What better way is there to enjoy eating, drinking and getting merrier by the minute? Other than to attend one of the most traditional of occasions, the wedding reception.
There is no doubt that for the majority of people, the reception itself is a chance to relax and revel in the celebrations. Generally much appreciated, after the formalities of the wedding arrangements having hopefully gone to plan. Imagine the strain of waiting for the delivery of the flowers and buttonholes. Praying the cars arrive on time and the Bride and Groom decide to show.
Unless of course, you happen to be one of the male guest speakers of the day, namely the Bride’s Father, Best Man and not forgetting the Groom himself. Quaking in their shiniest shoes, at the prospect of making probably one of the most frightening speeches they will ever have to make. Their time has come to take center stage, dive in and entertain the wedding party with a bang. Or in the worst-case scenario, belly flop with little more than a pop.
After spending hours writing and agonizing over what to say, or how to deliver their speech on the big day. Along comes deliberation over the hardest hurdle of all, feeling confident it is humorous enough. The plain truth is in the majority of cases; guest speakers would gladly pay somebody to lighten this onus albeit a privileged one. Given the chance, most would welcome the prospect of having the speech written for them.
It is definitely an honor to stand up in front of family and guests and deliver a heartfelt and personal speech in respect of the Bride and Groom. Nevertheless, it can ultimately result in a most embarrassing situation for the speaker, as well as the guests. In particular, if the speech itself does not have the desired effect or impact intended.
Becoming a Wedding Speech Writer would certainly provide a very valuable and much sought after service, not to mention saving a few red faces along the way.
With that final thought in mind, may the matrimonial celebrations long continue and CHEERS to every BLESSED one of them.
