Bride and Groom Wedding Speech Ideas

Posted on : 20-07-2009 | By : admin | In : groom speech


When it comes to the speeches on your big day, sometimes you need to consider the bride and groom speeches together.

For me and my wife, we didn’t want to spoil the surprise by writing out speeches together. But we did think that it might be a good idea to have a chat and figure out the direction we wanted our wedding speeches to go in.

Deciding on Who Says What

When it comes to any kind of speech, whether the grooms wedding speeches or the father of groom wedding speech, it can help to get your stories straight and make sure that every single speech isn’t repeating the other. This is why discussing bride and groom wedding speech ideas with your other half is a good idea.

Not all bride and grooms will do separate speeches. Perhaps only one of you is doing a speech, or maybe you even want to address it together! If you still haven’t decided then I recommend you have a good discussion before moving onto the next steps.

Coming Up With the Perfect Speeches

Once you’ve decided it’s a good idea to talk to your future wife and ask whether she’s preparing a speech herself. Chances are that you will both have a few of the same ideas, such as telling stories of how you met and what you’ve done together.

One option is to decide to cover different topics. Another option is to both cover the story of how you got together – but from different points of view. This can make for exciting, funny, yet still poignant grooms wedding speeches that your guests will love!

Finding bride and groom wedding speech ideas together isn’t always done, but I think sharing some ideas – while still keeping the speeches private until the big day – can be really inspiration. Better still, check out some speech examples to really help your speech be what you want it to be!

Your Groom Wedding Speech and How to Please Everybody

Unfortunately the groom wedding speech isn’t a completely free piece of writing – it is there as a way to make sure you don’t leave anyone out. It took me a long time to realise, but basically it’s about keeping everyone happy to ensure your wedding day goes perfectly!

Thanking The Right People

One of the first things I incorporated into my grooms speech was to thank just about anyone who had got me to where I was on that wedding day. Whether that was my lovely bride, my best man, everyone who gave me advice – I made sure to thank them. And don’t forget the father of the groom wedding speech! He will often have something to say about you, so it pays to have something positive to say about them. Always thank him first and foremost before continuing with the rest of the speech.

Mentioning Your Family

Even though I had told the story a million times, I thought it best to start my grooms speech with a story about how I met my beautiful bride. This always goes down well, and is a great crowd-pleaser for all of those who have made such an effort to be there on your big day.

Next, I will try to add in anecdotes or praise of my family. After all, this is an important occasion and probably your best chance to show the special people in your life what they mean to you. Even if they didn’t directly help me with the wedding, they still played an important part in my life as a whole.

Remember, your wedding day is about the love for your bride, but it’s also about having family and friends around you. Even though I was really nervous about my groom wedding speech, it didn’t take me long to realise that it isn’t too hard to please everybody if you’re careful!

My Groom Wedding Speech Planning

Posted on : 10-07-2009 | By : admin | In : groom speech


I always knew that when my fiancé and I decided to get married I would have to write a groom wedding speech, but I never knew how important that speech was going to be! The truth is that I left it for weeks and weeks before I even realised that I was going to have to get down to it and actually write the thing.

My advice about that? Don’t make the same mistake I did. Plan ahead if you can!

When you first start thinking about your groom speech it can seem like a really challenging task. After all, there is already so much going into standing up in front of everyone and saying those vows, standing up again and making a speech is pretty nerve-wracking!

As the date got closer and closer I tried to think of an inspirational, yet charming and hilarious groom’s wedding speech and it just wasn’t coming to me. So what I eventually decided to do was to sit down and just write some of the thoughts that popped into my head.

Now, believe me when I say that there are more efficient ways to plan a groom wedding toast, but this was great for kick starting my ideas.

At first it was difficult, but when I started using speech prompts and guides I soon started to jot down little bits of information about me and my bride. Where we met, how long we’ve been together, some of our most memorable moments – things like that. It really helped me to put into words the story of our relationship and what we’ve been through to get where we are now.

At this stage I think it’s best not to worry about the order or the content of what you’re writing (or any wedding speech jokes!) The biggest block to getting the perfect wedding speech is never actually starting to write it! So by jotting down my thoughts I was already over the first major hurdle for my groom wedding speech.
