Tip 1:

Be CONFIDENT that you will have SUCCESS !

If you want to have success in any action, the first necessary requirement that you must accomplish is to be self-confident. Self-confidence is the secret ingredient of any great accomplishment in the human history, and this is true for groom wedding speeches, too. So, first of all, if you want to have the perfect speech, you must:  Be CONFIDENT and trust in yourself that you are able to and will write, prepare and deliver a good speech and that all the people present at the wedding will enjoy it and will applaud you at the end.  Be SURE that YOU WILL HAVE SUCCESS!  Keep your mind away from failure!  Focus only on success!  Think POSITIVE! Instead of being negative or too emotive, be positive and believe that everything will be fine.  BELIEVE that YOU are THE BEST! Don’t underestimate your own capacities and do not think that only others are capable of preparing, composing and delivering a perfect speech. You can do that, too - if you follow the next tips. In order to achieve a strong confidence in yourself, you must

Tip 2: PLAN and PREPARE ahead ! The planning and the preparation are the most important things you must do, if you want to have the best groom wedding speech. Here’s the first thing you should do:

Addapt and modify your plan whenever is necessary (e.g. as soon as you find new helpful things). While the detailed planning is absolutely indispensable for the success of any action – especially for the creation and presentation of the speech at probably the most important event in your life (your wedding) –, it is useless if you don’t sustain it with the proper PREPARATION. To make sure that you will be able to prepare the speech and it’s presentation very well, you must:

Tip 3: SHORT, SIMPLE and SINCERE ! While you are thinking to all the things that you would like to include in your groom wedding speech and while you are composing it, you must remember that

Your guests came to the wedding to have FUN, not to listen an academical oration! This is the first and most important reason you should keep your speech SHORT. Otherwise, you risk to bore your guests and make them dislike completely your speech. So, if you want to make a good impression, don’t forget that

10 TIPS for the BEST Groom Wedding Speech 2012

Your speech should last maximum 5 minutes (3 minutes is perfect)! Another reason why you must have a short speech is that there may be other guests who would like to speak. Don’t make them wait too long!

Respect their time! The second most important quality of a groom speech is that it should be SIMPLE. When creating the speech, use your own words to express your thoughts and feelings!

Don’t use useless, boring and annoying flourishes! Don’t force yourself to include a brilliant vocabulary and sophisticated expressions, because, if you do that, you will end up having a cold and even strange speech, that will not impress anybody; moreover, your audience will notice that you wanted very much to amaze and the huge difference between your intention and the result will be ridiculous. So,

Use the beauty of simplicity to create the perfect speech! Try to express yourself clearly, making sure that your message reaches its recipient. Don’t use double-meaning words! Instead,

Be clear, brief and to the point! Another thing you should keep in mind while writing the speech is that it must be SINCERE. Express your true feelings. Speak from your heart – this is what really impresses others (especially your bride).

DON’T SAY what others expect you to say IF you DON’T BELIEVE it! Say only what you really feel, not what others would like to hear from you! If you don’t do that, your audience will figure out that you are lying and the value of your speech will decrease significantly.

Besides being short, simple and sincere, your groom wedding speech should also ...

10 TIPS for the BEST Groom Wedding Speech 2012 Tip 4: FOLLOW the STANDARD STRUCTURE The groom wedding speech should follow the standard format (structure) of any composition, which means that your speech should contain the 3 main parts: 1. the INTRODUCTION 2. the BODY 3. the CONCLUSION. Here’s what you should do in the INTRODUCTION:  if someone else has spoken before you, thank to your previous speaker or the person who presented you – just say “Thank you!” -, then  make a short pause, while waiting the guests to become quiet (to stop applauding the previous speaker and you), then  the best thing to do next is to recite an inspirational quote or a poem (about love, marriage, etc.) or even a joke, to grab the attention of your audience; after that,  if you are the first to give a speech, welcome the guests and thank them for coming to your wedding, for their gifts, etc. It’s a good idea to offer some gifts to the most important persons at the wedding, while thanking to them. At the end of your introduction, don’t forget to  give special thanks to: those who helped you organize the wedding, the best man, the maid of honor, the family of your bride, yours, and to whoever you want; make sure that, for every person or group of persons, you mention the reason for which you are grateful to them. In the BODY, you can take into account the following suggestions:  say what marriage means to you,  what are your hopes for the marriage,  from whom and what you have learned about the married life (e.g. from your parents, uncles, friends, etc.)  how you and your bride met,  what were the first impressions,

