`This book certainly makes the speech a pleasure rather than a terrifying prospect.'
-- Asian Groom & Man
From the Author
This book will help you turn a terrifying prospect into a piece of wedding cake!
It's in two parts. Part One tells you everything you need to know to become an impressive, efficient and effective best man. In Part Two you'll find out how to prepare and present a unique and memorable speech that will sparkle like vintage champagne. I've also included lots of checklists and website addresses which will make life easier for you.
While the basic responsibilities of a best man have remained largely unchanged over the years, the world has moved on. The key is to respect traditions of the past but also keep up with the times. Unorthodox interpretations of your role are no longer a breach of social etiquette.
Similarly, while your speech should include a few time-honoured crowd-pleasers which people will expect to hear, there remains plenty of scope to stamp your own personality on it. I'll tell you how!
It's a serious business being a best man. There's a lot to do, a lot to remember and a lot to say. You owe it to the bride and groom - and to yourself - to give it your best shot. With this handbook at your side you can become the complete best man!
Let's make a deal. I'll give you all the advice, tips and strategies you'll need to do a fantastic job. In return, all I ask of you is your time, your mind and your commitment.
I really enjoyed writing this book and I hope you'll enjoy reading it. I've written loads of other books on weddings and wedding speeches, but I genuinely believe this is my best. I'm delighted to say my publisher agrees! I've kept it simple and chatty because that's the language of easy communication. If you have any comments on the book, I'd love to hear them. Write to me at How To Books and I promise to reply.
