    Be nice as well as honest. While honesty is good, delivering it in a way that is nice and caring is important, too. So, show that it isn’t about them but more about how you are doing that day and how you feel. And show compassion and eagerness to see them soon. Plus, THANK THEM. Tell them you appreciate their understanding.

    firstly thank them for inviting you to be the best man, that's a big honor then just lay it down to them and beg genuine with the reasons why you cant go. Be sure to tell them earlier tho so that they dont have trouble finding a replacement in a hurry

    yeap my friend could not attend as the best man as well, he met up with the couple right away to thank them for that and apologize of not being able to attend. It will be good to be letting the couple know as early as he could!

    Better to talk to them in person and sincerely ask for apologies why you can't attend as the best man.
