I have attached a draft of my speech as father of the bride on Saturday 15th Jan, YES, i am terrified.
I would appreciate any constructive critisism, and or any suggestions, I have used your material thankyou which i have found to be very helpful.
My personality type is certainly not gregarious, more the serious type ( grumpy old Scotsman ) but with humour, I have misgivings about using the second paragraph using the hotel room joke ? do you deem it as appropriate.
Wedding in Melbourne.
Any feedbck welcome and may you have a wonderful 2011.
The wedding speech package was most helpful as I prepared the speeches for my son’s wedding just last month. User-friendly examples, many good tips, and a variety of speeches for every need were all there!
If I had to do it all over, I would definitely buy this book again. Thanks to the rich content, the speeches I prepared were most successful!
All the best!!

I haven’t done my speech as yet it is for my daughter’s wedding end of August.
However, your pack helped me a great deal- I found one that was very similar to my daughter and modelled mine from there.
It started me off in the right direction and gave me a template to work with

Just downloaded your kit and had a quick browse through… Although I am not a fan of public speaking I really don’t have trouble with it unless it involves my daughters or granddaughter !!
The last major speech I had to give was for my oldest daughter’s 18th (she is the bride to be) I got through about one and half line before emotions took over and my wife had to finish it for me…
Anything that involves them and I need to talk about I can feel the tears welling up and the voice loses the plot and that is it !
Any tips ?
The wedding is Saturday week, I always leave things to the last minute.. I have even arranged a Dr’s appt to see if might give me something !
Thank you John. I found the wedding pack very helpful, as i didn’t have a lot of time to prepare and wasn’t sure on what things I had to mention.
It also showed me a way of covering a difficult situation. The feed back i received, was that it was a very good speech, and I am not sure how things would have gone without it.

My speech was well received and the most important thing I think was the order in which the speech set out what I wanted to say, thanks to your help, I have received no negative comments at all and quite a few comments of good speech Trevor.
The night was a great success.
As his father died a few years ago I felt that I had a very important speech to make and with your encouraging words etc I feel I did a good job, everyone commented on my speech which was full of feelings.
Thank you so much!
Your information is good, most of it is not me, however I modified Father of the Groom template 2 & it went over very well.
Basically I see your literature as pool of ideas, which gets you started.

Yes I was able to pick and choose parts from all examples. I’m told it was a wonderful speech.
You might include something for single parents, or examples when your child was difficult to raise and not so glowing as in your examples.
I started with the challenging quote, “Congratulations on the termination of your isolation…..”
Once I got through that the rest was easy!
