I am sure you might be wondering how you can easily write a great mother of the bride speech.

The good news is I am going to share with you all the tips, ideas and examples you need to know so you can write something sweet from your heart.

 

The mistake I see most mothers make is to copy bits and pieces of wedding speech examples they find or even adapt it to their own case.

 

That’s not how it works. Even though there several proven ways of cranking up a great speech for your daughter, if you are squeezed for time, have not given a speech before or not even sure where you can start from, then mother of the bride speech examples or templates can help you calm your nerves because they contain tons of valuable ideas and content that can help make your speech a massive hit.

 

But I always advise mothers to use them as a guide since they give you an idea of the format or structure of how wedding speeches are delivered.

There are two kinds of examples: written and visual templates and both serve different but complementary purposes.

Before you even write down your speech for your daughter and son-in-law, you first have to watch a couple of videos to help you get a crystal-clear idea of how mother of the bride speeches are made. 

 

 

Well, I looked around and found these amazing mothers of the bride speech videos from YouTube.

Now, this is what I want you to do now. Grab your pen and journal and then click on the play buttons below and write down ideas you think can help you write the content of your mother of the bride speech.

Mother of the bride speech toast example/template

 

Good evening and welcome everyone!

I’m Margaret, Carline’s proud mom.

It gives me great pleasure and honor to see the smiling faces of so many people who love and cherish Dan and Carline and both families.

 

We have waited for months for this special time and on behalf of my family, I would like to thank everyone who has come from near and far to share in our joy and happiness.

Carline, my only daughter is getting married and the only moment I felt this over-the-moon happy was when she was born after waiting to conceive for 10 long years.

Carline was always an active little girl who loved out the outdoors more than anything else.

 

She had so much enthusiasm for anything. Whether she was climbing trees which she loved so much, outside playing with her lab, or busily riding her dirt bike through the trails, she gave it her all.

Growing up, Carline played basketball and softball which were bonding sports for us.

 

I was lucky to have coached her for a few years. But what I will never forget was the fact she always made family vacations fun and memorable.

 

Carline was 14 years old studying French and she knew the basics, enough to get us by.  So I said to her: why don’t we take a trip to Paris? She agreed and off we went to Paris!

 

There was a time when we were on our way to the city from our hotel and we got stuck there for about three hours!  At that point, I was totally drenched in sweat and on the brink of despair until two men came to our help and rescued us and you should have seen how relieved we were when we were totally set free from that small prison!

 

Carline loved reading too and it was always a joy to see her curled up in bed with a book in his hand and she ended up being a smart lady. 

 

She was so focused, so committed and dedicated to her work at home and in school and eventually went off to college where she succeeded in getting her bachelor’s degree in just 2 years!

 

How to write a heartfelt mother of the bride wedding speech

 

Carline, I am so proud of you and everything you’ve achieved down the road of life!

 

Carline, my dream has always been to see you live a happier and a more fulfilling life!

 

But, you ended up making me better mom more than I could ever imagine! We have been through our high and low moments and your love and support for me has always seen me through the good times and bad.

Dan, every mom hopes and prays that her daughter finds someone like you to love and cherish her.

Your words and deeds speak volumes that you love and cherish Dan with your whole heart.

You are polite, thoughtful, caring, and very respectful.  You’re also a great cook who always surprises her with new dinners! What more could we ask for? 

 

Dan and Carline, you’re well suited for each other. You are both smart and make good decisions and have a lot of things in common.  It is pure joy to be with you today.

 

However, the journey of marriage is a lot like a roller-caster. You have extreme highs and you can have some pretty extreme lows, but the ride is worth it!

 

So, always be each other’s best friend in good times and bad, honor each other, be kind, be sweet, hug and kiss a lot, it’s good for you.

 

As you keep at it, you will never forget this beautiful day!  God bless you!

Now, let us see how this short piece was written.

Well, if you study the above wedding toast very carefully, you will realize that it has some basic components we were taught at school about how essays are written.

 

I know it’s been decades since you graduated high school, so I would like to help you with this.

Did you notice how the above template began with an introduction by Margaret?

Here’s the entire thing though if you have probably forgotten about it now.  Please take note of the underlined phrase.

 

''Good evening and welcome everyone!

I’m Margaret, Carline’s proud mom.

It gives me great pleasure and honor to see the smiling faces of so many people who love and cherish Dan and Carline and both families.

