    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

    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.

    Guaranteed win.

    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.
