Humorous Wedding Speech – Two Best Men
Good evening Ladies and Gentlemen.
For those of you that are wondering why there are two best men standing up here, it’s perfectly simple. Arthur wanted to appoint a best man for the occasion, but sadly couldn’t find one, so he got two barely competent ones instead.

I was better than him at football, I made sure I had at least one penny more than him to buy sweets with, I was a year older, an inch taller and a size bigger in shoes. We'd measure everything, well, nearly everything! It's fair to say that over the years he has overtaken me in some things, like finding a terrific girl to marry.
You’ve married a beauty Arthur, Linda is such a kind hearted girl and will do anything it seems for her family and friends. Except let me take you down the pub on a Monday night to watch the televised game. Despite this, I consider her a friend and always look forward to being in her company. But such a beautiful, kind and intelligent girl could have the choice of any man, which...
