Best Man Duties

Best Man Duties

The Best Man is an important role in a wedding! It is the groom's right hand man. The one who will handle all of the duties the groom cannot take care of on his own. The best man will make sure that all the "i"s are dotted and the "t"s are crossed. With all the duties of a best man, the most important one is to have fun! We have created a list of some of the essential best man duties before and during wedding:

Pre-Wedding Day

  • Organize the bachelor party - (the best job of them all!). All of the groomsmen can help with this. Make sure the groom has a great time and that everyone gets excited for the wedding. It's a great way to bond with all of the groomsmen and make some great memories.
  • Arrange the suit fitting - All the groomsmen should match and look their best. As a best man, you need to ensure that all the groomsmen are getting the right attire and will show up on the wedding day looking just as handsome as the bridesmaids will look beautiful.
  • Set up the travel arrangements - If there are any guests coming in from out of town or out of state, you as the best man have the duty to ensure that they get there on time and with a place to stay. Start researching hotels in the area so your guests get a nice hotel at a good price.
  • Pay attention at rehearsal - The rehearsal dinner is when everyone prepares for the wedding day. Make sure everyone knows where to stay, what to say, and where to be. As the best man you have to pay close attention because there is always someone who is going to have a bunch of questions!

Wedding Day

  • Watch the groomsmen - You are to make sure that all the groomsmen are where they're supposed to be (and on time!). A wedding is supposed to be fun, but the last thing we want is the groom to be anxious because his cousin Vinny is still in his pajamas watching TV.
  • Help the groom! - It doesn't sound like a hard task, but with all of the excitement little things can easily be forgotten. The best man will be the one the groom will call on whenever he needs something. Be available for the groom at any time.
  • Watch the alcohol intake - This goes for the groom and his groomsmen. The wedding day is going to be the most joyous and fun-filled occasion of your lives and as the best man you're going to have to make sure that the groom and the groomsmen all remember it! When pictures are being taken, you do not want to have to worry about anyone from the bridal party in the background looking or getting sick.
  • Keep track of the rings - The rings need to be kept in a safe place out of harms way, and that's the job of the best man!
  • Give payments and sign papers - The best man will be in charge of making sure all the payments have been made. He must make sure there's a sealed envelope for the officiant ready to go. Along with the maid of honor, you as the best man are also responsible for signing the marriage certificate! These little tasks may not sound as exciting but they sure are important!
  • Give your speech - Your toast to the bride and groom is your chance to tell them both how much you care and how happy you are to see them spend the rest of their lives together. This can often be the most frightening part, but it's the moment that so many people look forward to.
  • Have fun! - Make sure everyone is having a good time, especially the groom. Everyone should be out on the dance floor and smiling from ear-to-ear!
