Were They Right And Your Daughter Wrong?

Michelle didn’t like the idea of asking her dad to give a father of the bride wedding speech on her wedding day.


She knew her dad didn't have the guts to speak confidently, let alone face the wedding guests.

 

Her dad had told her countless times that public speaking wasn’t his thing as he had a rather unpleasant experience when called to say some words before his class in grade 6.

 

She knew dad might turn down her request even if she managed to cajole him into giving a father of the bride wedding speech.

Even though she didn't want to, she was rather conflicted as she'd heard from friends and family that her dad was the first person to give a speech on her special day.

 


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


After a lengthy chat with Mike, he agreed to her proposal because he didn't want to let her baby girl down. But the old man was very nervous as deer in the headlight as the wedding day drew near.

He just didn't know what to say, neither was he fully aware of the etiquette involved in delivering a memorable speech. 

 

One sunny day,  he went to sit by a calm lake to reflect on what to say and what not say and it was here that he found answers to the questions he'd been thinking of.

 

While seated on a wooden bench, he spotted afar off someone he thought he admired but had never had the chance to meet in person. To his blissful surprise, he realized it was a local TV anchorman that was a renowned public speaker.

 

''Thank God, I have met him'', he muttered as he strode off in his direction. After they exchanged pleasantries, he asked for his help.

 

''You can make it, Mike. Just relax and start your speech with a good joke or something similar and it will break the ice '' he assured him. Michelle’s dad took advantage of their brief encounter and what he learned turned things around dramatically.

 

On the wedding day, he grabbed the mic from the master of ceremonies after being called to speak and began with these words: 

 

''Bonsoir Madames et Messieurs.Vous etes Bienvenue...Then he added:  Good evening and welcome everyone.'' 

 

The groom's family was French and his opening remarks absolutely won their hearts. Everyone was simply stunned by his eloquence in French and how he began his speech so beautifully.

They were in awe and everyone gave him warm applause before he resumed his speech. Someone who had traveled all the way from France actually thought he was French. 

At the end of his toast, he got so many compliments that her daughter almost melted with joy and pride when she hugged him tightly.

Let This Thing Count If You Want To Be Complimented


How you start your speech will contribute to making your speech a hit or not. 

A good opening or introduction will not only endear you to the wedding guests, but also break the ice so you can speak with poise, flair, and confidence. 

 

Remember, first impressions are always golden. Granted, here are tips and tricks to help you give an introduction that will earn you the respect of the audience.

 

If you are going to speak at an interracial wedding as Mike did, you could take the pains to learn how the other family greets in their language.

 

For instance, if your daughter is marrying a German, you can learn to say good evening or good afternoon and weave it into your message. What if I don't know anyone who can give me lessons in German? 

 

You need not worry. You can simply look it up in the search engines or ask the groom to help you. If he can’t speak his mother tongue, he can still ask his family for help.

 

Having gotten help from him, you should try pronouncing the words your own way. Your pronunciation or articulation doesn't have to be perfect because how you say it might ultimately make your delivery fun and exciting. 

 

THREE

 

  • You might also decide to begin with a quote on marriage or your personal reflections on it.


To bring out the creative genius in you, you can render your introduction in song. Take for instance the lyrics of this popular 1961 love song by Ben E. King

 

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

 

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

 

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

 

Here's How To Do Just That!

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

 

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

 

Got the picture?  You can model your speech after that and everyone will love your speech because you will be doing something that's so unique.

 


Have You thought About Asking The Guests Questions?

By commencing your father of the bride wedding speech with a question, the audience will be more receptive to your message and you'll build rapport for that.

 

An example is: Ladies and gentlemen, how would you feel if you have to give away your only child? Well, I am filled with mixed emotions because of ...

 

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

 


Have You Seen This Example Too?


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


Comedian and Storyteller Garrison Keillor's once said that the father of a daughter is nothing but a high-class hostage.

 

That’s true because a father turns a stony face to his sons, berates him, shakes his antlers, paws the ground, snorts, runs them off into the underbrush, but when his daughter puts her arm around his shoulder and says,'' Daddy, I need to ask you something,'' he feels like a pat of butter in a hot frying pan.

 

But when his daughter tells him that she has found the man of her dreams, he freezes like ice because...

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

 

Well, I want to make things fairly easy for you, so let's look at this short example by King Carl Gustaf XVI  of Sweden when his daughter tied the knot! You can watch the video below to get a feel for it. Mind you, his message is in Swedish. 

The good news is I was able to find a transcript of his speech in English....See below

 

 

His speech in English: 

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

(comments/writing ideas): It is mandatory to start your address by greeting the guests and that's what it's portrayed here.

 

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

 

(comments/writing ideas): Some couples decide to give separate talks. But if you want to do a joint speech, then you should do so on behalf of your wife as clearly stated above....''On behalf of my family...''

 


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

 


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

 

It is, however, an unavoidable consequence of your decision that the ties to your parents thus will be changed. From now on, your first loyalty will be to one another.

 

We as parents take joy in the affection by which you look at each other. But — as so many parents before us have experienced — the joy of seeing one's children standing on their own to build their families, is also spiced with a touch of grief..

(comments/writing ideas): You have to share how you feel about the occasion and giving your daughter away as depicted above

 

Speech for my daughter on her wedding day

 

Dear Victoria!

You are the successor to the throne of Sweden. It is a mission that comes with duties and responsibilities. And it is with pride and gratitude I have seen you grow into this role.

 

One day you will — because so it is stated in our constitution — succeed me as the head of state of Sweden. My mind is put at ease when I see the wisdom and determination by which you prepare yourself for this task.......

 

Our relation is, however, deeper than that between a monarch and his successor. I am your father. You are my beloved daughter.

 

No one should believe anything else than that my highest wish has always been — and is — to see you happy......

(comments/writing ideas): Your words won't create the desired impact if you don't tell her how proud you are of her

 

 

Dear Daniel!

 

On behalf of the Queen and myself, I would like to welcome you most warmly into our family. We would also like to congratulate our daughter on her choice of husband. And we — your parents-in-law — congratulate you on your choice of wife.

 

We have got to know you as a very ambitious and skillful entrepreneur. I have often been impressed by the purposefulness and the go-ahead spirit which you have shown. And we have with approval noticed the energy and determination by which you have been preparing yourself for your mission as Prince Consort. That is: to give your wife, the Crown Princess, support and confidence.

 

We are also delighted to have made the acquaintance with your parents Eva and Olle Westling as well as your large and lovely family.

(comments/writing ideas):  After talking about the bride, you have to give a few remarks about the groom and his family.

 

Dear Victoria and Daniel!

The Queen and I, Prince Carl Philip and Princess Madeleine would like to congratulate you and wish you all the best. On your walk through life together, you can always count on our support and affection. And we pray that God Almighty always will be merciful to you.

Finally, I would like to propose a toast to — and that we all raise a cheer for — the Crown Princess and Prince Daniel, our beloved and beautiful bridal couple.

Four cheers for them!

 

(comments/writing ideas): That's how most speeches are concluded. So feel free to borrow a few words you feel will be appropriate for your closing lines.
