Father of the Bride Wedding Speech Free Sample

Hi, I’m John, Jennifer’s father. I have been waiting for this moment for twenty five years, and I must say that it is one of the most difficult things I have ever had to do. Although it is overwhelming to give your daughter away, it is so satisfying to know that she is marrying one of the greatest men I’ve ever met. If I had to choose someone for her to be with, I would not pick anyone else.

Jennifer has always been the type of person to find a good quality in everyone. Even when she was a little girl, she had such a large amount of compassion that it blew me away.

From the time she was old enough to go to school; Jennifer made friends with every single person in her class. It didn’t matter if one child was not popular, or if the other was too quiet, she found the best in every student that year. It surprised me that she was so sensitive, yet made people feel like they had known her for years.

Since she has always had that quality, I was not surprised when she went into nursing. She thrived off of the fact that she could help people and save their lives. From that moment, she worked more for other people than herself. I always wished she would find a husband so she could do more for herself. Luckily, I introduced John to Jennifer when he started working for my company. I wanted someone who was just as warm hearted as her, but still had a great work ethic and a sense of determination. Even though Jennifer was appalled at the fact that I, her father, set her up on a date, I think she can thank me for it now. After all, I am the perfect matchmaker!

Jennifer, although I have been cringing at the thought of letting you go, I could not be happier for my little girl. I have watched you go through school, around the clock internships, boyfriends, and breakups, and now I know that it was all worth it. I only wish the best for the both of you, and I know that you will have a beautiful marriage that will never once waiver.

John, I am confident that you will take care of my daughter. You have been a dear friend and co-worker of mine for years now, and since day one my impression of you has not once changed. Thank you for treating my daughter like gold. I know in my heart that you will be the perfect match, regardless of what happens later in life.

For this reason, I would like to make a toast. John and Jennifer, may the future bring you happiness, wisdom, and children so I can be a grandfather! But in all seriousness, I give you my whole hearted blessing and I know you two will last a lifetime. I am so happy that this day has finally come.

Congratulations John and Jennifer!
