Best Man Speeches for Older Brother

Best man speeches can be intimidating for many men. Imagine the extra pressure on you if you are the best man and the groom is your older brother! I don't think best man speeches for older brother is much different from any other best man speech for that matter. It's the quality of the speech and the ability of the best man to present it before the audience make the difference. However, there are a few things you need to do or rather wouldn't want to do when you are giving your best man speech and the groom is your older brother. Here are some helpful tips if you're writing best man speeches for older brother.

First, write down what you want to say ahead of time. Don't count on your ability to improvise under pressure. Even if you don't use your notes when you deliver your best man speech you will always have them to refer to if you lose track of what you want to say.

Best man speeches for older brothers come with extra pressure on the best man. Your job is to celebrate your brother and his wife and wish them well as they begin their life as husband and wife. Keep that in mind as you sit down to write your best man speech.

In terms of constructing your best man speech, it's best to begin with a funny story or anecdote about your brother. Choose something from when you were both kids, maybe something playing up your older brother's immaturity. It will show how he has transformed from an immature child into a mature adult who is ready for the responsibility of marriage. Be careful that your funny story is appropriate for the mood of the wedding and the sensibilities of your family and the bride's family.

While it's appropriate to gently tease the groom (he's your brother, after all), best man speeches for older brothers should not include teasing of the bride. Your brother may be able to shrug off a joke at his expense in your best man speech but his bride may not. Talk about her good qualities, how much your brother loves her, and how lucky your brother was to find a woman like her. It's also a good idea to welcome your new sister-in-law to the family as part of your best man speech.

To finish best man speeches for older brothers it's standard practice to end with best wishes for a wonderful life together. As the younger brother you may not have been married already. If so, avoid giving advice since it will seem strange that you should know what is required for a happy marriage. Instead, tell your brother and his wife to emulate the examples of other family members who have long-lasting, happy marriages.

Best man speeches, for older brothers or not, always end with a toast. Raise your glass and invite everyone else to raise theirs as well. Offer your congratulations to the bride and groom and your best wishes for a long and happy marriage. That's it!

Remember to write down what you want to say ahead of time, to keep the tone of your best man speech appropriate to what the bride and groom expect, and have fun with it. If you're still having trouble, talk to other family members who have been a best man in the past for advice. Your best man speech will go off without a hitch!

So, that's all for now on best man speehes for older brother and hopefully it's going to help you write a top speech for yourself. But, I was just wondering what if it's the other way round?
