I have been asked to be the best man at one of my best friends wedding.

I have a general idea on what i am suppose to do, but i been thinking of the small things.

What does a best man do at a wedding, like how they make their appearance, and where do i stay til time? or does this diff between weddings?
as far as i know this will be a typical wedding at church, nothing diffrent really. Is there anything i will be needing to get. Do i escort the maid of honor or do i just stand by the groom? as you can probably tell i don't usually pay attention to wedding other then try to stay up for the "i do" parts.

also what is typical for the best man to do other then throw the bacherlor party(trust me got one planned out).

I figured with all of the married men and women on this board someone could help me here.

You have to give a t oas t after the wedding. Other then that, stand around, talk to people until time to escort the maid of honor down the aisle. when it is over you have to escort her back up the aisle. they will go over all this in detail at the rehearsal.

it is easy, I've been best man once and groomsman twice. nothing to it, dont sweat it.

atleast youre not the groom!!!

toast huh, knowing my luck i will say the wrong thing, i say one thing meaning another thing.

so basically give a bacherlor party and showing up and making a toast is the only thing i have to worry about? not too bad.

As best man you need to give the groom a hard time about getting married, without talking him into not getting married! Remind him of all the good times ya'll had hitting the clubs and stuff like that. Also you should flurt with all the other girls in the wedding. Someone needs to plan the gag stuff, your job is not to let that stuff get out of hand. ie. someone standing on the roof of the church with a 5# sack of bird seed is not good! Don't let people mess up the paint on the get-away car. And what ever happens don't catch the garder! Try and have fun, keep the groom happy, he will need you.

hmmm

You will have a good time! you will be responsible for keeping the ring the Groom will give to the Bride so put it where it will be easy to get to. Keep a couple of sticks of chewing gum for the groom for the last few minutes in the room where all you guys will wait so his mouth does not get dry and he sounds squeaky when he says his vows. make sure he spits the gum out right before you guys enter the room where the ceremony will be performed. Keep some Tylenol on hand and maybe some Pepto. Yeah it may sound stupid now but wait till then.

i am glad you posted that mudgod i forgot all about the tricks at the weddings!! i can't hurt his truck since i wish it was mine. but i guess i can get some oil field trash and hang them off the bumper since he is a pumper. and write stuff on the windows. i will get a buddy of mine to do it for me since it seems i will be unable to get away.

just out of curiousity what happens if i caught the garter?? so yea i have been living under a rock when it comes to wedding.

I guess they covered everything, but I had to learn it too because I was the best "man" at my male friend's wedding. I planned the bachelor party (I was the only lady there who wasn't being paid...), carried his ring, clapped my buddy on the back and told him he was making a good choice and that choices can always be made at any time (a.k.a. "you're not entering into a lifelong trap"), and wrote a one page speech for the toast which I gave, I just told silly stories about my buddy and then said some sappy stuff about him getting married. They expected more from me because I was a female best man, but it's really nothin' to worry about.
