I am a little worried about the speech at ours, lol. Fiance picked two friends to do the honors and they are very reserved, not particularly humorous and just a tad awkward. They’re nice guys and his friends so of course I’m not saying a word, but I’m a little nervous their speech is going to suck and that it.l be awkward silence throughout!
What were your best man speeches like?

The best man (my DH’s best friend) is a goober, so I knew it was going to be funny. He was a little of both sweet and funny though. He does a lot of hunting with my husband, and so to open his speech he had given all the men guests duck calls to use before the speech. 🙂

Both speeches were really funny! The first one told the story about how HE was the reason we met i.e. he ditched the guys on NYE and they went to a different bar meeting me. 🙂 Funny, entertaining and poignant.
The second one the Bridesmaid or Best Man was quite tipsy. He was nervous, poor guy, so he kept drinking. The first part he gave Darling Husband a rose and like the Bachelor asked him to choose who he would give the final rose to, him or the other Groomsmen. It definitely got LOOOONG at some point but it was funny to watch again.
I wouldn’t worry! Alternate someone who would be a more entertaining speaker with someone who’s speech may be a little dry.
