Hot tips for those making speeches
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.
