Are you ready to get started? If so, then go grab your pen and notepad or journal and jot down ideas you feel you can work into your own message as we get through this together.

 

Most people don’t know this. But there is a special kind of love between a father and his son that surpasses any other kind of love out there.

 

If you were very lucky to have spent quality time with your son, then you can be sure that your relationship has been very rewarding and enriching.

 

Please don’t worry if you were always on the road. You even don’t have to scratch your head about that and wonder how time has flown by so fast.

 

I think you still did your best as you worked so hard to provide for the family and I am sure if you could turn back the hands of time, you would have spent every minute with your precious son.

 

Whatever it is, you have to put the past behind you and focus on what you wish to say about your son and daughter-in-law at the wedding reception, rehearsal dinner, or even at the engagement party.

 

So, that leads me to this question on the minds of most fathers of grooms: What does the father of the groom say in his wedding speech?

 

That’s a great question to ask. That can only be possible if we first study one of the best father of the groom speech samples/examples so that we can use that as a template or model to come up with something sweet wedding speech for your son.

 

What should the father of the groom say and not say

 

So, without further ado, let’s open our books and study this example with an open mind.  You may take notes if you want to. Please study this slowly and carefully.

A Father of the Groom Wedding Speech Sample/ Example

 

Good evening and welcome everyone. Thank you so much for getting together today to celebrate Mary and Mike’s special day.

 

Of course I realize after the last year and a half, it wasn’t hard to convince you to come out all dressed up for any event...but still we are all excited that you are here.

 

What I’m trying to say is, if you really care about someone, the best gift you can give them is your time. You all have come from so far to grace this beautiful occasion and we are highly indebted to a few individuals who helped raise our son.

 

First, let me thank my wife and his mom for all she has done for Mike over the years.  He is truly a mommas boy but that’s a great thing when you look at how she taught him the value of hard work and dedication to excellence and belief that he can achieve his goals.

 

A big thank you goes to Brenda’s sister Diana for giving our family and Mike all those amazing times at Big Bear and the free lift tickets at Snow Summit. All those years of fun times with family in the mountains, have helped to shape Mike into the adventure seeking person he is today.

 

Before Mike was born, Brenda and I didn’t know what to expect but all I know is life as we knew it wasn’t going to exist any longer.

 

We were a bit nervous. I mean we had practiced with a fur baby, a dog named Scratchy, but we knew a baby was going to be much harder. 

 

What made it even more jittery was the fact that we didn’t know if our new arrival was a boy or girl and there were about 15 people at the hospital eagerly waiting to hear news of our baby’s arrival.

 

Finally, the tense waiting period was over and when word got out that we had a baby boy, everyone exploded into wild jubilation.

 

As new parents, we were up for anything but as a baby Mike was colicky and cried for about 6 hours straight each night. We got through that stage and even had another child who turned out to be an easy baby. She was our reward for all those sleepless nights with Mike.

 

When Mike was in middle school, he joined the surf club and I volunteered to drive him to the beach in the morning and could not believe how excited he was for surfing at 4:30.

 

He was always very good at school and sports like soccer and baseball and played a lot with kids in the neighborhood like Craig and Mark who are groomsmen today. He was also on varsity golf and varsity water polo in high school. We have always been very proud of him.

 

 

Nonetheless, I’ve always admired Mike’s bravery to explore new experiences and an opportunity to participate in Kmart commercial, directed by Spike Lee when Mike was in the 7th grade. What an experience this was and I saw him grow in confidence.

 

 

That growing sense of confidence plus his competitive spirit propelled him to work hard in school to get top grades and achieve his dream of becoming a doctor. 

 

A testament to his dedication to hard work and belief he can achieve his goals from Brenda.  I remember once when he was 8 years old, he was playing baseball and he swung the bat into his own leg. He started jumping around like someone had hit his funny bone. His mom just kept yelling “You can do it!” He went back up to the plate and hit the ball. That is the magic of my wife.

 

 

It’s such a heartfelt blessing to see Mike grow up from that a little kid to an absolutely wonderful man that we see before us today.

 

Through the ups and downs and in between, Mike has been a tremendous source of blessing and inspiration to the family and others.

 

Mike is a naturally kind person and always goes out of his way to help me, his mom and sister Amanda.

 

Mike, as parents, we have loved you and stood by you all these years as we strongly believed you that you deserve nothing but true love.

 

But we have always had it in mind someday you will have to spend the rest of your life with the person you cannot live without and she would be so lucky to have you in your life. And I hoped that you would find your own magical, beautiful wife like I did when I met your mom.

 

The more we got to know Mary, the more we felt she was that special one and the more we realized that Mike you are the lucky one to have Mary in your life.

 

She works hard too, and we are so proud of her. She’s studying now to become a pediatric dentist, which is amazing. Mary is caring and compassionate and supportive of Mike.

 

Family is important to her and I feel she will always put family first over herself. She is goal oriented and knows what it is like to sacrifice to achieve them.

  

Mike and Mary, we look forward to watching you both build your lives together in love and harmony. To always put each other first so your love wins in the end. 

 

When you walk on this new path, remember others will join you, like us and Neil and Janie, maybe some kids of your own, friends, and even strangers. But all of us are destined to walk with you only for a short time.

 

So always stick together, walking hand in hand. Don’t let anyone come between you, and you will find yourselves happy for the rest of your lives.

 

Best wishes on this wonderful adventure, as you build your new lives together. There’s an old wedding blessing that says “May you have the love that never ends, lots of money, and lots of friends. Health be yours, whatever you do, and may God send many blessings to you!”

 

Now, please everyone raise your glasses and let’s propose a toast to Mitch and Mika aka Mr. & Mrs. Mitch Anderson! Cheers to the beginning of your forever. We love you both so very much!! Cheers!

Now, Let’s Start...

 

What grade would you give this writer? For me, he did an absolutely brilliant job and I think I would give him an A!

 

Seriously, he captured the main points of what makes a father of the groom speech tick. Believe it or not, it’s not too hard to write something close if not better than that. 

 

Guess what most fathers do when they have to say a few words about their sons? They simply look up a few father of the groom speech examples and use that as a guide to making their endless thoughts flow onto the clean sheet paper.

 

If you start writing that way, you can run out of ideas unless you are a gifted writer or find your creative muse which is not always the case.

