Dear Worried Wedding Speech giver,

''I am Adams from the United States. This happened to our family prior to my daughter’s wedding and it can happen to you too unless you…

Life isn't  always fair-Is it?

Granny once said life was not fair. I found it hard to understand her words until tragedy struck our home. Words cannot adequately describe how I felt  as my  daughter’s wedding drew near.

Sadly,however,days  before  her  big  day, my wife’s brother was involved in a bloody road accident when returning home from work. His cherry-red Toyota Highlander ran into a truck. The vehicle was terribly mangled and three of his co-workers died on the spot.

When news of the disaster reached us, we were simply shocked and we couldn’t apply our minds to the wedding planning.

Our wedding plans grounded to a halt.

I wondered why that dark cloud over our roof at that crucial moment. Our hearts was in our mouth and we didn’t know what to do. We had to attend to him all the time and we lost touch with the wedding planning festivities.

We had wanted to cancel the marriage plans but we couldn’t because many of our guests had written or emailed to confirm that they were coming.

My daughter couldn’t take it . She feared her kind uncle might not been able to make it. Added to this was the fact everything had come to a halt.Sometimes, she did sob like a worried child on my wife’s shoulders but I kept reassuring her that all shall be well.

In less than two weeks to go, the doctor carried out a surgery on his right thigh. It took twelve hours for the doctors to correct a dislocated bone.

Despite the odds prevailing against us, we put our acts together to ensure nothing was left to chance. The wedding preparations resumed albeit on a rather low note.

An unusual miracle!

One sunny afternoon, something unusual occurred was awakened by the persistent cries of the home phone and so I quickly grabbed the receiver.

‘Is this Adam?’, the caller asked.

’Of course’,I countered.

‘’Michael is doing so well and we have agreed to discharged Monday afternoon.’’,she said reassuringly.

I broke the ‘’sweet’’ news of his recovery to the family and everyone was in joy. My wife knelt and raised both arms the way Holy fathers pray in a monastery. I broke down in tears of joy and tears dripped down my daughter’s soft cheeks.

It was unbelievable when we picked him up from the hospital. He didn’t suffer any bone damage.He wasn’t even hobbling.

He was the Mike we always knew! I never believed in miracles till that day I saw him walk out of the hospital with my naked eyes! Seeing the extent of damage of his auto, I thought he did come out paralyzed.

My wife came to my rescue

His remarkable recovery lifted our spirits and we worked around the clock to ensure things were properly fixed for our daughter's marriage. With less than three days to our daughter’s wedding, my wife asked, ‘’Honey, how can we make the day memorable?’’

Frankly, I couldn’t think of a neat idea. Hours later, she suggested a wedding speech. My face fell at her suggestion because I once embarrassed myself when asked to give a short speech at a family party.

‘’Emily, we better give her childhood scrapbook’’, I countered

‘’That’s OK for her but how about the guests? I read from somewhere that the giving of wedding speeches linger on their minds more than anything else. Please forget about your past public speaking failures and give it a try.’’ , She admonished

‘’OK my dear'', i replied

This goldmine was very valuable and it can help you

I must confess that I went online and scoured everywhere until I found your speech samples. It was exactly what I was looking for. It helped me to put my exact thoughts and emotions into words.

The tips on overcoming wedding speech worries abated my fears and it inspired me to develop self-confidence. It was a real blessing.

I shared the story of my brother –in-law’s incredible recovery and the challenges that ensued. Mike, my brother-in-law, my wife and daughter and some guests had moist eyes. As I blurted on, they couldn’t fight back their tears any longer.

Some of the wedding guests even shared tears. They were moved by my wedding speech. When It was over the family came to hug me and a guest thought I was a pro!

The experience was so magical. The success stories saved me.

Eulogy Speech For Wife By Husband: How To Write A Heartfelt Funeral Tribute For Your Wife

 

Have you lost your wife recently and are looking for tips and ideas to help you write a touching eulogy for your wife?

 

The thought of giving one can be very overwhelming in this very difficult time. So, just stick with me for a little while and I will share with you everything you need about…

  • Writing a beautiful eulogy for wife
  • How to make the most of eulogy for wife examples to honor her memory
  • How to get ideas for your tribute for your wife and mother of your children
  • How to make your eulogy speech for your wife funny, heartfelt, and inspiring.
  • How to end a eulogy for your wife
  • Plus, so much more

 

The first question on the mind of every man who has lost his spouse is:

 

What Should I Say At My Wife’s Funeral?

 

Let me start by saying there’s nothing more beautiful than spending the rest of your life with someone you love and truly care for.  

 

It’s interesting how and where many find the love of their lives. Some find true love on a bus. Others find on a vacation get away and some others find it in school.

Eulogy for speech samples by husband to wife

 

Where did you find the love of your life? Was it love at first sight?  Did it blossom over time?

 

I don’t know you met each other. But, I can only imagine how you felt when you first met the love of your life.  Before you knew it, you started dating and realized that you were so much into each other.

 

When it eventually dawned on you that she fits you like a glove, you went down on knee and asked her to marry you.

 

You exchanged vows. You had your wedding dance. You were blessed with kids. Life took off as expected. You promised to love and stand by each other until the end of time.

 

When you least expected it, she died; leaving you to face this cruel world alone with no one to hold your back.  Your inspirer, muse, friend, confidant, rock, your babe is gone. Who do you turn to now for help, support, advice and reassurance? Only God knows.

 

Well, I don’t know how long you were together. If you just got married, been together for a just year, a quarter or half of a century and death have robbed you of the love of your life, I can feel your pain because it really hurts.

 

I feel deeply sorry for your loss and my thoughts and prayers are with you in this very difficult time.

 

By this, I am reminded of the lyrics of Bill Withers classic: Lean On Me.  Part of the lyrics says that sometimes in our lives, we all have pain. We all have sorrows. Lean on me when you are strong. Just call on me brother when you need a hand.

 

If you need someone to talk to or send you some comforting words, don’t hesitate to send me a message and I would do my very best to get back to you with healing words.

 

You can also take comfort from reading this beautiful poem. Just keep reading it through the tears and you will feel a lot better.

 

Here it is:

Those We Love- Arthur Unknown

Those we love don’t go away

They walk beside us every day.

Unseen, unheard but always near.

Still loved,, still missed and very dear.

 

 

Do This Before You Write Your Eulogy For Your Wife

 

First and foremost, you should set your writing goals and stick with them to make the writing process much easier since it can be very challenging to think straight when you are grieving someone who meant the world to you.

 

So, start by writing down the kind of eulogy speech you would like to deliver by asking yourself these basic questions:

 

  • Do you simply want to tell a story of how you met your wife?
  • Do you wish to highlight what made her a very special wife and mom?
  • Would you like to make a very heartfelt eulogy speech that encompasses your love story and her remarkable attributes as a person, wife and mom of your children?

 

In my opinion, it’s best to stick with the last speaking style considering how impactful it can be. Well, that is the favorite of most husbands bidding their wives goodbye.

 

What you might also want to consider next is the length of your wife’s eulogy speech. With that in mind, you might want to know this: how long should my eulogy tribute for my wife be?

 

Well, that depends on these factors:

  • How long you have been asked to speak: stick to the time and don’t go overboard because it’s a very sensitive time for her family.
  • How long you wish to speak: don’t make it very long unless you are the only speaking at her funeral or memorial service.

 

A note about the duration of your eulogy: I have written both short and long tributes before and both worked for my clients.

 

Once, I wrote a eulogy for a man who had been married for 50 years.

I thought he wanted to deliver a long tribute considering how long they had been married. But, he asked me to condense his funeral tribute to just two pages.

 

Another person had been married for only a few years, but gave me lots of details which resulted in a very long presentation.  

 

Seen the difference?

 

On the whole, you should write your eulogy in a way that properly honors your precious wife in a very special way.

 

Now, would you like to do a short or long tribute? You have to decide on that. Don’t go with the flow. Be the flow.

 

Having said that, let’s look at how to put your thoughts and ideas together to form a deeply meaningful eulogy speech for your wife that will honor and bless the memory of your life.

 

This is….

 

How To Write A Eulogy For Your Wife

 

Most husbands have amazing stories about their wives. But, they start on a wrong note and it makes the writing process even more stressful.

 

Here’s the biggest mistake I see people make all the time. They have several memories of what to say and what not to say. But they find it so difficult to distill a lifetime of memories and shared experiences into a very moving piece.

 

Not sure where to start or what to do next, they look up some eulogy speech for wife examples online and just modify it a bit to suit their writing needs.

 

Writing a heartfelt tribute for your wife is not like a homework assignment. It rather involves pouring your whole heart, mind, and soul into creating a story that will bless and honor the memory of your wife.

 

In addition to that, it forms an integral part of the grieving and healing process and should be treated as such.

 

So, before you even think of writing your eulogy speech for your beloved wife and mother of the children, you should start with the end in mind.

What do you mean by that?  Let me put it this way. Memories are the heart and soul of great eulogies. Hence, you have to take a deep breath and sit back in your chair. Then, recollect all those great moments you have spent together.

 

As you do that, just put down the good and bad (challenging) memories and let your sad tears stream down your checks.

 

If you are struggling to recollect all those fine moments, then I recommend you do this to come up with all those great memories quickly.

  • Scan through her old and new photos. Look for photos of you and your wife and the children. As you pore through those pictures, ask yourself these simple questions:

(a)What does each picture bring to mind? Write down every memory you can think and pick your favorite anecdotes.

(b) Does this picture depict her character traits? If so, what aspect of her character does it portray?

  • Why not talk to others who know a little bit about your spouse? For example, your own children can tell you great stories about their mom.

 

If for some reason, you didn’t have children of your own, you may ask her family to share happy memories. The memories you highlight in your tribute doesn’t always have to be your love stories.

 

For instance, if you are mentioning how kind she was, you can include a story or two about how she left her job to care for her sick mom who had cancer.

 

Don’t you think her mom (if alive) would thank you for mentioning this in your tribute?

  • Do you have a journal that chronicled your relationship with her? Leaf through that diary and put down very fond memories about when you met, how you met, when you got married, the high and low moments, wedding anniversaries, birthday celebrations, and so on.

 

  • Letters and love notes exchanged, birthday and valentine day cards you received from each other, can be a treasure chest of memories. So, look for those materials and read through them one more and write down any stuff you think you can weave into your funeral tribute for your beloved wife.

 

  • Have you, her family or friends created her memorial tribute slideshow yet? Go get it and watch it a couple of times to help you recall some really wonderful, positive memories about your spouse and your time together.

 

Here’s something to get things going: Have you put down a few memories about her? What really stood out for you? Do those anecdotes capture her true spirit and personality?

Ok….we will be using those anecdotes when we get to the part about putting your stories together beautiful. We will get to that in a moment.

 

It can be very tempting to try to put those thoughts together after collecting all those precious memories. Unless you are a very skilled wordsmith, you are going to struggle to make sense of it all.

 

To make sure that your story comes together perfectly, you first have to get a fair idea of how funeral tributes are delivered.

 

This is what you can do about this now. Go to youtube.com and insert your preferred keyword. In this case, it would be eulogy speech for wife, funeral speech for wife, and so on.

 

When you do that, video clips like these ones would pop up. You may watch a couple of them and write down ideas you think can help make your tribute for your life very touching and inspiring.

Eulogy Speech Example/Template For Your Wife

 

Thank you so much for coming to celebrate the life and mourn the loss of my precious wife, Melissa.

 

I once read this beautiful quote about the beauty of love in all its forms. It says that the greatest thing in life is to love and be loved in return. That applies to the intense love Cathy and I had for each other. She made me feel loved, safe and taken care of through thick and thin.

 

Although death has put out that bright light in her heart and I have to face this word without her by side, the memories we’ve made is a priceless treasure that will always be tucked safely in my heart because her love is stronger than death.

How to write tribute speech for your wife

No matter how hard death tries, it still can’t stop me from loving her. Melissa was my partner in life for 39 years. She was my best friend, my cheerleader, my advisor, my one true love, and my other half.

 

For those of you who don’t know, I met her a year after my divorce, we were both at a high school football game. Who would have thought that my soul mate would be sitting on the bleachers that night?

 

Our first date was at a burger king. We sat in a corner booth and talked and talked. The hours flew by and I knew something special was happening, as did she.

 

After that we were pretty inseparable. We saw each other daily and still had more to say so we talked on the phone. I couldn’t get enough of her. People used to say that we wouldn’t last. But we proved them wrong.

 

Melissa was not a person to shrug off a challenge, and I wanted to prove to the world that our love was real and true and would stand up to the test of time. I guess I can stand here today and say Mission Accomplished, but I still don’t want to believe that she’s gone. I feel this huge crater in my chest where my heart used to be.

 

 

Melissa took it with her to Heaven, and one day when we meet again, she will give it back to me.

 

We took care of each other. She was amazing when I had 6 surgeries starting in August of 2015. She was always there for me, never saying “wait, I didn’t sign up for this!”

 

And when I was first invited to share my PhD argument at Harvard, she was so excited for me, and remained so every semester when they invited me back.

 

The funny thing is, I couldn’t have gotten that achievement at the ripe old age of 63 without her support, her sacrifice, and her commitment. Everything I’ve done is because of her, and for her.

 

 

Then, when it was her turn, we took on her 12- month battle together. I was her caregiver and never missed a single day spending time with her, taking her to her labs, watching her ring the bell after she went into remission in February of 2020, and the following May when we were told

it was back, we held one another and cried

together.

 

 

She was so brave and had to endure so much. If I could have taken that cancer away, I would have died in her place with a smile, knowing I was leaving behind a better world because it still had her in it. Her determination for that entire time cemented her as my hero.

 

She was an absolutely remarkable woman who never had to put on airs or pretend to be

anything but herself. She didn’t require, nor did she want diamonds, furs, elaborate gifts or trips.

 

 

She loved our simple life, sitting on a park

bench holding hands, or going to subway or an Italian restaurant for dinner. All she wanted, all she required was my time. I was amazed by her, and still think that she was perfect in every way.

 

 

She was my queen, and I treated her as such. I cherished each and every day that God gifted me with her.

 

She was also an amazing mom. I can’t even

imagine what Alden, Naomi, and Mike are

going through. I know how heartbroken and

devastated I feel, but for them…they have so

many milestones ahead in their lives that they have to celebrate now without Mom.

 

Alden, won’t have her to mentor her throughout her life’s journey. Naomi will no longer be able cozy up with her on the couch.

 

And Mike will miss her always being there whenever he calls or texts, faithfully. But I’m sure she’ll be watching her “Listle B” which is what she called Adam,

“Peanut” which was Mike’s nickname, and her precious “Squash” or Alden  from above and celebrating every moment of their lives.

 

Alden, Naomi, and Mike, you are not alone. Mom’s guiding presence will always be with us. Never, ever forget that.

 

Melissa was a hard worker who was very loyal to her employer. She was also devoted to Christ and often on breaks she would take her Bible out to her car or in the breakroom and sit and read it.

 

I’m very grateful that we were both saved. She loved to journal, do calligraphy, and create her arts and crafts.

 

Most importantly, she loved spending time with me and our kids. She enjoyed taking us and touring all over the state of NC and participating in festivals, gold/jewel mining, trying new foods, visiting parks, and places of interest such as a Whipple wheel exhibit in Wilson NC.

 

She also enjoyed riding her motorcycle while listening to her worship music and riding the scenic Blue Ridge Parkway or the back roads of NC/VA.

 

Melissa was also one of those people that

attracted others to her. She drew them in, and once they became her friend, she was a friend for life. She exuded honor, faithfulness, integrity, and trustworthiness.

 

In case I haven’t made it clear yet, I loved being married to Melissa. She brought joy to my life.

 

She completed me. She accepted me as I was, and that was enough for her. I will spend the rest of my days thanking God for every minute I had her, and waiting for the day I will see her again.

 

You know, right before they took her out of the home to respite care in August, she told me that a few days before, she awoke and Jesus was standing at her feet with His hands down by his side.

 

She said He didn’t say a word nor made

any motions. He simply stared at her and she said He faded away like the fog burning off in the morning sun.

 

I told her that I thought He was coming to take her home. Sure enough, about 4 weeks later, The Lord did just that. Without a doubt she is in the arms of her Lord today and that’s our consolation.

 

I would like to end with a verse of scripture.

The Bible says in Genesis 2:24 ‘’Therefore a

man shall leave his father and his mother and hold fast to his wife, and they shall become one flesh

 

That is so true for Melissa and I. Our love story was like playing a beautiful symphony. We were a perfect duet. Our family chain is

currently broken, but soon, it will be linked

again. Someday, on golden shores where we

would shed no tears about the loss of our loved ones. I will run to her and she will smile at me.

 

We will once again be together, but this time for eternity. Until that day my love, dance with angels, walk with the Lord, and rest in perfect peace.

 

That is a touching tribute for a religious woman and Christian by a loving father and husband.

 

Did that move you to tears? Imagine writing something like that for your wife? Your family and hers will be grateful for honoring her in such a befitting manner.

 

But, how do you go from staring aimlessly at the computer screen to filling it with powerful words that honor the memory of your wife in a very special way?

 

Start by breaking down any eulogy speech examples into three main parts:

  • Introduction
  • Body or content
  • Conclusion

 

Once you have created that structure for your eulogy, the writing process will be much easier and take a shape of its own.

 

Eulogy for wife speech templates and examples

 

Let’s Look At How To Write The Introduction

 

To give you an idea, this is an excerpt of the above introduction to help us find the right words.

‘’ Thank you so much for coming to celebrate the life and mourn the loss of my precious wife, Melissa. ‘’

 

Your introductory remarks are the most essential part of your tribute, so you have to start well.

How do you start well?  Here are five practical steps to start on a very impactful note. Let’s see exactly how it works.

 

First, start by thanking everyone for coming. You may take it a step further by thanking certain personalities. People like:

  • The deceased’s mom and dad and her entire family for their help and support in this very difficult time
  • Your own family
  • Her friends and yours
  • Her doctor and other medical staff

 

 

Question: Who would like to express gratitude to for their support?  Do a little brainstorming and write down names of individuals who have been of tremendous prior and after her death?  

 

That simple writing task can get your creative juices flowing.

 

Second, you can start off by sharing how you feel about her loss.

Here’s an example for a young couple (from a man to a dead wife):

 

 

Ever since we got married five (5) years ago, I have always dreamed of spending the rest of my life through thick and thin.

 

But, my heart is broken into a million pieces and it still feels like she carried my body, soul, and spirit with her into the grave because love was meant to be forever.  

 

How do you heal a broken heart? I need my wife to tell me. We were totally inseparable and family and friends noticed this and called us ‘’two bars of chocolate stuck in the mouth...''

 

 

Third, start with a touching quote, poem, wise saying, her favorite saying, or bible verse if you are a Christian. Let’s use this quote to come up with our opening lines.

 

“The greatest thing you'll ever learn is to love and be loved in return”

― Moulin Rouge

 

Here you go:

I once read a quote that says that the greatest thing you’ll ever learn is to love and be loved in return. Well, Margaret was the best thing to have ever happened to me and I found my life’s greatest gift in her.

 

Isn’t that sweet and powerful? Do you want to start your introduction with a quote?

 

Fourth, it takes a strong man to start his funeral tribute with a song. But, if you can do it, please do it by all means if you really want it to be the most memorable tribute ever.





You may take inspiration from Whitney Houston’s: ‘’Where Do Broken Hearts  Go? ''

 

 

Imagine how deeply meaningful and eloquent your speech will be if you make it a parody of that popular song. You may re-write aspects of it this way and sing it:

 

I know it's been some time
But there's something on my mind

You see, I haven't been the same
Since that cold November(change it to the day she died) day
You said goodbye to me unexpectedly
But all I found was an empty place in my heart
And the only things I learned
Is that I need you desperately

 

So here I am
And can you please tell me, oh

 

Where do broken hearts go?
Can they find their way home
Back to the open arms of my
Of a love that's waiting at the other side?

 

How would you feel if you heard someone begin their tribute with those lyrics?Let’s move to another thing.

 

Fifth, you can simply start with a story of how and when you met your departed wife.  That’s so easy to do, right? If you need an example, here’s one:

 

I met Heather in 1962 at a Catholic church

dance. It was a barn dance, and it was a roaring

20’s theme. I was there with a group of Navy

men and we were sitting on one side of the barn

while the ladies all sat on the other. No one was

actually dancing yet….

