 Tactful Bestman Toasts

As a bride, there are many facets of your wedding we're sure you're nervous about. However, the best man's speech shouldn't be one of them. Often times the best man says "I'm gonna wing it" or he writes this long, dramatic sequence of events that had transpired between your beau and himself some 20 years ago that has no relevance to you or your wedding day.

To prevent this from happening, we have equipped you with some pretty standard yet eloquent speeches that will speak volumes about the best man and yourselves. We support uniqueness 100% when it comes to writing the speeches. However, there are those rare people (you know who I'm talking about- we all know someone) who easily "inserts their foot in their mouth" and we can't always be sure what they are going to say. For those people, this article exists. If you feel comfortable having your man's best bud write his speech, then go for it!

If you see pieces of different speeches that you like, you can certainly combine them where it is fitting! We can help make the best man's speech truly remarkable. We have writers on staff who are awaiting your questions! Please feel free to contact us!


Standard Speech

First I'd like to congratulate (bride and groom's names) on their new adventure in life together. Mr. and Mrs. (bride's parents), it is truly an honor to be in the presence of a couple that have raised such an exceptional girl who complements (groom's name) so well. Mr. and Mrs. (groom's parents), you raised a son to be dedicated and passionate about everything he does in his life. I know that he will treat his marriage the same way.
I have never seen a couple that has extended great love for one another as I have with (bride and groom's names). Their dedication and commitment is truly admirable and I extend all the best for them. It is an honor for me to be friends with not only (groom's name) but bride's name) as well.
(Groom's name), you and I have been friends for a long time and I've never seen you happier. (Bride's name), you have been the bet asset for (groom's name) in his life. I hope the both of you continue to grow each day with one another and fill your lives with love, happines and success.
Congratulations again on your marriage. Now let's raise our glasses and toast the newly married couple, (bride and groom's name) and wish them a lifetime of great memories and laughter!

 

Almost Funny...

First I'd like to thank everyone for being here to celebrate the new marriage of (bride and groom's names). Mr. and Mrs. (bride's parents), thank you for your continued support and efforts in making this a perfect day for (bride and groom's names). I'd also like to thank Mr. and Mrs. (groom's parents) for hosting the dinner rehearsal last night and making all the groomsmen feel welcome. Lastly, I'd like to thank (bride and groom's names). (Bride's name), you really came in and "cleaned up my man" (groom's name). (Groom's name), thank you for picking me as "the best man" for the job.
(Groom's name) and I go way back. I could stand here and tell embarrassing stories about him like the time (insert a quick, humorous and tasteful example) or the time (insert a quick, humorous and tasteful example) but I won't do that to (groom's name). Today is about new beginnings and what that means for (bride and groom's names).
(Turn to face the couple). (Bride and groom's names), it is an honor for me to have a special role in your wedding as you leave here today a new couple ready to jump on to the express lane of the matrimony highway. The two of you are suitable for one another in every capacity. Where one of you may lack the other complements.
(Raise your glass). Here's to you, (bride and groom's names). May you experience nothing but green lights, no potholes and great driving music on your highway in life adventure together! Congratulations and I wish you all the best!

Member Testimonials

Count Your Carats 2012 was such an awesome contest for me to be a part of because it took place just before our wedding. After the year and a half of stress and planning, I realized that a lot of our wedding was for everyone else...the centerpieces and decorations...so when I won the $500 gift certificate, I actually decided to treat myself! I found these beautiful diamond earrings at R.J. Stohr's and fell in love! Normally I wouldn't have thought to spend that much money on myself but I decided that, for my wedding, they would be perfect-- and they were!! I even had some money left over which I used to buy 2 new watches and a gift to give to my husband for our first Christmas as a married couple! Being part of Berkshire Bride was an amazing and incredible experience that I am so glad I was able to have!
