Wedding Welcome Speech By Father Or Mother Of The Bride

 

Are you the father or mother of the bride? And are you looking forward to writing a memorable wedding reception or rehearsal dinner welcome speech?

I have heard several wedding welcome speeches and I must confess that they are kind of pathetic and really boring to say the least!

 

Well, I won’t put the blame on any father or mother of the bride because we have grown so accustomed to how wedding reception welcome speeches are routinely delivered at reception or rehearsal dinners that most parents of the bride as well as the guests don’t attach any serious to it at all.

 

Most wedding welcome speeches typically goes like this:

‘’’Friends and family of the bride and groom, welcome to this most important day in the lives of this lovely couple. Now, we are about to start the wedding reception and what a joy it is to see friends and family and loved ones who loves them with their whole hearts….’’

 

I can go on and on but I think that is something we often hear at most weddings or rehearsal dinners. There’s nothing wrong with giving these brief remarks.

But I personally find that example and several others very static and uninspiring.

There are several ways you can bring your wedding welcome address to life and I am going to share with you a few practical ideas you can use to jazz up your father or mother of the bride wedding welcome speech.

 

But first, let’s get a few things right about writing and making speeches in general.

Most fathers or mothers of the brides are scared to death when they are asked to give speeches are weddings. As you know, giving a speech is not an easy walk in the park even for very accomplished public speakers.

 

Whenever you are asked to address a crowd of people, your mind will relay very tortuous images of when you failed to impress the audience. If you dwell too much on it, it will cause your mind to wander off and over-magnify your fears.

 

However, you can channel that anxiety into something good by trying to leave the past in the past and envisioning yourself speaking confidently before your friends and family.

 

Your wedding reception or rehearsal dinner speech will set the tone for the rest of the evening and you really can’t afford to let nervousness consume the better part of you.

 

All you need is to believe that you are going to make a difference in spite of your earlier setbacks. I believe so much in you and I know you can.

 

The second step is to figure out wedding welcome speeches are made. Youtube.com is replete with examples of videos about wedding welcome speeches.

 

So, please go grab your pen and note pad and put down ideas, and thoughts you think can help enrich your opening remarks as you watch a couple of them.

 

By the way, I found these good examples and I hope you learn a thing or two from watching them.

Having watched that, let us look at clever ways to make your wedding welcome speech for your daughter very unique.

 

First, if you can write a faith-based one if you are a very spiritual or a strong believer in God. You also can begin with a simple prayer or a bible verse, Once, I was asked unexpectedly to give a welcome address at our church’s end of year dinner and I used Psalm 133 to write this

‘’ First and foremost, I want to thank God almighty for such a time like this. My heart also goes out to the elders of the church for being with us tonight. And to you seated, it’s a joy to see you here.

 

Scripture says in Psalm 133 that how good it is when brothers and sisters come together in unity because being united in love is like a precious ointment running down Aaron’s beard.

Brothers and sisters, we are united in love tonight to thank God for his abundant love and blessings and to feast together….’’

 

 

If you are a Christian couple, you can tweak that a bit to suit the occasion. Can you please give it a try?

 

Second, you can simply write one of those usual fathers or mother of the bride wedding welcome speeches and then render it in a nice piece of music if you have a good voice. You can sing it to the rhythm of a well-known song.

A much easier way of making your remarks quite different is to speak together as husband and wife. If you are still married, you can speak in turns and simply express gratitude to everyone for coming.

 

By making a joint father or mother of the bride wedding welcome speech, you both will be seen as a lovely couple whose love has stood the test of time. I think you should consider this. What do you think about that though?

Additionally, you can start with a quote about the power of love and how it has brought the couple thus far.  You may use any of these quotes to start with.

 

“Power at its best is love implementing the demands of justice, and justice at its best is power correcting everything that stands against love.” ― Martin Luther King Jr.

 

“Love is life. All, everything that I understand, I understand only because I love. Everything is, everything exists, only because I love.”  ― Leo Tolstoy

 

“Love is our essential nutrient. Without it, life has little meaning. It’s the best thing we have to give and the most valuable thing we receive. It’s worthy of all the hullabaloo.”

― Cheryl Strayed

 

Well, I want to show you how you can use the underlined quote to write a captivating wedding welcome speech. 

Please watch me as I do that.

 

Ladies and Gentlemen, if you truly love someone, the most precious gift you can give them is your support and presence.

