Groom Speech - a video to help you find a great groom speech resource

Actually this is the remake of the earlier Groom Speech video posted a couple of weeks ago. I remake this video because I think it points to the best groom speech resource available on the internet. And I thought that it is quite worthy to post it again. Clicking the 'GROOM SPEECH' link just below the video will take you to the resource page, if you are willing to learn more about it.

Here is the link I mentioned above - GROOM SPEECH

You are going to love it. Guaranteed.

The Groom, the Bride, the Best Man, the Groomsmen and their Wedding Speeches

I noticed many web sites and blogs who are talking about wedding speeches often mention the order in which the speakers should deliver their speeches. Well, isn't that obvious. Anyway, as my blog is about wedding speeches, groom speech to be specific, I thought I should also remind you the order in which the wedding speakers generally deliver their wedding speeches or wedding toasts.

  1. Father of the Bride - The Bride's Father is the first speaker
  2. Groom - The Groom's Speech is next
  3. Bride - A short and sweet Bride's goes here between the groom and his best man.
  4. Best Man - The all important Best Man Speech follows
  5. Groomsmen - Though not very common, the Groomsmen's Speech come next
  6. Maid Of Honor - Last comes the Bridesmaids' Speeches.
There could be more speakers like mother of the bride and brother or sister of bride and so on who could come and deliver their speeches there after. But, the Father of the Bride Speech, the Groom Speech and the Best Man Speech are almost delivered in every wedding ceremony and are the most important of all wedding speeches.

You can have all the speeches packed and ready to deliver at Wedding Speeches & Toasts.

Best Man Speeches

In my last post I promised a sample groom speech. Well, that's almost ready but meanwhile i have something else for you. If you don't know already I have several blogs and a full fledged website on best man speeches. So, I thought, why not tell my readers who are mainly grooms from around the world ( actually they are mainly from the English speaking countries like the US, Canada, UK, Australia, New Zealand and South Africa ) about the best man speech sites that I have. May be they could recommend them to the best men they have already selected or will eventually select. I have also put together a best man speech video which tells you about some very informative and helpful best man speech resources. You can watch it on YouTube by going there. Here is the link - Best Man Speeches Video

And you can watch the best man speech video here on this blog, just below -

Sample Groom Speech - An Example

I want to make it sure that this sample or example groom speech won’t be a very fancy groom’s wedding speech. It’s because the more it’s fancier the harder it gets especially for the first time grooms and, jokes apart, the ones who are not very fond of public speaking. But if you want it that way you can always spice up your groom speech with your stuffs like one-liners and quotations. The other thing I’d like to mention here is that the groom should portrait an image of himself as a responsible person and I don’t think there is much scope to make a groom speech as funny as a best man speech. If you are a groom you should depend on your best man or groomsmen for the fun part. So, let’s start with a sample groom speech. But, I don't think that I could complete this example groom speech in one shot. Sorry, if you are a groom in a hurry. But, nevertheless, this could surely get you started.

Hi everyone! (Ladies and Gentlemen)

Firstly I’d like to sincerely thank everyone present here. Your presence is so important to both of us. My special thanks to those who have travelled a long way, Harry, Ann, Mr. Stevens, (these are the persons who came from distant places) to be a part of this wedding ceremony. Without your best wishes and blessings our marriage wouldn’t be complete. Thanks again.

Before anything else I’d like to say thanks to Suzanne, my lovely bride, from the bottom of my heart. She is the most wonderful girl I have ever met. In fact, she, as a woman, is as amazing as you could ever think of. I’m not saying it as she is my bride today but anybody who knows her would agree. I heard someone saying that marriage is like a gamble, you never know what’s in store for you. But all I can say is, if marriage is a lottery, I have hit the jackpot. Can’t describe it better. Thank you Suzanne for saying “Yes”. You have made me so special. You made me feel like a winner. I can’t describe how happy I am. This is the happiest day of my life . . . no wait . . . this isn’t, because tomorrow will be happier and day after tomorrow even happier than that. This is just the beginning of a happy journey where every passing day is happier than the preceding day.

As I’m delivering this groom speech, I can well remember the day when I first met Suzanne. I used to visit an office at that time for my business; it was like 8 years back. I met Suzanne in that office and soon we began to like each other. We were dating and going places, I was so happy. By the way, if you don’t know already, we were in the same business and used to share our thoughts in spite of being business rivals. I can’t exactly remember when our respect and admiration for each other turned to love for each other. Businessman finds his love in his rival – that could have made a great headline should we were celebrities. By the way, I think Suzanne has got everything that is required to make a celebrity. . . but that’s another story. The rest of this story should more or less sound familiar. After couple of years of dating we finally decided to tie the knot. This is about six months ago and here we are finally in front of you . . . as a groom and the bride.

And here are some incredibly good sample groom speeches.

Sample Groom Speeches would be next

While I'm writing yet another blog post on groom speech, I wonder if there is anything that I haven't written on this particular wedding speech topic. And I just remember that I am yet to write a sample groom's speech. I have several websites and blogs on wedding speeches which include best man speeches, father of the bride speeches and maid of honor speeches. I am yet to create any blog or site on bride's speech or groomsmen's speech (I wonder if it is necessary to write about groomsmen speeches exclusively). Neither have I written anything like example best man's speech.

So, it's high time I post an example grooms speech so the grooms could have an idea on how to write up decent groom speeches. So, if you are a groom looking for a sample groom speech, do keep an eye on this blog as the next post would be an example groom speech.

By the way, you can find some excellent sample groom speeches here.

Groom Wedding Speeches

A Groom Wedding Speech is an opportunity for the groom for expressing his feelings on his wedding day. A smart groom would never let this opportunity pass away. As I have already written in my earlier post you should be actually getting ready for your groom's wedding speech at least a week earlier. But honestly, that's already late because there are several other duties to perform. After all you are the groom and it's your wedding. You just might not find any time to spend a few hours for groom wedding speeches. So, better you start a bit early when you can afford a little more time. Remember that there is no magic bullet, you have to go through the process. Start planning your groom wedding speech right now.

To deliver groom wedding speeches that stand out I have seen even grooms who are not afraid of public speaking, practicing for at least an hour everyday. That's because they wan to impress the gathering at the wedding ceremony with their groom speech. You can find and view some of these great groom speeches on You Tube.

I personally believe that the wedding speech of the groom or the bride need not necessarily be funny like a best man speech or groomsmen's speech. All you need to deliver is a decent, well planned groom wedding speech that suits your personality. However a hint of humor is always welcome. A touch of humor makes every speech sound special and groom wedding speeches are no example.

Guideline for Groom Wedding Speeches

Groom Speech - UK, Australia, Ireland version ?

I have recommended Dan Steven's Groom Speech a number of times in this Blog. That's because I feel like it's the best resource you could have downloaded from the internet. And it's universal, means it remembers that there are Grooms from outside the USA also who might want to listen to him. So, keeping that in mind, his book Groom Speech, meets the expectations grooms from all over the world especially from countries like the US, Canada, UK, Australia, New Zealand and South Africa who needs to deliver a groom's wedding speech on their wedding day.

If you are British living in the UK, an Australian or an Irish and you having your wedding these groom speeches are ideal for you because they mention places or events that will be perfectly recognizable to a audience from England or UK, Australia and Ireland alike . They express your love for your bride and your appreciation of both your parents and your in-laws. These groom speeches also mention your best man in a light-hearted way and end with an appropriate toast to the bridesmaids/maids of honour.
