The Groom’s Speech

The groom’s speech is one of the key speeches at a wedding. You typically speak after the father or mother of the bride and the father or mother of the groom. You, along with the father or mother of the bride, are considered the main hosts and speakers of the event. You can speak before, during or after the meal, though the latter is preferable. The Groom’s speech covers all the formalities and thank you’s on behalf of himself and his new Bride. Like any public speaking engagement, it can be a concern, worry and anxious time for you leading up to and during the wedding (until it’s over), as you think about what to say about your Bride, both families, guests, relations and friends and how to say it. This is a once-off occasion and you have one chance, so have no regrets afterwards and enjoy every minute of it.

Great Speech will help you as The Groom to:

  • Write your speech early
  • Put all your thoughts on paper, covering everybody and everything
  • Give the speech structure and format
  • Deliver it authentically and from the heart
  • Look forward to delivering it
  • Receive praises and compliments from the guests afterwards
  • Want to speak in public again

In addition to the groom’s speech, we also provide personalised writing services for the Best Man, Mother of the Groom, and Father of the Groom speeches.
