Best Man

Keep your best man on hand, in months leading up to your big day and on the actual day of your wedding, your Best Man is crucial. Keep him close and know all of his moevements.

We’re sure your Best Man will have tissues on hand, but keep a set tucked away in your suit jacket just in case.
