The groom’s brother or best friend, or even the bride’s brother, is often named as the best man in a wedding. Now, the best man is tasked to do many things including help the groom out in the preparations and in making sure that the wedding goes smoothly. Moreover, the best man has to deliver a speech at the wedding reception. Here, now, are sample best man speeches for brother of the groom.
You may begin your speech with a short greeting and a brief introduction about yourself. You may say, “Good evening, ladies and gentlemen! As I am not nearly as popular as the groom, I would begin by introducing myself. I am, for those of you who don’t know me, the groom’s little brother and best man. This is actually the first time that I have been asked to deliver a speech in front of a number of people, and I must admit that I’m standing here with my knees shaking and with my skin cold and clammy. The only thought that makes me feel better is knowing that I am not the only person here who is apprehensive, but then again she has just married my brother.”
“Kidding aside, though, I would like to welcome each and every one of you in this celebration. You have been generous enough to lend us your time just so you can help us celebrate this wonderful couple’s wedding, which shall I say, is going well so far, right? Also, on behalf of the bride and the groom, I would like to thank you so much for being here.”
“Now, I would like to address my big brother, the groom. As much as I envy you for snagging such a beautiful bride, I would like to express just how happy I am for you. Congratulations, dear brother. Finally, you have found the woman with whom you decided to spend the rest of your life. I know how much she has made you happy, how much she inspired you to become your best self, and how special she has made you feel. I thank her for that.”
“My wish for the both of you is a happy and stable marriage, and plenty of kids to keep you busy. With that being said, I propose a toast. Raise your glasses, ladies and gentlemen, for this lovely couple. May their love for each other grow even stronger through the years, and may they surpass every challenge that comes their way.”
