Being a best man is more than just the stag do, you have another important role to fulfill, the dreaded best man’s speech.

Here are a few tips on how to nail yours:

Don’t just stick to your speech – show flexibility and if you can bring a story from the day, this will show fresh content and also show you haven’t just downloaded the speech from the net.

Keep Calm and Carry On – Take in a deep breath to calm the nerves and go through the speech slowly and surely, making damn sure you bang those jokes / stories out clearly in order to maximize laughter. Once you get the crowd on your side you’ve made it.

Stories from the stag do should be funny and clean, remember the old saying what goes on tour, stays on tour.

Short is Sweet – give yourself 5 minutes as any longer people get fidgety and want to get to the bar.

Finally – you are the best man so make sure you live up to your name, be on hand so you can help if things stray from the master-plan.
