Mother Of The Groom Speech Example/Template

 

Below is the complete speech sample. Please read it carefully and make notes.

 

Good evening and thanks, everyone.

 

Thanks so much for coming to share in the joy and joining of John and Ruth. I am Mary, John's mom. Thanks so much for your support, kind words and generosity.

 

Before I get started, I wanted to take time to thank everyone for helping John and Ruth plan a fantastic.  I know it wasn’t easy, but thank God we have a pretty easy going couple to work with…right?  

 

I also want to thank my sister Evelyn and her husband Jerry for all the hard work they did to make this night amazing.

 

Their marriage brings back nostalgic memories of when Dan and I got married in 1980.

 

As a couple, one of our proudest moments was when we had John, our charming prince. His birth brought so much joy, peace and a sense of belonging.

 

My mind goes back to when several times at night, I’d wake up and look into his beautiful, smiling eyes and be completely overwhelmed with a sense of wonder, joy, and responsibility for my extraordinary child.

 

Growing up, John loved to do rap music, play hockey and write poetry. I’ll never forget how proud I felt when he wrote a mother’s day poem saying how proud he was to have me as his mom.

 

John, you asked me in that poem how I managed to do it all by myself. Many times, I’d wake up when you were fast asleep wondering how I was going to raise you both when your dad passed on and that brought me to tears so many times.

 

I must say it’s been by the grace of God. Plus it has taken the blood, toil, and sweat of an entire village to make you who you really are.

 

Take Jerry who had to sacrifice so much of his time and energy and finances to keep our bodies and soul together.

 

But, I must admit that raising you and Alex hasn't been a smooth ride at all.  Just look at my hair if that doesn’t tell you something.

 

Each day came with his own challenges but I was determined to lay down my life for you so you could become a successful man.

 

Today is the day to rejoice in knowing that my dreams for you have come true.

Today is the day to rejoice in knowing you are getting married to this beautiful woman Ruth.

 

Thanks for being there for me and I am going to miss being at the gym with you. I love you so much.

 

Ruth thanks a lot for being there for John and the entire family all along. I love you and want to thank you for bringing out the best in him. I admire your sense of honesty, empathy, and integrity and I trust that you are going to be an amazing wife and mom.


On this note, I’d like to welcome you and your family into our hearts and home. We love you so much.

 

Today is a very special day for making memories and celebrating your love for each other. I know you have had your own relationship challenges already but I admire how your
collective sense of purpose and willingness to hold on has kept your hearts still ablaze with love's refining fire.

That to me is very crucial to building a formidable marriage.

 

Marriage is a test of real love and you should expect both good and bad times, including some rough storms. Riding through these storms together, leaning on each other for strength and courage as allies, strengthens the marriage bonds.

 

As long as you weather the storms together, your marriage will endure. No matter what, keep your sense of humor and you’ll make it through these storms just fine, with love

 

So, don't forget to still love -it -out so your love for each other grows so strong each and every day.

 

May you come to love each other like never before and may you grow in love so
your kids can feel the warmth that comes from your tender hearts. I wish you both well as you start life together. I love you and God bless you both.

That is a rather short speech. But it is a heartfelt and touching mother of the groom speech any mom can modify for his son’s wedding tribute.

 

Before we break it down, let’s look at another speech resource that can help you write a great wedding speech for your son and daughter-in-law on their big day.

 

Do you have any idea what that is? Mother of the groom speech video. They always complement written examples. They really help if you don’t how to start, where to start, or if you need a spark of writing inspiration to get your ideas off the ground.

 

In the next chapter, I am going to share with you some really helpful video clips you can watch and learn from. So, please grab your notepad and pen and put down some ideas you think you can weave into your presentation as you write your mother of the groom speech.

 

Here they are:

 

Mother Of The Groom Speech Video Example # 1

 



Mother Of The Groom Speech Video Example # 2

 

 

Now, let’s go back to the above mother of the groom speech and see how parts of that example were written.

 

Please go grab your pen and paper and put down any ideas and words you think can help make the writing process a breeze.

 

 

First and foremost, let’s look at the introduction or opening remarks.

 

This Is How To Start Your Speech As Mother Of The Groom

 

(Here are excerpts of the intro) Good evening and welcome everyone.

 

Thanks so much for coming to share in the joy and joining of John and Ruth. I am Mary, John's mom. Thanks so much for your support, kind words, and generosity.

 

Before I get started, I wanted to take time to thank everyone for helping John and Ruth plan a fantastic.  I know it wasn’t easy, but thank God we have a pretty easy going couple to work with…right?  

 

I also want to thank my sister Evelyn and her husband Jerry for all the hard work they did to make this night amazing.

 

As you may know, the opening remark of any speech serves two purposes:

  • Capture the attention of the wedding guests
  • Relieve you from nervous tension/breaks the ice

 

Again, it comprises of elements like greetings and a short self-presentation and expression of gratitude as you can see above.

 

It’s so surprising that some moms grab the microphone and they don’t bother to tell everyone who they are. That's so wrong. 

 

You don’t have to take that for granted even if it’s at a small wedding because not everyone might know who you are. It’s a standard wedding protocol.

 

After saluting the audience, you can thank everyone for coming. As you do that, you also  have to acknowledge key persons who have helped you raise your son because it takes an entire village to raise a child.

