Best Man Speech Examples
The best man speech is usually the most eagerly awaited of all the wedding speeches. Traditionally the best man speech is the last, which gives the groom the chance to get one or two quick jokes in at the best man’s expense. This can be a dangerous game as the best man can always have a couple of extra stories for his speech up his sleeve if he feels the need for revenge.