 

To start on a strong note and end on a memorable note, you need to have a plan, stick to that plan and work with it until you are done.  So, first and foremost, you need to develop the theme or goal or objective of your message. This indicates the direction in which you want your ideas to go.

 

To get the theme of your speech, you should first ask yourself these simple questions with a view towards writing the content of your father of the groom wedding toast:

  • Am I known to be a funny person? And can I really make my wedding toast very funny?
  • Does my tear start flowing when I talk about my children? Should I make a sentimental toast?
  • Doesn’t most father of the groom speeches sound the same at most weddings? And can I make mine a little different and memorable?
  • Am I a very witty person? And should I make my speech in the form of a poem?
  • I am known for my storytelling abilities. Should I simply tell a story about my son and the bride?
  • Do I have a very nice voice? Can I write a short song about the bride and groom and just sing it the way I want to?
  • Am I good enough to pick up bits and pieces of all the speech styles above and make it mine?

 

Now, let me ask you this: Which of those speech styles resonates best with you Picking one of them helps you stay focused on the goal. For example, if you are a naturally funny person, then you obviously are going to go for a funny father of the groom speech. 

 

Once you have picked what you want, it will help make you less anxious or nervous before delving into the writing process itself.

 

This Is How the Writing Process Works

 

If you have no idea about how to start, then it makes a lot of sense to watch a few videos about how father of the groom speeches are delivered as they would give you an idea of what to expect and how to even deliver your toast with flair and confidence. 

 

Thankfully, I found these great videos you can watch and learn from. So, please click on the play buttons on the videos below. Please get your notepad or journal in handy and jot down ideas that jump out at you as you watch them.  You might want to watch all of them since they are short clips.

If you are in a hurry, then i suggest you watch one or two and scroll down for the remainder of the text. 

 

Here you go:

Father of the Groom Speech Sample---Video#2

 

 

Parents of the Groom Speech Sample---Video#3

 

Which of the these videos did you find most interesting? I did enjoy the second presentation. Well, my friend, the wait is finally over.  Let’s now look at…

 

How to Write an Amazing Father of the Groom Wedding Speech

 

If you scroll up the page and read that sample once more, you will realize that it has three main parts.  Do you know what they are?

 

Ok, let me give you a hint. Your English teacher mentioned that when you are in high school. Ok, let’s get on with this if you have no clue. They are introduction, body or content of your speech, and the concluding remarks.

 

Let’s begin by looking at how to write your introductory remarks or address. We can cull excerpts of the above example to guide us every step of the way.

 

Here you go, man.

‘’ Good evening and welcome everyone. Thank you so much for getting together today to celebrate Mike and Mary’s special day.

 

Of course I realize after the last year and a half, it wasn’t hard to convince you to come out all dressed up for any event...but still we are all excited that you are here…

First, let me thank my wife and his mom for all she has done for Mike over the years. 

 

He is truly a momma’s boy but that’s a great thing when you look at how she taught him the value of hard work and dedication to excellence and belief that he can achieve his goals… Before Mike was born, Brenda and I didn’t know what to expect but all I know is life as we knew it wasn’t going to exist any longer. ‘’

 

Did you see those bolded words?  I have plans to use them soon as possible. So, please watch out for them in the course of this study.

 

Well, what can you say about that whole extract? If you take a look at it once again, you will realize that it basically consists of 

 

  • a short-self introduction
  • greetings or salutation
  • his relationship with the bride and groom
  • and expression of gratitude.

 

Wedding toast by father of the groom examples

 

Writing this aspect of your speech is fairly easy. But you should make sure it takes care of every person you wish to say thank you to.

 

Personalities like:

  • Your wife and the mother of the groom
  • His uncles and aunts
  • His teachers and other figures who have helped shape him into the person he is today
  • His grandparents…..if they are not alive, you can simply say: ‘’ They are not physically around. But I know they are here with us in spirits and feel so proud of who their grandson has become’’
  • You can also mention the parents of the bride and thank them for welcoming your son into their family with open arms
  • You may as well thank the event planners and everyone who helped plan the wedding.

 

Let me add this side note: If you are very close with the groom and you’ve been asked to be the best man at your son’s wedding, you can do things a little differently by thanking him, saying how honored you are that he picked you, and you may go on to tell a little story about when you first served as a best man if you have that experience and connect it to this one.

 

If there is a funny side of it, then you will be the speaker everyone will be rooting for even before you say something about your son at his wedding rehearsal dinner, reception, or at the engagement party speech.

 

Now, let’s go back and lift the underlined words we saw in that extract.

 

Here you go:

 ‘’ Before Mike was born, Brenda and I didn’t know what to expect but all I know is life as we knew it wasn’t going to exist any longer. ‘’

 

This sentence is more like a movie hook that grabs the viewers’ attention. Quite similar to what a reader might expect when they begin to soak in a spell-binding novel. 

 

Right after you have greeted the wedding audience, your opening remarks should do a very good job at making them come along with you from the start to the end of your father of the groom wedding speech.

 

So, how then do you get them to hang onto every word you say? It’s pretty easy you know.

 

Most fathers dive right by starting with a story about their child’s childhood. I think the reason most people follow this route is because that’s what most people are already accustomed to listening to. 

 

However, there are always better ways of opening your speech with a bang. Here are a couple of ways of doing that.

 

First, you can start with a prayer or a simple blessing if you are a Christian or your family is rooted in the faith before you actually deliver your speech.

 

Here’s an example culled from The Love To Know Website:

Dear Lord, we gather in this place in a spirit of celebration and gratitude. Thank you for the blessing of bringing (name) and (name) together in marriage today. We ask you to bless their marriage, their family, and all of their relationships. Help them stay strong in any adversity, and to treasure and protect the joy of marriage.  

 

Second, you can launch into the story by giving a detailed account of what happened before your son was born and what transpired afterwards.  Once again, the bolded sample above illustrates this point.

Third, if you are the emotional type of guy, you can possibly start with a story about how you felt when you got married to the groom’s mother before relating it with your own son’s wedding.

 

Here’s a classic example:

When we were growing up, my dad used to sing this song about how strange love is. I can’t remember who composed that song but dad loved it.

 

I particularly loved the lyrics. But it wasn’t until I got married to my wife in 1985 that I really understood why Johnnie’s grandfather used to hum this song. There are a few lines from that song that still stands out for me though.

