If you have been asked to be someone's best man at his wedding, then the one thing you won't want to do is to give a really bad best man speech. The best man speech can be a big part of the day and there is often a lot of pressure on the best man to make sure he gets it right; you want it to be remembered for the right reasons after all. Here are just a few ideas for how you can avoid giving a best man speech that sucks.
- Putting a lot of effort into the speech will probably mean you have a higher chance of getting it right. Without planning your speech beforehand, you will more than likely end up giving a speech that is a total disaster. You are more likely to perform really badly on the day if you don't put much effort into the speech. It will take some time to get your speech right so don't think that just because it is a couple of months before the big day, that you have loads of time; you would be surprised at how quickly this time will go and before you know it the big day will have arrived.
- Always remember that the focus on the speech should be the bride and groom; you should also consider the rest of the audience. You should make sure the content of your speech is appropriate for all the guests and never take this opportunity to air any grievances that you have with others.
- Take a light hearted approach when writing your speech but when it comes to joke telling you need to take care. Joke telling is not something that everyone can pull off and if you are not great at getting laughs from a punch line then it would not be a good idea to have too many jokes in your speech. Even if we are not natural comics we can benefit from a couple of jokes in the speech, but if we attempt a full comic routine it could be very embarrassing.
Getting wedded is often a life changing experience. At least guys would think so, anyhow. What greater way to see off your single times than with a stag weekend Budapest?
