Being a best man is no easy task. As much as you are greatly proud of yourself, with it comes great responsibility. You have many activities to take care of; before, during and after the wedding. You might feel a bit stressed once it dawns on you the commitment you’ve taken up and the activities you have to perform to ensure the ceremonies go smoothly. So here are some of the ways to become a good best man.
Organize the bachelor party
This can be the event that the groom is most interested in. After all the cake tasting, deciding on flower décor and fitting on tuxedos, he must be exhausted with the wedding arrangements and hence is looking forward to relax and enjoy spending time with his buddies. So, you need to pick an activity that everyone can enjoy, especially the groom since it’s all about him. You don’t have to drive up to Vegas for nightclubs, strippers and drinks. You can arrange another activity such as camping, road trips, hunting, fishing at best fishing spots etc. Trying something extreme such as skydiving, bungee jumping, cave diving etc. are also fun as long as you guys will be safe. Pick a date that is not too close to the wedding and hold the party on a weekend so everyone can join. Make sure you have a proper budget in hand and make a guest list well in advance. You can ask the other guests to contribute for the party.
Prepare for the wedding
After the bucks party ideas Brisbane come the serious part; the wedding arrangements. Usually, if you are a part of the bridal party, your clothes will be provided. However if you are not, you will have to arrange for a tuxedo or any suit that matches the occasion. Attend the wedding rehearsal so you know exactly how the ceremony will be held. Ask for the agenda from the wedding planner so you know when each activity is going on. You might need to run around on the wedding day to make sure everything is in place so be ready for it. also, prepare your speech and practice so that it goes smoothly.
Fulfill wedding duties
Ensure you have all the necessary items with such as the rings and a portable sewing kit for any emergency malfunctions. The groom is surely in a lot of pressure so keep him calm and away from alcohol and cigarettes. Ask the groom if there’s anything to be done. Maybe he left his coat back in the car or the photographer needs to be paid. Be available to render any help. Decorate the wedding vehicle elegantly. Give your toast and enjoy the rest of the evening.
