Cliche Cafe: Why Is There a ‘Best Man?’
You know there's a best man in most weddings, but why does that position exist?
These days, the bride and groom's wedding party is a group of friends and family who will stand with them at the alter and sit with them at dinner.

According to Ranker, the best man was supposed to be the 'best' man to ward away attackers during a wedding ceremony.
Forget choosing your best friend... you need your toughest buddy!
