Mother Of The Groom Speech Rehearsal Dinner Speech

Worried About Your Mom Of The Groom Rehearsal Dinner Speech?

You Don't Have To...Just Follow These Simple Tips, Ideas And Examples, And You'll Be A Step Away From Giving A Unique, Sweet And Memorable Mom Of The Groom Speech!

Once a frustrated mom whose only son was getting married wrote to me that she wanted to give a very beautiful mom of the groom's speech, yet she couldn't figure out how to get the good words.

 

I remember that I had many moms to attend to but something whispered into my ear and said: '' Dan, don't worry this is on short notice...Please help her!''

 

Obviously she was a writer and I asked her to take care of it since I was completely overwhelmed with work.

It turned out that she had no clue about writing a beautiful mom of the groom's speech. So, I had no choice but to help her come with a heartfelt message and I was overjoyed when she came back to tell me her speech was the best of the night.

My work with that mom reminds of Sharon’s Jaynes quote: ''Successful Mothers are not the ones that have never struggled, they are the ones that never give up, despite the struggles.''

 

I am sure you’re one of the most successful moms alive considering the fact that your loving sacrifices and tireless dedication have brought your son thus far.

 

Well, you shouldn’t leave your speech or even wing it because your mom of the groom rehearsal dinner speech should tell your family, friends, and the wedding guests how much you love him and how much your precious son means to you.

 

But as you may know, stringing your thoughts and emotions together, to form a very meaningful speech is not so easy for most moms.

I have writing speeches this for a while and I know how it feels when you really want to find the rights words and ideas for your speech.

 

In this post, I will show how to effortlessly get the right ideas and put those thoughts together to form a very effective speech.

 

Does This Keep You Up At Night?

But first, let’s look at the crucial factor that prevents most moms from achieving real success.

 

Even though I have been writing speeches for some time, there’s this little voice inside my head that keeps telling me that: ‘’Dan, you can’t do it'', whenever I have to jot down something and that sometimes make me feel a little nervous.

 

You will also experience too but that shouldn’t get the better of you.

 

Perhaps you flunked English and you’re thinking you are not cut out for this. Perhaps you goofed big time when you gave a speech on another occasion or you were visibly shivering when you gave a speech at one of your son’s wedding…

 

Please, get this right. The fact that you failed to impress your audience at some point in the past doesn’t mean you’re going to fail this time too.

No, you won’t. This is another chance to shine like a star and you can do that by believing you can; in spite of what that little voice in your head keeps telling you.

To keep your emotions in check,  you have to constantly hold a positive mental image of yourself speaking confidently and you will be empowered from within.

 

Now, let’s see how to get good words.

 

First,

Put Yourself In The Mood For The Clever Expression Of Your Ideas

How can you do that?

  • Here’s what I recommend you do. Go to video sharing sites like youtube.com etc. and insert in the search box: mom of the groom speeches or mom rehearsal dinner speech.

Go grab your notepad and pen and press the play button. Watch as many of them and jot down ideas, words, and phrases you feel you can use for your delivery.

By the way, the beautiful video below is a great example that inspires creative thinking. 

This Is By Far The Best Resource...Have You Ever Considered It?

Another great resource most moms don’t make the most of is, mom of the groom rehearsal dinner speech samples. We analyzed how one of those pieces was written and you can check it out here.

 

Oh my gosh, I almost forgot to tell you the benefits of those examples. Not too late to spill the beans right?

 

Speech samples contain several ideas and phrases and words you can model your own content after. But make sure you don’t copy what you find verbatim else your speech will lack the uniqueness it really deserves.

 

If you take a critical look at this example and other well-written ones, you will realize that the subject matter is built on these fundamental pillars:

  • Introduction
  • Body
  • Conclusion

 

Okay, let’s see how you can develop ideas for each pillar.

Let’s use the ‘’pillar of introduction’’ to start with.   Ever heard that there’s no second chance to make a first impression? The same thing goes for the opening lines of your speech.

 

There are several ways to grab or capture the attention of the audience from the get-go and I  will share a few with you.

 

Before, I do, you should know that greeting the audience, followed by a short self-presentation and expression of gratitude forms a part of your mother of the groom rehearsal dinner speech.

 

Now, let's see how to start on a bang.

  • You can tie your introduction to a memorable day in your son’s life. How? For example, if you got married on that same day, you can chip that in or if his birthday falls on his big day.

 

  • You may begin with a story. Stories about the day he was born and how you felt on that day. No need to include that if the day wasn’t what you were expecting. Dwell on the positive experiences when delivering your lines.

 

  • You may begin with a quote and I like using quotes a lot to enrich my thoughts.

I promised to give you a few examples, so here are some quotes.

