Father Of The Groom Speech or Toast: A Simple and Easy-To-Follow Guide To Delivering The Best Speech For Your Son and Daughter-in- Law Even If Your Writing Sucks Or You Hate Being In The Public Eye

 

Have you ever listened to a really enjoyable father of the groom’s speech and wished you could do the same when your son is getting married to the love of his life someday? 

 

Father of the groom wedding speech

 

You seem to be nodding in agreement and that’s a clear indication that you are bent on giving the best speech ever for your son and daughter-in-law at the wedding.

 

 

Well, D-day is here at last. But let me ask you this: do you really have what it takes to write a memorable speech that will make you loved admired and respected by your son, in-law, family, and friends?

 

 

Please don’t worry if you don't or you even failed to live up to expectation when you were asked to say a few words at your child’s wedding sometime back and you’re probably wondering if you stand a realistic chance of success this time around.

 

Well, you are not alone, my friend. Many fathers have let their children down countless times as they were not sure what to say or even know how to say it so eloquently.

Maybe you are thinking that you need to have good writing or speaking skills to give a great speech and I must say that popular thinking is so wrong.

 

Even though both skills are priceless assets when it comes to saying something heartfelt about your son and daughter-in-law, they are by no means all the skillset you need to put your scattered thoughts and ideas together.

 

If you don’t want to embarrass yourself, please stick with me because I am going to share with you all the tips, advice, hints, ideas, guidelines, and examples I resort to when fathers from all over the world ask me for help with this.

Trust me, I am not going to hold anything back as my goal is to help you put together something beautiful even if you hate being in the public eye or your writing sucks.

So, please bear with me a little longer and you will be so glad you did!

 

Before we do so, there are a couple of things I want to bring to your attention so you don’t shoot yourself in the foot.

 

You Should Avoid This If You Really Want To Do Well At Your Son’s Wedding

 

While some fathers think they can wing it, others see no need to prepare their speeches ahead of time. And guess what several others do?

 

They simply copy and paste ideas and examples from the internet and make some edits to them before using them.  There’s nothing wrong with toeing this line. But I have found out that it doesn’t in any way help make any speech unique, although speech samples can be very useful if you seem to be running short on time.

 

Well, if you have a few days to your son’s wedding and need some quick ideas, you can modify them to suit your situation better and I have outlined how to use the father of the groom's speeches the right way in this article.

 

That being said, let’s look at this:

 

What Should The Father Of The Groom Say About His Son And Daughter-in-Law?

 

That’s a great question to ask because saying what’s on your heart I think is the most dignified role of being a father of the groom and you should put in the energy and effort required to make your speech heartfelt.

 

You really wanna know what the secrets are? Ok…I have a simple question for you: What, in your opinion, helped Christopher Columbus and his compatriots discover new territories around the world?

 

If you mentioned tools and heavenly bodies like stars, compasses, cross-staffs, and chip logs, then you are a great history student and  I offer my warmest congratulations!

 

You see, those early explorers didn’t venture out without first learning about the nature of the journey ahead they were embarking.  No wonder, they were so successful in their pursuits.

 

So, it is with writing a sweet father of the groom toast. The biggest mistake I see most fathers make is to write the content of their speeches without first finding out what’s actually involved in scripting a very good piece.

 

Just as the early explorers saw a need to consult their maps before venturing out, you too need to gather ideas before you even decide to put something down on paper.

 

Wondering how to come up with these ideas? It’s easier than you think.

Most people don’t know this, but videos about father of the groom speeches are a rich source of practical ideas that can inspire you to start and end your message on a bright note.

 

To make your ideas come to life, you should watch a good example and I would recommend seeing this video clip, even though they are several good ones on the internet.

 

 

This is what I have for you. Please watch it carefully and then, we will see what we can make out of it. As you watch it, please jot down ideas, words, and phrases you think you can incorporate into your own personal style.

 

If that clip is not enough, you can still look for more examples on the net.  

Video examples are not the only goldmine of information for the tongue-tied father.

A well-written father of the groom speech example is an invaluable writing tool that can also help you decide on a format for your speech.

At this point, I would like us to study an example in detail, and then we will examine how we can use it to write a speech that will make everyone so proud of you.

I can’t wait to see friends and family complimenting you on great work done!

Can we please read it now? Kindly bring a pen and notepad to take notes.

 

What should the father of the groom say at son's wedding

 

Let’s now take a look: 

A Short Father Of The Groom Speech

Hello, good evening and welcome everyone!

For those of you who don’t know me, my name is Jon Stewart and I am Mike’s proud dad and Tracie’s father-in-law.

It’s a blessing to see friends and family who have traveled from coast to coast; On behalf of my family, I’d like to say how grateful we are to have you come from all over to be with us tonight. Thank you so much for coming.

 

Growing up, Mike was easy to care for, a joy to be around and he loved dogs. Once, we drove down to the beach with my dog Tan.

