Best man speeches are traditionally real kickers! Everyone loves this speech because it is funny and entertaining, although the groom may dread what the best man will come up with! This puts the pressure on you, as the best man, to entertain the audience without humiliating the wedding couple.

The good news is that you only need to be entertaining for a few minutes. Here are some pointers to deliver an entertaining speech and get out with your good name:

Start with the fundamentals. That will give you a good structure to work with. Introduce yourself, as some guests may not know you. Acknowledge the bridesmaids and thank the wedding hosts, usually the parents of the bride. If the newly-weds have paid for their own wedding, make a more general statement. For example: “We’re all delighted to be here today on this joyous occasion”. End the speech with a loud and sincere ‘congratulations’ or ‘cheers’ and don’t forget to drink to your own toast!
To fill in, brainstorm some specifics about the bride and groom. You’ll get the laughs by focusing on stories, not generalities: tell what you noticed when you first met, how the couple met, what the groom was like as a friend before he met his wife and how he has changed,  and any amusing character traits that the groom (or bride) may have.
Don’t forget to compliment her!
Leave ex-girlfriends out of the speech and keep the language suitable for kids, mother-in-laws and grandmothers! 
How you deliver the speech makes a difference. Stand up straight, speak loudly and clearly, and avoid delivering best man speeches in a haze! The speech should have a positive and up-beat tone. Be sincere, speak from the heart, and your speech will be terrific!

As you can see, you probably won’t hit the nail on the head by arriving at the podium unprepared. And missing with this speech, can be quite embarrassing for you and the couple.  With some planning and a little rehearsal, you can create a memorable moment.

Pay attention to this last pointer, its for you.
