Wedding Speech â€“ Best Man Before I begin with Leonâ€™s character assassination, I should probably introduce myself, as a lot of you donâ€™t know meâ€¦my name is Andy. My full name is actually Andy WhatcanIgetyou. For those of you who I meet in the bar later, Iâ€™d appreciate it if you could Use my full name. Iâ€™d also like to remind you, that the more you laugh at my gags the faster my speech will be deliveredâ€¦so itâ€™s in your own best interestâ€¦ I think being a best man can be a very nerve racking experienceâ€¦(pause)â€¦ if thereâ€™s one person here this afternoon feeling nervous, apprehensive and queasy about what lies aheadâ€¦.then itâ€™s probably because youâ€™ve just married Leon. Anyway, I wanted to take this opportunity, not only to demolish Leonâ€™s reputation and character, but also to talk about Leon AND Lucy as a couple. In September 1998, Leon and I both started and met at Bath University. I think, in hindsight, going to Bath was one of the best decisions Leon ever made, as a few days in, he met Lucy. And from what I remember about 1st year (which frankly isnâ€™t a lot), within a few weeks they were spending a lot of their time together and started to get quite closeâ€¦ I remember myself and the other lads in our house used to constantly badger Leon to make an advance. And as youâ€™ll probably know, Leon IS a bit of a fast mover when it comes to the ladies ..(pauseâ€¦), so it took him only 1 year (pauseâ€¦) (and severa... ...st doesnâ€™t like to interrupt. On a more serious note, thereâ€™s not many best men who can describe both the groom and the bride as a true friend, and in that, I think Iâ€™m very lucky. It is an honour, albeit a most terrifying one, to have been asked to be the best man here today. But if Iâ€™m honest I do feel a certain relief to see the end of my duties in sight, as Iâ€™m totally certain that Leon will never have a need to call on met to be his best man again. As a final thought â€“ â€œyou donâ€™t marry someone because you can live with them, you marry them because you simply cannot live without themâ€â€¦ Ladies and Gentlemen, please be upstanding and join me in a toastâ€¦ to Mr and Mrs [groomâ€™s surname]â€¦Leon and Lucy
