Quite often, it can be just as good to know what you shouldn't do as it is to know what you should do. When it comes to writing a best man speech there are many things that can go wrong. As well as the fact that you could end up feeling humiliated and embarrassed if you make a mess of the speech, you could also take away from the big day for the bride and groom and everyone else who attends.

You will also want to keep in mind that most weddings will have at least a few people making videos of the event; if you mess up you could be the source of embarrassment for years to come. So when it comes to writing a best man speech, the following are some of the things that you need to avoid.

– You have to put any problems that you have in your life aside on the day of the wedding. Do not use the speech as an opportunity to tell everyone about your problems or to air any grievances that you may have. You need to keep in mind, that this is not about you it is not your day. Never come across as bitter, angry or negative when giving your speech.

– Some people go a bit overboard in their praise of the bride and groom to such an extent that it sort of feels sickly sweet and insincere. Be positive but don't get too carried away with the compliments.

– Make sure that you are thinking about the guests who will be at the wedding so that you do not have offensive material in your speech. Sometimes you will find that things you say in the pub are not so suitable at a wedding. Avoid being vulgar because you are almost certain to offend at least some of your audience.

– If you are not known for being funny then this is likely to be the same at the wedding. Doing a comedy routine is a huge risk, and if you haven't got what it takes your performance might be subject to ridicule for years to come.
