Then during the wedding reception when my best man was supposed to make his speech, he looked nervous and said he didn’t know what to say.
When I married my wife, I honestly should have put more thought into who I was going to have as my best man. I decided to choose a friend of mine who I always hung out with a lot. We weren’t the best of friends but he was usually there for me when I needed help with something or I wanted to go out for a night of drinking. I asked him if he could take care of the HVAC rental for the wedding. We had a huge tent set up and we wanted to have the cooling systems in there to keep everybody comfortable in the tent. He said he was on it and it would be no problem. On the day of our wedding, we saw there were no cooling systems in the tent and my wife was starting to freak out. I immediately contacted my best man and he said he forgot all about the HVAC rental for the tent. I couldn’t believe he would forget something so important. So I ended up calling an HVAC rental company on the spot and they were able to get the cooling systems delivered within the hour which was nothing short of a miracle. Then during the wedding reception when my best man was supposed to make his speech, he looked nervous and said he didn’t know what to say. I thought he would have prepared some kind of speech, but he clearly didn’t. He got up there and made a total fool of himself and even embarrassed me a little bit. I was glad when he finally sat down, and then I tried to get everybody back into good spirits with the music. We had a nice dinner and celebration, but I really wish I would have chosen a different best man.
