一个星期前:写你的演讲。“从自我介绍开始,”斯托克说。然后讲一个关于新娘和新郎的有趣或感人的故事,说明这对夫妇的性格,以及他们的关系的特别之处。避免内部笑话,保持干净。Your speech needs to be age appropriate, so no spring break tales. Finally, close with a toast to the couple's future."

一天前:“排练你的演讲,把时间缩短到一到两分钟。Memorize key words and speak from those so the speech stays slightly informal."

1小时前:“避免饮酒。You may think a few drinks will keep you mellow, but the best way to stay calm is to know that you're prepared."

一分钟前:“喝一口橙汁——一点糖可以缓解紧张。”

前一秒:“微笑!If you look genuinely happy, everyone will forgive a mistake because they'll know that your words are from the heart."
