Among them -- and the worst for many guys -- is giving the best man speech. Because, you know, not only are you expected to speak (usually for about 3-5 minutes), but you may feel the pressure of being personal, funny, and heartfelt all in one talk.
You've seen those best man speeches in the movies. Are you really expected to live up to those?
That probably comes down to the individual situation. What is the groom expecting? And what do you expect of yourself?
One thing to remember about the movies is that those speeches are given by trained actors. And you're probably not even thinking about the background music designed to trigger emotions, on top of the whole movie setting up the perfect speech. So be realistic with yourself, for your own sanity, when it comes to your presentation.
BUT ... whether or not you have the time or talent to put a killer speech together, you can still have one written for you. If you're struggling with confidence about giving a best man speech, this can be a game changer. Not only because the right ideas are tied together, but a well written speech considers the rhythm or cadence of the words, and even lets you know where to pause or where to emphasize a word.
Meaning that a strong best man speech is one that will help to make you a better speaker if this is an area you're concerned about.
Should you hire a best man speech writer? If you have the time and talent for writing, you may not need to. In fact, my wedding speech form may trigger some ideas for you about the types of things you can put into a speech. The trick from there is figuring out how to make them all flow in with each other.
But if you're struggling to find the time, don't have the talent, or simply want a boost in confidence, hiring a best man speech writer might be the thing that helps to relieve the pressure and actually make you look forward to the wedding reception. Imagine wanting to give your best man's speech rather than sweating it out during the wedding service.
If you want a hand with writing a best man speech, you'll see from that wedding form that I get all the relevant information from you to make it PERSONAL. (You can fill it out yourself, or we can schedule a phone or Zoom call and I'll fill it out as we speak.) From there, it's my job to make things flow, to provide you with cadence and guidance, and to add in humor and heart.
