    Wedding speeches are real nerve raking experience unless you are well prepared for it. However, if you practice you can expect to deliver a decent speech even if you aren’t a very good public speaker.

    my name is Tim and I would like to say that being a father myself to a bride and also a groom( my son first and then my daughter second), and after attending a few wedding myself over the years. I have seen a few good ones and a few not-so-good ones. Now this would include the wedding speeches/toasts also. At that time in my life there was no internet around and finding a good wedding speech /toast was just about impossible let alone knowing how to write one if you wanted to give one. Well, thank God for the internet and the information age. Now all the information you or anybody else wants can be found on the net, including wedding speeches/toasts. Heck I could have given a better speech if I had known about these insights and tips into giving a good fatherly speech/toast.
