Best Man Joke Examples

The best man speech is one of the most important traditions at a wedding. It is a chance for the best man to share funny stories, heartfelt memories, and words of wisdom with the groom, the bride, and their guests. A well-written and delivered best man speech can be a highlight of the reception, and it can help to set the tone for the rest of the evening. Here are some 
  • "I'd like to start by saying what a pleasure it is to be Best Man at Charles and Camilla's wedding. Charles made me compete for this honour today, but I was able to beat the barman over there in rock-paper-scissors, so here I am!"
  • "The trouble with being the best man at a wedding is that you never get to prove it."
  • "I'd like to congratulate the Groom on a truly magnificent speech. I always knew it would be hard to follow him and I was right – he lost me and thank you."
  • "Being asked to be someone's best man is like being called up for jury service. The only difference is I’m not who’s been given a life sentence today."
  • "I did ask for a microphone but was told one wasn't available. So if you can't hear me, please shout 'What?'"
  • "I've known the Groom since we were kids. We used to play together in the sandbox. Well, I used to play in the sandbox, he used to eat the sand."
  • "The Bride is a wonderful woman. She's kind, caring, and beautiful. But most importantly, she's willing to put up with the Groom."
  • "I'm sure the Groom is a little nervous about getting married. But he shouldn't be. After all, he's been practicing for years."
