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.

Short sentences are easier to say than
long sentences. But how long is too long
for a sentence?
To determine maximum sentence length, use
the "breath test." Without taking in a gulp
of air, and just with the amount of air
you ordinarily have in your lungs, read the
sentence aloud at a normal conversational
speed and volume.
If you run out of breath before you get
to the end, the sentence is too long.
Solution: Break it into two sentences at
the point where a new idea is introduced.
