Groomsmen Duties: The Full List of Responsibilities

Chris Easter Groomsmen Duties: The Full List of Responsibilities

You’ve been asked to be a groomsman. Congrats! It’s a major honor. Your mission is to support and assist the groom as he prepares for the wedding. There are a series of groomsmen duties you’ll be responsible for before, during and after the big day. We’ve compiled these tasks into a handy checklist to help you master your role.  Study this list, get comfortable with the jobs you’re responsible for – and you’ll be well on your way to winning the MVG Award (Most Valuable Groomsman)!

Pre-Wedding Groomsmen Duties

  • Offer to help the best man plan the bachelor party.
  • Attend any engagement parties or couple’s showers thrown for the engaged couple.
  • Get fitted for and pick up your tux or suit one or two days before the wedding day.

Wedding Weekend Groomsmen Duties

  • Attend the rehearsal and rehearsal dinner to receive detailed instructions about your duties for the following day.
  • Receive instructions for photos that will be taken at the wedding. More importantly, the ones that you will be in.
  • Meet your fellow members of the wedding party if you haven’t already.

Groomsmen Duties on the Wedding Day

  • If all of the groomsmen are getting dressed at a central location, make sure to arrive there on time.
  • Smile for all of the photos.
  • Make sure that the groom is relaxed and has had something to eat.
  • If ushers aren’t being used, escort wedding guests to their seats as they arrive.
  • Either escort a bridesmaid down the aisle or walk out with the groom (depending on which method the couple has chosen).
  • Be introduced at the reception – and soak up the limelight!
  • Dance with your bridesmaid partner if a wedding party dance is on tap.
  • Help carry gifts to the car afterward.
  • Help the bride’s family clean up after the reception is over.
