LDS Groomsmen: Traditional Roles & Responsibilities

LDS groomsmen, listen up! Here are your traditional roles and responsibilities when you’ve gotten the call to stand alongside the groom.

Suit Up

Groomsmen are expected to purchase or rent all of their wedding attire. LDS weddings are generally less formal, so you may not need a tux. However, you’ll want to make sure your suit matches and that you have the correct tie, shocks, and boutonniere.

Attend the Bachelor Party

Help plan the bachelor party and attend! Your job is to make sure the groom has an uplifting, fun time. You may need to help make reservations, pitch in for the cost of group activities, or bring food. Work with the best man to see how you can be the most helpful.

Escort Guests to Seats

Traditionally, groomsmen are in charge of escorting guests to their seats for the marriage. Since LDS weddings don’t often have such structured seating at receptions, work to help guests find what they need. Pay attention to anyone wandering around and know where all the bathrooms and exits are. If there is a ring ceremony, help people be seated in a timely manner.

The Getaway Car

You get to conspire with the ladies of the wedding party to decorate the getaway car. Make sure you use car-safe decorating tools and don’t cover any important windows and mirrors. You want the bride and groom to arrive at their honeymoon in safety.

  • Sometimes, we get caught up in the frenzy of wedding planning. We love this photo from @evandrotette.fotografia because it highlights the simple, but majestic love we can experience because of Jesus Christ.

  • "One of the most beautiful, comforting doctrines of the Lord—one that brings immense peace, happiness, and unbounded joy—is that principle called eternal marriage. This doctrine means that a man and woman who love each other deeply, who have grown together through the trials, joys, sorrows, and happiness of a shared lifetime, can live beyond the veil together forever with their family who earn that blessing. That is not just an immensely satisfying dream; it is a reality." - Richard G. Scott