We have waited for months for this special time and on behalf of my family, I would like to thank everyone who has come from near and far to share in our joy and happiness.''

Carline, my only daughter is getting married‘’

The portions of the text not underlined are as easy as shelling peas because it’s the most common way of starting a wedding toast.

 

Here, you simply mention your name and your relationship with the bride and groom. Then, you proceed to thank people who have had tremendous impact on your daughter’s life.

People like

  1. the father of the bride
  2. uncles and aunts of the bride
  3. the bride’s grandparents
  4. the family of the groom for their love and support

 

After thanking the above personalities, you have to kick start with the right level of enthusiasm and this part of your intro needs to be engaging enough to make everyone want to listen to the rest of the story and not intuitively conclude that another boring wedding speech is on the way!

 

To make your opening remarks very unique and memorable, you could simply use one or more of the following ideas for your opening remarks.

 

First, you can compare how you feel on the wedding night to how you felt when your daughter came into your life. An example has been culled from the mother of the bride speech template above

‘’ Carline, my only daughter is getting married and the only moment I felt this over-the-moon happy was when she was born after waiting to conceive for 10 long years.‘’

 

Second, you can start with a joke. Here’s an example to illustrate this point.

 

It’s funny how our life turns out to me. When Martha was a little girl, she said she was never going to marry because having her toys around was more than enough to keep her through life. That became a running joke in the family. So we nicknamed her Miss Never Get Married and she was fine with it until she met Ben.

Today, this same lady is getting married to …’’

 

Now, don’t you think that would make people roll in their seats with laughter? That’s one of the surest ways of grabbing their attention and even breaking the ice when you grab the microphone.

 

Third, you might want to start with something that will touch hearts.

You could use a memorable story about events that happened prior, before or after your daughter born.

If that doesn’t work for you, you can start with quotes or witty lines as they can absolutely enrich your wedding speech for your daughter and son in law.

 

Below are some great quotes you can use.

a.      Words are not enough to express the unconditional love that exists between a mother and a daughter.” – Caitlin Houston

b.     “Mother and daughter from the start. Best friends forever from the heart.” – 

c.“The relationship between parents and children, but especially between mothers and daughters, is tremendously powerful, scarcely to be comprehended in any rational way.” – Joyce Carol Oates

d.                       A mom is a daughter’s ‘first’ friend. And, through life, becomes her best friend.” – Vicki Reece

e.To my daughter. Never forget that I love you. Life is filled with hard times and good times. Learn from everything you can. Be the woman I know you can be. Mom”

 

Can you write a very simple but captivating opener with any of the above quotes?  I can see you doubting yourself…Please give it a try and you'll certainly end up with something far better than you ever imagined.

 

Ok, can I help? Ok, if I were you, I would have started like this

There is this quote that says a mom is a daughter’s first friend and through life, she becomes her best friend.

Amanda has been my best friend since she saved my life on a dreary day

 

Don’t you think everyone will be eager to know what really happened on that day set the ball rolling with that story?  

 

I think we have had enough of that. Let’s now see how we can put together…

 

The Content or Structure of Your Wedding Toast for Your Daughter

… Taking cues the mother of the bride sample or template above.

 

Another mistake I see most mothers make is to write their wedding toasts without first finding out what goes into writing a stellar one.

Don’t get me wrong. I am not in any way saying that you are hit with a bout of inspiration, you can’t write a great piece all in one sitting.

 

Wedding toast for my daughter and son-in-law

 

You can! But let’s face it. How many of us are that gifted? I guess a few.

This is why you need to follow the simple and proven plan I am going to share with you so you can come up with great ideas for your wedding speech for daughter even if you are horrible speaker or writer.

 

First, you have to decide how many minutes you want your speech to last.

You shouldn’t dwell so much about the length. As long as, it captures what you really want to say in an engaging manner, then, you can be sure that it would go down well with everyone.

 

Second, decide on what kind of speech you really want to make. Do you want to capture details about your daughter’s life in a rhyming, poetic, sing-song, or even in a storytelling format?

 

Finally, you have to develop the outline of your presentation. Here’s where stories about your daughter’s life come in.

 

Do you want to share stories about your daughter’s childhood, teenage years, adult years or any story that really stands out?

 

I once reviewed a speech a couple of months ago for one mom and it felt like I was reading her child’s biography. It was so boring and lifeless that I was asked to give life to it!

