If you truly have setup a goal for a great success with your daughter’s wedding, you then definitely need to know everything about the structure of the father of the bride speech. It is also important to acknowledge that it is not only the structure of it – you also need to know many other details. Details are very important, especially if you have decided to go for maximum success. Then, if you are wondering why maximum is needed, think of things as this: your daughter is getting married. This event, this important and giant step in life implies a lot of other things as well. Among those things, you need to know how you can play your role, how you can complete your part in order to make her happy with your speech.
With the wedding speech structure there are also some simple secrets. I call them simple, because it’s not a big deal at all and they are secrets indeed, because you need to know such details in order to have the outcome you have been waiting for (even before you knew you were).
The first part – introduce the event
Your speech would be among the first 2 to 4 speeches. It might even become the first one, if that is your case. While several decades ago people didn’t have too many wedding speeches for a single wedding, and they definitely didn’t have too much flexibility, nowadays things have changed with gravity. This means that the “game” has changed and rules are also different. What I mean to say is that you might be the 1st, or even the 10th speaker. It all depends on how the young couple wanted or how the organizing team decided to handle the speech part.
Even if your bride’s father speech doesn’t go for the first place, you will still need to make sure about a couple of things. A speech part such as the introduction is necessary. This simply means that even if other people have spoken before your speech and had their introductions, you will still need yours. However, you must make sure you handle things with some level of flexibility. For example, if you have prepared a certain introduction from home and you later realize (while listening to other people speaking) that you might want to change it, then you should truly change it. After all, things are still changeable before and during your wedding speech, but nothing can be changed when things have passed by and all events have been completed already. So, this is why you need to think big.
Thinking big also means that you see the whole picture before saying or deciding anything. You can also think about what you are going to say, you can think about what others might say. Of course, the best thing is to anticipate all of what happened before your speech and all the things you are about to say. The introduction must not only capture people’s attention, as it must also give them a taste of what your speech is going to be like.
Now, you don’t need to understand things and reality in the wrong light. Giving a taste of the speech is not like saying the short version of the entire speech in the introduction. What I am truly talking about is giving an insight of style, humor and tone.
The style of the speech is defined by you. The “danger” is that the wrong style in the speech introduction will make people assume that there is a wrong style throughout the entire speech. This is one of the main reasons why people, out of seemingly unknown reasons, find their speeches disrespected and not listened to. Of course, they keep wondering and asking themselves about what is going on, but the problem is that they don’t see the bare truth: it is the style.
Then, the humor of the introduction is golden if it’s not in the wrong way, but it is lame and disappointing if it’s with the wrong style, the wrong joke and so forth. Choosing a proper way and style of humor is a good art of the father of the bride speech success. If you have it the right way, you can easily handle things along the way. The best way to choose proper humor is that you look around on the internet, various blogs and all sort of websites. Make use of these in order to make sure that you have the style, which isn’t unsuitable and isn’t improperly used for a wedding. More