 

 

How To Write The Body Or Speech Outline Of Your Eulogy

 

 

The second part of the presentation is the body or content structure of your speech. It comes after the introduction and is a continuation of the ideas raised in the introduction.

 

With so many happy and sad memories tucked in your mind, it can be pretty hard to know where to start.

 

If you are caught in this dilemma, you can follow this simple plan so you can easily organize your thoughts.

 

This is what I want you to do now. Grab a sheet of paper and provide answers to the following questions:

  • What were early years of your marriage like?
  • What were your collective achievements as a couple?
  • How did she impact your life and the family and others she ever met?
  • How did she make your house a home?
  • What are the most memorable moments you have had together?
  • What are her personal attributes? Was she giving? Loving? Caring? Do you have an anecdote that highlights those character traits?

 

Eulogy speech for wife examples

 

Question: What you written down answers to those questions. You may go back to read the example above and let it inspire you to piece together a beautiful story about your wife. 

 

The first draft can be a real mess. So don’t be discouraged if your first attempt doesn’t look great. Get back to it another time and get rid of the excesses until your writing sparkles with the right emotions.

 

 

How To End Your Eulogy For Your Spouse

 

The conclusion comes after the body.  Let’s look at a few ways of bringing closure to your tribute.

 

You can end by sharing her wishes with the mourners. I once wrote a tribute where the deceased remarked that she didn’t want everyone to be sad when she passed. Here’s how I captured her last wishes.

 

While we mourning her loss, let us be thankful for her presence in our lives. Before she passed, she told me to tell you not to be too sad because that’s not what she wants. She said we should laugh at her jokes and share good stories about all those wonderful moments.

 

 

Is that something you would like to do? Your answer should be based on your wife’s last wishes.

 

You may conclude with a poem by Ryann. Here’s a perfect example:

 

When I try to take a break
and relax in my busy life,
my heart, it does ache,
and all I think is how I miss my wife.

It hurts me so bad,
all this pain inside,
thinking of the love we had
and the tears I have cried.

I think of the places that we went to,
how I love you with all my heart
and all the things we didn't get to do,
but most of all how we have been torn apart.

I miss you so
and love you still.
I did not want to let you go,
but I tell myself it was God's will.

Every day I see things you've done.
It is lonely without you here.
I try to be strong for our wonderful son,


 

If you have nothing to say, just thank everyone for coming and reassure your children that you will stand by them at all times.

 

Share with your family and friends how and why you will miss her.

Just take a moment to imagine how you would you feel if you pluck up the courage and speak with confidence and poise?

 

Again, picture yourself being showered with very sincere praises and compliments from family and friends for being the best speaker of the night. Wouldn’t you like it?

 

Also, envision being hugged and kissed by your son for having made him proud with your mother of the groom speech.  Wouldn’t that leave you with a great feeling of joy, pride, and excitement? It sure will and you will thank me if you ever get back to me when the wedding bells stop ringing.

 

All these and more are the possibilities a really good mother of the groom wedding speech gives.  

 

What I am going to share with you isn’t some theory stuff or something I came up with on the fly.

 

It’s based on my personal working experience as a mother of the groom speech wedding speech writer.

 

So, please grab your pen, journal, notepad or open up your word document and put away anything that will most likely interfere with doing things right.

 

This Can Help You Deliver Your Mother Of The Groom Speech With Ease

Before I let you in on all the tips and examples, there’s one thing I would like bring to your attention as it can hinder you from achieving your wedding speaking dreams.

 

I will talk about it in the next chapter and outline steps to deal with it so you can string your thoughts together beautifully and deliver your speech with ease.

 

What I am talking about is something that happens to everyone, including the best public speakers out there. 

 

Do you feel a bit faint when imagine how your mother of the groom speech will go? It’s perfectly normal to feel that way prior to doing anything in life. So, don’t be alarmed if you start to panic.

 

This illustration can clear things up for you. Let’s say you are still learning how to drive a car. Your spouse thinking you have mastered turning the wheel asks if it would be possible to take the family out on a road trip.

 

Wanting to show off your newly-acquired driving skills, you agree to do that.  As the day draws closer and close, you start to feel a little nervous and anxious as you are not too sure how it will go. I am sure you won’t have very sound sleep if you are a very confident driver.

 

Does that have any correlation to your mother of the groom speech? Yes and yes to that.

 

Here’s the thing about public speaking anxiety: We always get a little timid if we have little or no experience in whatever we set our focus on.  Nonetheless, everyone has to start from somewhere to get to somewhere.

 

By this, I am reminded of the Chinese proverb that says that the journey of a thousand miles begin with a single step.  Similarly, writing your mother of the groom should start with a single step. Unfortunately, most mothers ended up taking triple steps by quickly putting their thoughts together after leafing through couple of mother of the groom speech templates.

 

The end result is a horrible patchwork of disjointed ideas which makes them vulnerable to apprehension. Thus, concluding that it’s better to say something than not to say anything at all.

 

When it comes to writing a lovely mother of the groom speech, that journey of a thousand mile starts from the mind and ends in the mind since it’s the battlefield of life.

 

Let me ask you these simple questions (just be truthful with yourself):

 

  • How did you feel when your son called out of the blue and asked you to deliver your mother of the groom speech? Did you feel jittery? I attribute this mood to the fear of failure. Most moms are so afraid of the unknown and so afraid of failing at things in which they have limited or no expertise, which is why you feel a bit frazzled. Don’t worry; I am going to help you overcome this soon.

 

  • Are you a naturally confident person? The tips I will be outlining shortly can help boost your self-confidence.

 

  • Do you have past public speaking failures?

 

  • Have you ever found yourself writing a speech only to run of ideas?

 

These and other issues are the underlying causes of your nervousness. Feeling nervousness is not always a bad thing. It happens to everyone.

I remember like it was yesterday when my heart thumped with fear when I was asked to deliver a tribute at grandma’s funeral. But, I felt a bit better once I started speaking.

 

So, you don’t have to feel down or low about those feeling of uneasiness.  Your nerves can rather help you meet this challenge and motivate you to reach your speaking goals.

 

But, how?  Let go off the past and keep imagining your family and friends smiling and applauding you for a great done as you deliver your wedding tribute for your son

 

As you keep imagining this positive outcome in your head, it will keep fears at bay and help build up your self-esteem and confidence.

 

 

This is what I want you to do right now to calm your nerves: Take lots of deep breaths and let out a huge sigh to relax your body and mind.  Then, start to imagine good things happening to you as you deliver your mother of the groom speech for your son and daughter before your family and friends.

Don’t do it once. Practice this daily until it gets into your sub-consciousness so that it will be your potent defense mechanism when your mind starts to play tricks on you.

 

Do This And You Will Succeed

 

Do you remember the old saying that if you are not planning to succeed, you are planning to fail?  To succeed at this, you first have to dream it, and then plan it out to make your vision a reality.

 

Having a solid plan in place helps you streamline your thoughts in a coherent manner.  It also helps you craft a structure for your mother of the groom speech.

 

To make ideas flow in logical step, you may follow this simple plan. Start by creating a vision board for your mother of the groom speech.

 

A vision board is simply a projected outcome of how you want your speech to go. For example, you can write any of these words or phrases on your vision board:

 

  • I want my mother of the groom wedding speech to be funny, emotional, and inspirational.
  • I want to simply share stories about my son
  • I want to leave them with moist eyes
  • How do I start and end my mother of the groom speech?

 

Without a clear vision on your speech vision board, it would hard to direct your efforts in ways that satisfy your writing needs. Got the picture? Ok, let’s go on.

 

Those words (your vision for the speech) can be on a poster board, stick-it- notes, a plain paper like an A4 sheet, or on any other material.

 

Then, fasten your vision board to a prominent place in your home.  Not only will this prevent procrastination but also ensure that you work hard to achieve your goals.

 

 

Now, let’s look at …

 

How And Where To Get Ideas For Your Mother Of The Groom Speech

 

A lot of times, good ideas mostly come to the curious mind and the best way to spark your curiosity is by getting your feet wet.

 

You can get your feet by first watching mother of the groom speech video clips. There are so many (best and worst) of such examples out there that it becomes pretty hard to figure out the right videos to watch for guidance and inspiration.

 

To give you a proof, you will find so many videos if you go to youtube.com and insert this broad keyword (mother of the groom speech) into the search box. These results will pop out:

Let me add that you can watch the worst videos if you have some time so you don’t repeat the mistakes those speakers made.

 

Let me ask you this:

  • Did you really watch any of those videos?
  • And did you learn a thing or two?
  • Is there anything in those video clips that struck a chord with you?
  • Would you like to model your mother of the groom speech after those videos?

Writing A Lovely Mother Of The Groom Speech Starts Right Here

 

Wouldn’t it be great if you could write your mother of the groom speech at this point? I wish we could do that. But, you have to go back in time to recall all those great moments you have had with your son and the whole family. This would make the writing process a breeze.

 

You see, memories are the heartbeat of all memorable speeches. Unfortunately, as we grow and age, we often forget about all those precious memories.

 

Sometimes, they are just lying dormant in your mind and you only need something to prop them up to the surface.

 

Since a good speech is a collection of happy memories, I want us to get as many memories as possible down on paper using these well-known methods:

  1. Flip through your old journal/diary (if you have them) and write down his life’s events you would like to use for your mother of the groom speech.
  1. Pore through old family photos and videos and other mementos to rekindle lost memories. As you go through those beloved belongingness and keepsakes, write down what each photo brings to mind and the memory they convey.

 

As an example, you can flip through his childhood photos and ask yourself what they remind you of? You can also scan photos of his teenage years and so on.

 

  1. You don’t have to worry if for some reason, you can’t find his photos or you are really struggling to remember specific details.  Your family members can be a source of tremendous help here.

 

Just talk to his dad, his brothers and sisters, aunts and uncles, grandpa and grandma, and they will be happy to share some really fond memories that can embellish your words beautifully.

 

  1. Family scrapbooks come in handy if you want to recollect very warm memories. So, can letters, notes and cards he sent you on important days like on your birthday, mother’s day, wedding anniversary, and so on.

 

Once, a mom asked to work on her mother of the groom speech. Whilst reviewing her information, I found a very touching letter her son sent when he was on the war front. I felt it might make her mother of the groom speech very heartfelt and I ended up infusing its contents into my draft which made her cry.

 

Here’s an excerpt of it:

 ‘’Fourteen years ago, you sent me heartfelt note. In that poem, you spoke so lovingly of the love we have for each other, the great sacrifices I have made for you and our shared ordeals on the battlefield of life. It really touched my heart and soul. I nearly drowned in my own tears.

 

We have been through thick and thick, but you’ve always stood by me and cared for me. You have been my love, inspiration, cheerleader, and rock. 

All I can say is that you’re an amazing wonder and blessing to all who know you, and many who don’t. Thanks for always making my day bright. Only God knows where I would be with you . I love you so much ’’

 

That can easily pass for a sentimental mother of the groom speech, right? Your guess is as good as mine.

 

Mother of the groom speech templates

 

Here’s a hint for you: After you have captured all those memories on paper, you will find yourself wondering which memory to use and what to discard and that can make the whole experience quite hectic.

 

To make things fairly easy, you can grab a sheet of paper and put down something like this:

  1. Childhood memories---fill in the blanks with the correct info or family photos
  2. Teenage memories---fill in the gaps with the right info or family photos
  • Landmark moments/memories(eg. high school and college graduation, ---fill in the blanks with the right info or family photos

It’s not finished yet. There’s more help on the way…

 

 

Mother Of The Groom Speech Examples And How To Use Them The Right Way

 

If you ask me or any mother of the groom wedding speech writer what the easiest way to get your ideas onto paper is, they are likely to respond with this definitive word:  mother of the groom speech examples/templates.

 

The reason being that well-written mother of the groom speech examples and samples have so many ideas, words and phrases you can borrow and add to yours.  

 

In addition to that, they may be used as models for guidance and inspiration.

 

That being said, I would like us to review this mother of the groom speech example.

 

After that, we will analyze it so that you can figure out how such examples can help you come up with the best mother of the groom speech ever.

 

The first thing to do is to pour heart and mind into reading the example I will be sharing shortly.

 

After that, please grab a pen and notepad and put down anything you wish to add to your presentation. Not verbatim though

Third, this should a word of caution:

Don’t copy it word for word because hundreds of eyeballs are glancing through this example this very minute and you risk being called a copycat if you do.

 

I remember years ago, someone asked me to edit his wedding speech. This person basically copied my examples word for word without even tweaking it a little bit. I think that’s so wrong and you shouldn’t do that.

 

Well, I can’t lay the blame on anyone considering that the overwhelming majority of mothers of the grooms find this rather lazy approach as the easy way out.

 

But, you don’t have to. You don’t want anyone to tell you to the face that you copied that example from the internet. Do you?

 

Just use it to create an original speech that’s entertaining and rich with his personal details.

 

Let’s look at this:

 

Mother Of The Groom Speech Example/ Template

 

Thank you all for joining us today to celebrate the union of two amazing souls, my son Jim and his beautiful bride, Janice.

For those of you who don’t know me, I am Esmile, proud mom of the groom.

 

Today is a day filled with joy, love, and a touch of nostalgia as I look back on the journey that brought us to this moment.

 

It feels like just yesterday that I was in the labor room during the Daytona 500 – yes, you heard that right! I couldn’t have chosen a more thrilling time to go into labor, and your dad, Dan, couldn’t have chosen a more exciting event to want to finish watching before we headed to the hospital.

‘’One more lap’’, he said, and I’m grateful we made it in time to welcome our little racer into the world.

 

From the very beginning, Jim was always an eager and adventurous child. At just 8 months old, he took his first steps, ready to explore the world and conquer it. I can’t tell you how many times he climbed out of his crib, always keeping me on my toes.

 

But those moments were precious, as I saw in him a determination that would shape his future endeavors.

 

Jim had a vivid imagination as a child, and he dreamed of becoming a firefighter or a Ghostbuster – a hero who could save the day.

 

While the Ghostbuster dream might have been a bit creepy, I’m glad he chose the path of a firefighter, selflessly serving his community and protecting others.

 

And let’s not forget his love for the drums – he could really make some noise, but hey, practice makes perfect, right?

 

One thing I always enjoyed was watching Jim play hockey – he had such passion and dedication on the ice. And when he wasn’t playing, I must admit, I couldn’t resist taking his Monte Carlo SS for a spin. It’s a mother’s prerogative, isn’t it?

 

Mother of the groom tips and ideas

 

Of course, Jim’s love for the water was undeniable, as evidenced by his boat ‘’Spot On.’’

 

He earned his captain’s license and became part of the Sea Tow team, making waves in his life and career. But life wasn’t just about boats and hockey for Jim – he had a big heart for his four-legged friends too.

 

 

His Dalmatian, Cash, was like his own child, and their bond was truly heartwarming. I like to believe that Cash is up there with your dad, looking down upon us today with pride and joy as they witness the love you share.

 

 

And speaking of adorable creatures, there was that Houdini-like hamster who managed to escape from its cage time and again.

 

It’s amazing how you both had similar experiences with your loved hamsters, Jenny.

 

Perhaps it was a sign of the adventures you’d share together. Janice, my dear, you have brought so much joy and love into Jim’s life, and I couldn’t be happier that he found someone as special as you.

 

When Jim missed the cutoff date for the fire department test, I was amazed by his determination to pursue his dreams regardless.

 

He became a paramedic and continued to make a difference in people’s lives, just as he will in yours, Janice.

 

I’ve seen the love you both share, and it reminds me of Jim’s favorite movie, Forest Gump. He always says you two are like peas and carrots – a perfect blend of unique personalities.

 

And let’s not forget the adorable mugshot story – a funny reminder of your wilder days, Janice.

 

But hey, we all have our youthful adventures, right?

 

And as a reminder, Jim uses that mug shot as his screensaver. I may have stumbled with a certain text message, but true love like yours can withstand any miscommunication.

 

As you take each step in this new chapter of

your life, I want to leave you with a few words of wisdom. May you continue to communicate openly, supporting each other unselfishly, and always standing side by side, hand in hand.

 

May your love grow deeper with every passing day, and may you find happiness in the little things.

 

So, let’s raise our glasses to Jim and Janice, two remarkable souls embarking on the adventure of a lifetime. May your love be eternal, your hearts full of joy, and your lives filled with beautiful memories. Cheers!

 

M6 (1)

 

 

I hope you took away some great ideas from that example. I did. But, I want us to look at the structure of the mother of the groom speech since every word you will ever write center around it. Besides, it will help keep your thoughts on track.

 

If you did analyze the speech carefully, you will realize that the mother of the groom speech is organized around these bullet points:

 

  • Introduction
  • Body
  • Conclusion

 

First, let’s look at the first bullet point: introduction or what is usually referred to as the opening remarks. 

 

It’s like the hook and bait of on a fishing rod. I am saying this because its job is to grab the attention of your family and friends and to draw them in to the body of your speech.

 

These are the core components of the introduction:

 

Greetings: Here’s an example:

I want to begin by saying what an incredible honor it is to stand before you all as the mother of the groom. Today is a day that has been long awaited, not just by my son Colin and his beautiful bride Nataly, but by our entire family. Your presence is deeply appreciated.

 

  • Short-self introductory remarks

This is another example:  For those of you who don’t know me, I am Mitchelle, proud mom of the groom.

 

  • Thank the guests for coming

Here, you can thank the guests, the bride’s parents, your siblings, and your mom and dad for helping you take care of your son.

 

Please grab your notes and provide a list of people you want to express gratitude to and mention why you are thanking them.  This example can give you clearer idea:

‘’ Mom was like a second mom to Mark. She helped me with everything. She did everything in her power to make life easier for me and reduce my stress during my tough times. She would keep him at her house when I was sick, while also making meals for me. She would feed him his favorite meals, brush his hair, read to him,  and plant a flower garden with him. Her love was unconditional and absolute. ‘

 

The other aspect of the introduction is the hook. The hook is that part of your speech that gives the wedding attendees a compelling reason to listen to you.

 

If you don’t do it well, they will conclude that your mother of the groom speech is going to be as boring as spending a very long time in quarantine.  

 

 

Here are a few ways to make yours one to remember.

  • You can start with a little story about how and when he was born if it has a dramatic twist. To illustrate, Michelle was expecting to have a daughter and the doctors said she was carrying her boy.

 

As it turned out, she got a girl when her water broke.  Such stories make really good mother of the groom speeches what they are. What’s your own unique story? Please write it down and share with the wedding guests.

 

  • Start by sharing a small story about who your son was when he was just a little boy. To show what I mean, this is how one person did it.

 

‘’I was always very thankful that I could be there for my son. My own father passed away when I was just six(6) years old, and that was difficult. So, when her mom was pregnant…’’

 

Don’t you think that would make everyone pay attention? You bet.

 

  • To strike the right emotional tone, you can use mother of the groom speech quotes or one-liners. The following mother-son quotes can help you do just that.
  • Sons are the anchors of a mother’s life.” – Sophocles, Greek playwright
  • Sons are the anchors of a mother’s life.” – Sophocles, Greek playwright
  • “There is an enduring tenderness in the love of a mother to a son that transcends all other affections of the heart.” – Washington Irving, author
  • Be strong out there, my son. Look for the love and kindness in others. Forgive yourself when you make mistakes, and enjoy the journey.” – Kirsten Wreggitt, author
  • “To be a mother of a son is one of the most important things you can do to change the world. Raise them to respect women, raise them to stand up for others, raise them to be kind.” – Shannon L. Alder, author

 

Let’s move on to the next pillar: the body

 

The body is the outline of the speech. It’s the flesh and bone of your mother of the groom speech.

 

But, here’s what I found quite disturbing. The overwhelming majority have beautiful stories about their sons, but miss the mark when condensing years of memories to crafting mother of the groom speeches.

 

The logical step is to write down the really good memories you would like to use. So, let’s down to it by first answering these questions:

 

  • What was it like when your son was growing up?
  • What are his great attributes or character traits? Is he very loving and giving?
  • When did he first mention the bride?
  • How has he become a better person since meeting the bride?

 

Here’s a little assignment to help you script the body.

Do you have answers to those questions? Ok…Read through the example once again for inspiration and use those answers to write a first draft. You may not like it on your first try.

