The groom's speech
Wedding season is upon us and we are starting to pull together a range of pre-written wedding speeches.
(If you are in a hurry and need to knock out a quick speech – this is a very quick way to writing your groom's speech. In the spaces add either a story, name or time as indicated by the word in the brackets.)
When I was younger, I always pictured myself marrying a beautiful woman, getting a house and one day, possibly, children. But as relationships and years came and went, I felt the dream slip away slightly.
That was until I met (bride's name). When we started dating all the passions came back, with more fire and drive than ever. This is one of the many ways I knew that (bride's name) was the one for me.
I first met- (bride's name). [Tell the story of your first date or when you first met. And how the relationship developed, for example the first time you met her parents, or were separated for a period of time.]
When I decided that I was going to propose, I became very scared. So scared in fact that I began shaking and went pale. Over the next few weeks I saved up and bought the ring and started to think of how to ask her the most important question I would ever ask. [Now tell how you asked her to marry you and how she said yes. You could also put in the remarks of family and friends.]
I knew from the first moment I met-(bride's name). (Say how you love her and why you love her so much, for example, any little cute habits that she may have.)
So here we are, the happiest day of our lives, and I am sure there will be many more like it to come.
Finally I have a couple of thank you messages that I have been asked to say-[thank people for the food, donations, best man and the bridesmaids, etc, and thank everyone for coming to join you- but keep it brief]
[Then thank your new wife for marrying you.]
A toast, to the most beautiful woman I have ever met. My wife.
You can also make the speech a bit more humourous by adding in a few examples from the quotes and one lines on our main Groom Speech page.
