It is not uncommon for the groom’s brother to be named as the best man. In fact, the best man in a wedding is often the groom’s best friend, the bride’s brother, or the groom’s brother. Among the many tasks of a best man, he has to deliver a best man wedding speech at the wedding reception. Here, now, is an example of a best man speech for younger brother.
You may begin by a short greeting and a brief introduction about yourself. You may say, “Good evening, ladies and gentlemen! For those of you who may be wondering, I am the groom’s younger brother and best man. Since this is my first time to deliver a speech in front of a huge and intimidating group of people, I ask you all to please bear with me. I must admit that I haven’t been so keen on preparing this speech, and more so delivering it.”
“Anyway, I wish to congratulate the bride and the groom, who also happens to be my older brother. To the bride, I hope you haven’t yet regretted your decision to marry big bro. Kidding aside, I really am happy for the both of you. I have not known two people who are more perfect for each other than you two.” Here, you will see that injecting humor into your speech catches the audience’s interest and pulls their attention and focus towards you.
After your funny and interesting introduction, you may follow your speech by thanking the parents, the person who presided over the ceremony, and the guests. This will be a good example: “On behalf of my brother and his lovely bride, I would like to thank all of you for being here today. You have made this occasion more memorable for the bride and groom, and I’m sure that they are very happy to have shared this moment with the people they love and care about.”
“And so, now, may I ask you all to please raise your glasses to the bride and groom. May their marriage be stable, their love deep and true, and their bond strong and unbreakable.”
This, now, is a sample best man speech for younger brother.
