Now The Father of The Groom Will Deliver His Speech
In some weddings the groom doesn’t have a brother or a friend who he can choose as the best man. In those unusual but not so rare occasions the father of the groom performs the duties and responsibilities of the best man. However, there are instances where the groom willing wants his dad to be the best man and groom’s father is happy to oblige. I have attended not one but two such weddings where the father of the groom happened to be the best man. And in both cases they did a wonderful job and that includes the best man speech they delivered at the wedding reception.
But this post is about the groom’s father who is not the best man and the father of the groom speech which is not the best man speech. Recently I attended a wedding where the father of the groom gave a wonderful wedding speech just after the father of the bride speech and before the groom’s. You don’t get the chance to hear father of the groom speeches at every wedding reception party you attend. I just loved it. So much so that I decided to write an article on it – you can read the article on father of the groom speeches under the section Best Man Speech Articles.
But, in spite of being not from the best man, a father of the groom speech has quite a few things that are typically similar to best man speeches. The introduction, the anecdotes . . . they all remind me of a typical best man speech. But the father of the groom would ideally toast the wedding couple while the best man traditionally toasts the bridesmaids. All in all, if you are the father of the groom, it’s an interesting article to read. Who knows, maybe it inspires you to give a father of the groom speech at your son’s wedding reception.
Before I finally wrap it up here’s a message for those of you who just found this blog – you can find more information on best man speeches at Best Man Speech Insight – A Guide To Best Man Speeches .