Part of it says that if you are lucky, you and your son will find love in the same place. Guess what? My son and his fiancé went to Olen College which is where my wife and I met and started dating in 1989…

 

Fourth,  are you a crooner? Or can you play a musical instrument? If so, you can write a little song about your son’s life and practice singing it and all eyes will be on you. This music video can serve as a shining inspiration.

 

 

 

Fifth, are you known to be a witty person by family and friends? Then, it’s best to use some good quotes to enrich your wedding toast.

 

Below are a few quotes you may use to sound smart.

  • “A son can change his father from being selfish to selfless.’’- Unknown author
  • “Becoming a dad means you have to be a role model for your son and be someone he can look up to.” – Wayne Rooney
  • “I hope I can be as good of a father to my son as my dad was to me.” – Calvin Johnson
  • "Daddies don’t just love their children every now and then, it’s a love without end."-George Strait
  • "Of all the titles I’ve been privileged to have, 'Dad' has always been the best."- Ken Norton

 

Sixth, you can start with a joke. Here's an example

This beautiful couple have the world at their feet today, don’t
they? Someone very wise once said, “Marriage
is a partnership where each partner secretly
believes that they got the better deal.” I can’t
say which of you is correct in that, because both
of you are quite the catch!

 

I think I have showed you several examples to inspire you to come up with your own introductory remarks.

 

But can you actually use one of the above quotes to write something engaging?  Ok. I still want to help you out. So, let’s try and use George Strait’s quote to write a short example so you can get a fair idea about how it's done.

 

"Daddies don’t just love their children every now and then, it’s a love without end."

 

Here you go:

When I was in college, I read this quote by a wise man that says: Daddies don’t just love their children every now and then. It’s a love without end. I loved that quote so much that I cut it out from my favorite magazine and stuck it to the back of my car because it truly depicted the love my father had for his own children.

 

I remember going back home to visit dad and when he asked me why I had that note stuck to the back of my car. I just looked  him in the eye and told him that it was a reminder of how blessed and proud we were to have him in our lives.

 

That brought tears to his eyes and I remember him telling me to make sure that my children and my wife will be my top most priority when I start my own family someday.

 

His words never slipped out of my mind and I remember thinking about them deeply as I drove miles back to campus to graduate college.

 

 

Well, when I was about to get married, we were lucky to have him with us and when Mike our first child came to my life, he was also with us in the hospital. When you were finally born, he looked at me with a smile and simply reminded me about those words.  

 

That spurred me on and when baby Mike was only a day old, I held in my arms and told my new baby boy that I would sacrifice my all to give him a future he truly deserves.

 

Speech from father to son on his wedding day

 

That was it. Now, let’s look at…

 

How To Write The Content Or Outline For Your Toast

 

This is obviously the easiest part to write and deliver because it’s all inside your head.  I am sure you can easily recall all those beautiful stories about your son's life without blinking an eye.

 

Nevertheless, I have seen through observation and practice how most fathers goof when presented with an opportunity to say something about their sons on the wedding day.

 

This usually stems from the fact that most fathers don’t actually plan what they really want to say. You know, most speakers have lots of memorable anecdotes that they get confused with knowing which stories to use and even where to even start from.  

 

To stop this from happening, you first have to get an outline or bullet points of what you want to say. By this I mean, dividing your stories into these three parts:

  • Your son’s toddler years
  • Your son’s teenage years
  • His growing up years

 

After you have written them down on paper, sit back and jot down as many stories as you can remember about each of those stages of his life.

 

As you do that, pick out which stories you really want to use and don’t forget to write about the kind of man he’s grown into. Don’t forget to mention his beautiful qualities and use one or two of them to illustrate why you think he’s going to an amazing husband and dad.

 

Here’s an example to buttress the above idea:

 

Eric has grown from the little boy who used to dance around the house like a happy duck into compassionate young man and I am very confident that he will become an amazing husband and dad to Anita and her sons.

 

Djdjdj

 

Say Something about Your Daughter-In- Law Too

 

Whether you like the bride or not, your speech won’t be complete without saying a few remarks about who your daughter-in-law is, what her special qualities are, and what she brings into the marriage.

 

If you have known her for a considerable period of time, then you can write some really good points about her.

 

Well, if you really don’t like her personality or you think she’s not the right lady for your son, you can just dwell on her fine attributes or make a sweeping statement about her without stating the obvious.

 

Finally,

You’ve Got To End Your Father of The Groom Speech on a Memorable Note

 

How do you do that ? It’s actually simple. I am going to share with you just a few tips for closing your speech on a very resounding note.

 

First, you can end with a simple toast like this one:

 

May the time you have together for the rest of your life, be as passionate as your heartfelt the first time you said to each other i love you. May you always years for the touch of each other's hand and the look you see when only the both of you know what the other is thinking.

Here’s to Mike and Alice ! L’chaim!

 

 

Second, you can wrap up by gifting the couple a very nice gift. I once wrote a funny wedding speech where I asked the speaker to give the couple an insect repellant considering that the bride hated spiders with such a passion and this approach worked like a charm. But, you can do things differently by giving a very special gift that will outlast time. Can you think of a good fit?

 

For example, you can frame the advice part of your wedding speech and gift it to the couple. Will that work for you? Ok, just do what you are comfortable with.

 

Third, you can offer a few words of advice from a father to his son about marriage. Here’s an example.

 

‘’Love alone is not a reason good enough to get married. Marriage is an extremely close and intricate bond. Though necessary, love is not sufficient for a successful marriage.

 

Understanding, compatibility, trust, respect, commitment, support are some of the other attributes necessary for a long and happy marriage.’’

Well, you really have to honor your son with a great speech and this very short but moving story holds the keys to doing just that.

So, please stay tuned for everything you need to know about saying something about your son on his wedding.

 

What If You Were The One?

 

Mary loved his son not because they were kith and kin. But there was a story behind their very strong attachment.

Their strong bond of friendship was formed even before James was born. Her family had this chronic history of infertility that spanned decades.

A few in the family were lucky to have their own children and her entire tribe had only 10 members. Some had experienced miscarriages, and others lost their tiny babies at birth.

After her marriage to Chris, she really struggled to conceive. Test after test after test showed there was nothing wrong with the couple. When they least expected, the couple had a baby boy who filled their lives with hope and meaning.

