TO MAKE SURE THE BEST MAN DOESN’T GIVE AN X-RATED SPEECH Drunken mates + grand­mas = po­ten­tial disas­ter zone, so it’s un­der­stand­able that you’re a bit ner­vous about your hus­band-tobe’s beer-lov­ing best friend over­shar­ing about drunken hol­i­days and bed­room an­tics. “The best man’s speech is a high­light of the day and there is al­ways pres­sure to do some­thing amus­ing,” Jo points out. “How­ever, you should brief the best man fully on what is ex­pected of him on the day – hope­fully, when he sees the im­por­tance of the role, he will re­alise that a sim­ple, heart­felt and gen­uinely amus­ing speech will al­ways win over the au­di­ence. Anec­dotes should be fun and witty; in­ap­pro­pri­ate sto­ries or shock con­fes­sions will usu­ally turn the au­di­ence cold.”
