Wedding Anniversary Speech For Parents(Mom And Dad)

 

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


And


'' 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

'' Parental love is the only love that is truly selfless, unconditional and forgiving. ''---Dr T.P.Chia

'' We never know the love of a parent till we become parents ourselves.'' ---Henry Ward Beecher

'' Parents were the only ones obligated to love you; from the rest of the world you had to earn it.''  Ann Brashares

''When you look into your mother's eyes, you know that is the purest love you can find on this earth.'' ---Mitch Albom

'' What it's like to be a parent: It's one of the hardest things you'll ever do but in exchange it teaches you the meaning of unconditional love. '' Nicholas Sparks



'' The most loving parents and relatives commit murder with smiles on their faces. They force us to destroy the person we really are: a subtle kind of murder.''---  Jim Morrison



'' 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


''By loving them for more than their abilities we show our children that they are much more than the sum of their accomplishments.'' ---Eileen Kennedy-Moore

 

''No matter how far we come, our parents are always in us.''---Brad Meltzer

'' A parent's love is whole no matter how many times divided.'' ---Robert Brault

 

''A father's goodness is higher than the mountain, a mother's goodness deeper than the sea.'' ---Japanese Proverb


Let us now see how we can use at least two of those references to get something written.

 

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

And


''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.

Anniversary-157248_960_720

There have been high and low points in your parents’ lives and they are the only ones who can really tell you what has kept them going.

Let’s us not forget the countless sacrifices, love and dedication that they have shown to ensure you truly become a successful person.

Are you not proud of them? Hope you are!

 

How To Make Your Parents Proud

As they celebrate this huge milestone, you also have to make them very proud and tell the invited guests, your own family and friends of your deep love, respect and admiration for them.

 

One way of the best ways of doing that is by giving a heartfelt speech, and that is not very easy, particularly if you are not accustomed to writing and giving wedding speeches. And I hope you are not since this happens once in a lifetime.

 

Sometimes, you even get the nerves if you have tons of experience writing speeches and speaking in public.

 

Why You Too Can Make It! 

 

I have written lots of speeches for so many people across the world and I know what is running through your mind at this very moment as you search for the right words to honor your parents on their 50th wedding anniversary.

 

Here Are Some Great Ideas That Work

 

To write your golden anniversary address or tribute without trying so hard, you have to get 50th Wedding Speech Anniversary speech samples or examples for parents as they will undoubtedly help you express your exact thoughts and emotions into very beautiful words.

Tonight, I’d like to show you one of the brilliant sample wedding anniversary speeches floating around online.

I promise to also dissect it and try to show you how the writer came up with it, so you can write your own great message with the insights and analysis I will be sharing as we look at excerpts of that long speech by Rosalind Wright Picard.

Please, it’s quite long, so be patient as I break it into its various sections.

 

Here You Have It

First, let us examine the introduction.

'' They say that you don't really appreciate your parents until you become one, but that is not true.

While I admit I probably never truly appreciated your cleaning up after me when I vomited all over myself, my bed sheets, my stuffed animals, and the rug, until I had to do this for my own sons (parenting has significantly elevated my threshold for "gross"), there is much more to say.

On this very special occasion of your 50th anniversary, I would like to share some ways that I have greatly appreciated both of you, and especially your staying married for half a century.''

(comments: Though Rosalind did a fantastic job here, I think she should have kicked off by telling everyone who she is, then greets the invited guests and thank them for coming to support her parents…YOU should never forget to do that when you are writing your own speech okay?)

 

What can you infer from the lines : ''They say that you don't really appreciate your parents until you become one, but that is not true.''

I like that part of her story because it is an attention- getter and do you realize how it kept you nodding to every word she said.

Love-1951386_960_720

You see, after you have told everyone who you are and said your ‘’thank you’s’’, you have to open with a killer introduction.

Here are simple ways to do that.

 

Take Note Of These Things

  • You can begin with a popular saying and connect its theme to how your parents raised you and what they went through in life

 

  • You can simply express gratitude to your parents and tell them why today is such a special day and why it means so much to you.

 

  • You can share a funny story and tie it to how you related to your parents when you were under their roof. Here you simply put down lots of anecdotes (funny and not so funny) with the view to sharing those that are very memorable.

 

  • You can jump straight into the ‘’ring’’ and tell everyone what you think has kept your parents going for 50 years in marriage.

 

  • You can even start with a quote about the secrets of successful marriages and work something from that angle.

There are so many many ways to hook up your audience and if you can do that well, your presentation will stand out.

 

Rosalind’s speech continues: '' While most children appreciate their parents for giving them biological life, I don't know to whom I owe that. And while everything for which I am grateful is ultimately conditional upon the decision a teenage woman made,

I was an "accident", "unplanned", and my gratitude is that she believed that somewhere out there was somebody like you, with whom I would be so much better off. The fact is you are the kind of couple whom so many love, the kind who inspires others with your friendly welcome, generosity, and kindness to all.''

Your regular acts of goodness change the mood of those around you: they turn road-raged insensitive maniacs into the kind of drivers who not only let you merge in front of them without ramming you in the rear, but who stopped on the road to give you a helping hand and a smile when in need.

You are a couple who has a positive impact on the world, and this impact has the power to counter the despair of a young women in trouble, helping her know that it is worth choosing life for her little one, because of incredibly loving parents like you.''

Please go back to the introduction. I hope you have done that.

Now, come back (see right up) and read the body.

Have you noticed the connection? Did you realize that the body is just a natural extension of the main idea in the opening lines of her tribute to her dad and mom?

 

Never Forget To Do This

 

As you write the body of the speech, there are some critical things you should take into consideration to help you write so well. And that’s the main idea or pillar you want to build your speech on.

Here are a few ideas to help you out.

  • You can simply express thanks to your parents and say why you love them.
  • You can tell everyone how they raise you up and the lessons you learned from them.
  • You can comment about their contribution to the welfare of family and friends.
  • You can talk about how their shared interests and goals have brought them thus far.
  • You can even tell the wedding guests how they helped you walk on troubled waters when you faced difficulties in your own marriage.
  • You can talk about the qualities your own dad brought into the relationship, that of your mom as well and how the couple blended so well despite their seeming differences.
  • You can share funny tales or memories to get everyone laughing and then write about the lessons learned. ….plus so much more

 As you build the body, don’t forget to spice it up with wise quotes and words of wisdom. Though your parents are much more experience in life than you are, they will appreciate that a lot.

 

There are so many endless possibilities to pick from when crafting the body of your message, so let those words flow from your heart, and everyone will be happy. Your parents particularly will be proud of you, and everyone will say you are wise beyond your years.

 

Add to the body what you admire about them and how they inspire you.

Do you see how Rosalind does it here:

''Mom and Dad, your honesty, integrity, love, patience, gentleness, kindness, commitment, and willingness to forgive shine as a strong inspiration to me to strive for the same in my marriage.

You have been blessed with the fortitude and faith to stay together, despite a multitude of forces that aim to pull a couple apart. The example of your marriage reveals something much greater than any individual can ever attain….''

Finally, you have to wish them well in the years ahead.

Here Is A Perfect Way To End It

 

An example being: '' On this very special occasion of your 50th wedding anniversary, with a heart of deepest gratitude,

I give you my honor, appreciation, admiration, and love.  May God continue to bless your marriage, and may you enjoy your celebration on April 16, and throughout this Golden Year.   I love you Rosalind ''
