Writing a winning best man speech can be a daunting task. If you are falling behind, we have you covered with a list of a few wedding jokes that never fail.

The classic tier cake joke that never fails to warm up the room. However, check that there is in fact a tier cake present at the wedding. Otherwise, the joke will make no sense.

“It's been an emotional day. Even the cake is in tiers”

If you wish to get personal, you can start picking on the unusual quirks the groom may have.

For instance, if the groom is known to be thrifty, a joke about the drinks bill will be great:

“We have now reached the point in the proceedings where we get to witness the groom shift uncomfortably in his chair and grip the tablecloth in nervous anticipation. That’s right, I’ve been asked to give him the drinks bill!”

Jokes about the groom

Making the best man speech personal works wonders. If you have had a close relationship with the groom, pick out funny instances and anecdotes that show the funny side of the groom.

For instance, if the groom is chatty:

“[Groom] has the ability to talk for hours about any subject. He can even go on for days if he actually knows anything about it!”

Similarly, a joke about how you compliment the groom can also work great:

“[Groom] is an amazing person, and the best friend I’ve ever had. He’s done so many wonderful things that it would be difficult to name them all. He’s funny, sensitive, char… Charming? Sorry buddy, I’m having trouble reading your handwriting here.”

If you shared a room with the groom at some point, and know that he is bad cook, the joke can be something like:

“When [Groom] and I used to share an apartment, it was his job to cook the food, and it was my job to ensure none of the smoke alarms had batteries.”

Conclusion

This would also be a good time to remind you that inclusion of inside or vulgar jokes might not be a good idea. Keep the stories of the Algarve stag do for when you are alone with your mate.
