Meaningful and Sentimental Best Man Speech

Good afternoon ladies and gentlemen. I would like to echo the groom's sentiments and mention that all the bridesmaids look truly beautiful, indeed.

Also, I'd like to say that the bride looks absolutely stunning today, as for the groom he just looks stunned. I am on a strict time limit from the bride, so the more you laugh at my jokes, the quicker my speech will be.

It is beautiful to see so many loving family members and friends here to share in this occasion, especially those who have traveled some distances to

be here with us today. For those of you who don't know me, I have been a friend of the groom's for seven years. He has many special friends, and haying the privilege of being chosen as his best man, from such esteemed company, is an honor the likes of which I have never had bestowed upon me.

I like to think that my selection as one of the best men is not really because your other friend canceled on you, but because I am one of the few people in the room and indeed alive that has actually seen you hit a homerun.

To be called a best man on a day like this is somewhat of a paradox. For today belongs to only one man, and that's you. No matter the size and liberality of the thoughts and tokens provided to you today you have already attained the greatest gift a man can wish for; the love of a woman as beautiful and caring as the bride.

I have had the distinct pleasure of knowing, for a considerable portion of my life, both of them individually, before knowing them as a couple. The beautiful girl that every boy in our class was madly in love with and the boy from the baseball team, who I didn't like much at the time. Spending time with the two of them is like slipping into a surreal realm where true love exists twenty-four hours a day seven days a week. To see two people care for and adore each other as much as they do is something truly special. When all the wishes of good luck and happiness are forgotten after today, I have no doubt that the love you both have for each other will last you many lifetimes over.

Now would probably be a good time to bring up some dirt on the groom and tell you all how the bride has changed...