 

Funny mother of the groom speech

 

But take comfort in Ernest Hemmingway’s quote: ‘’ The first draft of anything is shit’’

 

All you have to do is to go back and refine that messy draft until you say to yourself ‘’it looks great. I think I am good to go!’’

 

Do this before you think of popping the champagne. Let's look at this next thing:

What You Should Say About Your Daughter-In-Law

 

Don’t forget to write a few things about the bride. Here are some ideas to help you write something about her.

 

  • Write down how you felt when you first met her…don’t comment negatively even if you don’t like her
  • Mention how she complements your son or why they are a perfect match.
  • Mention how their relationship has blossomed over the years. For instance:

‘’They were both building and taking on challenges for something great, and I watched as they formed a friendship and love for each other that mothers always want to see for their sons. I appreciate you for handling my Rob like gold.’’

 

 

Now, you can pop your champagne.

 

Let’s look at the conclusion: Here’s an excerpt from the above template

‘’ May your love grow deeper with every passing day, and may you find happiness in the little things. So, let’s raise our glasses to Jim and Janice, two remarkable souls embarking on the adventure of a lifetime. Cheers! ‘’

 

On the face of it, this looks like something anyone can do with remarkable ease. It’s a rather ordinary way of wrapping up because we are used to hearing that said over and over again.

 

But, you can do much more than that with these tried and tested methods:

 

The Best Is Yet To Be

On your joyful wedding day,
You begin a brand new life.


You'll share life's joy and pleasure;
You'll have plenty of that, it's true.

But love is the real treasure
For you both .

And if life hands you challenges,
As it does to one and all,
Your love will hold you steady
And never let you fall.

Your wedding day is full of joy;
Tomorrow you cannot see.
But one thing's sure for the two of you:
The best is yet to be.

Don’t Let This Sabotage Your Father Of The Groom Speech…Do This Instead

 

Before we look at how to pour your whole body, heart and soul into writing an amazing father of the groom speech, I feel it’s very necessary, though, at this point to address an issue that afflicts almost every father of the groom prior to speaking about their son’s wedding day. You have to know this, so, please don’t skip it over.

 

 

How did you feel when your son phoned you and asked you to deliver a few remarks at his wedding? Did your heart miss lots of beats? Did you feel a cold shiver down your spine? Or did you experience a sudden spike in your blood pressure?

 

 

If you experience any of those symptoms or more, then you have probably made these remarks before:

  • I hate being in the public eye…
  • I don’t have a natural aptitude for string words together like a master storyteller.  Ok, I know what you are thinking.

 

 

Guess what? You are not alone. We (including world famous speakers) have all been there. When most father’s find themselves in this sticky situation, they tend to overthink it. They lose sleep about what to say and what not to say without even preparing for the task ahead.

 

 

Some, others, simply wing it thinking that they know their sons very well to come up with great stories on the fly.  Not a bad idea if you are a great storyteller.

 

Tips and ideas for father of the groom speech

 

I have some fathers’ use this clever approach and I think it’s a great way to forge a strong bond with the wedding crowd if you are a naturally talented speaker. Such presentations are not only succinct and sweet but it comes from the heart.  And that’s something I wish all fathers do.But, as you know, not so many fathers have a way with words.

 

 

This is what some fathers too and I think it’s the root cause of anxiety, tension, and nervousness. Due to family and work demands, some fathers put it off only to realize a few days before the wedding they don’t have a father of the groom speech in hand.  Thus, settling for an ordinary speech.

 

 

Your son doesn’t deserve that, right? When it comes to writing a father of the groom speech, it’s more like a marathon and not a sprint. It often takes lots of preparation, practice and self-belief to build up your confidence and self-esteem.

So, let’s take this writing exercise like running a marathon and you will achieve your writing goals.

 

 

This is what I want you to do right away if you are still feeling anxious. Amit Ray said it best that if you want to conquer the anxiety of life, live in the moment, and live in the breath.

 

 

So, please take a deep breath in and out to relax your nerves.  If you take Amit’s prescription to heart, you will be taking slow but sure steps towards conquering your anxieties and also delivering a great father of the groom wedding speech with clarity and poise.

 

 

On the flip side, being nervous is actually a telltale sign of accumulated fears. Ok, I will explain. A friend of mine had an accident while learning to drive. He lost control of the wheels and almost killed himself and another person. He has since lost his zeal for car driving.

 

 

Now, most of us are like my friend.  We have had series of speaking setbacks that we have repeatedly said to ourselves and others within our circles that it’s not our strong suit.

 

Djdjdj

 

Sure, you might not have that the aptitude. I get it. But, you can dust yourself off and seize this once-in-a-life time moment to re-write your story and make your son proud with a touching father of the groom speech.

 

That takes us to the next chapter. I guess that’s your favorite part of this whole thing we are looking at. Ok, let’s look at it.

 

 

How To Quickly And Easily Write Your Father Of The Groom Speech

 

Your father of the groom speech should start and end with this: proper planning.

As the old age goes, proper planning prevents poor performance. By inference, proper planning leads to outstanding accomplishments.

 

 

From writing and reviewing hundreds of father of the groom speeches for my clients and others, I have seen most fathers make this classic mistake: they find some father of the groom speech examples and tweak it a bit to suit personal needs.

 

When I first started out as a father of the groom speech writer back in the day, I used to make that mistake too. Thank God, I am now an accomplished father of the groom speechwriter. But, it wasn’t always easy.

 

 

In the past, I didn’t know what I gotten myself into as I read several father of the groom speech templates and just modeled my speech after them. That gave me a bad rap and I run into several problems. As a result, I was labeled as a ‘’copy and paste guy. ‘’  Isn’t that sad?

 

 

Unfortunately, the vast majority of fathers seem to dabble in this unhealthy practice as well. Don’t get wrong. I am not saying that, that lazy approach is entirely wrong per se. There’s a time and place for that if you harness it properly for your good.

 

Father of the groom speech samples

 

If all you ever do is to start writing down your father of the groom speech after studying a few father of the groom speech samples, you will end up with a not so great wedding speech for your son and daughter-in-law.

 

 

Let’s get back to what we were previously discussing. Do you still remember what I told you about proper planning being the secret to your success in the last four paragraphs?

 

 

Here’s the most important part. You first have to have to lay the foundation for your father of the groom speech in your mind considering that the battles of life are won in your mind’s eye.

 

 

So, this is what I recommend you do (I do that all the time before I put any speech together) right away.

 

 

The first thing to do is to create the desired and ideal outcome of your speech in your mind.  Here are some questions to help you do just that.

  • What’s it that you want to say about your son?
  • How do you want your son to feel after listening to your words?
  • What do you want to say about the groom and bride?
  • How do you want your family and friends to feel after you are done? Teary-eyed? Happy? The best father of the groom speeches is often a harmonious blend of happy and sentimental emotions.
  • What’s my personality like? And what kind of father of groom speech (more on that later) does my personality type allow me to do?

 

 

One more hint:  This mental exercise can set you up for success if you write everything down as if you have already achieved your pre-performance goals. Now that you have a clear direction on where this is going, let’s talk about some specifics of how to get there.

 

 

We can only do that by looking at how to build momentum for your father of the groom speech. This can only be possible if we first figure out how and where to get proven ideas for your toast.

 

 

The best way to inspire and create momentum as a father of the groom as you move forward with your speech is to ensure you are headed in the right direction. 

 

 

I like to liken this to a chef who is preparing a sumptuous meal fit for a king. He can only deliver a finger-licking meal if he’s in the right frame of mind and has all the right ingredients in the right amount.

 

 

Similarly, you can only deliver a really good father of the groom speech if you have right tools to work with. But, most importantly, you need to put yourself in a focused and calm mood.

 

 

To do that, you have to go to youtube.com and insert the search bar ‘’father of the groom speech’’ and other variants of that keywords. As you do, several videos will pop up like this:

Father of the groom speech templates and examples

 

Of course, you can’t sift through all of them due to time constraints. Besides, not all of them are that good.

 

 

So, let’s go back to what I told you about creating an ideal outcome in your mind at the start of this piece. Do you still remember that? Ok, good. So, for example, if you are fun to be around, then you can probably do a funny father of the groom speech.

 

 

In this case, you can add that keyword into the search bar and watch a video like this to get you in the mood:

 



Again, if you are a very expressive person or have a knack for churning out great stories, you can watch a storytelling speech like this one to put you in the mood as well.

 



If you are someone who wears your heart on your sleeves, then you can look for a touching or sentimental father of the groom speech on that same platform. Here’s one I found for you from that domain to help put you in the mood.

 



Do you have an idea of what I mean by delivering a speech based on who you are? And did you notice how I kept repeating this phrase: ‘’put you in the mood’’

 

Let’s see exactly how it works. Putting yourself in the mood simply means putting one step forward if you have never made a speech your whole lifetime.

 

 

It also gives you a fair idea of how such speeches are made. What’s more, you can find ideas and tips you can work into your father of the groom wedding speech.

 

 

This is something you can do right now to get your momentum going: Scroll up the page to watch a father of the groom speech video clip.  Then, put down in your journal or open up your document and type or write the kind of speech you would like to deliver. Will you do something funny, heartfelt, or narrative? That’s not all there is to it anyway.

 

 

You can do something poetic or use my favorite style: sing-song father of the groom speech.  Let’s look at another example:

 

 

If you have a creative streak, you can do bits and pieces of each style to make your father of the groom speech unique and memorable. Wouldn’t you love it?

 

How To Get Content Ideas For Your Father Of The Groom Speech

Next, let’s look at how and where to get content ideas for your father of the groom speech as that will form the basis for the content material.

Now, let’s look at where to get ideas for your speech.

 

 

Can you guess where those ideas are? They are all lying dormant in your mind. Fond memories of when your son was born, to when he was a little, to when he was growing, to his engagement can help you come up with great ideas for your father of the groom speech.

 

 

Well, if you don’t have a razor-sharp memory and have forgotten some very precious moments, then you can do this simple exercise to bring them back instantly.

 

 

It is often said that you shouldn’t put off until tomorrow what you can do today. Drawing inspiration from this quote, let’s do this now since it can help you to build and maintain your confidence as a ‘’father of the groom speech writer’’ Please, don’t put it off until another time.

 

 

First, they say a picture is worth a thousand words and I think family pictures tell a story. So, grab your old family photos (vacation, graduation, birthday, and so on ) and recent ones to help you remember all those great moments you have had with your son growing up.

 

 

Second, if you have a scrap book you can flip through it to rekindle those treasured memories.

 

 

Third, you can dig up letters or notes or emails for some reflection. Still on that, you can look for greeting cards he sent over on birthdays, father’s day, thanksgiving, Easter and Christmas Holidays.

 

 

Here’s a hint:

Go through those photos to rekindle lost memories and put down stories those pictures bring to mind. They should be memories you would like to highlight in your father of the groom speech.

 

 

Letters and the other stuff aren’t meant for reminiscing on past events alone but for also helping you recall who he was and what he stood for.

What to say to your son at his wedding

 

For example, if your son Jimmy wrote you a touching letter expressing his love and admiration on father’s day, you can use portions of that letter to talk about his loving and caring personality.  I did this once for a mom and she loved every bit of it.

 

To illustrate, this is what I carved out of a long letter she sent over:

 

Daniel, I am so proud of you and how far you’ve come down the road of life. You have achieved a whole lot not only for yourself, but your family and in service of our country.

I remember when you were deployed to serve in Iraq the second time, we missed you so so badly and out of the blue, in January of 2010, you sent me a heartfelt poem.

 

In that poem, you spoke so lovingly of the love we have for each other, the great sacrifices I have made for you and our shared ordeals on the battlefield of life. It really touched my heart and soul. I nearly drowned in my own tears.

 

 

Here are a few questions to ask yourself as you review those pictures, letters, and notes.

  • What does this picture remind me about? Please write down your answers
  • Do I really want to use the stories that go with the pictures? Write down a yes or no to that.
  • Do you in anyway want to enhance your father of the groom speech with any of those photos? For example, you can use them as visual aids if you are doing a video presentation about your son.

 

Four

 

Why do you need all of that? By doing this, you can vary your speaking style so you don’t sound like one of those boring guys!

 

 

After you have done all that, you then launch into the deep by figuring out how to tie the thoughts and ideas you have already written down in response to the above questions into a very touching father of the groom speech.

 

 

Let me say that if you are not very gifted with words, it can be hard to know where and how to start. If you don’t know how to get around it, you will end up with a rather incoherent speech.

 

 

To make the writing process is simple, painless, quick, and very memorable on the wedding day; you have to first study a well-written father of the groom speech example/sample closely and carefully.

 

 

I will share with you such an example. Afterwards, I will analyze it and back aspects of it up with the right examples so you can make sense of it all.

 

As you go about studying the father of the groom speech example, you should reflect on the following questions: 

 

  • Are there aspects of the example you find interesting and fascinating?
  • Is there any way you can slot in the insights you got from reading it into your own writing?
  • Would you like to adapt the same style or you would like to come up with something else?
  • Do I like how it flows from the introduction to the conclusion(I will get to this in a heartbeat)

 

 

Without further ado, here it is:

 

Father Of The Groom Speech Example/ Template

Hello everyone. I’m Mike and I’m Eric’s father. On behalf of his mom Connie and I, we’d like to thank all of you for joining us in this very special celebration.

 

Erik came to us later in life than a lot of parents. So he wasn’t a surprise. He also came on his due date, which is very unusual from what I understand. So his actual birth was not unexpected either.

 

Still, as I was looking at this brand new miracle that had just entered into my life…I couldn’t help but think “I should have seen more movies. It’s going to be a long time before I get to see an entire movie, isn’t it?”

 

As a child, Eric was very kind, friendly and loved to entertain us with jokes. He had the mind of an engineer and was curious about everything. He used to look at his nookie as though he were trying to figure it out.

 

 

When he got his first bike with training wheels, he was so enamored with how training wheels worked that he tried to convince a neighbor to put training wheels on his road bike! Erik wanted him to let him know how they worked out.

 

Erik has always been a very good traveler. We took him to London and Paris to visit Connie’s sister when he was a little over a year old. He slept on the plane, didn’t cry, and I think even the other passengers were impressed! He even

climbed to the top of the Eiffel Tower when we got to France. Later, we got to go to Florida and see the launch of Atlantis. That was the final launch of the shuttle program, so that will always be a special memory.

 

He was a whizz at math. I remember a grade school teacher coming up to me and telling me that other children were coming to him for help with a math problem. That continued through college when he was a math tutor. Erik is always willing to help.

 

 

He was also a tremendous athlete in school. I remember this one sniper hockey shot that he made from midcourt.

Later, when I asked why he didn’t pass it on to a teammate he said that the teammate would have hit a pipe and missed the goal. I also have this (show baseball pic) greatest picture of all time. Erik sliding into home in baseball! It was fun watching him grow up and celebrating his accomplishments. It was also fun just to see him play.

 

He was very committed. He would always play for the entire season, even after others dropped out. Once he said that he was going to do something, well then you could take that promise to the bank.

 

He still is that way today. He’s a man of integrity, commitment, and honesty. That is why we are so happy that today he gets to make the ultimate commitment to someone who is also honest, smart, and loving.

 

Eileen, you are the best thing to ever happen to Erik. You are his best friend, his partner in life, and his one true love. We knew, well, we certainly expected, that you would be the one. Erik never brought women home unless he was serious.

 

You struck us as someone he felt more for than anyone right from the start. We are very proud of both of you and I’m so happy that our son has found someone that will bring him joy and happiness.

 

Tommy and Laura, you have raised a beautiful girl, inside and out. You should be so proud of her. And now we are family too! We look forward to more celebrations like this one in the years ahead.

 

Now is the time for advice for the couple. Erik, you need to learn the most important seven words any man can know if they plan to be happily married. Those words are and always will be “yes, dear.” “you were right” and “I’m

sorry.” The old adage, happy wife - happy life did not become an old adage because it isn’t true. It is very, very true!

 

Faith is important too. When you can’t see a solution to a problem when looking around, don’t be afraid to look up. God will be with you

always.

 

Also know that your support group, including me and your mother will always be here to assist, guide, or advise you.

 

I’m going to end with a movie quote. The most important value I have found is your integrity. That is something no one can take away from you. People try and test you hard, but it’s just a test, and sometimes letting go of some thingsthat looks like a really good thing, but compromising your integrity is not worth it in the long run.

 

So what I am saying is be true to your values and give yourself permission to “buzz the tower” every once in a while.

 

The two of you are heading into your greatest adventure, your greatest challenge, and your greatest accomplishment ever. Be kind to one another, and take care of each other.

 

I wish you all the happiness in the world. Let’s raise our glasses to Erik and Eileen! May you live happily ever after!

The Right Way To Use The Father Of The Groom Speech Examples

 

Can you remember what your brilliant English teacher said about the three parts of an essay back in school? Well, it’s been ages, but can you give it a whirl? You just give it a try. A wild guess would make me happy.

 

 

Please stop scratching your head…I will help you out. Here’s the answer: The three parts are: Introduction…body…conclusion.

 

The father of the groom speech example above has all these three parts. If you really want the writing of your father of the groom speech to go down well, you have to split your piece into these three main parts: introduction, body, and conclusion.

 

 

Your introductory remarks are like a magnetic force of attraction because it pulls everyone into your speech.  So you should come up with a killer hook.

 

 

To help you do this, I am going to cull a small portion of it from the above template so you can get an idea of how to write a captivating opener. Here’s our excerpt drawn from our father of the groom speech example.

‘’ Hello everyone. I’m Mike and I’m Eric’s father.

On behalf of his mom Connie and I, we’d like to

thank all of you for joining us in this very

special celebration. ‘’

 

 

You see, there are two sides of the coin when it comes to writing a great opening address and you should always treat each side with the same care and consideration if you want your father of the groom speech to be very successful.

 

 

With that in mind, let’s look at the first side of the coin: the opening remarks

 

It should include these writing elements:

  • Greetings and short-self introduction
  • Expression of gratitude
  • State who you are and your role in the wedding. This is particularly helpful if you are doing father of the groom best man speech.

 

Father of the groom speech etiquette

 

Here’s an example:

When my son asked me to be his best man, my heart missed several beats and I almost passed out. Well, I figured he could have been asked his best friend Mark because they have been friends for 30 years. But I realized that he saw me more than a dad and it brought to the fore our deepest respect and love for one another.

 

Got it, now?

 

The second part of your opening remarks is called the hook and I like it to a movie trailer. It has to inspire and engage your family and friends right out of the gate. Below are some practical ways to do just that.

 

 

First, you can tell a little story about your boy’s childhood.

 

Second, if his mom is not around or deceased, you can pay her a small tribute. Just don’t overdo it because your speech is loving tribute to your son and not a funeral speech. Never, ever forget that.

 

Third, you can make your opening lines witty by using any of these fathers of the groom speech quotes to help you sound smarter and more confident in your delivery.

 

These thoughtful quotes can help jazz up your speech. Please take note of the underlined quote because we will talk about it in our discussion.

  • Every father should remember one day his son will follow his example, not his advice.”- Charles F.Kettering
  • “My father gave me the greatest gift anyone could give another person, he believed in me.- Jim Valvano
  • “No love is greater than that of a father for his son.” ― Dan Brown
  • A son is the clearest reflection of his father in the world’’- Unknown

 

 

Now, let’s use the first quote to write a very short father of the groom speech.

 

 

When I look at how far my beloved son has come down the road, it reminds me of what my dad said when his grandson was born. As a new dad, I was struggling to raise a new family.

 

So, I sought his opinion on a few things and one of the things he said that stills run deep was: Mark, you should remember that one day your little baby would grow up to follow your example, not your advice’’

 

 

Did you notice how I infused the stressed quote into that short father of the groom speech? That’s just one way of using them to enhance a wedding speech.

 

 

As previously stated, the body comes after your introductory remarks? What do you say when crafting it? Easy, right? Hmm. That depends on a lot of factors.

 

 

Of the three aspects of your speech, the body is the toughest part to write. Here’s why. With so many stories about his life buzzing in your head like a swarm of bees, it can be pretty tough to separate ‘’the wheat from the chaff’’ so to speak.

 

But; it’s completely doable. How so? Let’s get back to the body of our speech so you can model your speech after it.

 

Before we look into it, there are a few things you should bear in mind before you craft the body of your father of the groom speech.

