Tina was in the delivery room when her Margaret, her only daughter was due for her first child.

 

After delivering a cute baby girl, Margaret slipped into a peaceful coma and her mom had to take care of the little girl.

Grandma Tina was happy to do so because she had always looked forward to having two daughters but she wasn’t lucky and it felt more like a dream come true.

She loved Hillary so much that she was very adamant to go back to her mom when she got back on her feet. So, both mom and daughter agreed that the little active girl could stay in granny’s place for a little longer.

 

She ended up staying under her roof from middle school through college and occasionally went home to see her own family.

Having graduated from college and found a job, she met the man of her dreams and before they tied the knot, she asked her grandmom to give a speech.

 

Grandma Tina almost fell off her seat when she heard she was going to speak before a small group of people. She had never given one her whole life and that made it even more terrifying.

 

Thankfully, she read the tips I am going to share with you pretty soon and this was what she came up with ( Please note: you can modify this if you will be speaking about your grandson)

 

It feels like only yesterday, you came into our lives and my whole world centered around you.

 

Growing up, I dreamed of having two precious daughters. A little less than a year after I had gotten married to your late grandpa, we had our first child and I remember telling my husband when your mom was three years old that we better go for the second.

 

We thought that was going to happen soon like the first. But year after year, we kept trying and doing all we could to make our dreams come true.

 

When I was forty, I stopped pursuing that goal. I remember thinking out loud that your mom might bless me with a cute little girl on that wintry night and put a warm smile on my face.

 

I longed to support your mom to take good care of you because I wanted nothing but the very best for you and her.

But God had another plan for her. Through it all, we were hopeful that she would regain her joy and purpose for living and she did far more than we could ever imagine.

 

Growing, you were so active that you sometimes sapped my energy.

I still remember how you made me run like a 100-meter Olympic sprinter that I almost collapsed on the small field at our backyard.

 

In spite of that, I longed to be near you because you were so adorable and fun to be around. Suddenly, you bloomed like a springtime flower and I could only imagine where life would take you.

 

You made us proud every step of the way. On my 70th birthday party, your mom was worried after the guests were all gone. She was worried about the person you will marry and whether that man will love you just as we do.

 

I remember telling you that you were someone I could count on. It’s amazing how that special man over there walked into your life and made us all so proud. You told me over and over even you were a child that you were not going to marry for the sake of being married. But your heart will sing when you find Mr. Right.

 

Today, I look into the beautiful light in your eyes and it seems as if your heart is singing a beautiful love melody that tugs at the heart. You’ve been the sunshine of our lives and we wish you well as you start life with Dan.

 

Always know that we will love you and be constantly praying for your everlasting happiness because you deserve all the blessings love gives.

 

Dan, thanks for bringing out the best in our daughter and for making her see life from a very enlightening perspective.

Today, I have the honor to give you the best gift of our lives and we trust that you will put her first in everything we do. Remember, you belong to each other so love her and treat her like a princess and you will be one of the truly happy men who ever lived.

 

On your big day, her mom and I wish you nothing but true love and happiness. God bless you both abundantly and always know that we will be there for you both.

 

Do you really have what it takes to write something short and sweet like that?

It’s not as hard as you think. By the way, l am going to walk you through everything you need to know about writing an amazing grandmom of the bride or groom speech for your granddaughter or grandson.

 

Take Note Of This Else You Will Fail

But, first, let’s look at one thing that cripples most wedding speakers from pulling off something memorable.

 

If you do a fair amount of public speaking, you will realize that anytime you have to stand before a group of people, you will get nervous.

It gets very scary if you don’t do that quite often. You see, as you get all set to deliver your remarks at your granddaughter’s or grandson’s wedding, you will hear little voices in your head which will simply tell you that you don’t have what it takes to do so well.

 

Maybe you didn’t succeed when you spoke in public sometime in the past, and that voice will kind of resurrect feelings of fear.

 

But listen. You don’t have to dwell on that. You should instead believe you can by focusing on the task ahead of you and you will shine like the stars.

 

How To Get The Job Done With Ease

That said; let’s see how you can get the right words and ideas to help you write your speech.

 

First, put yourself in the mood for the expressions of your thoughts.

How?

By visiting video sharing sites like youtube.com and the like.

 

Then, insert your keywords like the grandma of the bride….grandma of the groom's speech and watch a few of such clips.

The purpose of doing this is to get inspired. So, go grab your note pad and pen and click on this sample video and jot down ideas and tips you think you can include in your own speech.

 


Have You Also Considered This Stress-Relieving Tool?

