Nowadays we can enjoy a lot of different father of the groom speech templates, but sometimes it’s just not enough. Our wedding speech tips focus on waking up your creativity, on forcing you to use your mind and your imagination – as well as your heart – to speak a great speech, the best speech ever. You need to dedicate yourself to this occasion, because it’s a one-time thing, not to mention that everyone will remember it.
So, here are 3 father of groom toast tips for you!
1) Let the newlyweds feel your approval
As a young couple, you can often confront yourselves with the fear of being accepted by each other’s parents. It’s a very rough and harsh feeling to live with a fear of not having their acceptance. Thus, while you give your groom’s father wedding speech, it’s very essential for you to speak in a clear way and to let your honest, pure hearted love be felt by the newlyweds and to clearly tell them that you are happy about this wedding and you accept their decision.
If you think that they could assume or feel your acceptance, it’s not a good idea to go ahead with assumptions. People often lose so many things by not speaking, because they limit themselves to assumptions and to imagination. Stop doing that! Although assumptions might have a low amount of truth hidden within, it’s still the best solution to speak out clearly.
2) Make the guests feel great, just like they were at home
Any wedding dinner should be a blessed event, filled with love and filled with that unique feeling of being in a huge family. This feeling must enter in the hearts of your guests as well, because then they can truly appreciate the entire ceremony and they can really enjoy the moment.
Think of it as this: if you were invited at a wedding to be a guest, how’d you feel like? What would make you feel good about yourself being there, what would make you feel comfortable and all right? Well, the same things that would make you feel good are probably the things that would make your guests feel good.
Some of the things that could really help you in this are:
- Welcome the guests with an honest heart, tell them how happy you are for their presence.
- Tell everyone to enjoy themselves, to feel like at home and to feel free to celebrate in the name of the newlyweds.
- If there are people who you know and you had arguments with them in the past, go there and tell them that there is no anger, no memories of the past and that you can all enjoy this moment freely, in love towards each other.
However, you can also add your own methods of making them feel good.
3) Speak with wisdom
There are a lot of father of the groom speeches which are told, but there aren’t even small parts of wisdom or fatherly understanding in those words. Don’t be the next man to repeat the same mistake with the occasion of your son’s wedding!
We are not referring to wisdom such as science, but we are referring to wisdom in speaking during your speech, speaking things that can touch the guests hearts, but even more importantly, speaking things that will make the young couple and your family feel happy. Words of wisdom are always honest, spoken with patience and reflecting a deep truth. Your wisdom should reflect that you know your son, feel what he feels and respect him for who he is. You should also focus on how important love within a marriage is.
