Ideas And Tips To Help You Write A Unique And Memorable Wedding Anniversary Speech For Your Parents
Do You Really Love Them?
Let me ask you this simple question. What do these quotes have in common?
''We never know the love of a parent till we become parents ourselves''---Henry Ward Beecher
'' One of the greatest titles in the world is parent, and one of the biggest blessings in the world is to have parents to call mom and dad'' ---Jim Demint
The quotes above certainly have the theme of love running through them. That is my answer. Though you might have several other answers for me.
I don’t know if you are a parent, but if you are, then you can understand the pain our parents have gone through to give us the future we so much enjoy.
And I think being a parent is one of the deepest calling of every race in every generation. Talk about the unconditional love, selfless sacrifice and devotion.
And so, on the occasion of your parents wedding anniversary, it is mandatory that you pour your heart and mind soul into saying something that will make them proud that you are their child.
Granted, not every person can do justice to such an endeavor. I love you. I love your family. Especially your parents and I want to help you make your parents very proud.
That is why, I am right here this sweating it out here so you can find the right words to say as they celebrate their milestone.
Before we delve into the heart of the matter, I want you to keep this in your mind all the time.
Having a positive mental attitude is the main driver of success you will have in life.
Which is why you need to be very careful about how you see your own abilities. You see, whenever you are set to perform a newer task, there will always be a release of events that happened in the past.
Perhaps you felt the pangs of pain and nervousness when you are asked to address an audience years ago, and you are thinking you are going to embarrass yourself this time too.
But, your story can be totally different if you constantly expect the best this time around and also hold in your mind’s eye a positive image of speaking confidently before an audience. And as you keep at it repeatedly, your confidence will grow and you will do so well.
Do This And You Will Be In Charge
Having said that, you need to choose a style you want to go for. You can choose from being poetic, being funny, being sentimental, rendering your message in the form of a song or a combination or two or more styles?
Choosing your style should go hand in hand with the the kind of wedding anniversary your parents are celebrating: 15th, 20th, 25th, 30th, 35th, 40th, 50th,…as that will help you decide on the right words to use.
Having said that, let us now see where to get ideas from to help us pay glowing tribute to our parents. I hope you don’t mind my use of ‘’ our’’. Remember, every parent is an asset to every child.
Use Wonderful Tales To Get This Done
The best thing that will make your speech stand out is stories. You are free to go for both true and false stories. But, if you go for something fictional, make sure you connect its theme to your message, else it will back fire. Don’t take that route if you are not too comfortable with that. You can simply share real anecdotes.
You have lived with your parents all these years, and I bet you can recall so many wonderful stories about them.
So, take a paper and pen and recall all those exciting times you have had as family and see which ones you really want to use.
By the way, what you decide to use should be very interesting.We all love interesting tales. Hope you do?
Here Are Other Ways To Go About It
Other simple ways to go about it is to say why you are so thankful that you have them for parents or you simply share what lessons you have learned from them that has helped you become a better mom or dad yourself.
Your mom and dad have made countless sacrifices to stay in marriage and they will appreciate it if you say how their marriage has been an excellent model. It also shows that you are also a wise child.
If you are tongue-tied and don’t really know what to say, you can put yourself in the mood for the clear expression of your ideas by listening to love songs. As you do that, please put down phrases and some lyrics you want to use for your speech.
Go For Beautiful Quotes
Aside that, you can go for quotes.
Did you see how I began this piece with a question and its accompanying quotes?
Go online and do search for quotes on parental love, and try getting some words you can use for your wedding anniversary speech for your mom and dad. Here are a few quotes you can use

Let us use these quotes
''The depth of the love of parents for their children cannot be measured. It is like no other relationship. It exceeds concern for life itself. The love of a parent for a child is continuous and transcends heartbreak and disappointment.''---James E. Faust
''No matter how far we come, our parents are always in us.'' --- Brad Meltzer
Here we go now…
Dave and Amanda, there is nothing that can compare to the love that I have for both of you. My love for you runs so deep not only because you have been loving parents, bout you really care about others. I owe how far I have come to you.
I guess you can see how we used the borrowed words: ''how far we come'' and ''The depth of the love of parents for their children'' as seen in those quotes. That is essentially the stuff most speeches are made up of.
Why You Have To Watch Videos
Another place, you might want to go for some moving words is by searching on the numerous video sharing platforms search terms like wedding anniversary speech for mom and dad or parents, as well as terms which are not related to what you are looking for and you will get so many ideas, lines and words to use.
You can also go for rich ideas by quoting romantic quotes from movies. Don’t worry because I am going to give you a few of them, and even show how to use them to create nice memories.
Many people don’t do this, but if you do, your speech will definitely become very memorable. Go to your parents and ask for their wedding video. Watch it over and over again, and use some of their words for your message.
For example, if after seeing that old recording on tape, you discover that your parents said in their speeches or vows that they were going to live till the end of times, you can use that message as a starter.
Okay, suppose, your parents said that right?
Then, a good way to start your speech might be this after you show an excerpt to them
How A Video Helped Us To Write A Short Speech
''Ladies and Gentlemen, in the video Mike and Amanda told us that they were going to remain best friends till the end of time.
The first time I saw it. I cried.
I have been married for 10 years now and I can see what my mom and dad said wasn’t in a jest.
It shows that even before I was born, they were thinking about me and my other siblings more than they were thinking about themselves because they knew for sure that we were going to come into the scene and they had to do everything in their power to make things work so they could pass on a legacy of hope, perseverance, and love to us…
Wow, what an accomplishment!''
Did you see how I did that? That’s the stuff that characterizes all great wedding anniversary speeches.
One final place to see is to consult wedding anniversary speech samples. We reviewed one the other day as we examined how we can get something out of it, so I think it is must-read piece if you decide to borrow from what others have written.
