Wedding speeches are a great way to let your family know how much you love and appreciate them. But, while you have a captive audience for your father of the bride speech , why not throw in a few dad jokes too? Let your daughter and her partner know how amazing you think they are, while also having the entire audience in tiers of laughter. Image: Sacha Miller Photography.

Father to Daughter Wedding Speeches
Best father of the bride jokes for a wedding speech to remember
So your daughter has announced her upcoming wedding and introduced you to the the person who is about to become your son or daughter-in-law. Now you have a wedding to plan. You also need to start thinking about what to say during the reception, which is one of the most important jobs you have during this time. This is the time to expose your feelings about your daughter, even if you're the kind of guy who keeps your emotion to yourself. Otherwise, you might ramble or run the risk of saying something that might embarrass her. Remember that once you say something, you can't "unsay" it. If you follow tradition, your speech will be the first one after the wedding and at the beginning of the reception, so set a good example for others to follow.

It's not just the father of the bride that has major responsibilities on the wedding day—there's plenty for the father of the groom to take care of, as well. From hosting the rehearsal dinner to greeting guests, dads should make sure all these boxes are checked as they get ready for their son's big day. If the father of the groom doesn't already have a suit on standby, he'll need to buy or rent his suit —and this should be done sooner rather than later. When the groom and the groomsmen are ordering their attire ideally five months before the wedding , the groom's dad can tag along and get his own suit or tux.
A wedding toast given by the parents of the groom serves an important role in uniting two families. Toasts give the parents an opportunity to welcome their new daughter-in-law and her relatives to their family, offer wisdom to the newlyweds and tell a story or two about their son. The best advice is to keep your toast simple and sweet. Practice ahead of time, but leave room for a little spontaneity.
