An Essential Best Man Pre-Wedding Checklist

If you have been blessed with the duty of best man for somebody’s wedding, then you are probably dreading the tasks ahead of you. Most best men get so caught up in panicking about the big day that they forget some of the other important duties they have to undertake in between. From planning parties in advance to making sure everything runs smoothly on the day, there’s plenty to be getting on with – read our essential checklist for more.

Stag Party

Of course, this is one of your most important duties as best man at a wedding; it is your job to ensure that the stag has a last night of freedom to remember. Think carefully about locations, activities, food and drink. You could actually make an entire weekend out of it if you wanted to. It’s popular for stag parties to include daytime activities (such as paintballing or off-road driving) as well as a night out partying – it’s your job to make sure everyone important turns up, and everyone has a good time!

Suit Fittings & Hire

If the bride and groom are going to be hiring the attire rather than buying it, then it is going to be your job to make sure that the groom and any other best men have a suit fitting with the company that they are hiring from. Here at Fogarty Formal Hire, we have suits of all kinds, so there is bound to be something that will please the groom, as well as the bride. We also stock suits and dresses for groomsmen, bridesmaids, ushers and the maid of honour.

Prepare Your Speech

A lot of best men make the mistake of thinking that their speech needs to be full of dirty jokes and funny anecdotes about the groom. Some best men even go as far as to talk about the groom’s exes. While it can be funny, you’ve got to remember weddings are family affairs – so be creative, ensure the embarrassing stories are in moderation.. It can be a good idea to include some funny stories, but nothing that is going to embarrass anyone or annoy the bride or groom. Take a lot of time and consideration over your speech if you want to get it right.

As you can see, being a best man is not something that you should take lightly, because it can be a huge responsibility. If you would like to make sure that you get the suits right, then contact us at Fogarty Formal Hire to see how we can help.
