Leading up to the wedding day, there are several mini celebrations that take place; celebrations like the engagement party, rehearsal dinner, and sometimes if the bride and groom decide–a wedding shower! These are all special events for the bride and groom, and the wedding party is expected to go, and in some cases help plan them!
2. Purchase Wedding Attire
Each groomsman is responsible for purchasing their own formalwear for the wedding, as well as for returning it, if it’s a rental, after the wedding. Make sure you don’t wait until the last second to get your rentals because last second never goes well!
3. Plan the Bachelor Party
