Often one of the highlights everyone looks forward to (apart from the best man) is the best man’s speech. This can be a really daunting task but the best man’s speech is often one of the best parts of a wedding.

You will have to stand up in front of a room full of people but all those people are really appreciative of what you are doing and if you can deliver a speech that is both emotional and witty you will be Mr or Mrs Popular.
