A popular choice for many, after all, the old school friend represents a care-free, fun version of you. Sure to offer a thorough and insightful speech, the school friend may be a risky choice, and don't forget, you may be a very different person than you were when you were 16.
The New Friend
The new "BFF"; it might be hilarious Dave from marketing or "Crazy Dave" who you play 5-a-side with on a Tuesday. The new friend is a popular choice for those who've moved away from their childhood town, as well as those with a few skeletons in their closet that they don't want slipping out in the speech! But it spoils the fun for everyone else if their are no old stories, and the pressures of such an important job can put strain on a new friendship.
This option obviously depends on your relationship with your brother, but is good choice for those wanting a loyal best man and a relatively uncontroversial speech. It's a way to eliminate the task of choosing between friends but then again, not everyone has a brother, especially not one up to the task!
For when no compromises are acceptable, the professional best man is the last option. No need to worry about "that time behind Subway" making its way into the speech or your best man being anything other than charming to your new bride's mother. Hiring the professional allows all of your friends and family to be free to enjoy the day without the stress of the big job.
