They may be meeting for the first time at the wedding or it may be more likely that they have already met at the stag do, which may make the gifting process a little easier as you had time to think about something that they all have in common apart from you!

If your reading this and you are a groomsman/best man here are a few tips for you…

Before the wedding

  • Keep all the groomsmen organised – start a watsapp group or email list
  • Make sure you plan a killer (not literally) safe but wild stag
  • Ensure that everyone attends stag
  • Prep best man speech
  • Make sure that attire for yourself including socks, shoes etc and for the other groomsmen is sorted
  • Ensure full communication with the bridal party
  • Run through best man speech, make sure its not too long or too short, make sure its PG and doesn’t insult anyone particularly the bride
  • Get the groom a gift (see above for ideas)

 

On the wedding day

  • Ensure the ushers are aware of any seating issues/family disagreements/exes and or rivals and that they are sat far away from one another
  • Do not trust ring bearer’s adult, child or any other form. Give them fakes and swap them for the real wedding rings at the top of the aisle.
  • Make sure you always keep the groom within sight 
  • Be on hand to settle nerves and last minute doubts
  • Do not have more than one alcoholic drink in the morning you never know if you may need to pick someone up or drop someone off
  • Try not to ask the groom anything on the day and make sure he doesn’t have more than a couple of drinks before the ceremony
  • Make sure you are the last one on the dancefloor 

Tips for best man speech:

  1. Add a few jokes a few personal and a few vague
  2. Keep the innuendos PG as possible
  3. Add a few romantic quotes
  4. Keep it short
  5. Save a compliment or two for the bride and the groom

There you have it some great ideas, inspiration, styles and ideas for the gifts to suit the grooms party. Remember this day only comes once and the journey you are about to embark upon may only be celebrated once so make it count! The wedding day itself will go very quick and it will be one that you will remember for the rest of your life so absorb every moment. The wedding day is only one day but marriage is a lifetime and a wonderful journey. There will be so many celebrations along the way, ups, downs, it literally is a roller coaster ride but also having a best friend to ride along with you. As Mignon McLaughlin quotes "A successful marriage requires falling in love many times, always with the same person." And if you needed a better definition of love and marriage then Maya Angelou beautifully quotes “Love recognizes no barriers. It jumps hurdles, leaps fences, penetrates walls to arrive at its destination full of hope.”
