best man toasts | If a groom chooses you to be the best man at his wedding, it’s perfectly normal to feel a little proud of yourself. It’s also normal to feel a bone-chilling dread creeping over you as you realize what you’ve committed to. Actually, you’ve got it easy. When the German Goths began the best man tradition nearly 2,000 years ago, the best man had to fight off the bride’s angry relatives when the groom kidnapped her. All you’ve got to do is have a party, make a toast, and make sure the wedding runs smoothly.
Best Man Toast Examples#1
On behalf of (Bride & Groom), I’d like to thank everyone for attending this beautiful wedding today. My name is (Best Man’s name), and I am the Best Man. I have to tell you, once (Groom) met (Bride), I knew it was all over for him – he was completely smitten. He walked around in a daze with a goofy look on his face and seemed to spend a lot of time on the phone, talking in hushed tones. But seriously, I have never seen (Groom) so happy and content. I wish you both the best of luck and a life together filled with health, happiness and joy.
Congratulations, (Bride & Groom)!

I’d like to propose a toast to the bride and groom. May today be the beginning of a wonderful new and long-lasting chapter in their lives, and may they always love, honor and cherish each other, just as they do today.
Best Man Toast Examples#3
As the best man, it’s my turn now to make a toast. My name is (Best Man’s name), and I’ve known (Groom) since fourth grade. Wow. That’s a long time. Back then we were more interested in transformers than girls. Then it was sports rather than girls. But, sure enough as the seasons change, there came a time when we were more interested in girls than anything else. After watching (Bride and Groom ) fall in love, I can say, now I know all those years of transformer and sports training were worthwhile – (Groom) will always have the transforming ability to say ‘Yes Honey’ and the Olympic endurance to say ‘Yes Honey’ for year, after year, after year. Here’s to the Bride and Groom!
How to give a memorable best man toast that everyone will remember? The most important thing is to just keep it short. The worst thing you can do during any rehearsal dinner speech or wedding speech is to go on too long. Every goddamn guy who makes a toast at a wedding thinks it’s Amateur Night at the Haha Hole. You’re not as charming as you think you are. As the speech-giver, you are essentially holding the entire wedding hostage. People want to 1) drink, 2) eat, and 3) dance/go outside to smoke. That’s all they wanna do. Louis CK himself could get up there and if he went for 40 minutes, that’d still be wayyyy too long. Just keep best man speech under three minutes, preferably less.