 

After playing with Tan at the beach, we rented a wooden canoe and I insisted Tan join us. Mike asked if she had been in a canoe before and I sidestepped the question by replying, ''She’s a Labrador Retriever, of course, she’s fine in a canoe.''

 

We hadn’t gotten too far from the shore when Tan jumped out of the canoe to swim after some pelicans that were swimming on the water. Tan pursued the birds for quite some time.

 

Worried that Tan might be swept away by the tide, he looked at me and said, '' Dad, if I don’t swim to rescue her, we would lose her. So he put on his life jacket and chased after the dog.''

 

As we tried to help Tan to get back on the boat and head home, our canoe flipped over and we ended up in the bottom of the water.  It took the intervention of some lifeguards to get us back to the shore.

 

The years have gone by so fast and it’s a distinct privilege to see you grow up into an absolutely wonderful man that we see before us today.

Mike’s a very kind and loving person and he always goes out of his way to help me, his mom, and siblings as much as he can.

His rich kindness has made our lives better and I am very confident that he will extend that same love and respect to Tracie and the kids.

 

Over the last few years of getting to know Tracie and I can tell you that she’s a beautiful person from the inside out.

Tracie is a loving, caring, and driven person and a good cook too.  What more could we ask for? Let me use this opportunity to welcome her into the Stewart family with open arms even though we’ve considered her part of our family for all these years.

 

Mike and Tracie, what a wonderful day for our family; and especially you two. I'm so happy to share in your celebration and I really want to thank you for letting us share in your celebrations.

 

Congratulations and we look forward to watching you both build your lives together in love and harmony. So always love each other no matter the difficulties that may arise.

 

You surely will have moments of struggles. But if you always put each other first, you will make it through life and deeply appreciate all the beautiful gifts that will come your way.

 

As you build your lives together, it’s my hope and prayer that today will be the beginning of a long, happy life together.  God bless you.

Did you find that interesting? And which ideas did you find most compelling? And can you write something close to it, if not better?

No answer forthcoming? You don’t have to doubt yourself or your ability. You sure can.

That example is to give you a fair idea, so don’t copy it verbatim.

 

Now, I am going to walk you through…..

How You Can Write The Best Ever Father Speech…without breaking a sweat….

Are you ready to ''rumble?''

Ok… please don’t forget to get your pen or notepad or anything for scribbling notes. As you are pretty much aware, every writing piece has three key parts: an introduction, a body, and a conclusion.

 

So, first, let’s look at the introduction. See recap below

Short father of the groom speech ideas

 

 

 

As you did see from that extract, the introductory remarks comprise the following

  • He starts by greeting the audience and that’s one of the things you should do as that forms part of the wedding speech etiquette
  • Next is the name of the speaker (that’s you)and your relationship with the bride and groom.
  • That is followed by saying thank you to deserving persons who have contributed to making your son who is over the years.

 

You should mention their names and categorically state why they are so deserving of thanks.

 

Such individuals include:

  • His mom or your wife
  • His uncles and aunts
  • His grandparents on both sides of the family
  • His siblings, friends, and neighbors….
  • The list goes on, and on, and on.

 

This is an example of that:

Let me take a moment to thank some people who have been a blessing in Mike’s life:

First, let me say a big thank you to Bill and Ruth – Mikes’ grandparents who taught him how to be a  real man.

 

They took him hunting when he was a little and taught him to read while I was on deployment at Vietnam and his mom was bedridden for close to 6 years.

 

Bill and Ruth, we are deeply indebted to them for everything they have done for their grandson. Can you please give them a hand clap? They truly deserve it.

 

Sorry…I almost forgot about making this suggestion. If you are doing a parents of the groom or a joint speech, you can congratulate each other and that will be so awesome.

 

 

In the eyes of the guests, you both will be seen as a lovely couple who always stand by each other’s side.  Most couples don’t do this. But if you give it a try, your delivery will become so unique.

 

The whole point here is to make sure you walk down memory lane and write down the names of personalities who have blessed your son’s life because 

''Feeling gratitude and not expressing it is like wrapping a present and not giving it. ''---William Arthur Ward

 

How To Write The Body Of Your Speech

 

Now, let's examine... Ok, before we start, let's look at what you need to know before you put your storyline together. 

The questions or guidelines below can serve as useful pointers for coming up with the content of your speech: so please provide answers to the following questions. 

  • Are you looking forward to delivering a humorous father of the groom speech? For example, if you really want to make a funny speech, then you have to come up with hilarious anecdotes that will support the overall theme. 

Did you notice how Mike related the story of what happened at the beach? That's how to go about things

 

  • If you don't want something funny, then you should decide if you want to go for a sentimental, storytelling, poetic, or combination of two or more styles?

