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? A best man has a variety of different roles and duties that he has to do before, during and after the wedding. Overall the best man is the grooms right hand and his confidant throughout the whole of the wedding process. 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.

  • Firstly get the stag night sorted
  • Assist the groomsmen with suits
  • Create an epic best man speech
  • Making sure the bride is okay on the wedding is also important as the Groom will be speaking to family.
  • Stand next to the groom throughout the wedding ceremony.
  • Maybe crack a few mother in law jokes.
  • Keep the ushers in their place.
  • Be a supportive friend.
  • Sign the marriage certificates as witness.
  • And of course the most important part, be there for all the photos that will be taken.
