 The mother of the bride is one of the most important ladies at a wedding…

Most often, the mother of the bride is expected to help with planning the wedding, organizing flowers and the reception hall, and welcoming guests as they arrive.

The mother of the bride may be paying some or all of the final cost of the wedding and will usually want to see that everything goes according to plans so her daughter has a perfect day.

This might be a familiar description for some readers who have helped in wedding planning before.

Along with all the stress of making sure everything runs smoothly, the mother of the bride should usually give a speech at some point during the evening.


In the time leading up to the wedding, it gets HARDER and HARDER to find the time to write and rehearse the perfect speech!

 Here is 2 the Best Website I find: (#1 in wedding speeches on the internet, used by thousands!)

Imagine having to be in touch with the florist, negotiate the nightly rate with the people at the reception hall, hire the band and make sure they are paid, find the perfect gift for your newlywed daughter, and arrange the baking and delivery of the cake!

Who has time among all of those responsibilities to actually write and rehearse a speech that is touching, eloquent and befits the occasion?

“Mother of the bride speeches are also very hard to do well” says Royston Grant, whose event planning business specializes in weddings. “If you talk for too long you will seem to be rambling, you have to be short and to the point, say what you need to see, what’s appropriate to be said, and finish up by congratulating your daughter on the beginning of her married life. It can be a very special moment if you do it well.”

I attended a friend’s wedding recently where the mother of the bride gave a truly lovely speech…

  • She started off by thanking all of the guests for attending the wedding, making special mention of people she knew who were coming from further away and had to fly or drive long distances to be there.
  • Next, she talked about the planning of the wedding and thanked everyone who was involved in it. She mentioned a cousin who owned a bakery and had woken up early that morning to prepare the cake (it was delicious). She talked about the florist who was missing some bouquets at the last minute but phoned around to other florists and still got everything done on time.
  • Lastly, she told a lovely short story about the bride, highlighting their special relationship as mother and daughter. This was a special moment that brought many people to tears.

    What a good daughter I am researching mother of the bride speech writing books for my mom 🙂 I’ve watched her struggle with the speech for past few days and it made me wonder if I would feel just as nervous, when I’m ready to marry my daughter off. Mom, this is my last gift to you before I get married, I hope you’ll write an amazing speech for me 🙂

    My mom’s been stressing over the mother of the bride speech for a couple of weeks now. She hates it whenever I ask her if she’s finished the speech and I get a kick out of her rant every time xD But I’ll be a good son for today and get her this speech writing guide thingy. Who knows how helpful it really is, but I suppose it should at least give her some ideas about the speech.
