The wedding preparation duties of the best man include helping the groom to choose his wardrobe for the ceremony and if morning dress is to be hired the best man will undertake the return of the groom's outfit as well as his own while the groom is away on honeymoon. On the day of the wedding the best man is expected to accompany the bridegroom on his way to the church, having first helped him / her to dress. The best man will offer to take personal charge of any documents which may be wanted as well as the wedding ring and a sufficient sum of money to cover fees, tips and other expenses which may need to be settled on the spot-in cash.

The bridegroom and best man should reach the church at least a quarter of an hour before the time fixed for the wedding and wait in the vestry until just before the bride is due to arrive, when they go into the church and seat themselves in the front pew on the right of the gangway until she appears. They should then take their places for the ceremony, the best man at the right hand of the bridegroom and a little to the rear. If the wedding is a formally-dressed one, the best man will take care of the groom's hat and gloves putting them with his own in some safe place where they can quickly be reached again after the service. When the service is concluded, the best man should give his left arm to the chief bridesmaid as they follow the bridal couple to the vestry to sign the register.

It is usual for the best man to act as one of the witnesses to the signatures. He then hands the bridegroom his hat and gloves and follows with the chief bridesmaid down the gangway to the church porch.
