Groom Speech Examples

The groom often gets a good roasting from the best man, so the groom’s speech is a chance to say get in a few jokes of his own! As well as thanking the wedding party and both sets of parents, what all the guests are waiting for are some romantic and heartfelt words about his new spouse. You’ll find plenty of example groom speeches to help inspire you when the time comes to write yours, plus jokes and delivery tips.

This site was such a great help for me when planning out my speech.  Being an American, I was not used to the basic structure going into it as we don't really have the same traditions in the order and make up of each speech (especially the grooms speech) and seeing so many great examples was invaluable.  Thanks so much and hope my addition helps as well.   Matt

I wanted to do something a bit more "me" for my speech as public speaking makes me very nervous. I seemed to hit the right balance of humour and sincerity and was pleased with how it was received. The only thing I am not able to show here is that one verse was accompanied by photo of a scone... you'll just have to imagine that bit.
