Do you know this about Yourself?

 

There’s a special blessing for fathers who are blessed to have daughters. If you raise her well and you are always there for her, then the love between the two of you will last forever.

 

I am sure the love between you and your daughter runs deep and on the most special day of her life, you absolutely have to tell your friends and family how proud you are of her and what she means to you.

 

Father of the bride speech templates for my daughter

 

The surest way of expressing the deepest sentiments of your heart is by giving a heartfelt father of the bride wedding speech or toast. I know it’s your dream to make a great one at your darling daughter’s wedding. But, you do really have what it takes to make everyone say great things about your speech and possibly make them stand on their feet to give you a hand?

 

In a bid to write the best ever father of the bride wedding toast, most dads scrounge for bits and pieces of information about their daughter’s life to compose what they think is a great wedding tribute for their daughter.

 

 

This practice, on one hand, is not always as easy as most dads have imagined it to be and often end up composing a wedding speech that doesn’t actually reflect who their daughter is and their relationship with her.

Your ability to distill memorable memories from your daughter's life into a cohesive narrative would not only make her proud but also connect you to the invited guests.

 

Please Do This Instead If You Ever Get Stuck

 

To this end, I'm putting forward various suggestions, ideas, and examples to help you write a father of the bride wedding speech toast that is sincere, funny, relevant, and worthy of being given on your daughter's special day!

 

If you are short on time, have never delivered a speech before, or aren't sure where to begin, father of the bride speech samples or templates can help you feel better and calm your nerves since they include a plethora of useful ideas and material that can help you make your speech a smashing success!

 

I do, however, advise fathers not to place too much reliance on them. They are just examples to give you an idea of the kind of structure and tone you may choose to use in your own presentation.

Examples may be either textual or visual, and each has a distinct yet complementary function.

 

Prior to drafting your speech, you should first watch a few videos to familiarize yourself with how previous fathers of the bride have delivered their remarks.

After taking a look around and doing a little brainstorming, I found these beautiful fathers of the bride toast examples from YouTube videos to share with you.

 

Now is the time for you to take their pen and notebook, press the play button, and jot down any and all of the potential thoughts that come to mind while the video plays. These would serve as a model or framework for the father of the bride's speech.

Father Of The Bride Speech Sample/ Example

Good evening, and greetings to everyone who took out time for the wedding of my lovely daughter and son-in-law.

 

On behalf of Jen and me, I'd want to begin by expressing our gratitude for your presence today.

             

We have been looking forward to this moment for months, and on behalf of my family, I would like to express our gratitude to everyone who has traveled from near and far to participate in our pleasure and happiness.

 

 

Since the day Sarah was born, I've been looking forward to this moment. My first kid was born to me. My one and only daughter. Everything about today is the stuff of fathers' aspirations, desires, and fantasies.

 

 

It may surprise some of you to learn that our first child struggled with weight for almost two years before becoming healthy and strong again. It was many years before she stopped wiggling her legs and she did that in the womb as well. We now consider that to be her very first exercise regimen.

 

 

The vast majority of dads think that their children are the brightest youngsters alive. Sarah was a bright young girl who quickly mastered the spelling and definition of every new word she encountered in the many books that were read to her.

 

Speech for my daughter on her wedding day

 

I made up tales to keep her entertained, and I often read fascinating articles from the Kids Magazine to engage her in a lively conversation about the stories. On Saturdays, when she was approximately seven years old, she began accompanying me to work. She would sit in front of the computer for a bit and we would simply spend time together.

 

 

I once overheard her talking with my boss which I thought was interesting.  Later, I cautiously inquired as to what they had discussed, and she responded that he had attempted to deceive her with a ruse. When it didn't work, he challenged her to spell his last name correctly which she did.

 

 

Growing up, she preferred grown-up discussions, which evolved into a caustic wit and a lack of tolerance for people who misjudged her. In this case, her new husband has earned her trust.

 

She transferred to high school during her junior year, and she used her dancing experience to try out for the cheerleading team that year.

 

Even if one door shuts in front of her, she will happily go through the next one. That’s who Sarah is.

We had a lot of fun together until the aliens stole her brain away from her. Her interests veered off in directions that mine had never ventured until she was 13 years old.

