Give the Perfect 10/10 “Best Man” Speech!

Writing the Perfect Best Man Speech


It’s the BIG DAY! No, it’s not your wedding. It’s your best buddy’s wedding and you are THE BEST MAN! 

That’s a great honor. But with this great honor comes great responsibility. And the biggest and the most terrifying responsibilities of all: you have to give the best man speech! In front of hundreds of guests whose expectations are high. Sky high. You have to make them laugh, then make them cry, tell a story, address the bride, thank the parents of the bride and the groom and finally raise a touching toast that makes the wedding an evening to remember.

Getting cold feet already? Take a deep breath and relax. To help you calm your nerves, here’s a hilarious best man speech from Hangover 2. And the best man here is none other than the eccentric character Allan who does exactly what you are NOT supposed to be doing as the best man:

Alan: Hey, everybody. Here’s some fun facts. The population of Thailand is sixty three million people. It is twice the size of Wyoming. It’s chief exports are textiles, footwear and rice. Each year, approximately thirteen thousand people are killed in car accidents in Thailand. The climate in Thailand…

It gets even worse…

Alan: None of you know Stu like I do. Not you! Not you! Not you! Not you! Not nobody knows Stu like I do. No one! I can’t even tell you what we’ve been through, cause we made a pact more important than blood. What I can tell you is this; this is not Stu’s first marriage. There was a whore in Las Vegas a couple of years…

Phew, that was a close call! Thankfully, Alan was shut up by another friend. We know it’s very tempting to spill your bro’s embarrassing secrets on this special day but you have to know where not to cross the line, man!

So, here are tips from experts to help you prepare the big speech and pass the test in flying colors:
