Introduction to the Maid of Honor speech

When it comes to giving a maid of honor speech, many people assume all they have to do is get up and be emotional and say some nice things and that will be enough.  This special occasion calls for better preparation than that. After all, think about how much goes into a wedding. The Maid of Honor speech is a very important part of the event so it deserves similar attention to detail.

We’ll prepare you for your speech by teaching you how to truly connect with your audience, especially the bride and her new husband.  She feels so strongly about you that she gave you this special honor and entrusted you with this moment. You’ll reciprocate by choosing the right words and conveying your message clearly. 

To follow is a series of text and video modules that will cover each aspect of giving a great speech. They’re not long but they’re effective and will have you on the right track in no time.

We’ll be talking about things like choosing the right words and ideas for your speech, choosing a tone, connecting with your audience, and practicing until you’re comfortable and you’ve got it down.

By the way, if you’ve got any anxiety about giving a speech, don’t worry - we’ve got you covered. We offer ample information on dealing with public speaking anxiety, and the really good news is by the time you’re fully prepared by taking all the other steps you might not need it anyway.
