Before you do, please grab ya paper and pen and jot down anything that you feel you can incorporate into your own speech.

 

Father speech for groom and bride

 

Now, Here You Go!

 

Good evening and welcome everyone.

I’m John, Dan’s dad and it gives me great joy and honor to see the smiling faces of so many people who love and cherish my son, the bride and both families.

 

We have waited for months for this special time and would like to thank everyone, especially Michelle’s family, who has flown all the way from South Africa to share in our joy and happiness.

 

Back in 1980, when Dan, our precious little gem was born, we were the happiest parents on earth.

 

Very determined to be one of the greatest parents ever, we would spend, what seemed like hours, just adoring and playing with the precious gift God had blessed me with.

What was in store for him for the rest of his life, of course, we just couldn’t figure out.

 

But, I had a dream that someday, Dan would grow up into a happy, loving, loyal, responsible, and compassionate human being.

 

But, I knew it was our responsibility to make that happen since what you give back to your children is what they give back to the world and the next generation. 

And so we gave him unconditional love, hoping that he, too, would share his love with others.

 

Watching Dan mature into a fine young man like a fragrant flower in bloom as the years whizzed by was my greatest joy ever.

 

Dan, I stand here in front of you today, the proudest dad that ever lived because you are the fulfillment of our cherished dreams.

 

Deep down in my heart, I know I have done my very best to be your dad. Being your dad is a joy and privilege and I want you to know I love you so much.

But, as you are pretty much aware, there are so many decisions the most caring dad can’t make for his son no matter the depth of his love.

And so, I prayed and hoped that you would act like a sage every step of the way.

 

When you became best friends with Michelle, I had this comforting assurance that you had met the love of your life and I’m so excited that you’ve found such a dignified woman.

 

And to you Michelle, we are thankful that you agreed to marry Dan.  If there were ever one person in this entire world I could pick for him, it would be you and only you.

 

We are blessed that you now are a part of our family and we know you’re going to be an amazing wife seeing you’re a thoughtful, sensitive and loving person as well.

 

On this note, I’d like to welcome you into our family with open arms and we know that the new bonds of friendship forged will wax stronger in the years ahead.

 

ADDRESSES COUPLE

What makes me even more excited for both of you is the fact you both have this keen sense of humor that will help a great deal when difficulties arise.

 

Your marriage like all others will certainly have its share of conflict, frustration, boredom, unresolvable arguments, slammed doors and even nights when one person sleeps on the couch and the other on the bed but what I want you to bear in mind is that we don’t worry marry the person we can live with. 

Rather, we marry the person we can’t live without.

What should the father of the groom include in his speech

So, you have to let go quickly if you find yourselves entangled in that situation.

Guess what? The smartest investor that ever lived will tell you over and over again that all kinds of investment options can be very risky.

 

But, that’s not the case when you decide to invest in loving each other till the end of time.

Loving each other each day of your lives like there’s no tomorrow is the fail-proof investment every couple can ever make given that love never fails.

 

Yes, it never fails.

So, always invest your time and energy in making each other happy. In making each other laugh when times are tough and in making each other feel loved.

 

Unconditional love will keep your souls very much intact and alive and will also be your safety net you have an empty nest.

I look forward to a life of pure joy for both of you and I want you to experience life to the fullest. 

I look forward to babies (if that’s in the cards), and babies, babies.

 

Never mind if they are uncountable as the stars because I will be there to give them my boundless love and support.

God bless you and I wish you the very best.

 

How would you grade this? It's perfect, right?

And oh by the day, this is another great dad of the groom speech example you can watch over and over again for a few ideas.

Please press play if you want to. If not, skip it and continue reading.

Now, let me ask you…Can you give a short and sweet father of the groom speech like that example or even what you just saw? 

 

Here’s How It’s Done

By the way,  I promised to help you with this, so, let’s take each part of the speech so we can figure out the ideas that were employed. 

 

First, let’s look at the introduction or opening lines of this speech. Here's a recap

 

'' Good evening and welcome everyone.

I’m John, Dan’s dad and it gives me great joy and honor to see the smiling faces of so many people who love and cherish my son and the entire family.

We have waited for months for this special time and would like to thank everyone, especially Michelle’s family, who has flown all the way from South Africa to share in our joy and happiness.'' 

 

My comments/ writing ideas: On this same blog, I taught about the importance of starting your delivery memorably and that's what you see exhibited here.

The writer weaves into his opening lines the essential elements of a good opener and they include

  • greetings based on when the wedding reception or rehearsal is happening
  • his name and relationship to the groom and bride
  • expression of gratitude to the guests for coming from far and near

 

Please note: There are a couple of other things he could have added to enrich his intro like:

  • Thanking the bride’s family for welcoming his son into their family because the father or mother of the bride might have spoken before he did.

 

I know you might want to ask:

What if I will be delivering this speech at the rehearsal and not at the reception?

 

In that case, just thank the bride’s parents for their love and support without commenting about their speeches since it's not customary for the parents of the bride to deliver one at the rehearsal dinner. Though, some are deviating from the norm. 

 

As part of your introduction, you can thank those who helped you raise your son as well as seen below

 

''I would like to take this moment to thank Simon and  Amanda – my parents who cared for Dan and for the love and support all these years, etc.''

