Best man speech templates

Concerned that your best man speech is too sporadic? It often helps to set a theme that runs through the whole thing. Not only does this give you a thread to hold onto, it means you can build jokes up over the course of the speech. We've created 27 best man speech templates to help you tie material together in a fun and entertaining way. Even if you don't use the whole template, these will give you ideas for topics. Whether you have a lot to say about the newlyweds or not much at all, you'll find a template that gives your speech a structure and theme. If you're seeking guidance on how to arrange your ideas in a logical sequence, see our Speech formats.

Best Man Brother
Deep down, everyone knows you love him (but, having known him for so long, you will have a much better idea of just how far you can go). Wisecracks about the Groom’s early years, schooling and personality are to be expected from a sibling. Here, a famous brother is in action!

Groom's Achievements
Remember Mark Antony's speech at Caesar's funeral? This is the direct opposite. The Best Man protests that he's not here to dig dirt on the Groom, then pulls out a shovel and digs like a mole on crack.

Investigating Groom's Past
Schooldays and early life are vividly remembered in a touching portrait of the Groom as a young idiot. OK, so none of it actually happened, but there are greater truths revealed, right?

Instructions from the Bride
There's so much for the Best Man to remember! Fortunately, in this speech, the blushing Bride has provided a list of dos and don'ts for the big day... For the Best Man, it's a reminder of the perils of his role. For the Groom, a warning that now that he's married, someone else is in charge!

Wedding Guests
For the jet-setting or geographically mobile Groom with an international wedding crowd, a speech that takes those admirable global networking skills, and uses them as a comedy cosh to beat him into submission.

Aspirations for Married Life
So you're married to the woman of your dreams! All that remains is to sit back and bask in the warm glow of togetherness for the next forty years, right? Wrong! Here, the Best Man lets the Groom know what he's let himself in for.

Groom's Diary

Advice for the Groom
A break from the Groom-bashing for Best Men who's buddy is either too well behaved or much bigger than them. In this speech, the illusive secrets of a happy marriage are revealed. Your audience might want to take notes.

Groom's Passions
Who is the Groom? What are his passions? What makes his eyes light up and his heart beat faster... and are you sure you really want to know?

Admiration for the Groom
It goes without saying that as Best Man, you must have deep personal admiration for the Groom, so why not share it with the world on his wedding day? I'll tell you why not; because it's boring! It's much funnier to knock his top hat off and leg it out of the church. This speech sits somewhere between those two extremes.

Preparing the Speech
For the post-modern Best Man, a deconstructionist speech about the process of writing the speech! This one would be 'art' if there weren't so many cheeky digs at the Groom hiding on every line!

Mr Men
The delightfully innocent world of children's picture books is invaded by a marauding Best Man, who quickly puts the inhabitants of Happyland to the sword and installs a puppet government devoted to taking the mickey out of Groom.

Significant Dates
A useful template than can be adapted to any Bride and Groom, though it gets significantly harder to make this speech work if either of them were born on a leap year.

Happy Couple's Romance
From the first kiss to the big day, we take a trip down memory lane, reliving the epic romance that brought us to this happy juncture. The truth is the first casualty in this light-hearted look at the happy couple's courting. The second casualty is, of course, the Groom. This is an ideal template for a Best Man who has very little to say about the Groom.

Goals in Life
OK, so at this point it looks likely that the Groom's never going to be an astronaut. But what of his other ambitions? A light-hearted look at the shifting dreams and aspirations of the Groom, from school days to the present.

Groom's Attributes
The best man is instructed not to mention the Groom's shady past and to talk only of his positive attributes - which he does to great comic effect!

Wedding Behaviour
As a quirky way of dishing the dirt, the Best Man provides a run down of odd behaviour from the Groom that the wedding guests should be on the look out for.

Singling out a Groom Trait
A speech that finds that one loose thread, then picks away at it until the Groom's self-image unravels all over the reception room floor.

Classic Lines
"There are some stories you can tell at a wedding and then there are others that might be interesting to tell, but can't really be told. The ones that Paul invented about himself for the Reader's Letters section of Penthouse magazine would be a perfect example."
