Best Man Speech Writer or Best Man Speech Writing Service

This is What You Should Know Before You Hire a Best Man Speech Writer Who Will Suit Your Needs And Budget

 

Looking for a best man speech writer or best man speech writing service to help you organize your scattered thoughts and ideas into a very heartfelt best man wedding toast?

 

Just give me a few minutes of your time and I will share with tips and ideas about…

  • How to find the right best man speech writing service that will help capture the essence of your friendship with the groom
  • How to find a professional best man speech writer who will help you write a wedding toast that sounds just like you
  • How to find a best man speech writing service that’s within your budget….
  • Why you should consider hiring a professional best man toast writer…(not what you think…actually more than that)

 

There are many best man blogs like this one and writing guides out there that can help you put down your exact thoughts and emotions into heartfelt words.

 

But, as you know writing an amazing best man toast is not an easy task even if you have a flair for words. You may start jotting down a few ideas only to find yourself wondering what to do next to achieve your goal.

 

It even gets worse if you don’t have the gift of gab and you just realized a few days to your brother’s or friend’s wedding that you don’t have a speech ready yet! When this occurs, these options can help calm your nerves.

 

First, you can block out a few hours and come up with your own best man wedding toast.

 

Second, you can leave it in the hands of a professional best man speech writer who will calm your nerves and takeaway the guesswork out of writing an amazing best man speech.

What that means is that you should hire a professional best man speech writer if …

  • You’re scared you will embarrass yourself and the groom and the bride
  • You have no idea where and how to start your best man speech
  • You know that you are not great with words and you are struggling to find the right words to help you express your feelings about the groom and bride
  • You know that you are not cut out for speaking in public
  • You don’t have a speech ready yet and you are really panicking about what to say and what not to say
  • You are expecting nothing short of a truly a meaningful best man speech for your brother or friend
  • You’re simply overwhelmed by the pressures of work
  • You’re simply overwhelmed with the wedding planning process that you are looking to defer this to a professional best man speech writer so you can just relax and prepare for the wedding day.
  • You have a day or less to your brother’s or friend’s wedding and you are worried that you might not wow your family and friends due to the limited time!
  • You are a good writer or speaker but still want someone to review and modify your script so you can make it sound really special!

 

 

Having seen that, let’s look at a few best man writing services that can help you say what you want even if you have no idea where to start.

Cons: You may not get what you want if you don’t do a thorough background research on your writer.  So, make sure you dig deep before you spend on any writer on that website.

 

Finally,

Let’s see the last website that can help you to eloquently put together your thoughts and feelings into a very beautiful best man toast.

 

Website # 4: Standing Ovation Speeches

Funny Best Man Speech or toast: How to easily write a very funny best man speech for your brother or friend even if you are not a naturally funny person

Just stick with me for a while and I will share with you everything you need to know about writing a funny best man speech for your brother or friend.

I have been writing and reviewing countless wedding speeches for many years and I can tell you that nothing comes close to the joy that a funny wedding speech gives.

 

M4 (1)

 

The wedding guests are coming from far and near not to hear you make a funny best man speech per se. But, if you can weave in a few funny anecdotes about your bonds of friendship with the groom in a hilarious way, they would applaud you for making their day.

 

Given the fact that the wedding crowd loves really funny best man speeches, best men really struggle when asked to deliver a few remarks about the bride and groom.

 

Having seen that, let’s look at few crippling myths that holds most best men back from writing and delivering funny best man speeches or toasts and how to debunk them so you can make a very hilarious wedding best man toast even if you are as serious as a dead man!

 

Myth #1: You have to be a funny guy to come up with something humorous. It’s not true as most folks claim. You just have to slot in just one or two funny anecdotes to make it work.

 

Myth #2: You have to act like a clown to make everyone excited. Not entirely true. You just have to pick a few simple tricks (I am going to share a few with you) comedians employ in their craft and your speech will be as memorable as your first vacation abroad.

 

Funny best man speech or toast

Now,

Let’s Look At How To Put Your Thoughts And Feelings Into A Very Funny Best Man Speech Or Toast.

 

If you have no clue about such best man speeches or toasts are made, then you definitely have to watch a few video clips about how it’s done.

 

For example, if you don’t know where to start, you can do a quick youtube.com search for best man speeches or toast. I did just that and found these great videos.

 

Now, this is what I want you to do. Grab your pen and notepad and hit on the play button and watch it like once or more and jot down ideas you feel you can add to your wedding toast.

 

Here they are:

 

Funny Best Man Wedding Speech or Toast Video Example #1

 

Funny Best Man Wedding Speech or Toast Video Example #2

 

While video examples can help a great deal in the pre-writing process, written best man speech templates have several ideas you can borrow and adapt to your own script.

 

Well, in the next few lines, we are going to study two examples (best man speech for cousin/brother and a friend). Afterward, we will break it down bit by bit, find out the humorous elements in those templates, and then examine how we can use our discoveries to help you write an amazing best man wedding toast.

 

Let’s start by looking at the two samples. The first is by a cousin to the groom and the second from a friend to the groom. You may read both or simply scroll further down the page for your preference.

 

First and foremost, here’s a…

 

Funny Best Man Speech or Toast for Your Cousin or Brother

I discovered this at www.hitched.co.uk and I am glad to share it with you because it captures the essence of what the writing process is all about. 

Good Afternoon ladies and gentleman, for those of you who don't know me, I'm Stephen's cousin and Best Man, Nick. 

 

Before I begin, I'd like to ask Dena to put her hand on the table facing up and for Stephen to put his hand on top of hers. I'll explain later. And if can please hold it there until I after my speech.

 

I'd like to begin by thanking everyone for participating in this celebration. I would also like to thank Tony and Connie , and Maria and David, for without whom we not have Dena and Stephen.  I would also like to express our thanks to Zia and Uncle David for hosting us today.

 

I can't believe we are here today, it seems like yesterday Stephen and I were playing hockey in the back yard, stickball in the street, and locking ourselves in Stephen's room playing video games for hours on end. I remember my parents used to have to literally drag me away when it was time to go home. 

 

As Jayson had mentioned in the ceremony, it's been 10 years to the day since Stephen and Dena had their first date. Soon after that Dena was attending holiday and Sunday dinners over noni and nono's , but I never really got to spend a lot of time with the two of them until more recently. 

Hilarious best man toasts

Including hanging out in Cambridge, going out to dinner and at one point coming home from work playing, video games for hours on end. Just like old times. It was then I realized that my cousin had found someone that makes him happy and that we had gained a new addition to our family.

I am very proud to be best man here today. You are both generous, intelligent, and passionate people, and I know that your life together will be an inspiration to the rest of us. You are very well matched, and lucky to have found each other.

 

Now I'm assuming most of you are wondering why I asked the bride and groom to hold their hands together. Stephen, I just wanted to remind you that this is the last time you will have the upper hand.

 

Would you all please stand and raise your glasses in a toast to Dena and Stephen. To the Bride and Groom

Here’s our second example…

I also saw this at www.hitched.co.uk  

 

Hilarious Best Man Speech or Toast for Your Friend

Ladies and Gentlemen:

Good afternoon, for those who don't know me already, I'm Kiaran, otherly known as Ell's best man, yet I'm clearly not ‘Best’ enough to be given a seat at the top table!

 

I'm sure you would all agree that everything has been superb so far. Unfortunately, you can't expect perfection on a day like today, which is why you now have me for the next few minutes.

I know what you'll all be expecting from a best man speech, but before we get into any of Ells past, I'd just like to take this opportunity to thank him for his kind words towards the bridesmaids on doing an utterly fantastic job today, each one of you is looking lovely.  I'd also like to thank everyone else who has helped make this day special, you all know who you are and I'm positive these two couldn't have done it without you.

 

Malcolm and Anita, you've always been like a second set of parents to me – even if Malcolm doesn't reciprocate the feelings – but I'd just like to say a special thank you to you Anita from Ell and myself, you've done an unbelievable job with the wedding including being on hand with the hairspray all day. I know it's been tough but I'm pretty sure everyone else is thinking the same thing as me; Ross's hair is looking absolutely fabulous!

 

I know this must be an extremely nerve-racking moment as parents, seeing your little boy all grown up taking a huge step in life. I agree, delivering a best man speech is a huge deal I and hope I do you proud! Ell, I'm sure they're proud of you too…

 

Ashleigh, the beautiful bride, you and the dress look absolutely stunning (which does actually makes a pleasant change from the sweaty gym lycra I've become accustomed to the recent times we've seen each other). But even so, with your wit, beauty and elegance, I think everyone will agree that Ell is certainly punching above his weight.

 

I've known Ell for a long time now; it's around 10 years since we started playing American football together back in school. Not much has changed from being 13 to be honest; he's still 6ft 4, very immature and those shovels he calls hands certainly haven't gotten any smaller!

