Father of the Groom Toasts and Speeches

Groom's Father Toast #1

Let me honor the bride and groom for a moment. To my son, (Groom). Your giving spirit and your love have earned you most a special gift, your bride (Bride). Cherish her. (Bride), you are indeed a gift from heaven and we welcome you into our family with all our hearts, and we rejoice in (Groom)'s good fortune that he found you, and you him.

Groom's Father Toast #2

Now that we've toasted the bride and groom several times, I'd like to take a moment to express our joy and heartfelt warmth in welcoming (Bride)'s family into ours. In recent days we've had a chance to get to know (Bride's Father) and (Bride's Mother) and their family, and it's now clear just why (Bride) is such a wonderful woman. She, like many of us, is blessed with giving and nourishing parents. So it's no surprise she turned out to be the catch she is! My compliments and thanks to (Bride's Father) and (Bride's Mother) for raising such a wonderful lady as (Bride).

Groom's Father Toast #3

As one Father to another, I want to thank (Bride's Father). He has made (Bride's Mother) and I feel so welcome and (Bride's Mother) and he have hosted such a wonderful wedding. This is a day I will never forget!

Groom's Father Toast #4

I never cry, but I'll admit I was tearing up during today's ceremony. How about the rest of you? Wasn't it beautiful? Let's toast to the joy, health and long life of the bride and groom!

Groom's Father Toast #5

Life is wonderful. (pause) Just take a moment, and reflect on the beauty, and gloriousness of life. (pause) Now, with that thought in your minds and hearts, let's all wish (Bride and Groom) a life filled with their own share of beauty and glory, and that they in turn may give it in double measure to their children and loved ones.

Speech by the Groom's Father

It seems like just yesterday that I was driving home from the hospital after the birth of my first son, (Groom). My eyes welled with tears of gratitude that evening... or perhaps it was just tiredness after an 11 hour labor! But who am I to claim exhaustion after labor?

Well, my heart and your hearts tell us all that it was gratitude indeed that I felt as I left my wife and new child in the hospital. Since then, gratitude and thankfulness have been a theme throughout our life together ever since that blessed day. That joyous day marked the beginning of a road traveled together, between (Groom) and me, his wonderful mother - my lovely wife - and our whole family.

Marriages, like births, mark the beginning of a journey together. Today, we have marked the beginning of a wonderful new journey, in which (Groom) has joined together with a most special, most wonderful woman (Bride).

Two years ago, when I first heard (Groom) tell me about this new girl 'he had met' (I think it was more than that already), I could tell from his voice and excitement just how special (Bride) already was to him.

And today, you all bore witness, as (Bride and Groom) exchanged vows, to just how special they are to each other. Surely their love and commitment will build a long and joyous union.

Please join me in gratitude and thankfulness, to this, the day they begin their new journey together!

Speech by the Groom's Father

Family, friends and especially (Bride and Groom). I remember when (Groom) was born. I was so proud to be the father of that baby boy. I remember when (Groom) was captain of the basketball team in high school and his team won the state championship. I was so proud to be the father of that teenage boy. Today, I am proud to be the father of the man I see here, starting a family of his own and setting out on a great adventure with his beautiful new wife (Bride).

(Bride), it has been a pleasure getting to know you over these last few years and I know that Michael knows how lucky he is to have you. We are thrilled to welcome you into our family and we are so happy to have the rest of your wonderful family here to celebrate with us. This is truly a joyous day!

As you begin your life together as a married couple, I wonder if there is anything I can say to you that will be of value. Most of life is about learning along the way, through the experience of living.

I have to say that I simply ignored most of the advice I received in my life until I found out through my own mistakes and experience that it was good advice. (Groom), it seems like so far in your life you have been that way too. So, instead of offering advice today, I will make a request of you.

I will ask you, (Bride and Groom), to just keep loving each other. Today that is very easy for you and maybe it is hard to imagine otherwise but sometimes life does get busy and difficult and we can get distracted from what is really important.

You have decided that your love for each other is important enough to make a lifetime commitment. Always remember that, even in the difficult times. Simply keep loving each other and your life will fall into place beautifully.

Family and friends, let's raise a glass and toast to a lifetime of love and happiness for (Bride and Groom)!
