Are you wondering how to do that? You don’t have to worry because I am going to share with you time-tested tips and ideas you should know so you can write the best mother of the groom rehearsal dinner speech for your son.

 

 

Most mothers get stuck when thinking of what to say at the rehearsal dinner. For these moms, you have to be endowed with the gift of words in order to capture the attention of the audience.

 

 

Contrary to what most folks think, that is not always true because I have had the good fortune of working with countless mothers, some of whom are writers, and I can assure you that coming up with a great mother of the groom rehearsal dinner speech , is not entirely dependent on your skillset even though it helps to a certain extent.

 

Mother of the groom rehearsal dinner speech for son

 

All you need to put on a good show is a believing heart that you can make it in spite of all the odds.

 

Many schools of thought advocate writing your pre-wedding speech for your child by looking for the right ideas. But I have a different viewpoint based on my years of experience writing speeches.

 

 

Writing a good mother of the groom rehearsal dinner speech is a lot like a traveler about to embark on a journey. You need to prepare before you set off. The mistake I see most mothers make is to write before they prepare.

 

 

By this, I am actually talking about preparing yourself mentally before you even sit down to write something about your son and daughter-in-law.

 

 

Preparing yourself mentally is the best way to take complete control of the situation, particularly if you are nervous. Nervousness is not a terrible thing per se. So, if the thought of standing before your family and friends send a cold shiver down your spine, you need not worry at all.

 

 

 

Rather, that experience should energize you for success. Having those feelings is a sure sign that you either find this endeavor intimidating or you have goofed some time ago when you were asked to speak before a group of people.

 

 

Whatever the case is, just put the past behind you and make it a daily habit by envisioning yourself speaking confidently before the wedding guests. As you keep at this, your fears will calm down and you will be empowered from within to speak with confidence and clarity even if you are as shy as a squirrel.

 

 

 

Another aspect of this involves putting yourself in the mood for the expression of your thoughts and ideas. This is the most important thing you have to consider before you write your speech since it will make things a whole lot easier for you.

 

To get the right ideas and content to create an outline for your mother of the groom rehearsal dinner speech, you should spend some time and try to figure out what goes into making successful speeches.  Mother of the groom rehearsal speech video is one of the best media for getting ideas that will inspire you to come up with good content.

 

 

So, this is what I want you to do now.  Please watch these two videos and make note of ideas you think can enrich your own speech.

 

Here you go: enjoy and learn from both video clips

Mother of The Groom Rehearsal Dinner Speech Sample

 

Good evening  I’m Angela, Alex’s mom. Thanks so much for coming. Alex is my second child and it seems like only yesterday that he came into my life and made me feel so proud to be his mom.

 

Alex was a very witty, brave, and funny little boy.

 

Growing up, Alex was very adventurous. When he was a little boy, he loved eating bananas. Once, he got hungry during the middle of the night and decided to find something to eat.

 

I got up only to find that he was nowhere in sight. So, we looked frantically for him and my heart missed lots of beats.

 

 

Shortly after calling the police, we found him sleeping on top of our refrigerator like a log. The brave little boy had apparently climbed on top of the refrigerator to get a banana and realized he couldn’t get down by himself. So, he decided to make it his bed.

 

 

Needless to say, I was so relieved when we found him.  As I reached to get him down, he hugged me tight and said: ‘’I love you, mommy. But have you forgotten that banana is my life? They make me so happy’’

 

 

When Alex got to his teens, he was very outgoing and friendly.  But what I really admired about him was his sense of perseverance, joyful dedication, and unwavering focus.

 

Mother speech for son at rehearsal dinner

 

I remember in his junior and senior years in high school, he worked at McDonald's. He was so friendly, outgoing, and extremely hardworking that his boss and co-workers liked him very much.

 

 

Subsequently, he became a manager just 6 months after being hired. That inspiring success didn’t get to his head as our son still believed he could still dream and reach for the sky!

 

 

He worked hard and eventually got enlisted in the navy where he is currently serving for the last 7 years.

 

Alex, we are so proud of you. As your mom, all I can say that you’re a blessing to me and our entire family. We couldn’t be more proud that you are going to share your whole life with someone he can’t live without.

 

 

Milda, my son is so blessed to have found you. We admire the way you look out for him and make him so happy. You are very supportive and caring and I am very confident that you will be a fantastic wife and mom. I am honored to be your mother-in-law and I look forward to spending many great moments with you and your family in the years ahead.

 

 

Alex and Milda, congratulations and I am sure we’ve all really enjoyed sharing this special evening with you. You’re a beautiful couple and you have what it takes to make your marriage work as you want it.

 

So, always love each other fully, every day and you will look back on this day with a very grateful heart. God bless you and we wish you the very best in the years to come.

