional attendee of weddings. I hope the tips in this blog may help others avoid my pain and in a little way I can live vicariously through each and every one of you (cue maniacal laughter).
