The book and materials saved me many hours of “thinking” and researching.
The speeches were unique, and allowed me to tailor one very quickly. And, the live event went extremely well!
Glad I found you!

I used several ideas from you Father-of-the-Groom Speech packet and it went over exceptionally well. For your interest, here is what I put together and with ad-libs during the presentation was well received.
My focus was on speaking directly to key members of the wedding party – my son (the groom), my soon to be daughter-in-law, her step-father and extended family, my immediate family, and finally, the other guests present. Thanks for getting me “off the X.”
Thank you for your help with my speech at my son’s rehearsal dinner and a few short words at the wedding reception.
I was very frustrated trying to come up with something to say to both my son and his fiance.
The bride just lost her father 8 weeks before the wedding and my husband died 8 years before. I felt it was up to me to say something meaningful to them both.
Pulling bits and pieces from some of your letters was the perfect solution as it made it so much easier to tie it all together.
Using your phrasing, ” I am sorry that Chip and Fred cannot be here today as traditionally it would be them standing here giving this speech. Both of your fathers would be so very proud of you today and if they were here, they would want you to know how much they love you both and would say to you…
I welcomed the bride’s family to ours and praised the bride’s mother and father for raising such an incredible daughter.
Then I ended the emotional part with : Thomas, please take Lindsey’s hand and place your hand over hers. Now, remember this moment and cherish it… because this will be the last time you’ll ever have the UPPER Hand.
The audience all laughed after a tearful beginning and I got the biggest applause and hug from my new daughter in law and a tearful hug from my son who said he was so proud. Also the bride’s mom was so grateful to me for giving a speech as she was just too emotional at the event.
Thank you again Belinda for helping make an already treasured moment extra special. I never could have done it without you and your beautiful written words. You made it special!

Your Father of the Groom document was a tremendous help in pointing out the general expectations of that speech.
It also provided several ideas to include in my speech at a time when I was clueless where to begin. It was of great value.

Belinda, I absoulutely loved the pack I got from you. I haven’t used the speech yet as my son’s wedding is 6 months away, but it is already written and waiting!!!
Your pack gave my some great ideas and I used pieces out of several of them to make a speech that suited what I was looking for.
Most of the speeches brought a tear to my eye and I was quite emotional when writing my speech as they are so heartfelt and really capture the love between a mum and her precious son!!
P.s. I have always been a bit scared purchasing things over the net, but your service was unbelievable.
I would like to thank you for your wedding speech pack, it was an amazing help to me.
My husband was dreading making the father of the bride speech, but I just highlighted bits and pieces from all the speeches in the pack until we had an appropriate speech for him.
It was very easy once we had samples of other speeches to help personalise his speech to suit him. I was very happy to find a good variety of speeches to choose from and I am sure that even the most nervous of speakers would feel confident to be able to stand up in front of family and friends without embarrassing themselves.
Thank you once again for helping to make a nervous experience into a memorable one.
