The Wedding Speech Specialists...
Congratulations! You have been given the poisoned chalice that is the role of Best Man. While this does come with some advantages (single bridesmaids, a free meal/bar, a stag party where the matrimonial lemming is taught a few valuable lessons before he takes his final leap over the precipice to marriage) it also has its downsides.
You now have to arrange the stag party, get involved in the wedding preparations, attempt to get the groom to the church on time, in one piece and looking half decent but worst of all you have to write and deliver a best man speech. A speech of such epic comedic proportions that your name will be mentioned alongside Peter Kay, Michael McIntyre and Les Dennis. That won't offend the bride or the groom’s mad Aunt Doris and result in you being forcibly removed from the building by the bride's brothers while her angry mother gives you the evil eye.
"Ladies and Gentlemen, I have some bad news - after writing and re-writing, editing and re-editing, the very shortest I could make this speech is one hour and sixteen minutes. But don't worry, I'm not going to do the whole thing right now... instead, here are the worst five minutes."
"Best seven quid I've ever spent. Thanks guys. Lifesaver!"
Dan - Whitstable
"To be honest I didn't expect much for £5 but I have to say I thought your speech download is great on the day my speech went down a storm so thanks guys I owe you a drink."

Best Man Speech – The fear factor...
For many guys writing and giving a best man speech is one of the scariest things they'll ever do, one in fact the most common fear is a fear of public speaking. So if you're already getting nervous then take some solace in the fact that you're not alone, this is a pretty normal reaction.
Then there is the fact that you have quite possibly never written a formal speech before let alone a best man’s speech. Here at StBM we can take away all the fear for you. Not only do we have years of experience in writing speeches our team have also written for stand-up comedians, TV, radio even pantos (oh yes we have!) and in our speech building system you'll find material unique to us.
How can you get a totally original best man speech?
Lots of best man speeches end up using the same jokes that people have heard time and time again. But at Simply the Best Man as well as some tried and tested gags we have hundreds of jokes you won't find anywhere else on the internet. We are constantly updating our speech database so you can be sure that you'll be using material no one will have heard before.
With our best man speech system you'll get not only professional comedy writing but we'll also give you all the tools and tips you need on how to construct your speech, all the important details that have to be included. And our special speech building system will also give you great tips on how to deliver the speech on the day.
You can get your full speech for just £6.99 for a 15 day access pass. That's less than the cost of a round of drinks. Yes, there are other speech writing pages out there but StBM are proud of the fact that we're the only service you'll find driven by professional comedy writers. So for just seven of your English pounds you'll get something truly original and a sure fire winner with gags you won’t find anywhere else on the interweb.
How does StBM's Best Man Speech system work?
On our Speech Writing Guide page you'll find the complete set up of everything you have to include in your speech, all the formal pieces you have to include (thanking the groom, mentioning the parents, etc), the traditional speech layout as well as simple do's and don'ts to get it right.
Then once you log into the system you’ll get the complete speech set up and access to our database of over 4000 ice breakers, jokes, quotes and comedic hand grenades to throw at the groom to make sure your speech is a total success.
You'll find each basic phase outlined in a step by step framework and hundreds of jokes and speech inserts for that part of your speech. Simply click on the jokes you'll like and they'll be added to your unique best man speech template. Once you have all the pieces in place you can then edit the speech to add the correct names and add any stories or jokes of your own.
Once happy that you have everything in place you can either save the speech to review and edit at a later date or print out your complete speech ready for the big day.
What if I'm still stuck?
If you find you're still having problems or have any worries at all over your wedding speech you can contact our team and we'll check it out for you, give it a good going over and if needed, we'll kick it into shape for you.
We've got your back Jack...
We'll help you through the process every step of the way. Our team have written professionally for all manner of performers as well as having performed themselves all over the world. Jumping on a stage or being handed a microphone is something that is second nature to our chaps however even we have baulked at writing and delivering our own best man speeches (yes that's plural, one of the downfalls of being a comedy writer is you do tend to get handed the best man noose all too frequently as everyone wants to hear a funny speech on their special day) and we are well aware of the fact that a best man speech is a little bit different.
Standing on stage introduce acts at Glastonbury is fine, standing in front of a room full of someone's nearest and dearest while everyone hangs on your every word is slightly more nerve wracking which is why we put this website together. We want to help other guys get it right on the big day. That’s why we cover every aspect of your speech and will be on hand if you still have any queries.
