It’s not too late… run!
Oops, but seriously, there’s thousands of guys out there at the moment absolutely petrified about one thing concerning their wedding:
- It’s not the organising (surely she’s got that covered?)
- It’s not the ceremony (just a matter of standing there and answering a few questions
- It’s not even the risk of standing on their future wife’s dress (yay, I have a mate who did that:)
Nope, it’s the bloody speech. And it has a habit of creeping up on you… all good, there’s months before the big day… no worries… it’ll come naturally… oh bollo#@s!
The big day arrives.
You’ve been busy, too much to sort out, drinks with the boys, blah blah blah and you’re left with a shocking speech that even tumbleweed wouldn’t blow past. So what am I saying? For starters you could take a look through this blog to get all the tips you need on writing a funny speech. Yes, it’s based on the best man, but a lot of the same points apply. And then you could put down some ideas, get in the necessary thank you’s, share the love, and make your wife very proud (that’ll stand you in good stead). Sorted.
If you’re a friend of the groom, you could show him this post and give him half a chance of putting together a decent speech. He might pick out some good stuff that’ll actually help him. You see, what he’s about to do is very important and his wife is going to be relying on him to make it special. Getting up drunk and slurring through some old drivel while saying “I loves her I do” won’t be appreciated like a well prepared speech or poem. Believe me, she will love a poem!
And later on, when he’s just thrown up on the back of her dress and collapsed on the dance floor, he will always be able to say “But I wrote you a poem”, and she’ll just smile and forgive him immediately. Marital bliss huh?
