When you are asked to be the best man, you should know that you are the first one to give a toast. This may seem like you are back in grade school when you are in front of the class, giving your summer story but best man toast speeches shouldn’t be like that.
There are only 4 things that you should consider:
1) Pre-written speeches
When you are one of those people who dread speeches, it would be convenient for you to write your speech down prior to the wedding. This will help you gather what is on your mind and not forget anything on the day itself. You can also just read your pre-written speech during the wedding to make it easier for you. However, if you are on the confident side, you can actually just writer bulleted targets for your speech and make it as a cheat sheet just in case you get the nerves.
The first part of best man toast speeches should always be an introduction of you. You also have to state how the groom and you are related. You can also share a funny story on how the two of you met.
In the body part, make sure that you tell a funny story about the time when you and the groom are young. This will make the tension lessen and it will make the mood light. You also have to compliment the groom and the bride.
Lastly, wish them both happiness.
After which, you can all toast and enjoy the champagne.
