Wedding Speeches

Wedding Speeches
Many of us cringe at the thought of standing up in front of a large gathering to deliver a speech. After all, most of us have little or no experience of public speaking.

How different it would be if we had absolute confidence that the script we were reading from would completely capture the attention of our gazing audience. A speech that was emotive, enlightening, humorous (where applicable) and entertaining.

You can remove the stress and anxiety by employing the services of a professional Wedding Speech Writer.

County Bride Etiquette Pages - The Seating Plan

From County Bride's Etiquette Pages:
The Reception - Seating Plan

To avoid confusion it is essential to have a seating plan. Handwritten place cards - in the style of the invitation, numbers on tables and a plan of the room will help guests find their seat with the minimum of fuss. The ushers can be utilised to direct arriving guests to their table and help any who are having difficulty finding their seat. It may be a good idea to have a few extra places available for unexpected guests.
