Clients always ask us whether they should use wedding speech cue cards or notes. The answer is… ta dah … completely up to you but we’d highly recommend it.
Of course, if you memorise your speech it will inevitably help your delivery but have cue cards or notes just in case, as, trust us here, standing in front of a hundred-odd family and friends is much more intimidating than a business presentation. Especially when you have to be funny.
Even actors have notes when they accept an award and those folk are paid to remember words!