 

This Is How Long Your Father Of The Groom Speech Should Be

 

A question most fathers ask is this: How long should my father of the groom speech be? I am not here to give my personal opinion. My answer is based on my working experience of being a father of the groom speech writer for several years.

 

The length of your father of the groom speech should be like having your favorite meal. It should be enough to make you feel full. What does that mean? Ok, I will explain further.

 

I have written both long and short father of the groom speeches and in both instances, I made sure they were exciting and not boring. So, long or short is not something to worry about.

 

Simply put, your storyline should be engaging. But, if your son has asked you to speak for a few minutes (say five, seven, and so on), then your story should be within that time limit.

 

 

He won’t mind though if you beyond the allotted time provided your speech is lovely.  I think sharing this case study will put this matter to bed. One time, I wrote a long father of the groom speech for this nice gentleman. He loved it but had a little concern about its length.

 

 

Well, we couldn’t narrow it down as he‘d wanted because he wanted to include everything about his son. In the end, he got rid of a few things in his speech. But, it was still a little bit long. To cut a long story short, he went with it and came back to say that his speech was a crowd pleaser.

 

 

Another time, I wrote a not so long speech for this grandfather of the groom and he trimmed it down to just one page and his performance was very outstanding. Did you see the difference? Long and short father of the groom speeches can work for you. You have to decide the route to take.

 

 

All in all, the content and style of your speech trumps everything else.  Nonetheless, your speech is patchwork of every single detail of your son’s life and shouldn’t sound like a biography. If sounds like one, then you really need help.

 

 

Do you recall what I said about delivering your lines based on your personality at the outset of this article? Well, that is very vital when crafting the body of your speech.

 

 

If you are a funny guy, you may do a funny speech. If you get teary whenever you talk about your son, you can do a sentimental father of the groom speech.

 

 

On the whole, father of the groom speeches that blends humor, sentiments, and storytelling always seem to be preferred style the wedding crowd enjoy the most.

Having said that, let’s see how this extract (taken from the earlier example) can help you put down a decent story (the body) about your son without twisting facts.

‘’ As a child, Eric was very kind, friendly and

loved to entertain us with jokes.

 Erik has always been a very good traveler. We

climbed to the top of the Eiffel Tower when we

got to France. Later, we got to go to Florida and…

 

He was a whizz at math. I remember a grade

school teacher…

 

He was also a tremendous athlete in school. I

remember this one sniper…

 

 

Do you notice anything that stands out from that summary? Ok, let’s get on with this. To compose the body, you could write down one or more of these anecdotes to get it right:

 

  • Put down memories about his childhood and pick at least two really interesting stories you would like to use.
  • Put down a few memorable details about his youthful years.

 

Here, you may talk or write about his…

  • First job…Was he liked by his boss? What was his work ethic like? Did he love that job? Anything about that job that makes him proud?

 

  • High school graduation and scholarly achievements…was he on the deans or honors list? Did he graduate college?
  • Volunteerism and sports awards received…was he on the basketball or soccer team?

 

 

If your son’s youthful years weren’t particularly eventful, you can highlight his admirable traits. Was he kind? Giving? Is he a person of faith?

 

Reckoning that their sons are the main focus of their wedding speeches, some fathers only talk about their sons. But, you shouldn’t have to do that. Talk about your daughter-in-law too .

 

This example can give you an idea about what to say about her:

Grace gives Mike strength and the belief in himself to go out and achieve all that she wants. She’s an independent, strong lady anyway, but she is happier with him beside her. They are pretty inseparable.

 

 

Let’s do this together (here’s a small assignment for you) : Can you write something about your son using what I have just shared with you? You can….so please go ahead and do it.

 

What to say to your son and daughter-in-law at son's wedding

 

 

Let’s Look At The Closing Chapter Of This Post: The Conclusion

 

Whenever fathers think of rounding up their speeches, they thinking of writing it along these simple lines:

‘’Now is the time for advice for the couple. Erik,

you need to learn….

I wish you all the happiness in the world. Let’s

raise our glasses to Erik and ‘’

 

 

That’s okay as it’s a tried and tested approach of ending on a good note. But, when it comes to ending your father of the groom, memorableness should be the watch word because your closing lines are what your family and friends will remember most.

 

 

So, how can you end on a very memorable note? I am happy to share a few simple but proven ideas with you.

 

 

First, you can end with a witty quote. This quote can come from your own mind, movies, proverbs, and so on.

 

Don’t you think this quote will stick in the mind of your listeners if it’s used as your closing statement?

"The heart wants what it wants." — English love proverb

 

Second, if you are musically gifted, you can do a beautiful rendition of this funny song.

 

 

Imagine tweaking the lyrics a bit and ending with that!

 

Third, what about ending with this touching father of the groom speech rhyming poem?

The Meaning Of Love By Krina Shah

To love is to share life together,
to build special plans just for two,
to work side by side,
and then smile with pride,
as one by one, dreams all come true.

To love is to help and encourage
with smiles and sincere words of praise,
to take time to share,
to listen and care
in tender, affectionate ways.

To love is to have someone special,
one on whom you can always depend
to be there through the years,
sharing laughter and tears,
as a partner, a lover, a friend.

To love is to make special memories
of moments you love to recall,
of all the good things
that sharing life brings.
Love is the greatest of all.

Mother Of The Bride Speech Example/Template 

 

Hello everyone. Most of you know me. I’m Celestine, Tracy’s mom. I’m so happy to be here today, to see my youngest getting married, and to watch my family grow.

 

You can see that I have my share of trials and tribulation, but I am also blessed beyond anything I ever imagined. I got to be the mother of 5 wonderful children.

 

Tracy was the youngest. She was a gift, given to me during the hardest time in my life. I was hurt, healing slowly, and grieving my late husband.

 

A man appeared who had the same surname as my husband. He remembered us from a holiday and after our tragic accident, a lot of people offered him condolences, assuming he was related. But he wasn’t. He came to visit me and

told me about it. We weren’t together long, my heart still belonged to my late husband.

 

But he gave me a wonderful gift. That priceless gift was Tracy. She was a wonderful child. She was always fun, made us laugh, and was adored by her siblings. I suffered from migraines, and she would bring cold towels and put them on my head when she was only 2 years old!

 

As a teenager, she was popular and loved to party! Especially if music was involved. She would go to music festivals and outdoor concerts. There were so many times she came home covered in mud. I always wondered if she was sleeping in a tent or a pigpen!

 

As an adult she is still funny and smart. She is so well liked by her employer the Kerry Group. They like her so much that are probably thrilled that her name will be Mrs. Kerry now!

Mother of the bride speech template

When she met Paul I was thrilled for her. He is so kind and treats her like a queen. He is everything a mother could want for her daughter. To his mom and dad, I have to give huge credit. You have raised a fine young man.


I am so happy to welcome him to our family!
The two of you are about to embark on a wonderful new adventure. Please don’t ever forget how blessed you are. Always treat one another with respect and honesty. Don’t let bad

thoughts fester, and never let good thoughts go unsaid.

 

I have to take a moment to thank my other kids, They helped make her the fabulous woman she is today. I love you all so much.

 

And Tracy, I know that your brother and my husband are together in heaven looking down on you today, both of them proud and happy!

 

Let’s raise a glass to Paul and Tracy aka Mr and Mrs. Tracy! May they live happily ever after!

I love this mother of the bride speech example for three reasons. It’s simple, sincere and touching on many levels.

 

The worst thing you can ever do is to model your wedding speech for your daughter after that mother of the bride speech example without first figuring out how it was written. Most moms make this mistake. But, you don’t have to do that too.

 

This is what I recommend you instead. After giving the above example a quick read, you can read it a second and even a third time so that the contents can be seared into your sub-conscious mind.

 

Afterward, you should split it up and analyze it. To do that, you first need to create an outline or structure from the above example.

 

When you go back to read through it carefully once more, you will notice that the whole thing is built on this speech structure:

  • Introductory remarks or opening address
  • How it feels like to be a mother to the bride
  • She talks about her late husband
  • Mom shares a memory about her childhood
  • She mentions her teenage years and adulthood
  • Mother of the bride talks about the groom
  • She concludes by proposing a toast to the happy couple

 

With an arrangement like that, coming up with the right words and phrases wouldn’t be so hard. Using that as a framework, let’s start by analyzing Celestine’s mother of the bride wedding speech.

 

Let’s take it from the list bullet point…

 

The Introductory or Opening Remarks Of The Mother Of The Bride Speech

 

This is an excerpt.

‘’ Hello everyone. Most of you know me. I’m Celestine, Tracy’s mom. I’m so happy to be here today, to see my youngest getting married,  and to watch my family grow. ‘’

 

Anyone can write this aspect of your wedding speech. But, I think some vital components could have been added to this section.

 

I am asking myself why the speaker didn’t thank family and friends who helped her raise her daughter after her husband’s demise. Anyway, I am not a mind reader.

 

For your presentation, you have to thank some personalities who have been a tremendous blessing in your daughter’s life.

 

To give you an idea, you can thank the father of the bride, her grandma and granddad, the list goes on and on.

 

Here’s an example….

There’s an African proverb that says, “It takes a village to raise a child”. Looking around, our “village” is here today. Life threw me / us some curve balls, and I can’t name every person, every act of kindness and support so many

people here have shown my daughters and me through the years, because we’d never get back on the dance floor, but I would like to honor and remember a few extra special people. I’d like to thank my grandmother Dixon, my mother and father, my brother and sister-in-law Dan and

 

Robin, my sister and brother-in-law Tam and Bill, Aunt Julie and Uncle Edgar, Aunt Evelyn, and Mel and Weis.

 

For your unconditional love, time, laughter, wisdom, advice, babysitting, encouragement, generosity, and sense of family continuity, we are forever grateful and have been incredibly lucky and blessed to have all of you in our lives, in good times and in bad.

This is my homework assignment: Write down a few words of gratitude for individuals who have helped shaped your precious daughter’s life over the years. Then, use it to write your opening remarks.

 

Let’s look at the second bullet point:

How It Feels Like To Be A Mother

 

You can take this from these angles:

  • How does it feel like to be the mom of the bride?
  • How does it feel like to be her mom?
  • How has she’s been a blessing in your life?
  • What does her wedding day mean to you or remind you of ?

M4 (1)

Which of those sentiments strongly resonate with you? For example, if you wish to express your feelings about how it feels like to the mother of the bride, you can jot that down and use it to hook your audience into your wedding speech.

 

The hook should not only be succinct and engaging but also give subtle clues about what you wish to say. The hook could also be mother of the bride speech jokes, quotes, and other words of wisdom.

 

Now, this happens next:

  • She talks about her late husband

 

If your husband is deceased, you may mention it briefly. Remember, this is a happy occasion and you shouldn’t dwell so much on your loss.

 

I culled these lines from the above example.

‘’And Tracy, I know that your brother and my

husband are together in heaven looking down on you today, both of them proud and happy!’’

 

Let’s talk about the next point:

  • Mom shares a memory about her childhood

 

You can of course share more than one anecdote about her childhood if you want to focus exclusively on that phase of her life.

 

When you get here, you can highlight these aspects of her childhood:

 

  • Fun and fond memories
  • Her character traits. Was she adventurous? Loving? Caring? Had a care-free spirit? Pick one out and back it up with a good story.
  • Her thoughts about marriage. I remember writing Michelle’s mother of the bride speech and she asked me to insert somewhere that her daughter used to act like a bride when she was seven(7) and expressed interest in getting married early
  • Do you have a memorable anecdote that still sticks in your mind?

 

Let’s look at the next thing:  

  • She mentions her teenage years/adulthood

 

This is quite similar to her infancy but this center on her transition into her teens. This period can be quite dramatic but you can still craft your mother of the bride speech from these underlying themes:

 

  • Your proudest moments like her 16th birthday party, when she got her driver’s license, her graduation, engagement, and so on.
  • Time spent together on vacation, getaways, camping, volunteering, etc
  • When she won an award for a particular cause
  • What are her accomplishments? Her first job, current job, grades in school, co-curricular activities?
  • Her support for the family, friend, and others...Is she the life of the party? And does she bring the family together on special occasions? Is she fun to be around? Does she bring out the best in others?
  • How does she make your life better? Another story that quickly comes to mind was when a mom of the bride wanted to badly include how supportive her darling daughter was when her beloved husband.

 

How to write a mother of the bride speech tips

 

I think there’s something to this effect in the above mother of the bride speech example:

‘’I suffered from migraines, and she would bring cold towels and put them on my head when…! ‘’

 

This is my homework assignment for you: I have given you several writing ideas. What do you want to go for? Decide and write it down something and get a story or two to support your preferences.

This simple writing exercise can spur you on to coming with a draft mother of the bride speech.

 

We are not done yet. Let’s look at this too:

  • Mother Of The Bride Talks About The Groom

 

Never use this opportunity to say something negative about him or settle personal scores even if you feel he’s not a good guy for your daughter.

 

Focus on the positive side of things by talking about the fact you daughter loves her and you look forward to how they build their lives in the coming years.

 

If you are on good terms and have built a solid relationship with him and his family over the years, then you shouldn’t leave anything to chance.

 

That way, you can share your impressions of him from when you first met him, how you have seen their relationship evolve over the years to why you think he is worthy of her love.

 

Again, grab your pen and write down some few remarks about the groom, your son-in-law.

 

Here’s what I would say about him if I don’t know him well.

It’s obvious that Mike loves Kristin and I look forward to watching them grow in love as the year unfolds….

M3

 

This ends it all….Guess what it is?

Your Toast Or Best Wishes

You can conclude your mother of the bride speech by proposing a toast to the happy couple and wish them well.

 

You can also share some marriage advice. 

 

 

And have you thought about ending with a song? The wedding would be a blast if you end with this hilarious song if you are musically gifted. You can change a few things here and there to reflect your situation.

 

 

This is something to ponder about: Do you recall a special memory about when she was a little girl? Please write down lots of them and settle on your favorite. This can get you some motivation to get started.

A very proud moment for a father of the bride is when he’s able to write and deliver an amazing father of the bride speech.

 

M6 (1)

 

But that experience can take a different turn when you know deep down inside that you are simply not cut out for public speaking or you are not a good writer.

 

It even gets worse when you have tons of memories in your head but unable to get them all out to form a great father of the bride speech that encapsulates the relationship between you and your precious baby girl over the years.

 

Just to clear up any confusion you might have about your wedding speech for your son and daughter-in-law, the first question you should ask yourself if this:

 

What Should The Father Of The Bride Say In His Speech To His Daughter On Her Wedding Day?

 

That might sound like an easy question to answer, but you have to probe further for the right tips and ideas to help you craft an awesome father of the bride wedding speech.

 

Father of the bride speech example

 

Before I share those proven ideas backed my experience of being a father of the bride wedding speech writer, I would like to let you in on something that prevents most dads from giving off their best when they are handed the microphone.

 

If you feel nervous whenever you imagine yourself speaking before the wedding crowd, then you probably have one or more of these fears:

  • Fear of past failures
  • Fear of the unknown

Let’s look at them briefly and how you can channel those negative emotions into becoming a very confident speaker even if you feel you don’t have what it takes to make your proud.

 

First and foremost, let’s look at fear of the past failures.

Whenever you confront any situation you have ever encountered, your brain will bring up good and bad memories of these events. So, if you have goofed when you were asked to speak before a gathering, your mind will start to play silly tricks on you by letting you know that you are not going to do well.

 

If you dwell on this negative voice, you will only be spreading fear through your whole body, mind, and spirit. Instead, put the past behind you and focus on this new task and you will be slowly building yourself up for success.

 

Next, on the list is fear of the unknown.

It’s only normal to feel a bit worried about something you are not so sure of or something you have never experience in your life. Let me explain with this example. We’ve been renting out LED’s for events.

 

My trusted operator lost a relative and had to attend her funeral service, leaving me alone to set the whole thing up. I began to lost sleep over this prior to the day of the event. It was only until I plucked up courage to assemble the parts that I became relaxed and confident in my own abilities.

 

You see, you will certainly feel the nerves if you lack a certain ability to fix something and that’s what I went through until I came out of my shell.

 

The moral of this, clearly, is that you first have to figure out how father of the bride wedding speeches are done before you pen down your thoughts. That, in itself, is a major step towards boosting your self-confidence.

 

Having said all that, let’s now look at

How To Get Content Ideas For Your Father Of The Bride Speech

Here you go:

 

Short Father Of The Bride Speech Example/ Template

 

First of all, I’d like to express my gratitude to all of you for joining us today on this joyous

occasion as we celebrate the union of my

daughter, Kristi, and her loving partner, Azur.

 

Your presence here means the world to us, and

We’re thankful for your love and support. For

those of you who don’t me, I am Leonard and I

am the very proud father of the bride.

 

Today is a special day, not only for Kristi and

Azur but also for our family. It’s a day filled with

mixed emotions for me as a father. I stand here

with pride, but also with a hint of sadness, as I

realize that my little girl is all grown up and

starting a new chapter in her life.

 

Kristi has always been a source of joy,

accomplishment, and responsibility in our

family. Her mother, who is watching over us

 

from heaven, would undoubtedly be immensely

proud of her achievements and the beautiful

person she has become.

 

Kristi’s journey to this moment, alongside AJ,

has been a revelation for me. Initially, I admit I

was concerned when she fell in love with

someone from a different culture and

background.

Father of the bride speech template
 

I questioned whether it was true

love or a fleeting infatuation. But over time, I’ve

come to see that their love is genuine, pure, and

enduring.

 

My reservations have given way to

acceptance, and I’ve come to understand that my role as her protector and caretaker is evolving.

 

Kristi has always been a responsible,

independent, and caring soul. She’s not only

accomplished academically but also in life,

taking on the role of her mother for her two

younger sisters.

 

She has been their guiding light, ensuring they respect elders, uphold our family values, and become good individuals. Kristi leads by example, excelling in her studies, and

treating others with kindness and respect.

 

One of my fondest memories of Kristi from her

early years was her love for cooking. It was

quite unusual for a child her age, but she had an

insatiable passion for food. From the moment

she could reach the kitchen countertops, she

would stand on her tiptoes, don her mini chef’s

hat and apron, and enthusiastically dive into the

world of culinary adventures.

 

She was fascinated by the delicious aromas and the sizzle of ingredients in the pan.

 

Kristi would often experiment with simple

recipes, determined to create the tastiest dishes

possible. Her enthusiasm was infectious, and

 

she often coaxed me into being her kitchen

assistant, helping her chop vegetables, mix

ingredients, and of course, taste-test her

creations. Those early cooking lessons were not

only about food but also about bonding and

creating beautiful memories together.

 

Another story that stands out is Kristi’s

participation in Tae Kwon Do classes when she

was younger. She had always been a spirited

and energetic child, eager to explore new

interests and challenges. Tae Kwon Do was a

perfect fit for her boundless enthusiasm.

 

Despite being one of the few girls in the class and the tallest of them all, Kristi showed exceptional determination and fearlessness. During one memorable sparring session, she was paired with a much larger and stronger boy.

 

As the match began, her opponent struck her

hard in the stomach, causing her to cry out in

pain. Her mother and I were naturally concerned and wanted to stop the session, but Kristi insisted on continuing, even through her tears.

 

She was not one to back down from a challenge.

With sheer determination and a fiery resolve,

she fought on, her determination overshadowing

her discomfort. What was most impressive was

that she not only held her ground but also

managed to defeat her opponent, all while tears

streamed down her face. The referee had no

choice but to raise her hand as the victor,

acknowledging her strength and bravery.

 

Now, as Kristi embarks on a new journey with

Azur, I can’t help but feel reassured. Azur’s

conversion to Catholicism is a testament to his

commitment, and I truly believe he understands

my daughter and cherishes her for who she is.

 

My wish for them is simple: may their marriage

be filled with happiness, joy, and laughter. May

they find strength and support in each other,

growing into good, God-fearing individuals.

May their love be a beacon of hope, respect,

peace, and understanding.

 

To Kristi and Azur, my advice is to always

remember the art of compromise and set

realistic expectations. May your love for each

other continue to grow stronger with each

passing day. Azur, please remember that you now

hold the key to my precious daughter’s heart.

 

Protect and care for her as I have done all these

years. I will keep you both in my prayers, wishing you happiness, good health, and good fortune. May your journey together be blessed and prosperous.

 

And, in closing, I’d like to extend my heartfelt gratitude to Azur’s parents, Adam and Amy, for welcoming Kristi into their family with open arms. Your acceptance and love mean the world to us.

