Making a Wedding Speech can be a very stressful event for those involved. To stand up and make a speech in front of any group can be nerve racking but when you consider that those about to make a Wedding Speech are about to stand up before friends and family then it can bring on a whole new set of nerves!!
Sometimes the person making the Wedding Speech will inject a few good one liners to add an element of fun and if delivered well this can be very effective. One important point that goes with humor in a Wedding Speech is to practise your delivery, there is no point in being flustered and saying the punchline first!!
Many Wedding Speeches made by the groom will mention his new mother-in-law and he may extend his thanks for a job well done in bringing up her daughter. One groom took this a step further and thanked his father-in-law for giving him two mother-in-laws! Generally the grroms speech will be made on behalf of himself and his new wife and if he knows what is good for him he will praise her to the hilt!
Next in the grooms speech he should thank the bridesmaids for performing their duties and it then falls to the groomsman to reply on behalf of the bridesmaid in his speech. It makes sense for the the groom and his groomsman to get together to discuss this part of their speeches before hand.
If you are on the look out for free wedding speech ideas then look no further. Here are a few that I have discovered,

The brain is a wonderful thing. It never stops functioning from the time you're born until the moment you stand up to make a speech.- Herbert V Prochnow and Herbert V Prochnow Jnr
The trouble with being the best man at a wedding is that you never get the chance to prove it.
Here's to our wives and lovers. May they never meet.
The most effective way to remember your wedding anniversary is to forget it once.

These are just a few of the examples that are available on the internet. Really researching your Wedding Speech can help you quiten your nerves because you will then be comfortable with what you are going to say.
So you have done your research, you have prepared a fantastic free wedding speech and you have practised in front of the mirror, you are ready to go! Try not to over do the dutch courage and have a great Wedding and good luck with the speech!
