Wedding Party: Roles and Duties of the Best Man at a Wedding

The Wedding Guru settles a lover’s quarrel regarding the roles of the best man at the wedding

(page 1 of 2)

It’s an honor to be chosen as the best man at a wedding — but the role demands a bit more than guarding a ring! Here, I clear up a lover’s quarrel regarding some of the best man’s duties.

Dear Wedding Guru: “My future husband and I disagree about his best man’s role. (He thinks his buddy should just show up and hold the ring during the ceremony and, of course, throw the bachelor party.) I believe that there’s a lot more to it. Can you help me explain what the best man’s duties are?”
