Topic: Need help writing a speech about myself
June 24, 2019 / By Austyn Question:
preferably something not too long. We've been best friends for about 6 years now and I've known the bride since '09 and their names are Logan and Tiffany. I'm not good at public speaking or writing and the wedding is saturday. I didn't even know the wedding date until yesterday when they told me. I really don't want to ruin my friends wedding and I really need help, can anyone help me write a small simple speech?

My b/f was in the same situation and used this website - good luck!
Or pick a poem - corny but safe...
1 cup consideration
1 cup courtesy
2 cupfuls flattery carefully concealed
1 gallon faith and trust in each other
2 cupfuls praise
1 small pinch of in-laws
1 reasonable budget, a generous dash of cooperation
3 teaspoon pure extract of "I'm sorry"
1 cup contentment
1 cup each confidence and encouragement
1 large or several small hobbies
1 cup blindness to the other's faults
Flavor with frequent portions of recreation and a dash of happy memories. Stir well and remove any specks of jealousy, temper or criticism. Sweeten well with generous portions of love and keep warm with a steady flame of devotion. Never serve with cold shoulder.

Originally Answered: What is the difference between writing a speech and an essay?
Speeches use some different techniques, such as repetition and the use of signposts.
For example, in a scholarly essay, you don't want to repeat yourself because the reader can just read the essay again. In college you learn to never repeat yourself (except under special circumstances). Even in your conclusion you don't want to just repeat what you've already said. The conclusion is not a summary of your paper.
However, in a speech the rules flip-flop. In a speech you do want to do these things because you need to get your point across to the audience. The audience will most likely not attentively hear every word you say, so you need to remind them throughout your essay what you've told them and what you will tell them. These are called signposts. In your conclusion of a speech you DO want to summarize what you've said.
So to put it most simply, in a speech you use more repetition, along with techniques to keep the audience's attention. In scholarly essays, you don't want to repeat yourself.
Also, depending on the type of speech, most speeches are not written out word for word because they are not supposed to be memorized. You're just supposed to know the topics of your essay, supporting arguments, and sub-sections, but not an actual word for word written out speech.
However this depends on what your teacher wants.
Well i think that's rather rude only giving you a few days but:
1. start by introducing yourself and how you know the groom
2. say "we've had a lot of good times together, for instance..." and give a short example of a funny time you've had together. Don't embarass the groom too much but a few laughs are good.
3. without being too OTT say "I've known [bride] for a couple of years" and explain how you think they're a match made in heaven
4. Conclude your speech with "good luck to [groom] and [bride], may your lives together be long and happy!"

Controlling guys like that best worsen, and now you've the child to suppose of too. He hasnt hit you but, but when he's irritated adequate to wreck mirrors and so forth evenutally he'll begin hitting you as good. This is the sample of such guys. I endorse you instantly get in contact with any one who might aid you're making plans to break out from him. Don't allow him realize you plans and whilst they're in situation, simply move. If you inform him he'll try to avoid you, maybe violently. I wish you've a mom to visit, or a depended on buddy. You are very younger and will begin once more. I additionally acquired married for the primary time at 19, despite the fact that he wasnt like your husband. You aren't on my own, many ladies are to your quandary.

I'd keep it short and sweet ... something along the lines of you've been best friends for 6 years, you knew when he met this girl he was in love because of all the silly things he did - maybe he changed his clothes a dozen times before each date or started listening to cheesy songs....something funny to make the guests chuckle, then you're so thrilled to see them so happy and in love...wrap it up with a "all the best" "best wishes" heres to true love" heres to happiness" while you raise your glass and be done. I'm not saying this to be mean, but no one will remember what you say besides the bride and groom...and even they might not. Everyone will listen to you, but with the fact that they are starving in the back of their minds. Make them "awwww", laugh, and get them to dinner quicker and they'll adore you.

Just think of how you feel about your friend and what you think of he and his wife to be. Make a joke of him giving you short notice by saying something like you could have prepared better if you had more time to study instead of cramming, something corny. Wedding attendees love corny. Just speak from the heart, try to recall funny stories, tell a few, and say congratulations. Don't put more pressure on yourself than is necessary. Keep it light.

tell her what's been going on (in detail) in the last long time. I always set out to write just the inside of a card and usually end up with 1 or 2 notebook pages folded up inside. You'll get on a roll.
