Man’s Best Friend: Part 2 of 2
As your nuptials commence at Ashelynn Manor (either outdoor in our beautiful white gazebo or inside our lovely vintage chapel), the best man will be a steadfast presence for the bride and groom throughout the ceremony and reception. While you are both concentrating on your vows,
the best man will hold on to the bride’s ring until the appropriate moment. He can also be a witness to sign the marriage license and can present the minister with a sealed envelope from the groom that includes payment (this is often done immediately after the ceremony).
At the reception, the best man’s key role continues—dancing with the maid of honor, giving a toast to the newlyweds and ensuring that the groom is provided food and drink during the event. Both the best man and maid of honor usually will coordinate gifts brought to the wedding to be transported to a pre-selected destination or home by the bride and groom. Additionally, he can help organize the return of all tuxedos and wedding party rentals after the big day is over and the party has finally come to a close.
Wedding parties—especially that wonderful best man—are all key parts to your nuptials at Ashelynn Manor. Consider us the same. If you need help creating timelines or deciding what Champagne to serve for the toast, we’ve got all the knowledge you need. Call us today!
