Official: Wedding Speech Writers Make You Happier

OK we might be summarising here but spend money on saving time and you'll be glad you did. Whether it's getting someone to mow your garden, clean your house or 'write my wedding speech' - hiring in help is proven to make you happy.

(*Of course, if you’re looking for more than ‘advice’, check out all the different ways the Speechy team can help you write & deliver a great speech. Or check out our new AI-powered team member, SpeechyAI.)

A new study, published last week in the journal Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences asked 6,000 working adults to spend $40 over two weeks. The first week, they could only buy material goods. On the second, they had to make timesaving investments, like hiring somebody to clean their house or run errands for them. By a wide margin, the people who spent money on lackeys reported being substantially happier than those who just filled their homes with more stuff they probably didn’t need.

Why? Ashley Whillans, the study’s lead author and a professor at the Harvard Business School, says that culturally we tend to focus on how to buy into positive experiences, like a meal at a fancy restaurant or a holiday. But we should probably be paying more attention to the benefits of buying ourselves out of negative experiences, she says.

Now Speechy clearly doesn’t consider writing a wedding speech to be a negative experience (in fact, we’re kind of kinky and rather like it). Some people, however, see writing a speech on par with going to Ikea on a Bank Holiday and realising the queue for meatballs is over an hour long (or is that just our personal idea of hell?)

Anyway, the conclusion is, if you’re not enjoying the process of crafting your speech, feel free to give us a call. We’d love to give you your life back. And if it means we’re too busy to go shopping for a Billy bookcase, then so be it.

''I had an unbelievable experience working with Speechy. From the moment I got in touch with them I felt supported and come the day of my best mans speech, it went down a storm with a standing ovation.''
''Speechy deserves more than 5 stars. (They) produced a factual, funny Mother of the Bride speech with just the right amount of emotion..... it was ingenious. Thank you so much for the wonderful & priceless memory of having delivered my speech at my daughter’s wedding and nailed it ... and got a standing ovation too. My children were very proud of me, including my new son-in-law! ''
''These Guys are tremendous! One main point is that its not their speech - its yours! This is because it is based totally around what you would like to say, but its the spin that Speechy puts on it, that is the magical bit... Ordinary words become a hilariously entertaining event. There were giggles, applauds, laughs, tears, cheers and standing ovation – all in that order!''
''Feeling anxious or stressed about an upcoming speech? Look no further than Speechy... I just delivered my Best Man speech this past weekend and absolutely crushed it. I was nervous leading up to the moment, but while delivering my speech, I didn't want the experience to end, the room was hooked, and laughing at every joke. Worth every penny... Thank you!''
''Navigating through the wedding industry often feels like you’re stuck on a conveyer belt....Speechy is the complete opposite. They treat you and your wedding like you’re the one and only. I couldn’t recommend them more.''
''Heidi and the whole team at Speechy are an absolute gem! In addition to their talent and extensive experience in speech writing, Heidi had an impressive way of listening to me talk about mine and my partners personal anecdotes, before putting it in such a funny and beautiful way that it felt as though she’d known us for years.''
