You see, the vast majority of fathers of the groom are a lot like John.  They want to make their sons proud with their words, but they seem to be stuck in a rut because they just can’t find the right words that will highlight the depths of their eternal bonds of friendship as he starts the next chapter of his life with that special someone he can’t live without.

Don’t Let This Sabotage Your Father Of The Groom Speech…Do This Instead

 

Before we look at how to pour your whole body, heart and soul into writing an amazing father of the groom speech, I feel it’s very necessary, though, at this point to address an issue that afflicts almost every father of the groom prior to speaking about their son’s wedding day. You have to know this, so, please don’t skip it over.

 

 

How did you feel when your son phoned you and asked you to deliver a few remarks at his wedding? Did your heart miss lots of beats? Did you feel a cold shiver down your spine? Or did you experience a sudden spike in your blood pressure?

 

 

If you experience any of those symptoms or more, then you have probably made these remarks before:

  • I hate being in the public eye…
  • I don’t have a natural aptitude for string words together like a master storyteller.  Ok, I know what you are thinking.

 

 

Guess what? You are not alone. We (including world famous speakers) have all been there. When most father’s find themselves in this sticky situation, they tend to overthink it. They lose sleep about what to say and what not to say without even preparing for the task ahead.

 

 

Some, others, simply wing it thinking that they know their sons very well to come up with great stories on the fly.  Not a bad idea if you are a great storyteller.

 

Tips and ideas for father of the groom speech

 

I have some fathers’ use this clever approach and I think it’s a great way to forge a strong bond with the wedding crowd if you are a naturally talented speaker. Such presentations are not only succinct and sweet but it comes from the heart.  And that’s something I wish all fathers do.But, as you know, not so many fathers have a way with words.

 

 

This is what some fathers too and I think it’s the root cause of anxiety, tension, and nervousness. Due to family and work demands, some fathers put it off only to realize a few days before the wedding they don’t have a father of the groom speech in hand.  Thus, settling for an ordinary speech.

 

 

Your son doesn’t deserve that, right? When it comes to writing a father of the groom speech, it’s more like a marathon and not a sprint. It often takes lots of preparation, practice and self-belief to build up your confidence and self-esteem.

So, let’s take this writing exercise like running a marathon and you will achieve your writing goals.

 

 

This is what I want you to do right away if you are still feeling anxious. Amit Ray said it best that if you want to conquer the anxiety of life, live in the moment, and live in the breath.

 

 

So, please take a deep breath in and out to relax your nerves.  If you take Amit’s prescription to heart, you will be taking slow but sure steps towards conquering your anxieties and also delivering a great father of the groom wedding speech with clarity and poise.

 

 

On the flip side, being nervous is actually a telltale sign of accumulated fears. Ok, I will explain. A friend of mine had an accident while learning to drive. He lost control of the wheels and almost killed himself and another person. He has since lost his zeal for car driving.

 

 

Now, most of us are like my friend.  We have had series of speaking setbacks that we have repeatedly said to ourselves and others within our circles that it’s not our strong suit.

 

Djdjdj

 

Sure, you might not have that the aptitude. I get it. But, you can dust yourself off and seize this once-in-a-life time moment to re-write your story and make your son proud with a touching father of the groom speech.

 

That takes us to the next chapter. I guess that’s your favorite part of this whole thing we are looking at. Ok, let’s look at it.

 

 

How To Quickly And Easily Write Your Father Of The Groom Speech

 

Your father of the groom speech should start and end with this: proper planning.

As the old age goes, proper planning prevents poor performance. By inference, proper planning leads to outstanding accomplishments.

 

 

From writing and reviewing hundreds of father of the groom speeches for my clients and others, I have seen most fathers make this classic mistake: they find some father of the groom speech examples and tweak it a bit to suit personal needs.

 

When I first started out as a father of the groom speech writer back in the day, I used to make that mistake too. Thank God, I am now an accomplished father of the groom speechwriter. But, it wasn’t always easy.

 

 

In the past, I didn’t know what I gotten myself into as I read several father of the groom speech templates and just modeled my speech after them. That gave me a bad rap and I run into several problems. As a result, I was labeled as a ‘’copy and paste guy. ‘’  Isn’t that sad?

 

 

Unfortunately, the vast majority of fathers seem to dabble in this unhealthy practice as well. Don’t get wrong. I am not saying that, that lazy approach is entirely wrong per se. There’s a time and place for that if you harness it properly for your good.

 

Father of the groom speech samples

 

If all you ever do is to start writing down your father of the groom speech after studying a few father of the groom speech samples, you will end up with a not so great wedding speech for your son and daughter-in-law.

 

 

Let’s get back to what we were previously discussing. Do you still remember what I told you about proper planning being the secret to your success in the last four paragraphs?

 

 

Here’s the most important part. You first have to have to lay the foundation for your father of the groom speech in your mind considering that the battles of life are won in your mind’s eye.

 

 

So, this is what I recommend you do (I do that all the time before I put any speech together) right away.

 

 

The first thing to do is to create the desired and ideal outcome of your speech in your mind.  Here are some questions to help you do just that.

  • What’s it that you want to say about your son?
  • How do you want your son to feel after listening to your words?
  • What do you want to say about the groom and bride?
  • How do you want your family and friends to feel after you are done? Teary-eyed? Happy? The best father of the groom speeches is often a harmonious blend of happy and sentimental emotions.
  • What’s my personality like? And what kind of father of groom speech (more on that later) does my personality type allow me to do?

 

 

One more hint:  This mental exercise can set you up for success if you write everything down as if you have already achieved your pre-performance goals. Now that you have a clear direction on where this is going, let’s talk about some specifics of how to get there.

 

 

We can only do that by looking at how to build momentum for your father of the groom speech. This can only be possible if we first figure out how and where to get proven ideas for your toast.

 

 

The best way to inspire and create momentum as a father of the groom as you move forward with your speech is to ensure you are headed in the right direction. 

 

 

I like to liken this to a chef who is preparing a sumptuous meal fit for a king. He can only deliver a finger-licking meal if he’s in the right frame of mind and has all the right ingredients in the right amount.

 

 

Similarly, you can only deliver a really good father of the groom speech if you have right tools to work with. But, most importantly, you need to put yourself in a focused and calm mood.

 

 

To do that, you have to go to youtube.com and insert the search bar ‘’father of the groom speech’’ and other variants of that keywords. As you do, several videos will pop up like this:

Father of the groom speech templates and examples

 

Of course, you can’t sift through all of them due to time constraints. Besides, not all of them are that good.

 

 

So, let’s go back to what I told you about creating an ideal outcome in your mind at the start of this piece. Do you still remember that? Ok, good. So, for example, if you are fun to be around, then you can probably do a funny father of the groom speech.

 

 

In this case, you can add that keyword into the search bar and watch a video like this to get you in the mood:

 



Again, if you are a very expressive person or have a knack for churning out great stories, you can watch a storytelling speech like this one to put you in the mood as well.

 



If you are someone who wears your heart on your sleeves, then you can look for a touching or sentimental father of the groom speech on that same platform. Here’s one I found for you from that domain to help put you in the mood.

 



Do you have an idea of what I mean by delivering a speech based on who you are? And did you notice how I kept repeating this phrase: ‘’put you in the mood’’

 

Let’s see exactly how it works. Putting yourself in the mood simply means putting one step forward if you have never made a speech your whole lifetime.

 

 

It also gives you a fair idea of how such speeches are made. What’s more, you can find ideas and tips you can work into your father of the groom wedding speech.

 

 

This is something you can do right now to get your momentum going: Scroll up the page to watch a father of the groom speech video clip.  Then, put down in your journal or open up your document and type or write the kind of speech you would like to deliver. Will you do something funny, heartfelt, or narrative? That’s not all there is to it anyway.

 

 

You can do something poetic or use my favorite style: sing-song father of the groom speech.  Let’s look at another example:

 

 

If you have a creative streak, you can do bits and pieces of each style to make your father of the groom speech unique and memorable. Wouldn’t you love it?

 

How To Get Content Ideas For Your Father Of The Groom Speech

Next, let’s look at how and where to get content ideas for your father of the groom speech as that will form the basis for the content material.

Now, let’s look at where to get ideas for your speech.

 

 

Can you guess where those ideas are? They are all lying dormant in your mind. Fond memories of when your son was born, to when he was a little, to when he was growing, to his engagement can help you come up with great ideas for your father of the groom speech.

 

 

Well, if you don’t have a razor-sharp memory and have forgotten some very precious moments, then you can do this simple exercise to bring them back instantly.

 

 

It is often said that you shouldn’t put off until tomorrow what you can do today. Drawing inspiration from this quote, let’s do this now since it can help you to build and maintain your confidence as a ‘’father of the groom speech writer’’ Please, don’t put it off until another time.

 

 

First, they say a picture is worth a thousand words and I think family pictures tell a story. So, grab your old family photos (vacation, graduation, birthday, and so on ) and recent ones to help you remember all those great moments you have had with your son growing up.

 

 

Second, if you have a scrap book you can flip through it to rekindle those treasured memories.

 

 

Third, you can dig up letters or notes or emails for some reflection. Still on that, you can look for greeting cards he sent over on birthdays, father’s day, thanksgiving, Easter and Christmas Holidays.

 

 

Here’s a hint:

Go through those photos to rekindle lost memories and put down stories those pictures bring to mind. They should be memories you would like to highlight in your father of the groom speech.

 

 

Letters and the other stuff aren’t meant for reminiscing on past events alone but for also helping you recall who he was and what he stood for.

What to say to your son at his wedding

 

For example, if your son Jimmy wrote you a touching letter expressing his love and admiration on father’s day, you can use portions of that letter to talk about his loving and caring personality.  I did this once for a mom and she loved every bit of it.

 

To illustrate, this is what I carved out of a long letter she sent over:

 

Daniel, I am so proud of you and how far you’ve come down the road of life. You have achieved a whole lot not only for yourself, but your family and in service of our country.

I remember when you were deployed to serve in Iraq the second time, we missed you so so badly and out of the blue, in January of 2010, you sent me a heartfelt poem.

 

In that poem, you spoke so lovingly of the love we have for each other, the great sacrifices I have made for you and our shared ordeals on the battlefield of life. It really touched my heart and soul. I nearly drowned in my own tears.

 

 

Here are a few questions to ask yourself as you review those pictures, letters, and notes.

  • What does this picture remind me about? Please write down your answers
  • Do I really want to use the stories that go with the pictures? Write down a yes or no to that.
  • Do you in anyway want to enhance your father of the groom speech with any of those photos? For example, you can use them as visual aids if you are doing a video presentation about your son.

 

Four

 

Why do you need all of that? By doing this, you can vary your speaking style so you don’t sound like one of those boring guys!

 

 

After you have done all that, you then launch into the deep by figuring out how to tie the thoughts and ideas you have already written down in response to the above questions into a very touching father of the groom speech.

 

 

Let me say that if you are not very gifted with words, it can be hard to know where and how to start. If you don’t know how to get around it, you will end up with a rather incoherent speech.

 

 

To make the writing process is simple, painless, quick, and very memorable on the wedding day; you have to first study a well-written father of the groom speech example/sample closely and carefully.

 

 

I will share with you such an example. Afterwards, I will analyze it and back aspects of it up with the right examples so you can make sense of it all.

 

As you go about studying the father of the groom speech example, you should reflect on the following questions: 

 

  • Are there aspects of the example you find interesting and fascinating?
  • Is there any way you can slot in the insights you got from reading it into your own writing?
  • Would you like to adapt the same style or you would like to come up with something else?
  • Do I like how it flows from the introduction to the conclusion(I will get to this in a heartbeat)

 

 

Without further ado, here it is:

 

Father Of The Groom Speech Example/ Template

Hello everyone. I’m Mike and I’m Eric’s father. On behalf of his mom Connie and I, we’d like to thank all of you for joining us in this very special celebration.

 

Erik came to us later in life than a lot of parents. So he wasn’t a surprise. He also came on his due date, which is very unusual from what I understand. So his actual birth was not unexpected either.

 

Still, as I was looking at this brand new miracle that had just entered into my life…I couldn’t help but think “I should have seen more movies. It’s going to be a long time before I get to see an entire movie, isn’t it?”

 

As a child, Eric was very kind, friendly and loved to entertain us with jokes. He had the mind of an engineer and was curious about everything. He used to look at his nookie as though he were trying to figure it out.

 

 

When he got his first bike with training wheels, he was so enamored with how training wheels worked that he tried to convince a neighbor to put training wheels on his road bike! Erik wanted him to let him know how they worked out.

 

Erik has always been a very good traveler. We took him to London and Paris to visit Connie’s sister when he was a little over a year old. He slept on the plane, didn’t cry, and I think even the other passengers were impressed! He even

climbed to the top of the Eiffel Tower when we got to France. Later, we got to go to Florida and see the launch of Atlantis. That was the final launch of the shuttle program, so that will always be a special memory.

 

He was a whizz at math. I remember a grade school teacher coming up to me and telling me that other children were coming to him for help with a math problem. That continued through college when he was a math tutor. Erik is always willing to help.

 

 

He was also a tremendous athlete in school. I remember this one sniper hockey shot that he made from midcourt.

Later, when I asked why he didn’t pass it on to a teammate he said that the teammate would have hit a pipe and missed the goal. I also have this (show baseball pic) greatest picture of all time. Erik sliding into home in baseball! It was fun watching him grow up and celebrating his accomplishments. It was also fun just to see him play.

 

He was very committed. He would always play for the entire season, even after others dropped out. Once he said that he was going to do something, well then you could take that promise to the bank.

 

He still is that way today. He’s a man of integrity, commitment, and honesty. That is why we are so happy that today he gets to make the ultimate commitment to someone who is also honest, smart, and loving.

 

Eileen, you are the best thing to ever happen to Erik. You are his best friend, his partner in life, and his one true love. We knew, well, we certainly expected, that you would be the one. Erik never brought women home unless he was serious.

 

You struck us as someone he felt more for than anyone right from the start. We are very proud of both of you and I’m so happy that our son has found someone that will bring him joy and happiness.

 

Tommy and Laura, you have raised a beautiful girl, inside and out. You should be so proud of her. And now we are family too! We look forward to more celebrations like this one in the years ahead.

 

Now is the time for advice for the couple. Erik, you need to learn the most important seven words any man can know if they plan to be happily married. Those words are and always will be “yes, dear.” “you were right” and “I’m

sorry.” The old adage, happy wife - happy life did not become an old adage because it isn’t true. It is very, very true!

 

Faith is important too. When you can’t see a solution to a problem when looking around, don’t be afraid to look up. God will be with you

always.

 

Also know that your support group, including me and your mother will always be here to assist, guide, or advise you.

 

I’m going to end with a movie quote. The most important value I have found is your integrity. That is something no one can take away from you. People try and test you hard, but it’s just a test, and sometimes letting go of some thingsthat looks like a really good thing, but compromising your integrity is not worth it in the long run.

 

So what I am saying is be true to your values and give yourself permission to “buzz the tower” every once in a while.

 

The two of you are heading into your greatest adventure, your greatest challenge, and your greatest accomplishment ever. Be kind to one another, and take care of each other.

 

I wish you all the happiness in the world. Let’s raise our glasses to Erik and Eileen! May you live happily ever after!

The Right Way To Use The Father Of The Groom Speech Examples

 

Can you remember what your brilliant English teacher said about the three parts of an essay back in school? Well, it’s been ages, but can you give it a whirl? You just give it a try. A wild guess would make me happy.

 

 

Please stop scratching your head…I will help you out. Here’s the answer: The three parts are: Introduction…body…conclusion.

 

The father of the groom speech example above has all these three parts. If you really want the writing of your father of the groom speech to go down well, you have to split your piece into these three main parts: introduction, body, and conclusion.

 

 

Your introductory remarks are like a magnetic force of attraction because it pulls everyone into your speech.  So you should come up with a killer hook.

 

 

To help you do this, I am going to cull a small portion of it from the above template so you can get an idea of how to write a captivating opener. Here’s our excerpt drawn from our father of the groom speech example.

‘’ Hello everyone. I’m Mike and I’m Eric’s father.

On behalf of his mom Connie and I, we’d like to

thank all of you for joining us in this very

special celebration. ‘’

 

 

You see, there are two sides of the coin when it comes to writing a great opening address and you should always treat each side with the same care and consideration if you want your father of the groom speech to be very successful.

 

 

With that in mind, let’s look at the first side of the coin: the opening remarks

 

It should include these writing elements:

  • Greetings and short-self introduction
  • Expression of gratitude
  • State who you are and your role in the wedding. This is particularly helpful if you are doing father of the groom best man speech.

 

Father of the groom speech etiquette

 

Here’s an example:

When my son asked me to be his best man, my heart missed several beats and I almost passed out. Well, I figured he could have been asked his best friend Mark because they have been friends for 30 years. But I realized that he saw me more than a dad and it brought to the fore our deepest respect and love for one another.

 

Got it, now?

 

The second part of your opening remarks is called the hook and I like it to a movie trailer. It has to inspire and engage your family and friends right out of the gate. Below are some practical ways to do just that.

 

 

First, you can tell a little story about your boy’s childhood.

 

Second, if his mom is not around or deceased, you can pay her a small tribute. Just don’t overdo it because your speech is loving tribute to your son and not a funeral speech. Never, ever forget that.

 

Third, you can make your opening lines witty by using any of these fathers of the groom speech quotes to help you sound smarter and more confident in your delivery.