As an example, you can say this:

''I would like to take this moment to thank Mike and Lisa – my parents – who helped both Alex and I get a strong start in life, and for the love and support all these years.

I would like to give a shout out to Aunt Murry -- who was unable to make it today – who cared for Tyson when I started college.

I am also grateful to Parks – my daughter’s father. He entered Dan’s life when he was 5 and has been an important part of his life. Many things Dan enjoys, from fly fishing to sushi, are a result of Park's influence.''

What to say at my sons wedding

 

Now, let’s move on to another part of your mother of the groom speech.

 

(Again, here’s an excerpt from the body) Their marriage brings back nostalgic memories of when Dan and I got married in 1980.

As a couple, one of our proudest moments was when we had John, our charming prince.

His birth brought so much joy, peace, and a sense of belonging.

 

My mind goes back to when several times at night, I’d wake up and look into his beautiful, smiling eyes and be completely overwhelmed with a sense of wonder, joy, and responsibility for my extraordinary child.

 

(Comments/writing ideas you can plug into your script)Another key thing that makes all speeches beautiful is when you include fond memories. This is the heartbeat of all great speeches.

Memories like how you felt when your baby boy was born particularly if it’s a good one. So, this is what I would encourage you to do right now.

Ask yourself how the early years were like. If he’s your first child, then you can write down how he made you a very proud mom or how he filled your life with a sense of joy and belonging.

 

Now, let’s consider another aspect of it.

 

(Taking cues from the above example) Growing up, John loved to do rap music, play hockey and write poetry.

I’ll never forget how proud I felt when he wrote a mother’s day poem saying how proud he was to have me as his mom.

John, you asked me in that poem how I managed to do it all by myself. Many times, I’d wake up when you were fast asleep wondering how I was going to raise you both when your dad passed on and that brought me to tears so many times.

I must say it’s been by the grace of God. Plus it has taken the blood, toil, and sweat of an entire village to make you who you really are.

Take Jerry who had to sacrifice so much of his time and energy and finances to keep our bodies and soul together.

But, I must admit that raising you and Alex hasn't been a smooth ride at all.  Just look at my hair if that doesn’t tell you something.

Each day came with his own challenges but I was determined to lay down my life for you so you could become a successful man.

 

(comments/take-home writing points):  Have you noticed how the writer was able to infuse her emotions into those memories as she narrated them?

Recalling incidents without personalizing them won't take you anywhere....never ever forget this

 

Here’s How To Come Up With Good Ideas For The Body Of Your Mother Of The Speech

 

  • Put down funny memories you recall
  • Put down in chronological order how his formative years were like. Feel free to pour your heart onto the white sheet with a view to picking anecdotes you feel you can use for your own speech.
  • Also, write down his hobbies or favorite past times. Did you notice how Jerry’s love of writing proved useful on special occasions?

 

We are not done yet. We still have some ''rivers'' to cross, so to speak. So, let's move on.

 

''Today is the day to rejoice in knowing that my dreams for you have come true.

Today is the day to rejoice in knowing you are getting married to this beautiful woman Ruth.''

 

(Comments/take-home writing points): Another thing you should consider is expressing how you feel about your son's big day in relation to his life story just as this writer has done.

She deliberately uses the word ''today'' to create a musical effect. Probably she wanted to entertain the wedding guests and her readers. Repetitions of words make great speeches what they really are.

Please note that if you will be embarrassing your son and yourself if you dwell on the negative, so please don’t comment on any embarrassing story.

 

You can give remarks that show how proud you are of him. For example, you can say:

You have been my pride and inspiration and I am so happy that you’ve grown from that baby I doted on into a very wonderful young man and getting married makes me…

Got it?

 

(Here’s another extract) Thanks for being there for me and I am going to miss being at the gym with you. I love you so much.

 

Ruth thanks a lot for being there for John and the entire family all along. I love you and want to thank you for bringing out the best in him. I admire your sense of honesty, empathy and integrity and I trust that you are going to be an amazing wife and mom.

 

Mother of the groom wedding speech

On this note, I’d like to welcome you and your family into our hearts and home. We love you so much.

 

(comment/take-home writing points) : Noticed how the speaker used the opportunity given to express her joy that Ruth is now part of the family.

 It doesn't end there. She goes on to formally welcome her into her family. You have to do that if you’re speaking on behalf of your entire family)

We are almost getting to the end of this post…. So; let’s move on because I only want the best for you.

 

This Is…

How To Conclude Your Mother Of The Groom Speech

 

Today is a very special day for making memories and celebrating your love for each other.

 

I know you have had your own relationship challenges already but I admire how your
collective sense of purpose and willingness to hold on has kept your hearts still ablaze with love's refining fire.
That to me is very crucial to building a formidable marriage.

 

Marriage is a test of real love and you should expect both good and bad times, including some rough storms.

 

Riding through these storms together, leaning on each other for strength, and courage as allies strengthens the marriage bonds. As long as you weather the storms together, your marriage will endure. No matter what, keep your sense of humor, and you’ll make it through these storms just fine, with love

 

So, don't forget to still love -it -out so your love for each other grows so strong each and every day.

May you come to love each other like never before and may you grow in love so
your kids can feel the warmth that comes from your tender hearts.

 

I wish you well and God bless you.

 

(comment/take-home writing points): Never, ever forget to end with advice or words of encouragement or well-wishes to the happy couple as you see above. That’s how to write your mother of the groom speech.
