In other unrelated wedding news, my high school bestie is getting married! He and his fiancée got engaged a few months ago. His fiancée is furiously planning the wedding, even though the tentative wedding date is about a year and a half away.
I was hanging out with my high school bestie and his fiancée a couple days ago, and they informed me that I’m going to be the best man! They chose me a long time ago, but they neglected/forgot to tell me until now. My high school bestie also hasn’t told the other groomsmen that they’re groomsmen!
I’m honored and flattered that my high school bestie chose me to be the best man, but I’m already nervous about giving a speech at the wedding a year and a half from now. I hate public speaking!
Also, isn’t the best man supposed to plan certain things for the wedding, like the bachelor party? I’m going to be away at graduate school for the next couple years, so I wonder how involved I can be in planning anything. I hope I can just delegate the responsibilities to someone who will be around to help.
