Want to give the best father of the bride speech ever but can't seem to get started?

The following ideas and advice will help you develop a good structure for your toast, so let's begin by looking at what goes into preparing a great speech for your daughter. 

 

First, Choose What Suits You Best

Part of making a great father of the bride speech is picking a style and that's what you should really consider before putting your ideas together on a piece of paper.

Depending on your personality, you can choose to write in a witty style, intelligent, dramatic, tender, poetic, rhythmic, narrative, and even funny.

Being a speech writer, I have come to realize that most dads like to give sentimental and funny speeches.

By the way, the guests are able to relate to your speech if you go for a style that reflects who you truly are and not what you think the guests will like you to do.

 

Father of the bride toast short and sweet to a daughter on wedding day

Put your wedding speech in your own words because there is no one like you- you are the first and last of your own kind. So,let your personality shine through it. It makes your work original and close friends and family will know that you are not delivering something fabricated.

 

What’s more, your daughter will appreciate your effort to making her day special by finding the creative style unique to you.

 

After you have picked your style, write down in a place you won’t forget how you want your speech to sound like.

 

Then start writing your speech.  How so?

 

Ok, first and foremost,  you can do that by putting yourself in the mood and that usually involves watching an amazing dad of the bride speeches videos like this one to get your creative juices flowing. So, click on the play button to watch it more than once if you like.

 

 

That was a superb delivery, right? It is and no wonder it was covered by most newspapers around the world. Well, you can model your speech after that clip if you really think it resonates with what you have in mind.

 

If it doesn't, then, this short by very effective example can help you do justice to your presentation. Ok, here’s a short example from a father to her daughter.

 

Good evening ladies and gentlemen, what a privilege, what a thrill,

what an extraordinary feeling of happiness my daughter’s marriage

has created in our family(comments/writing ideas: the speaker greets and shares his sentiments about his daughter’s wedding.)

 

It represented the many changing scenes of life and the joy parents experience when their children find the love of their lives. (comments/writing ideas: he still expresses his emotion here about the thrill of seeing a daughter get married)

 

 

Michelle, when you first came into our lives, we were so happy and blessed.

So much has happened already. Now, there are two worlds – possibly even more - which from now on you will explore together, side by side with your husband and it’s a reality no woman can avoid.  

 

The joy and strength you’ll give John is like the sun in the daytime which, with its radiance, melts all doubts and darkness on earth and like the moon at night, your deeds should shine with a watchful and delicate beam of gentleness, which extinguishes the mischief and deceit used by the symbols of darkness.

 

(comment/writing ideas:  Having said something about her birth and her life as she was growing up, you have to say why you think she will be an amazing wife and that's exactly what this writer has done)

 

John, I have never met a person with more strength than you,
I have never met a person with such a big heart as you,
I have never seen a man with such an inner beauty as you,

You radiate an irresistible mix of wisdom and beauty, charm and decisiveness.
You are irresistible and powerful, sparkling and playful, and serious all at once.

 

We know that you have overcome so many challenges in your young life and i really admire you for that. (comment/writing ideas: talk your son- in- law too and advise him or say something thoughtful about him as you can see above)

 

On this note, we welcome you into our family with open arms and great joy. We’ve come to know you, and we have seen how your cheerful disposition graces every act.

 

We’re also delighted to have made the acquaintance with your parents.(comment/writing idea: never ever forget to welcome the groom into your family in any wedding speech you’ll ever give as father of the bride)

Though you belong to each other, we’ll always pray for you and you can always count on our support. We wish you well and the almighty God keep you safe and sound!  

 

Can you write something better than that? I am sure you can!

 

Shshs

 

To write something like what you just read, you have to make a rough outline of your speech by deciding how you want it to flow.

 

It typically follows this order:

  • Greetings and short self-presentation and thank the guests for coming, their gifts, and sincerely compliment them

 

An example being

Good evening and welcome everyone. I am Mike, dad of the bride

 

Then, design bullet points for the body of your speech and some key points to take home here include

  • Memories of when she was born
  • What she was like when she was growing up
  • Any trips or adventures you both embarked on
  • Funny anecdotes or stories about her life

 

After you created your framework, review a well written sample speech so you get an idea of how best to put your scattered thoughts together.

