You may dread the thought of having someone listen to your speech before it is ready, but this can be a big help. Whether it is one of the ushers, the bridesmaids or simply your own partner… get them to time you as well as tell you any parts that they really don’t think work!
Ultimately, you really just need to relax. Nerves are natural, but if they get in the way of you enjoying the moment then this is a real shame. No matter if you make a mistake or start blubbing, no-one will really mind, after all, chances are, by the time your speech comes around, they will have had quite a few glasses of wine, which will make everything seem all the funnier!
