We are not doing father speeches, and I can say I don’t think I have ever seen fathers or Future In-Laws speak at a wedding, I have seen a mom give a prayer, but that is it.  I only expect people to make speeches if they wish, and ask to, some people just aren’t comfortable with them.

I would say if he is having a hard time thinking of what to say or doesn’t want to participate I wouldn’t make him.  I think speeches come from the heart, and if you have to tell someone what to say then there really shouldn’t be one.
