As a friend, there is no greater responsibility than being asked to be someone’s best man. For the biggest day of their lives, they value you above everyone else to stand alongside them as they tie the knot.
The first main duty of the best man is to organise the stag do. Depending on the tastes of the groom, this can range from the rather generic to the totally bizarre. For a little inspiration of what not to do, take a look at this list of stag dos that went wrong from the Telegraph.
The other primary duty of a best man is on the big day itself. Tradition states that you must stand up in front of the newlyweds and their guests and deliver the best man’s speech, easily the most daunting part of the role. The best man’s speech has to cover all bases, it needs to be funny, heartfelt and charming, three things which are hard to cover where your audience is likely to cover every age range.
Thankfully, Event Washrooms has put together a helpful infographic titled How to Ace Your Best Man Speech: The Ultimate Cheat Sheet. This infographic provides a step by step guide full of things to include and things to avoid to help make sure you offer up the perfect best man speech possible. Take a look for yourself below.
