Mom of the groom rehearsal dinner speech tips and ideas

Don’t worry…Just follow this easy-to-follow example and you will only be a step away from saying something funny and heartfelt about your precious son.

 

Amanda had three wonderful boys and her dream as they grew older was to see them get married to wonderful ladies.

 

She, however, wasn’t around to see her first and second sons get married because she was involved in a fatal accident and that kept her in the hospital bed for many years.

 

When his last son decided to take his fiancée to the altar, she was back on her feet and her son asked her to give a speech at the rehearsal dinner.

She had never given a speech her whole life and this kept her up at night.

 

A few days before the event, she hastily put something together and this is what she said that night:

Good evening and welcome everyone. I am Linda, Aaron’s mother.

Aaron has always held a special place in my heart.

It seems like only yesterday, he came into my life and made me feel like the luckiest mom ever.

From that moment on, my hope and prayer were to love and raise him to be a wonderful man someday.

 

M6 (1)

 

Growing up, you were very active and fun to be with and that hasn’t changed over the years.

Whether Aaron was acting up and making faces, telling jokes, pranking someone, or drawing funny pictures, the little boy really lit my heart with joy.

 

I remember he was so easy-going that my girlfriends and younger children loved to always hang with him.

Even before those kids were able to talk or get out and move on their own much, he would take care of them and make sure they were happy and not be crying in their pumpkin seats.

 

Sometimes, he would take them for rides. Aaron loved to work with his hands and it was a great joy to see him try new things. His love for cars formed when he reached his teens.

 

 

The years have come and gone pretty fast and he’s grown into a very respectful, thoughtful, compassionate, responsible, selfless, charming, witty, and sensitive young man.

 

Aaron, we are so proud of the wonderful man you’ve become and how far life has brought you.

 

I thank God for giving you to me and for giving me the opportunity to love unconditionally.


You came into my life and saved me in so many ways.


You are also wonderful in every way and I love that you truly show me every day how much you love and need me.

Your selfless nature, and unconditionally love for people is so admirable and I know for sure that will take you far in life.

 

 

Even though my love for you runs so deep, I am so excited that Cmantha now has your heart and can’t wait to see what great things you will accomplish with Cmantha, for your own children.

 

Ladies and gentlemen, Aaron and Cmantha have been friends for a very long time. They met way back in high school.

I first met her when she came over to swim at our house. The more I got to know her, the more I realized she was a very good person for my son.

 

As time went on, I watched how she treated Aaron with love and brought out the best in him and I secretly hoped that someday they will tie the knot.

 

Today, my dream has come true and I am ecstatic that it's all finally official and Cmantha’s now my daughter. 

 

 

Cmantha, you have no idea how much you mean to us. Words can’t just describe the love we have for you.

 

As a family, we’ve been through ups and downs. But, through it all, you stood by us and showered us with endless love. It feels so good to know that you’ve married Kyle.

 

Not only are you so beautiful, but you’re so strong, intelligent, respectful, compassionate, patient, empathetic, self- confident and you love children.

 

I am confident that you will be a good wife and mom! We love you and on behalf of my family, I would like to welcome you and your family into ours with open arms.

 

Aaron and Cmantha, for years, you both have cherished each other with every passing moment. You truly complement each other.

 

As you begin your lives together, I pray you stay blessed and I wish you nothing but happy moments and endless love. God bless you both

Wouldn’t it great if you write something close to that or even better when your son calls you out of the blue and asks you to say something short and sweet?

 

 

Would you pass that up or make him proud? I know you’re wondering how you’re going to do that since you are someone who hates speaking in front of a small audience.

Wipe Your Tears Because...

 

Whatever your case is, don’t worry because I am going to show you how you can use the example above to write a beautiful mom of the groom's speech that captures the sentiments of your heart.

 

Before we do, please take note of this. Before you even write your mother of the groom rehearsal dinner speech, you have to work on healing yourself from the inside out.

 

You see, the vast majority of mothers get mentally disadvantaged due to past speaking failures and they often get stuck in the writing process.

 

What that means is that you need to work on yourself if you are not a confident speaker or are scared that your presentation is going to be a déjà vu of past failures.

 

Believe it or not, if you have been through the tortuous agony of addressing a few people, you are definitely going to hear a lot of tormenting voices in your head as soon as you make up your mind to say something about your son and daughter-in-law.

 

Among many things, this domineering voice will remind you of your insecurities like you are not good with words or don’t have the guts to speak in public. What you do with the voice you hear will reinforce your anxieties and insecurities.  

