A mother of the groom speech is similar to the father of the bride speech (with a few subtle differences), and they’re becoming more popular. Not least, because of the rise of same-sex marriages.
Whatever the reason for your son asking you to give a speech, make sure you relish it.
Follow Speechy’s expert advice, and you’ll create a speech your son will love and you’ll be proud to deliver. No clichés, Googled gags or potty training ‘anecdotes’.
Why Is The Mother Of The Groom Speech Special?
Traditionally, there’s not much for the groom to look forward to when it comes to the speeches. He has the pressure of delivering one but all he gets in return is comedic abuse from the best man. But why should it just be the bride’s parents who get to mark the wedding as one of life’s special moments. Whatever the gender of your child, their wedding is a big deal – for both of you. This deserves to be acknowledged, so make sure you grab this opportunity and give a great speech.
This means resisting the urge to start your speech with potty training stories (all children do it) or standing up and simply listing all his achievements (boring). Instead, paint a picture of his unique personality with your inside stories. Make people laugh, but leave them in no doubt how much you love your son and his partner.
