Dunno if it's cliche but I've always wanted to do a joke and tie it in with the greek(?) tale of how the whole wedding ring custom came to be and bring it home with a ball and chain joke.

Or just say you're happy for the both of them, that they fit well, and you hope to have what they have one day? Make it short so you can get back to drunk.

try and be funny. it helps if you make fun of the groom and bride a little bit. since you're the best man, say something more about the groom. remember to keep it clean. you don't want to stand up there and say something along the lines of "yeah, they were both drunk when they met and they had sex in the bathroom. from that moment, i knew they were destined to be together."

Is the Best Man speech the one you deliver as a toast during the reception after the ceremony?

If so, it's not the biggest thing in the world. Just stand up for a minute, tell him how proud you are, mention one or two fond memories of your youth together, and then wish him the best, and tell him you'll always be there for him.

It's really nothing more than a moment for you to inject yourself into his memory of his wedding day.

Tell him you love him.

Don't need to make it complicated.

Bringing up a memory of him where he proved to you that he was honorable or wise or courageous or some **** like that is always nice. It's even better if you tell this awesome, gripping, watery-eyed story and get the crowd all emotionally invested and then end with, "Nah, I'm just ****in' with ya'll. He's an ******* for real. Let's get drunk!"

Tell them to both put their hands out and have the groom place his hand on top of the brides. Tell them that it symbolizes their love and being close and together or some bullshit. Then say "and remember that he will always have the upper hand."
