H3lp, I was asked to be 'the best man', this is a first for me :D

'elo dear FAmily!

 

I'm in trouble, help  :blink:

 

My brother-in-law has asked me to be his 'best man' / 'groomsman' / 'witness' for his wedding (May 2016).

 

I have never been in this role and for a bad luck streak, I don't know him too well. He has very few friends, is also rather hobby-less and I'm kinda the one that knows him best...

I have accepted that challenge, you know me, objectives are fun ^^. 

 

Where I come from, it's the groomsman's duty to:

- organize a wedding-eve-party (imagine the movie Hangover) and to

- execute and help on wedding day.

 

To boot, I have invited him + his wife-to-be and asked them the basics, like what he definitely does not want to experience, or explicit wishes. 

He also gave me numbers of 4 other guys, which he would probably want to enjoy the night.

I don't yet fear wedding day, it will be a mess, but so is every family day :D I'm rather uncertain about the party night's locationg and program.

 

Have you ever been to fantastic wedding-eve-parties, or have you organized such nights before? If you're married, what did you enjoy  / dislike about that special night?

In the end I'll taylor something to his likings, at least I hope that, but I could really use some inspiration and fun stories to get my creativity goin' =)

 

From his wishlist / blacklist:

- no stripper (yeah, I know...)

- no fancy french dining (a-hum..)

- booze is fine, as are most other soft conciousness-enhancing substances 

 

v25 - Cover me!

In the USA and elsewhere, it is call the "Bachelor's Party" for the man and "Bachelorette's Party" for the woman.

 

DO NOT use the movies with those words in their titles as a guide!   :)

 

A good Best Man should protect the groom from those who want to get him smashed the night before his wedding.  I suggest that you stock up on some knock-out drugs to slip to the Pushers so that they poop-out early and can't keep egging the Groom along until he is falling-down-stairs-drunk.  That means that you cannot get too high yourself, lest you dope the groom by mistake!  (or yourself)
