There’s a whole series of articles offering advice and ideas for all wedding speeches, with special emphasis on ‘The Daddy of all Speeches’! When it comes to the Father of the Bride speech, it is always a good idea to cover off what’s expected – to tell guests what kind of a child the bide was, how she met her new husband and so on. Adding in some humour, some love and even using props such as photos of her as a child will all make the speech go down even better.
