(Groom name) has shown his great taste and wisdom in selecting (bride name) as his bride and his penchant for the best, by selecting me as the best man. Even though I may be the best, today he has proved that it is he who has had the most luck.

Other Best Man Speech Example
From A Brother
Of course, I’ve known (bride name) much longer than I’ve known (groom name), and I have been severely warned against revealing too much about her dreadful ex-relationships, her horrible teen attitude, childhood problems with alcohol and the short spell she spent in a Hawaiian jail for drug trafficking. Rather on this occasion, I’ll say that, it’s been a pleasure to see (bride name) up to become an adorable, independent, straightforward person who I know I could trust with anything, even (groom name). So it is an honor to be here today, not just for (groom name), but also for my sister.
From A Father
Having been happily married myself for thirty-two years, I should warn (groom name) that in order to have a blissful married life he should amend his bachelor ways. As he is accustomed to having only himself to answer to in his flat, he will now have to fine-tune to a new system. There will be someone to notice if he leaves his socks on the bedroom floor and it’ll be no use saying, ‘They’re not mine’, as he might have done when he lived with other male sock wearers like myself in the family home. Of course, that cuts both ways. I don’t know whether (bride name) is untidy, but if (groom name) picks up a pair of knickers that are lying about, it’s going to pose a difficult question if (bride name) says, ‘They’re not mine’.
