Whenever you are need for new tips for a father of the bride speech, it is recommended to gather your ideas and to be prepared for what comes next. However, sometimes it is not enough to have your own tips and ideas because you will soon realize how these aren’t enough for you to meet the needs of the speech that stands ahead. So, let us now discuss on this topic and present some great tips that you can use as soon as you have the chance.
Simple basics: allocate some more time
One of the first tips that I am ever going to desire that you know of is time. Maybe you don’t even have the smallest clue of how important the time factor is, especially before and during the father of the bride wedding speech, but also after it.
The first point is the time we need before the event. You will need most of the time to make sure you are prepared for everything and whatever your family expects you to complete will be completed in useful time. Trust me that this part is harder to be put in practice than it is to read it from these lines. Unfortunately, it is often so hard to correctly estimate the necessary amount of time for certain things. This is why so many of us fail in time estimations and we keep repeating these mistakes so often. Why are these mistakes constant and apparently general in every family? Let’s take the simplest example: making sure that you have the perfect suit. You maybe imagine that you will go to store X, get a suit for $500 and then you’re done. However, it is only by then that surprises will come between your ideal imagination and practice. For example, maybe your total budget is $500. Maybe you find an awful suit or many of them that you don’t like, within your budget, but then for just $600, you find something you actually wanted. You think it is not a problem, you allocate a larger budget and purchase it instantly, being satisfied about how perfectly it went. Well, yes, that might have been the perfect suit, but doesn’t this affect your budget for the other necessary things? And what if you need 2 hours instead of 20 minutes to look for the perfect tie? And yes, these small details can and will probably ruin everything. So, don’t be more optimistic than reality is. If you assume that this or that might happen, include the details into your time calculations. It is way better to estimate 3 hours for suit and tie and then requiring 2 hours than estimating 30 minutes, while requiring 2 hours. The first estimation actually gives you extra time, while the second estimation causes desperation, anger, frustration and a lot of stress. That’s your choice – which one is preferred in your case?
