It's your daughter's big day and now it's your moment to share your thoughts with friends, family and guests. Customarily if there isn't a masters of ceremonies, the FOB will be introduced by the best man. The father of the bride is typically the first to present his speech. He welcomes guests and thanks them for being a part of the happy occasion. So here are our top three tips on making this moment count:


Share stories about your daughter's childhood, her character, her achievements and things that you are proud of.

Talk about your son-in-law, perhaps when he met the family or an experience you both shared that made you realise that he was the one for her.

Share stories about love from your own experience. Whether married or widowed, a heartfelt anecdote will be appreciated.
