Presentation Magazine recommends making sure the Best Man speech includes the groom's good qualities and achievements, the background on the bride and the couple's shared goals. The best speeches contain at least one funny story.
Start the speech by thanking the guests, the groom and the fathers of the bride and groom. Offer a toast to each set of parents on behalf of the newlyweds. Next, break the ice with a joke or a funny story about the groom. Talk about the good qualities of both the groom and the bride, and what they are like together as a couple. Wrap up by leading the guests in a toast to the couple.
