Funny best man speech

Wedding speeches tread a fine line between the nostalgic, the sentimental and the serious, that is of course until the Best Man stands to give his speech. By the time the Best Man’s toast begins wedding guests will have been listening intently to the various other speakers and while they may well have enjoyed these speeches they will be relying on you to provide some much-needed humor and laughter to proceedings.

It is vital to never include jokes that may be deemed crude or offensive so ensure any wisecrack on your behalf has a PG rating, this is particularly important when it comes to making any jokes about the honeymoon. For instance never make the Bride blush, instead aim the punchlines in the Groom’s direction.

If you will soon be a best man at your friend's upcoming wedding, then it is your responsibility to give a best man speech during the reception following the ceremony. These speeches are known as toasts, and much care needs to go into preparing the oratory. To name a few, the best man speech needs to be:

  • respectful
  • complimentary
  • witty
  • personal
  • sincere
  • appropriate for the audience
  • memorable

Foremost, the speech must be congratulatory. While the toast will be heard by everyone attending the reception, you need to remember that the best man speech is primarily for the newly married couple.

The trouble with being the best man at a wedding is that you never get to prove it.

Perhaps you want to include jokes in your best man speech to make it witty and humorous. If you aren't naturally a funny man, then you can find some funny speeches or quotes in books, the Internet, friends, family, magazines, or in newspapers. These jokes will give you some ideas, or you can incorporate a good joke somewhere into your own toast. Remember that your speech also needs to have a serious side, and it's not a good idea to let the entire speech become a laugh-fest. Here some examples:

Marriage is based on the theory that when a man discovers a particular brand of beer exactly to his taste, he should at once throw in his job and go to work in the brewery - George Nathan

Here's to the groom, a man who keeps his head though he loses his heart.

I had to make sure that (grooms name) day went according to plan,
so I took it upon myself to check (grooms name) post. I need to tell (grooms name) that the carpet people cannot supply your carpet this weekend, but you will get your underfelt tonight!
