Choosing the right best man is vital! This guy has the power to make or break both your stag weekend and the wedding, so getting it right is even more important than United finding the right successor for Fergie. They picked David Moyes when they probably would have been better with David Walliams… Don’t let that happen to you!
The Stag Planner
Your best man’s chief role will be organising what should prove to be the biggest weekend of your life! Get the right man with a plan and you’ll be enjoying sun, sea and cervezas with some epic daytime activities and amazing nightlife. However if you pick someone with the organisational skills of the Sepp Blatter and you’ll all be stuck in his aunt’s caravan in Skegness while he’s wearing an expensive looking new watch.
The Wedding Wingman
He’ll also be the man standing beside you at what will be the biggest event you’ll ever attend. He’ll also get free reign to rip you apart in front of all your nearest and dearest during his Best Man Speech. While you do get a chance to fire off some early shots during your Groom’s Speech, he will ultimately have the last laugh.
But just how do you find the best man for the job?
We’ve created a truly scientific Best Man Test based on psyche, physical fitness, sporting prowess, tolerance to alcohol, creativity and how to cope under fire.
StagWeb proudly presents…
Find a field, set up your own beer tent (vital to ensure all the athletes are kept hydrated), light a BBQ ready for the victory feast… And let the games begin!
Scoring – Set up a scoreboard and mark each of the potential best men’s names. After each event score the stags on a downward grade; if you have 10 guys then the winner of each event will score 10, the runner up 9, third place 8, etc.
At the end of the event count up each man’s score and perhaps award the winner a trophy. You now have your best man, unless his joke was too funny in which case just pick someone else instead.
