You da man…you da BEST MAN! You’re probably the groom’s brother, his best friend and/or the guy that knows how to party like it’s going out of style. You’re the guy that has to lend a friendly ear to your buddy when the entire wedding planning process is stressing him out.

The groom has thought long and hard about which of his friends he’d grace with this title. It’s your prerogative to think about the title before accepting. You have a few responsibilities and some costs. The price tag that comes with being a best man is somewhere between $400.00 $$1000.00+. Your biggest expense will come with the stag.

So what do you have to do to be a good best man?


  • Plan and pay for bachelor party w/groomsmen.
  • Rent and pay for a tux, and go for fittings.
  • Attend rehearsal and rehearsal dinner.
  • Help bring and boxes to ceremony and reception location.
  • Help the groom dress and make sure he gets to the church on time.
  • Keeps the bride’s wedding ring until the ring exchange. You may be asked to hold both rings or none at all if the ring bearer has them.
  • Sign the marriage license.
  • The couple will give you a sealed envelope with the officiant’s or church’s fee in it. You will give this the priest/officiant before the ceremony.
  • Sit to the groom’s left at the reception.
  • Dances with the maid of honour.
  • Make a first toast to the bride and groom. This is usually done before dinner but in some cases right after.
  • Arranges transportation or personally drives the bride and groom to the hotel or the airport.
  • Collects and returns all formalwear rentals on time.
  • Help maid of honour bring gifts to the bride and groom’s house.
