Do your homework

Watch other Irish best man videos for inspiration. This year the trend skyrocketed in popularity and there are literally hundreds of these videos available online.

Put pen to paper

Write a script – trust us, this will work a lot better than winging it on filming day. Draft in a few jokes that most of the wedding guests will get. Best buddies will always have ‘in jokes’ between you two – and that’s where they should stay.

It’s a no go

NEVER make jokes about the bride… There’s a time and place – her wedding day isn’t it. Stick to shaming the groom instead. Feel free to add in any video clips of dodgy dancing, old school photos or any material that you feel will enhance the video.

Cameo

Be humble

The wedding guests will be more than likely be blown away by the effort you went to in making the video, so be prepared for a standing ovation. But bear in mind, it’s the bride and groom’s day, so deflect the attention off you and back onto the happy couple ASAP.
