The Funny Mummy

It’s not just the best man who gets to exercise his comedic chops. This mother starts her speech as she means to go on, warning the wedding party ‘it’s more of a roast than a toast’.

She sets the tone immediately, before rolling off funny stories about her daughter growing up. It’s very funny and thanks to easing us in with all the laughs, packs a surprising emotional punch at the end.

Sure, the mother is helped with delivery as good as most stand-ups. But this needn’t be intimidating. We can have you delivering your speech just as well with a bit of help from our delivery coaching service.

Prop-er Good Speech

Now, props aren’t necessarily encouraged by us at Speechy. They often slow down the speech and can be a little awkward. However, this is a perfect example of how to use one.

Notice how the mum never pauses to let the groom open the prop – in this case, a printed copy of a letter her daughter wrote in her childhood. Instead, she ploughs on delivering joke after joke and a great story about her daughter always wanting to marry a cowboy.

By the time the speech finishes, the gift is opened, and everyone knows what it is. There’s no pause as everyone works it out. She turns the prop into a story.

And it’s a great story! Emotional and funny. Plus, on a separate note, how great is it to see a groom in a cowboy hat. More of that, please!

The Storytelling Speech

Mother of the bride speeches seem to be more popular in America but Brits can do them too. Whereas our first two mums incorporate several stories into their speech, this mother only uses one – a funny story about how the bride initially stood the groom up when they first met.

It’s personal, it’s funny, and it’s quick!

In three minutes the mother set up their relationship, made everyone laugh, and sat down, winning the day and allowing everyone to crack on with the most important part of the day (OK, maybe the second most important part) – partying!

The Take-My-Advice Speech

Mothers don’t just have to hand out zingers about their daughters in their speech. They can also use their years of married experience to give advice to the new couple. 

This speech starts emotionally but then springs the funny advice on us.

It’s personal and everyone in the room gets it. It gives a good perspective on what it’s like to ACTUALLY be married, something these whippersnappers will find out over the years.

Final Advice…

Be funny. Give good advice. And, most importantly, share a good and honest story about you and your daughter’s relationship.

''I had an unbelievable experience working with Speechy. From the moment I got in touch with them I felt supported and come the day of my best mans speech, it went down a storm with a standing ovation.''
''Speechy deserves more than 5 stars. (They) produced a factual, funny Mother of the Bride speech with just the right amount of emotion..... it was ingenious. Thank you so much for the wonderful & priceless memory of having delivered my speech at my daughter’s wedding and nailed it ... and got a standing ovation too. My children were very proud of me, including my new son-in-law! ''
''These Guys are tremendous! One main point is that its not their speech - its yours! This is because it is based totally around what you would like to say, but its the spin that Speechy puts on it, that is the magical bit... Ordinary words become a hilariously entertaining event. There were giggles, applauds, laughs, tears, cheers and standing ovation – all in that order!''
''Feeling anxious or stressed about an upcoming speech? Look no further than Speechy... I just delivered my Best Man speech this past weekend and absolutely crushed it. I was nervous leading up to the moment, but while delivering my speech, I didn't want the experience to end, the room was hooked, and laughing at every joke. Worth every penny... Thank you!''
''Navigating through the wedding industry often feels like you’re stuck on a conveyer belt....Speechy is the complete opposite. They treat you and your wedding like you’re the one and only. I couldn’t recommend them more.''
''Heidi and the whole team at Speechy are an absolute gem! In addition to their talent and extensive experience in speech writing, Heidi had an impressive way of listening to me talk about mine and my partners personal anecdotes, before putting it in such a funny and beautiful way that it felt as though she’d known us for years.''
