Jennifer Paik has been a maid of honour not once, not twice, but an impressive four times, most recently for her childhood best friend's Newport Beach, California, yacht wedding three years ago.

The first time she gave one of those speeches, at age 27, it was "terrible," too improvised. She nailed it this last time, she said, by sticking to a friend's advice: Tell stories.
