A Dad's Wedding Speech

A Dad’s Wedding Speech At His Daughter’s Wedding Ceremony and Party – I decided I would probably begin my speech and toast by addressing you as the “new” family of my daughter . But nevertheless I do believe that it becomes inappropriate simply because now that she is married , you are now “the family” for her . Trust me ; I don’t have a problem with that .

I , in fact , wish for my daughter to have “you” as her priority now . Its time for all of us to consider a backseat in her life . We would certainly gladly accept and appreciate it but would surely request one thing- please make sure you keep her happy ! I am much more than sure that you will always keep her extremely happy . She is going to perhaps be more happy than what she used to be here . But like all fathers , I obsess over my daughter’s joy and happiness which is making me say this over and over again- please keep her happy ! She never was and will never be a burden for me . She is in fact the reason why I breathe and smile . I am getting her married because this is what the law of nature demands . I am helpless in the face of our culture and therefore sending her to your home . She was the happiness of my home and will now light up your home .

A Dad’s Wedding Speech At His Daughter’s Wedding Ceremony – Dedicated to all Fathers

I am giving my world to you . Please make sure it remains beautiful . I am giving away my princess to you . Please make sure she stays as a queen . I have raised her with my sweat and blood and now she is wonderfully perfect . For all the care , love , beauty and warmth my daughter will bring into your lives , I just want her happiness in return—please keep her happy ! If at times you think that my daughter has said or done something wrong , feel free to scold her . But handle her with love . She is very fragile . If at times she feels low , be with her . She just needs a little bit of your attention . If at times she feels sick , show her some care . It’s the medicine that works best for her . If at times she fails to fulfill a responsibility , feel free to chastise her . But empathize with her . She is still learning . Do understand her—please keep her happy ! I don’t mind if I don’t get to see her for months . I don’t mind if I am not able to talk to her on a daily basis . I would be more than happy if she doesn’t remember me much . But , my only motive in life has been my daughter’s happiness which is now in your hands . I beg you , please keep her happy .

Dear son-in-law , these words may not mean much to you now but if you are lucky enough to father a daughter someday , you will appreciate them better when you will find every beat of your heart shouting – “please keep her happy” !

Dedicated to all fathers