How to Write Your Mother of The Groom Rehearsal Dinner Speech 

 

Most mothers think it’s difficult to draft something like this. But it’s not. If you look at the example once more, you will notice that it has three parts to it. Do you know what they are?

 

 

Ok, I would help you out. If you study it more closely, you will realize that this piece consists of the following elements: body, introduction, and conclusion or the toast.

 

 

Now, let us take it one step at a time. We will focus first on the introduction. Let us take a cursory look at excerpts of the introductory remarks so we can figure out how it is done.

 

‘’ Good evening  I’m Angela, Alex’s mom. Thanks so much for coming. Alex is my second child and it seems like only yesterday that he came into my life and made me feel so proud to be his mom. ‘’

 

 

As you can see from this extract, the introductory remarks comprise of these:

 

  • Name and your relationship to the groom and bride…Angela didn’t mention that.

 

Well, the mother of the groom could have gone further by thanking some individuals who have been a blessing in Alex’s life.

 

Do you remember persons who helped you raise your son? If so, please write down their names and why you want to thank them.

 

For example:

A special thanks go to my father Mike who was and still is our handyman, our advisor, and my pillar of strength and our source of laughter.

 

 

Did you see that?  If someone is deceased or bedridden, you can still mention that. But if you don’t want to say that, you can skip it.

 

 

I always find however that most mothers mention it, particularly if they want to honor the memory of someone who was a huge blessing in his son’s life. Moreover, if you are a single or a widowed mom, you need not mention that explicitly.

 

After expressing appreciation to deserving individuals, you have to start with a bang and that is where most mothers really struggle to come up with the right ideas or content.

 

 

The opening remarks are so important but most mothers give little attention to it because the overwhelming majority of them just don’t know to grab the attention of the wedding guests right from the very start.

 

 

I am happy to share with you some time-tested ideas to help you write a captivating opener.

 

First, you may make your opening lines heartfelt by sharing stories of how you felt when your son was born at the hospital.

 

Here is a short example:

Seeing my son looking so happy takes me back many years to a moment when my heart almost burst with joy, the first time I held my precious baby boy in my arms.

 

Second, you can start on a hilarious note by making fun of the bride and the groom.

 

 

Third, if they have been through a whole lot of tragedies or other setbacks to reach this beautiful milestone, you can talk about it.

 

 

Fourth, you can use any of the following quotes or one-liners to start your rehearsal dinner speech for your son and daughter-in-law.

 

 

''There has never been, nor will there ever be, anything quite so special as the love between the mother and a son.” – Anonymous

 

''A man loves his sweetheart the most, his wife the best, but his mother the longest.” – Irish Proverb

 

“Mothers are inscrutable beings to their sons, always.” – A.E. Coppard

 

''Sons are the anchors of a mother’s life.” – Sophocles

 

''All that I am, or hope to be, I owe to my angel mother.” ― Abraham Lincoln

Using quote # 1…we can start with this touching introduction.

I have had the privilege and honor of sharing my whole life with Chris and I must say that there will never be anything quite as special as the love I have for my only child and son.

 

Did you notice how I used that quote to come up with that? That is how it is done.

 

Now, let us see...

 

How to Write The Content Or Body Of Your Mother of The Groom Rehearsal Dinner Speech

 

We are going to re-look at excerpts of our example to guide us along the way.

 

‘’ Growing up, Alex was very adventurous. When he was a little boy, he loved eating bananas. Once, he got hungry during the middle of the night and decided to find something to eat.

 

I got up only to find that he was nowhere in sight. So, we looked frantically for him and my heart missed lots of beats. ‘’

 

After reviewing samples like this one, most mothers go on to put their thoughts together. Even though that is not wrong per se, it takes the shine out of what would have otherwise been a great presentation.

 

 

Writing a successful mother of the groom rehearsal dinner speech involves these processes:

 

  1. Discovering how such speeches are made which we have already covered above.
  1. Picking a theme for your speech. Depending on who you are, you can decide to compose your message in a witty, dramatic, poetic, hilarious, sentimental, or a combination of two or more styles. From what I know, most mothers of the grooms prefer doing heartfelt and funny speeches.

 

A word of caution here: Make sure you do something you are comfortable with. Just because someone made a funny speech at a rehearsal dinner you were once at doesn’t mean you should opt for that even if you haven’t even made a little child giggle with excitement. Pick something that reflects who you are and stick to it.

 

That way, the wedding guests will see how authentic your toast is.

 

  1. Then, you plan out a structure or outline of your speech by figuring out how you want to it flow or go.

 

For example, you can decide to start from when your son was born until he met the soon-to-be bride or got married.

