My groom was very helpful in planning our wedding, always adding input, picking up things, researching when needed. He was also very independent in the things he wanted for himself (ie: suit, bowtie, shoes, groomsmen gifts, etc). This article from Emmaline Bride made me think of the awesome groomsmen gifts he purchased.
For his groomsmen, he got monogrammed beer bottle openers with lid catches that he ordered from Etsy. These can be mounted on a wall or have a large (strong) magnet on the back so they can go on a fridge! We’ve visited several groomsmen since the wedding and these have been proudly displayed on the fridge with at least a few beer caps in the catch. I thought this was a great, practical gift but also personalized since he had them monogrammed (or “had initials put on them” as he called it).
We loved Etsy while planning our wedding and got not only some gifts from sellers on the site, but decorations and our wedding programs. Our groomsmen also got to keep their darling navy gingham J. Crew bowties, although I think the beer bottle opener will get more use.
Would love to hear about other groomsmen gifts that you’ve given, received or heard of! I know folks are always looking for new and creative ideas!
Special congrats to my sweet friend, Courtney, who got engaged last weekend while cruising with her now fiance. So excited for these two lovebirds and cannot wait to celebrate with them while they plan their big, special day!