Another great tool that most speakers under-utilize is speech samples. Well written ones are proven to write your thoughts out like a pro!

To illustrate, I am going to break down the speech grandma Tina gave so you get a fair idea of how best to do the same.

First, let’s re-visit here introduction.

Here you go:

It feels like only yesterday, you came into our lives, and my whole world centered on you.

 

Any comment? While that is a remarkable introduction, there are certainly critical elements of a good intro missing.

She should have

  • Greeted the audience
  • mentioned her name and her relationship with the bride.
  • Thanked the audience for coming

 

This is a short example:

Hello, good evening and welcome everyone!

For those of you who don’t know me, my name is Tina, and I am…………grand mom.

I would like to say how happy and grateful we are to have you come and celebrate with this couple….

 

Afterward, her sentiments can follow: It feels like only yesterday…

 

This Makes All The Difference

Ok…let’s look at another component of her speech: the body

 

These are excerpts:

Growing, you were so active that you sometimes sapped my energy...

I still remember how you made me run like a 100-meter Olympic sprinter that I almost collapsed on…

 

In spite of that, I longed to be near you because you were so adorable and fun to be around…You made us proud every step of the way. On my 70th birthday party, your mom was worried after the guests were all gone.

I remember telling you that you were someone…

 

Do you have any idea what goes into the body? Well, before you even start to write, you should have a writing goal in mind.

Simply ask yourself if you want to do a funny, dramatic, poetic, song-like, sentimental, or even a storytelling speech?

 

What I have seen from helping wedding speakers with their speeches is that most moms prefer a blend of funny and sentimental.

So, if that’s what you want, then you have to

  • Write down funny memories or anecdotes about your granddaughter or grandson you feel you can include in your message

 

If you want to execute something classic using the storytelling approach, then you should provide answers to questions like

  • How did you feel when your grandchild was born?
  • What was or were your dreams for her?
  • How was she like when she was growing up? Put this part into her childhood, teenage and adulthood

 

If his or her parents are speaking on the wedding date, you can collaborate with them to ensure that you don’t repeat similar stories or ideas. All in all, it’s best to stick with events that involved only you and her or something you saw from afar!

 

As part of the body, you should say something about the groom or bride.

 

Wedding by grandmother to granddaughter or grandson

For example, you can talk about why you love him and why you think he or she will be a great husband or wife...

 

See how this writer did that.

It’s amazing how that special man over...Today, I look into the beautiful light in your eyes and it seems like…

You’ve been the sunshine of our lives…Always know that we will love you and be constantly praying for your everlasting happiness because you deserve all the blessings love gives.

 

Dan…Today, I have the honor to give you the best gift of our lives and we trust that you will put her first in everything we do…God bless you both

 

If you’re the sole speaker of the night, then you can welcome him or her into your family.

If you’re not, you still can do that by telling him or her why you’re so happy to join theirs.

Here's an example:  I am so excited that you’re now part of our family and we look forward to spending quality time with yours.

Enough said about that

 

Here Are Some Proven Secrets To Ending On A High Note!

 

Let’s now look at how to end on a very memorable note.

 

Here’s how our writer closed her speech:

On your big day, her mom and I wish you nothing but true love and happiness. God bless you both abundantly and always know that we will be there for you both.

 

Here are my take-home ideas:  There are several ways to leaving favorable impressions on the wedding guests before you go back to your seat and I am happy to share a few with you.

  1. You can just give your well-wishes as we saw in the example
  2. You can end with any of these love quotes

 

Love quote 1: ''Where there is love there is life.'' – Mahatma Gandhi

Love quote 2: ''You know you’re in love when you can’t fall asleep because reality is finally better than your dreams.'' – Dr. Seuss

Love quote 3: ''A successful marriage requires falling in love many times, always with the same person.'' – Mignon McLaughlin

 

  1. You can quote poetry about love….Let me use this verse by ……….to illustrate with Emily Dickinson’s ‘’It’s all I have to bring today’’

It’s all I have to bring today—
This, and my heart beside—
This, and my heart, and all the fields—
And all the meadows wide—
Be sure you count—should I forget
Someone the sum could tell—
This, and my heart, and all the Bees
Which is the Clover dwell?

 Watch me closely as I write based on the theme of that poem….not going to use the whole thing but I am only going to use the word: ‘’heart’

 See what I composed below

Though winter and summers of your life will come and go, always be sure that you hold each other’s heart and you will be stronger together no matter what happens...

Can you do the same? You can...don't doubt yourself!
