A good father of the groom speech should be personal, humorous, and moving. What makes THIS toast personal is the excellent and heartfelt advice that the father offers to the newly married couple. Even if the father's marital track record is not that good, a "lessons learned" element can be very poignant and appropriate if sufficiently expressed. Use this example of a father of the groom speech as a guide for writing your own.
Funny Wedding Toast Quotes to Make Your Speech a Hit
If you're blessed with the presence of children and old folk on your daughter's big day, some of the sharper material may not go down as well.

We use a light touch here to pepper an otherwise sentimental speech with the odd barb to lighten things up and move the pace along.

This speech contains plenty of punchy humour and is a good example of how to structure a speech for a bride and groom up for a laugh.
Father-of-the-groom jokes include the father telling the groom to think twice before reporting a stolen credit card because the thief is likely to spend less money than his wife would. These jokes should be witty and should avoid any vulgarity. Another humorous father of the groom joke is for the father to mention he is more nervous giving the speech than he was when he got married, and that this is because he knows exactly what his son is getting into by getting married. The father may also frame the joke as serious advice, such as telling his son that anytime his wife asks how a dress or other clothing looks, he must tell her that it looks great.
