Father Of The Bride Wedding Speech- Can You Make Your Beautiful Daughter Proud With Your Father Of The Bride Wedding Speech?

  Banner 1


Were They Right And Your Daughter Wrong?

Michelle didn’t like the idea of asking her father to give a father of the bride wedding speech on her big day.
She knew her dad didn't have a big heart to face crowds.

Her dad had told her countless times that

public speaking wasn’t his fort because he had a rather unpleasant experience when called to say some words before his class in grade 6.

She knew he might say no to her proposal if she dared asked him to give a father of the bride wedding speech.
But she had also heard from ex-brides and friends that her dad was the first person to give a speech on her special day.

Worried Dad Looks For A Quick Solution So He Doesn’t Let His Daughter Down

Thankfully, her dad agreed to do that because he didn’t want to let down her ‘baby girl.’ But the old man was very nervous as a mouse in church as the wedding day drew near.
He just didn't know what to say, and how to find the right words.

One fine afternoon, he went to sit by a calm lake to reflect on what to say. It was there that help came his way. While seated on a wooden bench, he spotted afar off someone he thought he admired but had never had the chance to meet in person.
To his blissful surprise, he realized it was a TV anchorman.
A gentleman gifted with words.

'Thank God, I have met him’’, he muttered as he strode in the man’s direction. Pleasantries were exchanged and he told him of his plight.
‘’You can make it. Just relax and kick off with a good joke ’’, he consoled him. Michelle’s dad took advantage of their brief encounter and what he learned that sunny afternoon turned things around dramatically.

On the wedding day, Mr.Olseen grabbed the mic from the master of ceremonies after being introduced and began

‘Bonsoir Madames et Messieurs.Vous etes bienvenus(welcome everyone in French)…Good evening ladies and gentlemen'', he added.

The crowd was awed and they stood up to give him a warm applause. Her daughter was full of joy as her blue eyes met her dad’s dark pupil. Everyone was simply stunned by his eloquence in French and how he began his speech wonderfully.
The groom’s family traveled all the way from France so he addressed them in their native language.

Let This Thing Count If You Want To Be Complimented

A good Samaritan may not come your way as Olseen, but how well you begin your speech might contribute to making you the best speaker of the day.
A good opening or introduction makes the audience fall in love with you and makes them more attentive to what you have to say.

Remember, first impressions are always golden. If you begin with something boring, your father of the bride speech will not be memorable. What's more, a great introduction can help you overcome nervousness and relieve you of speech tensions and anxieties.
Granted, here are tips and tricks to help you give an introduction that will win you the respect of the audience.

If you are addressing a multicultural wedding like Olseen did, you could take the pains to learn how the other family greets in their language.

For instance, if you daughter is marrying a German, you can learn to say good evening or good afternoon in that tongue and weave it into your message. What if I don't know anyone who can give me lessons in German? You might ask.
You need not worry. You can simply look it up in the search engines or ask the groom to help you. If he can’t speak his mother tongue, he can still ask his family for help.

Having gotten help from him, you should try pronouncing the words your own way. Your pronunciation need not be perfect because how you say it might even add to the fun on the wedding day.

You might also decide to begin with a quote on marriage or your personal reflections on it.
To bring out the creative genius in you, you can render your introduction in song. Take for instance the lyrics of this popular 1961 love song by Ben E. King

When the night has come
And the land is dark
And the moon is the only light we'll see
No, I won't be afraid,
No, I won't be afraid
Just as long as you stand, by me
So darling darling, stand by me, oh, stand by me,
Oh, stand, stand by me, stand by me.

If the sky that we look upon
Should tumble and fall
Or the Mountain should crumble in the sea,
I won't cry,
I won't cry,
No I won't shed a tear.
Just as long as you stand, stand by me.

You can make the verse above your own by substituting some words with your daughter's name and the groom!

Here's How To Do Just That!

No, Jackie won't be afraid
So long as Jerry, stand by her
So Jerry, stand by her, oh, stand by her,
Oh, stand, stand by her, stand by her.

If the sky that we look upon
Should tumble and fall
Or the Mountain should crumble in the sea,
She won't cry,
I won't cry,
No I won't shed a tear.
Because I know Jerry will be standing so close.

Got the picture?

So do same and you sure will get a standing ovation if you do it so well. If you know of any love song you can use it instead of Ben King’s tune.

Have You Thought About Asking The Guests Questions?

By commencing your father of the bride wedding speech with a question, the audience will be more receptive to your message and you'll build rapport for that.
An example is this: How would you feel ladies and gentleman if you have to give away your only child? Well, I am filled with mixed emotions because I ...

You can also decide to tie your message to a story or to a quote or even an important date in history.

Have You Seen This Example Too?

Let's see how  humorist Garrison Keillor's quote: ''A daughter is a high class hostage.'' can be turned into a brief speech.

Comedian and Storyteller Garrison Keillor's once said that the father of a daughter is nothing but a high-class hostage. That’s true because a father turns a stony face to his sons, berates him, shakes his antlers,paws the ground,snorts,runs them off into the underbrush,but when his daughter puts her arm around his shoulder and says,''Daddy, I need to ask you something,'' he feels like a pat of butter in a hot frying pan.
But when his daughter tells him that she has found the man of her dreams, he freezes like ice.

(This piece can be humorous too. But if you want to achieve that feeling, then, your facial expressions and gestures should match the words used)

Unlike our others, we strive to get you proven samples of father of the bride speeches so you are empowered to write your own speech without trying so hard.

So, we want you to briefly study the example below from King Carl XVI Gustaf of Sweden! They were his exact words when his daughter tied the knot.

A Great King Wants You To See His Wedding Speech

Here we go

Your majesties, your imperial highness, your royal highness's, Ladies and Gentlemen, Her majesty the Queen and I wish to greet you a with a most heartily welcome to the royal palace and to the wedding gala dinner.

(comments: it is mandatory to begin your address with a greeting and an acknowledgement of the guests and the king does that beautifully)You also have to do same.

On behalf of my family and especially on behalf of my oldest daughter and son-in-law i wish to thank you for coming and participating in our joy.

(comments: some couple decide to give separate talks but if you want to do a joint speech, then you should do so on behalf of your wife as clearly stated already. Use the opportunity to say something nice about the audience too as seen subsequently)

You will always be a part of this unforgettable and memorable day. Your royal highness's Crown Prince Daniel and Princess Victoria! Dear Newly weds! I will like to wish you all the best for the life ahead together!

It is a major step in life to enter into marriage for not only the bride and groom but also their parents. The promise you have made to each other today on mutual support and loyalty ties the two of you further together.

That's beautiful? Isn't it? Well done Your Majesty! Don’t panic because you too can write a memorable father of the bride wedding speeches like his.

Here’s what one nervous and skeptical dad called Glen(joined the program) sent over after the wedding was over
