Finding And Choosing The Right Rings

Don’t be surprised if you’re dragged ring shopping long before the actual wedding. Yes, if you’re chosen as best man early enough, you may well be brought into the decision of buying an engagement ring. Remember, the engagement ring is the first important choice of the wedding. It’s what determines whether or not there’s even a wedding for you to be a best man at. When picking the ring, make sure the future groom looks at unique engagement rings. Anything that stands out in the right way is worth considering.

The Bachelor Party

One of the best parts of being a best man is that you get to plan the bachelor party. You get to decide what you do, when to have it and how to get the groom there. It’s up to you to make it a surprise, have a quiet evening or throw a wild party. Already, we bet you’ve got some ideas about what you could arrange. But be careful because you don’t want to put the groom in any awkward positions. For instance, he might have told you that he and his partner agreed no strippers before the wedding. You shouldn’t arrange one anyway.

The Best Man Speech

The least fun part of being the best man? That’s got to be writing the best man speech. Best men always have difficulty getting the speech right. It’s got to be funny but not embarrassing. It should remember the past but not forget to look towards the future. Most importantly of all, it should be heartfelt. If you’re struggling to right, the speech think about what makes them a good couple. That should set you off on the right track.

Cold Feet
