Clean Jokes to Work Into a Funny Best Man Speech

You can write the speech yourself, alternatively, you can get a book of wedding speeches and then modify one.  If you are going to make a best man's speech, then it must come from the heart.

1. Devil or Angel?Better or worse

A man was walking in the street when he heard a voice. "Stop! Stand still! If you take one more step, a brick will fall down on your head and kill you." The man stopped and a big brick fell right in front of him. The man was astonished.

He went on, and after awhile he was going to cross the road. Once again the voice shouted: "Stop! Stand still! If you take one more step a car will run over you and you will die." The man did as he was instructed, just as a car came careening around the corner, barely missing him.

"Where are you?" the man asked. "Who are you?"

"I am your guardian angel," the voice answered.

"Oh yeah?" the man asked. "And where the hell were you when I got married?"Groomsmen Ring

I was at a wedding with a priest and a minister.
When the waiter brought the drinks for the toast, the minister said, 'I'll have a large whisky.'

The priest commented, 'No alcohol for me I'd rather go with a scarlet woman.'
So the minister put his drink back and murmured, 'Sorry I didn't know there was a choice.'

Now as the best man, I don't want to offend anyone so if there is a priest or a minister present I apologise, and if there is a scarlet woman here: I'll meet you in the bar in 10 minutes!

4. How To Celebrate Marriage

While enjoying a lunchtime pint in a Newcastle pub in the Scotswood Road, four elderly Geordies* were discussing everything from football, the economy, to the weather, to how things used to be in the "good old days."

Eventually the conversation moved on to their wives. One bloke turned to the guy on his right and asked, 'Eh, Alan, aren't you and your lass celebrating your fiftieth wedding anniversary soon?'

'Sure, man, we are,' Alan replied.

'Well, are you gonna do anything special to celebrate, man?' another bloke asked.

Alan pondered this for a moment, then replied, 'For our twenty-fifth anniversary, I took Hazel to Sunderland. Maybe for our fiftieth, I'll go down there and get her back.'Funny Best Man Wedding Speeches

5. Is Romance Dead?

Brian had asked Dave to help him out with cutting his rather large garden hedge after work, so Dave went straight over to Brian's home. When they got to the front door, Brian went straight up to his wife, gave her a big hug and told her how beautiful she was and how much he had missed her at work. When it was time for supper, he complimented his wife on her excellent cooking, kissed her and told her how much he loved her.

Once they were cutting the privet, Dave told Brian that he was surprised that he fussed so much over his wife. Brian said that he' d started this about six months ago, it had revived their marriage, and things couldn't be better.  Dave thought he'd give it a go.

When he got home, he gave his wife a massive hug, kissed her and told her that he loved her. His wife burst into tears. Dave was confused and asked why she was crying. She said, 'This is the worst day of my life. First, little Nigel fell off his bike and twisted his ankle. Then, the washing machine broke and flooded the basement. And now, you come home drunk!'

Do practice your best man's speech until you can recite it naturally and without hesitation.  To gain extra confidence find out precisely at what point during the reception you should give the speech.  Usually, it's after the bride groom's speech.

  • Secondly, the alter because that is where you will arrive.
  • Finally, remember hymn because that is a type of song we will sing during the service.

A Brief Guide to the Etiquette and Tradition of Wedding Day Speeches

This explains the traditional order of the best man's speech in the wedding reception:

The father of the bride.  A good way to start is to welcome all the guests.  He then usually talks fondly about his daughter.  As with most speeches, it is accepted that a mixture of affectionate anecdote and humour generally works well.  He then toasts the bride and groom.

The groom speaks next and replies on behalf of himself and his wife [in these modern times it should be remembered that more and more brides are making their own speeches*]. He aims to thank those people involved in helping them both in the planning of the wedding and distributes gifts to those who are to receive more than a verbal "thank you." The groom then may talk about his new wife before proposing a toast to the bridesmaids

...(v3r)

*If the bride is to make a speech it should take place following the groom's. It may seem obvious, but joint speeches should be co-ordinated well beforehand since both will probably wish to say much the same thing.

The best man's speech now follows.  He thanks the bride and bridegroom on behalf of the bridesmaids and himself for asking them to be part of their special day and for the gifts they have received and then he reads out telegrams, cards, e-mails or other messages from friends and relatives who couldn't be at the wedding. He will then go on to talk about the groom in what can be the highlight, or in some cases lowlight, of the wedding speeches. Humour and anecdote abound.  Finally the best man should then propose a toast to the parents of the bride and bridegroom.

Best Man Wedding Speech Check List

  • Make sure your speech will appeal to a wide range of people, and do not offend any guests.
  • Does your speech include a few jokes while remaining charming?
  • Have you included thanks to everyone involved?
  • Consider writing down key points on cards.  Even if you never use them they will give you confidence that you won't dry up.
  • Remember to finish your speech by toasting the bride and groom.
