1. Start with a powerful statement

Make a bold statement that reflects your personality and sets the tone for your speech. This can be a great way to capture your guests' attention and create a memorable opening. For example, you could start with a quote from a famous woman who inspires you or a personal anecdote that highlights your strength and determination.

2. Share your journey

As a strong, bold, game-changing woman, you have a unique story to tell. Take this opportunity to share your journey with your guests. This could include your struggles, triumphs, and lessons learned. Your story can inspire and empower others, and remind them that anything is possible with hard work and determination.

3. Pay tribute to other game-changing women

Take a moment to pay tribute to the game-changing women who have inspired and influenced you. This can be a great way to show your appreciation for the women who have paved the way for you and to inspire others to follow in their footsteps.

4. Speak to your partner as an equal

As a strong, bold, game-changing woman, you deserve a partner who respects and supports you. When speaking to your partner during your speech, make sure to address them as an equal. This can be a great way to show your guests that you have found a partner who values and appreciates your strength and independence.

5. Inspire your guests

Use your speech to inspire your guests to be their best selves. Share your wisdom and experiences to motivate others to pursue their dreams and overcome their obstacles. Your words can have a profound impact on your guests, and can help them to see the power and potential that lies within themselves.

6. Keep it light and fun

Just because you're a strong, bold, game-changing woman doesn't mean your speech has to be serious and heavy. You can infuse your speech with humor, wit, and playfulness to keep your guests engaged and entertained. This can be a great way to show your guests that you're not afraid to let loose and have fun, even on your special day.

In conclusion, as a strong, bold, game-changing woman, your wedding speech is an opportunity to showcase your strength, courage, and determination. By using these untraditional/alternative ideas, you can create a speech that is memorable, impactful, and true to who you are. Happy International Women's Day!
