As Best Man, you may think you're just a glorified groomsman, but guess what? You actually have duties!

You'll be a combination valet and hand-holder as you assist the groom come through this nerve-wracking experience with flying colors. As the leader of the groom's posse, you will:
  • Serve as the groom's personal aide and adviser before and during the wedding. This can include helping him pack for the honeymoon (the valet part).
  • Help the groom choose and rent (or buy) wedding formalwear, and coordinate the other groomsmen's rentals. Make sure you match! You may be expected to arrange accommodations for out-of-town groomsmen.
  • Organize the bachelor party. Don't be shy about enlisting other groomsmen to help you out. Most guys won't mind this duty! Put financial worries out of your mind. The cost should be split among everyone who attends the bash.
  • Attend the rehearsal dinner with the bride and groom and all the other attendants. This is your chance to figure out how you're supposed to walk down that aisle.
  • Stand beside the groom at the altar and hold the rings until it's time for the ring ceremony.  Make sure your pockets don't have holes and keep the rings safe!
  • Corral the other groomsmen and make sure they're performing their groomsmen duties.
  • Sign the marriage license as a witness after the ceremony, along with the maid of honor.
  • Give the officiant a sealed envelope with his or her fee (the groom's responsibility) just after the ceremony.
  • You may be announced with the maid of honor when the reception begins.
  • Dance with both the honor attendant and the bride during the newlyweds' first dance.
  • Give the first toast to the bride and groom at the reception. This is your biggest and probably most frightening duty. Read our article about wedding toasts, and remember the cardinal rule: Mum's the word on the bachelor party.
  • Collect any gift envelopes guests bring to the reception. You may be asked to deposit them in the couple's bank account or at least to keep them until the couple returns from their honeymoon.
  • Decorate the getaway car. Grab the other groomsmen and the bridesmaids for this one.
  • Drive the couple to the wedding night hotel or airport after the reception. If you perform this service, you'll need to stay sober throughout the reception. If you have a feeling this may not be possible, hire a limo to drive the couple into the sunset.
