April 26, 2012 - PRLog -- We've all been to weddings where the best man's speech has drunkenly embarrassed the bride and the groom, the father of the bride has been overcome with emotion and can barely get his words out and the groom has bored everyone to tears.

No  one wants that cringing "Four Weddings and a Funeral" embarrassing moment, or worse, have the speeches becoming a YouTube sensation. Despite spending thousands on their big day most couples and members of the wedding party rarely give much thought to the speeches. But a great speech can make a wedding and a bad one can ruin it.  Clever couples are hiring Lawrence Bernstein, of <, a professional speech writer who provides a bespoke service for less than what most brides spend on their bouquet.

One of the most cost effective ways of making sure your wedding is a real celebration and a memorable occasion is by hiring a professional speech writer.  Despite spending vast amounts of time and huge sums on the details of The Big Day, guests rarely remember the flowers, the food or the dress but everyone remembers a great speech and no-one forgets a bad one. There is nothing worse than having to sit through an embarrassing, ill-judged, badly written speech delivered by a drunken best man, rambling groom or an over-emotional father.

To make sure the day goes without a hitch, increasing numbers of people are contacting professional speech writer, Lawrence Bernstein at to help entertain and amuse their guests. Great Speechwriting is a rapidly growing, UK based professional speech writing business that provides witty, intelligent, original speeches for its clients.

“There’s a lot of pressure to get that speech right, and its amazing what an effect the quality of speeches can have on the success of a wedding”, says Lawrence Bernstein, founder of Great Speechwriting..

Unlike online “cut and paste” speech writing services, every speech written by Lawrence is bespoke and authentic. Lawrence and his team spend time with clients, getting to know them and the way they speak, so that the content is appropriate and relevant and that the words he writes not only sound like they were written by the speaker but also that they come from the heart. He also coaches on delivery, making sure clients get the best out of the material he provides.

The average wedding costs £15,000, with many families spending a lot more than that. The average bride spends between about £2500 on her dress, and that’s without the shoes, and the average spend on wedding flowers is over £500 . A professionally written best man, father of the bride or groom speech can cost less than some brides spend on their bouquet and a great speech can have a significantly greater impact.

“However beautiful the bride and the flowers, these will be overshadowed if the speeches are full of terrible jokes, embarrassing stories that no one finds funny or deadly dull recitals of the happy couples’ achievements.  A professionally written, bespoke speech can transform  a cookie cutter wedding into something unique and memorable for all the right reasons”, says Lawrence.
