Help with the best man guide

The good, the bad and the ugliest of best man moments are being sought by Halifax Round Table.

The club is compiling a definitive guide to the perfect best man’s speech and is looking for anecdotes from people from around West Yorkshire.

John Payne, president of the club, said: “Our members are well placed for understanding the stress of being a best man. We want people in Halifax to send us their favourite best man stories, anecdotes and if possible speeches.

“We know that many people have their weddings filmed nowadays, so we’re hoping to receive some great clips of what to do and say - or perhaps what not to do.

“Our aim is to use the responses 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.”
