If the groom wants, the best man can also do the confirmation for the honeymoon reservations.Then, of course, there is the rehearsal. It is one of the best man duties to be attentive during the rehearsal. Some part of the entourage might not remember their places on the day of the event, so it would be nice if the best man can help them find their designated positions to prevent disarray on the wedding itself.There will also be rehearsal dinner where the best man should organize who will make the toasts. Usually, if the parents of the groom paid for the rehearsal dinner, the first toast is made by the father of the groom. Though there are circumstances that the father does not give a speech, it is one of the best man duties to do the first toast. But if the father does, the best man will present the second toast. During the WeddingThe wedding process before the wedding is just as important as the wedding day itself. Perhaps, it may feel more jittery for the best man too since he is playing a significant role.Photo by SC Weddings and EventsAt home or in hotels where the couple and the entire entourage stay, one of the best man duties is to help the groom wear his tuxedo. Oversee if everything is neat and clean and help smooth out creases. The best man is also accountable for making sure that there are envelopes of payment prepared for the wedding officiants. The best man also has to stow the wedding rings safely and ensures that the groom has the marriage license with him. Then, of course, the best man must get the groom to the wedding ceremony—on time; safe and sound.Before the ceremony, the best man should do the headcount, especially of the groomsmen. Check if they are dressed accordingly and ready to usher guests (if they are assigned to that). The best man should also make the ring bearer comfortable and confirm if the kid knows everything he has to do. Most importantly, the best man should stand on the groom’s side as he waits for the love of his life. (Cue for the best man to cry. It is okay, man!)Weddings are a worthwhile journey because every step towards the road to forever counts. Best man duties are just one of that extension help that you can ask your friends and family.