 

But it wasn't until I went to college that we became really close friends, back in the days of orange Wednesday ‘man dates’ and Friday nights at Kong sampling Darlington's finest… beer and spirits that is!

 

Him and me both struggled to catch a cold let alone any of the opposite sex! I know a big part of the best man speech is to laugh and joke at the groom's expense by filling you in about all the stupid and embarrassing things he's done, but I think I might have to try and reign this one in a little bit, just so the guy can still look you all in the eyes after I'm finished.

 

I'm sure he wouldn't be overly pleased if I spoke about the time he broke into my Uni halls by climbing through a neighbour's kitchen window. And I shouldn't really mention when I picked him up from a night out and had the pleasure of explaining to a local bobby why a steaming 19 year old was hanging out of my passenger window to after getting pulled over.

Funny  lines for best man speech

But there's one thing for certain, I wouldn't dream of embarrassing the lad by detailing his little hot tub accident, some things are just off limits! Ell – you know you've dodged a bullet here!

So with a few incidents only briefly being mentioned, maybe there are some things that I can talk about openly without Ashleigh suddenly regretting saying the phrase ‘I Do’.

 

He's done some daft things over the years; only 4 weeks ago he managed to walk 10 miles home after the first night of the stag do wearing only one shoe! Venturing through moss side during the early hours of the morning wasn't a very clever idea either, although he did tell me he met some lovely bluds and crips that gave him directions home.

 

I must say however; spraying a fire extinguisher all over the walls of my uni flat didn't score him very highly with the security blokes! Ell, you do actually still owe me for that btw! We can just call it quits if you like though; mines a double rum and coke and I'll get everyone else's put onto a tab behind the bar for you.

 

But one particular highlight however has to be crashing his first car into the curb and completely smashing up its front axle. This was due to him having to swerve to avoid a lorry pulling out of a junction..… Well at least that's what he told his dad anyway! In fact, he was racing a mate through the industrial estate trying to overtake on a 90 degree bend. If only Malcolm knew that then, after he'd got his hands on you, you'd of struggled to make it to 18 let alone your wedding day!

 

But then what about the limited number of girlfriends before Ashleigh, and when I say limited I do mean zero, there was always the thought that maybe Ell valued our friendship a little more than me if you catch my drift.

 

I remember biking up to High Conny; we took a load of food a drink for a BBQ just thinking it would be a good laugh to camp out for the night. It ended with us sharing a single duvet, on probably one of the coldest nights I've ever experienced in my life, which obviously wasn't a pleasant experience.

 

Although I must say I did actually enjoy being little spoon, it was quite comfy being cradled by Bigfoot for the night. But before anyone jumps to any conclusions, yes we might be best mates, but we don't quite share the same relationship as Jake Gyllenhall and Heath Ledger in Brokeback Mountain, I'd just like to clear that up!

So as soon as Ashleigh appeared on the scene, it was nice to be reassured that I was never going to be asked by him to wear a diamond ring, so thanks for that Ashleigh!

I'm not sure if many people know this, but Ell and Ashleigh getting together in the first place wasn't by chance or fate as some people might think. Ell put some serious ground work in a good while before I even think she knew his name. Nights out in Newcastle always ended up with him mysteriously getting lost from the group or disappearing from clubs like something out of a Houdini magic trick.

 

Little did I know that old Casanova over there used to make his way up to Tiger Tiger, which is where Ashleigh worked at the time, just purely so he could order a drink from her as an excuse for a chat!

Well I do tell a lie there, he actually didn't dare speak to her, so usually just stared creepily whilst getting served by another bartender. But look at them both now, newlyweds about to embark on their future journey with each other, some may call that true loves calling, I just call it stalking.

 

Now with all this being said and jokes aside, Ell, it was a genuine privilege to be asked to play the part of best man at your wedding. You've always been there for me no matter what; to offer a helping hand or a shoulder to cry on when needed, so there was no way on earth I wouldn't have been here for you today.

 

This a proud day for me, not just to see a best friend, but almost a brother, sat next to the girl of his dreams, newly wed and ready to start their next chapter of life together. I know you will both make each other smile from laughter and stay warm hearted with love in the years to come.

So it is now that I ask you all to join me in raising a glass to toast for one last time.

 

I wish you both a lifetime of joy and happiness together, and may this day be the beginning of many special memories you look back on in years to come as husband and wife.

To the newlyweds, Mr & Mrs Holt!

M6 (1)

Now, let’s get started by taking inspiration from both examples and elsewhere where necessary. Just pick up a pen and notepad and get yourself ready to make notes as we look at how you can make your speech funny with some incredibly funny tips and ideas.

 

First off, this simple idea can make your opening remarks hilarious.

 

I got it from the first example.

‘’Good Afternoon ladies and gentleman, for those of you who don't know me, I'm Stephen's cousin and Best Man, Nick. 

Before I begin, I'd like to ask Dena to put her hand on the table facing up and for Stephen to put his hand on top of hers. I'll explain later. And if can please hold it there until I after my speech.’’

 

Don’t you think the guests will love every bit of it if we change that extract into this short narrative?

 

Before I begin, I'd like to ask (insert name of the bride here) to put her hand on the table facing up and for ((insert name of the groom here) to put his hand on top of hers.  Now I'm assuming most of you are wondering why I asked the bride and groom to hold their hands together. (insert name of the groom here), I just wanted to remind you that this is the last time you will have the upper hand since in a good marriage, women always have the upper hand…

Do you realize how personal that is?

 

Second….

  • Imagine grabbing the microphone and introducing yourself like this guy did.

 

‘’ Hello everyone…this is Mat and I am the oldest, wisest brother of the groom. My brother gave me the nickname Dan The Rabbit when I was five years old because he claims I have the biggest ear in the family!( frown) That’s my claim to fame….Now, let me ask you this: (Groom stands)…Who has the biggest ear? Just compare mine to his …You be the judge!’’

 

I am sure you almost fell off your chair when you read that, right?  That’s not all…

  • What if you changed the order of things a bit? For example, if the groom is getting married to a lady from another country where English is not widely spoken, you can learn how to greet the audience in French and English.

 

That might not make your introduction very funny per se, but it sure would make the guests giggle in excitement and appreciate the fact that you greeted them in their native language.

 

You might also consider bringing this idea on board to kick start your speech on a humorous note.

  • After you’ve introduced yourself in the traditional way or in a more creative way like I showed you above, you can begin by saying: ''I promise that this is going to be the funniest yet shortest best man speech you’ve ever heard or read….Wait a minute…Did I say read? I don’t think you would love to read my wedding speech, right? (comments: As you say that, you can roll down a very long sheet of paper with words on it and jokingly say:

''Seriously, did you believe me when I said that I am going to deliver a short speech considering that he’s been my best friend and brother for 30 years? 

I was actually looking for a movie director to make a tribute (turn and look at him in a sheepish manner)….did I say a triiiiibute? I must be going a crazy…Can someone send me to the Emergency Room...I seriously need help…

 

My comments: If you can employ and rehearse this technique very well, you will get everyone laughing and talking about your speech all night long. If I may ask: which of those ideas do you think can help you start on a cheerful note? Just go for it now!

 

 

At this point, let’s dive deep by coming up with ideas about…

 

How To Write The Body Or Outline Of Your Funny Best Man Toast

 

At the onset of this write-up, I mentioned that your speech about the groom shouldn’t be funny from the start to the end. But, it should be interspersed with a few good memories to make it stand out. This is also true of what you write about your relationship with the bride and groom.

To make the body of your presentation lively and fun, you can throw in a few incidents you remember about the great time you have had with your friend or brother.

 

You can easily do that by doing a little brainstorming before writing down answers to the following questions (which you can later use to craft a rough draft) Let’s give our brain something to ponder. As always, grab a pen and note pad and scribble down a few thoughts here and there by providing responses to these queries.

 

  • When did you become friends with the groom?
  • What’s his impact on your life?
  • When did he start talking to you about the bride to you? Or did he keep it a secret?
  • Has the bride being a blessing in his life? If yes, How so? Just write it down
  • What would you like to tell the bride?
  • How do they complement each other?

 

Now, let’s branch out into this…

How To Write The Closing Remarks of Your Humorous Best Man Toast

The examples we’ve seen earlier gives us a good idea about how to end on a memorable note. However, I am going to add a few ones to those views.

 

First, you may just end with a toast to the bride and groom.

See this example from the above text:

So it is now that I ask you all to join me in raising a glass to toast for one last time.

 

Second, a few best wishes can also be adequate if you are struggling to wrap up.

Here’s another example:

‘’I wish you both a lifetime of joy and happiness together, and may this day be the beginning of many special memories you look back on in years to come as husband and wife.

