Best man? Add some extra humour to your speech with these classic jokes...
Good afternoon ladies and gentleman. If there is anybody here who is feeling worried, nervous or apprehensive, you're either me (because I am) or you just married [insert groom's name].
It can be said that a bride’s attitude towards her betrothed can be summed up by three words commonly associated with weddings: aisle, altar, hymn.
Before I start, ladies and gentlemen, let us observe a few moments silence in memory of the 3,000 prawns, 200 chickens, countless carnations, delphiniums, lilies and roses who selflessly gave their lives to make this wedding celebration possible.
I’m a married man and I have often heard people describe marriage as a 50/50 situation. Whoever came up with that phrase obviously knows little about marriage or is poor at fractions...
I can only say in my defence that [the groom] and I share a common sense of humour - so if this speech is in anyway unfunny, please feel free to blame him.
[Bride], you’re a wonderful woman, who deserves a wonderful husband. And I’m not going to rest until I get to the bottom of what’s gone wrong here.
Hello, everyone - I'm the Best Man. It really is impossible to praise [groom's name] highly enough – in fact, while writing this speech, I found it impossible to praise him at all.
So where do I start with [the groom]? Well for starters... He's handsome, witty, intelligent, char... Sorry. I’m having trouble reading his handwriting.
Being asked to be Best Man is very much like being asked to kiss the Queen: it's a huge honour, but no one really wants to do it.
The trouble with being the Best Man at a wedding is that you never get to prove it...
