Hot tips for those mak­ing speeches

Kapi-Mana News - - YOUR WEDDING -

Got a wed­ding speech to give and need a lit­tle guid­ance?

Here’s three big dos and three big don’ts when it comes time to make a toast. Do: Write your speech on in­dex cards and num­ber them. Small cards are less dis­tract­ing than pa­per.

Prac­tice. Prepa­ra­tion is ev­ery­thing when it comes to less­en­ing nerves and im­prov­ing per­for­mance.

Be sin­cere and speak slowly and clearly. Don’t: Drink too much al­co­hol. Talk too long. Take your jokes to the gut­ter. Avoid sto­ries about ex-part­ners and con­sider whether grand­par­ents or chil­dren are present.
