Sample Mother of Bride Speech - Father Has Passed Away

Wedding speeches can be even harder when a loved one can’t be present. So, we’ve made the process a little easier by including a sample Mother of The Bride Speech, with reference to a brides father who has passed away.

Good afternoon, everyone. Thank you for being here to celebrate the marriage of my beautiful daughter Zara and her wonderful husband Mike. I’m so happy and grateful to welcome Mike into our family and to see Zara so in love.

Zara, you are the most amazing person I know. You are smart, kind, generous, and brave. You have always been there for me, especially after your dad left us too soon. You are my best friend and my biggest inspiration. I love you more than words can say.

Mike, you are a perfect match for Zara. You are handsome, funny, loyal, and caring. You make Zara laugh, you support her dreams, and you treat her with respect. You have been a great son-in-law to me and a great brother-in-law to Zara’s siblings. I love you like my own son.

Zara and Mike, you are a beautiful couple. You have so much in common, yet you also complement each other’s strengths and weaknesses. You share the same values, the same passions, and the same goals. You have overcome many challenges together and grown stronger as a team. You have a bright future ahead of you.

I’m sure your dad is watching over you today, Zara. He loved you more than anything in the world. He was so proud of the woman you became and he would be so happy to see you marry Mike. He is always with us in our hearts and in our memories.

I wish you both all the happiness in the world. May your marriage be filled with love, laughter, and joy. May you always be faithful, supportive, and respectful to each other. May you always cherish each other and never take each other for granted.

Please raise your glasses and join me in a toast to Zara and Mike. Congratulations on your wedding day and may God bless your marriage.

Cheers! 🥂
