Mission MOH speech: Complete!

8 Sep

On Saturday I finally gave my maid of honor speech at the A’s wedding! I was very nervous about the speech leading up to my moment. I went through several drafts and couldn’t have done it without the proof-reading help of my mom and brother (thank you!).

(that’s me!)

I started out with a story of how the bride and I met, continued on into how friendship has grown, then included thoughts about her now husband. I ended using the first few lines from the poem I Carry Your Heart by e.e. Cummings .

I had a bit of trouble with the microphone, but overall was very happy with how the speech turned out- I got lots of compliments after too! ¬†I didn’t cry but was shaking some- as I predicted. These toast giving tips (here and here) really helped, and the only thing I would say is practice, practice, practice! I only did a few times and once in front of the mirror. If I do it again, practicing will be my mantra. Also- have fun! I had to remind myself why I was giving this speech and it helped me not to be so scared.

PS: It’s been a while(!) and now that the craziness of my summer weddings is nearly over- just one more to go on September 24th- I will be posting more regularly. I have lots to share with you!

    Piece of writing writing is also a fun, if you know afterward you can write otherwise it
    is difficult to write.