To the newlyweds, Mr & Mrs Holt!’’

Third, you can conclude with a rhyming love poem and your best man toast will be very, very memorable.

I once read this quote by Confucius that says that by three methods we may learn wisdom. First, by reflection, which is noblest; Second, by imitation, which is easiest; and third by experience, which is the bitterest.

 

Learning by imitation is what most of us do. From childhood, we begin to imitate our parents and others which ultimately give birth to experience and reflection.

Tips and ideas for best man speech examples

When it comes to writing a best man speech or toast, you just have to properly copy the examples of those who have gone ahead of you so you don’t end up worrying so much about what to say and what not to say.

 

Nonetheless, when most wedding speakers find themselves in panic mode and realize belatedly that they don’t have a best man speech or toast ready yet, they just resort to copying the contents of best man speech templates without making the most out of them.

 

To make the most out of any speech example, you first need to know a few things about it. There are actually two kinds of best man speech examples or templates. Do you have any idea what they are? Ok…let me help you out.

 

They include:

  • Video examples
  • Well-written examples

 

First, video examples come in handy if you are looking to find some creative inspiration or an idea about how to start your best man speech. For example, if you have never made a best man speech before, you should watch a few best man speech videos so you can get an idea about how such wedding tributes are delivered.

 

And by the way, here are two great examples you can watch and learn from and adapt to your best man wedding speech for the bride and groom.  I would urge you to relax and watch them once or twice for additional insights.

 

Best man examples (speech video#1)

Best man templates (speech video#2)

 

Second, there are also written best man speech templates or examples. In the next few lines, we are going to look at two of such examples and then analyze the second example so you can figure out what goes into the writing process.

 

Please note: If you are not a friend of the groom (but his brother), then I would recommend that you scroll down the page for the next example. If you are not pressed for time, however, you can review both pieces for more ideas and tips. Thank you

 

Here it is:

#1: Best man speech example for best friend

 

Hello ladies and gents for an occasion such as this I'd like to start by laying down a couple of rules.  Firstly, no heckling please. (Tim).  And secondly, if you do have a mobile phone … please, leave it switched on; keep yourselves entertained.  

 

I think if you keep your spirits high and your expectations low, everyone will be happy!! As Gareth just said I'm Ashlee and I'm the best man today. I hope your all, enjoying this wonderful wedding celebration today. I know I will once this is over!!

 

I would like to echo what has already been said and compliment our beautiful bride. I must say that Gemma looks absolutely beautiful today. Gareth is one very lucky man. Surprisingly, Gareth has scrubbed up quite well himself, even if he did copy my outfit…

 

Can I just give a special mention to our two bridesmaids Kelly & Angelina for helping to get Gemma here today? I am reliably informed that when she woke up this morning and realized she was marrying Gareth she put up a struggle so well done girls…You all so look fantastic 

How to write best man speech with best man speech templates

I would also like to thank both sets of parents, Mari & Martin and Julie who have shown great support to the happy couple in the build-up to this special day. You have played an in portent role on this momentous occasion. Thank you

 

Let us not forget our Ushers for the day, Michele & Christian. I know Gareth was worried about them not being up to such an important task, however after weeks of practicing and a bout of repetitive strain disorder, I am sure you all agree they more than excelled there selves at pointing at chairs today…well done boys 

 

I'd all so like to say a big thank you to mine and Gareth's beautiful children. Noah & Kiki. They have been amazing today…and we are Very proud parents, I can't believe we are at this point in our lives and celebrating their wedding, I was once told that you never truly find out what happiness is until you get married… and then it's too late!

 

When Gareth asked me to be his best man, naturally I had many questions. What had I done to deserve such an honour? Who had dropped out? Was I really the best he could come up with? Could I turn the job down and still expect an invitation to stuff myself and get drunk at his expense?

 

In the end, having accepted the role, I'm pretty happy with the way things went today. From a best man's perspective, everything went smoothly. For starters, I got him to the venue on time, He also arrived sober, an achievement which shouldn't be underestimated with his track record… And most importantly in this time of economic uncertainty, I successfully resisted the urge to post the wedding rings to Cash for Gold and do a runner. So well done me…

 

Gareth is equally impressed, he told me earlier I have done that good a job I have got the gig for his next wedding, which was nice of him…

So…Some of you may look at Gareth sitting here today and think ‘hasn't that lad done well for himself?’

 

He has married the woman of his dreams, has a good career, but how he still works in travel is Beyond me, when  he first started out in travel house  he Had a bit of confusion pronouncing places, let me give you a few  examples. Lesboss.… The correct term is Lesbos, another one was port of Tourette's, in Ibiza… rally place was port of torrent and how about this one…indianopcilops.… In America To you or me it's Indianapolis

 

Any away I have a list here….

*drop roll* 

Gareth also gave me strict instructions not to talk about certain things. 

*Smile* 

So There's no way I was allowed to talk about the time he got so badly burnt in Ibiza it took the contents of the girls make up bags to  make him look normal again and not forgetting the time he took enough Imodium to plug up India…oh sorry got that wrong that was Gemma.

 

And there's absolutely no way I was allowed to tell you  about  The time  we got attacked and had to run home from the kebabs shop but  he still managed to save his burger but had to go to the hospital with concussion the next morning.

Or the time a friendly stranger gave him somewhere to stay in Cardiff after missing the last train only to realise they weren't that friendly hence their tooth brush doing a lap of the toilet bowl. 

 

And there's Absolutely no way I can tell you about the holiday he took to Mexico  where he was caught trying to smuggle fifteen Cartons of fags through customs, and ended up getting very well acquainted with one of the customs officers

So what else I can I tell you about Gareth  It's traditional to dish the dirt on the groom's past girlfriends during the best man's speech… but I'm not going to do that. For a start, I think it's wrong – cheap, and tacky. Secondly, how would it make sweet, innocent Gemma feel, having the reputation of the man she loves dragged through the filth of his former sordid little conquests..?

 

Thirdly, and perhaps most importantly, Gareth's never actually had a girlfriend before Gemma, so there's really very little dirt to dish. Not that he didn't try to meet girls, of course – there were years and years of wasting his time on Dodgy pickup lines …speed dating.…

And he even Tried Internet chat rooms but in the end he did meet someone, and that someone was Gemma, and she was rite under His nose the whole time, It started off as friends and then best friends and then blossomed into a wonderful relationship.

 

I have known Gareth for many years and feel I know him better than most people. I can honestly say I have never seen him happier than when he is with Gemma. I am so pleased that he has found such a wonderful person who he can spend the rest of his life with.

 

Gareth has been a great friend to me and we've had some excellent times together and I'm sure we'll have more in the future and it's been a Privilege to be his best man today.

 

You will be happy to know that we are coming to the end of the speeches. I can tell that everybody is having a great time here today and this is mainly down to the weeks and months of planning by Gareth and Gemma. They have done an incredible job to make it such a special day.

I will end with a quote for all you romantics out there.

 

“Marriage is not about finding a person you can live with, it's about finding the person you can't live without.”  Gareth has definitely found that person.

So it now gives me immense pleasure not to mention relief to invite you all to stand once more and raise your glasses in a toast, to love, laughter and happy ever after, to Mr & Mrs Rees

Now, let’s look at…

                    

#2: Best man speech template for brother

 

Good afternoon. Thank you all for attending this special occasion in honor of Ross and Nicola. First, on behalf of the Maid of Honor and bridesmaids, thank you Ross for your kind words. Just to echo what Ross, has already said, I would like to say that the bridesmaids are looking absolutely stunning and are only outshone, and quite rightly so, by Nicola who I'm sure you'll all agree is looking sensational.

 

I'd also like to pass on an extra special thanks to the bridesmaids for getting Nicola to the church today – I understand she put up quite a fight!

I’m sure you'll all agree that the wedding was beautiful and the entire wedding party did an amazing job! SO, before I begin my assassination of Ross's character, I would just like to thank ushers, Bob, Dave and Johnny, the Minister, florists, photographers, caterers, and everyone else involved for your hard work in making this day a huge success!

 

No doubt by now most of you know me as Fraser, however my full name is actually “Fraser would you like a drink!”, so I'd appreciate if you could use this when you come to say hello later on. Now, as you all know, I'm Ross's best man and I'd like to start by thanking Ross for asking me to be part of this special day.

I know they've both put a tremendous amount of effort into the planning of this wedding, especially Nicola, and I can only hope that, apart from this speech, everything else will have exceeded their expectations.– I can only say in my defence that being Ross's younger brother he has played a large part in developing my sense of humour, so if this speech is disappointing, then please feel free to blame Ross!!

