What’s My Role?: Groomsman Edition
A good friend of yours is settling down, and has asked you to be in his wedding. Now what? Here’s the lowdown on what you will be expected to do.
Help The Best Man
The Best Man is going to be responsible for planning the bachelor party- he will probably want some help with ideas, and maybe covering costs. Be sure to speak up, especially if you don’t know each other that well. He might feel uncomfortable reaching out to you and asking.
Offer to help his parents unload the car at the rehearsal/day-of, coordinate everyone in one room before the ceremony begins, keep an eye out for the ring bearer, etc. During the planning process, make sure you’re on top of renting your formalwear, and getting any alterations you may need on time.
Start The Party
If people aren’t dancing when the music comes on, grab the bridesmaids and get on the dance floor. Encourage guests to join you.
The responsibilities vary wedding to wedding, but these are your three biggest jobs. Have fun!
