A Funny, Basic, Well-Presented Best Man Speech (Video)

The best man speech below has many solid characteristics of a good best man speech.

First and foremost, Ollie–the best man, presents himself very well speaking clearly and projecting nicely so that everyone can hear him.  Though most people may not consider this, Ollie finds himself in a somewhat awkward poistion as he has to do his best man speech on the stairs.

Ollie is clearly fairly comforable speaking and he does many good things in this best man speech: He immediately toasts the bride and groom quickly bringing everybody into his speech.  He mentions his knowledge of the couple and their long history together.  He integrates humor and history nicely in this speech.

We have written much about blending sincerity and humor in a best man speech.  Ollie does this nicely, integrating humor in with his sincere knowledge of the bride and groom.

Enjoy Ollie’s Best Man Speech below as an example of good best man speech.

Worst Best Man: A Speech Gone Wrong

They say that the Best Man Speech can make or break a wedding.  In the video we see below, we find a Worst Best Man speech that makes everyone uncomfortable and the entire occasion rather unbearable.

This speech is very odd in that he, Dave–the Best Man, seems to have cue cards accessible.  What could have been written on them?

Did the cue cards simply say “Ummmmm….”?

Please, best men, avoid this fate by using the resources on these pages available to you!  Here is the video…

The Worst Best Man Speech



Best Man Speech: Five Tips For A Knockout Performance

The best man speech has become the focal point of many weddings.  The best man either delivered a knock out best man speech and all of the guests are talking about it.  Or, he delivered a poor or inappropriate speech that has everyone talking for the wrong reasons.

So, will you be the best man who delivers a knockout performance or will you be the one who accidentally rains on the wedding parade?

The problem with the whole notion of the Best Man Speech is that, in the majority of the cases, the best man has never spoken in public before.  He does not have the experience.  Thus, his first time as a public speaker comes on a grand stage and, even with lots of preparation, the only true test is the real one…when the best man finds himself in front of dozens or even hundreds of spectators.

Hiliarious Best Man Speech

The Best Man Speech below is an absolutely hilarious best man speech from a Scottsmen.  As we have written many times on this site, humor is mandatory in a best man speech.

In the speech below, the best man at this Scottish wedding uses humor perfectly, though his content is rather edgy.  You must know your audience in a best man speech and he clearly did–many Scottish people who were enjoying themselves and up for a good, if irreverent, laugh.

This is a great example of a best man speech and should be used as a barometer for how to create a funny best man speech.  However, tread carefully if you want to use similar content–it may not go over with all audiences.

Best Man Speech: Overcoming Anxiety

When someone is asked to be the best man in a wedding, the initial feelings of your friend getting married and you being such a big part of it are often quickly thawed by one sobering thought:  I have to give the best man speech.

To many people unaccustomed to giving a speech, much less a best man speech, the idea of speaking in front of many people brings great fear and trepidation.  I am reminded of the Seinfeld joke in which he quipped:

According to most studies, people’s number one fear is public speaking. Number two is death. Death is number two. Does that sound right? This means to the average person, if you go to a funeral, you’re better off in the casket than doing the eulogy.”

Fear of public speaking can add great stress to your wedding weekend.

A word of caution about your best man speech:  Imitate But Do Not Duplicate.

Upon seeing the video below, I recall a wedding I attended this summer.  The Best Man at this wedding did the EXACT SAME SPEECH as you see below.  Of course, he changed the names and locations but he scarcely changed a word.