 

Lastly, I would like to thank my own parents.

They have been generous and dependable,

taking on a motherly role for my daughters

when my wife passed away.

 

Their care and support have been invaluable to our family. In conclusion, let us raise our glasses to Kristi and Azur. May their love continue to flourish and may they find a lifetime of happiness together.

Cheers to the bride and groom!

So, how do you go from aimlessly staring at your blank computer screen to coming up with such a masterpiece? Not too hard I guess if you follow this simple plan.

 

Just keep reading to find out more.  If you are going to do too well if all you do is to start writing your father of the bride speech when you are done reading such an example.  

 

It all starts with having a solid plan of action. This involves three phases:

  • Deciding on the kind of father of the bride wedding speech you’d like to deliver
  • How long you want your father of the bride speech to last
  • Creating an outline or speech structure for your presentation
  • Writing your father of the bride speech

 

Let’s start with the first on the list:

  • Deciding On The Type Of Father Of The Bride Speech You Wish To Make

As a father of the bride speech writer, I have seen that most fathers do one or more of these kinds of speeches:

  • Hilarious father of the bride speeches…Here’s an example:

 

  • Touching/sentimental father of the bride speeches
  • Joint parents(mom and dad) of the bride speech
  • Father of the bride speech in song. Here’s a video clip example:

 

  • Dramatic father of the bride speech….Here’s a video example

  • Poetic father of the bride speech
  • Religious/Christian father of the bride speech
  • Combo approach which is a little bit of the above styles
  • Narrative father of the bride speech

 

I have a simple question for you: Which of those speech styles do you want to employ for your speech?

 

I would go for bits and pieces of all. If you can’t do that, then you would be better off going for a narrative or storytelling style which is what you often hear at wedding receptions.

 

Next on the bill is:

  • The Duration Of The Father Of The Bride Speech

Based on my years of experience of writing wedding speeches, I have come to realize that the length of your script should be like a reading a good book or watching a great movie.

It should be short or long enough to capture the most essential parts of your storyline. I have written long and short speeches before and I just made sure they were heartfelt and engaging.

 

So, just don’t go with popular opinion. See, if you have memorable moments that can make your father of the bride speech long or short.

This comes next:

  • Creating An Outline Or Speech Structure For Your Presentation

The structure or outline is like the parts of the human body perfectly fitted together. Each part of the body needs the other to work and function effectively.

 

So, it is with the structure of your father of the bride speech. It helps your audience follow you from start to end. It’s more or less like a  roadmap.

 

Well, I went back to read the whole example and ended up crafting this outline.

  • Introduction
  • Express your sentiments on your daughter’s big day
  • Talk about her childhood
  • Talk about when she was growing up
  • Share her character traits or accomplishments
  • Talk about the groom
  • Share your marriage advice
  • End with a toast

 

Let’s look at what goes into bullet point. Let’s start with the

  • Introduction

The introduction or opening lines of your father of the bride speech has two parts: the salutation and the hook.

 

Here’s an example of the salutation culled from the above speech template.

‘’ First of all, I’d like to express my gratitude to all of you for joining us today on this joyous

occasion…Your presence here means the world to us, and We’re thankful for your love and support. For those of you who don’t me, I am Raymond and I am the very proud father of the bride. ‘’

 

I am sure that’s not too hard to write. First, mention your name and your relationship to the bride and groom and then thank everyone for coming to the wedding. You can give a shout out to some individuals who have had a tremendous impact on your daughter’s life.

 

Again, here’s a text from the passage about a deceased mom and wife.

‘’ Her mother, who is watching over us from heaven, would undoubtedly be immensely

proud of her achievements and the beautiful

person she has become. ‘’

 

You can also mention your own parents as you can see in this extract:

‘’ Lastly, I would like to thank my own parents.

They have been generous and dependable,

taking on a motherly role for my daughters

when my wife passed away. ‘’

 

Now, this is what I want you to do right now. Get a notepad and write down a simple introduction and mention some personalities you would like to thank.

 

I think I have given you lots of clues already. But, another person you can express gratitude to is the mom and dad of the groom. I am sure you are thinking about some other folks too. Please jot down their names and come up with your own example right away. This simple exercise will give you the motivation to get started.

 

The hook follows your introductory remarks or address and they are meant to capture attention of the wedding guests. This, in essence, distinguishes mediocre speeches from great ones.

 

It’s the norm for most fathers to start with this line:

‘’Hello everyone. Good evening and thank you. Alicia is my daughter and he was born on…’’

 

This approach works if you want to be on safe grounds. But, you can make yours unique and intriguing by using one or more of these starters.

 

First, you can start with a father of the bride speech joke if you know a really funny joke. This one can probably elicit some good laughter.

Father of the bride speech samples

Want to do a touching father of the bride speech? Then, you are better off using this second idea: father of the bride speech quotes

How so? Let’s see how these quotes can be used to capture that sentiment.

''The smile of a daughter is the secret purpose of every father.'' — Unknown

''To a father growing old, nothing is dearer than a daughter.'' — Euripides

''A father’s job is not to teach his daughter how to be a lady. It’s to teach her how a lady should be treated.'' — Unknown

''Daughters always revel in their mother’s admiration. And daughters always bask in their father’s love.''― Hendrith Vanlon Smith Jr., The Wealth Reference Guide

''Anyone can be a father, but it takes someone special to be a dad, and that's why I call you dad, because you are so special to me.'' — Wade Boggs.

 

I am going to use the last quote to put my ideas across.

‘’ On father’s day last year, Jane sent me a father’s day card and when I flipped opened it, the words in it pierced through my heart like a dagger. The note said that anyone man can be a father but it takes someone special to be a dad.

That gesture always tears me up and it reminds me of the deep love between Alicia and I… ‘’

 

Third, you can start with a prayer if you are a man of faith.

 

Musically talented? Then, this fourth idea can help you strike gold.  Go for a well-known tune, a love or wedding song and modify the lyrics and belt your heart out. This man did so with finesse and it’s worthy of emulation.

He is very gifted!

 

 

  • Let’s get back to the next item on the structure/outline: Express your sentiments on your daughter’s big day

Here’s an extract from the above example:

‘’ Today is a special day, not only for Krista and

AJ but also for our family. It’s a day filled with

mixed emotions for me as a father. I stand here

with pride, but also with a hint of sadness, as I

realize that my little girl is all grown up and

starting a new chapter in her life. ‘’

M6 (1)

Using those lines as models of writing inspiration, you can ask yourself these questions:

  • How do I feel about my precious daughter getting married? Is it a mixture of sadness and joy? A dream come true? The proudest father of the bride ever? Does her wedding day coincide with your wedding anniversary or the day you got married?

Just write down your feelings and mention the reason for that.

 

Let’s continue….

  • Talk about her childhood/growing up years

If you are doing a narrative kind of father of the bride speech, then you can share a few memorable stories about when she was a little girl. Little girls can sometimes be mischievous, so I guess you have some wonderful stories to share with her friends and the groom.

 

You may share one or two due to time constraints. If you were not in her life during those formative years, just talk about aspects of her life you played a very defining role.

 

Do this next:

  • Share her character traits or accomplishments

Mention the wonderful aspects of her character and how that makes her uniquely suited for marriage. Let me give you an idea here. Write down three good things about her and embellish just one with a nice story.

 

You shouldn’t worry too much about her accomplishments if she has none going for her. If you want to weave them in, you can still do that subtly without sounding like a campaign poster.

 

This happens next:

Talk About The Groom

 

If you don’t like him, please don’t mention it. You can probably say that you are happy that she’s found someone to spend the rest of her life with.

Well, some fathers have great relationship with the groom spanning decades. If you have built a solid relationship already, then you have some amazing stories to share about your friendship with him.

This is a perfect example:

Dan, you are a good man who has taught Ellen to love and to trust in a way that she has never done before. I know you will see this as the gift it is and cherish her heart forever.

 

This is a mini-assignment to get your ideas flowing:

  • How long have you known the groom?
  • How does she balance out your daughter?
  • Why is he the perfect guy for your darling daughter?

 

Now, write down answers and use them to write something short about the groom.

 

We are slowly getting to the end of this: this happens next:

  • Share some marriage advice.

This advice is way funnier:

 



You may modify the lyrics of the song if you want to end your father of the bride speech on a hilarious note:

 

Let’s say, your daughter is Charlotte and your new son-in-law is Mark. So, then, I change a few words in that funny clip to look like this:

Hey Charlotte, have you gained some weight in your rear end

The dress you wear reminds me of my old girl

Mark, if you are a man who wants to live a long and happy life

These are the things you don’t say to your wife…

 

Did you see how I modeled the words after that funny wedding advice clip?

Groom Speech Example/Sample

 

A special thank you to hitched.co.uk for posting this example.

 

“On behalf of my wife and I, we would like to welcome you all to our special day and thank you all for coming. We are thrilled to have so many of our family and close friends surrounding us today, and some of you have travelled a long way to be here and for that we are honoured.

Thank you all for your gifts and generous contributions to our honeymoon. I can honestly say it wouldn’t be the same without all of you being here today…. although it would have been a lot less stressful making this speech out to an empty room.

 

I personally would like to start off by thanking my father in-law, not just for his generous contribution to this day, but also for giving me permission to take on the role of loving and protecting his daughter. I know how important Emily is to you and Kim, and I promise to always make your daughter my top priority and never leave her side.

 

Mum and Dad, I want to thank you for always being there for me with unconditional love and support. You’ve allowed me to make my own decisions in life and been there to pick up the pieces when it’s fallen apart. I appreciate everything you’ve done for me and I love you both very much.

 

 

I want to thank two very special and important ladies in my life. Maureen and Eileen. This is probably the only time I’ll get to say how grateful I am for your love and wisdom you’ve given me through all my years of knowing you both. You’ve had a huge influence in my childhood and helped me become the man I am today. Thank you, Nan and Nanny Ben.

 

 

Now I would like to take a moment in thanking my whole family. From the moment I introduced Emily, all of you here today made Emily feel welcome. She’s always felt included and you’ve treated her like one of the family. For that we are both truly grateful.

Groom wedding speech
 

Can you please put your hands together for Emily’s bridesmaids, Sophie, Beth and Demi who I’m sure you will all agree look absolutely stunning. I want to thank them for all the support they’ve given Emily into making sure she has a wonderful wedding day.

 

Uncle Mark, thank you for taking on the role of being my best man and standing by my side today. I’m truly grateful for everything you’ve done for me over the years.

 

Thank you for organising a great stag do. It’s safe to say everyone enjoyed themselves. What I’m most thankful for is not wake up the next morning chained to a lamppost. Although I still can’t say the following morning was easy.

 

Can you please put your hands together for our two ushers Jordan and Luca for helping to make sure today went as planned. Thank you for guiding our guests to their seats and handing out the order of service.

 

I have one more thank you left, then you can all go back to drinking. And of course, I’m saving the best till last. Emily, where do I begin to say how much I love you and how happy I am I can now call you my wife. Writing this was truly easy, because I switched off my brain (which doesn’t take a lot) and let my heart do the talking.

 

Words can’t describe how beautiful you look today. Just knowing I’m sharing the rest of my life with you makes me already feel I’ve succeeded in life.

 

We’ve been planning this wedding for well over a year now. Well, I say “we”, Emily actually did all the work, as one of the best things about being a man, is that weddings just seem to organise themselves.

 

Now I know that makes me sound like I haven’t wanted to help, but whenever I asked Emily if there was anything I could do to take the weight off her shoulders, the answer was usually “ummmmm no”. She even ended up taking over the groomsman suit fitting. And I really did try keeping that for myself to say I had done something.

 

Emily has worked so hard and put so much effort into making today possible. She has organised and arranged things I would never even consider. She has gone into so much detail and really has thought about everything.

 

 

I’ve been so amazed watching you plan this wedding. Your organisation skills have overwhelmed me! And I already knew you liked being organised!  You’ve done an amazing job babe and I think I can speak on behalf of everyone here today when I say we want you to enjoy today without any worries you may have.

 

 

I feel so lucky to have found a bride that not only has the same sense of humour as me but is beautiful and kind. You have a gorgeous smile and seeing that smile anytime of the day puts a smile on my face. I don’t always make the right decisions in life, but one thing I know for sure, marrying you will never be one of them.

 

We’ve definitely come a long way together and had some challenging times. But I feel we have taught each other so much along the way. No relationship is easy, and there will always be challenges waiting for us. But I can honestly say with confidence, as long as we always face them together, we can do anything.

 

You are my rock and I love you with all my heart.

Thank you for giving me purpose.

Now can I ask you all to stand and raise a glass to the love of my life Emily. To Emily. Thank you.”

M5

 

I love this groom speech because it’s short, sweet, and simple. Having said that, let’s look at how to write something similar, if not better than that.

 

To do that, let’s first look at the structure of the entire wedding speech by the groom. Do you have any idea what that is? Ok, I will help you out.

 

When you scroll up this page and read that groom speech sample once again, you will realize that the whole thing is built on these pillars:

  • Introductory remarks
  • The body or content of the groom speech
  • The conclusion or closing remarks

 

The introductory remarks are not hard to pick out, right? Let’s cull out excerpts from it if you can’t find it.

 

Here it is.

“On behalf of my wife and I, we would like to welcome you all to our special day and thank you all for coming. We are thrilled to have so many of our family and close friends surrounding us today, and some of you have travelled a long way to be here and for that we are honoured. Thank you all for your gifts and generous contributions to our honeymoon…

I personally would like to start off by thanking my father in-law, not just for his generous contribution to this day…

 

Mum and Dad, I want to thank you for always being there for me with unconditional love and support…

 

I want to thank two very special and important ladies in my life. Maureen and Eileen. This is probably the only time I’ll get to say how grateful I am for your love and wisdom…

 

Now I would like to take a moment in thanking my whole family. From the moment I introduced Emily, all of you here today made…

 

Can you please put your hands together for Emily’s bridesmaids, Sophie, Beth and Demi who I’m sure you will all agree look absolutely stunning. I want to thank them for…

 

Uncle Mark, thank you for taking on the role of being my best man and standing by my side today. …

 

Thank you for organising a great stag do. It’s safe to say everyone enjoyed themselves. What I’m most thankful for is not wake up the next morning……….

 

Can you please put your hands together for our two ushers Jordan and Luca for helping to make sure today…

 

Is there something you picked up from that passage? I mean anything that jumps out at you? Reading through those excerpted versions intently, you will notice that the theme of gratitude runs through it. 

 

Remember the proverb that says it takes a whole village to raise up a child? It makes a lot of sense here because so many people have probably helped mold you and the bride into who you are today.

Groom speech examples
 

So, first and foremost, grab your pen and writing pad or open up that laptop and put down their names and what you’d like to tell them.

 

Do you have such personalities in mind? First on the list, should be your mom and dad.

 

Second, the mom and dad of the bride and her whole extended family.

 

Third, your uncles and aunts.

 

Fourth, the best man/groomsman/ushers etc.

 

Fifth, the bridesmaid.

 

The list goes on and on.  As an aside, make sure you mention why you are thanking them.

 

I love assignments. So, I want you to do this right now. Jot down names of people you would like to express gratitude to.  That should be rather easy to do. Don’t doubt yourself. Just give it a try. You can!

Now, let’s look at…

How to Write the Content of Your Groom’s Speech

 

The body or content of your groom speech should be fairly easy to write. But, it gets so hard when you have to wrap up all those scattered ideas into a very short piece.

It can be overwhelming if you have dated the bride for a very long time and you have tons of memories in your head.

 

Thankfully, the above template can help us put our exact thoughts and emotions into a coherent structure or order with ease.

 

Let’s look at parts of it so we can easily figure it out.  Let’s do this together.

‘’    Words can’t describe how beautiful you look today. Just knowing I’m sharing the rest of my life with you makes me already feel I’ve succeeded in life…I feel so lucky to have found a bride that not only has the same sense of humour as me but is beautiful and kind. You have a gorgeous smile and seeing that smile anytime of the day puts a smile on my face. ‘’

 

There are so many ways of making the bride feel so proud.

 

First, you can compliment her looks and wedding dress before you segue into a brief story about how you met the bride.

 

Second, you can just launch into your groom speech by sharing an anecdote about you met the bride.

 

Third, to make your groom speech memorable and unique, you can just render your speech into a song and belt it out if you have a really good voice. This is a classic example.

 

Fourth, you can use what I call the combo approach to make it super memorable and distinct. This is how it works.

  • Write a story about how and where you met
  • You can make it funny by sharing how you balance each other out.
  • Once, you have got it all down on paper, you can start practicing by telling a story and then ending with a well-known love song or a poem.

 

This Is How To Come Up With Ideas For The Content.

  • Mention how and where you met
  • Write down what drew you to her
  • Jot down what you really like about her
  • Write down a lot of fun and fond memories or anecdotes and pick out what you would like to use
  • Mention why you love her and your dreams for the years to come.

 

Next, put your ideas together to form a rough draft. You can always go back to edit it to suit your style and personality.

Groom speech sample

Finally, let’s look at…

 

How To Write The Closing Remarks Of Your Groom Speech

Helen Keller made a profound statement that the best and most beautiful things in the world cannot be seen or even touched; they must be felt with the heart. How you conclude your groom’s speech must be felt with the heart too if you want to end on an impactful note.

It is not uncommon for the vast majority to conclude their groom wedding speeches with sentiments like this: ''Here's to my lovely bride...cheers''

 

That was just a tip of the iceberg. There are actually more ways of ending with a bang and I am happy to share a few ways of wrapping up on a memorable note.

M6 (1)

First, you can give a very special gift to the bride. What do you consider to be a great gift for her?

 

Second, if you are talented musically, you can write down your promises and add your voice to it and you will end up delivering an emotional or romantic groom speech like this one:

 

 

Third, you can end it all by reciting a powerful love poem. You may model it after your promises or vows.

First and foremost, let’s look at this:

 

Maid Of Honor Speech Example/ Template

I would like to thank hitched.co.uk for posting this on their website.

 

Liz… I’m so happy to be here today as your maid of honour, and to be able to tell everyone here how perfect Liz and Mike are for each other.

 

For those of you who don’t know, I’m Michelle, best friend of Liz’s for nearly 20 years. We were in 6th grade when we first met, and bonded because we were both going through our cringy anime phase together (and are still going through). She was obsessed with the anime Gundam Wing and I was a weird, nerdy kid who happened to like it too.

 

You were by my side on my actual wedding day as my maid of honour, and now I am by yours, finally getting to see you walk down the aisle to the man of your dreams.

 

I never would have thought that this friendship that started from passing notes in class and doodling anime boys to one another would be my most treasured and long-lived friendship. But it wasn’t hard, since, over time, I learned that Liz is one of the most dedicated and loving people you will ever meet.

 

When she decides to be loyal to someone, she will put her whole heart into it. I really could go on and on about how wonderful she is, and god knows I have many stories of our shenanigans, from anime and boy drama through middle school and high school, to drunken all-nighters and Anime Expos in college. But when I think about our friendship, I like to recall us sneaking off to the apartment pool one night because summers in Riverside are hot as hell even after sunset.

 

We dipped our feet in the water and gushed about being at each other’s weddings and even having kids around the same time so our kids could be best friends like us (OR MAYBE MORE…). And here we are now…

 

You were by my side on my actual wedding day as my maid of honour, and now I am by yours, finally getting to see you walk down the aisle to the man of your dreams. And I know there’s no man more worthy of your love and intense loyalty than Mike.

 

I watched their relationship bloom, from cute virtual dates in World of Warcraft, to sneaking off to Disneyland during the summer, and I saw that both of them were romantics who genuinely wanted to make it work.

 

Liz has always had a type – she loves the cool, mysterious, quiet types with good jawlines. In Mike’s case, his cool exterior as they got to know each other in high school was likely him just being socially awkward and shy.

 

But I watched their relationship bloom, from cute virtual dates in World of Warcraft, to sneaking off to Disneyland during the summer, and I saw that both of them were romantics who genuinely wanted to make it work. And I know you both worked your asses off to make it work.

Maid of honor speech examples
 

Few people realise how many challenges you two overcame to be together and stay together. You were long distance for half of your relationship – over high school AND college, across the country, from California to Ohio. That’s a huge accomplishment.

