5-Star Rated Wedding Speechwriter & Strategist Den Pope






Most Wedding Speakers Sound the Same and Bore Everyone


Hi, I’m Den Pope…

The bride, groom and guests are hoping you’re going to knock your speech out of the park.

But they’ve heard enough wedding speeches to know it’s much more likely you’re going to give another canned, do-it-yourself speech filled with dull, rambling stories, silly jokes and generic lines you found on Google and they’ve all heard before.

Surprise and thrill them with something original and epic.

For many years now, I’ve been focusing the memories and writing funny, warm, original speeches for wedding speakers with absolutely zero speechwriting or public speaking experience (not to mention a fear of public speaking).

I’ll help you nail it, too.


Give the Best Wedding Speech They’ve Ever Heard

Your relationship with the bride or groom is like no one else’s. But it’s difficult to step back from years of thoughts, memories and feelings to make sense of it all. I help you get to the heart, soul and humor of your relationship to make this a speech only one person in the world can give—you.

Your voice and personality can’t be captured in canned speeches, generic compliments and silly lines pulled off Google. Audiences want an authentic, inside look into your relationship and will feel bored and manipulated if you try and con them with the same empty platitudes everyone says.

The best speech is grounded in the fact humans have been hard-wired for story since the Stone Age. So like a movie, your speech must grab, entertain and surprise the audience in a simple, easy-to-follow narrative structure that is more showing than telling.


“I had so many people come up to me at the wedding to tell me the speech made them laugh, cry and was one of the best speeches they have heard.”

Danielle, California (continue)

“I had well over 50% of the people attending the wedding compliment me on my speech. What a great feeling! My daughter and new son in law loved it as well. When I first decided to hire you, I thought you were a little pricey, but after going through the full DEN experience, I can honestly say the fee you charge is a real value.”

Steve, Illinois (continue)

Customer Reviews

“I’m a skeptical person by nature. Den exceeded my expectations. He has this down to a science. I got so many compliments that night I can't even count.”

Connor, California (continue)
