Three Tips from the Voice of ExperienceWedding - Could not be worse

  1. Early in your marriage you will find it difficult to get the last word in any discussion. With time, though, you will learn how to always get the last two words in every discussion; just make sure the words are: 'Yes dear.'
  2. When my daughter announced she planned to marry the groom I thought I had better carry out some background checks.  So I went to his local police station and asked if he was well behaved.  The sergeant behind the desk was very reassuring. Apparently they never had any bother with him whenever he spent the night there.
  3. Marriage is an institution, and that's where a couple finish up.  See our British Royal Wedding jokes.

So George returns home and says, 'Poppet, I think an affair will bring us closer together.' 'Forget it,' replies his wife. 'I've tried that - it didn't work.'

An Alternative Ending For Your Father of the Bride Speech

A stylish way to finish a father of the bride speech is with a poem.  If you have a good longish speech, then maybe one verse will do to round off your speech before the toast. Another tactic is to complete the formalities of welcoming the guests, thanking them for coming to help celebrate the wedding of your daughter.  Then read a poem to steady your nerves before launching into the main part of your speech.  As ever, preparation builds confidence, then reading your audience is the key to success.  A good poem means that you literally have something up your sleeve.

A Funny Marriage Poem: Yes, I'll Marry You by Pam AyresFather of the Bride Speech

Yes, I'll marry you, my dear, And here's the reason why; So I can push you out of bed When the baby starts to cry, And if we hear a knocking And it's creepy and it's late, I hand you the torch you see, And you investigate. Yes I'll marry you, my dear, You may not apprehend it, But when the tumble-drier goes It's you that has to mend it, You have to face the neighbour Should our Labrador attack him, And if a drunkard fondles me It's you that has to whack him. Yes, I'll marry you, You're virile and you're lean, My house is like a pigsty You can help to keep it clean. That sexy little dinner Which you served by candlelight, As I do chipolatas, You can cook it every night! It's you who has to work the drill and put up curtain track, And when I've got PMT it's you who gets the flak, I do see great advantages, But none of them for you, And so before you see the light, I do, I do, I do!

An Amusing and Funny Nuptials Poem

Marriage is about giving and taking And forging and forsaking Kissing and loving and pushing and shoving Caring and Sharing and screaming and swearing About being together whatever the weather About being driven to the end of your tether About Sweetness and kindness And wisdom and blindness It's about being strong when you're feeling quite weak It's about saying nothing when you're dying to speak It's about being wrong when you know you are right It's about giving in, before there's a fight It's about you two living as cheaply as one[you can give us a call if you know how that's done] Never heeding advice that was always well meant Never counting the cost until it's all spent And for you two today it's about to begin And for all that the two of you had to put in Some days filled with joy, and some days with sadness Too late you'll discover that marriage is madness.

Fathers Are Prepared

As an aside, it's interesting that twice as many people trawl Google for 'Father of the bride speeches' than search for 'best man speeches'. What also amuses Guy is that in my family normally it's the women who have the most to say, yet at the reception there is no convention that allows the women to make a speech. Please send us your father of the bride speeches, and thus help others prepare for this occasion, which drains not only the bank balance, but also the emotions!

The Origin of Honeymoon

If we go back 4,500 years to Babylon, the custom was for the bride's father to supply his son-in-law with all the mead he could drink for a month. Now mead is known as honey beer and because their calendar was calculated from the moon, this period was called the honey month, which translates to honeymoon.

Advice for The Father of The Bride Speech from Will and GuyFather of the Bride Speech

The father of the bride speech is traditionally the first speech at the reception and therefore there is some pressure for the deliverer to set a high standard.  Will, who has taught for some 30 years, would still find this a daunting experience despite having talked in front of people a thousand times or more.  We hope this template may help a nervous and anxious speaker to formulate a cracking speech. The basic idea is to convey the significance of the marriage with a humour and an eloquence that suits the occasion.  Make a conscious decision whether to make the tone sweet and sentimental or wickedly funny. Begin your speech by welcoming everyone to the function; especially the family of the groom. Tell the assembled company something about yourself which will introduce you to the guests who do not know you particularly well. Compliment the ceremony and perhaps comment on how beautiful the newly married couple look together.  Inject some humour by relating events in the planning that you found funny. Talk about your daughter fondly, amusingly and especially, anecdotally.  Have a couple of stories that are perhaps touching or amusing.  Do not embarrass anyone.  Talk about her achievements and your special relationship.  Silly stories about your daughter can be a welcome addition to the speech.  This is needed to lighten up the situation and have everyone laugh a little.  Talk about some of the standout moments before her wedding, events that make the bride as an unforgettable individual.  What makes you proud of having her as your daughter? Tell the guests about your dreams for your daughter and how she has accomplished some of it and enough to make you proud.  Mention amongst your father-of-the-bride jokes the ups and downs of her life, but please, do not mention stories about her former boyfriends. Give some advice; impart some wisdom from your years of experience that the couple can take away with them. If you are still married then try and think of a reason it has lasted and if not then think of a reason that marriages break down and how it can be avoided. Say something special and warm about your daughter and the groom's relationship. Mention how happy and proud you are on this auspicious occasion. Thank the family of the groom and the rest of the guests; wish the newlyweds the best things to come.  Offer a toast to the bride and groom wishing them all the happiness in the world. Be sincere, relax, smile and be confident; that way you honour your daughter with a great father of the bride speech.
