Mother Of The Groom Speech (Toast) : You Can Laugh At Your Mother Of The Groom Wedding Speech Worries And Come Up With The Best Speech Ever If You Simply Follow This Simple Guide

Wedding speech by mom of the groom to son and daughter-in-law

A couple of months ago, a mother of the groom wrote to us saying that she needed help with her speech but simply had no clue about how to come up with something memorable.

From our conversations, it was very obvious that she was scared to death about this whole thing and even though our hands were full, we helped her deliver the best speech of the night and she wrote back to say that...

 

 

From helping moms from the around, we’ve seen that most mothers, particularly those who are not good speakers get so intimidated when they are asked by their sons to say something at the wedding.

 

You see, saying something memorable about your son and daughter-in-law is a real labor of love you simply can’t take for granted because it’s sure to earn you the respect of the wedding guests, your family, friends, and loved ones.

 

I know that nothing can compare to the love you have for you and let me congratulate you on sacrificing so much to give him the future he truly deserves.

Now, that he’s getting married to the woman of his dreams and you should all you can to ensure that your speech is on point.

 

Please don’t worry if you don’t have a way with words or you are not a confident speaker because I am going to share with you tips, templates, ideas, and examples I personally use to write speeches for mothers of the groom.

 

But before we get into all the details, let’s closely look at a critical issue that prevents even the most eloquent mom from performing so well on D-day and how to turn the tide on these challenges. 

 

Get This Right And You Will Make It

If you have ever given a speech your whole lifetime, chances are you might be overcome with nerves when you are asked to speak before a crowd.

 

Regardless of how you fared, that performance might leave you with unpleasant memories and it can ultimately affect your performances whenever you are asked to speak even before a small group of people.

 

Even if you have ever failed to live up to expectation, you can turn the tables in your favor by renewed your mind and that simply means developing a positive mental attitude.

 

Believe it or not, you can make a difference this time around by putting behind your past flops and embarrassments and believing that you can no matter how you are feeling at the moment.

 

By doing so, you will be empowered from within and you will bubble over with the confidence you absolutely need to speak confidently with poise, flair, and confidence.

 

Remember that journey of a thousand miles begins with a step and that step here should be a healthy mental disposition which is the bedrock of your ''speaking success'' so to speak.

Having said that, let’s now look at ...

 

How To Get The Right Ideas To Help You Compose A Sweet Mother Of The Groom Toast

 

Before you even write a single, you need to gather certain facts and ideas to help you put the content of your speech together.

I call this part the pre-writing mode as it puts you in the mood for the clarity of your thoughts.

 

Guess what? One of the best places to hunt for ideas is the youtube platform as well as several other video sharing platforms you know of. Once you get there, you then plug in the keyword you have in mind.

You may pop in words like a speech by a single mom to his son on the wedding day, mother of the groom speech video, best ever speech by mother of the groom, etc.

Wait for a couple of them to pop up and watch a few or more clips if you have much time.

 

As you keeping those clips, put down words and phrases that speak to you and your particular personality. As you do, ask yourself which of those ideas you feel you can incorporate into your toast.

By the way, this is a short video to help you in this endeavor.

Please did you watch it? And did you find it helpful?  And do you think you can use the ideas for your own delivery?

 

That brings me to the next point…

 

How To Use Mother Of The Groom Speech Examples

 

I have had the distinct privilege of reviewing mother of the groom wedding speech samples and I often notice that a lot of wedding speakers simply copy and paste the examples they find online without properly improving and refining it to suit their own style and that doesn’t always contribute to making their speeches unique in any way.

 

In this post, I shared how to make the most out of mother of the groom speech samples.

 

Today, I am going to share with you a short mother of the groom speech example. Afterward, we will break it down bit by bit to see what went into creating it so you can get a clear idea of how to write a speech that will get you tons of compliments. Are you ready?

 

Ok, here you go

Good evening and welcome everyone. I am Kyle and I am the mother of the groom.

 

Mark, I was overwhelmed with pride when you exchanged promises with Cindy. I couldn’t help but remember all the great moments, you and I have together, right from the day you came into my life.

 

From spending precious moments with you when you were just a little boy to when you told me that you have found the person you are going to spend the rest of your life with, you have always given me many reasons to be so proud of you.

 

As a little boy, you were so sweet, kind, and fun to be around. I still recall how you wore my dress with ruby red shoes to match and sang with pretend microphones to entertain us whenever we met as a family.

 

Growing up, you followed in your dad’s stead and you started fishing at such an early age. One time we went fishing and Mark caught bass and was so upset that he could not get the hook of its mouth.