 

Speech to my son on the day of his wedding

 

26 years later, their baby boy had grown into a very compassionate man and was about to get married. His mom felt he had to give him a gift that would outlast time itself and prove to everyone how much he loved his beloved son.

 

After carefully weighing several options, she decided to surprise his son with a mother of the groom wedding speech.

 

On his son’s big day, he gave a truly heartfelt speech that captured her story, the beauty of their relationship, and what his son means to her.

 

After reading the tips on this page, she delivered a speech that made his son feel so completely proud.

Mother of the Groom Wedding Speech Sample/Example

 

Hello everyone. I’m  Mary, James’s mom and I am so happy that we are finally here to celebrate with James and Stephanie and their true love story. We waited a year, but they finally got the wedding they deserve!

 

James has always been such a good heart. Even when I was pregnant with him, it was a dream pregnancy, so easy. Of course, the birth part was a bit less of a dream. 26 hours of labor.

 

Christopher and I wore a path in that maternity ward, walking and walking all night long.  Everytime we’d pass the nursery we would stop and look at the babies. I couldn’t wait to finally meet you, but apparently you were just fine. And your father with his camera!

 

He took pictures of the whole thing to document my level of pain. But he stayed with me the entire time, and when the three of us could finally go home, he rented a limo to take us. Your first ride in a car was in a limo!

 

 

James was always very smart and basically a great kid.  He did well in school, was loved by his teachers, had many friends, and he loved playing sports.

 

When he turned 6, we introduced him to his new baby brother Tanner. We used to joke that Tanner had 3 parents. James was the best big brother in the world. Always looking out for him, a great role model, very helpful, very supportive, they have a close relationship to this day, even though they are as different as night and day. That is always something that makes me so proud.

 

When James was very small we lived near South Coast Plaza and our favorite thing to do was to walk there to go on the carousel.  James did not like riding on the horse, so we would always end up sitting on the bench.  Going round and round sitting on a bench with a toddler.

 

One day when his Poppy and Grandma Ethel  were visiting, we went to the San Diego Zoo.  When James saw the elephant ride, he got excited and wanted to ride the elephant.  There was a very long line and I thought , “oh great, we’re going to wait on this long line, I’m wearing a skirt and will have to straddle this elephant and I know he won’t go on.”

 

When we got to our turn sure enough, he jumped right up there and loved riding the elephant.  He was afraid of the carousel horse; he had no problem riding the grand elephant. I think that says something about  James. He may be cautious when it comes to cheap thrills, but when it comes to something real? He embraces that part of life with everything he has.

 

Even as a teenager, James was so calm. He played football and when they had to go for away games, he would just sit on the bus doing his homework. Some nights they wouldn’t get home until midnight, but he was completely not stressed. I had to do all the stressing for both of us.

 

James was 1 of 10 valedictorians at his high school graduation.  Then he was off to UC Berkeley where he graduated in 4 years.  He started his own financial /wealth management company this past year during COVID  and is doing well.  He has wanted to do this for a very long time and felt the time was right now. I always thought he would make a great teacher, like mother like son, right? 

 

Well, James says he is a  sort of teacher.  He says “ I teach people how to manage their money to live their best life” He is extremely passionate about what he does and his clients are full of praise for him.

 

That’s why I could not imagine a more perfect partner for him than Stephanie. She’s also so hard-working and intelligent. She recently completed her PhD in public health. She also kept up with her studies and maintained a long-distance relationship with my son, making sure they got to see each other almost every weekend. That is determination. Christopher and I call them 2 peas in a pod, and it’s really true.

 

We met Stephanie at a wedding. James was the officiant, so Stephanie had to hang out with us. I really believe she became part of our family right then and there. But I’m still so glad that she’s actually family now.

 

You know, I started running in my 50’s and James and I completed our first half marathon together.   I have continued running and when I completed the Beach Cities Challenge, James said, that if my mom can do this, so can I and he completed it too.  He finished his series after me, so I ran an extra race, so I could run with him when he completed his Beach Cities Challenge. He was a big support to me and always very encouraging. 

 

When I ran the LA Marathon he and the rest of my family was there to cheer me on. The reason I’m telling you this is it is a good example of something my husband always makes a point of saying. He says that our “core family” which did  mean the four of us, and now means the five of us, always stick together.

 

I know that someday our core family will be even bigger when James and Stephanie have beautiful babies. We are always going to be here for the two of you as you go on this great marathon we call life. Don’t ever forget that.

 

My hope for you two is that you always have one another to talk to, to be best friends, and to depend on one another in good times and bad.

 

And I hope that your home is always filled with love and laughter. James, this is not a carnival ride, this is the elephant! Have a blast both of you.  L’Chaim! To James and Stephanie!

They say a promise is a promise and I really want to do everything possible to honor the promise I made earlier on this page.

 

So, without further ado, let me walk you through how you can make the most of the above mother of the groom sample to write a sincere speech that comes straight from your heart.

 

But before we start, let’s look at a few things you need to know before you think of putting your ideas together. 

                                            

The first step is to decide what you have to do.

Like everything else in life, the speech writing process involves planning.  Planning what to say, how to say it, and where to get the ideas to say what you wish to say.

 

Of course, it is possible to wing it if you have this sudden bout of inspiration that compels you to write so well like one of the finest writers of our time.

The key to pulling it off is to start on a right note. So, you should first get a purpose and theme for your toast.

 

And by this, I mean deciding how you want your mother of the groom wedding speech to achieve a certain effect. To do that, you should ask yourself these simple questions:

  • Do I want to give a short and sweet speech?
  • Should my speech be sentimental, sappy, or heartfelt?
  • Have I been asked to simply make the welcome speech?
  • Do I want to render it in the form of a poem?
  • Can I make it different by making my speech like a song like this one?
  • Can I keep it as simple as I can?
  • Can I make it a narration of my boy’s life by picking a few memorable stories about his life?
  • Am I funny enough to give a funny mother of the groom wedding speech?
  • Can’t I do a father-mother of the groom speech or a joint speech with my husband?
  • Or can I use bit and pieces of all the above styles to say something about the groom and the bride?

