If you are following tradition, the Father of the Bride's speech come first. Not only are you probably concerned about what you are about to say, you also have to grab everyone's attention. Unfortunately, they will have eaten and probably drunk too much already. Unless you are lucky, you won't have the services of a Master of Ceremonies. However, some venues may well include a member of staff happy to draw everyone's attention from their after Wedding-Breakfast reverie. If they do, then make sure you take advantage.
A good place to start is to thank everyone for coming. After all, if they hadn't come, it would be a very quiet and boring time. It's your opportunity to welcome the Groom into the family, and there is no reason why you should not gently remind him of his new responsibilities. You will have many memories of your daughter growing up that you may wish to share - but don't overdo it. It's her day, not yours! As you are probably going to be leading into the Groom's speech, it is sensible to round off with saying what a lovely couple they make and wishing them all your best wishes and support for their future together.
The important thing is not to let nerves run away with you. A well prepared speech, that you have rehearsed (with or without our coaching support) will give you the confidence to speak out in the knowledge that you have a speech that your guests will want to listen to.
You've decided you want us to write your speech. First of all, please complete our contact form. We will then get back to you to discuss your exact requirements. No two people are the same. No two weddings are the same. And definitely no two wedding speeches are the same. We will find out exactly what you want and tailor our service accordingly. We are happy to edit your speech (if you would rather write it yourself), or we will write your speech from your own notes. If you want coaching on how to deliver your speech we can do that too. It's your special day, and we want to make sure that you can enjoy it the best you can.
