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!

Top 5 Wedding Surprises

The traditional wedding goes a little bit like this...first off you’ll have the wedding ceremony with your family and friends. Then the bride and groom and their bridal party will head away to get some pictures taken. Meanwhile the guests head to the reception area and await the arrival of the newlyweds. Then the speeches and the meal come along. Finally, they're followed by the First Dance and after that the party really starts! Sometimes the order may be different, but that’s the main gist of how the traditional wedding goes. It’s all pretty routine. So here are our Top 5 Wedding Surprises!    Every now and then, people like to surprise their guests by throwing a spanner into the works and they do something that adds a modern twist that slightly breaks away from the tradition. We’ve come up with 5 of the best wedding surprises to really make your wedding stand out among the rest and leave a lasting memory in your own minds as well as your guests’.     1. Perform a Dance with the Groomsmen If you want to really surprise your wife and guests and you’re usually the quiet type, then this idea is perfect for you! You and your Groomsmen must book a few dancing lessons from a choreographer in the build-up to the wedding, learn a dance routine and perform it on the wedding night...preferably after the First Dance! It’ll get the whole room into the dancing mood and if you are usually the quiet type then it’ll show people your fun side too.   2. Have a Funny First Dance Similar to the previous idea, this one requires you to learn a dance routine with your wife to be. Instead of the traditional First Dance that’s normally a slow dance done to a slow song, you could change it up and surprise your guests by choosing a more upbeat song that’ll require your finest dancing shoes.   3. Write and/or Sing a Song If you’re the musical type then everyone will know it. But if you’ve kept it a bit of a secret or if it's just never came up, then maybe this is your chance to really surprise people and blow them out of the water by showing them what you can do. Your wife will love it, especially if she doesn’t expect it. Your guests might even join in and sing along with you.   4. Organise a Photobooth This one is the perfect surprise to plan for when you, the bride, and the bridal party are off getting your wedding photos done. Organise a photobooth to be there and ready to go while you’re away. That way, your guests can get their own little photo shoot done. It’s a great way to pass the time while the guests wait around for the bridal party to get back.   5. Order a Caricature Artist This one is also a perfect filler for when the bridal party is away taking their photos. Bring in a caricature artist to let the guests have their pictures reimagined in a really exaggerated style. It’s a great way to get the laughs going and to set the mood for the night ahead.     Whether it’s performing a dance with your wife or groomsmen, or organising a photobooth for your guests, we think these are some great ideas to include as surprises on your wedding day. Include one in your wedding. You’ll be guaranteeing your guests will have a great surprise. And it’ll be something they won’t forget anytime soon.       So lads, don’t forget to check out our website and also follow us on Facebook if you’re looking for more information for your Stag Party.
