How to Give a Great Best Man Wedding Toast

So you're going to a wedding and you have to make a speech, but you sure as hell know that you don't want it to be a boring old speech like you know every one else's is going to be like. You want people to remember your speech and rightly so.  With these tips, I assure you, you wonít embarrass yourself in front of the whole wedding party.


Stand up while speaking

Always, always stand up when giving a best man speech or a toast. Make sure you have the gatherings attention first before you speak, and the best way to do that is to stand up and wait for quiet. Standing up is the first rule of any good public speaking and a wedding is no different.

Plan what you want to say

Never try and wing the speech. Giving a best man speech needs to be planned and written down well in advance. My brother started working on giving his best man speech weeks in advance. Unless you are a really confident public speaker, this is the best way to make sure you say everything you wanted to say.

Keep it clean

If you and the best man have known each other for a while and youíve had some wild times together, this is not the time to air his dirty laundry. People think that giving a best man speech gives them the right to embarrass the groom and upset the bride, this is not the case. Donít mention the trip to the strip joint or anything of that sort.

Keep it short

No one wants to be bored for hours with your speech. Make it short and to the point and donít forget to add emotion when giving your best man speech. The wedding isnít about you, itís about the bride and groom, donít forget that.

Practice makes perfect!

Practice your speech until you know it off by heart. There is nothing worse then giving a best man speech and having to look down at your notes constantly. Fidgeting with paper is a big no no.

I hope these tips have given you some pointers on what to do when giving your best man speech. Good luck!
