Re: So, I have a wedding i am the best man in tomorow...Any advice on the speech???
was just in a wedding, not the best man though, just a groomsman. long story short we were all hammered before the wedding, so inevitably this was the exact speech the best man gave, who was also the groom's brother:

people say love is like a rose, but roses die. you know what doesn't die? a potato. (profuse sweating/nervousness/mumbling) so i say get her a potato. you can grow stuff on it. you can make a battery out of it. fuck it, im done.


best wedding ever.

Try this:
“I would start with a joke, joke—Vince Vaughn quote, obviously…Fred Claus. Talk about ex-girlfriends, quote from Love Actually. Hold back your tears, pause…drop the microphone, get out of that bitch. *explosion noise*”

Might work.

its love, life, earth changing, shitty world, all mixed together,

apart from all above, just tell the couple, both of them are starting a new adventure, which not matter whatever turns to be, to cherih the only experience, cherish the other half of the meaning of being a human.

I gave a speech where my best friend was marrying a German woman. They lived in London and got married there. Lots off English friends. I am Irish as the name says.

I started it by saying I would like to thank the English for having both the Irish and Germans here tonight, considering we both bombed the fuck out of London in two wars.

Hire a pro to write the speech!

There are websites that offer stock speeches, as well as people who will draft a personalized one.

Want to make a good impression, hire a pro.

The movies, have writers. That's why the movies always have "amazing" speeches by best men.

Seen this once at a wedding. Best man starts out with so now that (groom) is married would everyone with a spare key to his apartment please return it...then started the speech...one by one have different women come up and place a key on the table.... young women, old women, brides mom, grnadma and even a few guys..pretty funny.... Also just seen this last week Best man says a few words then says i was told not to have a speech longer then it takes for the groom to make love to his bride and then sit down (for speeches that only last 1 min)

I made this mistake. Good thing I didn't veer to far off from my rehearsed speech...but people could tell I was lit. Keep it simple and from the heart and be sure to compliment the bride.

Start by asking the Bride to put her right hand on the table , and the grooms left and right hands on top of hers. After you speach end it with

Now, in case any of you are wondering why I asked groom to place his hand on top of bride, I will tell you now. Grooms name ... as my final role as your Best Man, it has been with great pleasure that I have been able to give you the last five minutes in which you will ever have the upper hand over brides name.

Re: So, I have a wedding i am the best man in tomorow...Any advice on the speech???
Ive been a best man 4 times now.

1. i created a slide show with music of the groom throughout the years with embarrassing pictures to show the bride and her family what they were in for. You can also photoshop what he may look like in the future.

2. I gave a list of reasons why I thought the groom was going to make a good husband and one day a great father followed by a list of all his faults

3. I told a story poking fun at the grooms love of food and how during a camping experience i had shaken up a beer can and threw it in the fire where my friend was hunched over cooking hotdogs. the beer exploded he fell backwards but did not let go of those hotdogs. to which i then exclaimed pretend your wife is those hotdogs and dont ever let her go.

4. simple short sweet " wish you both a lifetime of laughter and love, never go to sleep angry and remember to tell each other you love one another every day

its all in the delivery. timing is key. dont swear and dont rush it. if your speeding through it no matter how good it is its going to sound horrible. good luck.
