Best Man Speeches- Techniques for Coming Up With Suitable Topics

There is no doubt that being asked to be your hopefully good mate's best man is an honor. Sadly, some people immediately experience a sinking feeling that comes with worry about actually writing the speech. Now, as it turns out, there are many people who have never given a speech in their lives who still turn out an amazing speech that not only works on the day, but is talked about for all the right reasons for many years afterwards. I am well aware there are numerous disaster stories out there as well and hopefully, I will be able to help you avoid that very scenario.

So, firstly it is a good idea to actually ask yourself how you met? I understand this may not apply to all cases, but often you will have been friends from a young age and therefore have an arsenal of interesting experiences to recount. On the other hand, if you have met recently, you can think of an interesting twist to either the meeting, or any recent events between that time and the wedding. I think the most important point in any speech, best man or otherwise, is to make sure you are prepared. Please don't try to wing it, as the saying goes. It will more than likely fail, and that is not what you or your groom want. After all, this is an opportunity to really shine. Make the most of it and turn this to your best advantage.

Also, remember that there are great experiences to recount and great jokes. Just make sure you keep it relatively clean, given that the grandparents and other older guests may not see the same humor that you see. Remember my first point to keep it memorable for all the right reasons. However, equally, try to make an impact-rich statement near the beginning, to both crack the ice and also put the party at ease.

Obviously, it is imperative to remark on how incredible the bride looks, and also thank all the guests for their presence, particularly if they have come from afar. I also recommend that you consider any special stories relating to the set up of the wedding, like any special hurdles that may have been overcome. Sometimes, by injecting a little clean humor, as well as deep sincerity, mixed in with some light hearted story recounts, I think provides a really good basis for a memorable and special best man speech. I know it is easy for me to say, but I assure you that when you are sincere, your speech comes over very much more deeply than just reciting an entire word for word copy from a book. The ideas in pre-written speeches are still very good as a basis or a template. I also recommend as part of your practice when preparing the speech, to video record your speech so you can see the areas where you may eb able to improve. You can write a great speech.
