At my sisters wedding the best man started off by saying 'id like to make a toast to the most important people here tonight.......... the bar staff!' certainly had the room laughing!! Well i think it helped that there were something like 16 ushers all late 20 something blokes!!

I wrote mine from scratch last year. It was for my brothers wedding so I just used plenty of family stories and it went down a storm. Also if you do make a joke and no one laughs, turn it into a joke don't stand there looking awkward!

My parents turned up unexpectedly at our wedding and boosted the crowd by a third!
Here's some great ideas for a best man's speech
15th May 2012, 10:52 AM #23
I was best man for my twin brother, I was able to use every embaressing moment that took place, I used props that I had in a laptop bag, something that came as a suprise which included a job he had de-stoning plums, so out came the PPE and then the plums to de-stone, his teddy he had from a nipper etc etc.
He got his own back on me a month ago at my wedding by using pictures he got printed to A3 size (quality was amazing from SnapFish i believe) from a scanned photo. So instead of the powerpoint, outcame these pictures, I havent a clue how he got them to the venue as i never saw them till the moment they were shown. also something I have to keep too,.

If the mother-in-law has a good sense of humour...
Step 1: Get a load of old random door keys and hand slyly them out to loads of the male guests, and give one to the mother of the bride.
Step 2: Begin speech.
Step 3: During the speech, mention how the bride is now officially 'off the market' and ask all her previous 'gentlemen friends' with a key to her place to hand them in.
Step 4: Mention that the groom is now also off the market and ask all the ladies to hand in the keys to his place.
Step 5: Bask in the awesomeness of your joke and enjoy the laughter and applause as the mother-in-law hands her key in.

If you are after ideas, go to Youtube, nick a joke of each and there you have it. Mind you, be prepared to cut out a joke it if has been used by the Father or Groom in their speeches. Happened to me, but only the toastmaster noticed.
