One of the joys of being the best man is that the best man has an opportunity to toast the bride and groom. This can be done well, or it can be done not so well. I am sure everyone has heard toasting horror stories when the best man said something offensive or inappropriate. This article is designed to provide the best man with some tips to toasting so that he will not mess up or say something that will make hime the laughing stock of the party.

One of the first keys to sucessful wedding toasting is to be brief. If you can't say something nice in two or three minutes, you probably can't say it in 20. Since the wedding reception is on a tight time schedule, taking too long for the toast can really throw things off. You audience will also appreciate brevity as well. Generally, the shorter you can make your toast, the better it will be for everyone.

The next key is to say something nice and uplifting. Some ideas to try are to try to find something that you appreciate about the couple and some ways that your friendship with one or both of them has personally enriched you. Try to avoid inside jokes since many people at the wedding may not be privy to knowledge that you have. Do not assume that people at the reception know everything about the couple. The nicer and more complimentary your toast is, the harder it is to go wrong.

If you can, try to use humor. This is not for everyone, but for some people it will come off well. Stay away from crude humor or anything that paints the bride or groom in a derogatory light. Do not mention anything about divorce. Try to encouage the couple in their relationship and celebrate with them. If you can, try to mention things that the couple and the guests will be able to identify with.

The main tip is to prepare a speech that is conducive to your personality. Try to be yourself and sound normal and you will have more credibility with your audience.
