    That line is worth using in your best mans speech, quite amusing.

    Keep it short and clean and don't relate any tales of Amsterdam red light area with the groom....

    DON'T DO IT!!!!!!

    I was best man for my brother last weekend and it's a pain in the backside. Make sure you get the Usher's working would be my main advice. As for the speech, make it funny in places but serious when you need to be. Compliment the bride and a jokey present for the groom as part of it is always a winner. I got my brother a bottle of jet black just for men as he's going grey at 24!

    here's a website I used for insparation: http://www.thebestmanspeech.com/?gcl...FQyN1Qod4GEljg

    as already said there is loads on line but try to keep it in line with him

    always comment on how nice the brides maids look and how stunning the bride is (making her out to be the bell of the ball as it is her day remember )

    good one to use is :

    " i was worried about doing this speach today but luck enough i slept like a baby last night........ up every house craying my eyes out "

    but best of all remember you have to take the complete piss out of the groom as thats you job and is what it expected of you

    also try not to swear alot , only use when needed

    My top tip is don't make it too long, people will just get bored and drift off. Also don't rely too heavily on material only the closest mates will get, making the rest of your audience feel alienated.

    I was the best man at my dads wedding. being the poetic soul that i am i wrote a poem it took me 5 mins to write was 2 mins to read and made all the ladies cry hehe

    Top tips.
    Like some mentioned dont make it to long.

    Remember private jokes between friends are privite for a reason you need to ensure everyone can easy share the joke.

    Stories of you eating worms as a kid dont work anymore unless granny smiths there. Stories of pulling 20 girls on a night out dont work just makes the bride parent think twice about pay for the honey moon lol

    Keep it simple touch on the your past with the groom but make sure you big up the bride and tell the family how happy you are that they are together even if you not.

    Simple effective and to the point cant go wrong

    The 6 P's

    perfect preparation prevents p#ss poor performance

    Good luck
