AISLE, ALTAR, HYMN, that'll probably get the best laugh from those un-married and low resigned groan from those who are...

I closed my best man speech with,


"If you ever need any help or a favour, dont ever hesitate to call..... (pause for the arghs from the guests then follow it up with)
"The Samaritans".
Worked a treat.

You could also adjust this one slightly to come from your perspective. Again it got a huge laugh.

"One of my duties as best man, is getting Matt prepared for his big day. I made sure that he was properly dressed and arrived at the church sober and on time. My one disappointment though, would have to be failing to arrange his last request as a single man. "

"Unfortunately due to very strong protests from the "Do-gooders" at the Sheep Welfare Council, they wouldn’t allow it to happen. "

And another

Matt is actually a man of many hidden talents…
And as soon as I find one I will let you know!

Thanks for all the posts. Some good material, some of which I can use! Keep them rolling in

I am going to be a very proud father on the day. Claire and her fiancée Chris have been together for 9 years and both work in the industry, she for Spinlock and Chris as general manager at the UKSA in Cowes.

Thanks again

First of all you walk up the Aisle with your father.
Then when you have walked up the Aisle you arrive at the Altar.
Once you have arrived at the Altar we all sing a Hymn.

So all you have to say to yourself is................
AISLE ALTAR HYMN. AISLE ALTAR HYMN. AISLE ALTAR HYMN.

Have a great day Chris.
Does the best joke get a future tube discount.
Well the wedding was spectacular. Took place the Saturday before last, and the sun shone all day. Only one minor problem was the band, who were travelling to Somerset from the Isle of Wight, broke down on the A303 with a cylinder head gasket blown and they just made it by 9.30pm in a hire van!!
Thanks Captain pugwash, used AISLE ALTAR HYMN which got a good laugh. Call me when you want a new set of tubes!!

Delighted that it all went well Chris. They look like a very happy couple indeed. Glad the joke raised a laugh. It has never failed me.
