The best man who throws it back to the night you met.

 

When the best man just so happens to be the accidental Cupid in the relationship, there's no guarantee he won't tell it like it is when talking about how the bride and groom met—even if it might make them blush from embarassment. This best man made the whole room laugh while telling the tale of how he brought this couple together. This is exactly the type of hilarious speech material you should think about for your own toast. It's the perfect example of how to give a funny speech without roasting the couple.

Something tells us Ali and Austin's kids are going to have one cool uncle.
