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.
