Are Custom Wedding Speeches Impersonal?

Text: "Are custom wedding speeches impersonal?" With a bright flower behind the text

One of the things I hear most often as a professional wedding speech writer is, “I could never have someone else write something so personal to me.” But, is it true? Are custom wedding speeches impersonal?

Are custom wedding speeches impersonal? Nope! The words and the story are your own

The job of the professional speech writer isn’t to write the speech they would give but to write the speech that the reader wants to share.

This is why questionnaires or conversations with the reader are integral parts of the writing process. This is how the writer learns about the reader, how they speak, what they want to share, how they feel, and the story they wish to share in their wedding speech.

Custom wedding speeches are not impersonal carbon copies.

When working with a professional speech writer, the speech is custom-written for the reader and isn’t something they’d write for all their clients as it’s a personalized speech.

A speech written for one of my clients would be entirely inappropriate for another client as the words, memories and sentiments are from the first client and are personalized and unique to only them.

We are all different, and while we may share a love for similar quotes or ideas, at the core, each speech will have its own voice and story.

Speech writers are trained to write in different voices and for individual people.

Writing speeches is not a “one size fits all” job.

As a writer, I have to naturally switch tones and voices from speech to speech to ensure the speech matches how each client speaks and feels.

One of the things that I often hear from my clients in their reviews is that the speeches that I write from them are all their own information but organized into a thoughtful speech that flows well.

I do not decide on your story or what you say; I simply help you put your words together into a meaningful speech that you’re proud to read on your loved one’s wedding day.

Speech writers know how to pull the most important information to tell a special story and make your wedding speech personalized.

Some clients know exactly what they want to say in their speech, which is terrific. However, some clients have no idea what they want to share.

Sometimes relationships are challenging and strained. Sometimes distance and time between visits leave things unsaid and make it difficult to speak from the heart and be vulnerable. Other times we’ve never been vulnerable or asked to share our own words, especially not in front of an audience.

Many unique challenges come with wedding speeches that professional wedding speech writers know how to work with.

  • We know how to get the perfect story.
  • We know how to weave your words together to help you share what’s in your heart.
  • And we know how to craft it all into a speech that matches you and that you’ll feel confident reading on such an important day.

So, are custom wedding speeches impersonal?
