Attention to Detail


  • In July 2016, my partner and I were very fortunate to have the support of 2nd Best Man for the organization and execution of our Toronto-based wedding. All weddings can be incredibly stressful events! It is easy to underestimate how much work goes into planning a wedding (small or large). There are common stresses that underlie all weddings (e.g. keeping with schedules, ensuring someone is available to receive the cake), but there are also challenges specific to the wedding at hand. 2nd Best Man was well equipped to deal with both common and specific factors specific to our union. ...read more...Claudia M.

Second Best Man Harley Rose is more than just your wedding day coordinator, he is your go to guy for anything you will need in the weeks leading up to and on your big day. Harley found his passion for this type of work when he was asked to be Best Man to his best friend, Kyhan Smith. “I wanted the wedding for two of my dearest friends to be as stress free as possible.” 2nd Best Man is dedicated to making your wedding day stress free for you, your close friends and family.

2nd Best Man is different from other wedding day coordinators because of Harley’s years in the service, music and concert industries . Switching from services such as best man and maid of honour support, liaising with vendors and setting up decorations to filling in as last minute emcee are no problem for this jack of all trades. Over the past 5 years, Harley has been entrusted with various tasks at weddings from Vancouver, Langley, Toronto and Agassiz, BC. “One of my most favorite things I could do as Geri and Senay’s wedding day consiglierie was get them food while they were waiting in a small room, hidden from everyone before they made their grand entrance. They were starving! I felt it was the least I could do.” As a Vancouver-based musician, doorman and party planner in a past life, he has much experience to offer and prides himself in ensuring you have the best day ever.

Why Harley

Harley is dedicated to making sure your wedding day is stress free. He has known for a long time that his purpose in life is to help others. During his best friend’s wedding, he realized that there was a need for someone to be a problem-solver in a pinch….such as bringing the bride and groom a snack when they get hungry, tying a bow tie, or coordinating family and friends for pictures. Your wedding day is a day for you to spend with your friends and family, not worrying about logistics and fine details. Let Harley handle the heavy lifting. He is that guy! He is your wedding day consigliere.



Harley’s specialization on groom-centered needs came about during his Best Man duties. He found that most of the wedding services offered were focused on the bride and very rarely on the groom. He also is a firm believer in self development which led to the idea of encouraging men to step their games up by offering workshops on financial literacy, grooming, mens health and other important mens topics.
