importantly, about the couple, their wedding day and what marriage means to them.
Father of the brideTypically the father of the bride (and/or groom) has to foot the majority of the

Grooms Speech Typically, the grooms speech is about the bride - his wife and about their future
together and to thank the people involved in making their wedding a memorable occasion.
Thanking the Father of the Bride
Thank the Bride's father for proposing the toast
For his kindness and friendship
For his daughter
For the wedding feast (if appropriate)
Thanking the Guests
for their good wishes
Everyone for their wedding gifts
Thanking the Bride, His Newly Wed Wife
Thank your new wife for marrying you!
Talk about how you met
Talk about why you love your wife
Talk about your future together
Thank those who have helped organize and plan the event.
Thank the Bridesmaids who have helped your wife through the day. Comment on their charm &
beauty - not too much, though, as you may make your new wife jealous!
Thank the groomsmen and the Best Man
As well as the traditional thanks, the Groom may wish to add a few words about how he met his
wife, activities they share, etc. Gentle teasing is in order.
The grooms speech usaully thanks more people than any of the other speakers.
It is usually considered a bit uncouth to thank the people paying for the celebrations for the money
they have spent. However it is important to make clear that you appreciate their generosity. There
is a risk that your speech becomes a list of "Thank you's" – try to avoid this if possible. One way is
to break up the list of thank-you's with humour or reminiscences. This is particularly effective if it
relates to the person who has just been thanked, or is about to be thanked.
Examples of speeches by the groom.
Best Man's SpeechThe best man's speech is the last of the three traditional Wedding speeches at
a wedding. He usually begins by recounting how he first met the groom and their relationship,
followed by some insights about the groom and bride.

man will thank the the bride and groom on behalf of the bridal party, the bridesmaids and
The 'best man' can talks about the groom's life, experiences, and qualities
Some tasteful jokes and anecdotes about the groom are usually welcome
Some details about the bride and groom, such as how they met
The best man proposes a toast to the newly weds
Traditionally, as a finale, there is a reading of telegrams and cards from people unable to attend
The best man should be careful not to tell of co-lour jokes - this is best kept for the bucks night.
Generally, if the best-man jokes about the groom it should be in a positive manner - remember,
nobody wants to be public-ally laughed at.
