What should you never do in your speech content?
1. Never copy speeches as such
Copying speeches or templates as such could make your speech made out or faked. Changing the name in the template and using it is quite easy, but not worth it. The Big Day of your son might be once in a lifetime. It is not a bad idea to try to write something of your own. Collect and cherish back from your happy thoughts with him.
2. Control the ‘Self – Control’
There is a saying that Self-control is the finest tool anybody could employ in his or her speech. It is a mandatory rule that you make a note of your self-control at any given point of time, during your speech. The logic of self-control is nothing but learning to control your emotions during the talk. Men do not show emotions very often, but that does not mean they do not have any. Men can be very sensitive at their heart. Controlling the sensitivity and the flow of emotions is very crucial.
For example, bursting into tears could leave everyone horrified. Similarly, laughing out in a turbulent way at your own joke from your own father of groom speech could be worse either.
3. Watch the tone
Have a constant watch on the tone of your voice. Giving proper ups and down, speaking louder when required and lower when intended. The story you narrate should have a clause of tone check too. The questions you put forth to yourself or the audience. Every sentence of your script must go through and be practiced for the perfect tone delivery. Implementing this rule not only will make your speech more enjoyable, but also leave a positive and a happy mood.
4. Value the gesture and Eye contact
Body language is half of your expression. Covering the face with the script papers would be the last thing any audience will want to see. Break through the fear and one of the proved tricks to do it is to see the audience right in the eye. It will also help you concentrate on what you are talking and have a control over them. The moment you start seeing only and only your script papers and read aloud from it like a mug and vomit session, the guest will turn back to one another to discuss on how the bride’s wedding dress is looking or some may continue with their food plates. Do not let that happen! Make them value your speech. Make them wait for the next thing to come from your mouth. Create the eagerness through sweet gesture and steady eye contact.
5. No drama
Everyone loves to put some emotions and touchy stories in their script. The idea behind is to leave the audience moved with happy moist eyes. However, do not add too much of emotion, as it sometimes looks dramatic. You can add some short genuine story but not those who will annoy the listeners or they are least bothered about.
For example, what your son did in the campfire when he was six is of no importance to anyone sitting there except you may be. So try to add incidents, which will be attractive and interest everyone.
6. True wisdom only
While offering advice and words of wisdom to the new couple ensure that you say only meaningful words. If you have no idea on wisdom words, quote a nice one-liner or an elderly advice you got during your marriage or even better a happy experience you lived from your married life.
7. Handling jokes
Handling the jokes part could be hard. It is completely up to you how good of a joke teller you are. Can you make it sound funny or not? Many people include jokes in their speeches and prove successful in utilizing the idea to the fullest, while few fail. The failure might become real tragedy. It can change the face of your whole speech. So use jokes only and only if you are good at them.
8. Who is the hero?
Do remember that it is your son’s big day and it is about him. Some fathers tend to re-polish their character and offering they made as a father, such as the great things he taught to his son and how successful his son is today because of his teachings. That could be a very bad. You might embarrass you son as well. Do not do that.
9. Ex’s and socially inappropriate content
The head says it all. Forget the Ex’s completely. In addition, avoid talking or making socially inappropriate content and jokes that may create frowning faces around.
10. Length is the Strength
Finally yet importantly, ensure that the length of your script is very concise. Be short, sweet, and up to the point. Lengthy talk may bore the audience and make them loose interest in listening. So remember – the shorter, the better.
