Note: If you don't have time before your speech, immediately skip down to Step 3. Otherwise, start at Step 1:
Step 1: Assuming that you have time before your speech, quickly brainstorm several key words for items that you planned to say during your speech.
Step 2: Put these items in order. Don't worry about the rest of your speech.
Step 3: Speak from the heart. Say the items that you remembered in Steps 1 and 2. Share a favorite story about you and the bride/groom before wishing the couple well. Don't be surprised if other parts of the speech come to back into your mind as you begin your speech.
