This review is from: Making the Father of the Bride's Speech: Etiquette, Jokes, Sample Speeches, One-liners (Paperback)
I hate speaking in public but needed to make a speech at my daughter's wedding. It had to be the best I could do.
This little book helped me achieve that. It is as short as the speech it recommended I should make. Having read it in a couple of hours I honed in on the elements of a 5-minute address that I felt would suit my style. That left out the hundreds of corny jokes it suggested and I concentrated instead on the excellent dateline and quotation hooks to hold my words together.
Having then written down my 700 words and broken them into learnable chunks as suggested, I practiced and practiced until I was word perfect enough to allow myself to adlib just a tiny bit.
After the event I was congratulated by more people than I could have imagined.
If you need to make a wedding speech that goes down a treat then this small tome is well worth the few quid it costs to buy.
