Being the best man is not just being there for the groom on the wedding day. It’s there for him all the way—from the preparation ‘til the end of the ceremony.
If your best friend or brother chooses you as his best man, be thrilled! It is undoubtedly an honour. It only means that they trust you with their heart; they trust your judgments. And more importantly, they trust you that you will help them make their big day the biggest and best one yet.
Here are some duties you need to keep in mind:
Organize the bachelor’s party
Nothing screams “Goodbye, singlehood!” louder like a bachelor’s party! It is your duty to make the last few days or hours of your bro’s single life memorable. Ditch the classic strip club trips and debauchery! Make it meaningful; you can take the group to a sports event, hiking, or do a cook-off for a change!
Plan the wedding logistics
While the couple has a wedding planner to take care of all the wedding essentials, you must take the initiative to help them. You should help them find and arrange for wedding transport from Xquizit Limousines & Tours, make sure that the rest of the groomsmen are dressed up, and assist the couple in organising their honeymoon. You also have to make sure that you keep the wedding rings of the couple.
Be the witness
You will have to be at the ceremony, of course! You will be present as the witness and sign the marriage license of the couple.
Give your speech!
Of course! You will need to utter a few words that will make your bro tear up a little or move the audience! Just don’t mention your bro’s exes and the nasty mischief you guys have been into.
These are just some of the things you need to do keep in mind if you want to be a better best man. Best tip: always be there for him!