 

These thoughtful quotes can help jazz up your speech. Please take note of the underlined quote because we will talk about it in our discussion.

  • Every father should remember one day his son will follow his example, not his advice.”- Charles F.Kettering
  • “My father gave me the greatest gift anyone could give another person, he believed in me.- Jim Valvano
  • “No love is greater than that of a father for his son.” ― Dan Brown
  • A son is the clearest reflection of his father in the world’’- Unknown

 

 

Now, let’s use the first quote to write a very short father of the groom speech.

 

 

When I look at how far my beloved son has come down the road, it reminds me of what my dad said when his grandson was born. As a new dad, I was struggling to raise a new family.

 

So, I sought his opinion on a few things and one of the things he said that stills run deep was: Mark, you should remember that one day your little baby would grow up to follow your example, not your advice’’

 

 

Did you notice how I infused the stressed quote into that short father of the groom speech? That’s just one way of using them to enhance a wedding speech.

 

 

As previously stated, the body comes after your introductory remarks? What do you say when crafting it? That looks easy, right? Hmm. That depends on a lot of factors.

 

 

Of the three aspects of your speech, the body is the toughest part to write. Here’s why. With so many stories about his life buzzing in your head like a swarm of bees, it can be pretty tough to separate ‘’the wheat from the chaff’’ so to speak.

 

But; it’s completely doable. How so? Let’s get back to the body of our speech so you can model your speech after it.

 

Before we look into it, there are a few things you should bear in mind before you craft the body of your father of the groom speech.

 

This Is How Long Your Father Of The Groom Speech Should Be

 

A question most fathers ask is this: How long should my father of the groom speech be? I am not here to give my personal opinion. My answer is based on my working experience of being a father of the groom speech writer for several years.

 

The length of your father of the groom speech should be like having your favorite meal. It should be enough to make you feel full. What does that mean? Ok, I will explain further.

 

I have written both long and short father of the groom speeches and in both instances, I made sure they were exciting and not boring. So, long or short is not something to worry about.

 

Simply put, your storyline should be engaging. But, if your son has asked you to speak for a few minutes (say five, seven, and so on), then your story should be within that time limit.

 

 

He won’t mind though if you beyond the allotted time provided your speech is lovely.  I think sharing this case study will put this matter to bed. One time, I wrote a long father of the groom speech for this nice gentleman. He loved it but had a little concern about its length.

 

 

Well, we couldn’t narrow it down as he‘d wanted because he wanted to include everything about his son. In the end, he got rid of a few things in his speech. But, it was still a little bit long. To cut a long story short, he went with it and came back to say that his speech was a crowd pleaser.

 

 

Another time, I wrote a not so long speech for this grandfather of the groom and he trimmed it down to just one page and his performance was very outstanding. Did you see the difference? Long and short father of the groom speeches can work for you. You have to decide the route to take.

 

 

All in all, the content and style of your speech trumps everything else.  Nonetheless, your speech is patchwork of every single detail of your son’s life and shouldn’t sound like a biography. If sounds like one, then you really need help.

 

 

Do you recall what I said about delivering your lines based on your personality at the outset of this article? Well, that is very vital when crafting the body of your speech.

 

 

If you are a funny guy, you may do a funny speech. If you get teary whenever you talk about your son, you can do a sentimental father of the groom speech.

 

 

On the whole, father of the groom speeches that blends humor, sentiments, and storytelling always seem to be preferred style the wedding crowd enjoy the most.

Having said that, let’s see how this extract (taken from the earlier example) can help you put down a decent story (the body) about your son without twisting facts.

‘’ As a child, Eric was very kind, friendly and

loved to entertain us with jokes.

 Erik has always been a very good traveler. We

climbed to the top of the Eiffel Tower when we

got to France. Later, we got to go to Florida and…

 

He was a whizz at math. I remember a grade

school teacher…

 

He was also a tremendous athlete in school. I

remember this one sniper…

 

 

Do you notice anything that stands out from that summary? Ok, let’s get on with this. To compose the body, you could write down one or more of these anecdotes to get it right:

 

  • Put down memories about his childhood and pick at least two really interesting stories you would like to use.
  • Put down a few memorable details about his youthful years.

 

Here, you may talk or write about his…

  • First job…Was he liked by his boss? What was his work ethic like? Did he love that job? Anything about that job that makes him proud?

 

  • High school graduation and scholarly achievements…was he on the deans or honors list? Did he graduate college?
  • Volunteerism and sports awards received…was he on the basketball or soccer team?

 

 

If your son’s youthful years weren’t particularly eventful, you can highlight his admirable traits. Was he kind? Giving? Is he a person of faith?

 

Reckoning that their sons are the main focus of their wedding speeches, some fathers only talk about their sons. But, you shouldn’t have to do that. Talk about your daughter-in-law too .

 

This example can give you an idea about what to say about her:

Grace gives Mike strength and the belief in himself to go out and achieve all that she wants. She’s an independent, strong lady anyway, but she is happier with him beside her. They are pretty inseparable.

 

 

Let’s do this together (here’s a small assignment for you) : Can you write something about your son using what I have just shared with you? You can….so please go ahead and do it.

 

What to say to your son and daughter-in-law at son's wedding

 

 

Let’s Look At The Closing Chapter Of This Post: The Conclusion

 

Whenever fathers think of rounding up their speeches, they thinking of writing it along these simple lines:

‘’Now is the time for advice for the couple. Erik,

you need to learn….

I wish you all the happiness in the world. Let’s

raise our glasses to Erik and ‘’

 

 

That’s okay as it’s a tried and tested approach of ending on a good note. But, when it comes to ending your father of the groom, memorableness should be the watch word because your closing lines are what your family and friends will remember most.

 

 

So, how can you end on a very memorable note? I am happy to share a few simple but proven ideas with you.

 

 

First, you can end with a witty quote. This quote can come from your own mind, movies, proverbs, and so on.

 

Don’t you think this quote will stick in the mind of your listeners if it’s used as your closing statement?

"The heart wants what it wants." — English love proverb

 

Second, if you are musically gifted, you can do a beautiful rendition of this funny song.

 

 

Imagine tweaking the lyrics a bit and ending with that!

The Meaning Of Love By Krina Shah

To love is to share life together,
to build special plans just for two,
to work side by side,
and then smile with pride,
as one by one, dreams all come true.

To love is to help and encourage
with smiles and sincere words of praise,
to take time to share,
to listen and care
in tender, affectionate ways.

To love is to have someone special,
one on whom you can always depend
to be there through the years,
sharing laughter and tears,
as a partner, a lover, a friend.

To love is to make special memories
of moments you love to recall,
of all the good things

Father Of The Groom Speech: Here Are Time-Tested Father Of The Groom Speech Tips And Ideas To Help You Write A Wedding Speech For Your Son And Daughter-In-Law

 

Writing a heartfelt father of the groom speech can sometimes feel like facing a court of competent jurisdiction.

Picture this: You are brought before this respectful, impartial judge and you are asked a simple question.

You certainly have the right facts and figures but you suddenly feel faint and begin to mumble like a toddler that it appears as though you are a pathological liar.

 

Similarly, when fathers are asked to say a few words about their sons and daughter-in-laws at the wedding reception or rehearsal dinner, their father of the groom speeches don’t turn out as expected.

6

 

They have tons of precious memories deep inside their brains but it gets hard when they have to tie the loose ends together to form a sweet father of the groom wedding speech.

 

With a father of the groom wedding speech in mind, the question now on any curious lips is:

What Should The Father Of The Groom Say In His Wedding Speech About The Groom And Bride?

 

It’s actually much easier than you can ever imagine even if you have never done a speech of this nature before or not too sure if you have what it really takes to write and deliver a great father of the groom wedding speech.

 

Leaving a mark with your wedding toast actually boils down to making a plan and sticking to that plan like a soldier at war because proper planning is the womb of every achievement, big or small.

Father of the groom wedding speech

Before we get into the heart of the matter, let’s take a moment to reflect about the common side effects of nervousness on public speaking performance so you can figure out how to calm your nerves and speak with clarity, purpose, passion, and confidence.

Please be advised that I am going to dwell on this a bit since it can be the barrier between you and success on your son’s wedding day

 

Ok…So, how do you go from being a very terrified speaker to feeling very confident like President Obama behind a microphone?

 

Well, these confidence boosting tips can help you out even if you are as anxious as a hungry squirrel crossing a very busy street.

 

Allow me to digress here.

 

If you are always on the edge anytime you are about to speak in public, then you probably have one or more of these fears:

 

  • Fear of failure culminating from past speaking failures
  • Fear of being ridiculed or laughed at
  • Fear of imperfection
  • Fear of being despised
  • Fear of not being good enough

 

All these worries ultimately contribute to low self-esteem which affects your ego and self-confidence.

 

But that shouldn’t bog you down because just about anyone( I mean anyone) can develop a spirit of self-confidence in anything they set sights on. Self-confidence is a learned skill and not an ingrained thing.

 

For example, I am so sure of my public speaking skills and abilities when I am on stage but that’s not the case when I am in the kitchen because I am not a good cook. Does that in anyway indicate that I lack self- confidence? No and yes in both scenarios.

 

That means that the more you know about something, you will become naturally confident at doing things the right way. If you’ve been a victim of past speaking failures, then I recommend that you do one of these:

  • Acknowledge your weakness/past errors and seek help from the right sources since no man is an Island
  • Leave the past in the past and say to yourself that you would do all you can to make your son and daughter proud with your father of the groom wedding speech.
  • Learn to boost your writing and speaking skills by taking small steps daily to achieve your goal.

 

Having said all that, let’s look at…

How To Get Content Ideas For Your Father Of The Groom Wedding Speech

 

Once again, it all boils down to having a solid plan so you are not overwhelmed. This quote by Abraham Lincoln strongly resonates with me when it comes to finding content ideas for what to say at your son and daughter-in-law’s wedding.

 

He says: ''If I had six hours to chop down a tree, I’d spend the first four hours sharpening my axe''

Father of the groom speech writing quote

You have to spend some time digging up some tips, ideas, and advice about how to write a father of the groom wedding speech.

 

As a father of the groom speech writer, I follow these same exact steps to come up with ideas for writing the content of my clients’ father of the groom speeches and I recommend that you do same as it will save hours when you have to…to borrow part of Lincoln’s words ''chop down the tree.''

 

First, look within for help. If you have ever made a speech that was really good, then go back and dust it off and carefully examine how it was written.

 

Again, if you know a father of a groom whose speech really went down well, you can seek for help and have a brainstorming session together. 

 

It could also be your own son, daughter, brother, a friend, and so on. That way, you can come up with some terrific ideas you would never have considered if you were doing it all by yourself.

 

Second, you can watch some father of the groom speech videos to get a fair idea of how awesome father of the groom speeches are made. Thanks to video sharing platforms, you can watch a few of them.

 

But the good and bad ones are on youtube.com.  I always watch both clips and learn from them.

 

For example, if you insert your preferred keyword ''father of the groom speech into the search bar, these results will pop up:

 

How to write a father of the groom speech

 

 

By the way, here are some wonderful clips you can learn a thing or two from.

 

As you watch these fathers tell their stories on film, do a little bit of self-analysis and ask yourself some basic questions like:

  • Did I enjoy watching this video?
  • Can I simply model my father of my groom speech after this video example?
  • Are there aspects of the clips I can borrow for my own toast?

 

Ok….. So, here are both videos.

Third, my all-time favorite tool I always look into whenever I get stuck is: wedding speech for son and daughter-in-law examples/templates.

 

Here are my main reasons and why you should consult well-written father of the groom speech examples/templates when you are looking for creative ideas, when you get stuck, or even when you don’t know how and where to start.

 

Take, As An Example, This Father Of The Groom Speech Example/Template

Can we please read it now? Let’s go over it carefully since we would use bits and pieces of it when we begin to analyze the whole thing in the subsequent chapters.

Hello all! My name is Jack and I’m the very

proud father of Samuel. I guess I should now

introduce myself as Diana’s father-in-law. I like

that Samuel was the first born for my wife Alice and I.

 

I was so proud, even before I knew what a man

he would become! But then, I realized that I

have been blessed. As a child he was very

athletic and strong. He walked at 9 years old. I

think that is also when he first kicked a ball.

 

 

Our house was full of balls! He excelled at every sport, particularly basketball. In fact, for those of you who don’t know, Samuel was inducted into the Hall of Fame in Melbourne at 36 years old.

 

Before basketball there was soccer. He was also

quite good at that. I will never forget when he

was nine years old and we went to Israel.

 

We were walking through a park and we saw some teenagers playing. These were like 14- or 15-year-olds. I asked if Samuel could join. He jumped in and scored a couple of goals.

 

These older kids were so jealous of his skill that

a couple of them actually pushed him! He fell

and cried a little. I of course jumped to his

defense and asked how they could do that to a

smaller child.

 

Their answer was that in Israel that is how they play. I helped Samuel up and brushed him off and asked him what he wanted to do. He said he wanted to play.

He played and scored a couple more goals. We left with big smiles on our faces. I only wish that I had said to those rotten kids “In Australia, THAT is how we play!”

 

As a teenager, we had no problems with Samuel.

He was always an athlete, so that kept him busy.

He also started going to the gym and building

that body. He played basketball all over the

country and even internationally.  Alice and I

did nothing but watch him play for several

years.

 

After he was done playing competitively, we

had to do find some friends so that we would

have something to do on a Saturday night! He

was a good big brother to his sisters, Melissa and Jennifer were always well-protected.

 

They felt like they had their own bodyguard! He was popular and had many friends. I’m glad to say that I see a few of you here.

 

So if I were to give him any criticism, it would

be that he is such a nervous passenger in the car!

 

Of course, he will tell you that I’m a terrible

driver. And his mother will agree with him

because they are both ridiculous when it comes

to this subject. Of course I’m a fine driver. I

owned a car dealership. I have had many very

expensive cars in my life! I do however like to

look at properties while we are on the road.

 

I see opportunity everywhere. Samuel sees oncoming cars and yells at me to keep my eyes on the road.

 

 

Really though, not a day goes by without

someone coming up to me and giving me

sincere compliments and praise for Samuel.

 

 

They tell me how fortunate I am to have a man like him as a son. I always say that my wealth lies not with any material or financial success, but with the family I was blessed with.

 

Then it was off to University where he

completed two degrees. Then he came back to

the family business and became my right hand man.

 

My parents always wanted to have our name onthe door followed by AND SONS. Samuel, like me, had great respect for my parents, his

grandparents. And they loved him and his sisters unconditionally.  When I became a grandfather, I realized how special grandchildren are.

 

Now I’m looking forward to having a few with our family name. Around six years ago Samuel brought a beautiful, smart, funny girl to our house. Of course, I’m speaking of you, Diana.

 

We could see the attraction immediately, but we also felt a bond. We have loved her like a daughter for years now, and I’m so happy that it’s now official.

 

Mark and Amanda, you have raised a beautiful

girl, inside and out. You should be so proud.

And now we are family too!

 

I do feel the need to say that I know Samuel’s

parents Lul and Bill and my mother and

father, Jerry and Karen are with us today in

spirit and are proud of Samuel and Diana.

 

I want to acknowledge them and the gifts they bestowed on Samuel in his lifetime. You two are the future, but one cannot forget the past. You cannot put a young head on old shoulders.

 

Advice for the two of you? Look out for each

other, always try to understand each other’s

feelings, and discuss things maturely when you

disagree so that you never regret anything that

you say. Mean words can never be unsaid.

Never take each other for granted, and always

be the others best friend.

 

Someone way smarter than me once said “Marriage is always believing that the other person got the short end of the deal.” Never stop feeling lucky to have one another.

 

I wish you both health, happiness, and every

blessing that I can bestow. We love you both!

To Samuel and Diana! L’Chaim!

 

Four

 

That is a great example, right? It’s easy for any dad to look at this sample and assume that you can do something than better that example. Yes, you can. But, you may lose your sanity if you don’t probe deeper before putting in the work.
 

Believe it or not, there’s more to it than the eye can see. To write something captivating like the one we’ve just read, you need to sharpen your axe before you can chop the big tree so to speak.

 

I am sure you are wondering how you can do that. It all comes back to having a plan. Before you start to type away, you first have to decide on the kind of wedding speech you wish to make.

 

 

From writing and reviewing quite a lot of father of the groom speeches, I have realized that there are nine kinds of father of the groom wedding speeches dads can pick from.

They include the following:

  • Funny father of the groom speech
  • Emotional/Sentimental father of the groom speech
  • Dramatic father of the groom speech
  • Poetic father of the groom speech
  • Joint parents(father and mother) of the groom speech
  • Best man father of the groom speech: This applies when you are asked by your son to be his best man
  • Music/Rap father of the groom wedding speech: Here’s example:


  • Religious/Christian father of the groom speech
  • Combo approach: A little bit of all the above styles

 

 

The question is: What kind of father of groom speech do you want to deliver? Just write it down as it will determine the right style and tone of your speech.

 

For example, if you are a naturally funny person, then you can opt for a funny father of the groom wedding speech.

 

Again, you might also want to consider this:

How Long Should My Father Of The Groom Speech Be?

There’s a lot of contention about this topic. But, here’s my honest opinion based on my personal experience as a speech writer.  A wedding speech should be like a good movie. It should hold your attention from start to finish, so you want more of it.

Father of the groom wedding speech examples

So, if your presentation is long or short is not the issue here. Whether long or short, it should be engaging.

