How to Prepare Your Wedding Speech for Your Son’s Wedding in 2015

3 Wedding Speech TipsIs your son getting married this year (2015) and you are expected to deliver a discourse during the reception or ceremony of this special event? Don’t worry if you don’t know where to begin from when composing the great father of groom speech that you hope for, because I specially designed this article as an easy-to-use guide to assist you in your groundwork. So, first of all, let’s take a look at a small blueprint for the preparation of such a toast.

Brief Plan for Preparing the Speech of the Groom’s Father

As you may have found out from the introductory article posted on the first page of this website, the phase during which you get ready for your discourse consists, in fact, in three distinct stages:

In the first stage, the RESEARCH, you must:

  1. Gather all the material that you need for composing and delivering the oration. Brainstorming can be useful at this step, but it’s advisable to search on the Internet the details that you need. You can also search appropriate advice and examples of wedding speeches in public libraries (this option is free) and you can even ask a professional public speaker to help you create, repeat and deliver your oration (but this might cost you a lot, unless that speaker is one of your closest relatives or friends). The most convenient (i.e., efficient) way of collecting the necessary facts is by downloading a resource that is suitable for you – that is to say, one that includes all the pieces of advice, samples and examples that you need for having a successful toast (such resources are, in general, cheaper than the option previously mentioned). You can find such an useful resource on this website.
  2. Sort out all the collected material (i.e., tips, suggestions, examples, father of groom speech samples), that you obtained in the previous stage. In other words, you need to classify all the data and organize them in chronological order – more precisely: one group should contain all the facts that you need first (such as those related to the creation of the first part of the talk), another group must gather all the details that you need next (let’s say, for composing the main part of the toast), and so on, until the last group, which should include the information that you need for properly repeating the oration.
  3. PLAN (PRIORITIZE & TIMETABLE). Schedule all the tasks that you must carry out in order to be able to offer an excellent discourse at your son’s marriage ceremony or reception. All the ideas and topics discovered in the preceding step of the documenting (i.e., research) stage must be not only classified, but also prioritized and timetabled. Always make sure that you respect your plan and its deadlines (namely, the time limits of each task), in order to be able to finish the preparation of your wedding toast in a timely manner. However, you can adjust your plan any time you think it’s necessary to do that.

Best Man Speech

Best Man SpeechBest man speeches can be pretty frightening if it’s your first time. The very first wedding that I was the best man at, I didn’t have any idea what I should say. When I agreed to be the best man for the first time, it didn’t even think about having to write a speech. Of course, when it did occur to me, I knew I was going to be in trouble. I am terrified of public speaking, so I put off writing the wedding toast until just a couple days before the wedding.I really didn’t think I would have that much trouble with it, but actually it turned out to be pretty tough and it took a lot of time. When preparing to write your speech, my first bit of advice is simply, don’t wait until the last minute, like I did.

Best man wedding toasts take time and careful thought needs to be put into the speech, so get started early. That really is the only way you will be able to create the best wedding toast. Toasts for weddings can also become pretty scary at the thought of speaking in front of a big crowd and the pressure you put on yourself to deliver a charming, moving and humorous wedding toast. So again, don’t wait till the last minute or it could turn into a less than stealer performance on your part.

I learned in college that the best way to start any writing project is to get a piece of paper and just start brainstorming and write down any and all ideas that come to mind. I started to remember some really great stories about the groom before and after he met his wife-to-be. I also wrote down the things that really inspired me about the groom and his character.Continue reading
