The entirely benign appearance of the Best Man Visa Gift Card belies the less than civil way in which the term Best Man came to be. It comes from the first century BC, when the Goths in what is now Germany had to go kidnap women from neighboring villages because they lacked young women in their own. The intended groom would select a close friend with the “best” fighting skills to accompany him. Later, at the wedding the best man had to be ready to help ward off any would-be rescuers. That certainly makes keeping the wedding rings from getting lost and offering a toast at the reception seem pretty tame. All the same, you really should give your best man a Best Man Visa Gift Card.
