Top tips for the Best Man

Have you been appointed as the Best Man? You must feel truly honored to play such an important role in your friend’s wedding. Yet, what are your duties, more exactly – and how do you make sure you do everything the right way?

We have some tips for you – so read on if you want to be the most amazing Best Man ever.

You will have to coordinate all the groomsmen in the different activities preceding the Big Day. For instance, you will be the one to make sure they buy or rent their tuxedoes, as well as have them altered for their bodies.
Furthermore, you have the important task of planning the Bachelor Party too. Do make sure you organize something the groom will really enjoy – and no, this doesn’t have to involve wild drinking and partying, especially if the groom is not into this kind of fun.
During the ceremony, the Best Man walks down the aisle with the Maid of Honor. Also, he holds the bride’s wedding ring until the groom places it on her finger.
At the wedding reception, the Best man is expected to be an entertainer, to dance with the Maid of Honor, and to offer a speech for the bride and groom. If you are anxious over the wedding toast, remember to stay away from the open-bar – alcohol and public speaking can very, very easily grow into an almost “explosive” disaster.
Last, but not least, the Best Man and the groomsmen will be the ones to decorate the getaway vehicle too. Let your imagination roam free with this, your friend will love it!