 

People change so much from those ages, become totally different people with different goals. Yet Liz and Mike made it work. They grew together and always, always made an effort to intertwine their lives together.

 

They never stopped communicating, never stopped dating each other, even when they finally closed the distance. This is a couple that still kiss and hug and look at each other like love-struck teenagers several years later...

 

As Liz’s roommate, I can tell you she was always on the phone or webcam with him. She’d lovingly craft comics and art of them two to send in care packages to him, and I remember Mike drawing something for her, even though he’s not the drawing type, and running it by me for the sake of reciprocating her love.

 

And they kept this up for years. They never stopped communicating, never stopped dating each other, even when they finally closed the distance. This is a couple that still kiss and hug and look at each other like love-struck teenagers several years later, yet have the confidence and intimacy of one that’s grown old and wise together.

 

Liz and Mike, as a couple, you two are exactly where you should be. To the happy couple and their happily ever after!

 

As someone who has watched their relationship from the very beginning, you two truly embody a piece of advice I once heard about marriage:

“A wedding ceremony should only, ever and always, be an affirmation that the relationship is where the couple wants to be, and a promise to keep it like that.” Liz and Mike, as a couple, you two are exactly where you should be. To the happy couple and their happily ever after!

Well, Let's Dive In! - We're Going To Draft A Beautiful Maid Of Honor Toast

 

Recall that maid of honor speech sample? It has an introduction, body, and conclusion.  Pretty standard, right? But these three components form the basis for every speech.

 

So, let’s now focus on how best to write the first part of your maid of honor speech: an introduction

 

To get a fair idea of how to write the opening remarks, let's revisit that introduction, digest it, and then you'll know what to say.  Also, what not to say, which is equally important.

 

"Hello all. Your presence here, to cheer on Brooke and Brian, means the world. I'm Faith, if you didn't know. Brooke's little sister. And today, I stand here as her Maid of Honor."

Take a pause here, let that sink in. Then, show your gratitude.



"A special thank you goes out to our parents. Mary, Robert, your love for us is undeniable. Gloria, William, your support for Brian has been immense. All of you, together, made this day possible. The love you've shown, it's a shining beacon. It's the essence of true marriage. From the bottom of my heart, thank you."

 

Let's break it down, shall we? The first few lines should include two things (Part A):

  • First, who you are and how you're connected to the bride.
  • Second, a warm welcome and expression of appreciation.

 

Let's say you're the bride's sister. Go ahead and express your gratitude to your parents, grandparents even, especially if they've played a significant role in your upbringing. If you are a friend of the bride, simply thank everyone for coming to the wedding and deliver your speech.

 

Take a moment to thank her for the honor of being asked to speak. Make sure she knows how deeply honored and excited you are to stand beside her side as her maid of honor. There's magic in expressing your emotions, believe me. The crowd will feel it too.

 

Let's take a little task to start things off. Grab a pen, a piece of paper. Write down names. Names of the folks you'd like to acknowledge, right at the start. Jot them down in this space.

 1)…………

 2)…………

 3)…………

M5

Believe it or not, there’s actually a second part connected to the introduction. Shall we look at it?

Ok…here you go: I picked up those lines from the maid of honor speech above.

''Brooke, as a big sister, you were incredible. Growing up, I didn’t fully grasp the extent of your love and support.''

 

Guess what? It's the preface to your speech's body, the hook if you will. Here's how you can make your speech captivating from the get-go with a ‘’killer’’ hook.

 

First, start off with a compliment, simple and sweet. Look at this example:

 

Anita, you radiate beauty tonight, sitting next to your charming prince.

Next, got a good singing voice like this maid of honor? Use it. Serenade the audience with your opening lines. Entertain the guests with a popular tune. One they can hum, sway or even dance along to. Make it an unforgettable moment. Trust me, they'll love it! Here's an example:

 

 

Next, open with a quote. A quote about love, marriage or friendship. Here are a few heart-warming ones to kick start your speech:

  • Moulin Rouge said, “The greatest thing you'll ever learn is just to love and be loved in return.”
  • Jean Dan said, “Every woman deserves happiness. Yet, she becomes her true self when she finds the one who completes her joy.”
  • Jean Dan also said, “A good man is the best gift God can give a good woman from His treasure chest.”
  • Here's another from Jean Dan, “True love remains elusive until you meet the one your heart and soul yearn for.”
  • Megan said “I never knew what love was until I met you, and when distance separated us, I discovered what true love meant."

 

Now, let's ask ourselves. Can you transform any of these quotes into an enchanting intro? Let's try this exercise together.

"I discovered the true meaning of love when I met my best friend two decades ago."

 

Feel the warmth in that? It pulls at your heartstrings, doesn't it? Noticed how seamlessly I incorporated the quote, "'I never knew what love was until I met you. When distance pulled us apart, I discovered what true love is'"? The result is touching and genuine. That's the power of a well-placed quote.

 

Another tactic? Play with words. Make your speech humorous. Something like this:

"Good afternoon, all. I'm 'berry' happy…(pause and laugh) Maybe it's because I had berries for breakfast? It warms my heart seeing so many of you traveled from afar to be here. It means the world."

Maid of honor speech for friend

(Note: switch 'very' with 'berry' to engage the audience)... (pause, wait for chuckles, then add)...

 

Better still, you may start with a rhyming poem like this one:

These I Can Promise - Mark Twain 

I cannot promise you a life of sunshine;
I cannot promise riches, wealth, or gold;
I cannot promise you an easy pathway
That leads away from change or growing old.
But I can promise all my heart’s devotion;
A smile to chase away your tears of sorrow;

A love that’s ever true and ever growing;
A hand to hold in yours through each tomorrow.

 

Now, a question for you. Which technique resonates with you for the second part of your introduction? Pick one. Scribble down some thoughts and see what happens.

 

Next up, let's learn...

How to Write The Body of Your Maid of Honor Speech Using This Example

 

Let's take inspiration from the example above. The path to guide us, so to speak.

"Almost every childhood memory of mine involves you, all the more wonderful because of you. Remember our all-day 'Olden Days' games?"

 

Faith discussed memories. And that's precisely what your maid of honor speech should be.

 

How to gather those memories? It's easy. Get your notepad, pen, and answer these questions:

  • When and where did you first meet the bride? If you're her sister, talk about her birth. If you are not her sister, you can just mention how and when you first met and became friends.
  • How did your bond grow? Share childhood memories if she's your sister. Stick to the good ones. No embarrassing tales, unless they're humorously spun.
  • What shared interests do you have? Travelling? Shopping? Sports? Reading? Just write them down and embellish it with a good story if you can
  • What funny and sweet memories do you have of the bride?
  • Mention the groom too. If you don't know him well, tell him he's lucky to have married your friend or sister and share with him a few tips for making her happy.

 

Here's what I suggest: Answer the questions above, use those to create an outline or bullet points. Then, pen a first draft. Edit and polish it until the content and style sing in harmony. If your storyline is too long, just go with what you would like to share with your family and friends.

Alright, now we come into the last part...

Wrapping Up Your Maid of Honor Speech Unforgettably!

 

The grand finale of your toast should leave an imprint like the words of a sacred book. You want the memory of your words to linger. To achieve that, here are some foolproof strategies:

  • Are you married? Share a golden nugget about what keeps a marriage thriving.
  • Share encouraging words or wishes for the newlyweds. Simple yet heartfelt. Can you write one? Not too hard to jot one down, right?
  • How about ending with a love quote from a movie? Here are some contenders:

From "Angels in the Outfield" (1994), "Love is that can't-eat, can't-sleep, reach-for-the-stars, over-the-fence, World Series kind of stuff."

  • If the couple met online, borrow this from "Her" (2013), "The heart's not like a box that gets filled up. It expands in size the more you love."
  • Or, the tongue-in-cheek quote from "Knocked Up" (2007), “Marriage is like a tense, unfunny, version of Everybody Loves Raymond, only it doesn’t last 22 minutes. It lasts forever."
  • Or, a touching poem could be just the thing. Poetry has a way of expressing feelings like nothing else.
  • If you or the couple holds Christian beliefs, ending your speech with a Bible verse or scriptures could add a special touch.

 

I'm drawn to using Psalm 128 as my wrap-up. It's such a heartwarming scripture!

Psalm 128 from the New International Version reads like a song rising to the heavens:

I would like to use Psalm 128 to wrap up….it’s such a beautiful bible quote!

Psalm 128(New International Version)

A song of ascents.

1 Blessed are all who fear the Lord,

who walk in obedience to him.

2 You will eat the fruit of your labor;

blessings and prosperity will be yours.

3 Your wife will be like a fruitful vine

within your house;

your children will be like olive shoots

around your table.

4 Yes, this will be the blessing

   for the man who fears the Lord.

5 May the Lord bless you from Zion;

may you see the prosperity of Jerusalem

all the days of your life.

6 May you live to see your children’s children— peace be on Israel.

 

These are all great choices. But remember, it's about what resonates with you, what you feel will best encapsulate your sentiments, and importantly, what you believe will be a meaningful note to end on for the bride, groom, and the audience.

Your maid of honor speech is your gift to them, so make it as unique and special as they are.

Maid of Honor Speech For Friend Example/Template #1

Thank you to hitched.co.uk for posting this on their website.

 

First of all, I want to thank you all for coming so far for this special event. I know it means a lot to Toni and Jeremy. We are missing one very important person today, Stacie, Toni's sister whom we lost 2 months ago. But I know she is here today Toni, holding your other hand.

Jeremy got here when I was 9, so I was actually old enough to enjoy having another baby brother in the house. We all knew from the get-go that Jeremy had a different sense of humor than most little boys.

 

He started climbing walls at a very young age, literally, and was soon thereafter bungee jumping the cats off the bunk beds. At age four, he held the family hostage in the driveway with the hose. Every time one of us tried to get past him to turn it off, he would shoot us full blast in the face with water. It took Uncle Joe to finally get the hose away from Jeremy and free us all.

 

Now, Toni and I met at Dan's Foods Grocery store when we were both 19. The first time I remember talking to her was when she was a checker and I was a bagger. I had asked her to work for me, and she said she would, as long as she didn't have to bag. Obviously, the managers were not ok with that, but I was really impressed by her easygoing manner, and her willingness to help me out.

 

We hung out for a few months after that and quickly realized how much we enjoyed each other's company. Through the years, we have been roommates in Utah, hiking and camping buddies, roommates in Indiana, lifelong friends, and now sisters. It hasn't always been easy, but Toni has made me work at it to make it as good as it is now.

 

I have known Jeremy for 23 years and Toni for 13, and I can't think of a better pair. My brother and my best friend. Before they ever dated, Toni always flirted with Jeremy, and I remember his retort to her attention. “Toni, I'm too young for you, and by the time I'm old enough for you, you'll be too old for me.” That must have been the hook that caught her. Who knew that all these years later, they would be getting married? But how wonderful that they did.

 

This marriage is not always going to be easy for them, but I think it will be a good one. Toni likes to talk about her feelings, and Jeremy doesn't like to talk at all. In fact, I've told Toni that being friends with me for all these years was just training for marrying Jeremy.

 

However, knowing the two of them, with two of the most caring, thoughtful, and generous hearts, I know they will be fine. Jeremy and I grew up together, Toni and I grew up in the real world together, and Toni and Jeremy will grow together as a family.

 

Now, having been married for a whole two years now, I have some expert marriage advice to give:

– Whenever you're wrong, admit it. Whenever you're right, be quiet.

– The best way to remember an anniversary is to forget it just once. (which Sean just learned!)

Maid of honor speech for friend examples

– If you're clever, you'll always have the last word. However, if you're really clever you won't use it.

– A happy wife is a happy life.

 

– AND Jeremy- don't ever worry that Toni will leave you. She has spent years training you, and she won't give that up easily.

Now, lets raise our glasses to Toni and Jeremy. Here's to love, laughter, and happily ever after. Cheers!

Maid of Honor Speech For Sister Example/Template #2

Thank you to hitched.co.uk for posting this on their website.

 

Ladies and Gentlemen: you'll be pleased to know I am only going to speak for a couple of minutes because of my throat..… if I go on too long Maria has threatened to cut it! I just want to say a few things on this happy day.

For those of you that don't know me I'm Maria's sister, Susie.
I've decided not to tell any embarrassing stories because it would also be
embarrassing to me… and our parents probably don't know about most of
them.

 

Having known Maria for all her life I have a huge large library of stories to tell you that will leave her embarrassed and humiliated, but out of respect for her on her big day I have decided NOT to tell them.

 

(1) So I'm not going to tell you about the time that she was a senior in high school and two months before graduation she and her three friends were caught skipping school and when her parents punished her by making her take the school bus to school for the rest of the school year, she used her 12yr old sister at the time – that would be me- to be the lookout as she would sneak into her friends cars.

 

(2) And I'm not going to tell you about the time that Maria was three years old still living in a small village in Portugal. She was fascinated by these little ducks in a nearby pond and wanted to play with these ducklings so much that she would grab hold of them but the ducks got frightened and struggled to get out of these strange little girls’ hands, but Maria, still hoping the ducklings would play with her, would clutch them even tighter and ended up strangling them. To this day, people still wonder why there is an eerie shortage of ducks in our home village.

 

(3) And lastly I'm not going to tell you about the time my dad was outside barbecuing and asked Maria to run inside and tell her mom that he needed more charcoal. Now in the Portuguese language the word “charcoal” is incredibly similar to a profane word, which I will not repeat here today. So much to our mother's dismay, little Maria came running in declaring that her father needed more________!

 

Anyway, enough of the cheap shots. On a serious note..… It is an absolute honour for me to be your maid of honor today. You are a great sister, a great daughter and a great friend.


I've never seen you happier than you have been these last few years with Richard. I hope the best for you now and always. May you guys share everything in life together equally, including the housework!

 

We are all here today to celebrate everything that Maria and Rich have found in each other – a best friend, a lover, a teacher, a playmate, a true partner for life. As you sit side by side through this roller coaster of life remember to scream from the peaks, hold hands through the dips, laugh through the loop-the-loops and enjoy every twist and turn for the ride is better because you share it together. Separately, you are two special, remarkable people but together you are complete.

 

Lastly, I'd like to wish for you words from a song “I'll Stand By You” by the Pretenders:

“When you are at the crossroads,
and you don't know which path to choose
let me come along,
because even if you're wrong,
I'll stand by you”

 

Now Ladies and Gentlemen, would you all please stand and join me in a toast to Maria and Richard: May your love be like the wind, strong enough to move the clouds, soft enough to never hurt, but always never ending.

 

To love, laughter, and happily ever after. Cheers!

I hope you enjoyed reading both samples. I did! Both examples are hilarious, sweet and heartfelt.

 

I know you might be wondering how best you can model your maid of honor speech after those examples. It’s actually easy than you think. I am happy to help you out.

 

To do that, you first have to build an outline/structure from both of them. If you scroll up and read both templates once again, you will notice that both wedding speeches are centered on this outline:

  • Greetings
  • Short-self introduction
  • A few thank you notes
  • A brief note before you start your speech
  • A story about the bride
  • A story about the groom
  • How they complement each other
  • Share a few thoughts about marriage if you can/want to
  • End with your toast

 

I know you are already taking notes. If you can put those ideas down on paper and back each idea up with a few facts about the bride and groom, then you are on to something great.  

 

Ok…let’s dissect each idea one step at a time and see how best you can figure out this whole thing.

 

It makes a lot of sense that we use the above outline to frame our thoughts. So, let’s start with that.

  • Greetings

Here are excerpts from both maid of honor speeches.

This wasn’t captured in both examples but I think a little child can write this aspect of your speech.

 

Next on the list is

  • Short-self introduction

Below is an example culled from the second example.

‘’ For those of you that don't know me I'm Maria's sister, Susie. I've decided not to tell any embarrassing stories because….’’

If I were this sister, I would have added the fact that I appreciate her asking me to stand by her side her big and even thank her for honoring me this way. This addition would make her wedding very emotional.

 

This is a homework assignment for you: Just write down your relationship with the bride and how you feel about being her maid of honor. Or better still, how you felt when she chose you to be her maid of honor.

Maid of honor speech examples and templates

Here’s an example to buttress this point.

Anita is a social butterfly and has lots of friends. So, when her wedding day was approaching, I figured she would ask one of her friends with very vibrant personalities to take my place. Out of nowhere, she called me one summer afternoon and asked me to be her maid of honor which is an honor and privilege I hold in very high esteem.


The next idea on the list is…

  • A few thank you notes

You should start by thanking everyone for coming out from far and near to grace the event. Then, thank the bride for choosing you to be her maid of honor.

 

If you have bridesmaid to support you and the bride, then you can mention it and thank them as well.

 

I have to ask you this question: Are there other personalities you would like to include in your gratitude list? A hint: Are you the bride’s sister? If you are, you can thank your parents and extended family for molding your sister into the person she’s grown up to be.

 

There are some other figures you can say thank you to. Just do a little brainstorming to find out who deserves some words of gratitude.

 

Let’s look at the next item on the list:

  • A brief note before you start your speech

How you start your maid of honor speech will go a long way towards how well your speech is received. Hence, you should start on a bright note with one or more of these techniques.

  • Start with a joke.
  • You can start off with a nice quote. Any of these love quotes can probably work.
  • "In all the world, there is no heart for me like yours. In all the world, there is no love for you like mine." — Maya Angelou
  • "Love is passion, obsession, someone you can't live without." — William Parrish
  • "I love you not only for what you are, but for what I am when I am with you." — Elizabeth Barrett Browning
  • If you have a beautiful voice, you can start off by singing the bride’s favorite song or opening your speech with a tune everyone can sing along to. An example is seen below:

 

 

Questions to help you get some ideas down onto that paper: How would you like to start your maid of honor wedding speech? With a poem? Or A Song? Or What? The ball is in your court.

 

Let’s move on to what you’ve been waiting for:

  • A story/stories about the bride

 

This aspect of your maid of honor speech for your friend or sister is where it gets tricky for so many maids.

You have tons of memories deep down in your brain. But, it gets pretty hard when it comes to getting those ideas all down onto paper. But, how do you from staring at the blank white page to scripting it all down?

It’s simple. Just pour down every story you can remember about your bonds of friendship. You can write about stuff like:

  • Stories about where and when you first met
  • How you became close friends
  • When you traveled together
  • Birthday celebrations
  • Memorable getaways
  • Graduation ceremonies
  • Vacation Trips
  • Your shared interests or hobbies, etc.
  • Write about how the bride inspires you

 

This is a little assignment for you: Write down whatever you recall about your bonds of friendship and choose at least three stories you would like to weave into your maid of honor speech for the bride. This simple exercise can help you find content ideas for your wedding speech with ease.

 

Let’s look at another thing related to the above:

A story about the groom

If you have been friends with the bride and groom for a while, then you can obviously write something about the groom as shown in this example.

‘’ I have known Jeremy for 23 years and Toni for 13, and I can't think of a better pair. My brother and my best friend. Before they ever dated, Toni always flirted with Jeremy, and I remember his retort to her attention. “Toni, I'm too young for you, and by the time I'm old enough for you, you'll be too old for me.” That must have been the hook that caught her. Who knew that all these years later, they would be getting married? But how wonderful that they did.’’

If you don’t know him really well, you can simply say that they are a perfect match because they obviously love each other.

M6 (1)

Here’s another thing you need to know about:

  • Share a few thoughts about marriage if you can/want to

I know it’s not customary for maid of honors to deliver pieces of advice for the bride and groom. But, you would be seen as a thoughtful and caring friend or sister if you can add a piece of advice to your speech.  

 

If you just can’t do that for obvious reasons, you can probably chip in with a nice quote about love or marriage.

 

You may use any of these:

What greater thing is there for two human souls, than to feel that they are joined for life--to strength each other in all labor, to rest on each other in all sorrow, to minister to each other in silent unspeakable memories at the moment of the last parting?"
- George Eliot

"When you realize you want to spend the rest of your life with somebody, you want the rest of your life to start as soon as possible."
- When Harry Met Sally

"A great marriage is not when the 'perfect couple' comes together. It is when an imperfect couple learns to enjoy their differences."
- Dave Meurer

"The real act of marriage takes place in the heart, not in the ballroom or church or synagogue. It's a choice you make--not just on your wedding day, but over and over again--and that choice is reflected in the way you treat your husband or wife."
- Barbara de Angelis

Marriage is not 50-50. Marriage is 100-100 – it isn’t dividing everything in half but giving everything that you have got.

