Take a deep breath, get out your pencil and paper, and dig right in to the task of honoring the bride and groom on their special day. By following these easy steps, you may surprise yourself at how skilled a writer you actually are.

1. Capture Your Ideas
As the ideas of what you want to communicate and the memories you want to revisit start to swirl around in your brain, let that blank piece of paper start to record the ideas as they come into your head. This is not a time to worry about details, but just enjoy the free associations that come to mind.

2. Prioritize Your Thoughts
With this smattering of words, choose which of the ideas you would want to actually include in your speech. Don’t throw away any ideas yet as they may make wonderful anecdotal comments. If you can remember any speeches you’ve heard, think about what has made them so good that you can actually remember them now.

3. Rewrite Those Gems
Now that there is some form to your ideas, it will probably be easier to edit these into a more formal hardcopy. Check the sequence for time reference, appropriateness, strength. It will probably be easy for you to decide which items to keep and which to discard. The best writing is often the shortest.

4. Try It Out
Now that your speech has been written, actually stand up and deliver it to an imaginary audience. Perhaps in speaking it out loud you will recognize some of the strengths and weaknesses of your written words. Repetition is probably your best friend as your confidence with the material will increase as it becomes more familiar.

5. Oh Mr. DeMille …
Of course the best preparation is to practice delivering your speech in front of others. By getting even just one friend to sit, listen, and watch you, your friend can help you hone your speech. Their comments could be the factors that make or break your speech.
If you have used these steps to create your wedding day speech, you will most likely be ready to set aside your worries and simply enjoy the memorable part you will play in this special day of your friends or relatives.
