A Malaysian man claims he has been best man at over 1000 weddings. Unless he’s got a great speech he reuses all the time, he must really have a way with words! Here are some tips for giving the perfect best man speech.
- DO keep your speech personal.
- DO make a joke or two, but don’t go overboard with jokes.
- DO take the time to say what you want to say, but don’t take forever!
- DON’T swear or use offensive words.
- DO thank the people who helped make the day possible, especially the parents of the bride and groom. DON’T forget their names.
- DO try to relax before you get up to speak.
- DON’T drink so much that you can't keep your composure.
- DO speak loudly and clearly so everyone can hear you.
- DON’T make inappropriate or suggestive remarks. Keep your speech child and grandparent friendly!
- DON’T try too hard to be funny.
- DO make a note of anyone you want to thank or mention.
- DO write down your speech on little revision cards with bullet point reminders.
- DON’T say things you wouldn't want anyone to know about you. Don’t embarrass the bride and groom on their big day.
- DO practice your speech before the event.
- DON’T make fun of the wedding even if you dislike an aspect of the event.
- DO avoid potentially difficult subjects like having children (in case they can't), drug problems (in case either the bride or the families didn't know), excessive partying or womanising, money problems, or previous girlfriends.
- DO enjoy yourself!

Time for a Thursday tip :-)
An irritation or a breakout is the last thing you want on your special day!! Prepare in advance with facials starting a few months before and make sure your last facial is at least 1 week before the big day to help minimise the risk of irritations or breakouts on the day of your wedding.
See you next week for more!
Your wedding day is filled with many once in a lifetime moments, so it’s important that your wedding photographer has an “eye for the moment” in order to capture the events of the day as they unfold. He or she should create a collection of unposed and unexpected candids that reflect events and moments throughout your entire day. When viewed together as a whole, these shots should give an interesting representation of not just what you did, but also of what everyone else was up to! These pictures fill in the moments you might have missed, and create a picture perfect story of your big day.
However, not even the world’s best photographer can be in every place at once, and therefore many moments may be missed and go undocumented. But fortunately, help is at hand.
Ensuring that your guests have SnappyEverAfter installed on their smart phone will help give you piece of mind. While you’re busy being married, your guests will be busy helping you create the perfect wedding photo album with a simple and fun pocket sized app. And with SnappyEverAfter, there’s no need for developing photos and messing about with USB cables, so your gallery will be ready when you are. It’s fun, fast photography. Perfect!
This Thurday's wedding tip is also perfect for the budget savvy bride! Not only this, but buying bridesmaids dresses off the rack also means there is a higher chance of your bridesmaids getting a second wear out of the dress for another occassion afterwards :-) Handy!