 

Marriage is about sharing your joys and sorrows. It is about standing together and working as a team. This is what a marriage is made of. If you know how to share, cherish your partner, and love, you would never have to divide. Learn to share and boost love.

 

Finally, let’s look at the last item on the list:

  • End with your toast to the bride and groom

That’s not hard to write….isn’t it? A first grader can even do that. Well, here are some examples culled from both examples.

Example A: ‘’ Now, lets raise our glasses to Toni and Jeremy. Here's to love, laughter, and happily ever after. Cheers!

Funny maid of honor speech for your friend or sister

Example B: ‘’ Now Ladies and Gentlemen, would you all please stand and join me in a toast to Maria and Richard: May your love be like the wind, strong enough to move the clouds, soft enough to never hurt, but always never ending.

To love, laughter, and happily ever after. Cheers!’’

If you have ever been asked to write a best man speech for your friend or brother on their wedding day, then you can be sure to have some sleepless nights whether you have a flair with words or not.

 

Best man speech example for my brother

 

You see, just about anyone can write anything and proclaim from the roof top that their best man speech is all set: which is why you hear several boring best men speeches at most wedding receptions, rehearsal dinner or bachelor’s party.

 

To write a best man speech that is very special, unique and comes from the heart, you have to figure what goes into writing a memorable best man speech for your brother or friend.

 

I know the question on your mind is, how do you go from staring at the blank sheet of paper into organizing your thoughts and ideas into an amazing best man speech.

It’s actually simple, you know. This stuff goes into writing a great best man speech:

  • Prepping yourself mentally
  • Identifying the two kinds of best man speech examples/templates
  • Studying best man speech examples/templates
  • Making the most out of best man speech examples/templates
  • Writing your best man speech using the knowledge gleaned from studying best man speech examples/samples

 

Let’s start with the first idea:

 

Prepping Yourself Mentally To Write Your Best Man Wedding Speech

 

If you have never made a best man speech before, you will certainly feel nervous because of what you’ve heard others say about speaking in public. Well, nervousness isn’t a sign of weakness and that shouldn’t stop from doing your best.

 

Instead, you can channel your fears into confidence by believing in yourself and focusing on the task ahead no matter how you are feeling right now.

 

Holding this positive mental image in your mind for a while will inspire and even embolden you to speak with poise and clarity.

That being said, you can calm your nerves by writing and practicing your best man speech until the wedding is over.

 

 

To do this, you have to do this next:

 

Look For Best Man Speech Examples/Templates

 

There are two kinds. Visual or video best man speech examples and written examples. Best man speech video examples are visual resources that give an idea of what to add and what not to add to your best man speech for your friend or brother.

 

There are so many examples you can find online, but I found these great examples for you. Just watch both video clips and make some notes if you can.

 

Here you go:

Let’s look at the next bullet point:

  • Studying best man speech examples/examples

 

After you have watched a few video clips, you then go on to study a few well-written best man speech examples/samples. Of course, there are so many examples you can find online. But here are some exceptional ones you can study, learn from, and model your best man wedding speech after.

 

I want this part of the write-up to be as interactive as possible. So, let me tell you what I am thinking about right now. I am going to share two examples on this page. For the first one, we will break it down and analyze it so you can figure out what goes into writing a great best man speech.

 

The second example will comprise hints and on the spot assignments to get your speech written fast. Is that okay with you?

 

Ok…thanks…Let’s get started right away by analyzing the first example!

Thoughout both speeches are my comments and writing tips and ideasyou can plug into your own script. The second example is basically designed to help you brainstorm ideas for the content of your presentation. 

 

Here you go:

 

Best Man Speech Example/Template#1

 

First and foremost, I would like to thank hitched.co.uk for posting this on their website. 

 

Good afternoon ladies and gentleman, before I actually begin my speech can I ask The Bride to place her right hand on the table, and Groom can you place your fat fingered, sweaty palm on top of the Brides. Don't worry I'm not going to ask you to sing a duet, knowing that you've both got voices like strangled cats.

Excellent

Can I just ask you all to stand up for me for a moment……………………..

 

[Ask 50% of the audience to raise their hands over there heads with the hands apart. The other 50% to raise their hands over the heads with their hands together]

 

Best man speech example for my friend

 

TAKE COUPLE OF PICS  

Cool, doesn't matter now what I say because I now have proof I got a standing ovation.

 

(Here are my comments/writing ideas you can plug into your own best man speech):

Well, as is the case with best man speeches, Andrew begins by greeting the audience:  ‘’Good afternoon ladies and gentleman’’

In all cases, you have to start your speech by greeting the audience, most of whom have come from far and near to be at your friend’s or brother’s wedding.

So to get your ideas off the ground, please write down a short greeting by getting to know about the audience.

For example, if the bride’s family is travelling from a non-English speaking country, you can learn a few phrases about how to greet the wedding guests in their language and you will get some really good feedback.

 

This is where it gets exciting: See this excerpt:

''before I actually begin my speech can I ask The Bride to place her right hand on the table, and Groom can you place your fat fingered,sweaty palm on top of the Brides. ''

 

(Here are my comments/Ideas you can use for your speech) After you’ve saluted your audience, you have to dive right into your speech as you’ve seen in the example above.

Here are some ways to inject fun and excitement into the opening remarks of your best man speech.

 

First, you can start with a joke. Here's an example you can weave into the content of your best man wedding speech.

''Good afternoon ladies and gentleman, before I actually begin my speech can I ask The Bride to place her right hand on the table, and Groom can you place your fat fingered, sweaty palm on top of the Brides. Don't worry I'm not going to ask you to sing a duet, knowing that you've both got voices like strangled cats.

Excellent

Can I just ask you all to stand up for me for a moment……………………..

[Ask 50% of the audience to raise their hands over there heads with the hands apart. The other 50% to raise their hands over the heads with their hands together]

Cool, doesn't matter now what I say because I now have proof I got a standing ovation.''

 

Second, you can generate some incredible excitement by singing a nice song about the groom and the bride. You can write your own lyrics from a popular song. I really admire the energy of this best man.  You can probably adapt his style.

 



Let’s get back to the speech.

‘’In case some of you don't already know me I'm Andrew, Stacey's best man. ‘’

 

(Here are my comments/ideas to help you write your best man speech for brother or friend):

 

Do you remember what I told you about introducing yourself before you speak? Just look at the above underlined words and see it for yourself.

He takes it to another level by making it funnier. Did you notice how he mentioned his nicknames?

To make your best man wedding speech humorous, you can slot in your own nicknames.

Wait a minute. Does the groom have some cool nicknames too? If so, include it by all means.

 

Here’s an example.

Good evening everyone. For those of you who don’t know me, I am Mike. I am the proud friend of Dan aka Mr. Tomato Paste…..Sorry if you almost fell off your chair when I mentioned his nickname. In the course of the speech, I will let you know why the man of the moment is nicknamed Tomato Paste.

 

Let’s get back to the speech.

 

Commonly known by the Bride as Biatch, trollop, local bike and a few other course names which I probably will be arrested for if I repeat them here today.  However, I can actually forgive all those names if she returns my Barbecue and chairs which she borrowed 6 months ago (just a gentle reminder there again sarah).  I'm also compiling a Search warrant so if any of you have any missing items that these 2 have borrowed I'm happy to add them to the list.

 

You can both lower your arms now and sit down, I just wanted Stacey to have the upper hand over you for the first and last time in your marriage!

 

So, where shall we start, well firstly I'd like to say a huge thank you for attending the best mans party, and can I say a special thank you to Sarah and Stacey for making such an effort and getting dressed up for the occasion!!!  Although I didn't actually know that Primark did Dress Hire.  But you have to agree that she looks absolutely stunning so can we all raise a glass to Primark……..

 

M5

 

(Here are my comments/writing ideas you can slot into your speech): A huge part of your best man speech comprises thanking some personalities and individuals who have played an influential in the lives of the groom and bride.

Now, if we scroll down the page, you will find several words of gratitude to the bridesmaids, etc.

Now, this is what I want you to do. Write down names of people you’d like to add to your wedding speech. You can include figures like the groom’s mom and dad if you are his brother.

You can also express gratitude to the groomsmen, the bridesmaid, maid of honor, your co-best man, etc.

This is my homework assignment for you: Please write down names of individuals you’d like to thank and mention why you are thanking them

 

Let’s get back to the speech.

 

No seriously Sarah you look a million dollars in that beautiful dress and I know that Stacey thinks so too as he told me earlier that you will blend really well with the rest of the kitchen.

To Sarah (raise glass)

Best man speech samples

And to the bridesmaids, who look amazing and have done an excellent job in making this day special for Sarah.

Toast To the Bridesmaids

I have to say it wasn't that much of a shock that I was asked by Stacey to be his best man considering that Sarah made 100 or so annoying calls and text messages to me asking “has he asked you yet, as he asked you yet, honestly he's gonna ask you, and the ultimate “Andrew, Stacey loves you, has he asked you yet” and then “god he's bloody useless”. 

 

So eventually the day came when Stacey plucked up the courage and asked me to be his best man…………………..by “Text Message”…………..2 days ago!!!!

 

(Here are my comments/ideas to help you write your best man speech): As seen above, you can share how you felt when your friend or brother asked you to be his best man if it has a funny twist to it.

The next lines dwell on the groom’s relationship with the best man. We will delve into it in due time.

 

Back to the speech.

 

Anyway, I've known Stacey for about 5 years or so and it really is a pleasure to stand here and call him my “Mate”.  Mates will do anything to help you out and Stacey is no exception. For example Anybody who knows me will know that DIY is just not one of my fortes and I seemed to have a problem with ..… lets just say….a leakage.  No problem, Stacey being Stacey jumps up and sets to work to sort out my plumbing!!!  You see, mates mates mates.

 

He's also a guy of very few words.  I always try to make time through the day to contact mates so I usually email Stacey, you know like you do and ask him how he is and how work is and tell him what kind of a day I'm having, usually crap of course.  And what reply do I get from him…………….”yeah”

 

His work colleagues from what I have also found out describe him as being godlike.  When asked to qualify this they said – they never see you, you make your own rules if you do any work, it's a bloody miracle.

 

Now I understand that most of you here will know Stacey quite well and most of you will also know Sarah quite well, but I thought this would be an ideal opportunity for us all to get to know them a little bit better as a couple.

 

(Here are my comments/take home points for writing your script): From these lines: ‘’ Anyway, I've known Stacey for about 5 years or so and it really is a pleasure to stand here and call him my “Mate”.  Mates will do anything to help you out and Stacey is no exception…to little bit better as a couple’’ we come to appreciate the relationship between the groom and the bride.

 

That’s actually the content of the whole thing. Wondering you can get your ideas flowing when writing about the bonds of friendship with the groom?

 

Here are some pointers with examples culled from this speech and elsewhere.

  • Write down when and how you first got to know the groom

Here’s an example:

‘’Anyway, I've known Stacey for about 5 years or so and it really is a pleasure to stand here….’’

  • Briefly write about how you became his best friend/brother.
  • You may write about your shared interests. For example, if you belong to the same tennis club, you can humorously share how he always outplays you when you are at it.
  • Share how he’s a source of pride and inspiration to you and other close pals
  • If there are some guarded secrets the bride doesn’t know about, you can share a few inoffensive ones and you will get some good laughs.

 

This is your writing assignment/homework: Jot down answers to the five questions and use your responses to come up with the body or content of your wedding speech.

 

Ok…Let’s get back to the speech.

 

For this I have derived a short game of  Mr & Mrs for the newly weds to participate in, so if I could ask the Bride & Groom to stand together back to back – just to avoid seeing each others answers.

Right, all you have to do is simply answer a few simple questions by raising these cards

 

So try to keep your answers as honest as possible, there will be a prize if you manage to match all of each others answers, which is an open bar for you both for the rest of the night and this has been very kindly donated by Alcoholics Anonymous.

  • Test (if required) – Who's the tallest?

 

Right then, here goes, a nice easy one to start with:

  1. When you're on a night out and you both hit the dance floor, who has got the best dance moves?
  2. Which of you would be most likely to forget your anniversary?
  3. Which one of you is likely to go on holiday and leave a personal item at home only to find that a picture of it has been posted on facebook when you return.
  4. Which of you would you say is the most romantic?

 

And finally, a bit of a tricky one.

  1. On your holiday in August last year in Zante, who, after a few glasses of champagne, decided to go skinny dipping in the hotel's indoor pool? And when being caught by hotel staff, then ran naked through the hotel back to your room?

M6 (1)

Can you all please give a big hand to the Bride and Groom for being so sporting.

 

(Again, here are my comments/writing ideas you can weave into your message): I think that game can be played on the wedding day with some slight modifications.

What do you think? You can probably change a few things here and there to suit the bride and groom and your speech will really go down well.  You have to give it a try if you really want your best man wedding speech to stand out from the pack.

 

We are not done yet. Let’s look at how to craft your closing remarks.

 

Let’s get back to the speech. Whilst I still have your attention The Bride and Groom have asked me to read a few cards out

[READ COUPLE OF CARDS]

There's also a couple of telegrams which arrived at the hotel reception this morning.

To Stace we could have been so good together I will miss our nights by the pool – lots of love, Michael Barrymore.

Dear Stacey, congratulations on getting married, and also on winning our big spender of the month award! Lots of love from the dancers at Blue Leopard Pole Dancing Club in Leeds.

 

I'm pleased to say my speech is over now, once again its been an honour to be your best man. I hope you both are fully enjoying your day as much as everyone in this room is.

 

So Ladies and Gentlemen, I would like you all stand for a toast to our newly wed bride and groom Mr & Mrs Dickinson, wishing them all the happiness in the future..

(Here are my comments/writing ideas): It’s the norm for most folks to close with one or more of these well-worn techniques:

  1. Words of congratulation or best wishes
  2. A simple toast

 

There’s absolutely nothing wrong with both closing styles. But, did you know you can your conclusion very impactful, heartfelt and unique?

Here’s how:

  • You can involve the wedding guests by asking a one or a few simple questions about the bride and groom. It should be based on your presentation. Then, you give a few gifts to those who had the right answers. I have never seen this done anywhere. So, what are you waiting for? Just do and people would applaud you for your ingenuity.
  • You can surprise them with a beautiful gift as well.
  • You can end with a beautiful quote. These are my all time-favorites drawn from the movies:

The best love is the kind that awakens the soul and makes us reach for more, that plants a fire in our hearts and brings peace to our minds.
The Notebook

You have bewitched me, body and soul, and I love, I love, I love you. I never wish to be parted from you from this day on.
Pride and Prejudice

I came here tonight because when you realize you want to spend the rest of your life with somebody, you want the rest of your life to start as soon as possible.
When Harry Met Sally

You are the most important thing to me now. The most important thing to me ever.
Twilight

 

Let’s get back to the speech.

[TOAST]

Unfortunately as is usually the case with Sarah, a male NEVER has the final word and I understand that the tablets that shes taking for her tourettes problem have finally kicked in.  So I will leave you with a few words from Sarah.

 

(Here are my comments/writing ideas) : We’ve come to the end of the road so to speak.  But, I have good news for you because it’s fun time! We are going to have some fun flexing our writing muscles. So, grab your notepad and pen and relax as we do these brain stimulation exercises together.

The goal? To easily and quickly write help you write your best man speech even if you don’t know where to start. If you are okay with my analyses of the above speech example, please don’t go any further.

 

If you are eager for more ideas, please read on.

Best Man Speech Sample/Example#2

Please note: Interspered throughout this second sample are few ideas and plenty of assignments to help you brainstorm. So, please grab your pen and notepad as we do this together. 

 

Hi everyone,

 

For those of you that don't know I'm Andy. John was actually best man at my wedding just 6 months ago. At the time we did make a deal that if we we're both good at it then we could do it for each other next time as well so I hope this is good enough!

 

(Question to help you come up with some ideas:) Do you remember how I showed you to write your introductory remarks? The underlined phrases’’For those of you that don't know I'm Andy’’ should give you an idea. So, please write a short one. I hope you can? Don’t belittle yourself because you can! Just go ahead and do it right now.

 

back to the speech.

I actually think that the main reason John picked me was so that when he was stood up at the front here he would have someone stood next to him to make him look taller and thinner! I'm glad I could help!

I thought it would be appropriate if I started the speech like this…

Ladies and Gentlemen, I would like to welcome you on board the wedding of John and Jane. I am Andy and I'll be your bestman for this speech. On behalf of both John and Jane I would like to welcome you to this special day for final leg of the journey from boyfriend and girlfriend to husband and wife.

This speech will be lasting approximately 5 minutes and, with any luck, be including many laughs and stories along the way.

Please be aware that, should the need arise, your nearest exits are here, here and here.

At this time can I ask that you have a full drink in hand and your seats are upright, mobile phones are switched off and that you are sat comfortable as, for one of us, this could be a bit of a bumpy ride!

I would like to start by saying on behalf of the bride and groom, thank you all for your coming today in celebration of their marriage. Jane, your dress is amazing and you are looking exceptional today, and John, well, he's here!

 

(Comments to help you come up with ideas for your speech): Please look over the above bolded words carefully and tell me what you can find. If you mentioned that it’s expression of gratitude to the friends and family of the bride and groom for attending the wedding, then you deserve a pat on the back! Congratulations!

M4 (1)

Can you take it a step further by writing yours? You can do it! Take action now! I believe in you! Just make a few changes to it and presto, you are good to go!

 

I'd also like to say what a wonderful job the bridesmaids have done and how amazing they look as well, so here's a toast to say thank you…

 

(Comments to help you write well):Of course, the bridesmaids have done amazingly well and need to be thanked. But, who else is on your thank you list? Remember what I said earlier about thanking the groom for choosing you to be his best man?

How about the groomsmen? I am thinking about thanking the bride for agreeing to marry your friend or brother? Who else comes to mind? I need you to think about these deeply. Then, write their names and attach a few words of gratitude to each name. I rest my case here.

 

TOAST <the Bridesmaids>

I'm lucky enough to have known both John and Jane for many years since our sixth form days at Stretford Grammar.

 

(Questions to help you brainstorm): There’s a hidden idea here….Hint: Write down the number of years you’ve known the groom and may be the bride. So, you can start this way(as seen above) and go on from there.

 

Let’s get back to the speech.

Like my wife and I, they are a product of the Stretford Grammar common room and John often tells me that, going off the way things seem to work he and Jane seem to be working to a similar schedule to us.

How to write your best man speech

Around 6 months after we got together, John and Jane got together, literally 6 months ago we got married and here we are today with John and Jane getting married. So by my calculations with our baby due in February that means around August next year there might be some good news?

I actually still remember the first time I feel I really got to know John; well I remember parts of it! We'd been out in Manchester and had a few drinks but weren't really enjoying the evening. Luckily, Dave had a free house and, in his words ‘some drink’ that we could have.

 

This sounded like a great idea and so, kebab in hand, the 3 of us headed back to Daves. Sadly I can't tell you much more about that night as we managed to polish off the drink that was promised – and Baby Cham really goes down easily! – and the next thing I remember was Steve snoring downstairs, no one remembering how or when he arrived, and me waking up next to John in bed. He was smiling though so what ever happened must have been fun!

 

Hints to help you jot down your ideas: Just write down where and how you met the groom and how your friendship evolved from there. You may throw in a story or two.  Don’t be shy to pick some great ideas from here since the storyline is quite dramatic.

 

Let’s get back to the speech.

 

Everyone will know John is a quiet and sensible person. In fact I think it's fair to say John's that sensible that he won't play on Fifa on the PlayStation in case he gets injured! Luckily we managed to get him into net for our 5-a-side team, the Stretford Old Boys. I have to say that he was a cracking keeper and probably kept us in the division we were in single handedly, and every so often he used his other hand and his feet and on more than one occasion his face!

 

Well that and the fact that we were in the bottom league so couldn't go any lower! I also think he does hold some records for the team as well. Most ‘Man of the Match’ awards, Most visits to A&E after the game award and also the record as being the only one of us to never score during a game…well…in the oppositions net!

 

Away from the football you can safely assume that if neither John nor Jane are working then they will be either at the cinema watching the latest films or tucking into a Nandos chicken, even back when Jane was a vegetarian!

 

Quite often we'll go as a group and I remember when having a conversation with them at Nandos and completely misunderstanding what they meant by wanting to spice things up! I was thinking about buying them a book on the Karma Sutra, they were thinking of going for a hot marinade instead of lemon and herb!