 

 

For a while, the tale about the aliens was the only way she could explain her conduct to her friends. We believed our children were normal, but Sarah let us see the aliens for what they really were. Later on, they were able to restore her mental faculties. It's been a long, long journey.

 

After high school, Sarah went off to college and eventually moved out of the house. My wife, on the other hand, saw it as a setback rather than a triumph.

 

It was a defining moment in her life. We had faith in her and she enrolled at Tanish University, where she excelled.

 

She completed her Master’s in Public Policy in two years after putting in the effort. She started her professional life as a policy advisor to our State Governor.

 

With each step up the ladder, she gained important experience that enabled her to achieve even greater success in her endeavors. If you're interested in learning more about what she's up to now, contact her. She will be more than happy to tell you about it. It's time to seize the moment once again!

 

Of course, she also seized Dan. He provides consolation during stormy days and illuminates the situation with his additional expertise.

 

And I'm looking forward to the day when your mom  and I will be able to adopt the titles of Grandma and Grandpa.

 

I'm overjoyed that the two of you have found one other, and we wish you both the best of luck in the future. Your presence in our family is much appreciated, Dan. And, Leia, you have once again made your mother and me very proud of you.

 

We are delighted to witness the two of you become one in your love for one another. They say that a good marriage starts when we marry the person we love, and it blooms when we continue to love the person we married throughout the seasons of life.

 

May you have genuine pleasure in your shared living space. Dan and Sarah, you are a good match for one another. You are both intelligent and capable of making sound choices, and you have a number of characteristics in common. It gives me great pleasure to be here with you today.

 

The voyage of marriage, on the other hand, is similar to that of a roller-caster. You will experience tremendous highs and equally severe lows, but the  trip will be well worth it!

 

So, always be each other's closest friends in good and bad times, honor each other, be nice, be lovely, and embrace and kiss each other a lot since it's beneficial for your health and happiness. As long as you stay at it, you will never forget this wonderful evening!

 

Thank you and God bless you all the days of your life. Cheers!

 

Ladies and Gentlemen, this has been your anchorman on the Wedding Speech TV, Eric, father of the bride and I am out of hereeeeeeeeeeee! Byeeeeeeeeeeee!

 Now, let’s break it all down so we can figure out what really went into writing this sweet father of the bride speech.

 

First, let’s re-look at excerpts of the introductory remarks which form the backbone of your speech.   

 

‘’Good evening and greetings to everyone who took out time for the wedding of my lovely daughter and son-in-law.

 

If you don't already know who I am, let me introduce myself: my name is Mark, and I am the proud father of the beautiful bride…’’

 

Could you please let me know what caught your eye when you read that?  If you go back to read it once more, you will realize that it is basically a short self-introduction which is fairly easy to write.

 

I am sure you can do that. Well, if you scroll further down the page, you will still see this other part of the opening address:

 

 

‘’Since the day Sarah was born, I've been looking forward to this moment. My first kid was born to me. My one and only daughter. Everything about today is the stuff of fathers' aspirations, desires, and fantasies…’’

 

What’s your take on that? Ok, let me walk you through that so you can understand it better.  

 

The story about Sarah’s birth sets the pace for the rest of the speech. Reflecting on how and when your daughter was born is one of the best ways of capturing the attention of the audience. But it goes beyond that storytelling approach.

 

There are actually other proven ways of starting with a bang and I am going to share a few with you.

 

First, you can dive deep and tell the wedding guests how you felt when you brought your daughter home from the hospital or held her in your arms for the very first time.

 

Here’s an example that conveys that exact feeling.

 

From the first moment you

were placed in my arms, and

you looked up at me with those little bright eyes of yours and you got me hooked.

I knew right then that I was going to protect you from the world since there was something really special about you.

 

Second, if you want to sound witty, you can jazz up your wedding speech for your daughter with some witty lines or quotes or even jokes. Below are a few you can use to come up with something creative.

 

  • "There are two things I know for sure: She was sent here from heaven and she's daddy's little girl."- Bob Carlisle
  • A father is a son's first hero and a daughter's first love."- Unknown
  • "Fathering is not something perfect men do, but something that perfects the man."- Frank Pittman
  • The happiest moments in every married man’s life is when his daughter tells him she’s engaged to be married’’- Jean Dan

 

 

Ok, let’s see if we can write something cute with the last quote.

 

My dad told me that there are two memorable moments in every man’s life. When he gets married to a very good woman and when he becomes a dad for the very first time.

