The best man’s wedding speech is without a doubt the most eagerly anticipated of all the wedding speeches and is traditionally littered with jokes that will most likely be at the groom’s expense!
When you’re giving your best man’s speech, it’s good to keep the audience in mind. If you’re not sure who is going to be there then it’s worth talking to the groom about the guest list so you can ensure that your speech is audience appropriate.
As well as some anecdotes about the past, it is also nice to take the time to acknowledge the bride and this new life that the newlyweds are about to begin together. Try to make sure your speech does not go on for too long – aim for around 5-10 minutes and remember that it may take longer to actually deliver your speech than when you rehearse it as you will hopefully be allowing time for laughter and applause!
