Why are the Roles of the Groomsmen important?

The groomsmen have some pretty important roles both in the lead up to the wedding and on the wedding day. You’ve been chosen to be a close part of the Bride and Groom’s big day so a handful of duties come along with that honour and we’ve got a list of the most important roles that you’ll need to accomplish. Use this piece as a guide on how to be the best groomsman you can be. With our help you’ll do just fine!

So let’s get straight into the list and let’s get you ready to live up to the task.


The Roles of the Groomsmen:

Attend the suit fittings

There will be a few suit fittings in the months coming up to the wedding and it would be helpful to everyone if you turned up when needed.


Be a part of the stag party planning

Normally the Best Man organises the stag party but that doesn’t mean he can’t have help. Offer some ideas on stuff to do, places to go or ways for everyone to get to the destination.


Attend all the pre-wedding events

Including the suit fittings, wedding rehearsals and more, turning up to a number of different events is part of the role of being a groomsman.


Get ready with the groom

Another part of the role of being a groomsman is for the groom and his groomsmen to all get ready at the same place on the morning of the wedding. Whether you stay there the night before or not, what matters is that he’s got you all by his side on the day.


Make sure the groom arrives on time

A groom is never late…he arrives precisely when he means to! We’re not sure that line would hold up with the bride. That means that it’s your job to make sure the groom isn’t late for his wedding (at least 30 minutes before the wedding ceremony begins).


Decorate the wedding car

Enlist the help of the bridesmaids and use the added brainpower to decorate the wedding car in a way that would make both the bride and groom happy.


Round the guests up for photos

The photographer will need some help to get everyone organised for the group photos, bridal party photos, etc. That’s where you come in.


Roles of the Groomsmen – Bonus tip:

A bonus tip to ensure you do the best you can is to help out in any way possible. The bride might need help decorating. Some furniture may need to be moved around. Whatever comes up, make sure you offer a helping hand.



The roles of the groomsmen are pretty straightforward and it can be a lot of fun living up to the honour. The most important thing to remember is to enjoy the experience! You’ll do great if you follow these simple tips.
