Father of the Bride Speeches Examples
A wedding is always an emotional moment. It brings two people together for life and sanctifies their relationship. It’s one of those days of your life that stay with you forever…it’s an experience that you live with. It never becomes a memory. Wedding transforms the life of the bride and the groom. But the transformation comes along with a transition for the bride. She psychological gets transformed into a wife and accepts the groom’s family and name.

Another person for whom this moment is as special, as transforming and as transitional as it is for the bride is the bride’s father (both her parents actually). He is the man who gives a part of his life away. This moment marks the beginning of a new life for his daughter with a new man in her life. It tells the father that he is not the only most important man in his daughter’s life. The groom, the guests and most of the entire bride look up to the father to say a few words.

As a father it is quite difficult to control your feelings at such an emotional moment and speak to the gathering in a composed and contained manner. But it is a duty and privilege that every father has to honor. So do it with all your heart.