 

I have heard some good speeches that lasted for 10 minutes and made every one’s day. Some others lasted for just three minutes and received just a smattering of applause. All in all, just make sure you have a nice story to tell.

 

The ball is now in your court. Do you want to make your speech long or short? Please write it down. Moreover, you should also consider when and where you are going to deliver this speech. Will you do it at the engagement party, rehearsal dinner at the wedding reception?

 

After you have laid the ground, the writing process itself would be a breeze. So, how do you go from staring at the blank notepad to filling its pages with precious memories about your son and daughter-in-law?

 

Read on to find out how to do just even if you think your writing stinks.

 

Things can get fairly easy if you first create an outline/structure for your father of the groom speech.

 

By creating one from a well-thought out example, you will save yourself the agony of not only knowing where to start but also spending too much time stressing, thinking and worrying about what to include and what not to say in your wedding speech to your son and daughter-in-law.

 

At this point, I would like us to look at an outline/structure culled from the above speech sample. Think of it as the bare-bones of your speech. World-renowned public speaker and coach, Brian Tracy, calls it a working outline.

 

Here it is:

  • Start with a greeting
  • Mention your name and your relationship with the bride and groom
  • Thank the wedding guests for coming
  • Start with a hook
  • Talk about your son
  • Talk about your daughter-in-law
  • Dispense some marriage advice
  • Father of the groom toasts to his son and daughter-in-law

 

Most wedding speeches are centered on the above bullet points and you have to build your father of the groom speech on this very robust foundation. After creating such an outline, you have to pick out each idea and support what you say with the right facts.

 

Again, let’s use the father of the groom speech above as a basis for coming up with the supporting material.

  • Start with a greeting.

Here’s an example:

Hello everyone. I’m Ben and I’m Marc’s father.

On behalf of his mom Melissa and I, we’d like to thank all of you for joining us in this very special celebration.

 

I think that should be easy to write.Ok…let’s look at the second point:

  • Mention your name and your relationship with the bride and groom

As an example, you can modify this:

‘’My name is Jack and I’m the very proud  father of Samuel. I guess I should now introduce myself as Diana’s father-in-law…’’

 

If you are doing a joint speech with your wife or the groom’s mother, this can be your opening lines:

Hello everyone. I’m Ben and I’m Marc’s father and this my wife, Melissa.  We are the proud parents of the groom. We’d like to thank all of you for joining us in this very special celebration as our son and daughter-in-law are joined in marriage.

6

 

Now, let’s see next topic:

  • Thank the wedding guests for coming

Here’s an example you can learn from:

I want to thank you all for being here today. It’s such a special occasion and it’s been made more meaningful by having each of you with us to celebrate the love of Romeo and Emily.

 

Next on the bill is:

  • Start with a hook

The hook is like a movie trailer. Your hook should grab attention. This could be a joke, a personal story, some funny remarks about the bride and groom, use quotes to start, sing a well-known love song or share how it feels like whenever you are asked to give a speech.

 

Below are two examples:

First, a father of the groom joke:

Hello everyone! My name is Michael and I’m

Hor’s very proud father. On behalf of his

mother, Mir and I, thank you so much for

joining us today to celebrate love! This beautiful

couple have the world at their feet today, don’t

they? They say “love is blind”, but I hope

this adage isn’t true for Hor, so he can

see his lovely bride today! And Carline, I’m

guessing that the old adage “beauty is in

the eye of the beholder” is true for you

when you look at my son Hor!

What to say at your son's wedding as a father

Second, you can also share how you feel about giving speeches.

Afterwards, you have to do this:

  • Talk about your son

The trick here is to write down stories or anecdotes you want to share with the wedding crowd. Just put down lots of them before choosing those you wish to highlight.

 

From personal observation, most fathers build their storylines around these themes:

  • Anecdotes/memories of your son growing up: Here, you write down stories about his childhood, teenage years, what kind of man he’s grown up into...etc.

 

Then, you pick up a story from the different milestones and use it to create a short father of the groom speech.

  • Stories that define your friendship
  • ‘’ Proud moments’’ stories: Here, you mention why you are so proud of him and back it up with a story or two from his personal life.

 

Someone told me that one of the proudest moments as a parent was when his son courageously put out a farm fire.

 

Another proud moment for another parent was when his son walked across the dais to receive his high school diploma.

 

Question: What are your most proud moments? And do you want those magical moments to be the focus of your speech? If you do, just write it down and start a brainstorming session with his mom to recapture those good times.

Moreso, you can put a positive spin on embarrassing stories if it has a funny twist to it.

  • Write about your shared experiences

I remember writing a story for a father who said he and his son enjoyed kayaking. Once, they travelled to Botswana, Africa and while having fun on the water, his son fell into the water when he saw what he thought was a whale. He wasn’t a great swimmer and he began crying out for help which caught the attention of some locals.

 

Recalling stories like that shows how close you are to him and the guests would want to hear more of such father-son encounters.

You probably have plenty of them in your head. You just have to reflect to get them all down in  your notepad.

  • Focus on the future

 

I recently wrote a father of the groom speech who said he wanted to dwell on his son’s transformation into a wonderful man. This is how I started it.

''From his early days, he brought an infectious joy into our lives that warmed our hearts. And as he grew, so did his determination and thoughtfulness. He navigated the path of life with grace and strength, even with his older brothers providing their fair share influence, if you catch my drift! But today, we’re not just here to reminisce about the past…''

 

Here’s my homework: Which of those ideas would you like to go for? It’s possible to combine a little bit of each if you want to.

 

That brings us to the next point:

 

Key points to include:

  • Talk about who she is to you and your family
  • Your initial impressions when you first meet her
  • Talk about her wonderful traits
  • You may share how she balances out your son

 

That takes us to this:

  • Share some marriage advice

Culled from the sample are these words:

''Look out for each

other, always try to understand each other’s

feelings, and discuss things maturely when you

disagree so that you never regret anything that

you say. Mean words can never be unsaid.

Never take each other for granted, and always

be the others best friend ''

 

Before you go back to your seat…Just ask everyone to raise their glasses and toast to the bride and groom.

 

Well, you may combine your toast with any of these closing techniques if you really want to end on a memorable note:

  • Frame your speech and gift to the couple or give them a very thoughtful gift
  • You can ask a few questions about the bride and groom and give gifts to those who have the right answers.

Ok...let’s get started by looking at this:

What Should The Father Of The Groom Say In His Speech? 

 

That’s a great question. Let me start by saying that being a father is an incredible blessing so many folks take for granted. From when your son is a little baby until when he becomes a fully grown adult, you’re responsible for shaping him into the person he’s today.

 

When you cast your mind back and see how fast time has flown by, you can't help but look back with pride for doing a great job as his dad. Speaking of that reminds me of what father’s go through when they are asked by their sons to make a father of the groom speech or deliver a few remarks on their wedding day or at the rehearsal dinner.

 

You see, it can be downright scary if you feel nervous whenever you stand before a small crowd to make a presentation. And if you’ve never made one your whole lifetime, you might end up having sleepless nights.

 

The good news is you can make it no matter what’s going through your mind because there are two indispensable tools that can help you calm your nerves,  get the right words so you can easily deliver the best ever father of the groom speech.   

 

But the bigger question you might want to ask is this: Which tools can help me write a great father of the groom wedding speech?

Father of The Groom Speech Examples/ Templates

Hello everyone! I want to say that I’m very proud of James and Mitchelle, as well as Bernadette. All of you have put together a wonderful celebration today! I know that Covid  tried to throw a monkey wrench into your plans, but you two showed patience and grace while all of that was going on. And today we can be together to witness your commitment to one another!

 

James was a happy child, curious but shy, always fun and loved parties even as a toddler!

He grew to be independent, but still loved parties especially the ones he threw herself!

And concerts. He had this knack for getting His uncles to take her to concerts. He would play them  by calling each of them “her favorite uncle”. They  always fell for it too! Not that it was too painful.

 

Taking him to concerts helped keep me quite relevant, so I guess I should thank him for

plying my heart strings with his lies and flattery!

 

James also persevered. No matter the odds. You know he took 11 tries before passing his

driving test, right? While that may give you pause before letting him behind the wheel of

your car, it should say that you would want him by your side if you need tenacity and undying faith to win the day! He’s also quite clever, passionate about what does, and has a strong work ethic.

 

I recall that when he first entered  college, we were warned that he would get homesick and we should remain strong and not let him get to us. Yeah, well I failed at that test. He called me after a day and I went and got him.Talk about a dad's love for his son.

 

He had already made friends though, so they were taking stuff out of my car as fast as I was putting stuff in! But we did eventually get him packed and home. He re-entered another Uni the following semester, but again after a day he was calling me. And again I was there to rescue him.  However, again with his tenacious nature, James took a gap year and returned to college and this time he stayed!

 

When Mitchelle came on the scene, James wanted to keep it a secret for a while, probably

not wanting to expose her to all of us crazy relatives right off the bat. But Bernadette put

together a top secret whatsapp page and kept us all abreast of what was going on.

I couldn’t wait to meet her, and as soon as I did , I knew that she was a keeper. She’s fun to be around. She loves to prank us all and keeps us all on our toes which is good for us. She’s also family oriented and blends well with our family.

 

But most of all, she adores our own Stephanie. And none of us would settle for anything less. As you embark today on your next great adventure, please keep this in mind.

You are walking a path together now. All of us will walk with you from time to time, along with many more folks in your future, to include your children. But never let any of us walk between you two, because we are all here for just a short jaunt, the long walk will always be the two of you.

 

Every day try to remember how you felt when you woke up this morning. How excited

you were at the idea that you were getting married today. If you can remember that feeling,

you will be able to carry it along with you no matter how long the path is.

 

Know that today you take all our best intentions, hopes and wishes with you as you start along your journey. Call us if you need anything, and just be good to one another. I love you both with all my heart, and am so proud of both of you! Let’s raise our glasses to Stephanie and James!

 

To happily ever after!

Excellent speech!  Isn’t it? What can you add to your own wedding speech for your son based on what you've learned from the above father of the groom speech sample or template?

 

 

To help you understand what went into crafting that father of the groom wedding speech sample or template, I'm going to break down the above example into bits and pieces.

 

So, please bear with me for just a little while and I will share with you tips and ideas about how to deliver the best wedding speech ever for your son and your future daughter-in-law so you are not overwhelmed.

 

Having said that, let’s see…

 

How To Start Your Father Of The Groom Speech

Have you ever pondered why some wedding presenters get the audience's attention right when they grab the microphone while so many struggle to do that even in front of a very small crowd?

 

It all boils down to your mindset and expectation. But get this from me.  The wedding guests expect you to share a few stories about your son and not there for something that’s worthy of an Oscar award.

 

But, you would do yourself a lot of good when you start off on the right note.  Hence, your introductory remarks should be unique and engaging.

 

Writing a conventional introduction, as seen below , is the first easy bird you may take out in this situation:

‘’ Hello everyone! I want to say that I’m very proud of James and Mitchelle, as well as Bernadette. All of you have put together a wonderful celebration today! I know that Covid  tried to throw a monkey wrench into your plans, but you two showed patience and grace while all of that was going on.’’

 

Action tip to help you get started: First, grab a pen and paper, or since you are already in front of your keyword, type or write down the names of those who have really enriched your son's life, along with a little note of gratitude.

  • Such individuals and personalities may include folks like:

    • Your spouse/the groom’s mom
    • The bride's mother and father
    • Your colleagues, coaches, and instructors
    • Families of the bride
    • His siblings, aunts, uncles,
    • His grandparents
    • You can mention those who were unable to attend the wedding.
    • You may also acknowledge deceased friends and family if they played a key role in your son’s life. 

 

That’s not all. If you scroll up and look at the example again, you will see that you can use the same stone to kill another bird—I'll refer to it as the "bird"—in the following way: opening remarks portion "b."

 

Here is a short sample:

James was a happy child, curious but shy, always fun and loved parties even as a toddler!

He grew to be independent, but still loved parties especially the ones he threw herself!

And concerts. He had this knack for getting His uncles to take her to concerts. He would play them…

 

By the time you come to this section of your father of the groom speech, you need to have their attention and have them eagerly anticipating the rest of your wedding speech.

Therefore, it's always advantageous to start off on a high note, and these ‘’speech-tested’’ recommendations can facilitate that.

What should a father say to his son on wedding day

First, you can begin by telling a brief history of what happened before his birth.

Question: Do you really remember what happened prior to when your precious son was born? I remember writing a father of a groom speech for a very wonderful man who said he was so nervous about being a first time dad that he read many books about parenting and fatherhood.

Another terribly worried father rode through a garbage dump before getting back home as he was very much concerned about how to be a great dad. 

 

Stuff like that always brings life to stories. So, take a moment and walk down memory lane and write down several anecdotes about your son. If you can’t remember any of such stories, you may use the next idea.

 

Second, reflect upon your marriage to the groom's mother (if you are still married) and reminisce about your feelings at that time. This is particularly helpful if you and your son’s marriage are quite similar. A dad wrote to me last summer and said his son found the bride in the same college he attended and wanted to add that to his father of the groom speech. What a clever idea!

 

Let me ask you this: In what ways is your son’s wedding day like yours? Just write it down and start with it.

Third, you can use one or more of these fathers of the groom speech quotes to open on a poignant or moving note, then your speech would be a hit with everyone.

 

Here Are A Few Quotes For The Opening Lines Of Your Father Of The Groom Speech

  • ''We became friend's, not just father and son''-  Richard Bergeron
  • ''No matter how tall a son grows, he will always look up to this dad'' -Pam Brown
  • One of the greatest gifts you can give your teenage boy is the gift of letting him know you get it. You have been there''- Sebastian R. James
  • There must always be a struggle between father and son. While one aims at power, the other aims for independance''
  • "A father’s bond with his son's relationship is a true friendship that no one can ever sever."

 

Now, let's try using the bolded quote :  "A father's bond with his son is a true friendship that no one can ever sever." to come up with an emotional father of the groom speech.

 

Here you go:

''This evening's celebration is a very beautiful moment when it feels so awesome to be a father. I am Dan, very proud father of this handsome groom and father of four ex-grooms! So, you can imagine what I have been through. Giving speeches every now and then that my siblings started calling me The Speech Guy… Glad it’s a cool nickname because I wouldn’t have said it here if it was so weird.

 

By the way, Dan is our only son. He graced our lives 26 years ago, and I'm thankful for the friendship I've cultivated with my son over this period. And I am grateful for the friendship I have grown throughout that time with my son. ''

 

Did you observe how I inserted the word "friendship" into that short passage? That is just how it ought to be if lifting the entire quote won’t just fit.

Now, let us see…

How To Write The Content Of Your Father-Of The Groom Wedding Speech

 

The content of your speech is the most important aspect, yet most fathers find it so hard to get their scattered ideas to make sense on paper because it is not an easy thing to condense years' worth of recollections into a succinct narrative.

 

The majority of fathers who write to me worry that they have an idea for a speech but are unable to effectively organize their thoughts in a coherent manner. 

 

I am aware that this is a significant challenge for the majority of fathers of the groom, and if you are wondering how you can quickly generate excellent ideas for this section of your speech, the next section would be very helpful.

 

How To Get Ideas For Your Father Of The Groom Wedding Speech

 

Here are some proven tips and ideas to help you get some good ideas for your wedding speech for your son and daughter-in-law.

 

First, make a structure for the presentation's flow first. To do that, you must first choose the part of your story on which you want your speech to dwell on.

Ask yourself this: Do you want your plot to develop from the time your son entered the picture until he met the bride

If so, you should write down special memories you have had together and limit your wedding toast to one or two of them.

Once more, you might choose to use a memorable incident from your boy's youth or adolescence.

 

I've recently witnessed situations where the father of the groom merely drew attention to anecdotes about the bride and groom and emphasized what makes them special or how they complement one another. If you want to wing it or prepare a very brief father of the groom speech, this always works.

 

Well, here’s a very short and simple father of the groom wedding that simply melds the lives of the couple.

''We immigrated here from Aremenia when my son was only 8 eight years old, and the adjustment period was really challenging for us all, especially our son.

In order to succeed in his new environment, he had to acquire a foreign language. In the process, he met Sarah his bride who has been a huge blessing to his life. I have witnessed their love develop over time. They both enjoy being outside.''

Did you notice how I wrote that short extract? This approach is quite effective if you want to wing your speech.

 

Now, I want you to do this!

Scroll up this page and read the above father of the groom wedding toast and other examples you find elsewhere. Then, jot down a few fond memories about the groom and some anecdotes about the bride (if you really know her) too.  Then, use it to craft the content of your story which you can always go back to polish up.

Now, let's see…

 

How to Write A Memorable Conclusion for Your Father Of The Groom Speech

 

This section of your speech should be quite simple to and is just like taking the last bite of your favorite meal. Guess what?  The wedding guests would remember what you said and hold you in high esteem as an outstanding speaker (even if you are not one) if your closing remarks strikes a chord with the guests.

 

To end on a memorable note, you may use one or more of the following suggestions.

First, if the couple is Christian and you are a religious person or a fervent Christian, you can use any of the following verses to create a message of faith and share it with your family and friends.

Proverbs 31:10: Who can find a virtuous woman? for her price is far above rubies.

Mark 10:9: Therefore what God has joined together, let no one separate.

John 15:12: My command is this: Love each other as I have loved you.

Luke 6:31: Do to others as you would have them do to you.

Corinthians 16:14: Do everything in love.

