That’s right! Stand up tall and proud. Be proud of the marriage you are supporting as best man or maid of honor, father of the bride or father of the groom, whomever you may be! If you need to, take of your jacket so that you can use your arms to gestures easily. Or, for the ladies, put on an extra jacket if you’re outside, so you won’t shiver from cold the entire speech! Get comfortable to deliver a confidence speech. Help your audience to enjoy your speech by relaxing yourself so they, too, can relax.
Jean-Luc and Haley got married at Noriega House in Bakersfield, California. It was an outdoor wedding and outdoor reception in June and each of the toasters did an excellent job giving a confident speech that was both a blessing and an encouragement to the newlywed couple. Congrats to the newlyweds…who just passed their two year anniversary…still newlyweds, right? We say so… 😉
