As the Best Man, make sure you create the best wedding speech!

Being the Best Man in a wedding is an amazing experience. On the one hand, you will stand by your friend’s side as he ties the knot (and as he plans the Big Day too). On the other hand, this role will be accompanied by a lot of responsibility.

Of all your tasks as a Best Man, delivering a great wedding speech is one of the most important ones. After all, you are the groom’s honor attendant – and everyone expects you to give a speech that’s funny, emotional and truly honest.

How can you create a wedding speech that will leave everyone smiling? Here are some tips to consider.

  • Don’t procrastinate. Writing a good speech doesn’t just happen overnight, so take your time to write and edit – also take your time to practice it in the mirror as well. Doing this can make the entire difference in the world!
  • Keep it short. In general, wedding speeches shouldn’t be longer than 5 minutes (or even shorter than that, depending on the day-of schedule the bride and groom have created). Stick to being short and sweet and you will definitely nail it!
  • When in doubt, follow the pattern. That white sheet of paper can be quite intimidating, so if you feel lost for words, follow the “classic pattern”: start with an introduction (a joke or a pun), thank the hosts for the event, tell a story about the groom (which shows his qualities, as well as the qualities of his bride) and wrap up the speech with a toast (wishing the couple a happy life together).

Make sure your groomsmen look sharp on the big day by knowing how to dress them!

Your groomsmen are some of the most important people at the wedding – and you will definitely want them to look really great (and feel equally amazing too). How do you do that, though? How do you make sure your groomsmen look sharp on the big day?

We have gathered some tips to help you dress them really well – so read on and find out more.

  • Mismatched is OK. Long-gone are the days when everything at a wedding had to match 100%. Same as bridesmaids’ dresses, the groomsmen’s attires don’t have to match either. In fact, they will look a lot more stylish this way.

 

  • Mismatched, but with style. If you decide to allow your groomsmen to wear mismatched suits or tuxedoes, please make sure you do give them some rules at least. For example, sticking to three colors or simply to variations of the same color will be a very good idea.

 

  • Different silhouettes for different bodies. Your groomsmen look different – so it is only natural that you allow them to dress in tuxedoes or suits that are different too. This will help them choose something that suits their bodies and their personal style – and, consequently, it will also help them feel better throughout the entire wedding day.

 

  • Coordinated details. If you want your groomsmen to look great together even with mismatched attires, focus on coordinating the details – such as the lapels, the bow-ties, the shoes or the boutonnieres, for example.
