While weddings are known to be an event most awaited by twos – the bride and the groom that is – we are also aware that while one is ecstatic, the other half of the pair is downright nervous. Women are naturally more outspoken and demonstrative while most men prefer the backseat and speak as few words as possible. This can bring problems in a wedding where brides are expected to be swept away by their grooms’ words and actions.
In the wedding ceremony, the groom’s lines can be as short as his vow and anticipated “I do’s”. During the reception, however, grooms are expected to say more and delight their brides and guests.
No matter if it is your first time to get married, a renewal of vows or your nth shot at commitment, preparing a groom speech always feels like a first time. And yes, many grooms are puzzled on what to put in their bridegroom speech as there’s always a pressure to be romantic and funny.
Truth is, the best groom wedding speech is just something that comes from your heart. While preparation is not a bad thing and you surely don’t want to be scrambling for words when hundred guests are listening, it is always encouraged to let it just flow.
You do not really have to write a long and verbatim speech. You can divide your ideas into short segments. Perhaps you can start with thanking your guests. Make it more personal by saying your guests name along with a short line on how that person shaped you or what you learned from that person but do not do that for everyone or you’ll be up all night just by thanking everyone.