If you’re not pressed for time, you can put it away after you're done writing the first draft and later revise a second or even a third time.

 

By the way, Father of the bride speeches vary per culture, ethnicity, race, religion, social class and creativity. A sketch of the father of the bride speech shown below shouldn’t be used as the rule.

 

Rather the order can be changed to suit your personal style, ethnic background or social class. The sketch is more of a speech guideline to enable you think outside the box.

 

If you feel like adding other items which you believe would add a unique touch, don’t hold back: It’s important that you ask the opinion of a close family member like your wife or your parents if you want to do so. 

Speech from father to the bride on her wedding day that's best

You Can Use This Father of the Bride Speeches Sketch Below

 

Start by telling briefly who you are, not everybody knows that. Remember, it’s about her(not you) so never assume the guests know you are. It’s only proper you re-introduce yourself even if it’s a very small wedding.

 

Welcome and thank the wedding guests for coming and sharing the joy of the day. Compliment their looks too.

 

Compliment your daughter and tell the guests how much she means to you and your wife. Talk about her character, job, hobbies and achievements.

 

Talk about your son-in-law and your impressions of him. Please put him in a positive light. His character, skill, passion and achievements can also be talked about.

 

From experience, most dads prefer to write about qualities of the groom that’s key in marriage like endurance, love, steadfastness, trust, commitment, etc. There was a time a father wrote to me and said that he didn’t know nothing about the groom and that got me thinking.

 

If you don’t know much about him or even nothing at all, please don’t put that across.

Instead, this example can serve as a guide.

 

John, it’s every dad’s dream that their daughter gets married to someone who loves her just as we do.

Whenever Amanda talks about you, her face lit up like the summer sun and that’s a sure sign that she loves you more than anything else.

 

Did you notice how I did ? That’s one of the ways to do that.

After you’ve said something about your future son-in-law, welcome him into the family and thank his parents for their love and support.

You may wrap up by giving a few words of advice.

 

Once, I was writing a speech for one of my clients and he said he wasn’t married. So, I asked him if he wanted to advise the couple and he humorously made a point that ''an advice is something you’ve paid for.''

 

He wasn’t a single man by choice though, and he felt it will be odd to throw that in.

 

So, I ended up adding the following lines to his conclusion:

I am sure you will keep loving each other till the end of times.  We could not be more proud of both of you. God bless you

 

Father of the Bride Speeches always end with a toast to the health, peace, wealth and success of the bridal couple.

You can ask your wife or her mom to propose the toast if you decide to do a joint speech and that will be very commendable.

By the way, here are ideas you can consider if you want your speech to be unique and memorable

First,  you can ditch the traditional ways of delivering speeches, and go for something original like Laura's father did on her wedding day last year...I simply can't stop watching this amazing video!

 

 

Again,you can render your speech in poetry or make part speech, part song. Here’s a short piece if you decide to make yours poetic:

Just yesterday, you were like a treasure gift wrapped in warm blankets

You suddenly became the sun in our dark corners

The next thing we knew you were like fireworks

Every move you made, made us proud

 

But tonight, as you made that significant walk

Tears of gratitude bubbled up in me and something whispered into my ears and said:

The baby girl you once adored is now someone’s baby girl.  I know not even an eternity can break the love your mom and I have for you

 

But, we take consolation in the fact that Dan loves you just as we do and we wish you both a long and happy marriage.

May your worries be less and joys many.

May you find joy in each other’s company

 

My darling, I always tell you that there are ups and downs in life

Just as you two go through life, you will experience same but always know that after rain comes the sun

We love you both and God bless you.

 

P.S---Can you come up with a great speech like the one above? As the father of the bride, everyone will be on the lookout for your great speech and you can't let the bride and her husband, friends, and family down by giving an ordinary speech.

By getting onboard our speech program, you can give the best speech of the day with poise and confidence without lifting your finger-even if you have much experience or not.

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

''Hey Dan, I just wanted to thank you once again for the speech you wrote with me. My goal was met afterward, I was told by many "what a beautiful speech" and received a standing ovation. I couldn't have done this without you. God Bless Dan!-'' Glen, U.S.A
