The speeches are very common at a wedding and in fact they are those that show the grooms your wishes – all the fortune and happiness in the world in their new life. But the speeches are also very hard to deliver for those who are not used to talk at weddings or those who have never before delivered a speech and need or want to do it now.
But the things can be done easily and the fear of speaking in public and not having a good speech can be easily surpassed if you follow just a few tips. First of all, practice. Take some time before the wedding and practice your speech. Write ideas about what you want to say. Think about your relationship with the grooms, their love story and include those in the speech. End your speech in a positive manner and before the wedding say it a few times at home.
Now that your speech for the grooms is ready, you need to think about the proper moment to deliver it. There is an entire wedding speech etiquette for this and if you are a guest then you have to be very patient until your turn comes.
So, when can wedding guests give a speech? No matter the type of the wedding and who will conduct the speeches at the wedding, the wedding guest will say their speech towards the end of the wedding speech session. The wedding speeches are usually held after the meal or at afternoon and less formal wedding receptions, after the first dance.
The one who usually begins the speech session at the wedding is the best man, followed by the fathers, the groom, the bride, family friends and relatives, the maid of honor and then any other person who would like to congratulate the married couple.
If you still do not think you will know when exactly to say your wedding speech as a guest, then probably the best thing for you to do is to ask at the wedding whether there is a master of ceremonies who will conduct the speeches. If there is not one, speak to the best man and tell him you want to say a few words. He will then tell you where the right time for you to speak is.11
