The Groom's speech can be summed up in two words - Thank you.
- Thank you to the first speaker for his kind words, best wishes, and for the toast to the bride and groom.
- Thank you to the bride's parents for producing such a beautiful girl.
- Thank you to his parents for their love, kindness and support.
- Thank you to the bride for agreeing to marry him, often followed by an amusing story about when they were going out.
- A declaration of love for the bride and a promise to do all he can to ensure her future happiness.
- Thank you to anyone who has done something special for the wedding.
- Thank you to the guests for attending and for all their presents.
- Thank you to the best man and the ushers for their help.
- Thank you to the bridesmaids for assisting the bride and a comment on how beautiful they look.
- A toast to the bridesmaids.
- Stay sober and avoid the temptation of a little "Dutch courage".
- Rehearse your speech before hand - several times.
- Remember to take your cue cards with you to the wedding.
- Forget to thank anyone who went out of their way to do something for the wedding.
- Be afraid to declare your love for the bride publicly in the Groom's speech. It is the reason everyone is at the wedding, so there is no need to be embarrassed about expressing your love.
- Speak for more than five minutes or you risk boring your audience.
