There are a lot of websites to give out wedding speech presentation tips. In this article, we’ll target a different approach, to provide you with the best possible tips you could use during your father of the groom speech.
1) Connecting with your guests
A good speech will connect with the listeners. In your case, these details are even more important, since you have your groom’s father wedding toast. This means, you must connect with all of the guests, to make them feel great for coming, to have them enjoy the moments.
If you want people to feel how you are connected to them, then you must make them feel that you are actually talking to them and your speech isn’t a simple copied version of an existing speech. It’s so simple for anyone to notice if a speech has been copied or taken from anyone.
On the other hand, if you take your time for your own speech, people will appreciate you and will feel how you are talking to them. You can also make up some jokes about some of your guests or include some slight compliments to appreciate how certain ladies are dressed elegantly for their actual or future husbands. Women love to be complimented, but not exaggeratedly.
2) Flexibility in your speech
You should learn how to be flexible during your father of the groom wedding speech. Flexibility is important because we often tend to assume how people will receive the speech, how they will feel about themselves while hearing the speech and even after the speech.
Flexibility involves elements such as:
- Being able to joke in a way that is not harmful, not exaggerated, not disrespectful, all according to what the situation and the atmosphere demands
- Shortening the speech as soon as you notice that your guests are getting bored
- Cutting out and replacing some parts of your speech if you see that you are hurting the groom or the bride – or even other members of your family or the bride’s family – with the things you are saying
- Replace any parts of your speech if you grab a better idea while being inspired at the moment, while feeling how the newlyweds feel
Of course, the things we have mentioned here aren’t the only things that are parts of flexibility. Flexibility also means that you have an expressive body language and people won’t feel any tension coming from you.
3) Expressiveness taken to another level
There are a whole lot of things that can take expressiveness to higher levels. For instance, if you use some objects while you speak, you can become funny, adorable and expressive at the same time. It could be a toy-car or anything as long as you invent a creative use of that object. Please don’t misunderstand this tip here, because you should be aware of how – for instance – making a puppy show or things like that is most of the times a really bad idea which should be avoided.
Expressiveness also flows with your body language. A good usage of your body language will inspire expressiveness while the contrary will fail to do so. People often neglect to notice the important role of their hands during a wedding speech. Your guests will unavoidably notice the gestures of your hands and they will remain with some conclusions as they observe you.
Another thing you should focus on is how you say a quote. Quoting someone’s sayings, a few lines from a book or simply a line from a movie isn’t as simple as saying it out loudly as a robot. While you quote, you must flow through it, people must feel that you feel what you are saying. You can only quote if you can give out the feelings of the quote you had chosen!
