Hi , I'm looking for some ideas or examples of best man speeches.
The wedding speech is not something I'm looking forward to, to be honest. I'm not that excited about speaking in front of 180 people! The groom is my brother so I'm not getting out of this one!
Anyway, do you know of any wedding resources that have some good best man speech examples?
Thanks, I appreciate it.
Hi Pet60, thank you for the advice and the link!The one you mentioned is now broken but I found the working link here: Dan Steven's best man speeches . I paid a small fee but consider it money well spent!
Yes, you're not alone - I decided to leave my preparation for my best man speech until the evening before the wedding! I laugh about it now but at the time ....
Luckily I did something intelligent for once - I checked on the internet - wedding best man speech examples and found Dan Steven's best man speeches . There was a small fee at the time (perhaps 19 dollars, might be more now?) , anyway, I had a brief look at which best man speech would best suit my style and the occasion. Copied most of it (ahem) added some of the free jokes etc. And added some personal facts - it may have been mostly template based but it still came across as original and sincere. I had the speech finished within 45 minutes!
I didn't memorize the speech, just read it out from cards (cards are better than paper - people can see shaky paper!) The audience laughed a lot, the speech sounded very professional and everyone was very surprised, knowing my slightly unreliable reputation - ahem (quite undeserved)!
As far as my nerves went, I used the free "Audio confidence booster", and for the jokes I used most from book that came with as well. Anyway, hope that helps in your search for best man speech examples.
Good luck, and hope it works out for you.
Here are 4 web sites that should help you.
Thanks so much Pet60,
just to report back I used the website you suggested and found some excellent best man speech examples - all so effortless, has my speech prepared in no time with minimum hassles - worth every cent!
Here's some ideas for best man speech examples / samples: "Marriage: a mutual relationship if both parties know when to be mute." Best Man: "Bride, can I ask you to put your hand flat on the table, and now Groom place your hand directly on top of her's. Now enjoy that Groom as this is the last time that you will have the upper hand!"
The best man speech usually lasts between 2 to 5 minutes. Your speech should be funny yet warm and humorous yet sincere. You can compliment the Bride and poke fun at the Groom and end with a great toast.
For best man speech samples and ideas - best thing is Simple and sweet,Just describe how beautiful the bride looks or mention something about the ceremony you just witnessed. Hold up glasses for a quick well wish toast. Here is to the bride and groom having a lifetime of love and wedded bliss.
ADD: After struggling for quite a while with finding the right site, I have finally taken Pet60 advice and decided to pay for it. I will never regret it, I got the best ideas for my speech. Fantastic! Thanks man!!
I don't recommend using a free website to find a good for this sort of thing. For man speech examples samples ideas pay for it!! Good luck
My brother-in-law did the speech at our wedding and he just told a few funny stories about him and my husband and one thing he said that was funny "I have been married 2 years and I have learned there are 2 ways to argue and neither one works"....ha ha.....and then he welcomed me to the family and we all did a toast.
All the best
Thanks, good thread
