 7 ways for wedding speeches for groom

 

・Recognize taboo words


These days, it is less severe than before, but there are still some taboo words for wedding speeches. You should recognize words considered to be unlucky.

The taboo words for wedding are words related to parting such as part, end, cut, away something like that, and words remind you of divorce like leave, go home, cut, and words remind you of bad luck such as dead, wither, rapture, spread, or last. For example “cut a cake“. It includes a taboo word so you should change the expression like “put the knife in to a cake or knife was put into a cake.

 

・Learn redundant phrases


You should be careful about redundant phrases as well as taboo words. Redundant phrases mean use words which have the same meaning and you do not need to use it in a phrase. Some of these words can remind of remarriage or sad events, so you had better not use them at the wedding reception.

For example, once again, often, over and over, one after another, frequently, everyone, and one after the other are redundant words. They are used many times in casual conversation so you should be careful.

 

・Learn basic wedding welcome speech architecture and trend


Since welcome speeches express what kind of wedding reception will be held, you should write a speech that expresses couple’s happy feeling and give good impression on visitors. It is said that speeches from three minutes to five minutes is the best.

Firstly words of appreciation, secondly report of your wedding, thirdly wedding reception’s concepts, lastly your own episodes. You should include them in your speech. Generally only a groom makes a welcome speech holding a microphone, but saying words by a bride makes the visitors feel good. So you can include it.

 

・Convey your gratitude by unconventional ways


You have only two times to convey your gratitude to visitors at your wedding reception. They are welcome speech which you make in the beginning of the reception and ending speech.

You might think they are enough because you are not used to making a speech in public. However, if you would make a conventional speech like others made, you could not get them impressed and convey happy feelings.

So it is good to have a meeting with your MC in advance and have him support your speech because he would be able to help you with your speech when you would get upset and forget what to say. It is said that the less messages bridal couples deliver the less impression are given to visitors.

 

・Make a speech with notes


Although it is better to make a speech without scripts, you do not have to be hard yourself. You can make a note of some important points of your speech and check it while making a speech. However, you should be careful about your direction of eyes when you check it.

People tend to drop down their eyes many times when they rely too much on their notes.
So you should try to get to guest’s eye level seeing them from right to left after checking the notes.

 

・Check facial expression with mirror.


When it comes to wedding welcome speeches, your facial expression is as important as messages. Especially smile is the key though between guests and you have some distance, so your smile would not be recognized unless you smile firmly.

And you should also be careful about your chin’s position because sticking out your chin could make you look big and tucking your chin could make you look like trying to gain their favor. Check your facial expression with mirror while rehearsing.

 

・Improve your diction


Even if you write a wonderful speech it would be wasting when your guests could not understand what you said. So you should try to make a speech which is easy to listen to.
The point is to care about punctuations. Punctuation means breathing points.

You can make rhythm of speech by clarifying punctuation. And you should read your speech aloud to see if the point is right or not. People tend to get nervous and make a speech speaking fast at wedding reception, so if you feel you breathing quickly, take deep breath and relax before making a speech.

 

How was that?

These days many grooms have not written speeches and used scripts from the internet or others had written. However, you should write your own speech because it can get your guests impressed.

I hope not only grooms but also brides read the articles to consider your wonderful wedding reception. And I wish for your blessed wedding.
