    My older brother (akkarin101/christov101) is getting married on the weekend, don't worry if you don't recognize the name I don't think he's been uA active since 2011/2012ish

    I was asked to be his best man.
    Part of this means doing a speech.
    Not so good with the speechifying or public speaking or talking fancy like or not getting stage-fright..

    So.
    If anyone has some tips or suggestions for me in regards to this, fire away and leave as many helpful comments as you'd like!

    Make fun of him and keep saying you want a garter dance. That's how the last wedding I went to went down :p

    Just remember this is their night, not a 21st.. So keep the jokes clean and sweet, and only let out any confidences he may have shared with you if they show how much he loves his now wife. Yep, thats right, get soppy.

    Dont be afraid to get personal, as people will identify with honesty.

    Good luck, and breathe

    I think Pointy has pretty much hit the nail on the head mate. Usually brothers/sisters have a story about when they were under 10 just to make people laugh. But don't talk about the time he went to a brothel.

    Pointy was definitely on point, clean jokes, mentioned the first night they met, tied it together with a fun story.

    People said I did pretty well with it, but I'm related to everyone who brought it up so time will tell on that one.

    On a side note Kwapple did a really nice speech (no heavy voice) didn't swear and only called the groom a faggot once so that was a roaring success :emoji_grinning:

    Gratz on the effort man. Many people don't like the spotlight and/or public speaking..

    As long as your Bro (and wife) were happy, that's all that matters.
