If you are chosen as a best man, it indicates that you are very significant person for someone. Along with arranging countless things, best man should come up with own speech. That is what many people are afraid of. However, if prepared correctly there is nothing to worry about.
First of all you should prepare your speech at least five days until wedding day. Note down all the memories you have with groom, make it in chronological order. Chronologically arranged speech makes much more sense to audience. After de-list everything that would not contribute positively.
Start your speech with how long have you known groom. Underline all the good features that given person has. Speak chronologically, and use humor within your speech.
You should give credit to bride, make sure to mention how great couple they are. Within your speech mention groom’s family members, friends and all the attending public. Make eye contacts with audience frequently.
Remember that there are some factors that you need to avoid within your speech. First of all do not make it too long, you do not want to bore public. On the contrary do not make it too short, five to ten minutes speech would be perfect.
My advice would be to consume alcohol responsibly. Excessive alcohol can spoil your whole speech. It has to be noted that dirty and offensive jokes must be eliminated. It is laughable but do not even think of mentioning groom’s ex-girlfriend, this is going to put you in tricky situation.
To conclude, prepare your speech well ahead and use common sense. Use humor within your speech and everything will be fine. If however you are unable to come up with your own speech, there are plenty of online sources that sell prewritten speeches for all occasions.