 

If you want to excel, you have to dwell on the positive side of things by first considering that you have another chance to make up for your losses. Your son, your family, as well as the wedding guests, are not expecting a perfect speech from your lips.

 

All that they want to hear from you is memorable stories about your son’s life presented in a very loving way. I know you have lots of fond memories to share with everyone. So, put behind you whatever experiences or you have been through and envision how well this is going to be.

 

As you keep at it,  you will be empowered from within even if you are as shy as a deer in the headlights and you will be able to practice speaking with confidence and make sure you sound confident when you talk.

 

As a wedding speechwriter, I am often asked by most moms how to get the best ideas on how to write a great mother of the groom rehearsal dinner speech.

It’s actually simple than most mothers think. One fine place of getting rich ideas most mothers overlook is on youtube.com et al.

 

If you have not watched at least two videos on the subject, then you shouldn’t bother to draft your speech because water can’t flow from an empty reservoir. What that means is that you need to see videos to get a good grasp of how to make your thoughts flow smoothly.

 

I scoured the internet and found these pieces. They are to give you an idea of what the narration sounds like.

My suggestion is to watch both clips like two or three times and put down notes and ideas you want to incorporate into your final delivery.

Which one did you enjoy listening to the most? I love both videos but the second story was my favorite.

That said,  I promise to review Linda’s sample speech so we can figure out how she wrote it.

 

So, let’s take the most important elements of the speech one step at a time.

 

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

Aaron has always held a special place in my heart.

It seems like only yesterday, he came into my life and made me feel like the luckiest mom ever.

From that moment on, my hope and prayer was to love and raise him to be a wonderful man someday.

 

My comments/your take-home writing ideas: Do you think that was a great intro? I think so but there are some vital elements missing here.

Liza should have added these to her introductory remarks:

  • She could have mentioned the father of the groom if he’s not deceased
  • Her name and who she’s to Aaron
  • Greet the audience and thank everyone for coming
  • She could have mentioned certain people and thank them for contributing to his son’s upbringing other the years….People like Aaron’s grandparents, her husband, and other members of the family.

 

Cmantha’s parents deserve some recognition in that part of her speech.

 

Putting all of that together would have turned out something like this:

Good evening and welcome everyone!

I’m Linda, proud mom of the groom.

It gives me great joy and honor to see the smiling faces of so many people who love and cherish this wonderful couple.

I would like to thank everyone who has come from near and far to share in our joy and happiness.

I would like to take this moment to thank Nani for her…

 

Now, let’s get back to see other sections of Liza’s speech. Please study it carefully.

 

Growing up, you were very active and fun to be with and that hasn’t changed over the years.

Whether Aaron was acting up and making faces, telling jokes, pranking someone, or drawing funny pictures, the little boy could really lit your heart with joy.

I remember he was so easy-going that my girlfriends and younger children loved to always hang with him.

 

Even before those kids were able to talk or get out and move on their own much, he would take care of them and make sure they were happy and not be crying in their pumpkin seats. Sometimes, he would take them for rides.

 

My comments/your take-home writing ideas:

Right after the introduction of the speech, we segue into Aaron's formative years.

Here’s what I want you to do right now.

Go grab your paper and pen and provide answers to the following questions:

  • How was your son like when he was a little kid?
  • What did he like doing most?
  • Do you remember any funny thing he liked doing?
  • What was his favorite past time or his hobbies?
  • How did you feel when he was growing up?

 

Dear Mom,

Don’t put down anything negative as you write down memories.

Having scribbled down something brief, go back to the template I gave you at the onset of this piece and examine how the ideas follow one another and do likewise.

 

Okay, let’s go on.

The years have come and gone pretty fast and he’s grown into a very respectful, thoughtful, compassionate, responsible, selfless, charming, witty, and sensitive young man.

Kyle, we are so proud of the wonderful man you’ve become and how far life has brought you. I thank God for giving you to me and for giving me the opportunity to love unconditionally.

You came into my life and saved me in so many ways. You are also wonderful in every way and I love that you truly show me every day how much you love and need me.

Your selfless nature, and unconditionally love for people is so admirable and I know for sure that will take you far in life.

 

My comments/your take-home writing ideas: Please, I want you to scroll up and read that brief extract once more. What can you say about that?

 

Did you notice how Linda the writer incorporated the following ideas into that part of her short mom of the groom rehearsal dinner speech?

 

  • How proud she is of her son

 

  • How her son’s character has evolved over the years

 

  • How she sings her sons' praises

 

You can model your speech after that and spice it up with….

