Best Man Free Wedding Speech

Hello everyone, and welcome to Dan and Maria's wedding. My name is Scott, and I was lucky enough to be chosen the best man on this glorious day. It truly is an honor. Maria - you look absolutely stunning today, and Dan - I give you credit for trying.

For those of you that don't know who I am, I have known Dan since the first grade. Since then, I've seen it all. From little league to drunken frat house parties, there have been a lot of good memories and a lot of funny stories. I won't bore you with all of those stories.

What I will tell you about is how I knew Maria was the one for Dan. The night they met was different. I could tell something was up. Dan came home sober on a Saturday night.

He proceeded to go on and on for about three hours about this girl from his Business Law class while I tried to stay awake. I finally ran out of beer at 4:00am and had to cut him off to go to bed.

That was the day I lost my drinking buddy!

Since then I have seen Dan and Maria's relationship blossom into what it is today. A relationship full of love, happiness and hopefully many good years of drinking games. Don't let her fool you; Maria can drink any man in this room under the table!

All joking aside, I wish you both the best of everything and a happy, loving marriage. In closing, Dan, I would like to leave you with a quote about how to have a happy marriage:

"I have learned that only two things are necessary to keep one's wife happy. First, let her think she's having her own way. And second, let her have it."

Ladies and gentlemen, please join me in toasting the new Mr. and Mrs. O'Malley. May you have many years of wedded bliss!

Maid of Honor Free Wedding Speech

I would like to welcome everyone to Greg and Brenda's wedding. We could not have picked a more beautiful spring day for a wedding.

As the sister of the bride, I am truly honored to be here today to witness my little sister getting married. I will attempt to get through this without crying!

I remember growing up, Brenda would always be the one dreaming of a fairytale wedding, and I can say that you finally got your fairytale wedding complete with a prince named Greg. Greg, you are truly a great man, and I am so happy that you are now part of our family.

However, you might not feel the same way after meeting our extended family today!

Over the years I witnessed the different phases of Brenda's dating. First, it was the jock. Next, the wanna-be movie star. There was the week-long relationship with the dog trainer. Who would have thought you would have came to your senses finally and marry a doctor?

Brenda, you have always been there for me over the years, and I truly thank you for being the best sister in the world. I would not be so successful in life if it wasn't for your inspiration and great ideas. Not only is Brenda a great sister, she is the best friend you could ever have and a smart business partner. I'd like to leave you both with some words of wisdom for a happy marriage.

Greg - "The husband who wants a happy marriage should learn to keep his mouth shut and his checkbook open."

And Brenda - "The best way to get most husbands to do something is to suggest that perhaps they're too old to do it."

Please stand and join me in toasting to the newlyweds, Mr. and Mrs. Jacobs.
