I think dads are meant to embarrass us.  That being said, he is your daddy!  Tell him you are so happy that he was at your wedding, that you loved what he said, and that’s that.


My dad writes poems…some are awesome, some are a little cheesy.  He will probably write a poem for my wedding.  I will love it.  Why?  He’s my dad!

Eh, whaddaya gonna do, know what I mean?  Not everybody is a natural public speaker and he did the best that he can do.  Maybe your expectations for him are a tad unrealistic?  I would cut him some slack.

My dad does public speaking for a living, so of course he is an EXCELLENT speech-giver. I thought his speech at my wedding was damn good, but not tear-jerky, and it was my Maid/Matron of Honor who made me cry. But afterwards, anyone I talked to was 100% in agreement that my dad gave the best speech. Whereas I thought it was the Maid/Matron of Honor.

So really it’s just a matter of perspective — of course I preferred the speech that made ME tear up, but everyone else preferred the speech given by the better speaker. So if your dad is happy, and the guests thought it was a good speech, then so be it! I certainly never told my dad that I thought my screechy about-to-cry Maid/Matron of Honor outshone him Smile