Second, you may finish off with a well-known song. If you can modify the lyrics and make it yours, that would be a feather in your cap. Here’s how one father did it beautifully.

 

 

Third, if for any reason you don't want to offer any advice, you can just weave in one of the good wishes listed below.

  • Seeing you so content and in love today makes my heart sing with happiness! On your wedding day, congratulations to the happy couple!
  • May you find true love and happiness. I hope you two have a wonderful life together as husband and wife. May the years you spend together be filled with love, joy, and blessings.
  • I hope you experience the sort of love that endures and deepens when you marry today. I hope your marriage serves as an example for other couples!

Fourth, you can close by offering some marriage advice.

Here’s an example:

As we celebrate this beautiful union, I would like to offer a few words of advice to the happy couple. Compromise, commitment, and communication—the three pillars that will strengthen the foundation of your marriage.

Wedding speech by father to son and daughter-in-law

Life is a journey filled with twists and turns, but through compromise, you will find harmony even in the most challenging moments. With unwavering commitment, you will weather any storm that comes your way, knowing that your love is stronger than any adversity.

Then, you can end your father of the groom speech by offering a toast to the happy couple!

P.S: Most dads do this...Have you considered it? Want to write and give a great wedding speech like the one above but can't seem to get started because you don't know the exact words to use?

Or not too sure if what you intend writing will be well received by the guests?

Let's help you make your son, wife, and family proud, and let the wedding guests say great things about your speech.

Here’s what one nervous and skeptical dad called Glen sent over after the wedding was over

Hey Dan, I just wanted to thank you once again for the speech you wrote with me. My goal was met afterward, I was told by many "what a beautiful speech" and received a standing ovation. I couldn't have done this without you. God Bless Dan!- Glen, U.S.A

Those lucky enough to have experienced the unbreakable bond between a father and son can attest that it is incredibly rewarding and elevating. There is no other type of affection comparable to this kind.

 

I truly believe that you did everything in your power to make sure that your family was taken care of. Had you known the time you had left with your son was limited, I am sure that you would have spent every moment with him.

 

However, there comes a time that when your son finds the person he truly loves and cares for and decides to spend the next chapter of his life with that person and you have to deliver a heartfelt father of the groom speech that encapsulates your friendship, what he means to you, and what you look forward to as he starts a new union with the bride.

Father of the groom wedding speech

Don't fret if it feels like you don’t have a way with words or don’t have the confidence to speak before your family and friends.

 

In this post, I am going to share with you easy-to-understand tips and ideas you can weave into your script so you come up with the best ever father of the groom speech or toast.

 

It All Starts With A Plan

 

Having a well-planned out goal or objective for your wedding toast is an essential first step to helping you come up with the right content for your wedding speech for your son and daughter-in-law.

 

So, spend a little time to consider what you want to communicate in your message, and make sure it is clear and concise. Once you have this theme figured out, use it as your basis for coming up with new ideas and developing them until your message is finished.

 

For your father of the groom wedding speech toast, you should first ask yourself these simple questions to figure out the theme of your speech:

  • Do people know that I'm funny? And can I really make a very funny wedding toast?
  • Do tears come to my eyes when I talk about my own kids? Should I say something about how much I care about them?
  • Don't most wedding speeches from the father of the groom sound the same? And can I do something different and memorable with mine?
  • Am I a person with a lot of wit? And should I write my speech like a poem?
  • People know me for my ability to tell stories. Should I just talk about my son and his bride?
  • Do I have a very nice voice? Can I write a short song about the bride and groom and sing it however I want?
  • Am I good enough to take bits and pieces from each of the above speech styles and make them my own?

 

Action Tip: Which of those speaking styles fit your personality and style? Just write it down.

 

 

Having settled on something that you are comfortable with, you should watch a few father of the groom speech videos to get a handle on the way father of the groom speeches are delivered at the wedding reception or rehearsal dinner night.

 

For example, if you will be speaking at the wedding reception or rehearsal dinner night, you can watch these short videos for some insights about how such presentations are made.

Afterwards, you need to understand how the writing process works.

This Is How the Writing Process Works

The writing process begins with understanding your audience and your purpose for writing. After that, it's important to brainstorm ideas, decide on an organization structure, and outline your points.

 

From there, you're ready to begin the actual crafting of your father of the groom toast by researching and creating your content. Finally, check it thoroughly for errors and start practicing to build your self-confidence.

 

Now, let’s examine how to write your father of the groom speech itself. As with every kind of write-up, your father of the groom speech should have these:

  • An introduction
  • Body or content
  • Conclusion…

 

Don’t worry about the three bullet points because we are going to look at each point one step at a time.

 

First and foremost, let's talk about how to write your opening words or what’s known as the introduction. This part of your speech is pretty easy to write. But you should make sure that it includes everyone you want to say thank you to.

 

For example:

  • 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 spirit 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.

 

Here’s my homework for you: Please write down the names of personalities you would like to acknowledge in your toast.

 

Here’s an example:

I would like to acknowledge a few guests who have been in Steven’s life throughout his 33 years of life. Of course, and most importantly is Steven’s mom and my lovely wife Evelyn. The Hezi family is a large, united and loving bunch and we are so happy to officially include Martha into our family.

 

This Comes Next After Your Opening Lines

After you've introduced yourself and welcomed the guests, your opening words for the father of the groom's speech should hook the audience and keep their attention throughout.

 

That being the case, how can you ensure that they listen to every word that you say? Honestly, it's not that hard. Most dads will jump right in with a tale from their own upbringing. Most people, I believe, choose this path since it's what they're most used to hearing.

 

There are, however, more effective methods of getting the attention of your audience right from the off in a speech. Here are two approaches to take.

 

First, before delivering a speech, it may be of value to begin with a prayer or blessing, especially if you come from a Christian family. Starting with this can set the tone for your words to come.

6

 

Here’s an example to get you started


Dear Lord,

We come before you today to give thanks for the love and guidance that fathers provide. We ask for your blessings on this special day as we celebrate the union of [bride and groom's name].

We pray for [father of groom's name], that you would give him wisdom and strength as he gives his son away. May he know that his love and guidance has helped shape the man his son has become and that he can take pride in the person his son has become.

We ask that you bless this new union, that it may be filled with love, joy, and respect. May [bride and groom's name] continue to grow in their love for each other and may they always seek your guidance in their marriage.

We give you all the praise and honor, in Jesus' name we pray. Amen.

 

Second, you can start the anecdote by providing an account of the events that transpired before and after your son's birth. The example provided above can help you to do this well.

 

Once upon a time, my wife and I were blessed with the arrival of our first child, our son [son's name]. It was a long journey to get to that point, as we had been trying to start a family for many years. We had gone through multiple rounds of fertility treatments and had even considered adoption at one point. But, through it all, we never gave up hope that we would one day become parents.

 

When [son's name] was finally born, it was a moment of pure joy and elation. We were overjoyed to finally hold our little bundle of joy in our arms and couldn't believe that we were actually parents. From that moment on, our lives were forever changed for the better.

 

As [son's name] grew up, we watched in amazement as he developed his own unique personality and interests. He was always curious and eager to learn new things, and had a heart full of love and kindness. We were so proud of the young man he was becoming and couldn't wait to see all that he would accomplish in life.

 

Third, if you are an emotionally expressive person, consider sharing a story about the emotions you experienced at your own wedding to the groom's mom. Then it can be connected with your own son’s upcoming nuptials.

 

Fourth, if you are a singer or a musician, why not write a unique song about your son's life? Learning to play and sing the song will be quite an experience as loved ones admire your musical talent. Such a musical video could then become an inspiring keepsake. Just take a look at this classic.

Fifth, are you renowned for your wit? If so, then you should use some memorable quotes in your wedding toast to commemorate the occasion.

Sixth, you can make your father of the groom speech hilarious by starting with a joke.  Will this work for you?  

"I may be the father of the groom, but don't worry, I won't be stealing the spotlight today. After all, I've had my time in the spotlight, it's my son's turn now. But just in case, I brought my own spotlight, and a disco ball”

 

Now, Let’s See How to Write The Body Of Your Speech

 

It goes without saying that this part of the speech should be relatively easy to write, since it's all based on your own memories and stories. After all, I'm sure you can easily remember humorous and heartfelt accounts of your son's life without breaking a sweat.

 

Compiling what stories to tell and where to start is usually the hardest part since many people have an abundance of anecdotes but can get them confused at times.

 

To prevent yourself from getting overwhelmed, it is important to start with an outline or a few bullet points detailing what you want to say. This means that your stories should have these three parts:

  • When your son was young
  • Your son's adolescence
  • The years he grew up

 

Now that these have been broken down into these simple categories, sit down and jot down any stories you can remember from each period of his life. Pick out which stories you think are truly meaningful and include details about the kind of man he has grown up to be.

 

Lastly, don't forget to mention a few of his wonderful qualities that make him an amazing husband and father!

Toast by father of the groom to son

 These lines can give you an idea.

Now, as I stand here today, watching [son's name] marry the love of his life, [bride's name], I can hardly believe how quickly time has flown by. It seems like only yesterday that he was a little boy, and now he is a grown man, starting a family of his own. I am so proud of the person he has become and I know that he will make a wonderful husband.

 

Talk About The Bride Or Your Future Daughter-In-Law Too

It doesn't matter whether you're fond of your daughter-in-law or not, it's important to mention some noteworthy characteristics during the wedding speech.  If you know her well, you should make sure to highlight her attributes that make her a good match for your son.

 

Even if there is a less than favorable opinion of the bride, you can still focus on her best attributes or give a general description without being too specific.

 

You may this example to help you write something brief about her.

So, to [bride's name], I want to say that you have my blessing, my love and my support. And to my son, [son's name], I want to say that I love you and am so proud of the person you have become. May your marriage be filled with love and happiness, and may you have a lifetime of blessings.

 

"When my son first introduced me to [daughter-in-law's name], it was as if a ray of sunshine had burst into my life. Her warmth and kind-heartedness radiated like the sun's rays and immediately made everyone around her feel at ease. Her heart, like a blooming flower, was full of love and compassion.

 

[Daughter-in-law's name] was a pearl among the oysters, not only beautiful on the outside but also possessing a sharp and brilliant mind. Her wit was sharper than a razor's edge, always ready with a quip to lighten the mood in any situation.

Father of the groom wedding speech

She was a force to be reckoned with, her determination and hard work were admirable. She brought with her an effervescence that was impossible to ignore, and I had no doubt that she would be a great partner for my son.

 

I am blessed to have [daughter-in-law's name] in our lives and in our family. She brought with her a new energy, a new perspective, and a whole lot of love. I eagerly anticipate to see what the future holds for the two of them and am confident that their union will be like a ever-blooming garden, forever flourishing with love and happiness."

 

 

Finally, let’s look at…

 

How To Write Then Closing Remarks Of Your Father of the Groom Speech

 

Want to know how to end your speech or presentation in an impactful way? Here are a few tips to help you finish off on a strong note.

 

First, you can end with basic father of the groom wedding toast like this one.

Here’s an example below:

‘’As I conclude my speech, I would like to leave you with a final thought that will linger in your mind long after the celebrations are over. Just like a symphony, the union of my son and [daughter-in-law's name] is the coming together of different melodies, rhythms, and beats to create a harmonious whole.

6 

Like a stanza in a poem, their love story has its own unique rhythm and flow, but when combined with the love stories of all the other couples here today, it creates a beautiful and moving piece of literature.

As they embark on this new chapter in their lives, may their love continue to flourish and deepen like a crescendo in a symphony, reaching new heights of joy and happiness.

Let us raise our glasses in a toast, to the newlyweds, may their love be like a symphony, ever-evolving, and forever beautiful.

 

If that won't suffice, you can copy what this funny dad did this, if you have a great voice.

 

 

Second, finish off your wedding speech by presenting the happy couple with an amazing gift. A couple had a very wild dream. They fantasized about bringing a chimpanzee to their wedding. Really?

When the father of the groom realized that, that wasn't going to happen, he gifted them a chimpanzee toy and it was so funny when the groom told that story after his father-in-law gave them a surprise gift.

 

Alternatively, you could present them with something special that will last for years to come. You may consider gifting something timeless such as framing the advice part of your wedding speech. Ultimately, it is up to your discretion - select whatever you think is best!

 

If you so desire to copy that funny father, you may start with these words before you give a gift to the couple.

 

“Now , I would like to present the newlyweds with a gift that I believe will be treasured for many years to come. I have chosen a beautiful set of custom-made wedding bands, crafted from the finest materials, to symbolize the eternal nature of their love. These bands are not only a symbol of their love but also a tangible reminder of the special day they have shared with their loved ones.

I hope that these bands will be worn with pride, and that they will serve as a constant reminder of the commitment and love they have made to each other. May they always be a symbol of their love, loyalty and devotion to one another, and may they wear them with as much love and joy as they have for each other.”

 

Third, you can share words of wisdom from a father to his son about marriage. Here is an example.

“As I stand here today, watching my son marry the love of his life, I can't help but reflect on my own marriage and the lessons I've learned along the way. I would like to offer a few words of advice to my son as he begins this new chapter in his life.

 

First, always remember to communicate openly and honestly with each other. Communication is the foundation of any strong relationship and it's important to always make time to listen and understand each other's perspectives.

 

Second, always make time for each other. Life can get busy and hectic, but it's important to make sure that your relationship is a priority. Make sure to set aside time for date nights, weekend getaways, and just simply spending quality time together.

 

Third, always be willing to forgive and be forgiving. No one is perfect and mistakes will be made, but it's important to always be willing to forgive and move forward.

 

Always remember the reasons why you fell in love and why you decided to get married. Keep that love and passion alive, and never take each other for granted. Marriage is a journey, and it's important to enjoy the ride and make the most of every moment together.

 

I am confident that if my son and his wife keep these things in mind, they will have a strong and loving marriage just like mine.”

How about using this funny marriage advice instead? 

You are husband and wife. Forever starts now. Let me tell you…forever can feel like a long time some days, but others it will seem to be flying by. So don’t ever take each other for granted, always say I love you every chance you get, and give each other room to grow.

It also helps if you have your own tv’s. And if you can, also have your own bathrooms. That will help immensely.

And on those days, when forever means spending a Saturday afternoon in Walmart, shopping for housewares with an empty stomach, remember how excited you were today. 

While that excitement will dim sometimes (especially at Walmart on a Saturday afternoon!) the love you have for one another will not. Cling to it, and cling to each other, and you will be blessed.

All too soon, he’s grown into a fine young man and found the love of his life. He’s getting married and I am sure he’s asked you to make a speech at his wedding. What an honor!

 

If you hate being in the public eye, that will be very terrifying and leave you with a very uncomfortable feeling. Well, if you are a pretty confident speaker, you might decide to write your speech.  But it might not be well-received because wedding speeches are quite different from the others out there.

 

In the next few lines, I am going to share with you what really goes into writing a great father of the groom speech toast so you can figure out how to write a heartfelt father of the groom toast for your son and daughter-in-law without trying so hard.

 

I am always amazed whenever I read notes of panic-stricken dads who have run out of words or don’t know what to say. I always attribute that dilemma to not preparing well enough before they speak.  

Father of the groom wedding toast

If you really want to strike a chord with the guests, you need to mentally prepare before you even sit down to write your wedding toast.

 

Preparing mentally helps you develop a strong sense of self, helps you to overcome self- doubts, and boost your self- confidence so you can deliver the best ever father of the groom speech or toast.

 

When it comes to delivering your speech with confidence and clarity, mental preparation always precedes the actual performance.  As you are very much aware, all goals begin in our heads as dreams, wishes and ambitions. So, it is with your father of the groom toast.

 

Here are two proven ways to mentally prepare yourself for a great performance.

 

First, watch a few video clips of how amazing father of the groom speeches or toasts are delivered. Youtube.com has several of such video clips. Taking time out to watch a few of these short films can give you a fair idea of the stuff great toasts are made of.  This is what I recommend you do right now. Click on any of the videos below and study them briefly.

 

Here you go:

 

Father of the groom speech video#1

 

 


Father of the groom toast video# 2

 

 

Did you enjoy listening to both clips? I did find both entertaining and inspiring.  Did you learn a thing or two from watching both clips? Any takeaway from viewing them?  

 

Second, father of the groom speech samples/templates are also indispensable tools that can help you mesh your exact thoughts and emotions together into a very lovely toast.  There are several examples online you can learn from. But here’s the thing. Most of the samples you will find have lost its appeal because they have been copied verbatim and used by several speech givers.

 

Of course, you can use them as inspiration to help you create your own train of thoughts. I have a good example for you. But I am not going to share it in its entirety.  Just bit and pieces of it sprinkled with helpful comments.

 

Third, you should come up with an outline for your father of the groom wedding toast and then work into your message the right stuff.  The most common order in outlines usually follows this format although there are some really creative ones I have seen.

 

The layout works best if you really have no idea of where to start from.

  • Greetings
  • Short self-introduction
  • Thank your guests and other personalities
  • Start your speech
  • Talk about your son
  • Talk about your daughter-in-law
  • Talk about the bride and groom
  • End with a bit of marriage advice or best wishes
  • End with a toast

Now, let’s take it one step at a time. Let’s first begin with the first idea:

 

Writing Idea#1: Greetings

This is a standard wedding etiquette and the easiest part of the speech to write. So, I won’t go into much detail at this time.

 

Writing Idea#2: Short-Self Introduction

Most fathers don’t do this due to the erroneous impression that the guests might know who they are. Even if you have been introduced by the emcee, you still should let everyone know who you are and your relationship to the bride and groom.

