Groomsmen Duties and
Today, the groomsmen duties tend to be a little less dangerous and are generally restricted to helping the best man organise the stag party and ensuring the groom isn't inebriated and handcuffed to any outbound train. As a rough groomsmen guide - be prepared for photo-opportunites and try to help the groom and best man on the wedding day.
The groomsmen and ushers are usually relatives or close friends of the groom or bridal party. The number of wedding groomsmen depends on the size and cost of the wedding. Traditionally, in Christian ceremonies, the bride's family and guests sit on the left and the groom's on the right. In Jewish services, the seating is opposite.
