Wedding

My older brother is getting married next Saturday, and I'm his Best Man. I just realised today that this means I'm supposed to give a toast at the reception. Oy! I've never been much of a public speaker and I'm really not sure how this stuff is supposed to go. I think that perhaps a short funny poem is more my style than a normal sentimental toast, so I'm going to do my best to write up something quick and cute.

Oy.

Good luck! I'm going to be my cousin's maid of honor. I'm glad the only things I have to worry about are finding a cute dress and throwing a good party. lol. I'd be so embarassed to give a speech!

A friend of mine was recently best man for one of his friends and had to give the toast. No biggie, except he does not like his friend's new wife at all. Sure, he could gush on and on about Mike, but when it came time to say how "she's a great girl," etc., he couldn't rehearse it with a straight face. So he skipped the majority of that stuff, and this is what he came up with. It could be a fun ending line for you, too, if you're grasping at straws.

"Take this opportunity to put your wife's hand in yours, smile at her, and remember this moment, because this is the last time that you'll ever have the upper hand."

That would work if my brother wasn't A-1 perfecto plus. I know no embarassing stories about him at all. But I think I can come up with something funny, at least. And short. Short is good. :)

That certainly makes a difference. Oops.
