In other words, you should, at least, not offend or annoy anyone present at your son’s wedding reception. Moreover, you ought to please them, by, at least, meeting their expectations which regard you and your mother of the groom wedding speech. More exactly, there are some duties you should accomplish through your talk, such as: blessing, greeting, thanking, welcoming, describing, complimenting, congratulating, etc. You can read more about your responsibilities and your listeners’ expectations in an article that I published here, on this website, and which is focused on the duties of this type of speaker.

Let’s get back to the principal subject of this article: “what is the most important thing in terms of your mother of groom speech“, the atmosphere created, and also “how to create a pleasant ambiance with your talk”. Well, the tone of your discourse is everything. More precisely, it’s your talk’s tone that determines the general atmosphere. This means that you should adjust your tone so that it has the desired effects. Let me provide you some examples in this respect.

I think it’s better to begin with the negative effects, so that you would see what to avoid doing. If you will use the same voice tone for your whole speech, you will bore the listeners and make them to not pay attention to you. The stupid jokes, as well as the sophisticated language and the long, pretentious and complicated formulations annoy and even offend the attendees. A cold and distant tone will make the audience dislike you.

  • the good jokes make the attendees laugh, enjoy your talk and create, about you, the image of a positive and happy woman, who has the sense of humor and knows how to use it;
  • if you will use your own words, therefore, being natural and having a simple language, not pompous, the audience will be impressed in a positive way and will really like you and your wedding speech;
  • a warm and friendly tone will make the listeners feel that they are a part of your family or of your circle of close friends and, as a result, they will highly appreciate you and your discourse;
  • if you will look at various guests during your talk, and also if you will make short pauses while speaking, you will look confident and relaxed, just like a professional speaker.

From the examples presented in the previous paragraphs, I’m sure that you can easily identify the elements that define the tone of the mother of the groom speeches and toasts. First of all, we can talk about exactly the two primary components of any discourse:
