Best Man Responsibility
and Duties

Looking after the needs of the groom is a best man responsibility. He is the groom's deputy, his second in command and sworn henchman.

This is the man who lends an ear when his best friend - the groom - is overwhelmed with the planning of the wedding.

Important best man duties include carrying the expensive wedding rings to the church and paying vendors on his behalf. He frees up time for the groom to prepare himself for the wedding. He is a valuable and trusted friend.

Another important best man duty is being in charge of organising the groomsmen and delegating tasks to the wedding ushers. It is a best man responsibility to ensure everything on the wedding day runs smoothly, according to plan and on schedule.

The best man at a wedding can be any age, but must be a mature and responsible manager. He also must be is well groomed and well dressed.