 

Now no body ever pays the groom a compliment, so Ross, I'd like to say you're looking quite dashing today and the lion tamers at Tony and Guy have done a great job of styling the wild beast that is your hair. As you all know, marriage is for better or for worse, which is quite appropriate as Ross couldn't have done any better and Nicola couldn't have done any worse.

 

No really, Ross has done very well for himself marrying a great girl like Nicola- I mean, you should have seen some his last girlfriend- dogs- all of them, PIG UGLY.pause, Although may I say, how delighted we are to have so many of them here today!

 

Right, well the first thing a best man is supposed to do is to tell witty anecdotes about the groom, to let the bride’s family discover what type of man their daughter has just married. Now, after having a long think about this I discovered that nothing funny has ever happened to Ross.

 

Well, what I mean by that is that all his funny stories fall into the “unsuitable category” which I can’t discuss on his wedding day.… I mean, it would be highly inappropriate if I told you about the time Ross was on rugby tour, and after drinking too much cider, opened the window of his 3rd floor room and was sick- all over my father who was standing 40ft below!!!

Best man speech toast examples

And I also can’t talk about the time Ross phoned mum at 6am in the morning from America to announce that he was locked up in Jail in South Carolina and needed his mummy to pay his bail– but really, I can’t get into that one, all I can say is that it in an offence to urinate in the streets of America!!

 

Now, anyway, as I said, I can talk about any of that. So, you're probably all still wondering what type of person Ross is?? Well, the words the words funny, caring, generous and handsome come to mind….he's a decent bloke.

 

However, BE WARNED!.. Ross HENDERSON is not a forgiving person . Everyone may find this a bit of a shock but Ross still holds a grudge for something I did when I was 4 years old which very almost resulted in me not being his best man today . Now, I don't remember this, but Ross claims that I took his model “Dukes of Hazzard” car- General Lee- which was his prized possession, and that I smashed it to bits with a hammer.

 

Now, Ross still gives me a hard time about this, and I really don't want him to hold this grudge against me for the rest of our lives, so Ross, I would like to present you with this .… A brand new, General Lee which I hope you and Nicola pass on to your son one day . I just hope for his sake that he doesn't ever damage it , otherwise, I've got a feeling you'll be putting him up for adoption !

Now, I can see you're all getting hungry so Im going to start wrapping this up. Before I sit down though I need to read out one very important message from some people who couldn't be here today.

Now Ross, I know you won’t be wanting me to read this one in front of your new wife, but I promised Crystal and the other girls that I would, so here goes:

“Ross, We hope you still visit us every week and wish you all the best in your marriage. With Lots of Love, The Girls at Sandys Sauna and Massage Parlour in Glasgow” – I think you've got some explaining to do Ross!!!

 

Finally, some advice for the groom: now, this should be easy for you to remember : married life can be compared to football. All you need to do is be fully committed every week, and make sure you score every weekend. Also, remember playing away from home WILL result in Nicola putting you on the transfer market.

 

Ladies and Gentlemen, it gives me immense pleasure to invite you all to be upstanding, raise your glasses and join me in a toast to Ross and Nicola. May your love be modern enough to survive the times, but old fashioned enough to last forever,

Ladies and Gentlemen, to the new, Mr and Mrs Henderson, Ross and Nicola!!!!

Please roll up your selves and let’s hit the road running….

Like every writing piece out there, you can infer from both write-ups that both examples have three basic compositions:

  • Your opening or introductory remarks
  • The body or outline or structure of your groom wedding toast
  • The ending or concluding remarks

Beginning with the introductory remarks, we are going to look at each point one step at a time.

First; your introductory remarks. Your introductory or opening lines is more like your words on your first date. On a first date, you definitely have to put a great deal of thought into what you say so that you come across as someone who is witty and fun to be around.

Again, if you want to make a good first impression on your first date, you might want to tell stories that can make that initial experience very interesting.

So it is with your opening lines. Right off the bat, it should be engaging, entertaining, and unique so that the wedding audience will crave for more.

It is not uncommon for best men to start their speeches in this manner:

‘’Good afternoon. Thank you all for attending this special occasion in honor of Ross and Nicola. First, on behalf of the Maid of Honor and bridesmaids, thank you Ross for your kind words. Just to echo what Ross, has already said, I would like to say that the bridesmaids ….’’

While that falls in line with wedding etiquette, there are also varied ways to kick your speech off on a very happy note.

 

Before we dive into that, I have this mini-assignment for you. I would like you to jot down names of these individuals.

  • The bridesmaid or maid of honor
  • The groomsmen or other best men
  • The name of the groom
  • The mom and dad of the groom(this applies if you are the groom’s brother)

You’ve done that, right? Now, what do you want to tell each of those personalities? Taking inspiration from that short extract or the opening lines of both examples, just write down a first draft for your introduction.

 

Having seen that; let’s look at how to start your speech with a bang.

First, if you have an amazing voice, you can imitate what this guy did by starting off with a well-known song and everyone will join in singing it. Whatever song you go for, just make sure it’s fun and very easy to sing along to.

 

Second, you can start on a romantic or emotional note. For this to work, you need to weave in at least a love or marriage or even a friendship quote.

Here are three examples you can slot into your script.

  • ‘’ Love at first sight is easy to understand; it’s when two people have been looking at each other for a lifetime that it becomes a miracle’’- Sam Levenson
  • “A happy marriage is a long conversation which always seems too short.” – Andre Marois

 

Third, just start with a story if you really don’t know how to start. This approach works all the time because we all love good stories.

Here’s an example from the second speech.

Well, what I mean by that is that all his funny stories fall into the “unsuitable category” which I can’t discuss on his wedding day.… I mean, it would be highly inappropriate if I told you about the time Ross was on rugby tour, and after drinking too much cider, opened the window of his 3rd floor room and was sick- all over my father who was standing 40ft below!!!

And I also can’t talk about the time Ross phoned mum at 6am in the morning from America to announce that he was locked up in Jail in South Carolina and needed his mummy to pay his bail– but really, I can’t get into that one, all I can say is that it in an offence to urinate in the streets of America!!

 

Fourth, you may start your speech with why he asked you to be his best man like we saw earlier.

‘’ When Gareth asked me to be his best man, naturally I had many questions. What had I done to deserve such an honour? Who had dropped out? Was I really the best he could come up with? Could I turn the job down and still expect an invitation to stuff myself and get drunk at his expense……?

M4 (1)

Now, let’s see

How to Write the Body or Outline of Your Groom Wedding Toast

When you get to the heart of both stories, you will realize that the body of the speech centers on your friendship with the groom.

As you know by now, I am an action taker, so let’s try to put something together about your relationship with the groom. 

Here are some questions to help you get out your best ideas onto that sheet of paper.

  • When did you first meet the groom? Write down your thoughts here…. (If you are the older brother of the groom, you might want to consider putting down your thoughts about how you felt when he was born.
  • What were initial impression(s) when you first met him?
  • Do you recall fun and fond memories of the time you’ve spent together? On Vacation? At Sports Events? Weddings? Etc.
  • When did you first hear about the bride?
  • How has he become a much better person since his wife came into his life?

 

Writing your answers next to each question ensures that you have some content to help you write down a few ideas about your bonds of friendship.  So, just reflect and jot down a few things you recall about the great times you’ve had together.

 

Finally, let’s look at…

How To Use Best Man Speech Templates To Write Your Closing Remarks

Let’s figure it out by taking cues from both examples:

Here’s the conclusion of the first example:

‘’ I will end with a quote for all you romantics out there.

“Marriage is not about finding a person you can live with, it's about finding the person you can't live without.”  Gareth has definitely found that person….to stand once more and raise your glasses in a toast, to love, laughter and happy ever after, to Mr & Mrs Rees 

 ‘’

The closing lines from the second example

‘’ Finally, some advice for the groom: now, this should be easy for you to remember : married life can be compared to football…Also, remember playing away from home WILL result in Nicola putting you on the transfer market.‘’

Those remarks give an indication of how to wrap your speech. But there are of course several ideas that can help you end with a bang as well.

 

Here they are…

First, if you can actually write a simple advice and then turn into a song everyone can sing along to, then your toast will be an unforgettable experience.

 

Second, if this is Christian wedding, you can end your tribute with a prayer or a few words words of wisdom from the bible.

 

Third, you may end by dedicating to the couple a poem about love.

Short Best Man Speech or Toast: Here’s An Easy-To-Follow Guide to Writing a Short and Sweet Best Man Wedding Speech for Your Brother or Friend

M4 (1)

After going through these easy-to-digest tips and tricks on how to write a short best man speech or toast, you won’t have to worry about what to say about the groom and the bride on their wedding day.

 

Just give me a few minutes of your time and I will walk you through everything you need to know about…

  • How to write a short best man wedding toast even if you don’t know what to say and what not to say
  • How you can model your wedding tribute after amazing best man speech templates
  • How to write a very memorable best man toast even if you have no idea where to start from

 

When it comes to writing a great best man wedding speech, nothing beats a well-composed toast that truly captures the love story of the bride and groom in a very short amount of time.

