As you may recall, I am the best man for my good friend’s upcoming wedding. He is getting married on Saturday. I am taking Friday off to help him prepare and for me to ensure I have everything I need to make his wedding go smoothly. Being a best man is a lot of work and I was very naive about what the effort that goes into that role in a wedding. It has caused me a bit of stress but that’s because I don’t want to screw this up for my friend. Weddings are such interesting cultural experiences which leave very little room for error.
The wedding day approaches though. I made it through the bachelor party and now I just need to guide my friend on the big day. I need to not lose the rings and not forget the words to my speech at the reception. Beyond that, it’s just a few other small details and I should be good. I’ll report back on Sunday evening.
