Have you ever been to a wedding and hit a complete blank wall when it comes time for you to extend your congratulations and best wishes to the happy couple? Well, if you have, don’t worry, you’re not the only person to do so. Certain situations just tend to make your forget what you were going to say, and this is why keeping a small book of wedding congratulations can come in handy.
These can help you to get through even a difficult task such as making a wedding toast, all you need to do is to keep the relevant sayings in mind. But then again, that was the entire problem wasn’t it, the fact that you couldn’t keep any good wedding congratulations in your mind.
Some people will mumble something that passes for your generic congratulations and be done with it, but others will cast around in their brain to find something more fitting for the occasion and come up with odd things.
So at a time like that, don’t try to find something positively genius to say, stick with the most basic of wedding congratulations, and move on. If you didn’t do well, then only you will be aware of this fact, and you can later go through the book on wedding congratulations and sayings which you bought just the other day, and look longingly at all the things you could have said, but didn’t.
The one thing that can be said about this, or indeed any other such situation, is that it gets decidedly easier as you go through a few of them, and you will find that eventually you can deliver a smooth, “Many happy congratulations!”, with a straight face and an unwavering voice.
There are however, only a limited number of ways in which you can give wedding congratulations to a bridal couple and once you have one that suits you, you can keep using it, even going so far as to make variations of it when necessary.
As mentioned it keeps getting easier with practice, and if you feel really nervous of going up to the couple and giving them your best wishes, you can even practice in front of a mirror until you feel comfortable with yourself.
There are more people out there than you might even realize who have the same problem that you do and who feel nervous when they are thrust outside of their normal social environment and find that they have to do something they have never done before in their lives.
This is why a book of wedding congratulations and sayings can come in so handy. And if you can’t find such a book near you, then you can always make use of something like the internet to help you find the sayings that you need.
