It is now a fine season for all weddings. Be it the spring time or the summer time, these are the hot seasons to organize weddings. I am sure that many of the fathers out there are already caught in this situation, because they already have an upcoming wedding in the family, and probably even more among friends or distant relatives. This is not a problem, especially if you know how the season and other things that might be linked or not to the season will inspire you.
Before proceeding, you know that both spring and summer are seasons full of life. This means that you will mostly see people dressed lightly, because it’s a slightly warmer period of the year. The colors used are also light colors and this can probably be the topic for the wedding.
You know, if you are the father of the groom, then there has probably been mentioned that your help would be required for organizing the wedding. If this is also your case, you should be happy, because by the help you will offer for the wedding you will also make your own parts significantly easier. How come? It is all very simple. If you are one of the main organizers, you can advise people to use a certain topic, related to the season you are all going through, be it spring or summer. This idea is more than marvelous, because by this action, you will make sure to already gain a lot of ideas and inspiration for your own father of the groom speech.
For example, you might notice how the tables at the wedding are changed, how they are turned into special tables. The magic that happens during weddings is really simple, because you will only change a couple of items of appearance, to change the final look of everything.
An inspired introduction for your wedding speech
Writing a father of the groom wedding speech becomes so easy, especially in the moment in which you realize that you have a lot of inspiration to follow. This means, in other words, that you can simply follow the inspiring sources and come up with your own custom father of the groom speech introduction. Simply welcoming the people like everyone else and simply telling them that they can feel comfortable is not much of a speech intro that would capture any attention. But, if you start with the right words, attention will be captured in an automatic way. Let me clarify how automatic attention is obtained. For example, you can simply say that people should observe the fine weather, the happy season surrounding them and that the family welcomes them with the warmth of the sun.
Do you notice the difference of perspective, expression and level of welcoming expressed in the two different instances? Which version would make you feel more comfortable and more like staying for the event and for everything of what is now going on? It is most probably the second version that can keep us paying attention, and that can truly make us want to stay for a wedding event.
Then, it is also about introducing the further parts of the speech and making sure that people will follow and pay attention to those sections too. If that is settled, you will have a successful and easy time speaking. In the contrary case, you might have quite some difficulties there!
Include some jokes and remarks
This is an interesting, but amazingly powerful part of a father of the groom speech. If you have paid some attention towards your guests, who honored you with their presence at the wedding of your son, you will know that it is great if you make use of jokes and remarks. Please make sure that you won’t use jokes that are outside the limits of good sense and also make sure that the remarks you will make are pleasant one and respectful towards everyone. If this is ensured, you can proceed.
Also, it is very much about timing. If you miss the right timing, it is more than inappropriate to make jokes. I mean, there is a minute or a second for each joke. If you missed the moment of it, then it is better for you to stop and don’t say anything.
Then, if you have made sure that the moment is right, it is the perfect time for saying the joke of your choice. However, you should first learn to make sure about the joke’s type, contents and the joke’s way of expressing thoughts. If you don’t know how, please pay attention to the following advice. I always recommend some inspiration before deciding what kind of joke would be decent and allowed for your father of the groom speech. To find out as easily as possible, I highly recommend watching some movies. Seriously, there are so many movies that are full of amazing (or destructive) ideas. Make sure that the wedding related movies you are going to choose as sources of inspiration are chosen accordingly, allowing you to stay decent with the type of joke(s) you are about to use.
There are also amazing websites, most of them being filled with great jokes of all types. Just because things are about a wedding doesn’t mean that you can’t use jokes of other types. You can joke about food, music, circumstances, clothes and mostly anything. The only rule is not to hurt anyone!
Then, there are also remarks one can use with the occasion of a wedding speech. Funny remarks or correctly pointed remarks will not only make people feel better about coming, but they will look to everything happening with a lot more interest than they would’ve had if you didn’t use any remarks. This might seem simple or ridiculous things, but they work without a failure. All you need to do is try to apply them and see what happens!
It is good to consult with friends, always
Sometimes we can’t truly appreciate what a friend means. I mean it! In such cases, when you are preparing for your father of the groom speech, any friend is just gold. If you have friends, they will most probably help you in ways you never imagined before.