 

While that’s true, I can say that when my daughter Mildred was born, I became a very proud dad for the first time and my joy knew no bounds 28 years later when she joyfully announced her engagement from overseas…….

 

That’s not all there is to opening your speech. It always seems that using just words is the natural thing to do. But, did you know that you can break out into a song to entertain your family and friends?

 

This father in the video below tried that and his message was very well-received that it became one of the best ever father of the bride speeches.

 

 

 

You better give it a try if you can and you will certainly end up making your darling daughter so proud!

 

 

Now, let’s turn our attention to this:

How to Write and Organize the Structure, Outline and Content of Your Father of the Bride Wedding Speech

 

First, let’s go back and re-read parts of the body so you can get an idea of what to do before you even write the body of your speech.

 

Please look at it carefully particularly the underlined words and phrases.

Here you go:

……I made up tales to keep her entertained, and I often read fascinating articles from the Kids Magazine to engage her in a lively conversation about the stories. On Saturdays, when she was approximately seven years old, she began accompanying me to work. She would sit in front of the computer for a bit and we would simply spend time together.

 

How to write a wedding speech for my daughter at reception

 

I once overheard her talking with my boss which I thought was interesting.  Later, I cautiously inquired as to what they had discussed, and she responded that he had attempted to deceive her with a ruse. When it didn't work, he challenged her to spell his last name correctly which she did.

 

Growing up, she preferred grown-up discussions, which evolved into a caustic wit and a lack of tolerance for people who misjudged her. In this case, her new husband has earned her trust…

She completed her Master’s in Public Policy in two years after putting in the effort. She started her professional life as a policy advisor to our State Governor. With each step up the ladder……….

 

 

Comments: Did you read that eagerly? Ok, what are some ideas you took home from that read?

If you go scroll up and give it a quick glance, you can infer that the whole thing is about stories about Sarah’s life.

 

In this case, it starts from when she was a little girl through her teenage years to when she graduated college and became a policy advisor.

 

If you always struggle to come up with ideas on the fly, then I recommend that you break the body of your presentation into the following parts.

 

  • Your daughter’s childhood---talk about it and back it up with a very memorable story. Don’t forget to share some funny and entertaining stories about your daughter’s childhood!

 

You can continue by sharing some of the memorable moments of her life, starting from her struggles and how she overcame them.

 

Then, share some turning points of her life and how she amazed you throughout this fantastic journey.

 

Share the growth and learning process of your daughter and how you felt all along.

 

  • Her teenage years/ Growing up years---fill in the blanks with stories about her years when she was entering puberty.
  • Her adult years--- Mention her accomplishments (scholarly and athleticism) if you will and memorable events you both took part in. It could be about a trip, sports event or a family get-together or school function like a graduation party.

 

You may talk about some stories that showed her being a little mischievous. But make sure it’s rendered in an amusing way so that you don’t embarrass her.

 

Then write about how you met the groom and your impressions of him. You may also work around any of these:

 

  • Do you share the same hobbies or similar interests?
  • Did he ask you permission to marry your daughter?
  • How did he propose? And were you around when he did that?

 

Action Tip: Please provide answers to the above questions and use your answers to come up with a quick first draft or outline. Not too difficult, right? Ok, just give it a try and let’s see what happens.

Now, let’s wrap this up with this:

How to End Your Speech on a Memorable Note

 

Most fathers wrongly assume that writing the concluding remarks is a walk in the park. While that is true, most speech givers don’t wrap up too as expected and that doesn’t make the wedding night one to remember.

 

It’s not uncommon to hear something along these lines:

‘’ Let’s raise our glasses and toast the happy couple. Cheers!’’

 

There’s nothing wrong with that approach though. But you can make it a lot more fun by being a little more creative with your closing remarks or best wishes.

 

Well, here are some ideas that can help you end on a strong note.

 

First, if you are a Christian couple or father, you can end with a prayer or blessing for the couple. Here’s an example taken from Psalm 128 and adapted for this occasion.

May you be blessed in this union

May the Lord bless you and cause you to eat the fruit of your labor

May you be like a fruitful vine within your house and your children grow like olive shoots around your table in Jesus name!

 

Second, if you have nothing else to say, you only have to end with a couple of best wishes. That’s easy to write, right?
