The rules for appointing groomsmen

So for those of you who don't know, my wonderful friends Emily and Matthew recently got engaged - congratulations, my lovelies!!! Anyway, Em's asked me to be a bridesmaid. So you can no doubt expect many posts relating to wedding related dress/flower/venue/band hunting over the next nine months or so.

Anyway, at their engagement party on Saturday, Matthew came out with a pearl of wisdom that I feel needs to be shared. He told me that while he hasn't yet asked any of his friends to act as a groomsman, he's developed a theory for appointing said groomsmen. And it is as follows:

- You need one groomsman who's eloquent, and who makes a speech at the reception.
- You need one groomsman who's trustworthy and won't lose the rings.
- And finally, you need one groomsman who's kind of an arsehole, but who can organise one hell of a bachelor party.

Seems fair enough to me! I wonder if the same applies to the appointing of bridesmaids............

  1. Seeing as I know how much you (don't) love public speaking, and you're not an arsehole, I guess you're trustworthy? :-)

    As far as I'm aware, I'm not getting married. But there was a story on TV last night about wedding celebrants. We googled it, and it *usually* costs between $200-$500 for their 10 minute contribution.

    Based on that, we reckon we'd skip the formal ceremony part and just sign on in the registry office. Big party afterwards, and no worries about 'choosing' anyone.

    Problem solved... um, too bad it's not a problem I have (getting married, I mean).
