We offer a lot of advice, tips, and tricks to mainly brides here at Chukkar Farm because we will be honest – that’s who is typically most involved in the wedding planning process. But, of course there wouldn’t be a wedding without a groom! So, we’ve rounded up some tips on one of your hardest parts of your wedding – the grooms speech.
1. Give the Speech
Yes, really. No matter how afraid you are of public speaking, this is one speech in your life you can’t talk your way out of (no pun intended). So, make sure it’s a good one by planning it ahead of time, and rehearsing it. That’s what your best man is for – helping you knock these ‘tough’ wedding moments out of the park.
2. Tell Her You Love Her
This may be a no brainer for some – but it’s not for others so we just couldn’t leave it out. No matter how much you try to avoid the sweet, cliche comments about how you’re the luckiest man in the world, or she makes you wobbly at the knees, now is the time to lay it all out!
3. Make it Funny
Tell a good joke – but not a generic one. Tell a funny story about your early dating lives or how you first met. Make it something that won’t embarrass either one of you (too much) but will still get your friends and family laughing and feeling like you shared an intimate story of the two of you as a couple.
4. Keep it Simple – and Short
The outline looks like this: intro, thank yous to in-laws and guests, funny anecdote about your wife, tell your wife how much you love her. The end.
Easy – right?
