“Hey, Bob that toast was great!” “I had forgotten about that story, it made me laugh so hard I cried,” “ I loved hearing their love story from your perspective”, “ I didn’t know she knew how to tap dance,” “that was the BEST”. How will the wedding guests receive your speech? How well did you do? How can you improve for the next wedding you are in? Because even if you first speech was a hit we all know copy and paste really isn’t an option for your next speech.
If you have been asked to give a speech at a wedding reception or have recently given one, consider getting helpful feedback. Two heads are better than one and trusted friends and family can give you ideas for the next time. Whether you are the best man, maid of honor, one of the wedding party or perhaps the bride or groom yourself it is always a good idea to get a second opinion. We suggest asking someone to let you know you both how you did well and how you can improve for the next time. Ask family and friends but also feel free to ask your wedding planner, DJ, or cinematographer who have heard many a wedding toast and would be happy to offer a word or two of advice and encouragement.
The guests at Jake and Brittany’s reception had great things to say about the speeches. Watch their highlight video to hear the speeches.
