There’s a lot of pressure on the best man during on a wedding day. Not only do you have to look after the rings and welcome guests, you have to stand up in front of strangers and make them laugh again and again. That’s why it’s important to prepare first. You should write your speech several months in advance and make small tweaks as you edit it. Once you’ve got it all down and you’re happy with it, ready it to family members and friends who are not attending the wedding. See if they laugh when they’re supposed to and see if they understand the jokes. A best man speech should be understandable, not too long and should have a consistent theme. It should also round off on a nice note, after all it’s their special day. Make sure you prepare thoroughly if you’re to be someone’s best man. The time you put in will go a long way on the day.
