a great and memorable wedding speech.
Together, he and Megan came up with the following tips:
1. Don't Drink (Too Much).
2. Remember, Everyone is Rooting for You.
3. Don't Bring Up Your Phone
4. Keep it Short. Under 4 minutes.
5. Tease, but Don't Embarrass
6. Own The Moment, even if you mess up.
7. Be Honest, and Come from the Heart.
8. You're giving a speech about the couple, not just one
10. If you're not sure about the material, ask someone.
11. No slideshows.
12. Don't bring up exes.
With these tips, especially bringing it from the heart, you'll

that's important to you too. So go contact Katie - she can

herself on personal attention and is always available on short
