April 08, 2012 | Comments: 0 | Views: 258

Giving a touching, memorable maid in honor heartfelt speech is one of your most important duties as the maid of honor. With these helpful tips, your speech will add to an already spectacular night for the bride and groom and their guests. Just follow these easy bits of advice and your butterflies will disappear!

Tip # 1: The best, most important piece of advice is to start thinking about your speech early. If you have a smartphone, a tablet or notepad you keep with you, jot down (or record) your ideas as they come to you. You'll find that different great ideas will pop into your head at odd times and you want to get them down for future reference. By the time you actually start formally writing your speech, you'll have plenty of ideas to go off of.

Tip # 2: Try to include some touching stories about your good or special times with the bride. Things that only you share that help show what a fun, kind, compassionate, or interesting person she is. Let the audience in on these traits that they may not have known about. They'll appreciate your insight, something only you have to give but that they can take home with them. It could be the first time you met, an interesting experience you both shared together, or something you observed that really impacted you.

Tip # 3: Some people get a wee bit nervous when anticipating speaking in front of a crowd. Heres how to avoid that feeling ( or at least really really minimize it):

1. Bring along a cheat sheet. A note card that has the outline of your speech. Not necessarily the speech word for word ( although you can if you want to) because by not reading it word for word it will come across more natural and from the heart.

2. Practice before hand. Practice on someone close or just with yourself but practice!

3. Visualize yourself being calm, cool, and collected while standing in front of the wedding guests.

4. Keep it short. The best speeches are only two minutes long! It will have the most impact and also be over before you know it.

The main point to remember is to make this speech about something that you can relate to and stimulates your emotions. Whether its humorous or sentimental, funny or intimate just follow this guide and you will be adding a special moment and making this an unforgettable evening for the bride and groom and all their guests.
