Summer is coming up, and so is the favorite season for the engaged to throw their wedding bash! Besides the ceremony, bouquet toss, wedding toasts, and the cake, one of the most awaited parts of the wedding day might be the speeches, especially one from the best man who, by the time it's his turn to speak, might have had one too many glasses of bubbly!

Considering that the best man is often the groom's best pal or brother who knows all the groom's filthiest secrets and embarrassing moments, it's almost natural for the best man to include some funny jokes in the speech. Be it the opening, the middle, or the ending of the speech, there's no wrong time to crack a few funny jokes about the groom. Yet, if you want to leave a long-lasting impression on the guests, best man speech jokes are best said at the start and end of the speech—to come in and go out with a bang! And although we can't prepare the speech for you (apparently, AI can do that), we don't mind tossing some best man jokes your way, which you could use in your speech to liven up the celebration and get the newlyweds and guests to hoot with laughter!

Below, we've compiled a list of funny best man jokes you may personalize and employ when prepping your best man's speech. If you found any of these wedding speech jokes worthy of including in the best man's heartfelt confession to the newlyweds, let us know by giving those an upvote. Also, if you are interested in even more good jokes to crack at the upcoming betrothal, check out our post featuring 100+ wedding jokes.

"'Sorry everyone, this speech will be a little bit off the cuff. I figured I would have more time to prepare. [husband and wife] started dating in 1998, and it took them 7 years to get engaged. It took another 6 for the wedding to happen, so I figured I would have at least a few months between the ceremony and the reception to figure this thing out.'

It gives a nice bit of background on the couple, is about as safe as you can get, and should get a few laughs."