I know many of you have overcome all odds to be with us here tonight and I am incredibly thankful to everyone who has come from all over the place to celebrate with Dan and Linda. By coming, you have shown this lovely couple that the best thing we to give and the most valuable thing we receive in life is love.

I hope you noticed how I threw in that quote skillfully? If you can do that, you will always have lots of admirers who will tell you that you are such a great speaker.

 

That is not all, however. If the groom’s family is from another country where English is not the first language or they are traveling from their native country to attend the wedding, you can give them an element of surprise by delivering your remarks in their native language.

 

For example, if they are coming from France, you can start like this.

Good evening and welcome everyone to Dan and Melissa’s wedding reception (Please note: you are only including that because of the English speakers)

Bonjour et merci à tous d'être ici aujourd'hui. Pour ceux d'entre vous qui ne me connaissent pas, je suis  Danny, c'est comme ça que je me présentais il y a 22 ans quand nous avons déménagé en France, maintenant je dis - Je m'appelle Danny, et je suis la papa très fière d’Alice !

Nous attendons ce moment spécial depuis des mois et au nom de ma famille, je tiens à remercier tous ceux qui sont venus de près ou de loin pour célébrer le mariage d’Alice et Dan.

 

If you can’t speak French, you can ask the groom or one of his relatives for help if you want to go this route.

 

Moreover, you can start with any story and connect it somewhat to your welcome remarks.

I hope this short example clear things up.

Once upon a time, there was a grand wedding in the animal kingdom. All the living creatures in the jungle were invited to the wedding feast. It so happened that the day coincided with the anniversary of the lions who had won the victory at war some 30 years ago.

 

Out of fear and respect for the couple Mr. and Mrs. Lion, the animals decided to hold a joint feast to honor the roaring couple as well as their comrades who shed their precious blood in the war.

 

Mr. Lion was asked to present the welcome address and this was what he said

‘’ Ladies and gentlemen, thank you so much that you didn’t take the love you have for us for granted. I also admire you for coming out to honor our fallen heroes ‘’

 

Ladies and gentlemen, just like Mr. Lion, I want to thank you for coming out to celebrate the marriage of our daughter and my newly minted son-in-law.

 

Don’t you think saying something close to that if not better will turn things up?

Another way of bonding with the wedding guests is by flattering them and thanking them for coming before you deliver your short father of the mother of the bride's wedding welcome address.

 

You can compliment them on their good looks and anything you find interesting, funny, or valuable about them.  

 

If you make them a part of your speech, they will not forget you for that even if your speech is not a particularly good one.  But don’t overdo it, though.  Besides, your words of affection should come from your heart.

 

Another excellent way of making this work is by starting with a story. Remember, your speech shouldn’t simply ‘’welcome’’ the guests as most folks do it. Do you remember a story about your marriage?

 

Do you still recall a poignant remark someone delivered at a wedding you were at? Or even what your daughter and son-in-law went through prior to their wedding?

 

If you do, you can reflect on that and say what you have learned about their persistence and tie it to your welcome address particularly if the wedding guests have traveled miles to grace the occasion.

 

If that won’t work, you can go sprinkle your toast with some love or kindness quotes.

Below are just a few witty lines you can employ.

‘’Let us always meet each other with smile, for the smile is the beginning of love.’’ Mother Teresa

‘’Love is always bestowed as a gift - freely, willingly, and without expectation. We don't love to be loved; we love to love.’’- Leo Buscaglia

‘’I shall pass through this world but once. Any good, therefore, that I can do or any kindness I can show to any human being, let me do it now. Let me not defer it or neglect it, for I shall not pass this way again.’’- Stephen Grellet

’Kindness and a generous spirit go a long way. And a sense of humor. It's like medicine - very healing.’’- Max Irons

"Wherever there is a human being, there is an opportunity for a kindness." -Lucius Annaeus Seneca

 

Let me illustrate using the underlined words above.

Nothing gives my wife and me deep satisfaction that seeing you all here. I keep saying that love can’t be complete without giving people whenever I am at any function because the abundant display of love and kindness by friends and family is what makes the world go around.  Some of you have known the couple since they were born a little over 24 years ago and have proved over and over that you love them.

 

I am sure your loving support, encouragement, and prayers have brought them thus far and only God knows where things would be like if you were not in their lives.

 

It’s such a blessing to see you all tonight and to welcome you to their rehearsal dinner which I know will go down as one to remember. Thanks again and God bless you for being with us tonight.

 

Did you see how I squeezed in those words from the quotes? That’s how it's done.
