In most African weddings, the maid of honor and the bride worry about the wedding plans. The groom mostly listens to the bride rant and calms the in-laws. What does the best man do though? The obvious that comes to mind is planning the bachelors’ party. Well, that, and these others;
Ensure that the wedding venue has ample parking lot. Same way women are poor at parking, they may forget this part. Or be poor judges of the parking lot. In addition, it is wise to have emergency number for taxi companies. You never know what will happen and you will need an extra car.
Check the groom has all the necessary documents
Ensure the groom has taken care of all the necessary documents. Check with the honeymoon reservations, passport and plane tickets for the honeymoon. The groom may not be thinking straight during these stressful times, be in control of his needs.
You are the holder of these bands that will join the couple forever. So, don’t go bawling on the bachelors party and lose the rings.
You will be the main witness of the forthcoming union. On the wedding day, make sure the groom dresses up well, so be there early enough. Make sure he gets to the church in time.
The best man is the best friend to the groom, so the best he can do is being there for the groom. Best friends always know how to deal with crisis, don’t they?