 

Quote# 1: In the end, it's not the years in your life that count. It's the life in your years.”
– Abraham Lincoln

Quote# 2: Being deeply loved by someone gives you strength while loving someone deeply gives you courage.”
– Lao Tzu

Quote# 3: “There is always some madness in love. But there is also always some reason in madness.”
– Friedrich Nietzsche

Quote# 4: “The greatest happiness of life is the conviction that we are loved; loved for ourselves, or rather, loved in spite of ourselves.”
– Victor Hugo

Quote#5: Love is a friendship set to music.”
– Joseph Campbell

 

Now, I want to make things much easier for you, so I’d like to use this quote to come up with something short and sweet:

Quote# 4: “The greatest happiness of life is the conviction that we are loved; loved for ourselves, or rather, loved in spite of ourselves.”
– Victor Hugo

 

If I were to use that quote to address the wedding attendees, then it would be:

On a joyous moment like this, you can’t help but agree with writer Victor Hugo that the greatest happiness of life is the conviction that we are loved; loved for ourselves, or rather, loved in spite of ourselves….

Did you notice how I did that? You can too by imitating how I created those lines out of Victor Hugo’s quotation.

 

This Is What The Wedding Guests Are Expecting...

 

Next, you have to get your ideas together for the main part of the speech or the body.

You can decide to write something brief or even follow what most moms prefer: letting their thoughts flow from childhood through adulthood or even concentrate on what makes your son unique.

 

Whatever your speaking goals are, you should put down your ideas using other resources like wisecracks, jokes, poetry, and even songs.

If you want your message to flow in chronological order, then you can first talk about how you felt when your son was born.

 

What the grooms mother should say at rehearsal dinner

 

Do you remember all that happened on that special day? If so, put down those memories.

Besides, you can write down how you felt when he was born. You can also add how his arrival deepened your love bonds.

 

Here’s a very short example based on those pointers.

For me, it’s a blessing to see both children build their lives with their loved ones.

Well, after Margaret was born, my heart’s desire was to have a son and God blessed me with Dan.

It was a dream come true and I remember on that beautiful day, I felt so loved my whole life…

 

The next thing you should give thought to is your son’s childhood.

 

You can use adjectives like happy, active, kind, loving….etc. to describe his formative years.

 

Believe it or not, there’s nothing wrong with using those adjectives but your words can be made more memorable if you use similes and metaphors instead of adjectives.

 

Ok, let me illustrate. Which of these two do you think will make the wedding guests super-excited?

  1. Growing up, Alex was very active
  2. As a little boy, Alex was like a shooting star.

 

Which of these descriptions do you think will blow the guests away?

From the contented look in your eyes, I know you’ve chosen the (b) and that’s a great choice.

You see, anytime you use similes and metaphors, you’re kind of painting a colorful, mental picture in your listener's mind, so use them sparingly if you really want to decorate your message.

 

Here are a few good ones you can use:

  1. Instead of active, you can say: ''He was a bundle of energy'' or ''He was like a shark''

 

  1. Instead of daring, you can say: ''He had the heart of a lion cub''

 

  1. Instead of happy or infectious personality, you can say:'' He was like the first spring rain''

 

  1. Instead of saying he was precocious, you can say: '' His memory was like a magnet''

 

  1. Instead of saying he was fun to be around, you can say: '' He was so sweet like a rose''

Please feel free to use any of those descriptions to help you put down your thoughts and emotions into a very short and sweet mom of the groom's dinner speech

 

What Should I Include Here?

 

The body is basically your story line. So, please choose which anecdotes you want to share. Those stories should have a positive tone, they should be engaging and should be ideas your son and family members can definitely relate to.

 

Just as you have to kick start your speech with a bang, you also have to end memorably.

 

The toast, well-wishes, and advice form this part of your message and you should put in much effort here.

 

I really don’t you to spend so much on it….So, I am happy to share with you how you can come up with something ingenious.

 

  1. Can you sing or even play any musical instrument? If you do, then you sing your closing remarks to the beat of a well-known love song.

 

  1. Marriage poetry or love quotes can also help you write something that tugs at heartstrings.

 

Here are some poignant quotes you can use:

 

Love quote#1: ''A good marriage would be between a blind wife and a deaf husband'' -Michel de Montaigne

Love quote#2: ''A successful marriage requires falling in love many times, always with the same person ''-Mignon McLaughlin


Love quote#3: ''The couples that are meant to be are the ones that go through everything that is meant to tear them apart and come out even stronger.''–

Love quote#4: ''True love is growing as a couple, learning about each other, and never giving up on each other.'' -

Love quote#5: ''You are the answer to every prayer I’ve offered. You are a song, a dream, a whisper, and I don’t know how I could have lived without you for as long as I have.'' - Nicholas Sparks

Can you use any of that to advise the couple? Of course, you can….wondering how to do just that?

 

Okay, let me compose something thoughtful with Love quote#4: True love is growing as a couple, learning about each other, and never giving up on each other.

Alex and Amanda, I know you’re looking forward to building your lives together but love’s long, undulating road...
