Is it OK to read a wedding speech?
Unless you’re a professional actor, it’s probably best not to trust the whole thing to memory – but reading out your speech can be really dull for guests to listen to. Your speech won’t sound like it’s being read word-for-word but you’ve got enough prompts that you won’t forget any points.