 

You can also focus on your son’s wonderful character traits and back it up with stories and then say why he will be a loving husband and father.

 

You can also pick a favorite anecdote about your son’s life and use it to write your speech.

 

These are but a few questions that can help you get the right anecdotes. So, please grab your journal and write down answers to the following questions.

 

  • When was your son born?
  • How did you feel when he was born?
  • What were your dreams for him as he grew older?
  • What were the earlier years like?
  • What was he like when he was a toddler or only a little boy?
  • What was he like when he was growing up?

 

Jot down as many stories you can remember about the above questions or anything you wish to add to your speech. Then, put together a rough draft based on your responses.

 

Never mind if what you come up with is as rough as a nutmeg grater. You can smooth the rough edges later by rewriting it over and over.

 

After you have said something about your son, you then turn the spotlight on your daughter-in-law.

 

Here, you can recount things like:

  • How you felt when your son told you about her
  • How you felt when you first met her
  • What you learned about her when you got to know her well
  • Write about her amazing character traits
  • Share why you think she will be an amazing wife and mother
  • Say why you are so happy that she’s joining your family

 

 

Well, if you don’t approve of your son’s choice of spouse, keep it to yourself because the wedding rehearsal dinner is not the venue to share that grievance.

 

Well, if you don’t know her too, well, don’t say that. Instead, you can simply say that she’s a beautiful person and you are sure that she would bring her wonderful qualities to bear as she starts building a life with your precious son.

That said, let us see

How to Write The Ending Of Your Mother of The Groom Rehearsal Dinner Speech

 

Look at how the writer concluded carefully and tell me what your views are.

‘’ congratulations and I am sure we’ve all really enjoyed sharing this special evening with you…So, always love each other fully, every day and you will look back on this day with a very grateful heart. God bless you and we wish you the very best in the years to come.

 

 

Any feedback? That was a simple ending to a simple speech. Just as the introduction should capture the attention of the audience, your conclusion too should end with a bang because it’s what the guests might take home with them.

 

 

If you do a great job at it, it will remain in the minds of the wedding guests for a long time to come.

 

I am sure you would like to wrap up on a gracious note, so, I am going to share with you proven tips that can help you finish strong.

 

  • First, you can simply thank the guests for their time and attention.

 

  • If you have been married for long, you can offer a sweet word of advice based on your own personal marriage experiences. Quotes like those you will find below can make your account much sweeter

 

''Husband and wife relationships are like the relationship between Tom and Jerry. Though they are teasing and fighting, but can’t live without each other.” – Unknown

 

“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

 

  • If you are a deeply religious person or a Christian, you can craft a short faith-based message with some popular bible verses as seen below

 

Song of Solomon 8:6-7: "Set me as a seal upon your heart, as a seal upon your arm, for love is strong as death, jealousy is fierce as the grave. Its flashes are flashes of fire, the very flame of the LORD. Many waters cannot quench love, neither can floods drown it. If a man offered for love all the wealth of his house, he would be utterly despised."

 

 

 Ecclesiastes 4:9: "Two are better than one because they have a good return for their labor: If either of them falls down, one can help the other up. But pity anyone who falls and has no one to help them up. Also, if two lie down together, they will keep warm. But how can one keep warm alone?"

 

 

Proverbs 3:3-4: "Let love and faithfulness never leave you; bind them around your neck, write them on the tablet of your heart. Then you will win favor and a good name in the sight of God and man."

 

 

  • You can also wax poetic by ending with a love or marriage poem. You may use this poem by the great George Elliot.

 

To Be One with Each Other, by George Eliot

What greater thing is there for two human souls,
than to feel that they are joined for life -
to strengthen each other in all labour,
to rest on each other in all sorrow,
to minister to each other in all pain,
to share with each other in all gladness,
to be one with each other in the silent unspoken memories.

 

Taking inspiration from this verse, I quickly wrote this short example:

Love is the best gift to any couple and there’s no greater joy than finding that special person to bear your heart out in good times and the bad. You have found each other to help each other and make memories together because there’s no power greater than two souls united by the bond of love.

 

Did you see how I did that? That’s how poetry is used to enrich rehearsal dinner toast.

 

  • If you have a good singing voice, then you can probably sing that example I just wrote to the rhythm or melody of a well-known song and you will be loved and admired for that.

These are just a few cute ways to go about it. So feel free to do what you think is right for you or even come up with your own style and you will be proud you did.

P.S: Is the thought of giving you a great mother of the groom rehearsal dinner speech toast keeping you up at night? It shouldn’t if you just follow what most moms do. By following this simple plan that's guaranteed to help you write a great mom speech like the one you read above.

Claire was quite skeptical when she came to us but we kept assuring what she will make her son and family proud-and this is what she sent over after the wedding was over