 

Moter of the groom wedding toast outline

 

Please take this from me: If you are going to speak at more than one venue, then you may decide to say make a simple toast at one setting(rehearsal dinner) and give your mother of the groom toast itself at another venue, say the wedding reception.

 

Second, you need to get a clear idea of how such speeches are made. I know you have been to several weddings in the course of your life. But you obviously weren’t there for the speeches. But for the food and drink and everything that comes with it.

 

So, you can warm up your brain and mentally prepare for task by watching a few videos about how mother of the groom wedding speeches are delivered.

 

The theme or purpose you selected above will ultimately influence the kind of videos you watch.

 

For instance, if you think you are a naturally funny person, then you can search for ‘’funny mother of the groom speeches’’ with the intention of getting great ideas for writing your own hilarious wedding toast.

 

Similarly, if you are thinking of making a sentimental mother of the groom wedding speech, then you can input that phrase into the search box of your favorite video sharing platform.

 

By the way, here are two of the best videos I found online that can stimulate your brain into coming up with the best ideas. 

Now, please press the play buttons in the following videos below. Then, watch them, and write down tips and ideas that speak to you.

A step-by-step approach for writing a mother of the groom wedding speech

 

Now, let’s dive right in by looking at a step-by-step approach to writing a memorable toast for your son and daughter-in-law.

 

First, let’s start by looking at how to write the introduction. We can do that effortlessly by reviewing the opening address of the above template.

 

Here it is again:

‘’ Hello everyone. I’m Mary, James’s mom and I am so happy that we are finally here to celebrate with James and Stephanie and their true love story. We waited a year, but they finally got the wedding they deserve! Derek has always been such a good heart.  ‘’

 

M6 (1)

 

Please keep the underlined sentence in mind as we will come back to it later. I know it’s been ages since you left high school.

 

But do you remember what your high school English teacher said about writing an engaging introduction? Can’t give it a try?

 

If you said that a great intro compromises of a short self-introduction, then I think your memory is like a magnet! Congratulations!

 

Please don’t worry if you had no clue.  If you really don’t want to waste time on this aspect of the introduction, then you can simply emulate the example you saw.

 

But it goes beyond that because your introductory remarks should also prominently feature one or more of these components:

 

  • Give a special shout out to people who played a tremendous role in your own life, your family, as well as your son
  • Thank the parents of the bride for welcoming your son into the family

 

Action Tip: Can you write down a short intro and mention names of people you want to say thank you to for something they have done?

 

Well, let’s take a stroll down memory lane and write down names of people you want to express appreciation to for their love and support over the years.

 

 

Now, let’s come back to this: James has always been such a good heart.

 

 

I know you might be wondering what the heck that means? Ok, it is called the hook and I will explain what that means as we go on.

 

You see, that is part of the introductory example we are looking at. You might not know this. But all opening addresses are made of these elements:

  1. Greetings and a short self-introduction(which we looked at the onset of this page)
  2. The hook (it is that part of the speech that draws in the listener into the story)

 

The hook should be funny, engaging, and inspiring so that your family and friends imagine your speech to be a very special one and not like the boring stuff they often hear at most wedding receptions, rehearsal dinner or even at engagement parties.

 

How to Capture the Attention of The Wedding Guests

 

How then do you can capture the attention of the wedding guests from the get go? It’s simple and the following examples can help you capture the spirit of a great intro.

 

First, you can start with a joke or tease your son with a story that won’t embarrass him. 

 

Here’s an example.

 

About half of you know the groom (my son) as Jack. Others call him Bread….But I like to call him Jack Bread because that weird combination sounds like music to my big ears!

So, for just a few minutes, I would like to tell you a few stories about your favorite guy: Jack Bread.

For those of you who don’t me, I am Margaret and my friends call me Miss. Bread….Sounds strange right? That a mom and his son share the same nickname. Just hold on and I will tell you the complete story.

Well, I actually got that cool nickname when I was in high school….

 

Did you notice how I slipped in that small story to entertain the audience? If you are not a naturally funny person or love to joke as a family, then you should just go with something you are very comfortable with.

 

Second, if you are a musically inclined person, you can simply write a simple song about your son’s life and toss in a few pictures without actually making a traditional speech. This music video can serve as a very useful guide.

 

 

 

 

Third, if you are a Christian or you have a strong religious upbringing, then it makes a lot of sense to start your speech on a note of gratitude to God as well as to your family and friends or a simple prayer.

 

Fourth, if you are a very emotional person and think your mother of the groom speech should have streaks of that to be felt throughout your message, then you can start with some touching quotes.

 

Here are some great ones you can make good use of.

  • "You mean more to methan anyone in this world." —Peter Pan, Peter Pan

 

 

  • "You are my greatest adventure." —Mr. Incredible, The Incredibles

 

  • "If love is as sweet as a flower, then my mother is that sweet flower of love."---Steve Wonder
  • "Mothers hold their children's hands for a short while, but their hearts forever."- Unknown

 

Finally, if you have ever written a letter to your son that captured your love for him in a very special way, you can start with that. For example, if it was a letter to him advising him about his future spouse, then you can start from.

 

This is how this can be done. Please read this example very carefully.

 

When my little husband (that’s what our neighbors used to  call us when he was toddler because we were extremely close). Well, when my little husband (now Rose’s sweetheart) turned 21 years old, I wrote him a letter that gave him great advice on what to look out for when choosing a spouse someday.

 

In that letter, I said Mike if you marry who loves you more than anything else and you will never regret it. I had never seen him with a lady. So, when he first brought Rose home 6 years later, my mind went back to the contents of that letter and I realized that his choice of spouse was a reflection of that maternal advice.

If you remember writing a lovely letter to your son, just dig around for it and see if you can rework parts of it for his wedding speech. I did it once for a client called Lori and her speech was a hit with everyone from family to friends of the bride and groom.

 

How to Give Them Something to Smile About

 

The body comes next after the introduction. So, let’s see….

How to put together the Content of your mother of the groom wedding speech

The body of your presentation is all about saying something about your son and daughter-in-law.

 

Here, you first begin by talking about your son. To make things much easier for you, you can do a little brainstorming and write down at least four (4) character traits of your son starting from when he was a toddler until now.

For example, my son is a kind, diligent, patient, daring, and caring young man.

 

Next , get stories or anecdotes for each attribute and use those that appeal to you write a rough first draft. Remember, you can always go back to review it until you are very happy with your speech.

