I have recently been asked to be a best man in 2018. This is my second time at being a best man, however this time i have only know this person for a few years and don't have all the history that can often make up a great speech.

I am looking for some help with a structure for a great speech, that will have the right amount of humor and sincerity. The wedding is not until September 2018 but want to get onto it.

Hi Paul. I'm a professional writer, and would love to help you out!


I write for a variety of contexts. and have successfully helped many with speeches-especially with best man speeches! Every piece of writing I craft has the aim of inciting an emotional response and connecting with the audience-whether through laughter, wonder, or inspiration.


I would love to work with you and produce a speech that communicates the essence of your friendship, in a way that works for you. The previous best man speeches I helped write were a great success-please check out my profile for a reflection of this. and more of my work.


Thanks and kind regards,

Hi Paul,

I would love to help you with this speech, I am a comedian and certified Wedding Celebrant. I have seen countless wedding speeches and I know the best structure to keep the speech engaging and touching.

The most important thing with a Best Man's speech is to emphasise the good in the Groom and how it complements perfectly with the Bride's personality.

I'm sure I can help you write a touching and memorable speech that will thrill the newlyweds.

Keen to hear from you,

Michele

Hi Paul
I am a professional speaker and trainer in speech-writing and presenting. As a Certified Speaking Professional (the highest internationally-recognised accreditation for speakers) I can guarantee you great content - and hints on how to deliver it with most impact. I don't provide 'generic' content - I will discuss the event and guests-of-honour with you so we can produce something personalised that sounds just like you wrote it!
I am new to Airtasker trying to get some completions quickly, so I am making a very low offer. I can provide references to my coaching clients if required.

I've written best man speeches and wedding vows a few times now.

The years you've known the groom must have made a great impression on him, so let's use that to create a speech that's both humorous and sincere.

I'm a professional writer and welcome the opportunity to help.

Hi!

I'm a copywriter from the beautiful, fresh west coast of Australia. There is so much to enjoy and explore here - white sand beaches, endless sunshine, and my favourite: delicious smoothie bars.

But see... the thing with smoothie bars and adventures is that they cost money. And so I write! I write really good things for important folks, like yourself. And you know what? I love it. I love making my clients happy.

So let me make you happy. Hire me. Today!

Hey there!
I’m an English teacher and playwright. Sometimes, it’s easier to put what you want to say in poetry form. It makes public speaking easier too! Not necessarily the whole speech, but a component of it. I’m happy to help you out with some key information to get started.

Mate, I was best man for both my brothers. While not a qualified writer or anything, I’m pretty **** good at speaking...

I spent 15 years in the Army, a few of them as an instructor. I’ll do better than help you “write a speech”, I’ll help you get to the stage where when you talk, it’ll look like you’re just speaking from the heart, AND like you’ve been this guy’s sworn brother since childhood...

Further to that - I’ll be happy to coach you on some of the “old school” best man stuff: who you need to work with, and what you need to look out for and troubleshoot to make sure the bride has the Best Wedding Ever®.

Hope to hear from you. I fly into Melbourne tomorrow.

Hi Paul,

I'm a comedian and a teacher, and I speak three languages. I have years of experience in speech making which give me an excellent understanding of structure, as well as humour, audience engagement, and sincerity.

This sounds like a straightforward task for me, and my quote reflects that. Let me know.

Cheers,

Josh

Paul, I could kill this job for you, I’ve done a couple myself and I always manage to get some good laughs. I will make it professional and cater it exactly the way you want it. I know it doesn’t count for much but 3 weeks ago I got a message on the way to work that my son had forgotten about his school captain speech and it was that day. When I got to work I busted out an awesome speech for him in about 10-15 mins and now he’s gonna be school captain next year.

But seriously I used to write custom poems for people on an app called fiver and I never had a bad review. I’ll work through it with you and review it however many times you need

Hey bud,
I've been best man twice in the last 12 months and used a similar speech for both occasions. I promise you on my nonna's grave that I have had a lot of people approach me at the wedding and say "that was the best speech I've ever heard". My speech will make people laugh, make people cry, make people cheer and make you literally the most loved man in the room aside from the groom himself.

I have given public speeches since I was 7 years old (therefore over 20 years of experience) to rooms filled with over 100 people. In High School I was a prefect, head of the formal committee, Year 12 formal Master of Ceremonies, Year 12 farewell host, and part of the debating club.

I also have attended over 60 weddings in 3 years as I am a wedding photographer, so I know exactly what to say and what garners a positive reaction from the crowd and the couple, and what NOT to say. The last thing you want is to offend or say anything in bad taste. You want to be a balance of entertaining and yet deep and heartfelt.

I'm happy to meet with you and teach you how to deliver the speech as well as how to balance it accordingly to the culture and nature of both married couple and their families and friends.

Let me know bud!

Hi Paul
I may be a female, but boy do I know how to write a best man speech. I've written ministerial speeches for a living for a while now, so I know exactly how to structure an engaging speech. I've actually written a best man speech for an airtasker previously and the review can be found on my profile. I'll get you to answer some questions about the couple to help me with the drafting. I married 5 months ago, so pretty familiar with what is and isn't appropriate for a wedding. Happy to also put the speech through my husband to see how he'd feel if it were directed at him. I'll put the draft through to you once complete for suggested changes by yourself

Hi Paul,

I recently gave a speech as a Maid Of Honour at my best friends wedding, so I understand the importance and pressure of constructing the perfect piece.

I would love to talk further to gauge your sense of humour and perhaps read some experiences you have shared with the couple in order to assist in crating the perfect speech for you.

I look forward to working with you.

Thanks,
Sarah
