The Best Man’s Speech

The best man’s wedding speech is one of the main speeches at a wedding, and you usually speak after the groom’s and bride’s speeches. You can speak before, during, or after the meal, though the latter is preferable. Your best man’s speech is probably the one that the guests are most looking forward to; however, it is the speech that the parents of the bride and groom and the bride are the most worried about, i.e., ‘What will the best man say?’. So, as the best man, you need to be aware of this and avoid upsetting people, especially the mother of the bride and the bride. Many best men, like you, usually talk all about the groom and hardly mention the bride, so don’t make this mistake. You, as the best man, are expected to be funny, humorous, and witty, putting a lot of pressure on yourself if you are naturally not. So, it is all about being authentic and adding humour, fun, and wittiness through stories.

Great Speech will help you as the Best Man to:

  • Write your speech early
  • Put all your thoughts on paper, covering everybody and everything
  • Give the speech structure and format
  • Deliver it authentically and from the heart
  • Look forward to delivering it
  • Receive praises and compliments from the guests afterwards
  • Want to do it again for more weddings
