Speech Tip: Toasted! Watch how you drink at a wedding. Here’s some sobering thoughts: Drinks are common at weddings. Even at the historic Wedding in Cana (Gospel of John), alcohol was expected to be part of the celebration. However, avoid getting pickled before your speech. You are there to honor the bride or groom. Getting sauced will limit your ability to be articulate. You might mumble, forget your physical poise, and even, skip crucial lines.
At the time, you might think you are brilliant. The opposite will be evident on the video. It is ill-advised getting schnockered at a wedding in general, but, if you must, put off being fermented until after you speak.
