When you get picked to be one of the groomsmen for your friend’s wedding, better not make it all about you. Better be in your best behavior so your friend would have the time of his life. The first thing to remember would be to show up on time for all the commitments for the wedding. There will be a photoshoot with the rest of the groomsmen so better show up there on time so that the photographer and the other people there would not be kept waiting. It is also not the time to flirt with the bridesmaids as they have a lot of other things on their mind when the big day finally arrives. Also, better make sure you look great in your suit. Better look in front of the mirror for several hours so you can know how you can improve yourself. You know there can be some things that you can do to make it better like combing your hair and cutting your nose hairs. Remember, you will be posing for a ton of pictures that will be treasured forever so it is important to look your very best. The bride and groom will most likely choose what you will wear. It will definitely for their best interest to avoid making any negative comments about what they’ve chosen for you. It would be best to attend the fittings so better make room in your schedule for that.
One unforgettable way to become the perfect groomsmen is to enjoy the part in the right manner. When the after-wedding festivities begin, you know you would want to get down with the other guests and socialize properly. Better not get too drunk or you may end up saying things to them that you will certainly regret. You may even collapse in the party and that won’t be good when someone takes pictures of that. It will end up being a night you would not want anyone to remember instead of the other way around. There is no excuse for behaving that way as you must remember to not drink too much alcohol. Drinking moderately for an occasion like this is the best way to do it.
There is a huge chance you will need to make a speech as a groomsman. Better prepare ahead of time so you know what you are going to say. It would not hurt to practice in front of so many people. You can write a few notes and use them as a reference. However, it would not look if you would read it word per word since someone will take a video of you. Besides, you have so many days to practice for that so better make full use of the time you have. It would not hurt to ask the opinion of the other groomsmen if your speech is alright. Better not make the speech too long since there are a lot of other people who will make speeches including the bride and groom.
