I had a massive honour last week

 

I’d been asked a year ago one of my best mates, Gaz Andrew, to be best man

 

Having never done it before there was a certain amount of trepidation

 

The best mans speech can literally make or break a wedding

 

And what I didn’t want was for it to be remembered for it ruining the day

 

I knew that Gaz’s wife to be would kill me

 

So I knew I had roughly a year to try and get it sorted

 

I thought I could just do a bit at a time and keep adding to it

 

15 minutes was the maximum time limit so it didn’t have to be crazy long

 

As always though I waited till 2 weeks before it to get it written down

 

Having known Gaz since our early days at Somerset back in 2000 then there were plenty of stories I could put in but I had to make the tone right

 

When id done the first draft I did the best thing I could’ve

 

Practiced it in front of a couple of the lads

 

This was key

 

It allowed be to change it up and edit it

 

Then a week later I did it again, and went well so I knew I was on the right track

 

Then I rehearsed it to myself so much that I could do it without the cue cards

 

So when I got to the day it went like an absolute dream, couldn’t have gone any better, and didn’t manage to offend anyone

 

But the key thing again- practice

 

Just like in learning a skill or training

 

Get your hands dirty

 

Understand what you need to do, make sure you are comfortable and have covered all bases before you start so if anything happens to put you off you can recover

 

This off season hopefully you know exactly what you are doing to improve

 

And if you need a hand the Inner Circle can guide you in the right direction

It’s a lot less scary than doing the Best Mans speech!

 

Think differently
