4.      Don’t forget or leave out anybody: - Friends and relatives love to be acknowledged for all that they have done. Make a list and ensure that you don’t forget anybody. In case of any doubts add a line at the end, thanking all those whom you have forgotten to mention.

5.      Don’t take more than five minutes: - A joyous occasion as a marriage means everyone will be excited and looking forward to have fun. Make your speech in such a way that they will listen to you and not feel being tied down. Short, crisp, humorous and filled with love speeches is what you should plan. Avoid repeating sentences, saying the same thing again and again in different words, spelling out harsh words or negative phrases.

  1. Hello! I just finished reading your article and I enjoyed it a lot. My older brother is getting married next month and my mom is worried about the wedding speech she'll be expected to makre. She said she has a lot of other things to manage for the wedding and said I could do the speech instead. I was searching for some best man speeches right now when I saw your blog. I think it's great and I'm definitely going to persuade my mom to make the speech instead of me.