 

Here’s a brief example.

Hello everyone! I am Dan, Steve’s dad. I want to say that I’m very proud of him and Alice who I love like a daughter. They have put together a wonderful celebration today and rekindled our joy for living in these hard times. I want to thank them for bringing us together.

 

Writing Idea # 3: Thank your guests and other personalities

Simply thanking the guests for coming to celebrate with you endears you to your audience in many ways more than you can ever imagine. 

Your son has come thus far in life as a result of the contribution of family and friends and some other people. So it makes sense to show appreciation for being there for you over the years.

If you have a large family who played an immense role in your son’s life, then, you can jot down their names and express appreciation to them in whichever way you can.

 

Here’s an example by a father to his son’s mom for raising him when he wasn’t around.

 

Bernadette, I know it was hard being a single mom. I hoped that I was some help. Know that all of us look at you with awe and inspiration. You raised an amazing young man and you’ll forever be in my debts. Please let’s give her a round of applause for that.

 

Here’s an example by a father to his parents or son’s grandparents.

First and foremost, let me say a big thank you to my mother Mamaw for standing by me through the good times and bad. She was like a second mother to Steve and she did everything in her power to make life easier for me and reduce my stress during my tough times. She’s no longer with us but I know she’s looking down at us

and is so proud of who her grandson has become.

A special thanks go to my father Papaw who was and still is our handyman, our advisor, and my pillar or strength and our source of laughter. He and mom both provided Steve with great role-models and helped them grow up to be well-adjusted.

Can you write down the names of person you wish to thank? Just jot them down.

 

Writing idea #4:  Starting Your Speech

After you have expressed gratitude to family and friends, you have to start with some captivating remarks to break the ice.

You can start with one or more of the following ideas:

  • Start with a joke or a hilarious comment….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!

  • If your son’s birthday coincides with his wedding day, then you may ask the wedding guests to sing a happy birthday song for him. However, you can personalize it a bit to make it more entertaining. Here’s an example to illustrate this point.

Happy birthday to you

Happy birthday to you

How old are you now?

How old are you now?

How old are you now?

Response by son:

I am so glad that you asked me that

But I am not going to tell you now because you didn’t bring me any birthday gift!

You came with your wedding gifts but not birthday gifts

Hmm….Thank you for the birthday song anyway

Well, If you want to know my age, just ask my dad because he’s the one who brought this up….else I won’t have told you because today is my wedding day.

 

Did you see I changed the lyrics here and there to suit the occasion? You can give it a try and practice it out loud with your son if he’s lucky to have his birthday and wedding date on a particular weekend. If you do it well, your message might go viral.

  • If you are an emotional person or want to start your speech with a quote about fatherhood or any other quote about marriage.
  • You may relive memories of when your son was born at the hospital if it has a fascinating twist to it. I remember working with a man who said he was so excited about his child’s arrival that he forgot where he’d parked his car when the announcer asked him to park well to make way for someone to move his car. Stories like that are always heartwarming and make great speeches what they are.
  • You can always start with a song if you are a gifted musician. This father of the groom certainly made all the difference at his son’s wedding.

 

 

  • You can decide to give joint parents of the groom speech by speaking in turns.

 

Now, let’s get to the next point.

 

Writing idea #5:  Talk about Your Son

There are so many things you can write about when you are weaving a story about your son. To make things a little bit easier, you should decide if you just want to talk about childhood, teenage years or adulthood.

Alternatively, you can choose one or more of his best character traits, build a story with them, and explain why those qualities will help him weather the storms of marriage.

How to write a father of the groom toast

Here’s an example about how to talk about your son

 

Steve was a happy child, curious but shy, always fun and loved parties even as a toddler!

He grew to be independent, but still loved parties especially the ones he threw herself! And concerts.”

 

He also persevered no matter the odds. You know he tried so hard before passing his driving test, right? While that may give you pause before letting him behind the wheel of your car, it should say that you would want him by your side if you need tenacity and undying faith to win the day!

When he first entered Uni, we were warned that he would get homesick and we should remain strong and not let him get to us. Yeah, well I failed at that test.  He had already made friends though, so they were taking stuff out of my car as fast as I was putting stuff in! But we did eventually get hIM packed and home. He re-entered another Uni the following semester, but again after a day he called to tell me that he’s going out with this girl.

Knowing who my son is, I doubted if he meant it. As the days went by, he kept talking about his friend and I got so curious. At that point, I knew this was getting serious. Lo and behold, his nameless friend came to visit and I could tell right away why he so much adored Stephanie.

 

Writing idea #6:  Write about Your Daughter-In-Law

To make sure your speech isn’t lopsided; you should talk briefly about your new daughter-in-law. You can write about how you felt when you first met her, the great qualities you think that will help make her an amazing wife and mom, and thank her parents for welcoming your son into their family.

 

Here’s an example to illustrate my points.

I’m sorry, I haven’t talked much about

Janet. But I will say this. I was absolutely

clueless when it came to my son’s love life.

I met her at “Remember the 27” at West

Chester. I thought she was lovely and

charming and – I swear – a good friend to Steve . Lynn had to tell me that my son was

in love with this girl.

Writing idea #7:  Talk About The Bride and Groom

You can write about how the bride complements your son and why they are a perfect match for the journey of marriage.

 

Writing idea # 8:  End with A Bit of Marriage or Best Wishes

As the father of the groom, everyone will be counting on you to deliver some words of wisdom. If you have been married for a long time, you can tap into that reservoir of marriage wisdom and share your personal insights with the couple about what makes a good marriage.

Here’s an example to buttress this point.

 

Finally, as for advice, the only thing I can say is

never take each other for granted. Don’t hold

grudges, forget any disagreement quickly, but

never forget the good times. When you look at

your hand and see that ring, remember the

promise you made to get it. Happily ever after

starts now. And I hope you two have a blessed

and prosperous life together.

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.

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.’’

Ok, let’s cut to the chase.

 

There is this quote I have always liked that goes like this” There is no love on earth greater than that of a father for his son.”

 

If you think deeply about that quote, you will come to understand that a father’s love is as essential as a mother’s love because when a father truly loves and cares for his children, they end up emulating that sacrificial love which would ultimately help them become very responsible adults.

 

I know you are a loving father because your strong love and abiding support has brought your son this far. On his wedding day,  you have to tell your friends and loved ones how the journey has been like all these years.

 

Guess what? Courtesy, a memorable father of the groom wedding speech, you can let everyone know how your friendship with your son has been like at the wedding reception or  at the rehearsal dinner night.

 

I don’t know about you. But most fathers get nervous like a deer in the headlights and someone like one too when they are asked by their sons to say some brief remarks about them when they are getting married to the love of their lives.

 

Out of frustration and anxiety, some come to the show unprepared and it comes as no surprise that most father of the groom wedding speeches you hear are so boring.

 

Wedding speech from dad to his son

 

When Steve was asked by his son, he was utterly paralyzed with fear because he didn’t have the gift of words. Besides, he was a very horrible public speaker and he knew for sure he was going to let his son down.

Yet, he stunned everyone by delivering a short and sweet father of the groom wedding speech toast.

 

Wondering how this happened?  He read something similar to the father of the groom speech example below and applied the same tips on this webpage and came up with this short wedding toast for his son.

 

Father of the Groom Wedding Speech Example/Template

Good evening and welcome everyone!

I’m Steve, father of the groom.

 

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.

 

Even though, today is one of the best days of my life, I always like to think the day Tim was born is the best day of my life.

On that beautiful day, John came into my life and changed our lives forever.

He was such an easy baby to care for, he totally spoiled me!

So quickly, he outgrew my laps into an adorable little boy and I was very excited to see where life would take him.

 

 

As a little boy, he loved to read. When he was very young, he read The Boxcar Children series again and again, especially the first one until he memorized the first chapter.

 

I knew at that time that was a double edged sword. I knew he would remember everything, the good and the not so good. I suggest, from this day forward you two remember the good, make wonderful memories and don't allow the little stuff get in the way.

Growing up, he played soccer for a while.

 

 

But, he was a big fan of the Red Barron, and helicopters in particular! From when he was about seven years old, Tim loved helicopters and seeing one fly across where we lived always brought warm smiles to his face.

At school, every piece of written work and every project had to do with helicopters.

 

Even during sewing class, John made a quilt with an appliqued helicopter on it!

 

Luckily for him, he got the chance to volunteer at the helipad when he was 12 years old.

I remember how he would go there once a week after school to help put around the base, get to know the pilots like best friends, clean the helicopter and sometimes go with them on jobs!

 

While volunteering there, those pilots were huge role models to him and that really reignited his passion fuelled his childhood dream and passion of being a pilot.

 

By the way, one of those great pilots is here with us tonight and we owe him a great deal of gratitude for supporting John all these years.

Where’s Lauren please? Can you be up on your feet so we all see you? Yeah! That’s Tim’s friend and role model!

There are also memories of Tim and his friends having fun and spending great time with us.

How to write a wedding speech for my son and daughter in law

 

While he enjoyed mountain biking and playing the piano, he was really into drumming.

 

Tim’s drumming instructor was a great drummer who once taught drumming to Katha and once said John was the best student he ever had.

 

And yes, he was right because my son got so good playing drums in the local band for a number of years as well as in his school band.

 

He got as high as he could in the regional school’s band he played in and as you can imagine, that made us so proud! Even though, he’s no longer playing drums due to his flying career and all that, his drum kit still lives in our house and anytime he comes around, we can’t help but put on our dancing shoes!

 

But, what I really love about John is his love for people.  His act of kindness is so contagious. It speaks right to the heart and makes you a much better person.  He’s such an amazing person and I am very confident his warm personality will be seen in his own children.

 

John,your mom and I are immensely proud of who you have become. For all these years, you’ve been the pillar of my life.  From this moment on, you have another wonderful woman to support you and I am beyond excited for you both.

 

Britt is beautiful, adorable, strong, determined, responsible, well-organized, loving, focused, supportive and family-oriented and my heart is filled with joy to see them both in love.

 

We love you both and we forward to watching you build your lives together in love and harmony.

 

But, know that marriage has its high and low moments.

 

So, put each other first in everything you do and you will make it through life together.

May your love be strong and bright,
May your life be filled with light,
May all your dreams come true,
Wishing all the best things in life for you two!

Great speech, right? What did you learn from this sample/template that you think you can add to your own wedding speech for your son?

 

There are nuggets of insights you can infuse into your wedding toast and I am going to break down the above example down into several parts so you can get a clear idea of what went into writing that father of the groom wedding speech sample or template.

 

So, please put everything aside and give a few minutes of your precious time as I walk you through everything you need to know so you can write the best ever wedding speech for your son and daughter in law.  

 

Have you ever wondered why some wedding speakers start on a bright note while several others struggle to even garner attention of the wedding attendees even if it’s a very small crowd? The difference lies in the way the opening remarks or lines are made and the effect the speaker intends to achieve.

 

 

The wedding guests know instinctively that most father of the groom toasts are not so great so they assume that you are simply going to say a few stories about your son like they hear at most wedding receptions or rehearsal dinner night.  But yours can be a hit if you start off by making your introductory remarks very touching.

 

 

Well, your introduction has two sides of the same coin and here is where you can kill two birds with a single stone.

The first bird you can easily kill here is to write a standard introduction as you saw above:

 

Here you go:

 

Good evening and welcome everyone!

I’m Steve, father of the groom.

 

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.

 

Action Tip:

Go grab your pen and paper or since you are right in front of your keyword, write or type somewhere names of people who have been a huge blessing in your son’s life and include why you are thanking them.

 

People and personalities like:

  • Your wife
  • The groom’s mom
  • Your neighbors/your coaches and teachers
  • Parents of the bride
  • His siblings, aunts, uncles,
  • His grandma and grandpa
  • As well as those who couldn’t attend the wedding.

 

That’s not all, if you scroll up and re-look at the example, you will notice that you can use the same stone to kill another bird so to speak and I call this ‘’bird’’: introductory remarks part ''b'' Wedding toast for my son and bride

Here’s an extract:

 

Even though, today is one of the best days of my life, I always like to think the day Tim was born is the best day of my life. On that beautiful day, John came into my life and changed our lives forever.

 

When you get to this point, your father of the groom speech has to give your listeners a reason to listen to you and build up excitement and anticipation for the remainder of your wedding speech.

 

So, it's always best to start with a bang and any of these guidelines and tips can work out.

 

First, you can start off with a little story prior that occurred prior to his birth. 

 

Here’s a short  example

 

It was in the summer of the year 2000 when Dan was born. Mike was born at the half time of the Dallas and Giant’s game to which I was supposed to be at.

 

Dan was born at the halftime of the Giants and Dallas game some 30 plus years ago. His mother’s water broke during the night and I totally panicked.

 

I did some quick reading and learned labor was imminent. So as his mother called the doctor and showered I proceeded to prepare his bedroom. In his bedroom were all the Christmas presents still in bags scattered about that we bought early for our family members. In my haste I threw them all in the dumpster…

 

Did you see how I wrote that with a little story?

 

Second, you can walk down memory lane and recount how you felt when you got first married to the groom’s mother.

 

Third, you can start off with a poignant or touching note with one or more of these quotes.

 

  • You don’t raise heroes, you raise sons, and if you treat them like sons, they’ll turn out to be heroes, even if it’s just in your eyes.” – Walter M. Schirra, Jr

 

 

  • “It was my father who taught me to value myself. He told me that I was uncommonly beautiful and that I was the most precious thing in his life.” – Dawn French
  • “The bond between a father and a son is a true friendship no one can ever break.’’

 

 

Okay, let’s see how we can use the last quote:  ’’ The bond between a father and a son is a true friendship no one can ever break. ‘’   to start with a bang!

 

 

Tonight’s joyful celebration of love is one of

the beautiful moments when it just feels so

great to be a father.

 

Sam is our middle child and second

son. His marriage to Sabrina brings backvery fond memories of all the great

moments we’ve spent together since he

came into our lives 30 years and I am thankful for the friendship  I have developed with my son all these years.

 

Did you notice how I included the word ‘’friendship’’’ in that short extract?  That's exactly how it should be.

Now, let’s see how you can write

 

The Content or Order or Structure of Your Father of the Groom Wedding Speech

 

The content is the most essential part of your speech but most fathers struggle to gather their thoughts together because it’s not so easy to distil years of memories into a brief story.

 

Most fathers write to me and express worry that they have an idea of what to write but can’t organize their thoughts coherently.

 

I know that’s a huge problem for most fathers of the grooms and if you are wondering how you can easily come up with great ideas for this part of your speech, then I have good news for you!

 

Here are simple steps to help you plan and organize the content of your wedding speech so you don’t pull your hair out.

 

First, create a structure for the flow of your presentation. To do that, you first have to decide what aspect of your story you want your delivery to dwell on.

 

Do you want your storyline to flow from when your son came into the picture until you met your daughter-in-law?

If so, then you have to jot down memorable events you have shared together and just use one or two stories for your wedding toast.

 

Again, you may want to use a memorable story from your boy’s childhood or his teenage years.

In recent times, I have seen instances where the father of the groom simply brought out stories involving the bride and groom and highlighted what makes them unique or how they complement each other.

 

This always works if you want to simply wing it or come up with a very short father of the groom speech.

 

Here’s an example.

In 2008, we moved here from the Czech Republic and the transition was so hard for us, especially our son.

 

He had to learn a foreign language so he could thrive in his new environment. In the process, he found his ‘’stress buster‘’ Judy who encouraged and supported her to grow and fit in like a local. Over the years, I have seen their love grow. They both love the outdoors. But they hate it when….

 

Did you see how I did that? That’s exactly how to get the good stories pouring out from your brain.

 

So, this is what I want you to do now.

 

Just relax and watch these videos to get an idea of how great father of the groom wedding toasts are made. As you watch these videos, please grab your pen and jot down memories that come to you and decide which one you wish to use for the content of your father of the groom wedding speech.

Now, let us see…

 

How You Can Easily Write a Great Ending For Your Son’s Wedding Toast

 

This part of your toast should be fairly easy to write but it needs to pack a punch since it’s like your favorite take home meal.

 

If your concluding remarks strike the right chord with the wedding guests, they would not only remember what you said but also hold you in great esteem as an orator even if you are not really one.

 

By the way, you can use or more of the following ideas to wrap up on a memorable note.

 

First, you may share a small piece of marriage advice as seen right below from the dad of the groom wedding toast template above.

‘’ We love you both and we forward to watching you build your lives together in love and harmony.

 

But, know that marriage has its high and low moments.

 

So, put each other first in everything you do and you will make it through life together.

May your love be strong and bright,
May your life be filled with light,
May all your dreams come true,
Wishing all the best things in life for you two!
‘’

 

Second, if for some reason, you don’t want to share some pieces of advice, you may simply use any of the following well-wishes.

  1. My heart is filled with joy today to see you so happy and in love! Congratulations to the happy couple on their wedding day
  1. May you love happily ever after. Wishing you both a beautiful life as husband and wife. May your years together be full of love, happiness and blessings.
  2. As you wed today, I wish you to enjoy the kind of love that grows and knows no end. May your married life be an inspiration to all the couples!

