Welcome speech for groom. 7 tips to succeed without stress

 

-1 to 2 minutes is ideal for welcome speech


It is not good to speak long with extreme nervousness. Also, it is tiring for guests to listen to long speech in beginning of the ceremony. There are more speeches waiting for you later. It is the most effective way to tell appreciation to guests in 1 to 2 minutes in the beginning.

 

-Appreciation and happiness, rather than rhetoric


It is important to tell guests appreciation for coming to the ceremony, but you don’t need to say rhetoric. Telling how much you appreciate and how happy you are is the most important thing.

Guests are here to celebrate you and your partner for your marriage. To show your happiness will be the appreciation for guests more than anything.

 

-To make small laughter


It is also effective to add something to make guests smile along with appreciation. By making people laugh, the atmosphere is eased and can relieve your tension. Guests are there to celebrate you, so they have open and welcome mind. They will always laugh.

Besides extraordinary statements, most speeches are welcomed but inappropriate words will spoil the ceremony at once. Only thing you need to tell is appreciation and wish them to have good time. Laughter is not a must. If the speech is made with bride, it will be easier to create some laughter.

 

-Remember the format of speech


Generally, the speech is made up of appreciation to guests, informing of marriage, intention of the ceremony, and ending phrases. If you have this format in your mind, you can finish welcome speech without any problem, even if you forget the script.

Thank you for coming. We got married. Meal is prepared for you. Please enjoy. These are only things you need to tell. Instead of saying every single words correctly, keep in mind to say what you want to tell. It will relieve your nervousness and lead you to hearty speech.

 

-Speak slowly and clearly


You are likely to speak fast when nervous, but the faster you talk the more nervous you feel. By speaking slowly and saying every word clearly, you will feel calm. As you can tell you are calmed down, you can obtain composure.

It is also relieving for guests to see you talk calmly, rather than seeing you talk fast with nervousness. Just pretending to be calm can make you regain calmness. Pay attention to “slowly and clearly”.

 

-Be conscious of gestures along with talking


Slowly and clearly is also applied to gestures. By consciously making your gestures slow, you can feel calm. We are likely to get careless when we are nervous, so to tell yourself to calm down is the best way to relieve tension.

1 to 2 minutes is best for welcome speech. You will understand if you actually time it, that it is longer than you think. If you talk fast, it ends even more quickly. Speaking slowly on purpose makes it to appropriate length.

 

-Practice with bride


Whether you make speech with bride or by yourself, practice it with her. Calm down and look straight to her, and practice for several times. When making the speech for real, look at her before starting.

Image of practicing is connected to bride, and you can speak in similar condition as practicing. Bride will be by your side at the ceremony, so she is the best partner to practice with. You will be relaxed to see beloved bride who will experience both difficulties and happiness together.

 

Could you find any helpful tips?

I can understand your nervousness at the proudest moment of your life. However, you already have things you want to say. The most important thing is to tell your feeling. Even if you hope your guests to enjoy the ceremony, they can’t if you are not enjoying yourself.

Enjoy with guests and share the happiness together. I think it is what the wonderful wedding ceremony is. Please make your ceremony memorable, enjoyable for guests, and share your happiness with everyone.
