A Good Speech

I'm currently working on Serena and Matt's Montreal wedding right now, but a few sneak peeks reminded me that this was one of the best collection of wedding speeches I have ever heard at a wedding. Matt's Mom told a highly-embarrassing, tears-in-our-eyes-from-laughing speech that involved a 'birds and the bees talk' from when he was a 4 years old and wishing Serena a life without an extended dry spell. Emily, Serena's Maid of Honor and best friend, used this 7 Tips for Giving the Best Wedding Speech and had everyone laughing and crying by the end of it, talking about their 25+ years of friendship. My takeaway for a solid speech: be real, be you, be funny. And keep it short, people will appreciate it.