 

Third, if you a religious person or a deeply committed Christian, you can use any of the following scriptures to write a faith-based message and share it with the couple if they are Christians.

a. Proverbs 31:10-12 ESV

An excellent wife who can find? She is far more precious than jewels. The heart of her husband trusts in her, and he will have no lack of gain. She does him good, and not harm, all the days of her life.

b. Proverbs 18: 22

The man who finds a wife finds a treasure, and he receives favor from the LORD.

c. 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.

Fourth, you may sing to wrap up by  using the lyrics of a well-known song most of the wedding guests can sing along.

Has This Ever Happened to you?

 

Life can sometimes be so unfair. Just three years after Martha had gotten married; she lost his husband to cancer, leaving her to care for their one year old baby boy all by herself.

When her son Mark turned 7 years old, his mom started dating David and in about a year after meeting her, they got engaged to be married.

 

Two years after their engagement, they finally got married and were so excited to meld their lives together.

What was especially touching on their wedding day was when David said in his vows that he would love and take good care of Little Mark as his own.

Mark was true to his promises as he kept them in his heart and anyone could tell by the love and affection he showed his step- son that he had a very special place in his heart.

Once, the boy was so sick to the point of death that he quit his job to take care of the growing boy, leaving the mom as the sole bread winner of the family.

 

Her mom’s take-home pay was three times that of her husband’s. After helping him through school, Mark was about to get to university and the night before he left off for school; David looked him straight in the eye and said:

‘’ Mark, it’s a blessing to be in your life. You’ve always made us proud but you still have a lot to go for.  Put in the work and the sky will actually be your starting point and not where you end’’

 

That wise counsel stayed with him and he worked so hard that he graduated with distinction and got a great job with great pay.

 

Three years after leaving school, he decided to get married to his college sweet heart and asked his dad to give a sweet father of the groom wedding speech or toast.  What better way of letting his family, friends and loved ones know what the journey of life had been like for the three of them?

 

Step father of the groom speech tips

 

David was an accomplished public speaker and thought it would be a piece of cake. But he was so wrong.

 

He loved his son so much and wanted to make sure he left nothing to chance. So, he spent close to two months preparing for what he felt was the most important speech of his life.

He managed to come up with something but he felt he needed that extra touch to make it come fully alive.

 

He reached out to us and we co-wrote the father of the groom wedding speech below. Please read through it very carefully.

 

Step-Father of the Groom Speech or Toast Example

 

Hello, good evening and welcome everyone!

For those of you who don’t know me, my name is Stephen and I am Mark’s proud dad and best man.

 

It gives Barbara and me great joy to see the smiling faces of all the friends and family who have come from near and far to share Mark and Amanda's special day.  Thank you all so much for coming. 

 

When Mark asked me to be his best man, I felt surprised that he chose me because I thought that it could have been one of his friends.

 

But it’s been such fun to be the unofficial personal assistant of this handsome young man. I first saw Mark when his moved to my hometown from where she used to work. The first time I saw him, he was flying his kite and I remember saying to myself, his father must be a proud dad because of his good looks and infections personality.

 

As fate would have it, I ended up becoming his dad when he was nine years old.

 

Mark was always a very lively and kind child who really loved being with his big sisters. He looked out for them and was such a thorn in the flesh of boys who picked on his sisters.

 

 

Mark did play golf when he was about eleven years old. Once, I got a call at work from his mother frantically saying that he had been in the yard swinging his driver and his younger sister Amy accidentally walked into it and hit her in the nose.

 

I could hear the frantic feeling in my wife's voice and I could hear Amy crying in the background and I could hear Mark saying, ‘’Mom, it wasn't my driver, it was my Three-wood. ‘’

 

Well, Amy ended up with a slightly crooked nose that looks very cute to this day. Where’s my daughter? Yeah, just look at her nose if you doubt it. Sorry about that Amy!

 

Growing up, Mark was fun to be around and there was nothing quite like the time we spent together on the golf course.

 

Mark and I played together as a team in the father-son tournament and won our flight.  He was just 13 years old, but he played very well and his dad played crappy, but we still won due to his impressive performance on the course. However, Mark couldn’t get out of bed for a week because he was so tired from carrying me for three days.

 

As he grew older, he never lost his passion for the game by working hard to improve every single part of it for the better and he made me so proud by graduating from the golf Academy and began his career in the golf industry!

 

Mark, we are so proud of you and how far you’ve come down the road of life. You’re one of our lives greatest gifts and I must say that being your parents has been without a doubt, a great source of pride, joy, and inspiration.

 

On this special day of your life, we want you to know how precious you’re to us and I want to let you that I will forever cherish all the great moments we’ve spent with you, (particularly our time on the golf course.)

 

We are beyond ecstatic that you’ve found a truly beautiful woman to marry and we are very confident that she will help bring out the very best in you.  When someone loves you, you can simply tell by the way they treat you right. From the time, we’ve known Amanda, we’ve seen in so many ways how she loves and looks out for Mark.

 

Amanda, I remember first meeting you when we went to dinner at the restaurant where you both were working and we knew you were so special to him when he introduced you to us.  You simply have no idea of the immense joy in our hearts because our son has found you. 

 

Mark and Amanda, I really love the fact you both shared values and interests (like your commitment to family traditions) because couples with shared values often flourish beautifully.

 

Nevertheless, you still have to be there for each other in good times and the bad. So, as you embark on this journey of love, always love, respect, support and put each other first in whatever you do and you will make memories every step of the way.

 

We love you both could not be more proud of your decision to build your lives together.  You both have it takes and I do know for sure that the best years of your life together is yet to be.  Let me assure you that you can always count on us for support in everything you do.     God bless you both.

When Stephen’s speech was over, several people came up to congratulate him warmly for being a very loving father.

A visibly excited friend shook him and said

‘’ I never thought you could pull this one this well since you are known for corporate speeches!’’

I do know for sure that by now you might be wondering how you can write a heartfelt father of the groom wedding speech like he did.

 

This is How To Write Your Father of the Groom Wedding Speech

 

It’s as easy as watching your favorite TV program. Yet, the overwhelming majority of fathers really struggle to connect the dots together and their wedding speeches end up not being what they initially envisioned.

 

There are several reasons for this. You see, most fathers of grooms fail to put on a remarkable show on their son’s wedding day because they don’t put in their all effort and just go on with life as usual only to squeeze some time to cobble something together when time for the wedding is so, so close.

 

But that shouldn’t be the case at all if you want to make your son proud.

You will save yourself time and stress if you prepare and plan ahead of time, even if you have a few days to your son’s wedding day. 

 

This Is What I Recommend That You Do Before You Even Jot Down Your Ideas.

 

First, you have to believe you are going to excel even if you are damn nervous about speaking in front of your family and friends or think you are not cut out for this public speaking thing which sometimes seem to terrify even the most experienced speakers.

 

As you do that, you will be building your self-esteem by pushing yourself out of your comfort zone. That, in essence, is how to master your emotions and mentally prepare yourself for your father of the groom speech toast.

I have written extensively about how to calm your nerves here and there.

 

Second, you have to look for the right words and ideas to help you write your father’s wedding toast for your son.

 

You can get those ideas from two sources:

  • Father of the groom speech examples…as we have seen above
  • Videos about fathers giving speeches at their step-son’s wedding

 

Now, let us see how they complement each other.

To write the first (1), you have to watch a couple of videos to get a clear idea of what a father of the groom toast is like.

 

Action Tip: Go grab your pen and journal and jot down ideas you think you can use in your script as you watch these short video clips on YouTube.

 

Father of the groom speech toast: Video #1

 

 

Father of the groom wedding speech toast: Video # 2

 

 

I hope you enjoyed both videos and learned a thing or two from watching them. Now, watch me closely as I show you how you can use that written template above to help you write a sweet speech at your son’s wedding.

 

Are you ready to spring into action? If you are all set, I am going to break that example down bit by bit so you can get an idea of what goes into writing a memorable father of the groom wedding speech toast that will get you tons of compliments, days even after the wedding bells have stopped chiming.

 

First, let’s look at how to write a great introduction that will hook in your listeners. Let’s see this excerpted snippet to help us accomplish this task.

 

 

Here you go:

‘’ Hello, good evening and welcome everyone!

For those of you who don’t know me, my name is Stephen and I am Mark’s proud dad and best man.

It gives Barbara and me great joy to see the smiling faces of all the friends and family who have come from near and far to share Andrew and Amanda's special day.  Thank you all so much for coming.  When Austin asked me to be his best man…’’

 

 

My comments/suggestions: The introduction is the easiest part to write because it basically comprises of a short self-introduction and expression of gratitude to certain individuals like:

  • The mother of the groom. If she’s deceased, you may pay a special tribute to her if she played a key role in your son’s upbringing.
  • Your own relatives and loved ones
  • Your friends, neighbors, the groom’s siblings, etc.
  • Don’t forget to acknowledge the presence of the bride’s parents and say something sincere about them.
  • You also have to thank the wedding guests for coming from far and near to grace the occasion.

 

Action Tip: Using that sample as a guide, jot down the names of people you would like to mention and state why you are thanking them.

 

Have you done just that? Ok, we still have some rivers to cross so to speak. Your introductory remarks should capture the attention of the wedding guests from the very beginning and put them in the mood for the remainder of your presentation.

 

There are several ways of going about this and I want to share with you some proven tips to help you write a very engaging intro so you can win the love and admiration of your audience.

 

Wedding speech for my step son and daughter-in-law

 

First, if you are lucky to be your son’s best man, then you can proudly let everyone know about this and how you felt when he asked you to be his right hand man as you saw at the start of the speech we looked at earlier.

 

Second, if the wedding party attendees don’t know you are the groom’s step father, you might want to keep it a secret if you are a big loving family. However, if there are no skeletons in your closet, you can share how you felt when your step son first came into your life. Stories can help you do justice to this.

 

Here’s a very short example

 

Dan, being a military brat, was in Hawaii until he was three years old. So, I didn’t get to meet him until then. I was able to lay eyes on him when he showed up in Arkansas with my wife with a pacifier in his mouth.

 

When I saw him, he was the most adorable little boy I had ever seen and more than anything, I wanted to snatch him up and give him the biggest hug ever.

 

But he wanted absolutely nothing to do with me because he was so scared of strangers, particularly bald old men like yours truly.

 

So, I came up with a plan to win the attention and trust of my new friend. Guess what I found? To my delight, I discovered that he loved to drink milk every night before he dozed off.

 

On his fourth birthday, I promised him that I was going to stock the refrigerator with every kind of milk he had in mind if he could spell his own name in under a minute which he obliged….

Djdjdj

 

Did you notice how I weaved in that story? Don’t you think this hilarious anecdote will perk up the ears of everyone at the wedding reception or rehearsal dinner night?  You be the judge.

 

Third, if you want to strike a sentimental tone, you can kick off with a love or marriage quote. Here are some good ones you can spiff up your wedding speech with.

  1. Nothing compares with joy of finding true love because once you do, your heart is complete.
  1. We don’t marry the person we can live with. But rather the person we can’t live without.
  1. A man becomes his best self when he starts the next chapter of his life with the lady his hearts truly beats for
  1. Love is not something you find. Love is something that finds you- Tony Robbins
  1. The greatest happiness in life is to love and be loved in return

 

Can you use any of those lines to come up with a very engaging introduction or you still need my help?

 

Ok, I am going to use quote c to illustrate. Again, let’s see how we can make the best out of it.

 

A very wise man once said that a man becomes his best self when he starts the next chapter of his life with the lady his hearts truly beats for. That’s so true because I have never seen my son this happy. If you have any doubts, just look at the radiant joy in his eyes.

 

Ok, let’s move on to second part of our analysis:

 

How To Write Your Wedding Speech For Your Son and Bride

 

Let’s get started by looking at parts of the content of that example briefly so we can steer ‘’the ship to safe waters. ‘’

 

Here you go:

‘’ In a flash, our bundle of blessings grew up into a very lively and kind child who really loved being with his big sisters and looked out for them because he was such a thorn in the flesh of boys who picked on his sisters.

 

Once, I got a call at work from his mother frantically saying that he had been in the yard swinging his driver and his younger sister Amy…‘’

 

It’s fairly easy to write the body of the speech. But what I have observed is that most fathers really struggle when it comes to distilling years of memories into a very short story and often end up writing stuff that shouldn’t have been said at all in the first place.

To make this aspect of the writing process a breeze, there are a couple of ideas you can employ to get it right.

 

First, you have to decide what speech style and tone you want to dwell on. So, please write down the effect you want your speech to achieve. Do you want to sound funny, sentimental or mushy, a narrative, rhythmic or even poetic?

I must emphasize that it is possible to combine two or more speech styles if you are truly gifted with words.

 

Second, you also have to decide on a story line. Starting from when your son first came into your life, please do a little brainstorming and come up with stories you think can help you put your step father of the groom speech toast together in a chronological order.

 

Questions like these can prove useful:

  • What was he like when he was a very little boy?
  • What was he like when he was growing up?
  • What behavior did he exhibit when he got to his teens? Please comment about his good side and never bring up the bad ones unless it has a funny twist to it or it ultimately helped him learn a valuable lesson that made him a much better person
  • You can also write about his accomplishments in school and beyond if has some connection with who he is and what he brings to the marriage.
  • You can mention how you felt when he introduced his bride to you.
  • Talk about the bride and say sincerely why you think she’s going to be an amazing wife and mom

 

 

Third, create an outline or structure for your father of the groom speech toast so you can figure out the most essential parts of your story outline or wedding speech. For example, you can use the structure below to simply fill in the gaps and put your thoughts together.

 

Intro of your speech---fill in with the details we saw earlier about writing a great introduction

Body of your speech---fill in with ideas above

Conclusion of your father of the groom speech---we are going to discuss that in the final chapter of this post. So, stay tuned.

 

Fourth, you can start writing by picking a story or two from the ideas you have developed above and just create a sketch for what you want to say about your son and new daughter-in-law.

 

Fifth, just put anything that comes to mind down on paper and keep editing it until you are completely happy with your final script.

 

Slowly but surely, we are getting to the final chapter of this post and I want us to quickly look at…

 

My wedding speech samples for my son and daughter

 

How To End Your Wedding Toast For Your Son With A Bang!

Again, let us cull a few lines from the template we are studying so we can dissect it and write a great conclusion that will make your speech one to remember.

 

Here you go, my friend!

‘’ Andrew and Amanda, I really love the fact you both shared values and interests (like your commitment to family traditions) because couples with shared values often flourish beautifully.

Nevertheless, you still have to be there for each other in good times and the bad ‘’

 

If you ask me which component of any speech is likely to stick in the minds of the listeners for a very long time, I would tell you that a well written conclusion can make all the difference if you want your voice to echo through the sands of time.

 

I often get feedback from my clients telling me how enthused people were with their wedding toasts that they asked for copies of it. That often compels me to re-look at it and it always amazes me to know that their closing remarks were very well thought out.

 

You might not have what it takes to do that. So this morning I am going to share with you some helpful pointers and easy-to-follow tips and advice for finishing your father of the groom speech on a very memorable note.

 

First, share your own experience if you are married. That always works if you have been married for a very long time.

 

Second, if you are a deeply religious person or a bible-believing Christian, you can simply come up with a faith based message or advice.

 

Verses from the bible or from sermons you have heard can help you add a touch of spirituality if the audience is mostly church people.

 

Here’s one great piece of advice I got from the website: What Christians Want to Know

A Covenant Not A Contract

A contract is written to say, “if you will do this, I will do that.” Or, “if you don’t do this, then the consequences are …” In a contract what you do is dependent on the other person. However, a covenant is a promise: a one-sided promise that says you will do (or refrain from doing) certain things because you choose to do so. In marriage the covenant is made because of love. It is a promise from you to your spouse regardless of what they do or how they act.

 

Your marriage is a covenant with them. It completely depends on your decisions. Marriage is not a contract that is dependent on the actions of the other person.

 

Marriage is Never 50-50

Along the lines of your marriage not being a contract you should not see your responsibility as 50% of the responsibility. Or, another way to put it is saying that he is responsible for 50% of the marriage and she the other 50%. Doing so causes you to base your response on the actions of another—just like a contract. Each of you should feel like 100% of the success of the marriage rests on your own shoulders.

 

 

Third, if you have a good singing voice, just croon it to the beat of a well-known song and the guests will love every bit of it.

 

For example, you may use John Legend’s ‘’Stay With You’’ to accomplish his notable goal.

Lyrics

 

We've been together for a while now
We're growing stronger everyday now
It feels so good and there is no doubt
I will stay with you as each morning brings sunrise


And the flowers bloom in springtime
On my love you can rely
And I'll stay with you

 

Oh I will stay with you through the ups and the downs
Oh I will stay with you when no one else is around
And when the dark clouds arrive
I will stay by your side
I know we'll be alright
I will stay with you
Ooooh, ooooh

Though relationships can get old
They have the tendency to grow cold
We have something like a miracle
Yeah, and I'll stay with you

 

Oh I will stay with you through the ups and the downs
Yes I will stay with you when no one else is around

And when the dark clouds arrive
I will stay by your side
And I know we'll be alright
I will stay with you

 

Now, what if we change parts and pieces of this beautiful song and render it like this:

 

Now you start life together

It feels so good and there’s no doubt

The years ahead seems so bright

You promised to stay by each other’s side

But relationships can get old

They have the tendency to grow cold

But when you stay with each other through the ups and downs,  I know you will be alright!

 

Wouldn’t your family and friends loved every bit of that remix? Just think about it.

 

Fourth, you can end with a witty poem about marriage.

