This all in one ebooks pack comes with almost all the speeches you may need, 83 pages total.

In the past mother of the bride and mother of the groom speeches were rare. Usually, at a wedding, you’d hear a father of the bride speech and a best man’s speech. But other than those, any additional speeches—other than impromptu toasts—were usually not expected. Today, mother of the bride and mother of the groom speeches are becoming much more common. If you’re reading this book right now, you’re obviously in the position to give one of them at an upcoming wedding. Now, when it comes to this type of speech, it’s important to understand that they aren’t always easy to give. A lot of emotion will need to go into both the writing and the rehearsing process. It can be difficult, time-consuming, and emotionally-taxing. What this book will do for you is give you a number of speech templates. You can use these as the starting point when you work on your speech. All you will have to do is fill in names and specific anecdotes; and you will have something ready to deliver when the big day finally arrives. Once you have selected a speech and have changed the names, the anecdotes, and the tone (if desired), you will have to rehearse it several times before the wedding. This will ensure that your delivery is smoothed and measured. With all of that out of the way, let’s take a look at the templates.

Mother of the Bride or Groom Speeches
Mother of the Bride Speech I
On behalf of the bride and groom, I would like to thank everyone for coming here tonight. I know they didn’t get the chance to tell you all this, but they asked me to say something. So thank you. For those of you who haven’t met me, I’m [name of bride]’s mother. And I couldn’t be happier tonight to see my beautiful young lady settle down with the man of her dreams. When I was first asked to do a mother of the bride speech, I wasn’t sure if I could. I’m a pretty shy person. And I know that a lot of people probably don’t want to hear another speech after the best man and after my husband were finished delivering their speeches. But I agreed to do it. And here’s why: [Tell a humorous or interesting story about the bride and/or groom that illustrates why you choose to do it]. But that’s not all I want to tell you about my daughter and her husband. I can still remember the first day my daughter told me about him. [Tell story about the first time you heard about groom]. Yes. She was truly in love from the start. It wasn’t long after they met that she secretly began planning the wedding—at least in her mind. I think she always knew that they would end up married. It was just a matter of when and where. Now that I’ve said what I wanted to say, I won’t keep you all any longer. But before I go, I would like to propose a toast to the beautiful bride and her handsome groom. <Raises glass.> To my daughter and to her husband: I love you both. May you find true happiness in each other. May you learn to be patient, understanding, and compassionate towards each other always. And may your love for each other grow stronger every day. Cheers!

Mother of the Bride Speech II
As a married woman of [number of years you have been married], I was excited to hear that my daughter was getting married. I’ve known the joy, security, and peacefulness of marriage. And I had hoped that my daughter would be able to find someone to share it with, too. Well, find someone she did. I can still remember the first day she met [groom’s name]. It was [explain the time of the year and events surrounding the meeting]. I still remember it well because I thought it was so uncommon at the time. Usually, when my daughter met someone new, she didn’t bother to tell me right away. And I’m sure most single people are the same way. You don’t want to announce a relationship to the world—to all your friends and family members—when it is still fragile. But somehow, someway, she new pretty quickly on that this was for real. It wasn’t even months or weeks after she had met him that she called me. On the phone, she told me [Tell humorous or funny store about phone conversation about the groom]. From that day forward, I looked forward to meeting that young gentleman. I knew that if he made my daughter that happy, then there must be something good about him. He must be someone special. As it turns out, he was. A mere [amount of weeks/months before you met groom] after I first heard about [groom], he showed up on my doorstep, looking handsome and, frankly, a bit nervous. I think my husband scared him a bit. But after meeting him, I knew even more that my first impression was correct. I knew he was loving and kind. And ...