Before even having an idea of how to begin your speech text, start hanging out with more and more friends! They will certainly be able to guide you through the process of editing and writing. How will they be able to do this? In many cases, without you noticing or knowing, some of your friends might have had experiences (from their personal circles of friends, who are not common friends with you too) that are exactly for your assistance. If you are wondering why your friends didn’t tell you about such things, then the answer is probably because it was not the case or you had far more important topics to discuss every time you met. So, it makes no sense to start wondering uselessly, asking yourself why you didn’t know and why weren’t you informed in time.
Then, there are maybe some friends you have, who have some other speech experiences. It might be speeches given for other purposes, but every speech has something in common. There is a certain way to address a speech, a certain language of expressing and a certain body language. While these parts will be totally different from one topic to another, other things such as how preparing is done are quite similar.
For instance, you can ask some friends, who you know of as good speakers to tell you about how they were able to manage preparing their own wedding speeches. Were they ready in time? How long did it take for them to prepare? What were the good parts and what were their mistakes?
In today’s society it’s quite the time we start learning from each other’s mistakes. If we fail on these aspects, it is hard to expect ourselves to do things perfectly or greatly. That is not possible without help. Also, the first key of preparing things is that you shouldn’t isolate yourself, saying and believing that it’s your job, your problem or your duty. Yes, even if it is your personal issue, people are born to become social. You will never life a happy, fulfilled and successful life alone. You need other people too!
Then, all the asking for help and all the consulting and advising each other can come to a next, superior level. After you have written some parts of your speech, you can ask your friends to listen to what you have already produced and then advise you on what there is to be changed. Trust me: a friend will definitely look forward to correct you in time, while a stranger would tell you all is great and there is nothing at all to correct. So, this means that you should also be able to listen to second opinions, even if these opinions seem to be outrageous or fake. It doesn’t matter – after all, we sometimes simply deny our mistakes, because we find it difficult to admit a mistake in front of others. Now is the time to leave such feelings and thoughts behind and to accept friends’ help in urgent matters.
Be dedicated with time and efforts
During the spring and summer time, being dedicated is probably even easier than during other periods of time. For example, you might have already gotten bored of staying at home in front of your desk, but you might just desire to hang out with your best friend in the park. You can either do that as a recreating pause or you can simply combine hanging out with him with writing and editing your speech text. It is not a shame, because he knows anyway and it’s also easier.
Then, it is also important to not change priorities. For example, if you have your favorite football game going on live and you know you are truly left behind with the speech text, then it is better for you to concentrate on the speech text rather than being relaxed and focused on the game. After all, your son is more important than a game and the relaxation and good knowledge of having something done accordingly is also far better than spending time with other things and then later realizing that you have lost so much.
It is also well-known that there was never a great groom’s father speech unless the person spent time and efforts. I mean, it’s not like you look at the paper 2 times and the full text is there, written. You have to take the paper, take a pen and start thinking and writing at the same time. There is just no other way to go about that. If you fail to do this, it is very hard to handle things any other way. But, if you are committed to this small job then it’s very easy to complete it with maximum success.
Time is also a factor. Cut out some of your daily activities that aren’t so important, in order to save time for the preparations of the father of the groom speech. Go out in the backyard, after all it’s either spring or summer! Look at the sun, look at how bright it shines and then renew your powers and inspiration to go a couple of levels deeper in writing, to go further and make sure you have advanced with your work.
Look at others to become motivated
If we desire to write an excellent father of the groom speech, look at others. There is some way of being inspired in anything we see. Let’s assume you simply see children playing under the light and warmth of the sun. As you see that, you can remember how your son was and be motivated again, because in the same way someone out there is finding his joy in his children, you were and still are in the same position.
Then, if you see people going to shopping, try remembering if anything important still needs to be purchased for the wedding. If yes, you can purchase it, but if not then you should acknowledge that you can only go shopping if you have enough free time. Lack of free time will never allow you to spend time in malls and other fine areas.
If you see a happy couple, married with children, think about your own son. It is now the time for you to show him how truly and honestly you love him and care for him. This means you support and help him, but it also means that you will make sure about every single aspect of the father of the groom speech you are writing. After all, this work doesn’t have to pass an exam, doesn’t have to be approved for you to get a diploma. However, it will pass the family and guest exam and it will leave you with an invisible diploma in any case, be it a positive or negative one. As soon as you know that these things are real, you should already make sure that you are on the right track with the speech and become even more motivated than before!