 

That’s not all though. You can write a few things about your daughter-in-law. What you say should be thoughtful, honest and sincere and devoid of any resentful tone even if you think or feel she’s not the right woman for your precious son.

 

Now, let’s see

How You Can End Your Mother of the Groom Wedding Speech with a Bang

 

The golden rule of all memorable speeches is this: start with a bang, and end with a bang. It’s not uncommon for most wedding toasts to end like this:

‘’ Without further ado, please raise your glasses and toast to the happy couple’’

 

Is there anything wrong with that, really? Absolutely not. But that closing remark is not really inspiring since a first grade student can even master that.

 

Believe it or not, this is one of the most important tributes you will give in your lifetime so your conclusion should pack a punch.

 

Well, you can easily wrap up with any of these tips if you really want your speech to stand out.

 

First, you can end with an advice. Here are a few practical marriage advice that can always help the couple stay true to their promises. You may share what has actually helped you and your husband weather the storms.

 

  • Choose to love each other even in those moments when you struggle to like each other. Love is a commitment, not just a feeling.
  • Make time together a priority. Budget for a consistent date night. Time is the “currency of relationships” so consistently invest time into your marriage. There are no shortcuts. Building a strong marriage takes time and effort.
  • Your friends will impact your marriage, so choose your friends wisely. Surround yourself with friends who will strengthen your marriage and remove yourself from people who may tempt you to compromise your character.
  • Give your best to each other, not your leftovers after you’ve given your best to everyone else.
  • ‘’Your words matter to your spouse. But the tone in which you speak those words matter just as much. ‘’----Dave Willis

What to say and write to your son on wedding day by his mom

 

Second, you may end with a blessing or bible quotes or even a prayer if you are a Christian or a person of faith. My friend Christine used this bible verse when her sons were getting married and I am sure she would still use them when her grandchildren are also getting married someday.

Psalm 128

A song of ascents.

Blessed are all who fear the Lord,
    who walk in obedience to him.
You will eat the fruit of your labor;
    blessings and prosperity will be yours.
Your wife will be like a fruitful vine
    within your house;
your children will be like olive shoots
    around your table.
Yes, this will be the blessing
    for the man who fears the Lord.

May the Lord bless you from Zion;
    may you see the prosperity of Jerusalem
    all the days of your life.
May you live to see your children’s children—
    peace be on Israel.

This is also another powerful verse you can use in a prayer for the couple.

Numbers 6:24-26

New International Version

24 “‘“The Lord bless you
    and keep you;
25 the Lord make his face shine on you
    and be gracious to you;
26 the Lord turn his face toward you
    and give you peace.”

 

Third, you can end with a few quotes from the movies. I am really fond of these ones.

“The best love is the kind that awakens the soul and makes us reach for more that plants a fire in our hearts and brings peace to our minds.” – The Notebook

“When you realize you want to spend the rest of your life with somebody, you want the rest of your life to start as soon as possible.” – When Harry met Sally

 

Fourth, you can make your conclusion super memorable by asking a few members of your family to share with the couple what has worked for them in their marriage on video and share it with couple. It may project it on a screen.

 

Furthermore, you can put your own piece of advice on a picture frame and gift them to the couple and they will thank you for that very kind gesture.

If you nodded yes to that, congratulations! What a wonderful blessing to have this new job.  I know you have worked hard to reach this point in your career. It’s a well-deserved promotion!

 

Whether you have been promoted from within your current firm or tapped from somewhere else, you are going to work with diverse group of workers with different expectations, and your new CEO or welcome speech presents a perfect opportunity to not only make a favorable first impression but to also re-assure the staff, board of directors, and employees that you will always be there for them through thick and thin. 

 

Ceo introduction speech

 

This would be one of the most important speeches you will make in your professional since your new employees would always remember what you said in hard times.  So, you better brace yourself for it.

 

I know the question on your mind is: How you can deliver an inspiring CEO acceptance speech that will unify, inspire and reassure your employees and staff?

 

The following examples are replete with great ideas that can help you do justice to your presentation.

 

First and foremost, let’s study them carefully. Afterward, we will break them down bit by bit so we can figure out what went into writing an inpsiring welcome speech. Some bosses prefer writing while others opt for speeches. So, let’s look at both of them in detail.

 

Now, let’s look at the letter Tim Cook wrote to his employees when he was a new CEO at Apple.  

 

Team:

I am looking forward to the amazing opportunity of serving as CEO of the most innovative company in the world.

Joining Apple was the best decision I’ve ever made and it’s been the privilege of a lifetime to work for Apple and Steve for over 13 years. I share Steve’s optimism for Apple’s bright future.

 

 

Steve has been an incredible leader and mentor to me, as well as to the entire executive team and our amazing employees. We are really looking forward to Steve’s ongoing guidance and inspiration as our Chairman.

 

 

I want you to be confident that Apple is not going to change. I cherish and celebrate Apple’s unique principles and values. Steve built a company and culture that is unlike any other in the world and we are going to stay true to that—it is in our DNA.

 

 

We are going to continue to make the best products in the world that delight our customers and make our employees incredibly proud of what they do.

I love Apple and I am looking forward to diving into my new role. All of the incredible support from the Board, the executive team and many of you has been inspiring. I am confident our best years lie ahead of us and that together we will continue to make Apple the magical place that it is.

Tim

 

This second example is what ex- Microsoft CEO, Satya Nadella wrote to his employees when he first became CEO.

 

Today is a very humbling day for me. It reminds me of my very first day at Microsoft, 22 years ago. Like you, I had a choice about where to come to work. I came here because I believed Microsoft was the best company in the world.

 

I saw then how clearly we empower people to do magical things with our creations and ultimately make the world a better place. I knew there was no better company to join if I wanted to make a difference.

 

This is the very same inspiration that continues to drive me today.

It is an incredible honor for me to lead and serve this great company of ours. Steve and Bill have taken it from an idea to one of the greatest and most universally admired companies in the world.

 

 

I’ve been fortunate to work closely with both Bill and Steve in my different roles at Microsoft, and as I step in as CEO, I’ve asked Bill to devote additional time to the company, focused on technology and products. I’m also looking forward to working with John Thompson as our new Chairman of the Board.

