As the best man, you will have certain duties to fulfill other than looking good in a tux. If you are committed to being a great best man the groom can be proud of, here are several tips for doing just that:
Plan a Globe-Shaking Bachelor Party
The quintessential element of being a best man is planning the bachelor party. Once upon a time, this was just a dinner. But these days there’s just about anything you can do. First of all, consider what the groom wants. Ask him or think about what he has liked in the past and then plan the party. It could just be a one night event or everyone can go on a short vacation before the big day. It will be the best man’s duty to select a venue, guests, menu, and everything else.
Arrange the Adult Entertainment for Him
Bachelor parties wouldn’t be bachelor partied without some wild entertainment. Once again, it will be the best man’s duty to arrange this for the groom. Search for bucks party Perth entertainment in the local area and you will be able to find exotic dancers, semi-nude waitresses, or anything else you would like at the R-rated event. Make sure you only hire adult entertainment if the groom is all right with it. If there are explicit instructions not to do something, don’t do it.
See the Groom Through the Rehearsal

Prepare a Speech for the Toast (but Don’t Reveal It)

Therefore, the best man should be ready to help the groom get through the day. Be the driver so the groom doesn’t have to, for starters. Drive him to the areas he needs to go, the wedding venue of course, as a best man’s courtesy. And follow the above tips to make sure the groom is prepared and ready come the wedding day.
