Besides looking sharp and handsome, groomsmen play an integral role in making a wedding successful. They are supposed to give the groom-to-be the necessary moral and material support in days leading up to the wedding and on the actual wedding day. If it’s the first time you are serving as a groomsman, you are likely to find it frustrating, especially if you have no idea what’s expected of you.
Here is a simple code of wedding etiquette for groomsmen to guide you.
Be Involved In Planning the Wedding
The main reason why the groom chose you to be his groomsman is because he needs you to stand by him in this crucial moment of his life. You therefore have to give a hand whenever you can, and make him understand that he can count on you.
In most instances, the best man is responsible for planning the bachelor party. But since you will partake in the festivities, try lending a hand where possible. Note: Don’t drown yourself with alcohol on the eve of the wedding. You might end up throwing up at your friend’s wedding.
It’s an honor to serve as a groomsman. Therefore it is one occasion you have to look your best. Let whatever you wear be the best fit. Get a perfect haircut and use the right makeup if you have to.
Don’t spoil your buddy’s big day by running late. Ensure you arrive 10-15 minutes to the kick-off so you have enough time to prepare and allow the program to run as planned.