 

 

While we have seen great success, we are hungry to do more. Our industry does not respect tradition — it only respects innovation. This is a critical time for the industry and for Microsoft. Make no mistake, we are headed for greater places — as technology evolves and we evolve with and ahead of it. Our job is to ensure that Microsoft thrives in a mobile and cloud-first world.

 

 As we start a new phase of our journey together, I wanted to share some background on myself and what inspires and motivates me.

 

Who am I?

I am 46. I’ve been married for 22 years and we have 3 kids. And like anyone else, a lot of what I do and how I think has been shaped by my family and my overall life experiences.

 

 

 Many who know me say I am also defined by my curiosity and thirst for learning. I buy more books than I can finish. I sign up for more online courses than I can complete.

 

I fundamentally believe that if you are not learning new things, you stop doing great and useful things. So family, curiosity and hunger for knowledge all define me.

New ceo welcome speech

 

 Why am I here?

 

I am here for the same reason I think most people join Microsoft — to change the world through technology that empowers people to do amazing things. I know it can sound hyperbolic — and yet it’s true. We have done it, we’re doing it today, and we are the team that will do it again.

 

 

I believe over the next decade computing will become even more ubiquitous and intelligence will become ambient. The coevolution of software and new hardware form factors will intermediate and digitize — many of the things we do and experience in business, life and our world.

 

 

This will be made possible by an ever-growing network of connected devices, incredible computing capacity from the cloud, insights from big data, and intelligence from machine learning.

 

This is a software-powered world.

It will better connect us to our friends and families and help us see, express, and share our world in ways never before possible. It will enable businesses to engage customers in more meaningful ways. I am here because we have unparalleled capability to make an impact.

 

 

Why are we here?

In our early history, our mission was about the PC on every desk and home, a goal we have mostly achieved in the developed world. Today we’re focused on a broader range of devices. While the deal is not yet complete, we will welcome to our family Nokia devices and services and the new mobile capabilities they bring us.

 

As we look forward, we must zero in on what Microsoft can uniquely contribute to the world. The opportunity ahead will require us to reimagine a lot of what we have done in the past for a mobile and cloud-first world, and do new things.

 

 

We are the only ones who can harness the power of software and deliver it through devices and services that truly empower every individual and every organization. We are the only company with history and continued focus in building platforms and ecosystems that create broad opportunity.

 

 

Qi Lu captured it well in a recent meeting when he said that Microsoft uniquely empowers people to “do more.” This doesn’t mean that we need to do more things, but that the work we do empowers the world to do more of what they care about — get stuff done, have fun, communicate and accomplish great things. This is the core of who we are, and driving this core value in all that we do — be it the cloud or device experiences — is why we are here.

What do we do next?

 

 

To paraphrase a quote from Oscar Wilde — we need to believe in the impossible and remove the improbable.

 

 

This starts with clarity of purpose and sense of mission that will lead us to imagine the impossible and deliver it. We need to prioritize innovation that is centered on our core value of empowering users and organizations to “do more.”

 

We have picked a set of high-value activities as part of our One Microsoft strategy. And with every service and device launch going forward we need to bring more innovation to bear around these scenarios.

 

 

Next, every one of us needs to do our best work, lead and help drive cultural change. We sometimes underestimate what we each can do to make things happen and overestimate what others need to do to move us forward. We must change this.

 

 

Finally, I truly believe that each of us must find meaning in our work. The best work happens when you know that it’s not just work, but something that will improve other people’s lives. This is the opportunity that drives each of us at this company.

 

 

Many companies aspire to change the world. But very few have all the elements required: talent, resources, and perseverance. Microsoft has proven that it has all three in abundance.

 

 

And as the new CEO, I can’t ask for a better foundation.

Let’s build on this foundation together.

Satya

CEO 2 

I think you will agree with me that both examples are excellent speeches you can learn and adapt to write your own message.

 

I am sure you might be wondering how you can make the most out of those examples since you are a busy executive.  It’s very simple, really.

 

First, you need to watch a couple of videos to get a fair idea of what to say and how to say it better. Thankfully, youtube.com has plenty of such videos online to equip you and also help you master your presentation.

 

By the way, here are two videos you can watch and learn from.

 

Here you go:

 

New CEO welcome speech sample---(video #1)

 

 

New welcome acceptance speech example --- (video#2)

 

 

Now, let’s begin breaking down the second written example down bit by bit with an eye towards writing our own script.

First, let’s start with the introductory remarks or opening address. Let’s re-cap excerpts of it so we can be guided every step of the way.

New CEO Speech a

The introduction is always the hardest part to write because your new employees and managers will most likely be judging you by what you say right from the start. 

 

So, your opening remarks should be engaging, positive, and even funny without alluding to any seeming tension in the firm (even if there is one).

To easily write one that will set the right tone for your tenure and potentially signal your leadership qualities, you can start with one or more of these proven tips and ideas.

 

First, you can simply talk about your excitement about assuming the new managerial position.

 

Second, if you have risen through the ranks to be the boss of your organization, you can share just a little story about what your journey has been like over the years and your ‘’new employees’’ will enjoy every bit of it.

 

Here’s an example from Satya’s introduction speech.

 

Today is a very humbling day for me. It reminds me of my very first day at Microsoft, 22 years ago. Like you, I had a choice about where to come to work. I came here because I believed Microsoft was the best company in the world.

 

I saw then how clearly we empower people to do magical things with our creations and ultimately make the world a better place…

 

Third, you keep the atmosphere lighthearted by sharing a funny story about what happened when you assumed that position.

 

Let’s look at this example.

My youngest son, Mark has been a fan of comics ever since I can remember. Guess what happened a month ago.

 

When Mark came back from school, he dashed into my room and said, Dad, mom tells me that you are moving to Danny Toys in the fall. Please (comment: let it go hand in hand with facial gestures when you talk about the underlined words) don’t take up that job!

 

I scowled at him and retorted…’’Let’s make a deal, Mark. If I don’t take it up, then I will change your school and you will miss your friends!

 

He always outdid me.  But he almost pulled this hair out on that one.

 

Then he countered through the tears and said dad, I get it. But I understand those guys work tirelessly like wall clocks! Just make sure you don’t wear yourself out!

 

The next day, he tiptoes to my room smiling and says’’ Dad, I have been thinking about your new appointment and I think you should give it a shot. But on one condition that you sack Superman from that cartoon series so I can take over from him.