 

There are other family members and friends you can add to the gratitude list.

Enough said for that. Please, let’s move on to the main speech.

 

Don’t Joke With This

 

First, let’s cover part 1 of the body. Here's an excerpt 

''Back in 1980, when Dan, our precious little gem was born, we were the happiest parents on earth.

Very determined to be one of the greatest parents ever, we would spend, what seemed like hours, just adoring and playing with the precious gift God had blessed me with.

What was in store for him for the rest of his life, of course, we just couldn’t figure out.''

 

My comments/ writing ideas:  The writer masterfully kick starts his speech by capturing the attention of the guests when he says...

Back in 1980, when Dan, our precious little gem was born as he uses the storytelling approach of engaging the audience from the onset.

 

Suppose, you want to adapt this storytelling approach, then you’ve got put down memories of how you felt when your son was born.

 

I recently wrote a speech for a very wonderful man and he asked that I include a funny incident when he was expecting the arrival of his first child. He was so nervous like a frying fish in hot oil that he had totally forgotten where the family was parked cat when it was announced that he had to move his car to let someone drive out. 

 

That memory made his father of the groom's speech so nice and special and the guests really enjoyed every minute of it.  Sit back and see if you can recall the day he was born and write it down. Why not speak to his mom if your memory is like a goldfish?

Ok, let's get to part 2 of the body. Again, here's a short summary

 

''But, I had a dream that someday, Dan would grow up into a happy, loving, loyal, responsible, and compassionate human being.

But, I knew it was our responsibility to make that happen since what you give back to your children is what they give back to the world.

And so we gave him unconditional love, hoping that he, too, would share his love with others.

Watching Dan mature into a fine young man like a fragrant flower in bloom as the years whizzed by was my greatest joy ever.''

 

My comments/ writing ideas: You can infer from the above extract that Dan's dad is so proud of him. Now, sit back and ask yourself why you are so proud of your son. You can simply mention his accomplishments or even state that you are ecstatic that he's found the love of his life.

 

Ok, let's look at other parts of this narrative. 

 

''Dan, I stand here in front of you today, the proudest dad that ever lived because you are the fulfillment of our cherished dreams.

Deep down in my heart, I know I have done my very best to be your dad. Being your dad is a joy and privilege and I want you to know I love you so much.

But, as you are pretty much aware, there are so many decisions the most caring dad can’t make for his son no matter the depth of his love.

And so, I prayed and hoped that you would act like a sage every step of the way. When you became best friends with Amanda, I had this comforting assurance that you had met the love of your life and I’m so excited that you’ve found such a dignified woman.''

 

My comments/ writing ideas:  To come up with good ideas to enable your narration to flow like a peaceful stream, you should write down answers to these simple questions.

  • Why are you so proud of your son?
  • What were your dreams for him growing up?
  • Why were you excited when they became best friends?

 

The game's not over yet...so let's look at this critical part of the speech.

 

''And to you Amanda, we are thankful that you agreed to marry Adam. If there were ever one person in this entire world I could pick for him, it would be you and only you.

We are blessed that you now are a part of our family and we know you’re going to be an amazing wife seeing you’re a thoughtful, sensitive and loving person as well.

On this note, I’d like to welcome you into our family with open arms and we know that the new bonds of friendship forged will wax stronger in the years ahead.''

 

My comments/ writing ideas: After you have said something about your son, you have to talk about your daughter-in-law too. Here, you can about her admirable qualities and how you felt when she became your son's best friend.

 

Someone asked me the other day, what if you know very little or even nothing about her?  Great question… I am glad that the fellow asked it.

 

In that case, you have to be honest by making a statement like:

''Every woman deserves to love and be loved, respected, care for and am happy you've found someone who really loves you. ''

 

The speech sample continues...

 

''What makes me even more excited for both of you is the fact you both have this keen sense of humor that will help a great deal when difficulties arise.

Your marriage like all others will certainly have its share of conflict, frustration, boredom, unresolvable arguments, slammed doors and even nights when one person sleeps on the couch and the other on the bed but what I want you to bear in mind is that we don’t worry marry the person we can live with.

Rather, we marry the person we can’t live without.

So, you have to let go quickly if you find yourselves entangled in that situation.

Guess what? The smartest investor that ever lived will tell you over and over again that all kinds of investment options can be very risky.

 

But, that’s not the case when you decide to invest in loving each other till the end of time. Loving each other each day of your lives like there’s no tomorrow is the fail-proof investment every couple can ever make given that love never fails.

 

Yes, it never fails.

 

So, always invest your time and energy in making each other happy. In making each other laugh when times are tough and in making each other feel loved.

Unconditional love will keep your souls very much intact and alive and will also be your safety net you have an empty nest.

I look forward to a life of pure joy for both of you and I want you to experience life to the fullest. 

I look forward to babies (if that’s in the cards), and babies, babies.

Never mind if they are uncountable as the stars because I will be there to give them my boundless love and support.

God bless you and I wish you the very best. ''

 

My comments/ writing ideas:  As you can see, you should end with a piece of advice or you can simply wish the happy couple well or even add a verse from the bible to end it if you are a Christian. 

 

P.S: Most dads do this...Have you considered it? Want to write and give a great wedding speech like the one above but can't seem to get started because you don't know the exact words to use?
