This week’s subject I’m exploring the all-important Wedding Speeches! And, singing and dancing lessons. I did thing a little different this week and reached out to my network. And, got some wonderful articles to share with you. I also step of my comfort zone and did my very first podcast with Executive Speaking Coach Eamonn O’Brien.
Sing a song
But first, surprise your bride or groom with a song? Is this something that maybe you have thought of briefly? Thinking ahh no…I don’t have the confidence to sing in public. Well, the beautiful Aideen talks about how to pick the perfect song for you to sing.
Now, onto creating the perfect first dance with tips from Dance Divas in Galway
The Wedding Speech!
Now, onto the dreaded wedding speech. Before I share my very first podcast with you. Here are some fabulous simple tips and tricks to deliver the perfect wedding speech from Maureen of Soft Skills Success
So, here it is…my very first podcast. Excuse the quality of sound. I wasn’t really ready to do this. It was very much spur of the moment.
Below I outline of 3 tips that Eamonn gave me during our interview.
It’s really about sharing memories. It is about a big day out for the bride and groom. It’s about really you reflecting well on the people that you love. You are the of ministers of joy!
Tell stories. For example, why are the bride and groom so special to you? Sharing stories is perfect. Think about why the couple are special to you or what you see in them and why they are a marvellous couple together this is a great time to share that idea.
Keep it short. Sometimes people stand up. And, all of a sudden to think to themselves. Well seeing that I am here. I’ll stay here for a while. Please don’t! If you are the best man and you’re up for more than five minutes. Stop it… imagine there is a giant hook pulling you to hack off the microphone. It’ll make for a nicer occasion. I promise people will love the speech
Hope you enjoyed this week’s topic. I know I did. If you have an article or a real wedding you would like to share with us
