Kim's Wedding Tips!
Word Or Two About The Best Man...
TIP #1: If you are having a buffet dinner,
the Best Man and Maid of Honor are excellent people to whom you can
delegate the duty of making sure you get fed. There are many Brides
and Grooms who leave their receptions hungry because they were too busy
talking to everyone to go to the buffet table. It is easy enough for
your attendants to bring you a plate or two of food provided you ask
them in advance so they know that you would like this done.
TIP #2: My advise is to have the groom ask the Best Man what he intends
to say at the toast. Sometimes the Best Man's toast is a wonderful and
spontaneous statement that chokes you up. Other times these men can
come out with "jokes" which would be more appropriate for a Don Rickels
If your Best Man is a trustworthy type. You can have
him bring the extra copy of your wedding song on CD to give to the DJ.
Make sure you have clearly labeled the song - I put a piece of paper
inside the front cover with something obvious like "FIRST DANCE # 8"
so that there is no confusion. Having the original CD is a good idea
because the DJ may have a different version of the same song and not
realized it. All renditions are not created equal, and a number of Brides
and Grooms have danced to versions considerably different from those
which they had selected.
5) A Wedding Tradition
THE "BEST MAN"
Many modern wedding traditions stem from the barbaric "marriage by capture"
method, popular at many points in history. Among the Germanic Goths
around 200 A.D., a man usually married a woman from within his own town
or community. However, when there were fewer women, the prospective
bridegroom would capture his bride from a neighboring village. The bridegroom
was accompanied by his strongest friend (or best friend), who helped
him capture his bride and or fight off angry relatives. In Anglo-Saxon
times, the groom had the help of "bridesmen" or "brideknights" to help
him capture and/or escort his bride, make sure that the Bride got to
the church and then to the Groom's home afterwards Even as recently
as a few hundred years ago, if a man saw a woman of whom he fancied
for his bride, he simply kidnapped her from her village. Once captured,
the bride would stand (or be held) on his left side because most men
are right handed; during the ceremony, the groom's right hand had therefore
to be free (if not already be wielding some sort of weapon) in order
to be prepared for possible attacks from his bride's family and friends.
This is the reason why the Bride often stands on the left and the groom
on the right. That we still have the groom's "protector" is an ironic
twist given that most women go quite willingly to the alter these days.
