Alright grooms, step aside — this one’s for the Best Man.
The day of the wedding is a big day for your bestie, so make sure something small doesn’t fuck it all up. He’ll thank you for life if you take all the right measures and plan it out properly. Trust me, I’ve been in a lot of weddings and you’d be amazed the things people forget. Can you imagine forgetting socks? SOCKS! Yes, I’ve had to send a groomsman to Target for socks. And you know what? They still talk about it.
Below is a list of eight things you should be sure you bring for your groom:

Know how to tie a tie and bowtie: Be a goddamn adult already! Know how to tie a tie and a bowtie. Any guys wearing a pocket square? We got you covered on that one.

Handkerchief: For all the, ahem, allergies. Tissues are fine, but a handkerchief is baller as fuck.
FOOD: Make sure he eats! Cater something, bring granola bars, whatever.
Mints: I mean, duh.
Dopp Kit: This has all your grooming basics, like shaving items, face wash, a comb, etc. It’s always good to have an extra set of toiletries — someone’s bound to forget something. I really like this one from Ernest Alexander.
The ring: FOR GOD-FUCKING-SAKE don’t forget the ring.
Also, if the groom is a drinker, try to keep him from drinking a shit-ton the night before. If he is, you should just bring some Gatorade and a giant jug of water. Just sayin’.
