A feature that almost all the boring and unpleasant speeches have in common is that they do not interact with the audience. Unfortunately, there are some wedding speeches for the groom’s mother that have this unwanted feature.

This happens when the speaker gives his or her toast like telling a lesson at school. The cause of this behavior might be the fact that the speaker has repeated the speech so many times before the wedding toast, that he or she has learned it by heart. Emotions may also play an important role in this kind of delivering an oration.

The solution to the problem above is to involve (some of) the attendees in the mother of the groom wedding speech. This can be done very easily, in any of the following ways.

Another thing recommended to do and which implies interaction with the audience is that you should congratulate the groom (your son) for his choice (of marrying with such a pleasant woman, your new daughter-in-law).
