1. Send a hilarious card

What better way to ask your groomsmen to be in your bridal party then with a funny card! Make them laugh and they won’t be able to refuse your offer. You can find plenty of ideas online, or think of your own joke only they will understand.

2. Surprise them with a fun gift box

Trust us, they won’t be able to say ‘no’ if you send them a great gift box! Think of things they really like and send out a hamper box or even a funny but useful survival kit. If you know their taste well and you want to give them something special, you can even select a subscription box for each of your groomsmen!

3. Treat them with a bottle of alcohol

There is nothing more masculine than a bottle of expensive whisky! You can personalise the bottles with your own labels which include your friends’ names. You can print your proposal on the label or include a separate card in the package. Alternatively, you can send six-pack beers instead of whisky.

4. Give them high-quality cigars

Cigars have been associated with men for centuries and it symbolises brotherhood among male friend. If you and your friends respect this tradition, send them premium quality Cuban cigars along with funny will-you-be-my-groomsman cards to each of them! We are sure they will appreciate this kind gesture.

5. Engrave your gifts

If you want to surprise your future groomsmen with special keepsakes, use engraving to personalise your gifts. From whisky and beer glasses to cufflinks and watches, choose presents you think they will love and use in years to come.

6. Organise a dinner

Do you want to pop the question to all of them in person? Book a table in a nice restaurant and treat them with a delicious dinner. It will be fun to throw a bombshell during dinner! Whether it is pub serving superb gourmet burgers with premium beer or a fine dining restaurant, make sure your selected venue serves food all of your friends will love.

7. Have drinks with them

You can’t go wrong with a fun night out! Invite your friends to a pub, order a round of drinks and ask them to help you celebrate your wedding. Make it look like it is warming up for the buck’s night and they will get in the right mood to say “yes”.
