Go out for a good breakfast. In days gone by, groomsmen were there to decorate the wedding cars, but these days it’s more about hanging out together. So go out for breakfast, do some relaxing together, and spend the morning getting yourselves ready.
Treat your opposing bridesmaid like a lady. If you’re walking with her down the aisle let her enjoy the spotlight and play second fiddle. Lead her to her spot in the ceremony. When it comes time to dance later on, then be the one to grab her hand and lead her into the centre.
Save the roast for Christmas Dinner. As George Jessel said, “the human brain starts working the moment you are born and never stops until you stand up to speak in public.”
So in short, preparation is key. Writing and practice your speech so much that you don’t even need your brain to pull it off. The more you rehearse, the more natural you’ll seem. And also, it’s not a 21st, so keep things short, sweet and to the point. No one ever complains about a speech being too short.
Wait on people throughout the night. When you’re going up to get a drink, ask the bridesmaids, or the guests on your table. For all intents and purposes you’re the host, so make sure everyone is focused on enjoying the party.
