Delivering a speech of any kind can be a daunting task for most people, especially when it’s an important occasion like your best friend’s wedding.
If you’ve been chosen as your friend’s or relative’s best man, it’s because they see you as a supportive and important person in their life and want you standing by their side on such an important day.
When drafting up your breast man speech, here are a few things to keep in mind.
The Importance Of Practice
You know that they say practice makes perfect! Or at least closer to it. While it may seem like an obvious task, practicing your speech is a crucial part of a good delivery on the day of the wedding.
Simply writing out the speech isn’t enough because, chances are, when you read it out loud, you’re going to run into some parts that don’t flow as easily as they did in your head.
Plus, while memorization isn’t totally necessary, you want the speech to feel properly rehearsed and not just put together at the last minute.
Bring Notes With You
Again, memorization isn’t the goal here, and even if you feel like you have it all up in your brain, it’s still a good idea to bring your speech or at least a few notecards up with you when it’s time to deliver.
