Cleveland, OH (PRWEB) May 17, 2013
Laugh Staff co-founder, Josh Womack, went on the WKYC Channel 3 (an NBC affiliate) 'Live on Lakeside' show to give tips and tricks on how to give an amazing best man speech.
Womack stressed that there are three things to know when giving a speech. First, know your audience. “You might have some frat brothers there, but you are not at a frat party. So don’t drop F-bombs, don’t act like you’re at a kegger. You’re going to have 20-year-olds. You’re going to have 70-year-olds. So know your audience.”
Another tip Womack discussed was not only knowing your audience, but including them in the speech. The family has most likely been involved in the planning process, and it is their daughter or son getting married. “One way to get an emotional response in a best man speech is to include the family, but also kind of poke fun at them. For example you could say, ‘We’re looking forward to Uncle Danny on the dance floor, but he’ll probably dislocate his shoulder and it will be during a slow dance’ or something like that.”
Finally, Womack advised to plan ahead: “If you’re a best man or maid of honor, you were probably asked months ahead of time. So much planning goes into a wedding like the Save The Dates, the DJ, the flowers, the invitations. It’s your responsibility as the best man or maid of honor to put some thought into the speech and rehearse it. It’s a privilege to have that honor, so why not put some effort into it?”
