@Mrs2b2014:  Everyone needs a bit of a rant sometimes, don’t feel bad!

FWIW, my mum isn’t all that excited either. Not because she doesn’t want us to get married/doesn’t like FI or anything, she has been nothing but supportive, but she isn’t that kind of person haha but luckily I knew that beforehand! 🙂

Also, my oldest brother was the best man in my other brothers wedding last year, and he flat out refused to make a speech and it really hurt younger brother. It was hard to convince him that older brother, though he doesn’t show it and t comes off as just being kindof an ass, really hates being the centre of attention and he really does hate public speaking! It was meant with no ill intent but sometimes its hard tosee that, especially on something to close/important to yourself 🙂

Sorry she’s been so negative 🙁 With the reading thing though, i know a LOT of people that wouldn’t want to do it.  We gave my sister in law the option of doing a reading or being a witness, and she chose witness.

Public speaking is terrifying to many people. Don’t take this personally.

I’m HUGE into toastmasters…I HATE SPEAKING IN FRONT OF PEOPLE.  I had to join this to conquer my fear.

Why did Toastmasters start?  To help people learn to give toasts for weddings (and at other various events!).

Try to encourage your sister to attend meetings, they are free to attend, to follow a manual there is a membership fee plus the manual fee.  But she should be able to go to as many free ones and practice ‘table topics’ where she can learn to speak in front of people…It’s international.

Just a thought….maybe it’ll help 

PS this is NOT spam, just advice!