 

Worried that the fish might die, Mark took it home and kept in a bucket full of cold water and managed to get the hook out of his mouth after trying so hard for close to four hours before releasing it back to the lake.

 

That sense of determination continued well into his teens as he always put his whole heart to whatever he set his sights on and always came out on top.

Mark, we are so proud of the man you have become and nothing gives me joy to see that you are getting married to Cindy.

 

M3

 

You’re about to embark on the biggest adventure of your life and I am confident that together with Cindy, your future will be so bright.

 

Cindy, thank you so much for making my son so happy; and for standing by him all these years.  I love you so much and beyond thrilled for your future life together.

 

Mark and Cindy, all you need for this journey is a spirit of togetherness, love, forgiveness and you will make your house a true home. We love you both and wish you a lifetime of love and happiness.

 

God bless you.

 

Can you write something close to that or even something similar?

It’s not too hard as you probably think. Well, I promised to elaborate on how we came up with that, so, first and foremost, let’s re-look at the introductory remarks of the speech above.

 

Below is an excerpt…

''Good evening and welcome everyone. I am Kyle and I am the mother of the groom.''

 

The opening line is rather short and pretty bland. But we can throw in a few details into the mix so it comes together very well.

To make it stand out, you can write down the name of people you want to thank.

Thank persons who have contributed to making him who he is. People like his dad, grandparents, your own parents for helping you raise him.

You may add others like the mom and dad of the bride for their help and support and for welcoming your son into their family.

Then, you should thank the guests for coming out from far and near.

This is your assignment: Scroll up and look at the introduction once more and list all the persons you want to express gratitude to and see if you can come up with a brief and good salutation.

If you are struggling to do that, then this short example can inspire you to come up with one.

 

Good evening and welcome everyone to Mark and Cindy’s rehearsal dinner. I am Angela, Mark’s mother.

Thank you so much for coming from far and near to celebrate the joining of this happy couple and I would like to take a moment to thank everyone who has helped to make this a night to remember.

Before I get started, I want to take time to thank Angela and Michelle for helping the happy couple plan this fantastic wedding.

I want to extend a big thank you to Dr. Anry who came all the way from Tulip to officiate the ceremony tomorrow as he’s known the couple since they were high school sweethearts.

 

I hope you can write that?

 

Closely connected to that are these sentimental thoughts:

''Mark, I was overwhelmed with beautiful emotions of pride when you exchanged promises with Cindy''

 

It goes without saying that it takes just a moment to leave a lasting, positive impression on someone you are meeting for the very first time and that’s so true.

Speech by mother to son and daughter-in-law on wedding

Some of the wedding guests who will be attending the wedding rehearsal or the reception are people you are going to meet for the very first time and even if you are a poor speaker, they might not notice it until you are through with your message.

 

What this means is that you should put in extra effort into coming with a gripping introduction as Angela did.

 

I know you’re probably wondering about how to write a heart-gripping introduction and I am happy to share with how you can start on a very bright note.

 

First, you can start by sharing your personal feeling about how you felt when your son was born as you saw above.

 

Second, you can share how you feel about his wedding day.

 

Moreover, if you are a naturally funny person, you can get everyone grinning from ear to ear with a hilarious anecdote.

 

Once, a woman shared an incident with me when her daughter was born.  She said they decided to nickname her Rocky because she wasn’t too good looking at birth. She absolutely loved that story and asked that it be included in her speech.

 

I felt it wasn’t right to add that to her speech because that would be utterly embarrassing. But she stood her grounds and we came up with a great introduction.

 

Again, if you know of any good quotes about sons, you can use them creatively.  Here are a few of them

 

''There’s an endearing tenderness in the love of a mother to a son that transcends all other affections of the heart ''---Washington Irwin

 

''Happy is the son whose faith in his mother remains unchallenged ''---Louisa May Alcott

 

''Every mother hopes that her daughter will marry a better man than she did, and is convinced that her son will never find a wife as good as her father did.''----Martin Anderson Nexo

 

''Sons are the anchors of a mother’s life ''---Sophocles

 

''A mothers love is patient and forgiving when all others are forsaking, it never fails or falters, even though the heart is breaking''--- Agatha Christie

 

''To a mother, a son is never a  fully grown; and a son is never a fully grown man until he understands and accepts this about his mother ''--- Unknown

I particularly love the last quote very much!

 

Having said that, let’s look at how to write the body or story of your speech.

