It seems like all my friends are getting married right now. One wedding blends into another. They're all a great time but there are only a few that stand out. These are the weddings I'll never forget.
A lot of guys might not like to admit it, but they do get nervous about giving the best man's speech at their friends' or family members' wedding. Actually, it doesn't have to be all that big of a deal. You do want to cover your bases and get the important things right, and this includes being appropriate for the occasion. Sure you want to be respectful, but humor is essential in making people feel at ease and enjoying the speech. Humor gives a moment for people to unwind and relax during all the events of the day.

Before you have a panic attack over what to say at a wedding, know what is expected of you. This is going to depend on if you were asked to speak, your relationship to the wedding party, the wedding plan and whether you’re delivering a toast, a speech or a combination of the two.
A toast is a great way to end your wedding speech. It can be used on it’s own if you have been asked to give a toast or “say a few words” rather than give a speech. Here are some of my favorite wedding toasts.
Weddings are supposed to be fun, right? Sure, there will be a few emotional tears, and some angry words will be shared when the words “cash bar” pass through the crowd, but for the most part weddings are a joyous affair. There’s food and drink, friends and relatives, music, dancing and … speeches.
Speeches can be one of the most fun, and funniest, parts of a wedding – if you do it right. This is a time when you really want people laughing with you, rather than at you. To make that happen, you have to remember a few things.
The maid of honor speech is an opportunity to have some fun. Not everybody can pull off a rap performance like this at a wedding but I think we can still learn a lot from the content here. The speaker starts with a fun intro and then talks a little about the bride and her growing up, she keeps it relevant to the wedding though. Then she focuses most of the "speech" on the bride and groom's relationship. Enjoy.
Quotes are a great way to begin or end a speech or to emphasize a point. I also find that browsing quotes is a great way to get inspired when I'm stuck for ideas. The Father of the bride speech is one of the most important speeches at a wedding. Giving your daughter away is not a trivial thing.
Here are my seven favorite daughter quotes. Maybe you can use one of these in your father of the bride speech.
