One of the more difficult parts of wedding planning is choosing the right people to be the groomsmen and bridesmaids. Bridesmaids, by tradition, should support the bride, while the groomsmen are there to help the bride with the wedding arrangements. Wedding tips for groomsmen, in general, will focus on what you can do to make their experience more enjoyable. A common mistake for groomsmen is to try to get the bride something special or exclusive for them, which could end up ruining the reception. The following tips will help you keep your groomsmen happy.
Most groomsmen end up taking a cut of the bride’s wedding cake, or other similar dessert. This can be a real downer for the groom since he has put so much time and effort into the wedding ceremony. If you are planning to get the groom a piece of cake or other dessert of his choice, this can be an easy way to show your appreciation for him. It won’t cost you too much, so feel free to give the groom a small portion of your cake. It’s a nice gesture, and it will show your gratitude for having him with you on your special day.
Another thing that most grooms tend to forget during a wedding is to bring their best man along for the reception. While the bride’s maids will generally just sit at home enjoying themselves, the groom needs to make sure he can take part in the fun. Even if you can’t afford to hire someone to sit with the groom, it’s always nice to have a friend there to talk to. Your friend will also likely want to help the groom out as well, so you’ll be able to share the limo ride and other important details with her before the wedding.