Funny Father Of The Groom Speech or Toast: Here's an easy to follow step to writing a funny and heartfelt wedding speech for your son

 

Have you ever listened to or heard a funny father of the groom speech that made your day? Just pause for a moment and see if you can remember one thing the speaker said that almost threw you out of your seat.

 

If you ask any father whose son is about to get married to tell you the kind of wedding speech they envision giving on their son’s wedding day, the vast majority of them will tell you that they intend to make a hilarious father of the groom speeches.

 

Four

 

There’s something really special about making a humorous speech about your son at the wedding or rehearsal dinner as it is one of the best and easiest ways to endear yourself to your family, friends, and even the guests. 

 

Well, even though that’s the dream of most fathers, putting on a rib-cracking performance that will be talked about even days after the wedding bells have stopped ringing is not an easy walk in the park for most fathers.

 

Most fathers wrongly assume that you have to blessed with a natural gift of humor or even have to be a talented comic writer and performer to deliver a funny father of the groom speech.

While having a great sense of humor or having a funny personality can help you accomplish your writing or speaking goals, that gift is by no means all you need to make your listener’s laugh with excitement.

 

Funny father of the groom speech (1)

 

 

To make your wedding speech about your son funny, you just have to throw in one or two amusing anecdotes you can remember. So you shouldn’t in any way force it or pretend to be someone you are not. Remember, your speech should essentially be written using good stories about your son’s life.

 

Having said that, there are proven ways of making your father’s speech humorous even if you are so serious like a corpse and we are going to look at those tips in this post.

 

Before we do so, let us watch a couple of funny father of the groom speech videos so we can figure out what goes into writing them.

 

So, here’s my piece of advice before we start: Watching the videos are meant to give you a pretty good idea of what to expect. So, grab your pen and book or journal so you can jot down ideas that easily come to you.

 

Here you go:

 

Funny father of the groom speech #1

 

 

Funny father of the groom speech # 2

 

 

 

Let me ask you this: Which clip did you really enjoy? I or 2 or both? Whatever your choice is, I just hope you had fun and learned a thing or two from watching both.

 

Now, I want us to see the comic techniques that were used by those speakers so you can best understand how to write yours.

 

First is a situational comedy: a kind of comedy arising out of ordinary or everyday situations. Here, you can do a little brainstorming about your son’s life from when he was a little boy and pick anecdotes you would like to use.

 

The second is, stand up humor or comedy. Stand up humor is a comic delivery in which someone entertains an audience with jokes. If you know a good joke here you can work it into your speech.  Most fathers really embarrass themselves by doing all they can to come with something up even if there’s no room for it.

 

Another style is satirical comedy: a kind of comedy that mocks human weakness. Most fathers mostly use them. But their usage often backfires because the speakers end up saying things that don't have to be said.  If you ever write something, ask yourself if it won’t embarrass your son or anyone.

 

Last is self-deprecating humor. Using this requires that you say something awful about yourself to catch the attention of your audience.

 

For example, you can say: When Kelvin was a little boy, his friends used to ask me if I was his grandpa even though I was only 25 years old when we had him. You see, for some very reason I was balding and the kids thought I was too old to be his dad.

 

With all that being said, let us look at a short funny father of the groom speech example. After we have read it, we will break each part of this sample down so you can get a perfect idea of how you also can write something similar if not better.  

 

So, put on your thinking cap and take notes as you read through it carefully.

 

Here you go: 

 

A Short but Funny Father of the Groom Speech Example

 

Good evening everyone. For those of you who don’t know me, my name is John and I am the father of the groom.  

I want to thank you all for being here tonight, and it means a lot that many of you have traveled from near and far to help celebrate this very special day.

 

As long as I can remember, Jerry was a fiery little boy who was always an endless source of laughter and joy.

Little John was a great listener but she was talkative as a parrot. He always had something to say and if you asked him why he loved to talk, he would look back at you, point at his mouth and say’’ I talk a lot because I have a big mouth!’’

 

Once, we were at Disney and he kept screaming so loud that a little boy asked him to keep mute. Guess what he did? He stood back, looked at the little kid, and said: ‘’  You are not so lucky. You would have been so loud if you had a big mouth like mine ‘’

 

Even though his mouth is not as big as it used to be, my son can still talk his way out of anything. So, Michelle, you have been warned.

 

In a flash, the ‘’Little Chatterbox’’ grew into a very outgoing, funny, hardworking, and resourceful teen who took on a variety of jobs to support herself and the family back home.

 

One time, I saw him going under his bed and curiosity drove me to see what he was doing there. It wasn’t before long that I heard what I thought was the clinking of coins. 

 

Thirty minutes later, he emerged from under the bed with a box full of coins.

So, I asked him what he was doing with the box and he said: ‘’ Dad, I want to become the first millionaire in the family. I just want to touch many lives like the good ones.

 

So, I will keep saving coins until every room is covered in coins since you said sometime back the banks can’t be trusted! ‘’

 

That was who he was. A wise hoarder. He saved every penny and nickel and it doesn’t come as a surprise that he’s now working as a stockbroker.

 

The years have rolled by pretty fast and it’s such a great pleasure watching Jerry grow from that funny boy into a wonderful young man.

 

Humurous wedding speech toast from father to son

 

I couldn’t be happier that he’s found someone to start the next chapter of his life with.

 

Michelle’s family has been friends with ours since we became neighbors some twenty years ago.

I have known her for a very long time and I can tell you that she is very polite and respectful.  On top of that, she’s a great cook. Nothing beats food prepared by this great cook! Should you see that Jerry has gained a little weight in the weeks ahead, then you can be sure that Lady Michelle’s Kitchen has become his favorite place in their house. Isn’t he lucky?

 

 

Jerry and Michelle, I want to wish you and well and to congratulate you both for finally tying the knot. My father said when I was getting married to my wife that the secret to a successful marriage is all about dating your partner and putting them first.

 

That stuck with me so much and it has helped us walk on the endless journey for 40 long years now.

So, my advice to you both is to always date each other and be each other’s keeper.  By doing so, you will rekindle the spark in your marriage and enjoy your special love together.

God bless you and I wish you the very best in all your endeavors.

Was that good? Yes, it was. While there’s the tendency to swipe some of the contents, you don’t have to because so many eyeballs are also reading and you will sound off as a copycat if you do.

 

Now, this is what I want you to do now. Please pick your pen and your journal and put on your thinking cap as I walk you through how that was written in a step-by-step manner.  What you will glean from my analysis will easily help you write your father of the groom speech as you want it to be.

 

We are going to break it into parts as we move along, so let’s start with how to write the introduction of your father of the groom speech.

 

To do so, let’s relook at excerpts of the introductory remarks in the speech above so you can model your example after that.

‘’ Good evening everyone. For those of you who don’t know me, my name is John and I am the father of the groom. 

I want to thank you all for being here tonight, and it means a lot that many of you have traveled from near and far to help celebrate this very special day.

As long as I can remember, Jerry was a fiery little boy who was always an endless source of laughter and joy…’’

 

If you read through the speech template above thoroughly, you will notice that there are basically three parts to that script.

 

Do you know what they are? Well, they are the introduction, body, and conclusion.

 

The introduction sets the pace for the rest of the toast.

The opening remarks are quite similar to meeting someone you love for the very first time because you just have a single chance to make a favorable impression on the guests.

 

So, other than the customary greetings that precede the rest of your hilarious funny wedding speech for your son, you should put in a lot of thought, energy and creativity into coming up with a very captivating opening remark that will have them salivating for more.

 

Thankfully, there are several proven ways of starting with a bang and I am more than excited to share some of them with you. They are guaranteed to bring the house down even if you are not a naturally funny person.

 

So, please don’t go anywhere. Just stick with me a little longer.

 

Here they are:

  • If you are your son’s best man, you can tell the wedding guests how you felt when he asked you to be his best man.

 

Below is an example.

For those of you who may not know me, I am John Williams. I am proud to be Ben’s father and his best man.

I figured initially that Ben would ask one of his buddies to be his best man since those youngsters have hot, fresh blood.

But I feel very honored that he asked me to step into that very active role even though I am not so young anymore and my blood doesn’t flow as well as it did when I was Ben’s age.  It’s now cold as ice.

 

Did you see I wrote that? That’s one of the best ways of bonding with the wedding guests with a great intro.

 

Now, let us consider the other styles.

  • If your soon-to-be daughter in law is from a country where English is not spoken as the first language, you can take the pains to greet her family in her language if they will be at the wedding. You don’t have to worry about getting it right because your in-laws will be very excited that you acknowledged their presence in their own language.
  • If you are going to make a short speech, you can probably say this after your initial self-introduction.

See the example below

''I promise that this is going to be the shortest father of the groom speech ever ‘’ and then you roll down a very long sheet of paper and jokingly add this: ''Seriously, did you believe me when I said that?  Remember, Ben’s mom and I have raised her for 30 years now and you shouldn’t expect anything less than that. You are even luckier to have gotten these few pages considering how old he is. I just didn’t have the budget for a short movie…I was actually considering making a movie about his life because it’s so dramatic! ''

 

  • You can also start with a good joke. Don’t force yourself to come up with one if you don’t know one. You can simply make fun of the groom or others if you want your opening remarks to be lighthearted. But make sure you don’t have to go too far.

 

  • A lot of fathers have very horrible singing voices like airplanes taking off a runway. But if you can sign your introduction well, it will be a hit and probably go viral! Wouldn’t you love it if your speech becomes a sensation overnight?

  • You also can come to upstage looking so funny as a comedian. You may appear in an unusual dress or don a very bizarre wig even if you are not going to make a funny father of the groom speech.

 

  • You may share a story about what your son was like when he was a little boy as you can see in the above example. I am sure that will be so easy to do.

 

It’s now over to you….which of those tips or ideas do you think you can work with?

 

Please decide what you will be comfortable with and go with it. Thank you

 

We have to draw the curtain on that. Let us now see...

How To Write The Body or Structure of Your Wedding Speech For Your Son

Before we do, let us look at excerpts of our model template to guide us in this all-important chapter of our discussion.

''As long as I can remember, Jerry was a fiery little boy who was always an endless source of laughter and joy.''

 

Little John was a great listener but she was talkative as a parrot. He always had something to say and if you asked him why he loved to talk, he would look back at you, point at his mouth and say’’ I talk a lot because I have a big mouth!’’

 

I still can’t stop laughing as I re-read this portion of the speech. Well, the body is the easiest part to write since it’s simply a narration of your son’s life from when he was a little kid to when he found the love of his life.

 

If you are still not sure how to come up with good ideas for the structure of your son’s wedding toast, then I highly recommend that you provide answers to the following questions.

  • What was his life like when he was a little boy?  
  • What was his attitude like when he was an adolescent?
  • Does he have any accomplishments you wish to share?
  • Do you recall any trips or vacations or anything you were involved in that made your bonds of friendship stronger?
  • Do you recall any hilarious anecdotes you want to add to the body of your father of the groom’s speech?

 

Please note: You don’t have to force it if you can’t recall funny memories, just stick to what you have.

 

Having jotted down answers as you could to those questions, just try to write a rough draft of your wedding speech. You can always go back to refine it until it comes out just as you want it.

Now, let’s go on to see

How To Write The Concluding Remarks of Your Father of The Groom Speech

Once again, here are excerpts to help us accomplish our writing goals.

‘’ So, my advice to you both is to always date each other and be each other’s keeper.  By doing so, you will rekindle the spark in your marriage and enjoy your special love together.  God bless you and I wish you the very best in all your endeavors. ‘’

 

Your closing remarks are just as equally as important as your introductory statement because it’s usually the part of your speech that will stay in their minds like the first time you went on a date with that special person in your life.  

 

So, how can you make it happen? It sounds simple enough. Now, I am going to show you a few simple ideas you can use to close strong.

 

First, you can end with a simple piece of advice as you saw just right above the lines above.  

 

Second, you may use a few quotes to enrich your message.  Below are just but a few.

Quote #1: “Compromise, communicate, and never go to bed angry - the three pieces of advice gifted and regifted to all newlyweds.”
― Gillian Flynn, Gone Girl

 

Quote #2: “Love is a vessel that contains both security and adventure, and commitment offers one of the great luxuries of life: time. Marriage is not the end of romance, it is the beginning.”
― Esther Perel, Mating in Captivity: Reconciling the Erotic and the Domestic

 

Quote #3: “Most of a husband’s life is spent in doing research on his wife.”
― Pawan Mishra, Coinman: An Untold Conspiracy

 

 

Third, you can write a faith-based piece of advice with words from the Bible or any good piece of religious literature.

 

Here are some good bible verses you can use to jazz up your closing thoughts.

  1. There is no fear in love. But perfect love drives out fear because fear has to do with punishment. The one who fears is not made perfect in love. We love him because he first loved us. 1 John 4: 18-19
  2. Above all, love each other deeply, because love covers a multitude of sins. 1 Peter 4:8
  1. And now these three remain faith, hope, and love. But the greatest of these is love. 1 Corinthians 13:13

Fourth, you can compare how they both look like to something that's well known to inspire laughter.

For example, you can say that the couple is a lot like Tom and Jerry.

That can become: 

I absolutely love the fact that Dan and Linda are like Tom and Jerry who just can’t live without each other.

Their differences seem obvious, but I admire how they seem to be on the same page when they are bent on accomplishing a goal. They remind me of the proverbial couple who sets goals together and work together to make their dreams come true.

As I said in the beginning, your father of the groom speech shouldn’t be funny from the start of your script to the end.

Great father of the groom toast for son

So, you should strike a fair balance between humor and any other speech style you intend to use.

P.S: Most dads do this...Have you considered it? Want to write and give a great wedding speech like the one above but can't seem to get started because you don't know the exact words to use?

Or not too sure if what you intend writing will be well received by the guests?

Let's help you make your son, wife, and family proud, and let the wedding guests say great things about your speech.

Here’s what one nervous and skeptical dad called Glen sent over after the wedding was over

Father of The Groom Speech Or Toast: Time Tested Tips And Examples To Help You Write The Best Ever Wedding Toast For Your Son And Daughter-in-Law

 

Looking to write the best ever father of the groom's speech or toast for your son and daughter-in-law that will earn you the love, respect, and admiration of the wedding guests?

Four

 

Please don’t go anywhere…Just give me a couple of minutes and I will gladly share with you all the tips and ideas and examples that can help you write a heartfelt and memorable father of the groom's speech or toast.

 

From the moment your son came into your life, you’ve taken on multiple roles - the fierce protector, the wise teacher, the unyielding supporter, the prankster friend, the unwavering confidant, and so many more.

 

But as he prepares to start a new chapter in his life and build a family of his own, there is still one more important role that you (and only you) can play - sending him off on that journey with a great father of the groom speech on your son’s wedding day.

 

It’s okay if you don’t know what to say or even say it better because I know for sure that encapsulating 20 years of memories (or so) is going to be a challenging task to undertake.

 

That’s why I am here this afternoon to help you write a heartfelt father of the groom wedding speech or toast befitting your status as a responsible father of the groom, even if you are not good with words.  

Wedding speech toast for son and daughter-in-law

 

Here’s What Your Father Of The Groom Speech Toast Entails

A unique father of the groom speech should checkboxes on various levels.

It should celebrate your son, the bond you have with him and highlight his positive attributes while also being warm and welcoming for your daughter in law.

 

In addition, it can serve as a heartfelt nugget of advice and insight, from one married man to another who will be shortly entering those ranks.

 

I am not going to lie to you. The expectations are going to be at an all-time high particularly if you give your speech as the host at the wedding rehearsal dinner night.  

 

Most fathers go through this phase of panic when trying to put together a piece, and many of them think that good oratory or writing skills are definitively required to produce a great speech.

 

This is simply not true - while those could be an added advantage, a great speech is much more than technical delivery or fancy words; it’s all about the thought, the emotion, and the intent behind the same.

 

All you need are a few tips, ideas, examples, and a couple of pointers that will help you structure your thoughts and ideas into a touching tribute for your son and daughter-in-law!

 

For now, let’s consider this fair warning before we get ideas to help us create an outline for the content of your father of the groom wedding speech or toast.

 

  • Some fathers wing it. But you shouldn’t unless a eureka moment (you have a sudden bout of inspiration on the spot.)

 

Delivering a speech on the spot is quite arguably one of the toughest things to do - 98% of the time, only great public speakers can pull off something like that.

 

Keeping the flow, the emotion, and the continuity is also a challenge in itself - you could run out of steam, lose your momentum, or accidentally say something that isn’t in the best interests of the evening (which would put a dampener on the celebrations)

 

  • Some fathers copy and paste their information into templates found on the internet.

 

  • Others overthink it. You don’t have to do that. Similarly, overthinking your speech isn’t a good idea as well. You might end up overanalyzing everything you write, get nervous, sweaty, or develop anxiety.

 

For Starters: What Should The Father Of The Groom Say About His Son And Daughter-in-Law?

They say that babies don’t come with instructions and that’s true. But writing the best father of the groom speech does come with instructions or following proven guidelines.

 

When they are asked to say something by their sons, most fathers of the grooms don’t learn as much as they could about the writing process before they put their ideas and thoughts together.

 

What this means is that your father of the groom speech requires some preparation in advance to come up with an amazing wedding speech for your son and daughter-in-law.

 

Before you write your speech, you should first….

Look at the father of the groom's speech videos on youtube and elsewhere. There, you will find speech videos that can inspire the beginning and delivery of your speech. Besides, they are a rich source of practical ideas you ethically borrow for the content of your presentation.

