Your son is going to get married – which certainly makes you feel prouder than many times before. This time, you know that once in a while you are going to meet with your friends and when the discussion topic occurs, you can proudly tell them “yes, he is getting married, I am so proud of him”. While discussing is easy, you need to get your thoughts together and make sure that the speech you will tell at his wedding will be as great as your current discussions are. In order to achieve this purpose, we are now presenting an overview of the father of the groom speech.
Types of speakers
In most cases, the number one influence will be the man who speaks. There are many types of men, but some of them have the ability to speak longer by default while others simply struggle to say 2-3 sentences. Regardless of what type of a speaker you are, you need to know the following. In the same way that we assume and know that a 5-6 minutes long wedding speech can be successful, the same applies for 2-3 minutes of speaking. Yes, even a minimum of 2 minutes will do the job, especially if you can say just the right things. Download 25 Groom’s Father Speech Examples
But what are the right things? Keep reading and you will find out! In essence, as you know yourself and the ability you have to speak, you need to make sure that you only make your speech as long as it’s suitable. If you like to speak a lot, don’t aim for 2 minutes, but if you don’t have too many ideas, then don’t aim for 5 minutes either. Be realistic in all such decisions.
Is the structure important? Who invented it?

However, the structure to be kept for the father of the groom speech is highly important. Why the fuss with respecting a structure which is perhaps decades old? Think about your job, and about the way life is. What if you only went to work at 5 PM (because until then you would’ve enjoyed other activities) and then reached home at 3 AM? Also, what if you ate randomly, without any specific rules such as dinner, lunch, or breakfast? Yes, you probably know the answer: your life would be a mess. Similarly, if you don’t respect a speech structure, it will just become a mess.
What is the structure mainly? It is very simple. You begin with an introduction. Then, you continue by speaking about the groom and the bride. Before closing the speech, there are some moments to share thoughts/quotes/wisdom and then you have the toast. That’s all of what you need to keep, in order. What if you have any ideas to extend the structure and add some parts to it, making it nicer? Go ahead, because your personal ideas will turn the average into awesome.
The correct order of the speeches from your son’s wedding
Well, this is sadly where traditions and mentalities have a fight over the rules, because some people might say “it’s this order, as I say” but then others might say “no, you don’t know it right, it was never that order”. But what is the real order? Who speaks first? Then who follows? Who establishes such rules? More
