The topic of this article is of a real-life subject that has been mentioned "in-universe" in a canon source. The Harry Potter Wiki is written from the perspective that all information presented in canon is true (e.g., Hogwarts really existed), and, as such, details contained in this article may differ from real world facts.
At the wedding of James Potter and Lily Evans, Sirius Black was chosen as the best man, as he was the best friend of the groom. Similarly, the best man at the Wedding of William Weasley and Fleur Delacour was Charles Weasley, the eldest brother of the groom.
It is possible that, as in the Muggle world, the best man is usually made the godfather of the wedded couple's first child. This theory is supported by the fact that Sirius Black became the godfather of Lily and James Potter's only child.
