The groom’s wedding speech is a time to thank the guests for attending the wedding and to acknowledge close friends and family who have been unable to attend the big day for any reason. This is often said on the behalf of the groom himself and the new bride. The groom’s wedding speech can also give a special mention to both sets of parents, thanking them for all their help.
As the groom’s wedding speech is usually before the best man’s speech, you can use this as an opportunity to introduce the best man to all your guests and perhaps tell a couple of jokes or anecdotes about how you met.
