Lads Bible: How to be the BEST best man ever

A quick run-through of a few duties that will ensure you are the most epic best man in history.

Organize An Incredible Stag

The stag should be both a fun and memorable send-off for the groom. Especially with the range of destinations now available to British lads both locally and abroad. A good bender in The Dam is a sure-fire way to earn your stripes as the BEST best man ever. Not only is it plenty cheap, but there’s lots to do. Whether you’re thinking of heading off on a canal cruise or heading to one of the local pubs for a cold-one, the list of things to do is endless.

Handle Last Minute Emergencies With Care

Ferrying suits, sorting cuff-link emergencies and organizing grooming adjustments like a boss are all part of the best man protocol. The best man ensures a stress-free and smooth-sailing ceremony for the groom himself. So try not to drink too much to ensure you stay on top of the game.

Wedding Day Prep With The Groom

You will be the groom’s official port of call for moral support on the morning itself. That means doing the coffee run, offering some wise words of wisdom and ensuring all the other boys toe the line. Not forgetting the most important detail – watching the rings like a hawk.

Head Of Wedding Meet And Greets

The best man should be at the church or civil ceremony to greet guests, taking pressure off the groom and allowing him to concentrate on his impending vows. No doubt your best mate will be sweating buckets and will need you on hand to quash any nerves with a terrible joke.

Mark The Day With An incredible Best Mans Speech

The highlight of the wedding reception. The Best Man’s speech often includes tales of the duo’s special bond. If you’re not brimming with confidence about speaking in front of a room full of people, quite stressing and just do you. If you’re afraid your jokes will fall flat, simply avoid them and go with heartfelt memories and anecdotes about you and your best mate. Honesty and sincerity will never fail to impress.
