Conquering Fear of Mother of Groom Speech

Yes, afraid is the right term to describe their feeling, which stops them from having a wealthy life. Do you know the reason behind their fear?

More precisely, you might think that preparing for your talk is very complicated – and this thought is caused by the fact that, actually, you don’t know in what this preparation consists. Let me clarify this groundwork for you. After reading this article, you will feel a lot better, because you will discover that getting ready for your discourse can be a piece of cake.

Brief Overview of the Preparation Phase

Preparing your mother of groom wedding toast consists in going through only three stages:

1)   Do the research.

2)   Create the text of the discourse.

3)   Practice the speech.

Let’s take a look now at what you should do exactly in each of these three stages, so that we can dissipate the “fog” (in your mind) connected with the talk’s preparation even more.

Stage 1: Research

Your research consists in three simple and clear steps:

  1. Collect all the information – that is reliable, useful and worth knowing and that you can find about this type of wedding speech.
  2. Classify all the facts and details that you discovered.
  • Plan your groundwork.

It’s true that the accomplishment of the three steps listed above can take from a couple of hours to even days, depending on your needs and working style. However, don’t worry: you can significantly reduce this duration by using the free fact sheets and even the (paid) valuable resource that you can find on this website.

Other things that should be mentioned at this research stage are these:

  • you should use the Internet in your research work; brainstorming can also be helpful;
  • public libraries are another free option – although not too helpful (might not contain the resources that you need);
  • things to look for: mother of the groom speech examples, samples and tips;
  • planning implies: identifying all the tasks that are necessary, ordering them by their priority, scheduling them and setting deadlines for them.

It’s also essential to be aware of the purposes of this research stage:

  • have all the useful info at your disposal
  • finish the groundwork in time.

Stage 2: Creation

The creation of the content of the talk consists in another three simple steps:

  1. Compose the text of the discourse.
  2. Review and adjust this text.
  • Create cards for remembering the facts during the wedding toast.

Let’s see now what you should do exactly in each of these steps. During the composition step, you have to create the format of your talk. More precisely, you must choose the ideas that you would like to include in the discourse, you must set the order in which you would like to incorporate these ideas and, finally, you must formulate them. In the formulation phase, the mother of groom speech samples that you can discover in this series of articles – and especially in the resource – on this website are of great help.

Reviewing and adjusting your oration are (almost) mandatory. In order to do that, you need to write on paper the text of your talk, after having finished its composition. It is necessary to review your text because you might have included some expression or grammatical errors. The length of your discourse might also need some adjustment, since the recommended duration of a wedding toast is somewhere around five minutes. Anyway, the duration of your talk can also be estimated in the last of the three stages of the groundwork – the practicing stage – but you should estimate it at this step, so that you can modify the text and have an (almost) definitive content of your discourse before beginning to repeat it.

What about the cards? Well, they are small sheets of pretty rigid paper or plastic, that you can keep discreetly in your hand and from which you can discreetly inspire during your groom’s mother wedding speech at the reception, and on which you should write, in brief, the main ideas of your talk and other things that you are more likely to forget due to the big emotions caused by the fact that you have to speak in front of many guests.

Stage 3: Practicing

The practicing of the discourse includes only two easy steps:

  1. Repeat the oration.
  2. Modify the text – if necessary.

The repetition of the talk is necessary not only for retaining its content, but also for getting used to speaking in public. Read the article that presents the preparation tips to find out more details about this important step. Between the repetitions of the text, if you discover that something should be changed in the text of your wedding toast, you should adjust it.

And that’s it! Do you see how easy it is to prepare your talk?

Q&A Related to Groundwork

  1. Are all the aforementioned steps (and phases) mandatory? No, but they are essential to the success of your oration.
  2. Is it mandatory to create and use the cards? If you think you don’t need them during your mother of groom speech, you may not create and use them. However, they might be useful at least while practicing, although you can write the main topics on a sheet of paper, instead of cards.