 

 

I think I can do better than him as the hero. Do you remember the time I flew from our roof to save a stray cat?  Will you do that?

 

May be! Let’s see what happens! I will probably give it my best shot. At that momet, he jumped off my bed and fell down with a thud!

 

Incoming or new ceo welcome speech samples or examples

 

I looked at him once more again and said: Mark, do you still want to take over from Superman?

 

This was his response: ''Oh no, I almost sprained my ankle and I think I need more time to train harder before I think of ousting him!''

 

 

Ladies and gentlemen, just like Mark, I thought for so long before taking up this post because I didn’t want to be the next Superman. But someone who works as hard as Mark put it(like a wall clock) and get on  with everyone on the team to make…

 

I am sure you reading enjoyed that brief but hilarious example? I did!

 

Fourth, you can adapt this proven tip used by management consultant and coach Mike Hawkins. He illustrates it with this example.

 

When I was approached by Stem about taking this position, I had four primary interests: this market, working for a company with a compelling vision, capitalizing on great capabilities, and working with great people.  

 

My view of your market is that it has tremendous potential.

 

My view of your vision is that you have it right. My initial view of your capabilities is mixed. You do some things very well and some not so well.

 

But isn’t anything that can’t be improved. Our future is within our control and I look forward to improving our capabilities together.

 

My view of you is that you will be the best people I’ve ever worked with.So that’s why I accepted this position and am excited about being your leader.

 

 

I’m going to take ninety days to assess our strategy and operations before making any substantive changes.

 

Unless I find something urgent that needs immediate change, I’m going take these first ninety days to get to know you, what you do, and what we all need to do to take this organization to the next level.

 

Now, let’s consider…

 

How you can easily write the body of your CEO welcome speech

 

That sounds easier to write, right? It seems so simple but most bosses really struggle to put together their random thoughts into a very coherent message. 

 

 

Do you know why this happens? It’s because most speakers have years of corporate memories tucked inside their brains. But, they really don’t know how to begin or even where to start from.

 

 

 

To get your ideas across more clearly and persuasively without sounding stiff like a terrible boss, you need to present your vision in a compelling manner. Well, we can go back to see excerpts of the above example so we can figure out what to do.

 

Please note that I will be inserting my comments, observations and even asking questions below each extract. You just have to provide answers to the questions asked and use them to craft your own rough speech or message. 

 

 

Ok, please let’s start.

 

Excerpt:

 

‘’I saw then how clearly we empower people to do magical things with our creations and ultimately make the world a better place…’’

 

Comments: Here, the incoming CEO tells a story of when he was first hired for the job. He reminisces about the good old days from his first day at work up until he was appointed to head the firm.

 

This approach is particularly useful if you have been picked from within and have decades of hands-on experience on the job.

 

Question: If you have been working at the firm so long, what have the years been like? Just write down your experiences (particularly the memorable ones as well as the not so good years especially if you learned valuable lesssons you wish to share with your team)

 

How to write new ceo introduction speech

 

Let’s continue….

 

We’re still looking at the excerpts…

 

''I’ve been fortunate to work closely with both Bill and Steve in my different roles at Microsoft, and as I step in as CEO...''

 

Comments: If you are taking over from someone who was really admired and respected by your new employees, you can say something about that person and mention why you admire him or her. But, please make sure you do that from a sincere heart.

 

A few questions to ponder over to help you formulate the part mentioned right above in red:

 

  1. Whose big shoes are you stepping into? Please put down his or her name.
  2. What do you really admire about him or her?
  3. Is there something he’s or she’s really known for that you wish to briefly talk about?

 

Please note: If the outgoing CEO had a frosty relationship with the board of directors and even your new employees, then you should keep your words to yourself as there’s no need to scratch an old wound. 

 

By the way, please put down answers to the above questions (a-c) and see if you can write a little story out of that.

 

 

Let’s continue by looking at the snippets….

 

''I am 46. I’ve been married for 22 years and we have 3 kids…Many who know me say I am also defined by my curiosity and thirst for learning. I buy more books than I can finish…''

 

 

Comments: If you are known to be a very warm or family oriented person, then it’s always a great idea to talk about who you are. You could talk about your upbringing, who or what shaped your character, and what your personal work culture or ethic is.

 

Here, you can throw in some personal attributes that tie in with your assigned responsibilities as CEO or president of your new workplace.

CEO 3

 

Let's go on with this

 

 ''Why am I here? I am here for the same reason I think most people join Microsoft..''

 

Questions:

  1. Who are you?
  2. What do you stand for?
  3. What are your personal ideals?
  4. Why did you take up the post as CEO or Boss of your firm?

 

Again, construct few sentences with your answers you wrote from Q1-Q4.

 

 

Let’s continue….

 

''I believe over the next decade computing will become even more ubiquitous and intelligence will become ambient. This will be made possible by an ever-growing network of connected devices, incredible computing capacity from the cloud…'' 

 

Comments: I read this and realized that this writer is a visionary because we can all see what became of Microsoft in the years after Satya's appointment.

 

 

As we look forward, we must zero in on what Microsoft can uniquely contribute to the world…

 

 

Questions ot help you compose parts of the speech as seen above:

 

  • What’s your vision for the organization? Your dreams should be in sync with that of your new place of work.

 

  • What do you expect from your employees and co-workers?

 

  • Do you have any piece of advice for them?

 

 

  • Do you have anything to share that will inspire them to work harder?

 

  • Finally, you can reassure them that you will give them a listening ear and lead with patience, clarity and purpose in times of turmoil.

 

 We are not done yet. Please let's keep at it

''This starts with clarity of purpose and sense of mission…

Next, every one of us needs to do our best work, lead and help drive cultural change. We sometimes underestimate what we each can do to make things happen and overestimate what others need to do to move us forward. We must change this…

 Finally, I truly believe that each of us must find meaning in our work…

 Many companies aspire to change the world. But very few have all the elements required: talent, resources, and perseverance. Microsoft has proven that it has all three in abundance.

 And as the new CEO, I can’t ask for a better foundation…''

 

Action Tip or assignment: Now, this is what I want you to do right now. Please put all your answers together and just write your speech or letter(taking the ideas shared into account) without worrying so much about how it flows. You can always go back and review it until it comes out much better.
