Tips for your Father of the Groom Wedding Speech

When you need to hold your awaited father of the groom wedding speech, you need to know how to get started, when to get started, how to do it on the way and then how to complete the speech text, ultimately leading you to being at the wedding to present it. In this article, we will focus on ideas of things you need to loose and forget and then we are going to present great tips to replace the things you have just thrown away to life’s dust bin.

First part – things to forget, things to never do or think of

Maybe you are wondering what I am trying to talk about here. Why do you need to forget and not think of certain matters? After all, things are always simple. Yes, I am talking about life, situations, even “horrific” problems if you want to read it that way. The only reason one can ever encounter failure is that he won’t take things simply, but he will rather complicate everything to its extremes. Now, hold on for a minute and think. If I told you that you can buy a house for $5,000, what would you do? What would the simple solution be? You could either go complicated, like: call 5 friends, tell them how big of a liar I was to say something like that, then read online to find 100 more opinions on house prices and you realize you’ve just lost an entire working day. Meanwhile, the simplistic man just tells me he wants to meet me now, and we meet and he finally buys the house for $5,000. Then, later on, you find out about this man as he just bought a home for that amount. Then, is there anything to help you?

So, let us think SIMPLE and BIG!

The ideology of “I am not prepared”

Ok, listen to this. Were you ever prepared, from your birth, to learn to read and write? Were you born with such a desire? Definitely impossible! But you learned those things and now enjoy them day by day, right? The same goes for preparing your father of the groom speech. If you believe you are not up for it, you are not qualified for it then your thoughts and emotions will truly turn you into the most unqualified person ever. This is because human thoughts, emotions and desire are all very strong. The things we believe in are the things we achieve. Then, you can’t say you believed in being a multi-millionaire and it didn’t become true. You know why it didn’t? Because out of one reason or another, you just gave up and convinced yourself that this wasn’t supposed to be. Only if you knew how many poor people became rich, you would probably think 10 times before thinking of something as “impossible”. More

Presenting the Groom’s Father Wedding Speech

father of the groom speechWhen deciding to present your groom’s father speech, you must be really dedicated to what you are doing. It is easy to be dedicated, especially if you have the common sense to understand, from your entire heart, that all of what you are doing is for your son, his love and the family members. Of course, it’s also for the guests, but the main focus is always family. After all, being a part of your own family, you naturally can know that you are doing this for yourself as well.

Know, the art of presenting wedding speeches is more than a simple art. I mean, you need so much dedication, time and efforts invested. Can it be done without such things? Yes, it can be done, but it will definitely be a lot harder. Does that need to scare you off? No, it should rather motivate you to handle it in an amazing way, to make sure all of it will be perfect.

Preparations from the first moment – other than the speech itself

In order to make sure that your father of the groom speech is on the way in a perfect plan, you must make sure that the field is ready. What I actually mean by preparing the field is that you should really make sure that there is nothing, no impediment to stand between your free time and the actual writing, editing and practicing of the speech. It’s all as simple as that. But what are the obstacles?

Destructive second opinions

There are always second opinions with wedding preparations, including your personal father of the groom wedding speech. Some people would do anything, just to make sure that you will let them speak and let them say something, decide something instead of you or simply convince you to change your first decisions. Now, it is good to stay open minded and to realize that there are a whole lot of advices that are going to be highly constructive. Still, in the same way constructivism is coming your way via some people, destructive ideas will also come. But who is the one able to decide about what to respect and what to forget? It’s definitely you!

There is a key to finding out whether it’s a destructive second opinion or not. Do you know that “funny feeling” you often get in a wide variety of situations? Isn’t it that many of these situations later turned out to be real situations with gravity and just because you have ignored that feeling you were lead to choose the wrong path, making the wrong decisions? This has happened to all of us. These are called nothing more than instincts. Our instincts are most of the time unexplainable, but still very accurate. If you sense it, listen to it. Other than that, there are situations when simple logic will reveal what you should do or what you should refuse doing. It’s also about your decisions, your mentality and the knowledge of how your family is. More

Details make the Groom’s Father Speech Perfect

In this article, I will try to present various smaller or larger details, all of them essential for the best of your preparations. Maybe some details will seem meaningless or not too important to be taken into consideration, but you can read further on, because I guarantee that most of the details will be interesting and captivating, but also useful for what you are looking for.

The suit man

Yes, a detail (among many others) is the suit. As the father of the groom, you can’t be dressed like you’ve just arrived from a golf game. No sir, that won’t work. However, if you have the perfect suit, you will have an amazing appearance, even better than you expected at first. But which is the perfect suit? How do you know it matches the wedding occasion and your personality?

Let’s list the few and very important characteristics of a great suit:

  1. The price
  2. The color
  3. Style
  4. Matching with your personality and appearance

The price is obviously the first item on the list. For a wedding, generally, especially if it’s your son’s wedding, you will spend some more money. However, this more money doesn’t necessarily mean spending a fortune. If you are paying enough attention and if you are detail-oriented enough, then you will soon find out that there are ways (plenty of them actually) to save money. Outlets, for example, are great places to find suits sometimes. These are brand new clothes, it’s just that instead of being in the central locations of malls and agglomerated cities, they are a bit “far” away. However, lately, outlets started to appear very close, in some city centers as well. Other than that, there are rentals. I mean, seriously. Who would tell you to buy a suit and not rent it?

Then, the color is very important. It should only be a specific color if it matches the wedding theme. For example, a Hawaii topic wedding wouldn’t go well with a black suit, but a green suit or white suit would work wonders for the Hawaii style. Similarly to this funny example, there are colors and colors – all made for different occasions. All you need to do is pay attention and make your choice accordingly.

Styles are highly debatable. First of all, there is a certain style, which is trending currently. It is for the best of everyone that you will accept and apply that particular style. It is never good to go with other things, with other styles, because you shouldn’t be the old fashioned speaker. After all, the groom’s father wedding speech is an important moment! More

Father of the Groom Speech Ideas

Writing a wedding speech will be achieved by any father, who dedicated himself to writing based on some appropriate ideas. You can always find new ideas, if you dedicate some time for it. However, some ideas aren’t at all new, because in some things you will just have to return to the basics or to the obvious things you’ve considered as “oh, if I do this or that, I am not successful, because it has nothing to do with my speech”. This was the idea that almost ruined my father of the groom speech. And why could this happen, one may ask? The reason is as simple as the question is. The only real reason for such things to conquer your mind is that people have learned to think complicatedly up to a level that now thinking simply almost seems stupid.

Ideas from the past decades

groom's father dutiesYes, this is probably the part you were afraid of, the return to the basics of what the speech really is. This part involves talking with parents, grandparents and generally older people. Of course, you don’t necessarily have to ask them if they agree to the wedding customs we have today or if they agree with this or that. You should rather try finding out how they spoke when their wedding speeches were told. I am pretty sure that every family, be it poor, average or rich, but every family has people who lived other decades when these speeches were probably better known than they are today.

Not every single idea would work, so you’d better simply listen and take notes. Then, from your notes, you will be able to finally decide whether the ideas are usable or not. Your decision should only be influenced by your guests and family members. Learn to stay open-minded, because that is what you need for a great father of the groom speech. Being rigid and believing that your very own conceptions and ideas are the only good ones will only cause a lot of harm.

Taking notes is more than crucial in such cases. You can’t really expect everyone to tell you lovely ideas or things that you will be able to agree with from the first minute. There will be awesome ideas, boring stories and whatever. But, the wisdom of this is that you can always take notes. More
