Best Man Speech Structure

So you are the best man and need to write a speech. This in itself may or may not be a difficult thing for you. Some of us can write all day long, but can’t bring ourselves to stand in front of a group of people and make a speech. Some of us are the opposite and excel in being in the spotlight. Hopefully you are one of the elite who can manage to not only do both, but do them with panache. Either way, we will discuss here the proper best man speech structure.

You will always want to start your best man speech with an opening. This should probably include a funny remark to not only loosen up your audience, but you as well.

Next you should always compliment the bride, her attendants and the rest of the wedding party. This shows that you not only approve of the bride, but you respect her.

After you have done that you should introduce yourself and explain your relationship to the groom. That way anyone there who does not know you will have a better insight to where you are coming from.

Now we get to the fun part. This is where you roast the groom. This part can be as long or short as you like and can include some of his past exploits that are funny. Please ensure that you keep it tasteful and appropriate to be heard by all ages.

After the groom is properly roasted, you should maybe offer some humorous tidbits about marriage, offering advice at the same time.

Now it is time for you to get emotionally involved by offering a couple of close to the heart comments regarding the happy couple.

Finally, you can make a joyful toast to the bride and groom and be done with it!

So as you see, it is not very difficult to construct the proper best man speech using the best man speech structure offered above. It can actually be a very fun and rewarding experience when done correctly. Also, if you try to construct it in pieces, as in the sections listed above…you don’t even have to do it in order; it will be easier than trying to tackle the whole thing at once and without using any structure at all. Your speech will also flow more naturally than if you just make it up on the fly. This does not have to be a life threatening endeavor (even though some of us may look at it in that way. So, I am sure you now know how to lay the foundation of a great best man speech. Now it's time for action - put your pen on paper and sketch your best man speech structure.