 

Nonetheless, the overwhelming majority of best men rather do a terrible job when they are asked to asked to say what they know about their friend or brother within a reasonable time frame.

You can’t blame them because with so many things competing for their attention, squeezing some time to say what needs to be said succinctly can be a real struggle.

 

If you find yourself struggling to come up with great ideas for your best man speech toast, then I have good news for you.

The good news is you first have to come up with a solid pre-writing plan and stick to it from start to end if you really want your short groom speech to resonate with the wedding audience.  

 

Best man speech examples

Here’s How to Go about It.

First off, you have to figure out where to get good ideas. A quick internet search will yield several results. But most of the stuff you will find is average at best.

To save time and effort, you just have to head over to a video sharing platform like youtube.com and just watch a couple of videos like those you will find below to immerse yourself in the experience of speaking before a group of people so to speak.

Next, you have to pick a style for your presentation which will undoubtedly influence the theme and tone of your remarks. For example, if you are known to be a naturally funny person, then you should think about making a funny best man speech. Another option would be to make it emotional if you wear your heart on your sleeves.

 

If you have no speaking style in mind, you can settle on a narrative piece where you get to talk about how you met the groom, how your friendship has evolved over the years, memories of spending time together, as well as when you first met the bride.

 

If you are a master storyteller, you can possibly weave together a very beautiful speech using a combination of two or more styles which will make your groom wedding speech very unforgettable. On the whole, you just have to go with something that you are comfortable with and not what you think it’s trending because your words are a reflection of how you are.  

 

Having seen that; here are two short and hilarious best man speech examples. Now, I would like us to read through them very carefully. Afterward, we will break the second example down bit by bit so we can figure what goes into writing a great best man wedding toast.

 

The first example is by a friend to another friend. If you are the brother of the groom, you may scroll down to read the second sample. If you can make some time to read both examples, that would be great.

 

Here you go:

 

Short Best Man Speech for a Friend Example/Template

 

“Good afternoon everyone – for those of you that don’t know me, my name’s Scott and after all these years it’s nice that Steve has finally admitted that I’m the best man!

I hope you’ve all had a lovely time so far and continue to have a fantastic time as the day and evening goes by – I’d also like to apologise in advance if I, in any way, ruin that in the next five minutes.

 

Talking of five minutes, it’s often said that the best man’s speech is the worst five minutes of the groom’s life – I’m also told (by reliable sources) that the worst five minutes of Laura’s life comes later on when all the guests have gone home!

 

I know from personal experience that it’s a difficult task choosing a best man, I’m still not sure about my choice four years on eh Steve?! But with Steve, like most things in life, it became more difficult as time went on – his first choice was his funniest friend but unfortunately he said no, so then he thought he’d choose his cleverest friend but again, unfortunately the offer was declined.

 

At the third attempt he turned to his most handsome friend but sadly it was a no yet again and at this point as you can imagine Steve was getting pretty desperate – that’s when my phone rang! And, to be honest, hearing Steve’s quivering little voice on the phone I decided I couldn’t possibly turn him down for a fourth time!

 

As part of my job today I get the task of saying a few words about today’s main man – I can honestly say that he’s one of the most handsome, most funny men you’ll ever meet and I’m proud to call him my friend. So if you if bump into him today – where’s Lloyd? Today is his birthday so please buy him a drink – happy birthday Lloyd!

 

Now, I was asked by Steve and Laura to be careful with any content that may be a little risqué and, in particular, remove any innuendos – so I just wanted to reassure you both that I’ve been through it carefully and vetted it but if I do come across anything I’ve missed I’ll whip it out as quickly as I can!

 

In all seriousness I’ve known Steve now for around 18 years since I interviewed him for a job as a 16/17 year old – he turned up late, with the very popular ‘curtain’ hairstyle, proudly wearing his Arsenal tie and he somehow managed to convince me that I’d found a gem. I’d like to point out that several times over the first few years I was given the opportunity by the HR department to get rid of him, but somehow those eyes were still convincing me otherwise.

 

Now because most of the stories I could tell about Steve over the years would no doubt incriminate myself, again I decided to be careful about what I would say – so I definitely won’t be telling you about the times he used his ‘one phone call’ to tell me he couldn’t make it to work, I definitely won’t be telling you about his love of urinating in public places when under the influence (in particular on my neighbour’s car!) and I definitely won’t tell you about the time I got a call from head office to say that Steve had some charges for extras against his room whilst away on a training course – he swore blind, as he does when under pressure, that it was for a cigar but it wasn’t for him.

 

If I’m honest the cigar sounded a little pricey at 20 quid – I’ll leave it up to you to decide what you think he thought would make his stay away from home a little more exciting!

Best man tips and ideas

So you can tell by looking at Steve that not a lot has changed really – although unlike most people he’s actually lost weight over the years I’ve known him, quite a lot to lose at one point as I recall Steve?! And over those years I think it’s fair to say we’ve got into a few scrapes and one way or another we’ve always been there for each other when things have been tough – I’m proud to call you my friend and long may it continue!

 

Now, despite what I said before things have definitely changed for him since he got together with Laura 5 years ago, particularly over the last 18 months when their daughter came along – he’s a brilliant Dad and I’m sure that he’ll be a brilliant husband too!

I’m also impressed that he’s chosen to whisk Laura away on honeymoon in the UK – North Wales isn’t it Steve?…oh ok, I obviously got confused when he said he was going to Bangor for two weeks after the wedding!

 

I could honestly stand here and take the mick out of Steve all day long but I could definitely do with a beer now – although I do just want to impart one last bit of wisdom on you Steve… so, if Laura could just place her hand on the table, palm down… etc.

How does that feel Steve? I can personally guarantee you that will be the last time you ever have the upper hand so make the most of it while you can!

 

On behalf of the bridesmaids, Claire and Isla, I would like to thank Steve & Laura for asking us to be a part of your special day – I genuinely hope, and I know that you will be very happy together, please look after him Laura because he struggles to look after himself at times!

So if I could ask you all to join me in a toast – TO THE HAPPY COUPLE, THE BRIDE AND GROOM, STEVE AND LAURA!!”

Now, let’s switch over to our next example:

 

Short Best Man Speech For a Brother

Hello everyone… one second! Rock, paper, scissors.

I guess I'm going first then!  Wow what a great couple of speeches we have just heard. Well done to Steve and Paul.

So… introductions! My name is Chris and for those of you who don't know me I'm Steve's long suffering older Brother. First things first, I would just like to draw your attention to the 5 full shot glasses in front of Steve, this is because Steve has a big mouth and can't help getting involved.

This is a preventative measure to ensure this doesn't happen. If Steve interjects at any point then his forfeit is to ‘do a shot’.  Claire I apologise if this effects ‘later on’, but needs must!

 

But before I start with the customary duty of giving Steve an uncomfortable few minutes, it is part of the official duty of one of the best men to thank the father of the Bride Paul on behalf of the bridesmaids for his kind words, a for having them play a part in this special day. I have to say they all look wonderful and have done an excellent job.  And the ushers – what good looking chaps they are, they must have great parentage!

 

Indeed the bridesmaids are only eclipsed by Claire herself, who, I'm sure you'll all agree looks absolutely stunning. Now I did ask for a microphone for this speech but was told one was not available. So if you struggle to hear me at the back, the silence from the front should reassure you that you are not missing out on anything!

 

I would like to start by talking about Steve's early love life!!  Now before any of you think this is a big NONO at a wedding.  I have cleared it with Clare a she is fine with it.  At Junior School Steve was ‘desperate’ for a girlfriend so would ask pretty much the whole school to go out with him every day. 

 

Until one fateful day a girl said yes: Shelley Elson was her name, Steve was instantly besotted. Being 8 and in love every time we went anywhere, on holiday, day trips away.… He would have to bring Shelley back a prezzie! 

 

This went on for about 2 months, until one day Shelley got tired of this over affection and dumped him at school by bringing everything he had ever bought her and Dumping it in the middle of the school playground. (Pause to see if Steve interjects!)  I bring this up today because I just want to let you know Steve that the staffs have been warned not to group the presents in a big pile. 

 

In case you have a panic attack!  I would like to add though, Clare, that this did make Steve put up a bit of a guard in future relationships but you have well and truly smashed that down!  So well done to you Clare, you now have a completely besotted wet blanket as a husband.

 

I knew Clare's Effect on Steve was instant because we actually met her!!  Not only met her, but within 2 weeks of them going out he couldn't wait to show his beautiful girlfriend off, and also couldn't help mentioning her age to all his mates several times, I think the only time he was kept quiet, but only for a couple of seconds was when I worked out that Clare was closer in age to my first born Olivia than himself.

 

But of course  I would like to point out though that age is but a number and Clare you are so much more mature than my little brother ever will be, and have domesticated him beyond mine and Helens’ imagination. 

The amount of times Helen and I would be watching x factor or some other sat night dross.  Our minds would wander after a glass of vino or two a I would say something like.  ‘When is Steve gonna (sing in style of boy zone)” find a girl settle down when is he gonna marry” ‘  then Helen would normally rudely interrupt by saying ‘Fi a GIRL are you sure?!!’  Anyway I digress a Helen you owe me a tenner!

 

Anybody that knows Steve will also know how much of a show off he is, Clare I seriously don't know how you manage to live with his constant need for messing around.  I remember on the return from my stag do to Budapest in 2007 I nearly thanked Steve for such a great stag do and nearly wished HIM good luck with HIS wedding he took over it so much. To be honest though Steve, I have never minded that one bit. I used to try and compete with you, but as hard as it is to admit as a big brother, you have always been light years ahead of me on entertainment. 

 

You make fries wherever you go.  You have that charisma and likability that escapes most people. You are a great listener (believe it or not). You have always been there for Mum and I, and a whole host of others, including most importantly the beautiful lady by your side today. 

From the two of yours ingenious ‘pitch black hide and seek games’ to your catching each other out, Clare's Gym drive springs to mind! To your travelling around the globe on amazing holidays, you 2 are made for each other.  And I am looking forward to seeing what other big life memories you can make together.

 

Now that was all far too mushy a sincere so I would like, before I end today, a pass you over to the 2 best man Nathan!! I would like to ask a question. Did anybody know that Steve is a rapper??

 

Well he is! Now people this is before Eminem, Snow even Vanilla Ice, yes Steve was busting lyrics back in the day before any of them, going under the pseudonym ‘Stylish Steve’, the rap itself went something like ‘I was walking down the street one day a then I saw a toad’, then something about the toad going on the road.  Lyrical genius, but the best bit was his sign off that he did after every rap, kind of like the rap version of jerry springer's final thought. 

 

Steve if you would like to stand up and give us that sign off as a fitting end for this speech.

“He's cool I'll second that, he's cool he's the king of the rap. Stylish Steve!”

(Get Steve to do a shot for talking)

Thanks everyone I think that sums him up.  He talks about himself in so many extra persons there, talk about loving yourself!!  But Claire I know his ego moved over big time when you walked into his life. 

Congratulations to you both, Steve it has been an honour being one of your best men.  Love you brother, and Love you Claire, welcome to the family!

 

I don’t know about you. But, I really like the second example because it sounds authentic and funny. At this point, you might be wondering how both writers came up with both funny groom speeches. You can also make it without trying so hard if you just follow this fail-proof idea.

 

The trick is to first figure out the foundation on which both templates reside. Reading through  both thoroughly gives an indication of its structure (which are both similar in tone and content)

 

They include these eight (8) bullet points: Attached to them are very short references and illustrations from both examples as well as mini-assignments to help you jot down your ideas with ease.

Ok…Let’s dive right into it…One step at a time.

  • Greetings/Salutation

Here’s an excerpt: “Good afternoon everyone – for those of you that don’t know me, my name’s Scott…’’

Mini-assignment: I think that’s so easy to write. So, I won’t comment any further on this one.

 

  • Your introductory remarks

 

Here are a few lines: ‘’

I would like to start by talking about Steve's early love life!!  Now before any of you think this is a big NONO at a wedding.  I have cleared it with Clare a she is fine with it…’’

 

Now, your mini-assignment: How would you like to start your groom speech? Start with a song? How about a story about your friend or brother? Just write it down.

  • Compliment the groom

 

Comment: You can compliment him on choosing an amazing life partner.  Otherwise, you can change a rather embarrassing story into something funny.

 

Here’s an example:

‘’… I would like to start by talking about Steve's early love life!!  Now before any of you think this is a big NONO at a wedding.  I have cleared it with Clare a she is fine with it.  At Junior School Steve was ‘desperate’ for a girlfriend…’’ 

 

Let’s try our hands on another mini-assignment: Do you have a few embarrassing stories you would like the wedding guests to know about your friend or brother?

How to write a best man speech

Wait a minute…Do you mind clearing it with the bride and groom first? Whatever it is, just make sure you make the most out of those stories else your friend or brother will be deeply embarrassed.

 

Your assignment: Just write down a memory or two about the groom.

Next…

  • Compliment the bride and groom together

 

Let’s first preview this snippet:

‘’ I knew Clare's Effect on Steve was instant because we actually met her!!  Not only met her, but within 2 weeks of them going out he couldn't wait to show his beautiful girlfriend off, and also couldn't help mentioning her age to all his mates several times, I think the only time he was kept quiet, but only for a couple of seconds… ‘’

 

Here’s something you can ponder about: Grab your pen and notepad and write down how the couple complement each other. You can use that as a starting point to write about the bride and groom.

 

Now, let’s look at another idea:

  • Thanking the bride and groom for including you in their wedding plans

Comment: I think you can easily pour your feelings into heart-felt words when you have to thank them for including you in their wedding and plans.

 

Let’s look at another tip…

  • Thanking the bridesmaid and say a few nice words about them

 

Please see an example below:

‘’ Indeed the bridesmaids are only eclipsed by Claire herself, who, I'm sure you'll all agree looks absolutely stunning.‘’

 

Your mini-assignment: Please write down a few words of gratitude to the bridesmaid for their help and support and compliment them if you will.

  • Thanking the groomsmen for supporting you and the groom throughout the wedding planning process

 

Comment: Write down their names and state why you are thanking them or simply say you are forever in their debt.

 

Finally, let’s look at what we’ve all been waiting for:

  • Talk about your relationship with the groom

Having witnessed the groom go through life all these years, it can be hard to know what to add to your groom speech and what not to say because you have so many wonderful memories about him.

 

To make things a little bit easier, you just have to reflect and provide answers to these questions:

  • How long have you known the groom?
  • How and when did you meet him?(not applicable if you are the brother of the groom…you just have to say you are his younger or older brother)
  • What has your friendship been like over the years?
  • What are some fond memories you have about him
  • How he’s gotten better since the bride came into his life?
  • How has your brother or friend been a blessing in your own life?

 

Here, once again, is your mini-assignment: Can you use answers to those questions to write a rough first draft?  Just give it a try and let me know how it goes.

Funny Best Man Speech Toast For Your Friend Or Brother

M4 (1)

 

Are you looking for very helpful but easy-to-follow tips and tips and ideas to help you write a funny best man toast for your friend or brother on his big day?

 

If you are, then just bear with me for just a little while and I will share with you everything you need to know about…

  • How to easily and quickly write a very funny best man speech even if you have never made someone laugh out loud you whole life
  • How to model your funny best man toast after best man speech examples and templates so you don’t struggle to organize your thoughts and feelings into captivating words
  • How to use simple tricks and techniques to get everyone cracking up with laughter without resorting to jokes and other clichés

 

First and foremost, let’s look a few limiting views about giving humorous best man toasts and how you can shatter the glass ceiling to deliver one of the best ever wedding toasts.

 

Start With This And End With It

 

If you want your performance to go down well, you need to believe in what you are going to say or do else nothing can really work for you. To be clear, you need to believe in yourself.

 

Whatever you wish for in life depends a great deal on your own set of beliefs. You cannot succeed if all you see around you is doubt and despair.

 

Funny best man for brother

 

I know you are probably wondering if you are going to excel because your mind has relayed a picture of a past incident where you panicked when you were asked to say a few words before a group of people.

Don’t let that bog you down! You are the product of your imagination, so believe you can and you will be a step away from delivering your toast with poise and flair.

 

It Doesn’t Have To Be This Way

A unique best man speech doesn’t need to be delivered with the aplomb of an actor or actress accepting an Oscar - as long as it is sweet, sincere, and special, you’re going to be a hit (with your best friend or brothers and of course, the ladies).

 

Leave The Past In The Past

Picture this - everyone’s having a good time, drinking, eating, and laughing at your jokes.

 

But then, the incident comes up - awkward glances are exchanged, tiny coughs fill the room, and you can almost hear the sound of crickets. If there is a surefire way to bring down the mood, it’s mentioning what should not be mentioned.

 

At any cost, please leave out the drunk bachelor trip shenanigans (don’t give your best friend’s Uncle Muriel a coronary), definitely avoid mentions of wild parties, and do not breathe a word about a past relationship.

 

All You Need Is A Single Story

A good speech is short and sweet. It shouldn’t be a 25-page novel that makes the audience wish they’d never stepped foot into that room.