 

Question time: In the first example, we talked about mentioning the groom’s shared interests. If the couple has similar taste in fashion, music, sports, it makes it much more interesting. So write down what excites the groom the most and pair it with those of the bride and weave in an interesting story and the couple will appreciate your efforts.

 

Here’s an example to get you thinking: 

Renee, you are a beautiful addition to our circle
of friends, and I am so happy to see the two of
you getting married today. It also helps that you
are also a fan of the Lakers and of course,
Prince!

 

I still would have been happy for Cesar
if he’d met a girl who did not like Purple Rain,
but I am certainly much more pleased with the
fact that he did!

 

Let’s get back to the speech.

As a couple I'm sure everyone can see that they are perfect for each.

Can I ask our bride and groom to stand holding an arm out and can John put his hand on top of Jane's for a few moments.

It was a great privilege being asked to be your best man and I hope I haven't let you down. John is my best friend and I'm sure he will make a great Husband and I'm even more sure they will be extremely happy for many a year to come.

 

Comments: I think it will be a great ideas to slot in the highlighted words into your best man speech. What do you think? 

 

Let’s get back to the speech.

You can both lower your arms now and sit down; I just wanted John to have the upper hand over you for the first and last time in your marriage!

And so:

Ladies and Gentlemen welcome to the end of my speech. The local time is <check time> and the weather is <check weather>, however for these 2 the outlook is bright.

For your safety can I ask you remain clapping until I am seated as this will indicate the end of the speech?

Could you check your table for your drink but be aware that it may have moved around in all the laughter.

 

Comments: You may try modeling part of your best man speech for bride and groom after the bolded extract? 

I would like to thank you for choosing to listen and finally could I ask you to raise your glasses.

 

To Mr and Mrs Jones

Ok…my friend, I think you can do this well….Well, if you are still nervous, then I have a good news for you.

Best Man Speech For Brother Or Friend: Proven Tips And Ideas To Help You Write A Great Best Man Wedding Speech For Your Brother Or Friend Even If You Are Very Nervous

 

Making an amazing best man speech for your brother or friend is something every best man should aspire to do when they are asked to deliver a few remarks on the wedding day.

 

However, not many best men get it right. Well, have you ever wondered why some exceptional best man speeches go viral while so many others sink into oblivion as soon as the speaker goes back to their seats?

 

Short best man speech

 

That’s not because the very eloquent speakers are great with words nor have magnetic personalities.

 

While those natural abilities help to an extent, a lot is involved when it comes to writing and delivering a heartfelt best man speech for your brother or friend.

 

To do justice to your speech, you need to get a mental picture of what you want to achieve and stick to that plan from start till the end.  Here’s what I recommend you do if you want to get it right.

Guess what? You just have to follow this simple process and steps:

  • Having a positive mindset
  • Creating an environment for the expression of your ideas
  • Scripting your ideas and tie together the loose ends
  • Practicing your best man speech

 

Let’s look at each idea in detail. Shall we go on?

  • Develop a positive mindset

Let’s start with one problem all best men face and how to overcome it. Guess what the problem is? Nerves!Whenever you imagine speaking before the wedding crowd, your heart will miss several beats and you will be wondering if you have the guts to do that.

 

If you have never made a best man speech before, that feeling might leave you paralyze and you might even wonder if you can really make your friend or brother proud with your wedding speech?

 

Believe it or not, you can do it! You see, whenever you have to deliver any speech, your mind will bring back unpleasant feelings of when you did a terrible job talking to a small crowd.  But you should put the past behind if you really want your best man speech to be a hit.

This, in essence, is the first step to taking control of the situation even before you deliver your best man toast.

 

Now, let’s look at the next idea:

Before you sit to write your speech, you need to create the right environment to help you put your ideas together.

 

If you don’t know where to start or how to get good ideas for the content of your best man speech, it can be quite daunting.

 

But, there’s hope. The easy way out is to watch a few best man speech video clips to get a fair idea of how such toasts are made.

 

There are so many clips on YouTube but I managed to get these really good ones for you! I recommend watching them several times so you can figure how it was scripted before you give yours a try.

Best man speech examples

 

But, first, let’s read through both examples slowly.

 

Here they are:

Best Man Speech Friend Example/Template #1

 

Hello everyone. I’m Jason, and I’m cast today as “Best Man #2” which is a great honor and privilege for me. As many of you may know, I have known Jimmy for a long time. In fact, I first met him when he was just a kid, as I was his teacher. Little did I know that one day, that kid would become one of my closest friends.

 

Jimmy has always been an incredible athlete, and it was no surprise to me when he came back to work as an assistant coach after college. We have been coaching together ever since, and I have seen him grow as a coach and as a person. We also get to chaperone a group of 8th graders to New York and Washington DC every year. And he can tell you, when you look at these kids, you aren’t thinking “one of these kids is going to be my best friend someday.” Believe me!

 

But what can I say, from the moment I met him, Jimmy has been one of the most genuine and authentic people I have ever met. He has always been true to himself, and that is what I admire most about him. He sets goals and works tirelessly to achieve them, whether it is in coaching, college, or his career.

 

But Jimmy's journey would not be complete without Mary, who is one of the final pieces of his life’s puzzle. Mary, you are a beautiful and remarkable woman who has captured the heart of our dear friend. You complement each other in every way, and your love for one another is evident in everything you do.

 

Jimmy is one of the most loyal and dedicated people I know, whether it is with his family, friends, or soon-to-be wife. He has been in my life since my children were born and has been one of their biggest supporters at athletic games over the years.

 

I can't wait to return the favor and be in the stands, cheering on his children one day. And if they aren’t athletes, that’s ok. I’ll be cheering them on in the auditorium as they win for their debate team, or star in the musical, or whatever.

 

Jimmy, my friend, I am honored to stand here today as your best man. You are an incredible person, and I am so grateful for our friendship. Mary, you are a beautiful addition to our circle of friends, and I am so happy to see the two of you getting married today.

M5

It also helps that you are also a fan of the Lakers and of course, Prince! I still would have been happy for Jimmy if he’d met a girl who did not like Purple Rain, but I am certainly much more pleased with the fact that he did!

 

Please remember to always laugh together, never be afraid to cry together, and always stand together against the world. Hand-in-hand the two of you can do absolutely anything. So I say pick “happily ever after” all right?

 

Ladies and gentlemen, let us raise our glasses to Jimmy and Mary, wishing them a lifetime of love, happiness, and success. Cheers!

Best man speech samples

Now, here’s the next sample:

Best Man Speech Friend Example/Template #2

 

I’d like to thank hitched for having this example on their site.

 

Good Afternoon everyone and thank you for coming to this special occasion, it's lovely to see so many friends and family here today. I'm sure you will all agree it's been a fantastic day so far, yet every silver lining does have a cloud, and that is, unfortunately that you've now all got to listen to me ramble on for a while…

 

I did hear there was a sweepstake running on how long this speech was going to be and just so you know, I managed to get 200/1 on an hour and 12 minutes, so I hope you've all been to the toilet, filled your glasses and are all sitting comfortably.

 

Firstly I'd like to start by saying what a wonderful job the bridesmaids have done today and how fantastic they all look. 

They are of course only outshone by Sally, who I think you'll all agree looks absolutely stunning.

I would also like to thank the ushers, for at least turning up relatively sober.  Good job though boys, I'm sure everyone here would have all struggled to find their seats, without the help of the five of you!

 

So for those that don't know me I'm Dave and I've known Andy since we were toddlers…My main aim today is not to embarrass or humiliate the groom, but rather to help you all to get to know him a little bit better.  Although as a disclaimer, I cannot deny that a little embarrassment and humiliation may be on the cards.

 

The first thing a best man is supposed to do in his speech is let everybody from the bride's side know what sort of man Sally has married, so here we go…Andy is caring, loving, funny, charming, generous and…*squint and show card to groom* Sorry mate but I'm struggling to read your handwriting! Well you get the idea anyway, he's a decent bloke.

 

Andy and I have been best friends for many years now, so obviously I have been witness to some of his finer moments.  I've have also, of course, been witness to some of his less fine moments.  And naturally, it's mainly those moments I shall be focusing on today…after all leading up to the wedding, he did say he didn't care what stories were told in this speech. 

 

Even with this in mind, I soon realised that the majority of the stories still fell in to the ‘not fit for public consumption’ category!

 

Naturally, in preparation for writing this speech I consulted his family to see if there were any funny stories from the groom's childhood. John informed me that as a small child when he needed the toilet, he had to go and hide behind the sofa…well, ladies and gentlemen, I can assure you that 20-odd years later, thankfully, he has now grown out of this habit…however his toilet habits can still resemble those of a two year old, as was the case on holiday in Spain last year, when he had a little accident in the middle of the night!

 

Luckily for Sally though, being a dog owner she's quite often carrying a poop-a-scoop around with her so she must be fairly used to clearing up other people's mess!

Andy was the year below me at school and has always told me what an academic genius he is, and in fairness, there's nothing really to suggest to the contrary.

Now that may sound like he was ‘blowing his own trumpet’ and whilst on the subject, Andy used to take trumpet lessons back in school…Rock and Roll I know! Unfortunately for him though, a characteristic of a good trumpet player is that you need the right kind of lips. 

 

I always thought that Andy grew ‘too cool’ to continue his trumpet playing, until a couple of years ago, when Sami reliably informed us that the real reason was because his bottom lip was in fact too big! I'm not sure if she made that bit up though?!

 

Luckily during our time in Tarporley 6th form, myself and Andy discovered a new shared interest in…lager, bitter, cider, vodka, Sambuca…well I think you get the idea!

 

We spent many good times ‘socialising’ in our local public houses and especially enjoying many lock ins with Ahmed and everyone in the Copper Kettle!

M6 (1)

After 6th form we both went our separate ways and whilst I was in Sheffield, Andy went to study in Liverpool.  He enjoyed his first year SO much at University that he decided to attempt it again.  He assures me it had nothing to do with excessive drinking and partying and was purely because he wanted a change in direction.

 

On our return from our time at University, we decided to move in to a rented house in town. I'm sure Sally will agree that Andy isn't the tidiest of people to live with, but we did share some great times whilst living in Handbridge. 

 

Most people like to make their mark on a home, but Andy took this quite literally and one piece of advice I can pass on to Sally that I learnt from my time living with Andy, is never go away for a weekend and leave him with a bottle of Rum punch, especially if you decide to lay cream carpets in your new house!

 

It's rumoured that on the day in question, or should I say the morning after, Andy (and Matthew) were found face down on the living room floor next to a HUGE orange stain. For those who have never drank Rum punch, I'd just like to advise you at this point, that it is fluorescent orange in colour so as you can imagine it's not the easiest stain to get out of a cream carpet and this was confirmed by Chrissy, my mother and also ‘Compentent Carpet cleaners of Chester’. 

 

I think it's safe to say, Andy really made a lasting mark on that house! Seriously though Sally, I think you need to get laminate flooring throughout your new home!

 

Not long after we had moved in together, Andy and Sally went on a blind date. After this first date, I remember Andy telling me that the night they met, there was enough electricity to power the National Grid…in light of them both being accountants, I like to think that what he really meant, was it was enough to power a Casio Calculator!

 

Andy is far from the stereotypical accountant. That said, in the run-up to the wedding he did prepare a spread sheet listing the probability of attendance for each and every one of us. He had Sally down as 100%…which I thought was a tad presumptuous.

 

After a few years together, Andy proposed to Sally out at sea whilst on a holiday in Spain last summer. He chartered a yacht and whilst they were supping Champagne, the boat became surrounded by a pack of dolphins.  A very romantic scene, I am sure you will all agree.

 

Now you may be wondering where this anecdote is leading…well, a lot of you here today may know that Andy's nickname is ‘Clogg’, but what I bet a lot of you didn't know is that Sally has her own pet name for him…*turn to groom* isn't that right DOLPHIN?

 

No seriously, their relationship has obviously blossomed down the years and anyone who has spent any time with you both will agree you make a fantastic couple.

 

The other love in the groom's life is Birmingham City. Being a massive Birmingham City fan, and having held a season ticket for many years now, Andy and his dad often make the trip down to see their beloved Blues on a Saturday afternoon.

 

In fact, he's such a huge fan that he still lets his dad pay for his season ticket, misses the train most weeks and when he does eventually turn up to meet his Dad, he never has any cash on him!

 

Andy and John will travel the length and breadth of the country to watch Birmingham play…as was literally the case the time Andy was getting the train to New Street from Manchester after a night out and ended up waking up in Cheltenham; on the plus side he woke up in time to get off in Cheltenham and return to Brum just in time for thesecond half!

 

Myself and Andy have spent many a holiday together. From our regular trips to Puerto Banus, to our trip to Tokyo, Sydney and Thailand (for Xmas back in 2007). I'd like to tell you these were highly cultural trips filled with museum visits, theatre trips & sightseeing  – however, reminiscing now I can confirm that in fact none of this ever took place & instead our time was mainly spent in hostelries sampling the local liquid delicacies. Each trip was an experience I can tell you.

 

This brings me nicely on to the stag do…well what can I say about the stag do, not a great deal in present company, but I can say we enjoyed a few days in the sun in Barcelona. 

 

I can also let you know that Andy looks fantastic in lycra, he wears a henna tattoo remarkably well, and that Barcelona is in fact one of Boris Johnson's favourite holiday destinations.

 

Anyway that's about as far as I'm willing to go with that, or as far as I remember if truth be told!

Before I let you all enjoy the rest of the day, it's traditional to offer the groom some advice and as I have just mentioned with him being such a huge fan of Birmingham City, you'll be pleased to know that a successful marriage can be compared to football…so Andy… 

–       Ensure you are fully committed every week.

–       Try your best to score every Saturday.

–       Don't put your tackle in too hard as you might get injured.

 

We've had some excellent times together over the years, and I know we will continue to do so in the future.You have been a fantastic friend and it really is a great honour to be your Best Man today and it's been a real pleasure getting to know Sally over the past few years so I wish you both every happiness for the future…

 

I also hope you have a great honeymoon, which I only found out today was spending some time travelling around Asia.  Originally I thought it was in North Wales as Andy told me he was going to Bangor for a week.

 

Just before I make a toast I'd just like to thank all the staff here at Nunsmere hall for their fantastic hospitality today…bar-keep, cue the moment when you need to start pouring me a pint!

 

And on that note, ladies and gentlemen, could I ask you to stand with me, and raise your glasses in a toast to Andy and Sally, the new Mr & Mrs Clegg.

We wish you well for the future and hope they enjoy a long and happy marriage.

To Andy and Sally.

 

Both are great best man speech examples, right? I bet you can write something more captivating than these. To get a hang of it, we first have to split up those best man speeches into these parts:

  • Introductory remarks
  • Body or content
  • Conclusion

 

First, let’s start with the introductory or opening remarks. Let’s cull out the opening remarks of both best man speeches so we can figure out how to write one.

 

Best man speech for friend example#1---(opening remarks)

‘’ Hello everyone. I’m Jason, and I’m cast today as “Best Man #2” which is a great honor and privilege for me. As many of you may know, I have known Cesar for a long time. In fact, I first met him when he was just a kid, as I was his teacher. Little did I know that one day, that kid would become one of my closest friends.’’

Best man speech for brother template#2---(opening remarks)

 

Good Afternoon everyone and thank you for coming to this special occasion, it's lovely to see so many friends and family here today. I'm sure you will all agree it's been a fantastic day so far, yet every silver lining does have a cloud, and that is, unfortunately that you've now all got to listen to me ramble on for a while…

 

I did hear there was a sweepstake running on how long this speech was going to be and just so you know, I managed to get 200/1 on an hour and 12 minutes, so I hope you've all been to the toilet, filled your glasses and are all sitting comfortably….(funny)

 

Both remarks (particularly the second introduction) is pretty amazing. But I guess both are pretty standard, right?

 

This is your homework assignment: Can you write a simple introduction as seen above? Let’s try writing coming up with our own example and let’s see how it goes.

 

As a hint, you may start by writing down names of people you’d like to express gratitude to. If you are the brother of the groom or his best man, you can add your own parents to the gratitude list and mention why you are thanking them.

 

If the best man is marrying a girl from another country where English is not widely spoken, you can probably learn a few self-introductory phrases and you will end up getting some good laughs out of that.

M4 (1)

Before we moved on to other things, let’s look at second portion of the introductory remarks.

 

They come right after the extracts I culled them out from both speeches. You remember?

Ok…Let’s go back and use those same examples.

 

Example #1: ‘’ Cesar has always been an incredible athlete, and it was no surprise to me when he came back to work as an assistant coach after college…

 

Example #2: ‘’ Firstly I'd like to start by saying what a wonderful job the bridesmaids have done today and how fantastic they all look. 

They are of course only outshone by Sally, who I think you'll all agree looks absolutely stunning…

So for those that don't know me I'm Dave and I've known Andy since we were toddlers…My main aim today is not to embarrass or humiliate the groom…‘’

 

If you read both examples, you will realize they come after the introductory remarks. After you have said a few things about who you are, expressed gratitude, and acknowledged the groom for choosing you to be his best man, you have start your best man speech with a captivating hook/opener so that it stands out.

 

You may use or one more of these strategies to come up with a thrilling hook.

  • Start with a little story about how you became friends.
  • If you are the brother of the groom and you’re much older, you can share a story about how you felt when your little brother was born. If you are his younger brother, you may share why and how you look up to him for inspiration and guidance.
  • Another great way to get everyone into your speech is wax poetic or sing about the bride and groom like this talented guy did when his brother was getting married.

 

 

Ok….now, let’s have some fun now: How would you like to start your best man speech? Please write down what suits your personality best and just go with it.

 

Having said that, let’s look at…

How to Write an Outline and Structure for Your Best Man Speech

 

Drafting an outline and structure for your best man speech should be a fairly easy process because this part of your wedding speech highlights what your relationship with the groom and bride has been like all the years.

 

Nonetheless, the problem lies in organizing your scattered thoughts into a very thoughtful piece and that’s something most best men struggle with.

 

To make this part of your best man writing process a breeze, you just have to center your thoughts on these ideas:

  • Share fun and fond memories
  • Write about your shared interests…For example, you belong to the same sports club or you like to dress alike, you went to the same high school or college
  • Write about his personal transformation from the time you became friends
  • Share your thoughts about how he met the bride

 

That’s not all. If you really know about the bride, you may share a few anecdotes about her too and mention how she complements your friend or brother.

 

 

If you really don’t know the bride very well, you can simply say that you are happy that they have found each other.

M4 (1)

That brings me to the conclusion of this piece:

 

How To End Your Best Man Speech With A Bang

 

There are several ways of ending on a resounding note and I am happy to share a few ideas to help you finish strong.

 

First, you can simply end with your best wishes or intentions for the bride and groom as seen in this second example.

And on that note, ladies and gentlemen, could I ask you to stand with me, and raise your glasses in a toast to Andy and Sally, the new Mr & Mrs Clegg.

We wish you well for the future and hope they enjoy a long and happy marriage.

To Andy and Sally.

Second, you can end with a poem or prayer if the couple is religious.

Third, you can frame your speech and gift it to the couple or give them a very thoughtful gift.

Please note: The information collected through the questionnaire is only for the purpose of writing your speech. I wouldn't even need it if I could read your mind. So, your information is very confidential and no one will know about it.

 

Just a reminder of what you pay after it’s duly completed.

You simply pay what you want after you’ve got your beautiful speech.

Why? As you know, the current health and economic crisis have caused severe hardships for most people.

Precious lives have been lost, jobs wiped out and families displaced, leaving everyone wondering what the future holds.

Yet, some grooms are still getting married and their family and friends have to say something about them. 

Nonetheless, not everyone could afford our services even before the pandemic suddenly hit us.

So, we have dropped our normal rates so you can simply pay what you want after you have got your beautiful speech.

Please note: When life gets back to normal, this offer will be scrapped for good.

So, please take advantage of it now even if the wedding day is in the future.

Even though we are going through this crazy time, if you do a poor job at it, your speech will be captured on video, and your friend or brother, family and friends, and other viewers will forever remember what you said and would not attribute your poor performance to the fact there was a deadly disease in town.  

So, please take advantage of it now even if the wedding day is in the future by simply paying what you want after you get your beautiful speech.
