The Wedding Speech

When it comes to writing a speech there are no rules for the presentation, your content or the duration.  You need to make sure that it  contains Thanks to the groom on behalf of the wedding party and a toast to the new couple.  A successful speech will require a great deal of effort on your part however with some help from our experts and some fine tuning, you should be able to come up with a flawless presentation that reflects your personality and succeeds in getting your point across.

Now that you've been asked to make a speech, start making some notes.  You may want to write about something funny that happened in your past or awards and achievements in the grooms life.  Ask his friends, parents, business associates, even the bride to get the most details or possible stories to use at the reception.

Once you have written down your notes, you should start writing your speech.  Start with something funny or a story that would capture the guests attention. Something that is about the groom. 

For instance, Our Pastor at our church was talking about dog obedience and how he and his fiancé had to go to the final class for the dog to graduate.  He went into detail about missing 4 out of 8 classes.  On the final day, he shows up with the dog, only to discover that he has to take a test with the dog.  He prayed that he would have to go first as he was not aware of the commands to use, as his fiancé watched.  They asked him to walk the dog, run the dog, have the dog sit, ect.  When the final test came, the instructor asked the Pastor to "circle".  The pastor thought that it meant for him to walk around the dog, however, it really meant for the dog to walk around him.  He had never been so embarrassed in his life.  We need to say he graduated, but was a little embarrassed in front of his fiancé for that blunder.

This would be an excellent example to use about the Groom in your speech.  Once you've caught their attention, use information about the couple and how they met, end it with an encouraging word for the couples future and Toast.

When writing you speech sure it contains the following:

1.  An amusing Story

2.  Grooms Date of Birth, Even the Brides

3.  Talk about his childhood, what he was like and what he aspired to be.

4.  Who was his first date.. first girlfriend, first kiss, first real love...

5.  What's he like at work compared to what he like off work hours.

6.  Any embarrassing stories about his past, something funny he may have recently done.

7. When did the Bride and Groom Meet? when was the first time he tried to hold her hand, when was their first kiss, where did he propose, how did he propose, how far out of his way did he go to propose

8.  End this with a Toast to their future and the hope they will have alot of children together...

9.  Wrap it up with how much your friendship means to each other and how honored you are to be not only his best friend but his best man.

10.  Send out your final toast  to the couple and wish them well in their new life together.
