This Guy's Moving Song Just Raised The Bar For Best Man Speeches
Apr 10, 2015
Daniel says that he wrote it as a regular speech, but as he played back a recording he made of it he realized it had musical potential. Starting and ending with Sam Smith's "Stay With Me" and peppering in a few other classics in between, his speech had the bride and groom going back-and-forth between rolling laughter and heartfelt tears. The video has gone viral, and is raising the bar for best men everywhere.
Traditionally, the best man's speech at a wedding is usually cringeworthy. There's probably some bad jokes, a few inappropriate and embarrassing stories, some forced laughter and then it's over. For Daniel Buccheri, a Melbourne-based musician and the best man at his brother's wedding, it was the speech of a lifetime.