 

Your best man speech shouldn’t be funny from start until finish. Just choose one or two hilarious anecdotes that are appropriate, stories that are easy to explain, share fond memories of your best friend or brother, and wind it up.  For example, if you sense that your speech is not funny enough,  you may paint your face in a funny way and don a bizarre wig or custom and you will get the wedding crowd beaming.

 

Here’s How to Get Ideas for Your Best Man Speech

There are two ways. From best man speech videos, and well-written examples. Let’s watch some video clips you can learn from and adapt to writing the structure of your speech.

 

Action Tip: Get a piece of paper or a sheet and pen and write down thoughts and phrases you would like to incorporate into your storyline as you watch these short clips.

So without further ado, let’s see how to write a best man speech for your friend or brother, shall we? If you are his brother, then, you may scroll down the page for a speech template from a brother to the groom and bride.

 

P.S   Both samples can help you know what to say and what not to say. So, my advice is to read the two and jot down ideas that you can adapt for your best man speech.

 

 

Funny Best Man Speech for Your Friend Example/Template

 

First, here’s an example for your friend. I found this at www.hitched.co.uk and I am glad to share it with you because it perfectly captures the essence of what the writing process is all about. 

 

“Good afternoon everyone – for those of you that don’t know me, my name’s Scott and after all these years it’s nice that Steve has finally admitted that I’m the best man!

 

I hope you’ve all had a lovely time so far and continue to have a fantastic time as the day and evening goes by – I’d also like to apologize in advance if I, in any way, ruin that in the next five minutes.

 

Talking of five minutes, it’s often said that the best man’s speech is the worst five minutes of the groom’s life – I’m also told (by reliable sources) that the worst five minutes of Laura’s life comes later on when all the guests have gone home!

 

I know from personal experience that it’s a difficult task choosing a best man, I’m still not sure about my choice four years on eh Steve?!

 

But with Steve, like most things in life, it became more difficult as time went on – his first choice was his funniest friend but unfortunately, he said no, so then he thought he’d choose his cleverest friend but again, unfortunately, the offer was declined.

 

At the third attempt he turned to his most handsome friend but sadly it was a no yet again and at this point, as you can imagine Steve was getting pretty desperate – that’s when my phone rang!

 

And, to be honest, hearing Steve’s quivering little voice on the phone I decided I couldn’t possibly turn him down for the fourth time!

 

As part of my job today I get the task of saying a few words about today’s main man – I can honestly say that he’s one of the most handsome, most funny men you’ll ever meet and I’m proud to call him my friend.

 

So if you if bump into him today – where’s Lloyd? Today is his birthday so please buy him a drink – happy birthday Lloyd!

 

Now, I was asked by Steve and Laura to be careful with any content that may be a little risqué and, in particular, remove any innuendos – so I just wanted to reassure you both that I’ve been through it carefully and vetted it but if I do come across anything I’ve missed I’ll whip it out as quickly as I can!

 

In all seriousness I’ve known Steve now for around 18 years since I interviewed him for a job as a 16/17-year-old – he turned up late, with the very popular ‘curtain’ hairstyle, proudly wearing his Arsenal tie and he somehow managed to convince me that I’d found a gem.

 

I’d like to point out that several times over the first few years I was given the opportunity by the HR department to get rid of him, but somehow those eyes were still convincing me otherwise.

 

 

Now because most of the stories I could tell about Steve over the years would no doubt incriminate myself, again I decided to be careful about what I would say – so I definitely won’t be telling you about the times he used his ‘one phone call’ to tell me he couldn’t make it to work, I definitely won’t be telling you about his love of urinating in public places when under the influence (in particular on my neighbour’s car!) and I definitely won’t tell you about the time I got a call from head office to say that Steve had some charges for extras against his room whilst away on a training course – he swore blind, as he does when under pressure, that it wasn’t for him.

 

So you can tell by looking at Steve that not a lot has changed really – although unlike most people he’s actually lost weight over the years I’ve known him, quite a lot to lose at one point as I recall Steve?!

Funny best man speech for friend

And over those years I think it’s fair to say we’ve got into a few scrapes and one way or another we’ve always been there for each other when things have been tough – I’m proud to call you my friend and long may it continue!

 

Now, despite what I said before things have definitely changed for him since he got together with Laura 5 years ago, particularly over the last 18 months when their daughter came along – he’s a brilliant Dad and I’m sure that he’ll be a brilliant husband too!

 

I’m also impressed that he’s chosen to whisk Laura away on honeymoon in the UK – North Wales isn’t it Steve?…oh ok, I obviously got confused when he said he was going to Bangor for two weeks after the wedding!

 

 

I could honestly stand here and take the mick out of Steve all day long but I could definitely do with a beer now – although I do just want to impart one last bit of wisdom on you Steve… so, if Laura could just place her hand on the table, palm down… etc.

 

How does that feel Steve? I can personally guarantee you that will be the last time you ever have the upper hand so make the most of it while you can!

 

On behalf of the bridesmaids, Claire and Isla, I would like to thank Steve & Laura for asking us to be a part of your special day – I genuinely hope, and I know that you will be very happy together, please look after him Laura because he struggles to look after himself at times!

So if I could ask you all to join me in a toast – TO THE HAPPY COUPLE, THE BRIDE AND GROOM, STEVE AND LAURA!!”

M5

 

Now, let’s look at the second example: 

Funny Best Man Speech for Brother Example/Template

I also found this at www.hitched.co.uk 

 

“For those who don’t know me, my name is Graham and I’m today’s best brother. I say best brother as there’s less competition in that category than in the best man competition. So if you like Craig’s speech better, then at least I still win something.

 

The last time I gave a speech at a joint event with my brother was at our 18th and 21st birthday party.  A good portion of the people here were at that event and you’ll be glad to know my speech uses ‘fabulous’ a lot less this time around.

 

Stuart and Demi, it’s an honour to stand up here today as one of the best men. I’m delighted for you both and I’m so glad we can celebrate with friends and family who have travelled from around the country. They’re all here to wish you well (and can’t wait for their free food and drink).

 

 

Let me tell you a bit about growing up with Stuart - we met in the 90s, back in a time where it was fine to dress your children in popper tracksuit bottoms. Stuart managed to pull his off as he was certainly the more athletic between us, whereas my bright yellow pair forever cemented me as our version of Augustus Gloop.

 

We had a great childhood and I was delighted to have a brother. We got on well - I used to get up early in the morning to let him out of his cot. I didn’t need to do this for long as he soon learned to get himself out and cause my parents no end of grief when he learned to walk. Unfortunately, their trick of sticking me in front of a TV with chocolate didn’t work so well on Stuart.

 

 

All the ornaments had to be hidden. Fast forward a couple of years and we’d be out playing in the streets having water fights and coming to the door absolutely drenched. We both also seemed to have quite the talent for winding up our neighbour Moira - bad enough on one occasion for her to phone the police on us for getting her plants wet!

 

 

We were lucky enough to go on plenty of day trips and holidays whilst we were growing up including trips up to Florida and the Dominican Republic. This is where some of our favourite embarrassing stories come from. The classic that we all still talk about to this day was in the Dominican Republic back when we were much younger so we were sharing a bed.

 

One morning I woke up and had the misfortune to discover that Stuart had wet the bed, left me in it and went into my mum and dad’s bed! He did this so much that the maids left a note saying they had put on plastic sheets for the remainder of our stay. His exploits didn’t stop there and I can remember when we each got the bunk bed/futon (that was all the rage at the time) and he wet the bed the first night! I remember mum raging down the phone to Trisha asking for the orange cleaner!

Best man speech for brother

There are a lot of other stories on this subject that can be exchanged for a gin and tonic at the bar. Cheers.

 

Stuart had always proven himself as the cheeky outgoing type but you wouldn’t have thought so when we went to some of the theme parks in Florida. Although the rollercoasters scared him, it was when he was met with any of the wonderful characters in Disney World in Florida that really got him going. Crying and screaming, he would refuse to go up to the Queen of Hearts to get her autograph. Watch The Rocky Horror Make-Up Show? Forget it.

 

I think we have Trisha to thank for this. She used to get our cousin Brian’s scary masks from his room when Stuart was misbehaving and jump out at him or chase him up the stairs. The other classic was her removing her false teeth which really scared him senseless!

 

I couldn’t come up here and not talk about the stag weekend either. We went to Krakow back in September with the first night ending up in a karaoke bar of all places.

 

Having Stuart up singing with absolutely no change in his tone or voice to Madonna’s Like A Virgin was amazing. This wasn’t even the best part as on the second night we dressed Stuart up as Princess Peach with the rest of us as Mario. Some of the Mario costumes were extremely dodgy too. We were like celebrities walking around Krakow that night with everybody wanting their picture taken with us.

