What is a Best Man?
Although everyone knows of someone who has been a best man, does anyone actually know what a best man is? In short, the best man is the grooms right hand and his confidant throughout the whole of the wedding process and is responsible for a number of different roles and duties that must be carried out before, during and after the wedding. Anything the groom needs, he goes to the best man to help him sort or figure it out.
What Does the Best Man Do?
There are a variety of different things that the best man does throughout the engagement, wedding and post wedding.
- Get the stag night sorted
- Assist the groomsmen with suits