 

Action Tip: We are going to watch two clips. So pick a piece of paper and jot down words, phrases, and examples that you feel you can work with. Thank you for making time to watch both clips.

Did you find anything worthy you wish to include in your speech? If so, please write it down because you will need it when you eventually put your thoughts together.

 

Well, we have a well-written speech here with us, and we will be examining every part of it in detail after we have seen a short but sweet speech in its entirety.  

 

Action Tip: Read the template below carefully and examine how well it is written.

 

Here you go:

A Short But Sweet Father Of The Groom Speech Example

 

Hello everyone. I’m Jeremy Fisher, Andrew’s dad, and now, Serena’s second dad as well.

 

As I look across this room, it gives me immense pleasure to celebrate this joyous occasion with friends and family who have loved, supported and encouraged Andrew and Serena through the years.

 

Maya and I would like to thank all of you for being here today - we’re grateful that you found a way to rejoice with us, even during these crazy times.

 

Andrew is my eldest son and the oldest of five brothers.

 

Standing here and celebrating his marriage takes me back many years to the moment where my heart first burst with joy - the first time I held my newborn son in my arms.

 

Even though I have experienced that same fierce fatherly joy four times over, it never gets old.

 

Andrew was a perennially happy, adventurous, and daring boy, an endless source of fun & laughter. Maya and I enjoyed watching him concoct these cute games that would entertain us for hours on end - when Andrew was 2 years old, he’d run into the room, model a boxing stance, yell, ‘Get my wife!’ and then take off like the wind, to look for the said wife. Thank God, his lovely bride has been found at last!

 

As a little boy, Andrew loved to play the piano in his own way. He’d play our electric keyboard with his little fingers over his head, pound out fistfuls of keys and scream in between the discordant notes.

 

Oh boy, I should have really known that loud music was in his future given that his music choices as a young adult had screamo rap written all over it!

 

As Andrew grew older, he was really into bobby traps. Once, I tied a rubber mallet to a rope and attached a secondary string tied to the lamp post on the sidewalk, then lodging it in the tree.

 

My genius son pushed his brother’s tricycle down the sidewalk into the string tied to the lamp post, sending the mallet swinging out of the tree and knocking the tricycle over!

 

But I would never forget what happened when he was a teenager. Andrew bugged me so much during one of his March breaks, that I banished him to the basement until lunch.

 

When he came up, he was looking pensive and informed me that there was some smoke in the basement and that he’d opened the windows to let it out (swearing that it wasn’t because of his old chemistry set).

 

It turned out that the furnace room was thick with grey smoke, so we opened the basement door to clear it out. Just about then, my elderly neighbor frantically called to inform me that there was a skunk that came from her backyard into mine.

 

Andrew overheard this, yelled out a plan of action (which involved a rocket launcher, detonators, and copper pipes), and took off to shoot the skunk through our front door, all before I could even process what he was doing. Naturally, the skunk retaliated by spraying the entire yard found an escape route but left all of us trapped in the aftermath of the smell.

 

Thankfully, we were in the middle of winter and the smell dissipated before we started using the yard regularly - Andrew still remembers this incident vividly and so do I (and for good reason).

 

In Grade 11, Andrew moved to London to work with our family friend, Mark, who’s also Serena’s dad - they did a great deal of traveling, looked at various types of construction, and even undertook some housing projects on a gratis basis. It turned out that this move was quite possibly the beginning of Serena and Andrew’s relationship, at least through my eyes.

 

When he came back home to complete high school, it was pretty obvious that Andrew was totally smitten with Serena.

 

After graduating from high school, Andrew moved to Montreal and worked for a construction company where he gained many valuable building and construction skills.

 

Now, he’s proficient in machine maintenance and also builds excellent container homes. He really loves what he does and his clients are full of praise and admiration for him and his services.

 

Andrew, I am so proud of your success and even prouder that you’ve grown into a very self-confident, godly, steadfast, persevering, gentle person with a fantastic sense of humor and it’s an honor to have a son like you and now, a very special daughter in law.

 

I absolutely love the fact that Serena is very caring, persevering, faithful, giving, fun to be around, talented, responsible, and helpful.

 

Serena, throughout the years, you’ve shown time and again that true love still exists and I want to thank you from the bottom of my heart for sticking with Andrew through the thick and the thin. I am very confident that you will take wonderful care of my son and become a wonderful mom to your own children someday.

 

 

Let me add that a great marriage is not when the ‘perfect couple’ comes together. It is when an imperfect couple learns to enjoy their differences

 

Congratulations on your wedding and God bless you both. Cheers!

Now, that we’ve read it, let’s break down the speech we are going to write into three parts: introduction, body, and an ending.

 

Funny father of the groom speech

 

First, let’s get a snippet of that father of the groom speech example so you can write a captivating introduction.

 

''Hello everyone. I’m Jeremy Fisher, Andrew’s dad and now, Serena’s second dad as well….Maya and I would like to thank all of you for being here today - we’re grateful that you found a way to rejoice with us, even during these crazy times ''

 

Now, let’s see how you can write your introduction the right way using that extract.

As you did see, the introductory remarks comprise of the following pointers:

 

  • Greeting the audience and thanking them for being present there (it is an important part of wedding speech etiquette)
  • Stating your name and your relationship with the groom or bride. Don’t fail to do this even if you have been introduced by the emcee or the speaker who spoke before you did
  • It can be followed by giving thanks to all the people who have contributed to shaping your son into a very responsible man over the years.

 

Such individuals may include:

  • His mom or your wife
  • His uncles and aunts
  • His paternal and maternal grandparents
  • His brothers and sisters
  • His best friends

Never ever start your presentation without acknowledging those around particularly those individuals as failure to do so is a breach of the wedding speech etiquette. Oh, I forgot to mention that you have to thank the parents of the bride for welcoming your son into their family if you are giving your speech at the wedding reception.

 

This becomes more paramount if you are making a speech at your son’s wedding rehearsal night as the attention will be on you.

 

Action Tip: Can you put down names of folks who have been a blessing in your son’s life from the very beginning till now that he is getting married?

 

We are not done yet. The opening remarks should set the tone for the rest of your speech too. Did you take notice of how Andrew evoked feelings of nostalgia about the birth of his son?

''Standing here and celebrating his marriage takes me back many years to the moment where my heart first burst with joy''

 

That is sure to hit home with the wedding guests. There are a couple of ways to bond with them even more and below are a few ideas:

 

  • You may start with a joke. For example, if you were arguing about who your son looked like when he was born you can mention this fact and make it hilarious.

 

Below is a funny father of the groom toast example based on that.

 

When our son was born, my wife and I spent countless arguing about who he looked like. A week after his arrival, we noticed that he looked more like his grandma.

 

So we called my mom and jokingly said: ''Alice, you should keep this baby because he’s more like your last child. Guess what? He looks just like you!''

Then, she said then do you mind if we nickname him ''Granny Alice''

 

Most of you tease him by calling him ‘’Granny Alice’’ and that’s actually how he earned the cool name.

 

  • You can start your speech with any of these quotes
  1. Falling in love consists merely in uncorking the imagination and bottling the common sense."
  2. "It is not how much we do, but how much love we put in the doing. It is not how much we give, but how much love we put in the giving."-- Mother Teresa 
  3. "A man in love is incomplete until he is married. Then he's finished."--Zsa Zsa Gabor
  4. "A heart that loves is always young."--- Greek Proverb

 

  • Have your son asked you to be his best man? Then the opening lines of your speech should state and tell him how honored you are for asking you to be his best man.

 

  • Again, you can share with the guests how you felt when he was born. If you had to endure a lot to have him, you can state it and your story will make your speech very touching and inspiring.

 

That reminds me of a man who said he felt like a deer trapped in car headlights at night when the doctors asked him to help him during delivery while the nurses were busily watching an important event on TV.

 

  • You can simply walk down memory lane by recounting how you felt when your wife walked down the aisle when you first got married.

 

  • Finally, if the wedding date ties with an important milestone in your son’s life like his birthday, you can proudly wish him a happy birthday to break the ice.

 

Action Tip:  Which of those tips do you wish to start your introductory remarks with? You may go back up and reflect on them. I wish you the very best as you pick the right option.

 

How to write a wedding speech for my son and daughhter-in-law

 

Now, Let’s See How To Write The Body Of Your Speech

This is the start of your story outline and it should continue from the ideas you have composed from the start of your speech.

 

Before you put the bits and pieces together, you first should pick a theme and style for your message.

 

Once a father asked me to write his speech for him and he chose to use the theme of seasons throughout.  Having spent these number of years with him, it’s only vital that you pick a theme that reflects who he is and back it up with a story or two. 

 

Of course, there’s nothing wrong if you want to use different themes but I have seen that will serve you well only if you want your speech to follow from his childhood through adulthood.

 

Having chosen your theme(s), you should pick a style you are comfortable with and not what you’ve seen other wedding speakers do successfully.

 

For example, if you are a naturally funny guy, then you might consider taking that route since it’s in your forte. If you have no amusing stories to tell about him, just stick to what actually played out in his life.

 

 

The trick here is to list as many stories as you can about him and pick out the ones you want to use.

 

If you are doing a joint parent of the groom's speech, you and your spouse can brainstorm together and come up with the right ideas.

 

The boy occupies the biggest chunk of your speech, so use these questions or guidelines to put together the storyline of content or an outline for your father of the groom toast:

 

  1. Do you remember what happened on the day of his birth and how you felt?
  1. How was your son like when he was a little boy? List down his admirable traits.
  1. Do you remember any funny or hilarious incidents involving your son?
  1. Has your son done anything sentimental or sweet for you or the family as a kid?
  1. Talk about your son’s teenage years and stories from that era.
  1. Mention his achievements, be it personal or professional.

 

If you think it’s obnoxious to brag about your kids, please stay off it. Many fathers talk about their feats and there’s nothing wrong with that. So I leave you to decide for yourself.

 

Action Tip: Scroll up this page and write down answers to those seven questions, Afterward, go back to read that example we saw for inspiration, and then write your first draft.

 

If you are giving a stepfather of the groom's speech, you may use portions of those queries. But make sure your presentation flows from when you first came into his life. 

 

If due to work or family estrangement or whatever, you happen to be a distant father of the groom who wasn’t particularly involved in his upbringing, you can overcome the guilt by sharing a piece of advice.

 

Additionally, you can use the moral lessons learned from a story you have read to say something about the marriage journey.

 

If you are still married to his mom, then the best way to make your speech very memorable and enjoyable is to give a joint parent of the groom's speech.  I have written a couple of them and you can tell from reading them that parenting gets sweeter and easier when the burden is shared.

 

By the way, if both the father and mother of the groom are going to speak in one speech, then the template below can serve as a guide.

 

Greetings, thank you, and self-introduction---father.

 

For instance: Good evening and thanks for coming. I am Eric and standing right by my side is my beautiful bride of 40 years… (pause)…Martha (wife mentions name)

 

Introduction---Wife talks about his birth

 

His childhood years---father of the groom says that

 

Growing up years--- the mother of the groom speech

 

Teenage years---both mother and father can speak in turns

 

Your impressions of the bride---let the mother speak her

 

Mention her beautiful qualities---let the groom’s father speak

 

Welcome her into the family---you should do this on behalf of your wife and the whole family

 

Pieces of advice---both father and mother can give pieces of advice separately

 

Well-wishes--- you may let the mother of the groom speak here

 

Toast--- You can end it with a toast

 

Djdjdj

 

Now, I would like to add one thing that most wedding speakers grapple with:

 

How Long The Father Of The Groom Speech Should Be

 

I almost always recommend delivering a short speech, based on our findings here at standing ovation speeches.

It always suffices if you want to give a simple, short, and sweet toast. However, there is nothing wrong with delivering a long speech.

 

I recently wrote a seven-minute for a mother who was worried about the length of her remarks saying she’s read that her speech shouldn’t go beyond five minutes.

Someway, somehow, I persuaded her to go with something long considering the fact any omission might take the joy out of an otherwise beautiful speech.

 

After the wedding, she wrote back saying that she received many warm compliments on it. Needless to say, it worked for her.

So, a long speech can work for you if your story is interesting. But you will have to introspect and see if you can hold the attention of your audience for a long time.

 

Your goal, as always, should be to get the wedding attendees to enjoy your tribute - if you feel that it is too much of an uphill task for you, please stick to something that won’t get on people’s nerves.

 

That reminds me of something that happens to most fathers as they write their wedding speeches for their sons: getting stuck in the process and that’s what we writers call writer's block.

 

Several factors can account for this. First, your mind can drift somewhere as you piece your thoughts together.

 

Solution: make sure you put your mind and heart into what you’re writing. Turn off your television or sound stereo system and your cell phone too if you should. As well as anything else that won’t make you distracted.

You could write early in the morning before sunrise or late in the night when the house is quiet. If not those times are not convenient, you can plug your ears with a headphone to keep out the noise in your environment.

 

Also, don’t edit as you write. Just pour your hearts out on paper and don’t be so worried about how your writing sounds or looks.

 

All great writers-including the ones you admire experience that. But you simply have to rewrite your father of the groom toast till it sparkles. Don’t worry too much about being a perfectionist either.

Fathers' wedding speech for the groom his son

However, if you get a sudden bout of inspiration; you just have to pour your heart out like a flowing stream. If you don’t have a paper and pen in handy, just speak into your phone’s voice recorder.

 

That brings us to the next point:

How To End Your Father Of The Groom Speech On A Memorable Note.

A great speech is like watching a dramatic TV episode. The story could be great, but if you don’t end on a strong note, the memorability factor will be so low.

 

A great ending to your toast is something that your son, your daughter in law and your guests will remember for years to come. Conventionally speaking, most wedding speeches end with toasting the bride and groom; but that isn’t the only way to wrap up a speech on a poignant note.

 

 

There are several other examples and I am happy to share some tried and tested methods with you.

 

  • If you are married and have been married for a long time, you can share some practical advice that has helped you in making your own marriage work.

 

You can see an example of this in action here.

I want the royal couple to know that it takes teamwork for marriage to work.

Sometimes, the pressures of life become so severe that it becomes hard to love your partner the way you want it but if you still work hard to keep the flames of romance and passion burning, there is no way they will give up on each other on this endless adventure.

 

  • If you love poems, you should use that. Find examples of touching love or marriage quotes below.

 

I carry your heart with me By Edward Estlin Cummings

I carry your heart with me(I carry it in my heart)I am never without it(anywhere I go you go, my dear; and whatever is done…

 

Dear and Loving Husband by Anne Bradstreet

 If ever two were one, then surely we. If ever man were lov'd by wife, then thee; If ever wife was happy in a man…

 

  • If you are very religious or a born-again Christian, there are many Bible verses that can lend an ethereal feel to the celebrations. You may use any of these Bible verses to enrich your message:

 

I Corinthians 13: 3-7 (The Message Bible Edition) 

3-7 If I give everything I own to the poor and even go to the stake to be burned as a martyr, but I don’t love, I’ve gotten nowhere. So, no matter what I say, what I believe, and what I do, I’m bankrupt without love.

Love never gives up.

Love cares more for others than for self.

Love doesn’t want what it doesn’t have.

Love doesn’t strut,

Doesn’t have a swelled head,

Doesn’t force itself on others,

Isn’t always “me first,”

Doesn’t fly off the handle,

Doesn’t keep score of the sins of others,

Doesn’t revel when others grovel,

Takes pleasure in the flowering of truth,

Puts up with anything,

Trusts God always,

Always looks for the best,

Never looks back,

But keeps going to the end.

 

Proverbs.18:22(NIV) He who finds a wife finds what is good and receives favor from the LORD

Proverbs.12:4(NIV) A wife of noble character is her husband's crown, but a disgraceful wife is like decay in his bones.

Proverbs 19:14(KJV) House and riches are the inheritance of fathers: and a prudent wife is from the LORD.

Ephesians 5:25 (KJV)  Husbands, love your wives, even as Christ also loved the church, and gave himself for it.

 

  • If you are a person who enjoys humor, you can end your speech with a funny line or a joke like this one:

“Ladies and gentlemen, someone once said that in the first years of marriage, the man speaks and the woman listens. In the second year, the woman speaks and the man listens. In the third year, they both speak and the neighbors listen.”

 

  • You may just offer your best wishes and end with a toast. Any of these one-liners can help you toast the bride and the groom.
  1. May your love life be one of the beautiful love stories ever told
  2. May the almighty God keep you in his safe arms and see you through those dark moments of your lives
  3. May you find real peace and contentment in the little things God provides for you and may you and your children live fulfilled lives

Ok, I am Interested, What’s the Cost?

You simply pay what you want after you’ve got your beautiful speech.

Why? As you know, the current health crisis has caused severe hardships for most people.

Precious lives have been lost, jobs wiped out and families displaced, leaving everyone wondering what the future holds.

Yet, some sons are still getting married and asking their fathers to give speeches.

Nonetheless, not every father could afford our services even before the pandemic suddenly hit us.

So, we have dropped our normal rates so you can simply pay what you want after you have got your beautiful speech.

Please note: When life gets back to normal, this offer will be scrapped for good.

So, please take advantage of it now even if your son’s big day is in the future.

Even though we are going through this crazy time, if you do a poor job at it, your speech will be captured on video and your son and daughter-in-law and other viewers will forever remember what you said and would not attribute your poor performance to the fact there was a deadly disease in town.  

So, please take advantage of it now even if your son’s big day is in the future by simply paying what you want after you get your beautiful speech.
