Whether you’re giving away a daughter or son or gaining the same, or paying tribute to the bride or groom, this may be a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to occupy–and shine–in the spotlight. We’ve had the privilege of writing many Father/Mother of the Bride or Groom speeches and Best Man/Maid of Honor toasts.  Here are some comments from folks who were clearly delighted with our efforts on their behalf:


“I tried doing my own, but as the big day was fast approaching, I realized I needed help. A friend recommended Speech Savior, and from the first phone call, I knew I was in good hands.  They did a thorough interview and put together a terrific speech that I was proud to deliver.  Kudos for a job well done.”

–Larry G., Potomac, Father of the Bride


“I can talk with the best of them, but writing speeches isn’t in my skill set.  It’s pretty amazing how they took my thoughts and put them in words that sounded like me.  It’s a real talent I wish I had.”

– Stefanie R., Bethesda, Bridesmaid


Most of the people in the room didn’t know that I used this group for my speech.  I was nervous at first, but they were so buttoned up and made me real comfortable.  It was funny, heartfelt, and most important to me, it sounded genuine.  I would recommend SS to anyone who knows what they want to say, but can’t seem to write it down.” 

– Samantha L., Wash., D.C., Maid of Honor


It’s no easy task to stand up in front of family and friends and talk without either rambling on way too long or putting people to sleep with accolades of your Bar or Bat Mitzvah child.  Parents’ remarks can be tricky, all the more reason to turn to a professional to write something that is equally interesting, informative, and perhaps, even a bit inspiring:


“Speech Savior asked me all sorts of questions to get a feel for both me and my son. The speech they wrote captured so much of what I wanted to say.  I was relieved and impressed with the whole operation.”

– Rick K., Arlington, Father of Bar Mitzvah


“Speaking to a crowd is tough for me, as is finding the right things to say.  I decided to put my faith in experts and couldn’t be happier with how it turned out.  I would absolutely use them again if I had another opportunity.”

– Jan L., North Potomac, Mother of Bat Mitzvah


Accepting an award for your own corporate or community achievements vs. honoring an associate or professional colleague for their accomplishments can be equally challenging.  You may want to strike a balance between humility and humor, or the occasion may call for a more motivational message, in which case your words may need to be chosen and delivered as more of a call to action, encouraging the audience to take the initiative in support of an issue or cause.  We can come to your rescue in either scenario, as these folks will attest:


“Even when I know my subject, and my audience, I find it difficult to construct a talk that offers just the right amount of insight and information.  I told Speech Savior I wanted to impart my knowledge without coming across as a know-it-all.  They did an outstanding job with my remarks and the response was exactly what I was hoping to receive.”

– Larry C., Washington, DC, Keynote Speaker


“They really got inside my head and pulled out, not only the specific things I needed to say, but somehow they captured the exact emotional tone in which to express them. That’s a real art and I’m lucky to have found a resource that has it mastered.”

– Debbie W., Kensington, Celebratory Address


“I wanted the audience to know two things–how much I appreciated the recognition AND how much more all of us need to do to continue our collective effort toward achieving our goal.  My speech needed to incite initiative and provoke participation, and from the crowd response, I would say it more than did its job.”

– Gary K., Reston, Award Recipient
