  1. The first and foremost duty that the Best Man will be asked to do is to plan a Bachelor Party for the groom as well as the other groomsmen.
  2. The Best Man will be expected to attend the rehearsal, which is usually held the day before the wedding. Immediately following the rehearsal, there will be a rehearsal dinner and you will be expected to attend that as well.
  3. On the day of the wedding, the Best Man will be expected to escort and drive the groom to each destination unless a limo is hired. The bride will usually tell the Best Man where he needs to drive the groom.