10 TIPS for the BEST Groom Wedding Speech 2012  tell your bride how much you appreciate her and how lucky you are that you met her, etc. In the CONCLUSION, you can:  finish your speech with a toast to who you want: your bride, all the guests, your parents, etc., or  end it with a famous quote, poem or a good joke. Here are some other very useful tips to keep in mind while creating your speech:  The speech should not take more than 5 minutes!  The purpose of the groom wedding speech is to thank everyone who helped you to prepare the wedding ceremony and especially your bride, your family and hers.  Your speech should have a main theme (be centered around a main theme), like: how important marriage is, how special your bride is, how lucky you are that you met her, etc.  These must be the KEYWORDS of any groom wedding speech - in decreasing order of importance (in the speech): bride, family, love, loyalty, devotion, commitment.  Be sure, while preparing and delivering your speech, that the attention stays on the bride! So you must not only include her in your speech, but also the whole speech should be focused on your bride.  You must NOT mention PAST RELATIONSHIPS! Telling about your exgirlfriends would hurt your bride’s and her family’s feelings and can even destroy your whole speech!

If you use all the tips I revealed to you by now, there are still some steps you need to make in order to have a perfect groom wedding speech. One of this steps is to ...

Tip 5: ADD A TOUCH OF HUMOR ! 9

www.groomwedding-speech.net ©2010-2012


10 TIPS for the BEST Groom Wedding Speech 2012 In their attempt to create the perfect speech, many grooms end up having a cold speech, without personality. So, if you want to have an interesting and memorable speech, include a touch of humor in your speech!

Don't be too formal ! In order to make a good impression on your bride, family and guests, your speech should be a balanced mixture of emotion and good humor! Here is what you accomplish if you add a little humor to your speech (the advantages of using good jokes):  You grab immediately the attention of your audience and make them listen your speech very carefully, instead of hardly waiting it to finish.  You entertain your audience, creating a warm and friendly atmosphere!  You create yourself an interesting image – the one of a funny, positive and happy man!  You relax yourself and the whole atmosphere!  You get rid of the emotions inherent in any speech.  Good jokes keep you (and your speech) from being boring!  A little good humor will make your speech memorable, so everyone present at your wedding will remember your speech and will talk about it with a lot of pleasure. Probably you have noticed that I used the expressions “good jokes” and “good humor” several times by now. Let me explain you what I understand by these phrases:  The jokes you use in your speech must be chosen with a lot of care, because, when you are joking, you must

Be careful not to hurt anyone’s feelings – especially your bride’s !  You must not exaggerate and create a totally funny speech! (I’m sure you don’t want to look like a buffoon.) So, don’t include too many jokes!

Don't turn yourself into a clown!

10 TIPS for the BEST Groom Wedding Speech 2012  In order to achieve that, remember:

Don’t drink alcohol until after your speech!  If you want to make sure that you will not exaggerate with the jokes, use the following test - ASK yourself:

Are these jokes consistent with my ideal image? You may wonder now where to include the funny lines in your speech. Well, you should do that: 

 

in the body, especially: o when you say what you have learned about the married life, o what are your hopes for the marriage, o how your life changed after you met your bride, etc. in the introduction, immediately after making the pause (for waiting the guests to calm); in the conclusion.

But even if you follow the previous tips, there may be some shortcomings that keep your speech from being the best. In order to fix that, you must ...

Tip 6: COORDINATE the SPEECHES ! Another important thing you must pay attention to while composing your speech is the coordination of your speech with the other ones. You shouldn’t say the same things (stories, quotes, jokes, etc.) with your previous speakers. In order to do that,

Try to find out what they want to include in their speeches! The most important speech you must coordinate with is your bride’s (if she will have one). That’s why, first of all, you must

Find out if your bride wants to have her own speech. If she doesn't, then you should speak for both of you. But if she does, make sure that the contents of your speeches are different.

