Get your copy of “Wedding Speeches For Everyone!”

At long last, a book about writing wedding speeches that are bang up to date – not still based on the traditional roles from the last century or two, although there’s plenty of advice on how to do those well if they are your choice.

Added to that, though, are speech ideas for all the women in your family and circle of close friends … your children, both adult and younger … and of course, partners, friends and families of same-sex marriage partners.

Interestingly enough as of today’s date, there are no other books on Amazon or elsewhere that I can find, and I have been researching… that cover such a wide spread of wedding speech makers in as many social circumstances as I have included.

Although this is an eBook it’s not a short one. In all it runs to more than 90 single-spaced A4 pages, nearly 25,000 words which is just over half the length of an average business or self-help paperback book.

In fact I had to restrain myself with this book as there was so much more I could have shared … maybe in the next edition which I will produce and publish as a full-length book if you folks decide you’d like that!

At first glance that may seem a reasonable question. But having attended a number of same-sex weddings as well as bi-sex weddings, I find that one fact springs up at me time and time again, like the handle of a rake I just stepped on.

That is, what the hell difference is there? Weddings are about two people who love each other who want to formalise their relationship and share that with their families and friends. End of. Did I miss something here?

Anyway still, in some social circles, we’re expected to regard same-sex weddings as, er, different … until such time as everyone gets on with the fact that they’re not. It’s true to say that such things are changed for the better via evolution, not revolution. [Read more…]
