How to Write a Funny Best Man Speech
[There are a number of speeches made on a wedding day ranging from the heartfelt to the humorous. The Best Man is expected to inject some humor into proceedings so a lot can weigh on his shoulders. Follow these simple steps to giving a funny Best Man speech.
Writing Your Own Best Man Speech
Sketch an outline of the funny stories you recall from your friendship, if you have difficulty coming up with a suitable story then don't worry there are many sources to help you.Speak with your fellow Groomsmen and decide on which story you wish to tell to embarrass the Groom. This should be a short story.
Decide on an engaging opening line.Don't go with the "Hi I'm.." option instead try to open with a line that will set the tone for the rest of your speech.
Thank the Bride and Groom and say how happy and proud you are to be there.
Praise the Bride and Bridesmaids along with the mothers of the Bride and groom, mention how lovely they look (not time to be funny here guys!).
Poke fun at the Groom with a quick one-liner along the lines of:"I never thought I'd see the day when John got married, before Sarah came into Johns life his idea of a romantic night out was a candlelit football stadium."
Tell your funny story, begin it with something teasing like "not many of you may know this but..."
Use props, some of the funniest Best Man speeches involve props.Props are a great way of bringing laughter to a Best Man speech, an example might be:Announcing to the guests that the Groom had 2 ambitions in life, one he completed today in marrying a beautiful woman, then say "and I am delighted to help the Groom achieve his second ambition", then unveil a toy wrestling belt from under your seat, hold it aloft then hand it to the Groom saying "ladies and gentlemen, I unveil the new world wrestling champion", to loud laughter while the Groom squirms.
Mention how honored you are to be Best Man and include reference to your fellow Groomsmen.Write about how well-matched they are and their compatibility.
Read any faxes/emails that may have arrived, include a couple of funny ones that you wrote yourself, these are always well received.
Toast the Bride and Groom.Ask everyone to be upstanding in joining you to wish the Bride and Groom a toast. Your toast should be uplifting, an example might be: "May they live long, laugh often and love always."
- Have a pack of mints in your pocket because as Best Man you will be getting up close and personal with a lot of people on the day of the wedding.
- Even if you are giving a funny Best Man speech always end with an uplifting toast rather than trying to go for the comedy approach.