10 TIPS for the BEST Groom Wedding Speech 2012 Otherwise, you risk to bore the guests. But if there is a story that both of you want to include in your speeches,

Tell it from different points of view. Once you’ve decided together what each tells, the next thing you must do is to

Find out what persons will give speeches before you at the wedding. According to the tradition, the groom’s speech must follow those of the parents. Talk to them and find out what they will include in their speeches.

While all the 6 tips presented by now help you COMPOSE (CREATE) the best groom wedding speech, the next 4 secrets will enable you to DELIVER the speech in the best possible way, making you look like a professional public speaker. But, before detailing the next 4 tips, let me explain you briefly ...

The IMPORTANCE of PRESENTATION Unfortunately, most grooms don’t know that

The secret behind the perfect speech is a successful presentation! When you are giving a speech (no matter what kind of speech, this is valid even for an academical oration), it is important not only the content of your speech (in this case, the content of your groom wedding speech), but also the way you present that content. Actually, The presentation of any speech is many times even more important than the content. That is because, no matter how interesting the content of your speech is, if you don’t know how to tell it, you will not make a good impression and the value of your speech will decrease significantly (even if it contains brilliant ideas). On the other hand, if your speech does not contain extraordinary ideas, but you tell them as if they were very smart, you will look like an interesting and important person, and the audience will remember your speech with pleasure.

10 TIPS for the BEST Groom Wedding Speech 2012 ATTENTION: That doesn’t mean you should neglect the content, but to

Pay attention equally both to the content and the presentation! The presentation is so valuable because, nowadays, the attitude is more important than the real value of any person. Or, to say it in other words, most of the people "judge the books by their covers". This is why you must pay attention equally both to the content and the presentation, because the presentation is actually the "cover" of your speech.

Hoping that I made you understand why the presentation of the speech is so important, let’s begin with the first tip for a successful presentation:

Tip 7: INTERACT with your AUDIENCE ! The interesting thing that all the successful public speakers have in common is that they interact with their audience. They don’t speak as if they were at school. Instead, they

Involve the audience in their speech! Which is something your should do too, if you want to have a perfect groom wedding speech. Here’s how you can do that (it’s not very difficult, don’t worry):  Look at each guest in the eyes, not in only one direction!  Speak as if you were conversing with an old friend, not like reciting a poem at school!  Address directly to your audience as often as you can! Use the pronoun “you” many times.  Ask your guests questions during the speech! Tag questions are very suitable for this. Or just say things like: “you know very well that ..”, “you all know that ...”, “don’t you think?”, “you can imagine”, etc. You can include these expressions when you say what you have learned about the married life (from your father, uncles, friends, etc.), or when you use jokes (be careful not to offend anyone !!!). REMEMBER:

10 TIPS for the BEST Groom Wedding Speech 2012 The most important person you must interact with during the speech is your BRIDE!

DON’T talk AS IF your BRIDE would NOT BE THERE ! Here are the best 3 ways of interacting with your bride during the speech:  When you speak about things that concern both of you (e.g. when you met her, what you appreciate the most at her, etc.), you should turn to her, look her into the eyes and address her directly.  Hold her hand at the time of maximum intensity of your speech (e.g. when you tell her how much you love her or that you want to spend the rest of your life with her).  If your bride doesn’t want to have her own speech, then you should speak for both of you. In this case, it’s advisable to include in your speech, as often as possible, “my wife and I” and “we”.

By having your audience involved in your speech (through interaction), you achieve 5 things - which are the great advantages of the interaction:  keep the audience focused on your speech,  make your speech informal - which is a desirable quality of any successful groom wedding speech,  make the guests feel important (like they are a part of your family) and, consequently,  your speech will be highly appreciated and  you will create the image of a special man. The most important advantage of interacting with your audience is the fact that, this way, you will create the image of a confident, positive and happy man.

But, besides involving your guests in your speech, there are 2 other methods that help you CREATE A PERFECT IMAGE of yourself. The first one of these is ...