 

  • What's the theme of your speech? Once I worked with a very nice man on his speech and his theme was the seasons of life. We started by writing about the milestones of his son's life right from when he was born until the day he got married. It seemed quite long but it was a very good speech. You can copy that by giving a brief story about each have of your son's life as it happened. 

 

If you want to structure your presentation along these lines, then this guideline can help you come up with things like:

 

  • Day of birth--- Do you remember what happened and how you felt?

 

  • What was he like when he was a little boy---Put down his admirable traits like kindness, activeness, and smartness.

 

Every point you make sure should be elaborated on. For example, if you say your son is kind, you should support it with at least a story of a time he exhibited that aspect of his character.

 

· Talk about his teen years and support it with a story. For example, if you were

 

· Mention his exploits if you want…accomplishments in business, academics, sports, etc.

 

  • Then, talk about how you feel about his choice of spouse…

 

An example is:

Today, we’re the proudest parents ever and we feel so elated to see you getting married to this beautiful bride. That, to us, is a courageous and wise decision because being married to the one you really love is a very enriching experience.

 

That brings me to the question we often get asked the most…

 

How Long Should The Father Of The Groom Speech Be?

 

Now, let me ask you this: do you like a long or short speech? I see you are rooting for something short and I couldn’t agree with you more.

Ok, here’s my candid opinion based on our findings here at standing ovation speeches.

A short speech will suffice if you want to give a simple and sweet speech which is something I always recommend.

 

There's nothing wrong with delivering long speeches either. But ask yourself if you can hold the attention of the audience for a very long time. If you can't, then please stick to something you are comfortable with. 

 

Your goal should be to get the wedding attendees to enjoy your speech. That is what I recommend if you still want to take the long ''road.''

 

Two options come to mind:  

 

· You can do a medium speech

· You can split each of the events we looked at into multiple parts and use portions of it to do several speeches.

 

For example, if you can use parts of it for the rehearsal dinner speech night, wedding reception, or even the engagement party on condition that you will be speaking at different times. 

 

 

 

Now, let’s see…

 

How To End Your Speech With A Bang

If you ever watched a movie that kept you glued to the end, you will most likely notice that every part of the movie hooked you in and if it has a strong finish, that's what will linger in your mind for the rest of your life. 

 

Similarly, if you close your speech well, the wedding guests will never forget what you said at the tail end even if they can't recall other parts of it.

 

If you walk down the street and ask any father if they have any idea on how to end a wedding speech on a strong note, the answer on most minds will be toasting the bride and groom. 

 

Although that is correct, it's by no means the only way of wrapping up on a memorable note. I often spend so much time writing the closing remarks since it's so vital to the success of any presentation and I am going to share with you some of the ideas I employ and how can end well without trying so hard. 

Christian father of the groom wedding speech

 

  • First, you can share some practical advice that has helped in making your own marriage work.

 

Here’s an example:

Bill and Ruth, let me congratulate you both on the occasion of your marriage. Having been married for forty-five (45) years, I have come to the conclusion that forgiving and giving from the heart is the best therapy for a long-lasting marriage.

  • Do you love poems? If you do, then you can use it. Thanks to the power of the internet, anyone can be a poet so to speak. You only need to find an example of love or marriage quotes from this website:

 

May All Good Things Be Yours

Your happiness begins
with your wonderful wedding day.
You'll share everything together;
Through it all, your love will stay.

Congratulations to you,
As you begin your happy life.
May all good things be yours,
New husband and new wife.

By Joanna Fuchs

  • Are you a very religious or a born-again Christian? Then, there are so many bible verses that can spice it up. You may use this well-known bible verse: I Corinthians 13: 3-7(The Message Bible Edition)

3-7 If I give everything I own to the poor and even go to the stake to be burned as a martyr, but I don’t love, I’ve gotten nowhere. So, no matter what I say, what I believe, and what I do, I’m bankrupt without love.

Love never gives up.
Love cares more for others than for self.
Love doesn’t want what it doesn’t have.
Love doesn’t strut,
Doesn’t have a swelled head,
Doesn’t force itself on others,
Isn’t always “me first,”
Doesn’t fly off the handle,
Doesn’t keep score of the sins of others,
Doesn’t revel when others grovel,
Takes pleasure in the flowering of truth,
Puts up with anything,
Trusts God always,
Always looks for the best,
Never looks back,
But keeps going to the end.

 

  • Again, you can end with a funny line or a joke like this one:

Ladies and gentlemen, someone once said that in the first years of marriage, the man speaks and the woman listens. In the second year, the woman speaks and the man listens. In the third year, they both speak and the neighbors listen.

 

That quote can be slightly altered to produce this result:

 

Folks, it goes without saying that women generally like talking while men like doing stuff. That's so true, you know.

So my honest advice to Bill is to keep his mouth shut like a doll and always let Ruth do the talking in the third year and beyond.

You see, your wife will probably get angry and raise her voice to get your attention and you should make sure her concerns are met with empathy, love, and support so you can keep the peace at home.