You see, all you need is a handful of good-to -hear stories that you think it’s worth sharing.

 

Two or three is okay though. If you have several heartwarming stories, you can pick your favorite ones from the big pool. As you do, just choose stories that would not embarrass her in anyway unless of course she would be happy to hear that said on her wedding day.

 

If your daughter doesn’t enjoy being in the spotlight, you can simply tell her how proud you are of her and express joy that she is getting married to the man of her dreams and it would work beyond your wildest dream.

 

By the way, let me remind you that once you get to work on it, it might not come out the way you wanted it on your first attempt. You just have to rework it until you are happy with your own work.

 

Action Tip: Sit down for a moment and reflect on the stories you wish to use for the bride and your son-in-law and pick at least two that really resonate with you.

How To Use Mother Of The Bride Speech Examples/Templates To Write A Memorable Conclusion

 

If you ask me, another writer or even a successful speech giver what part of your mother of the bride wedding speech, you should pay particular attention to, they will tell you it’s the conclusion.

 

Here’s why it’s so important to get it right as well as ways to write a darn good one that would make everyone wish your speech never comes to an end.

 

First, it brings closure to your delivery and gives room to the next speaker (if there are any) to take over from you.

Second, your closing remarks is what everyone will remember most particularly if there’s a catchy line in there and your family and friends might ask for copies of your mother’s wedding toast for your daughter.

 

You need not sweat over how to write your closing remarks because there are so many proven ideas and tips that can help you do just that and I am happy to share some of them with you.

 

First, if you are a deeply religious soul or a good Christian, you can use some bible verses or scriptural references to embellish your conclusion.

 

Any of the following verses can help you to wrap up on a bright note.

 

Bible Verse # 1: James 1: 17 Every good and perfect gift is from above, coming down from the Father of the heavenly lights, who does not change like shifting shadows.

 

Bible Verse #2: 1 Corinthians 16:14. Be completely humble and gentle; be patient, bearing with one another in love.

 

Bible Verse #3: 1 Peter 4:8, NIV: "Above all, love each other deeply, because love covers over a multitude of sins.

 

Using the bible verse#1: ‘’James 1: 17 Every good and perfect gift is from above, coming down from the Father of the heavenly lights, who does not change like shifting shadows.’’, we can come up with this short example

Your marriage is God’s best gift you so always hold on to each other and your love for each other will stand the test of time.

 

Second, you can wax poetic if you are a good with words. Let me add that may simply look up poem on the internet if you are not blessed with the skill of writing. I found this beautiful poem online but please don’t copy it. Let it rather keep your creative juices flowing.

 

I Rely On You By Hovis Presley

I rely on you
like a camera needs a shutter
like a gambler needs a flutter
like a golfer needs a putter
like a buttered scone involves some butter

I rely on you
Like an acrobat needs ice-cool nerve
like a hairpin needs a drastic curve
like an HGV needs endless derv
like an outside left needs a body swerve

I rely on you
like a handyman needs pliers
like an auctioneer needs buyers
like a laundromat needs driers
like The Good Life needed Richard Briers

I rely on you.

 

Can you rework to suit the bride and groom? Not as hard as you think. So please do your best to get it done.

 

To give you a hint, I can start like this:

 

‘’ Dan and Amanda, marriage is all about relying on each other.  In our lives, we all need someone to lean on. You need parents and support of family and friends to reach this far. So, if you want to go farther, then you need each other like we all need air and you will reach for the stars!   Always remember to rely on each other because that’s where your strength lies‘’

 

Did you notice how I simply used the words rely on each other to compose my thoughts? That’s how it’s done. If you are not very creative, you can simply use the poem as is and customized it a bit.

 

Third, if you don’t have anything at all to say, you can just borrow the concluding remarks of the mother of the bride speech template/example above.

 

‘’ Dan and Carline, you’re well suited for each other. You are both smart and make good decisions and have a lot of things in common.  It is pure joy to be with you today.

However, the journey of marriage is a lot like a roller-caster. You have extreme highs and you can have some pretty extreme lows, but the ride is worth it!

So, always be each other’s best friend in good times and bad, honor each other, be kind, be sweet, hug and kiss a lot, it’s good for you.

 

As you keep at it, you will never forget this beautiful day!  God bless you!  ‘’
