The Brides' Groom Speech

You are almost through your groom speech and have thanked almost everybody around in the wedding reception for being present and everything else. But a better groom speech actually begins from here. This is where some groom speeches stand out from the others. So, if you wish to go beyond the usual thank-you type speech you should plan this part of your speech well. There's so much to say - so much to share. Talk about the groomsmen, the best man, the maid of honor, the bride's family and the bride. Talking about the bride, it's a huge opportunity for you as you might not get the chance to praise her in front of the hundreds that are present at the wedding reception. So, as I said, it's time to turn to the bride.

Look into her eyes and wait momentarily before begin to speak about to her. You can speak directly to her or you may speak to the audience expressing your feelings about her. But I am sure that you would agree that if you speak to her looking into her eyes it's going to work better. Almost certainly, she will going to like every word you say and you can realize that by looking into her eyes. Thank her for everything, not just for marrying you. Tell her (and thus let everybody know) how you care for her and why you think you are going to make the best couple in the whole world. Express your love for her - simply spill your heart out.

The majority of the grooms tumble at this part of the speech, more than ever so if you are panicky about public speaking. Nevertheless, as always, getting prepared for your groom speech holds the key. Practice your speech in front of a mirror if possible and fine tune it until you are satisfied.
