Best Man Wedding Speech
This is the first time Kevin's ever brought me dinner and I?m too nervous to eat it.
For those of you who don't know me, I'm Kevin's younger brother and my full name is Bobby What are you drinking, so if you see me at the bar later
don't hesitate to call me by my full name. Unfortunately every silver lining does have A cloud, and that is that you've all got to listen to me for the next 5 minutes.
I'd just like to thank Kevin on behalf of the bridesmaids for his kind words I think you will all agree that they have done a fantastic job today and look absolutely beautiful.
I'd also like to thank everyone for coming today to celebrate the marriage of Kevin and Lisa. Personally I wish you'd all stayed at home so I didn't
have to do this!!
First of all, I want to say a little bit about being the best man. I feel the title "best man" says a bit too much. The way I see it, if I am the best man, what the hell is Lisa doing with Kevin? So, I think I will be happy just saying that I'm a pretty good man, And Kevin can be the best man tonight.
Actually, being the best man is an awesome responsibility and one that I
don't take lightly. In life you can count your true friends on one hand,
these being people who will be there in your hour of need. I remember when
my hair starting falling out, Kevin was there kindly rubbing Immac into my
head, when I lost my job, Kevin was there and When my girlfriend dumped me,
Kevin was there. In fact the more I think about it Jay you're a bloody jinx.
I did a lot of research to make sure that I wouldn't be forgetting anything, and came up with a checklist of what my duties should be.
BRING OUT LIST
Before I get to the list though, I want to share a little more about what I found in my research. I read a book that stated that there are three key
elements to a successful wedding day. They are as follows:
The Aisle - The longest walk you'll ever take.
The Altar - The place where two become one.
The Hymn - The celebration of the marriage.
I think Lisa must have read the same book, because after taking the vows
earlier today, I'm pretty sure I heard her mumbling those same three things.
- - - Aisle Altar Hymn.
Ok, now back to the checklist. This checklist that I came up with included
each of the following.
1. Making sure his Face and Hair are in order (If god couldn't do it, what chance have I got.)
2. Keeping Kevin's mechanical hands away from the wedding car so that we actually got here
3. See that angry ex-girlfriends are kept at bay" - Thankfully
the foot and mouth epidemic saw off most of them, and I think the rest are
actually out celebrating as I speak.
4. And finally, make a speech at the wedding reception, so I thought I would give a little bit of background into Kevin for those who
don't know him as well as me. So here goes.
Kevin was born 15th December 1971 at Purley Hospital and weighed just 6lb