 

And when I think back on it, it’s really amazing that the gay brother managed to get his straight brother to sing Madonna and dress up in drag for his stag weekend!

 

 I can’t thank you enough for how you haven’t changed one bit since the day I came out and I’m so grateful that you accepted it and get on so well with Simon. So here we are now, our families combined. We’ve already had a joint event and I had the most brilliant time at Christmas back at Stuart and Demi’s house.

 

 

We all played a friendly game of Cards Against Humanity, which for those of you who don’t know, is a game that you win by providing the funniest and/or most offensive answers to the questions asked.

 

Demi’s mum was a particular pro at this game and kept providing absolute belters for answers. Demi was far too embarrassed to even play along with us. I had to actually start writing things down because some of it was so good I thought it would be great for this speech. On reflection though, some of it was just too dirty to include. Our Grandma is here!

 

The one thing that I can tell you is that when someone played the ‘Cottaging’ card in answer to a question she responded with ‘WE USED TO DO THAT!’.

 

I had to step in to explain what cottaging actually was by which point Demi and Roxanne had died of embarrassment whilst we were crying with laughter. Clearly, she hadn’t paid much attention to George Michael’s fun back in Hampstead Heath.

 

If that’s not the biggest icebreaker to a family coming together, then I don’t know what is.

Demi, you look absolutely fabulous today as we all knew you would. I hope you are enjoying your day so far and are happy with our shirt collars, bridezilla.

 

It’s great to have you as a sister in law so I could get away with that and I look forward to many more games of Cards Against Humanity with you.

Stuart, thanks for asking me to be one of your best men today. It’s been a privilege to do this. I can see how happy you make each other and I wish you both nothing but happiness for your future together.

So then, ladies and gentlemen, I invite you all to stand and raise your glasses to toast the new husband and wife! We wish you well and your own happily ever after. To Stuart and Demi!”

I am going to break this second example down and explain how you too can write something similar if not better than that.

 

You Have To Start Strong With A Good Introduction

Not only does an impactful introduction make the audience sit up and take notice of you, but it also helps alleviate any potential nerves you might have.

 

A good tip is to induce laughter right from the get-go - after you tell the wedding guests who you are as seen here:

“For those who don’t know me, my name is Graham and I’m today’s best brother.

I say best brother as there’s less competition in that category than in the best man competition. So if you like Craig’s speech better, then at least I still win something...

 

Then try working in a small joke or a wry observation to get the ice breaking. Once you hear the laughs break out, that will give you the momentum you need to launch into the body of your message.  

 

Thanksgiving Isn’t The Only Time To Give Thanks

A nice gesture would be to extend your thanks to the couples for organizing the event. Then thank your friend or brother for giving you this honor of being his best man.

Afterward, say thank you to the guests for being present.

 

How to write your best man speech

 

Have you thought about the groomsmen too? If you are not the only best man, then it makes sense that you express gratitude to them as well.

 

If you the only guy, you can ‘’thank yourself’’ and that will surely bring the house down. I must emphasize here that I haven’t heard any best man do this though. But if you do, your brother or friend and the wedding guests will not forget what you said.

 

Now, let’s see…

How To Write The Body Of Your Funny Best Man Speech

 

Here’s an excerpt to refresh your memory.

‘’…Let me tell you a bit about growing up with Stuart - we met in the 90s, back in a time where it was fine to dress your children in popper tracksuit bottoms…’’

 

Here is your chance to actually tell your best friend or brother the stuff that you’ve always just thought about - so make the most out of it.

  1. Talk about how and where you met him
  2. The kind of person he is
  3. How he’s made a difference to your life,
  4. What you admire the most about him
  5. What he’s taught you 

 

Relate a couple of anecdotes where he’s had your back, talk about shared experiences that have shaped your lives, and narrate touching incidents that have strengthened your bond.

 Action Tip: Can you write down responses to those questions and use it to come up with a rough first draft?

 

Talk About The Bride Too

 

Take this opportunity to talk about your new sister as well. Whether you’re narrating how your best friend or brother told you he was in love or a heartfelt story about how they met, it’s important for you to talk about them as a couple.

 

Always speak from the heart - telling the bride how beautiful she looks and how lucky your friend is to have her in his life is a beautiful way of getting those radiant smiles on both faces. Don't forget to praise the bridesmaids too for taking a huge weight off the bride's shoulder.

As you go about it, use metaphors and similes to share your experiences. For instance, you can use a simile to tell the wedding guests how the ‘’gloom’’ felt when he met the bride.

Remember that the spelling of gloom is deliberate here. You too can use it purposefully when you are talking about the groom.

 

For example, the gloom (oh my goodness, did I say gloom) is perfect for the blide because….

Now, let’s see how to tap into the power of similes.

Here we go (a short example)!

 

When Mike first met Angela after they had left school, I knew they were destined to be together. My sister was very distrustful of men but he used all the tricks he knew to woo her because she was unyielding like a rock.

 

Feeling like a disappointed goat, Mike almost gave up but I told him not to because quitters never win and he sure was not one.

He got to know that Angela was like a box of chocolate when he persisted and eventually won her heart.

Notice how I used those similes…like a disappointed goat…and like a box of chocolate… to write that short best man speech? That’s exactly the way to harness smiles to your advantage.

 

M4 (1)

 

You see, your funny best man speech is more than acknowledging the groom’s presence in your life. It is meant to celebrate the couple on the most important day of their lives. So, if you feel that this is the happiest your friend or brother has ever been, say it.

Thirty years down the line, you’re going to be looking back at some beautiful pictures, timeless smiles, and the memories of a truly unique speech and look back and be thankful that you made the groom proud.

Here’s How To End Your Funny Groom Speech With A Bang

 

Once you’re done recounting your adventures and addressing the ''amore'' in the room, make sure you end on a strong note. All great speeches have one singular element in common - a memorable ending.

 

Here are some pointers to help you close on a memorable note.

  1. Did you know that music or a well-known song can make your speech funny?

 

Most best men try so hard to find some funny words to spice up their messages. But it shouldn’t be so if you pick a soundtrack the guests can sing along to.

Then rehearse it and or even substitute some of the lyrics with your own words. If you can play a musical instrument, that would be great.

 

Here is what I want you to do now. If you can sing a love song well, why not change the words and end your speech with it.

  1. touching poem can also serve this purpose. There are so many of them online.
  2. You can dispense marriage advice to the bride and groom if you are married. If you are the father of the groom as well as his best man, you should bring your experience to bear. If you are not married yet, you can just mention what you admire about them and why you think they will make a lovely couple.
  3. Another great idea is to wish them well before you raise your glass for a toast.
  4. Are you a religious person or a Christian or are the couple rooted in faith? If you nodded yes to that, you can end with a bible verse or even a word of prayer from the scripture.

 

Let’s look at these verses:

Bible verse#1: Psalm 128: Blessed are all who fear the LORD, who walk in his ways. You will eat the fruit of your labor; blessings and prosperity will be yours. Your wife will be like a fruitful vine within your house; your sons will be like olive shoots around your table. Thus is the man blessed who fears the LORD.

Bible verse #2: Romans 12:10 Be devoted to one another in love. Honor one another above yourselves.

 

Suppose you want to wish the couple well with the first verse, we will end up with this short word of exhortation.

Mike and Linda, God bless you so much for honoring him and bringing us together.

Your marriage has given us a glimpse of the Lord and savior Jesus Christ has for his church and the whole. As you start this union, may you acknowledge him in everything you do and he will always direct your steps.

Scripture says that those who walk in the paths of the Lord will be blessed in everything they do and they will be like olive shoots. My hope and prayer is that in good times and the bad, you will love each other so your lives will bring glory to the God of heaven and earth.

Always remember in your walk together that God brought you together to show others that true love still exists.

That can also happen to you if you dwell on your fears. Your worries will magnify if you gaze at your inadequacies.

See in your mind’s eye raising that champagne or mind goblet and delivering your message before your friend and his wife and the guests as well, and you will empowered to make your presentation exciting.

With so many things to do to really help your friend, the writing of your best man  toasts may not come to the fore. This means that you should devise a strategy to get things working.

If you don’t commit yourself to the time allotted to the writing of your script, then forget it. A quiet place can get you in the mood. Inspirational music can also inspire you a lot. But in all cases, do ensure that there are no distractions.

Next, you have to decide if you want to go with a more conventional way of making a toast or a contemporary appeal.

Conventional or traditional ones is simply rendered: Here’s to the happiness of the couple. May they never lack joy in their lives.

The contemporary approach goes with a brief story or anecdote before the best man toast.

If you can do it well, you will surely bring the house down:if  you want to do just that -simply recapture a funny or amusing tale about your friend and share it with the guests.

The often rendered: Here’s to the happiness of the couple- follows your tale after you have told the guests  a story about your friend.
