As a father, you have a sense of responsibility and a sense of being a good father. As a consequence, you want to make sure that your daughter is alright, that she is in loving and caring hands. All of these things are great and normal, but you need to learn how not to exaggerate with details. You see, sooner or later, life’s course to turn your daughter into a wife and mother is normal. You should be able to rejoice and stop worrying. If you only think about how wrong it is or how you are not confident enough, you just try to stop her happiness and your own happiness as well. By doing that, you only get yourself into arguments and stress without any real purpose.
Accepting reality is a good starting point for you to be able to behave as you are supposed to. A bride’s father wedding speech needs to come from the heart and in order for it to be like that, you need commitment and good understanding.
Connect with your wife
Since you are going to give a father of the bride speech, your wife will also have her speech. If you both seem to talk about the very same things, people will act like they are appreciating the good talk, but they will not care. This happens because if you hear the same things from multiple speeches, you get bored and you stop caring.
By connecting with your wife, you will find out what she intended to talk about. You don’t need to argue or to freak out if what she is about to tell you is something you also considered saying. Such things happen frequently and it’s normal because you two are the bride’s parents. You can take some time to consult with your wife and see some strategies together to make sure you split up the talk and begin saying different things instead of talking about the same stuff. It might seem a bit more challenging in the first few minutes, but after that you will find yourselves having a lot of fun together.
