Best-man stories wanted

HUCKNALL Round Table is helping to produce a guide on delivering the perfect best man’s speech.

The traditional speech is supposed to be one of the highlight of a wedding reception, although occasionally it can be controversial or downright insulting!

Now the Round Table wants to hear about your experiences to make life easier for future best men — and prevent them making the same mistakes.

President John Payne says members were well placed for understanding the stresses of being a best man.

“We are appealing to people in Hucknall to send us their favourite best-man stories, anecdotes and, if possible, speeches. We know many people have their wedding filmed nowadays, so we’re hoping to receive some great clips of what to do or say or, perhaps, examples of what not to do or say.

“Our aim is to use the responses we receive from people in Hucknall, and those from Round Table’s network of more than 500 groups, to produce a simple, but authoritative, guide to delivering the perfect best-man’s speech, created by those who know best — the men who’ve been there.”
