Mother Of The Bride Speeches – Your Role
While I was contemplating what were the factors in writing heartfelt mother of the bride speeches, I started thinking about my role as the mother of the bride. I found that being the mother of the bride was really bitter sweet. It’s what most mothers and daughters have looked forward to sharing their whole lives.
Your daughter will most likely look to you for advice. Like most daughters, sometimes she’ll take it – sometimes she won’t. The one thing I needed to remember was that it was Jennifer’s day and she most likely will want to put her special stamp on this special event. We also shared many moments, from helping Jennifer pick out her dress, how to style her hair, and even who will sit next to whom at the reception.
Of course, some of the decisions didn’t involve me at all, but ended up being decided between her and her future husband. I found that the perfect way to express my feelings about Jennifer was crafting a “perfect” mother of the bride speech.
I discovered that taking the time and effort to find the best resources to get you started on your wedding speech, and following them step-by-step like I did, you really can craft a great mother of bride speech. Of course, you’ll not only want to avoid embarrassing your daughter, but will want to express your love and appreciation for having her in your life and letting her know how much she means to you.
You’ll wish her blessings on her new marriage and be able to extend your gift of support for the new happy couple. In short, I found that this is a very important wedding speech. Quite truthfully, it may be the only time you’ll have everyone’s attention to express your thanks and appreciation.
Most importantly, I learned that making sure that you have all of the components covered in your wedding speech, and that nobody is forgotten, is essential. Knowing that there is a business end and an emotional end to mother of the bride speeches is critical and certainly is something that the proper outline and resources will walk you through.
For example, expressing how happy I was that my daughter had found such a wonderful husband and listing all of his fabulous qualities will certainly fall flat if you don’t acknowledge the parents that made him possible. Equally awful would be to forget to mention that special relative that has gone above and beyond, or made a long trip in order to be there just for the happy couple.
But what it all came down to for me was finding the right resource that helped me prepare a well thought out, heartfelt mother of the bride speech. I plan to share with other mother’s of the bride the tips and resources that I found the most helpful in the speech writing process.
Bottom line – this speech is just too important to you and your daughter not to give it the proper time and attention. Remember: well-delivered mother of the bride speeches can make all the difference in how this special day is remembered.