 

  • His achievements over the years if you don't want to sound like you're bragging
  • How he helped make a difference in your life and the whole family

 

Not too long ago, I wrote a speech for a very loving woman from Canada and she told me that her son values ''family over everything'' and she wanted to share that with the wedding guests.

 

After thinking hard about that, I ended up by saying:

 

Mr. F.O. E is very sensitive. For those of you know wondering what F.E.O means…it stands for ''family over everything.'' Mr. F.O.E makes every one of the family feel loved and special whenever we meet….

 

I hope by now you get a sense of where this is going... We still have a few miles to cover, so let’s go on:

 

Ladies and gentlemen, Aaron and Cmantha have been friends for a very long time. They met way back in high school.

I first met her when she came over to swim at our house. The more I got to know her, the more I realized she was a very good person for my son.

 

As time went on, I watched how she treated Aaron with love and brought out the best in him and I secretly hoped that someday they will tie the knot.

 

Today, my dream has come true and I am just completely ecstatic that it's all finally official and Cmantha’s now my daughter.  Cmantha, you have no idea how much you mean to us. Words can’t just describe the love we have for you.

 

As a family, we’ve been through ups and downs. But, through it all, you stood by us and showered us with endless love.

It feels so good to know that you’ve married Kyle. Not only are you so beautiful, but you’re so strong, intelligent, respectful, compassionate, patient, empathetic, self- confident and you love children.

 

I am confident that you will be a good wife and mom! We love you and on behalf of my family, I would like to welcome you and your family into ours with open arms.

My comments/your take-home writing ideas:

 

After you have said something about your son, you then briefly tell how the couple met if you know about that story. 

Just put down answers to questions like the following so you can say something about your daughter-in-law.

  • How did you feel when you met your future daughter in law?
  • What were your impressions of her as the days went by?
  • What memories do you have of her…it could be a road trip, vacation tip, family get together your entire family embarked on and how she was very helpful

 

That reminds me of a speech I once wrote. The mom of the groom loved the bride very much that she wanted to insert into her speech how her precious daughter-in-law stood by the entire family throughout the years and including that moved me to tears because she was a very supportive lady.

 

You may walk down memory lane and inject into the presentation the difference the bride has had on your life.

 

Here are Linda's concluding remarks:

 

Aaron and Cmantha, for years, you both have cherished each other with every passing moment.

 

You truly complement each other. As you begin your lives together, I pray you stay blessed and I wish you nothing but happy moments and endless love. God bless you both

 

My comments/your take-home writing ideas :

What you say before you take your seat will linger on the minds of the couple and the wedding guests, so you should put in a great deal of thought into what you say or write about your son or daughter-in-law.

 

 

It’s very common for most mothers to...

  • Dispense advice on marriage like this one

 

Aaron and Cmantha, as you begin this endless journey, always bear in mind that together you are a unique team and you can make your dreams come true as long as you have the same mind, heart, and spirit.

 

You may use any of the following quotes to spice up your speech based on your experience of being married.

 

  • A successful marriage requires falling in love many times, always with the same person.” – Mignon McLaughlin

 

  • “A great marriage is not when the ‘perfect couple’ comes together. It is when an imperfect couple learns to enjoy their differences.” – Dave Meurer

 

 

  • “Never marry the one you can live with, marry the one you cannot live without.” – Unknown

 

  • “A good marriage is one which allows for change and growth in the individuals and in the way they express their love.” – Pearl S. Buck

 

  • “Marriage is not about age; it’s about finding the right person.” – Sophia Bush

 

  • Say what your best wishes are for the marriage

 

  • "Best wishes to you both as you start your life together."

 

  • "Lots of love and happiness to you both on this exciting and joyful day for our family."

 

  • "Lots of love to you both.  May you have a marriage full of love and happiness!"

 

  •   You can end with a poem about love or marriage or even a wise quote.

 

  • If you are a Christian, you can get some good bible verses to write faith-based advice for the couple. Here are a couple of scriptures you can use.

 

“Delight yourself in the Lord, and He will give you the desires of your heart.” Psalm 37:4

 

“He who finds a wife finds a good thing and obtains favor from the Lord.” Proverbs 18:22

 

Again, if two lie together, they keep warm, but how can one keep warm alone? And though a man might prevail against one who is alone, two will withstand him-a a threefold cord is not quickly broken.” Ecclesiastes 4:9-12

 

An excellent wife who can find? She is far more precious than jewels. The heart of her husband trusts in her, and he will have no lack of gain. She does him good, and not harm, all the days of her life.” Proverbs 31:10-12
