If you are an innovative father, it is not a hard or complex thing to write a great, a better groom’s father wedding speech in 2015. Still, to make sure that you’re on the right track, you should find some of the methods to make sure about that high quality. There is no instant one-way strategy, and there is no single rule that would overcome any difficulty or challenge. Still, in this article, you will see how to write the speech in a better way!
Take your time to work on it
First and most important of all, you need to take enough time for the father of the groom speech. You can never expect to have it done, high quality, if you have no time to do it right. So, actually, it’s pretty hard to work on something if you don’t commit to it, right?
Sometimes, it’s still fairly hard to make sure about the time you take to work on the speech. Your son needs your help, your wife also needs your time, which is dedicated to her and your boss also needs you to work as good as you did before.
Find the best of inspirational sources
A lot of people will share the best of their ideas, plans, schedules, whatever they can think of, related to a father of the groom speech. It’s good to get connected to these people, making sure that you receive the inspiration from them.
Of course, just by acknowledging inspiration doesn’t mean you already understand it. By this I mean you need to apply it to your situation. Just because another father told a joke about a bear doesn’t mean your son would laugh about a similar joke. Maybe your son wants other types of things, not necessarily jokes. The idea is that you need to make a proper selection of inspirational ideas to make sure that you will only use the ones that are okay with your son. Never try using things you know wouldn’t be well-received. I mean, you can try, but it won’t end up well.
Also, sometimes reading forums and open public discussions won’t be enough. What is going to be enough, though, is finding multiple sources. For example, you might have some friends, men and women, who have great ideas. It’s not a bad thing to call them, meet and discuss several ideas and details. You will be surprised to know how simple details and simple conversations will get you some new inspiration! It’s actually amazing!
Then, you can call your closest friends, the ones who live nearby and make sure you ask them about any movies or books they wanted to throw away. I mean other people’s garbage might be your free source of inspiration to write an amazing father of the groom speech. Who knows if not some of the books are older, but great quality books on writing speeches? Also, you might find great books with tips about organizing your time, learning some body language basics. All of these things can be learned easily.
If not, you can specifically lookup Amazon.com or other stores. You will surely find something, mostly books or e-books. It’s not a problem if you didn’t hear about the author, because that doesn’t mean the book is poorly written or not good enough to teach you something.
Talk with the young couple
You should spend quite some time talking with your son and the bride. Even if the bride doesn’t have the time to be there when you meet with your son, don’t be bothered, just continue with him. You will thus find out about his ideas and what he intended to do with the wedding. It is important, because now it is accustomed that the groom and the bride would decide when you speak. They might put you first, but that’s not always the case. This is one of the main reasons you need to talk details.
Then, the couple surely have something in mind, like what they intended to do and how they want to do it. You don’t need to prove them wrong (even if you believe they didn’t do it right), but you need to make sure that you support them and if your ideas differ, just share them, but don’t be pushy. Let them decide what they accept and what they refuse. If you were right? They will see and it’s their loss, so nothing to worry about, because some people need to see that you were right before accepting and telling you “thanks, you were right about what you said”.
Also, your son is going through some decision-making time and you will be of great help for him. Of course, don’t try to take control, showing him that you could handle all matters. However, if he asks your help with many things, you should be there for him and make sure to try making them happen. If some of the things he asked are beyond your reach, you should inform him and tell him upfront that you won’t be able to do that.
Still, if some of the things your son or the bride would ask you could be done if you gave up watching a game or meeting with a couple of friends, then it would be fair if you helped them and gave up on the meeting. The people involved will understand – everyone knows how crazy everything goes when preparing a wedding.
Dedicate your energy, emotions and time to the speech
A better father of the groom speech can only stand in the emotions, time, energy, efforts that you have invested. There’s nothing more than that. If you did research? It’s time and efforts. If you thought about a few ideas for hours? That’s time and energy. It’s always about these things.
The more dedicated you get to be, making sure that the father of the groom speech is well-written, the better it is for you to write the speech. This is because the speech quality will be higher than ever before. You never need to overthink things, or speech ideas. You need to keep your mind clear, making sure that you do everything in a simple way. Everything that sounds or seems to complicated is either way harder than it should be due to overthinking or it’s something totally unnecessary. So, make sure you sort things out before you consider adding them to your speech.
Your wife’s help should also be considered. You shouldn’t think like “I’m going to handle the father of the groom speech, because it’s mine”. Remember, you and your wife are a team, not competitors. So, you need to act like a team, even with the speech. There are things you would miss in the speech details, because you’re a man. Still, the same things would seem obvious to your wife and she could easily tell you that something is missing and some suggestions of fixing that. You can also help her, if needed, with the mother of the groom speech. It’s always different, but you know your wife, so you will definitely know which aspects will be the ones she’s most helpful with.
Choose a style and a theme
For a father of the groom speech, if you want even better quality, you should choose a style and a theme. It’s not necessarily because you are being formal, but it’s because you want to make sure that there is a flow and it somehow adjusts to the wedding itself.
In case you don’t know what the wedding theme is, you should really get more involved and make sure to ask. Your wife should know, and your son also knows. While it’s easier to ask your wife, I recommend asking your son. That way, he’ll notice how you care and how you try to be involved.
The speech style must represent nothing more or less than your personality. Of course, you must leave out quarrels or other negative memories, even if they persisted with your son. On the day of the wedding, he must hear about amazing things, not lame ones or hurtful ones. You are the one to make sure about this, by keeping focus and paying attention to what you write.
