Even Under Stress You Can Give a Great Wedding or Best Man Speech
A little humor and encouragement goes a long way in giving a wedding speech
Don't stress over the Best Man Speech you need to give next Saturday night (and haven't written yet) - take a deep breath - you can give a great speech! You just need some preparation and a boost in confidence.
Gather your thoughts about the bride and groom and jot a few bullets down on an index card. You can relate a funny story, talk about growing up together, etc. Don't worry about the "audience" at the wedding reception. You're not working on an audition for the theater -These will all be friends and family of the bride and groom, many of whom you may know.
When you stand up to give your speech, have your note card ready & just be yourself.

Get Up There Mr. Best Man!
Get up there Mr. Best Man!
You've earned this special honor
Speak kind words on these two
If you don't speak nicely, you're a goner
Get up there Mr. Cool and Collected
Speak to the folks about how it is
Let them know that these two are destined
Let them in on the secret buzz
Get up there Mr. Suave and Spiffy
Those duds you're only wearing for this room
Tell the guests what you are thinking
Great insights on the bride and groom
Get up there, Mr. I Can't Speak
Don't be shy, just speak what's true
Use your cue card to keep you going
You don't have to add anything new
Get up there, Mr. Best Man
Toast this couple, 'fore the honeymoon
They'll thank you when they return
They'll be leaving fairly soon
