What are the duties of a groomsmen, precisely before the wedding day? Featured here are the list of the accountabilities and tasks leading up the wedding

Groomsmen Tasks Prior to the Wedding Day

1. Assisting with choosing the ring Prior to the lovely couple tying the knot, the girlfriend needs to be asked for her hand in marriage. Before the question can be popped, the moment requires that an amazing ring needs to be located and purchased. In some instances, the wedding proposer’s buddy and future groomsmen may be recruited by him to assist with shopping for the all-important engagement ring. If it turns out that you do not know squat about engagement rings, take the time before your shopping excursion and do engagement ring research so you will be able to provide your pal with informed guidance and a knowledgeable opinion. 2. Wedding suit or tuxedo rent or purchase Groomsmen are responsible for buying and tailoring their wedding suit or tuxedo. Begin the steps of renting or buying your wedding attire early on so you have the task completed way before your buddy, the groom’s big day. 3. Help with the bachelor party game plan Planning the bachelor party normally is the responsibility of the best man. However, it does not preclude the other groomsmen from pitching in and helping game plan the party or weekend. By putting your heads together and teaming up to create a great game plan, you will discover that you have locked in all the important details and you will end up having the best time together ever. If you are not able to assist with the game plan, make up for it by putting up some of the cash to pay for some of the activities.

4. Take part in all the pre-wedding activities including the following: the engagement party; the bachelor party; and rehearsal dinner Groomsmen traditionally take part in all the pre-wedding events except the bridal shower. Several of the activities may not be as fun as the other ones, but as a good pal and a stellar groomsmen it shows good spirit and support for the couple to take part in everything from choosing the ring to the big day when they go from being engaged to being married.

5. Buy a great wedding gift You may be busy with life prior to the impending wedding ceremony, so buying an awesome wedding gift my be forgotten. It is traditional and a custom for the wedding party members to give a gift to the couple. If you do not know what to buy them (newlyweds get too many crockpots and toasters), visit their wedding registry and see what suggested gifts are on their list. If the couple does not have a gift registry set up, look at teaming up together with the wedding party or all the groomsmen and paying for a fun event like a big concert or fun activity as cool gift the couple will enjoy.

6. Make your travel and hotel bookings early Part of your groomsman responsibility is to book both your hotel room and flight. Many couples will set up a room block for the entire wedding party at a hotel nearby to the wedding reception venue. Be certain to book both your flight and room reservation once you know the wedding date so you are set to go and do not end up not being able to book the flight you need because all the seats are already taken. This comes into play more so for weddings set at a destination. Booking early means you will be there on time for everything. By booking your flight early you will get the best price possible. It is better to be early to the wedding destination than arrive at the last minute. You do not want to stress out the couple or put them in a pinch by not showing up on time. 7. Deck out the getaway car The groomsmen and bridesmaid are responsible for decking out the newlywed’s getaway car before they drive off to wedded bliss. Many couples these days may jump in a rideshare or are not keen on having their car full of decorations. However, if it is okay to deck out their car, do it big so the car looks fun and fantastic.

Being a groomsman is an important, fun part of being a good friend. Enjoy it and do everything within your power to help your friends have the best wedding possible.
