Local Round Table guide for ‘best men’

In an effort to help men through one of the most stressful days of their life, Kirriemuir Round Table has released its definitive guide to writing the best man’s speech.

Kirriemuir Round Table asked people in Angus to submit their speeches, advice and incriminating footage all contributing to the final result - a foolproof best man’s speech manual that can be viewed at www.roundtable.co.uk/bestmanguide. Jason Thomson, vice president of Round Table, said: “The best man’s speech is notorious for daring jokes and embarrassing anecdotes, but these can go spectacularly wrong. Understandably, the speech is something that best men across the UK worry about, and from reading some of the stories we’ve had sent in, it seems a lot of them end up making hilarious gaffes. If we can help just one man to avoid red faces and awkward silences at his best friend’s wedding breakfast, we’ll be very happy!”

The guide includes a comprehensive list of do’s and don’ts, ranging from good common sense tips like starting with a joke, to obscure but important hints, such as not re-using material from the internet.

He added: “For men in across the country, the manual will provide a welcome modern day reference when it comes to doing their wedding day duty”

“We’ve been overwhelmed with emails offering advice for would-be best men from both our members and the general public, and we’d like to thank them for helping us to create such a comprehensive, well rounded guide.”