 

Once again, let’s look at parts of it to get a sense of where this is headed

 

''As a little boy, you were so sweet, kind, and fun to be around. I still recall how you wore my dress with ruby red shoes to match and sang with pretend microphones to entertain us whenever we met as one family''

 

Let me ask you this: What did you notice from reading that extract? As you review it, you will realize that it’s essentially a story outline of the life of Angela’s precious boy.

 

This is the part of your speech that everyone will be eager to listen to because we all love stories. So this is what I suggest you should do right away if you quickly want to come up with the right stuff for this all-important part of your presentation.

 

Please pick up a piece of paper and provide answers to the following questions:

 

  1. What was he like when he was a toddler?
  2. Why was he always a source of joy and laughter?
  3. Do you have a fond memory or hilarious story you wish to add to your speech?
  4. How did you feel when he brought the bride home?
  1. What were your impressions when you met her for the very first time? Remember, not to say anything negative….It’s their happy day, so it’s best to put her in a better light…

 

If you have written your responses next to each question, you can begin by putting your ideas together using that speech example as a template.

 

To make things easier, you can start with a good story about his childhood before moving on to his teen years and finally stating why you are so proud of him.

There’s nothing wrong with adding his accomplishments in sports, personal life, or in school.

 

Well, some mothers think it’s obnoxious to include that. So if you are in that same league, then you have to avoid tooting your own horn.

 

Please bear in mind that the guidelines above can be very useful when you want your speech to flow from his childhood through adulthood.

Mother of the groom rehearsal dinner speech

If you want your mother of the groom wedding speech to dwell on an aspect of his life, say only his growing up years, then you can simply skip that.

 

Some mothers simply start their speeches and end with something like this

''Even though today is one of the best days of your life, I always like to think that the day you were born was the most memorable day of your life. Over the years, you have grown into a very kind and generous young man and I am so proud of the man you have become.''

 

More often than not, your first draft won’t make look so good but you shouldn’t let that dampen your spirit. You can shelf it for a few hours and come back to refine it till you are completely happy with it.

Now, let’s see...

 

How To End Your Speech With A Bang!

 

There are several ways of wrapping up your speech and I am going to share with you some ideas of how to do that since your closing lines are likely to linger on the minds of the guests for a long time to come.

 

So, you can employ one or more of the following ideas at the end of your wedding speech.

 

If you are a Christian or a very religious person, then you might have to consider ending with a verse from the bible. My very good friend Christine loves Psalm 128: 1-6 so much.

Psalm 128

1

Psalm 128 A song of ascents.

1

Blessed are all who fear the LORD, who walk in his ways.

2

You will eat the fruit of your labor; blessings and prosperity will be yours.

3

Your wife will be like a fruitful vine within your house; your sons will be like olive shoots around your table.

4

Thus is the man blessed who fears the LORD.

5

May the LORD bless you from Zion all the days of your life; may you see the prosperity of Jerusalem,

6

and may you live to see your children's children. Peace be upon Israel.

 

That verse can be used as a prayer or even a blessing.

Again, love or marriage poem can work words even if you are not a poetess. Just imagine how proud your son will be of you if you close with these beautiful lines

Today will be perfect in every way

A beautiful fairy tale

For your wedding day

The theme of your day

Is to have love and laughter

And to live your days

Happily ever after

Living happily is

What we need to survive,

So how does one keep

The magic alive?

How do you light a spark

That never goes out?

And how does one live a life

Without fear or doubt?

 

How do some people manage

To keep their love strong?

And how do some couples

Always feel like they belong?

What do you need to do

To stay in love forever

And make each day special

And grow fonder together?

 

Well, these very questions

You must address every day

You must take the time

To go out of your way

To always share love

And always share laughter

To do whatever it takes

To live happily ever after.

Here’s a recipe

I think is a must

So let’s begin with

Always having trust

Don’t forget it’s important

To have total respect,

And to always stay loyal

To keep your love perfect

 

You must communicate each and every day.

Three special little words

You must never forget to say

‘’ I love you’’ it’s amazing

How these words make you feel

Happy, safe, and valued

And they will keep your love real

A simple act of kindness

Goes a long, long way

Blend it with understanding

And you can’t go astray

Don’t forget friendship.

 

It will help you to cope

Add a sprinkle of faith

And an abundance of hope

Remember your smile

It’s beautiful to see

It can brighten one’s day

So my wish for both of you

Is you always have love and laughter,

And I pray that you will enjoy

Your happily ever after!

 

Wow! I loved every bit of this poem. Don’t you think it can be used for an entire speech if you really want to wax poetic about the couple?

 

Even all three tips work well in every situation; I always find that the best way to draw the curtain is by giving the couple some marriage advice.
