Father of the Bride Speech Example

I don't know if anyone here has seen the movie "Father of the Bride." I'm not talking about that remake starring Steve Martin. I mean the original movie from 1950-something, starring Elizabeth Taylor as the bride and Spencer Tracy as her father.

Well, among other things, that movie pictured the father as bursting with love, joy and pride on the day of his daughter's nuptials. I'm here to tell you that the movie makers got it right. I feel all those things right now. My reason for feeling them is simple: Whenever I look at Ellen, my daughter, and Roger, my brand new son, and how they look at each other, it's evident to me that an ocean of love and affection connects these two.

Ellen and Roger have known each other for seven years. They met when they were students at Syracuse University and they've basically been together ever since.

I look at Ellen, so beautiful and stately in appearance. She's sweet and intelligent, caring and upbeat. Ellen is full of life in so many ways.

And Roger? He's a handsome young man; creative, motivated, charming and sincere. In so many ways, these two make a perfect couple. They're outgoing and positive. The glass is half-full. In fact, for these two, considering all they've got going, I'll coin a new idiom: Their glass is completely full. In fact, their cup runneth over altogether.

They'll make a wonderful home in Boston, where they both work in the entertainment field. Their life will be filled with all kinds of friends and plenty of shared interests, like cooking to mention only one of them.

Roger is a great guy. Respectful, considerate and quite romantic in his ways. Before he proposed to Ellen, he called me and asked for permission. It warmed my heart when he did. The actual proposal took place in a beautiful spot in Central Park. It was there, during a picnic in the rose garden, where Roger asked Ellen to be his wife. To share a life. And it was there where Ellen joyously said yes.

You know, going back to that movie again, back to Tracy and Taylor in "Father of the Bride," a big part of the action was about the comedy of events that led up to the actual wedding. Well, I'm here to say we didn't suffer any egregious mishaps or awkward moments as they did in the movie. But it was indeed a challenge, and a huge responsibility, to see this event through to successful fruition.

On that note, I want to acknowledge all the rigorous efforts made by my wonderful wife, Connie, Ellen's mom. Honey, you were great. You did a fabulous job. And likewise, I wish to acknowledge Sylvia and Lennie, parents of Roger and now, most definitely, family with us. These great folks made an extraordinary luau rehearsal dinner last night. It set the festive, loving, heartwarming tone that continues now. May it last all throughout the life of this lovely bride and her handsome groom.

Every family, I'm sure, has their little tales and ways in which they interact with each other. I'd like to share one with with you now.

This story is a bit involved and I hope I don't get too sentimental as I tell it. Years ago, when Ellen was just a little girl, eleven years old to be exact, she presented me with a Hannukah card which she herself had made. Tucked inside that card was a coupon. It was one of the most remarkable gifts I have ever in my life received. In her child's handwriting, Ellen stated that the coupon entitled the bearer, that's me, to have the right to ask her to fulfill three special chores or tasks. The possibilities were unlimited -- with only one restriction that was clearly stated on the bottom of the coupon. It said: "This package includes everything except making Ellen get off the phone for no apparent reason." Well, I tried my best to honor Ellen's wish. Now, on her wedding day, I'd like to call in my three special wishes -- and they regard Ellen's -- and Roger's -- future.

First, I ask them to always be kind to each other. Second, I beseech them to seek and find happiness within each and every day. And third, I implore them both to remember the importance of family, of staying close, and how we'll be here -- or there, or anywhere -- for each other, forever.

In "Father of the Bride," after the wedding was over and all the guests left the house, Spencer Tracy sat down in a forlorned way. The house, a tumult of people just hours ago, had grown all too quiet. He missed his daughter and he felt a terrible sadness, sensing in a way that she was gone, that something had irrevocably changed and that he had lost his little girl forever. Just then, at that very moment of despair, the phone rang. It was his daughter, calling from the train station where she and her brand new husband were about to embark on their honeymoon. "I just called to thank you, pops," gushed the new bride to her father. "And to tell you that I'll always love you." Suddenly, his heart was full again. He sang a happy goodbye to his daughter and then he wiped a joyous tear from his cheek. Turning to his wife, he said: "Nothing has really changed at all." It was a wonderful moment, one filled with peace and confidence and contentment for all. That is precisely how THIS father of the bride feels right now.
