Whatever your connection to the groom, you’re a groomsman because the connection runs deep.
And as a groomsman, your responsibilities also run deep. (Nothing to fear, it’s all good.) Above all is your support of the groom. Advise him, help him stay calm, organized, and focused. Be a good listener and a shoulder to lean on. Usher guests to their seats – a good rule of thumb is age, before beauty. Be an active and willing dance partner during the wedding reception.
More than anything a groomsman is at the heart of it all because he does what friends do for friends.
A successful wedding is made of hundreds and thousands of moving parts, all working perfectly together at just the right time. That’s why, at Cescaphe, there is no such thing as a small detail.Learn More
