Our solution? See the best man speech example number two below!!
Just so you know - both these speeches were crowd pleasers at weddings.
Our advice is always to write your own speech from the heart but these two best man speech examples free on both this page and the next should be enough to both provide some inspiration and also clarify how you should structure your speech.

Good day to all of you,
I wont take up much of your time,
make a best man speech, is what I'll do,
And hell, it might as well rhyme.
For those of you who don't know me
My name is [John] the best man

You could say I'm his biggest fan
I'm not very used to speaking in public
It's actually much harder than you think
So if you see me at the bar after this
Please say congrats...and offer to buy me a drink
