Apart from his speech, the Best Man may be expected to perform other tasks. Be sure to communicate with the Bride and Groom to see exactly what you're in charge of. Many of these variable duties come before the actual wedding. You may be expected to help plan the wedding. Don't panic, you would be asked to coordinate floral arrangements or to pick out a pretty color scheme. This usually just entails the basic details of the wedding.

Your most important job, however, is to just provide a good source of moral support for the Groom. Even though weddings are supposed to be blissful and relaxed, they can be overwhelming. So sometimes you need to be a Best Friend before the Best Man. You want to provide a a good system of reinforcement for your Groom and help make his special day even better.

Generally your pre-wedding responsibilities include picking a wedding date and location of the wedding. Most of the time, this includes the input of the Bride and the Groom, as well as the Best Man and the Maid of Honor.

When trying to pick a date, be sure to pick it far enough in advance. You need to keep non-local family and friends in your plans, as they will want to have enough time to get off work and get less expensive plane tickets. Picking a location is also important. This ties very closely with the date. You want to avoid a New York wedding during the winter, to avoid forcing the Groom to wear a Parka and snowshoes. Unless the wedding is indoors, you want to keep the date and the location in mind.

The minor details of weddings can be pretty important, so when planning, try not to skim over them. If the Bride and the Groom have a specific person in mind that they would like to preside over their wedding, make sure he is contacted well enough in advance to be available.

Make sure you get to the wedding location at least an hour beforehand if you are charged with driving the Groom there. You want to avoid last minute panic and careless mistakes at all costs, and having the Groom there early eliminates much of this possibility.

You will also have more time to get ready for your best man speech. Don't forget the endless ridicule he would get from his new wife for being late to his own wedding. She'd be able to hold that over his head for the rest of his life, so don't let that happen! With all of this craziness going on, don't forget about making your best man speeches.
