OUTLINE THE WEDDING SPEECH
and decide your tone. Although some
people can write and speak eloquently off the top of their heads, most of us
cannot. Therefore, use outlines and notes. It will make things much easier for your wedding speech.
Outlines for a wedding speech help for many reasons:
It will help you
will help give organization to your wedding speech.
It makes the writing
An outline will help you break down the writing into
smaller pieces, so you don’t forget important details.
Your outline can be whatever length you desire.
Actually, the more details you include, the easier it will be to write your
wedding speech. Part of the detail is deciding what tone or overall theme you
want the wedding speech to embody. It can be happy, sad, serious, or humorous. You are
the best judge of what tone is suitable for the occasion.
You may outline by using whatever method you feel
most comfortable with. There are traditional vertical outlines, using letters
and roman numerals. You can also outline by free association. I find this to
be the most effective.
Free association is a term used in psychology,
where patients are asked to openly and freely discuss their inner thoughts as
they “pop” into their heads, no matter how unrelated the thoughts might seem.
This stimulates creative thinking because you are free to jump from one idea to
the next, no matter how unrelated the thoughts may seem. It’s very simple to
Write the person’s name at the top of the paper. As
thoughts come to mind, any thoughts, write down a word or phrase that quickly
summarizes that thought. For example, “charitable contributions.” As more
thoughts come to mind, write them down. As ideas become more detailed, expand
on the thoughts you have already written down. Just keep writing down
everything that comes to mind.
After you have
jotted down many ideas, go back over your outline and number the main points in
the order they should be addressed. It gives structure for your writing. It
can be changed later. It is even OK to eliminate entire topics.
