So, you’ve just got engaged and it’s time to talk to your dudes about their participation in your big day. If you want to ask your friends to be your groomsmen and maybe best men, there are lots of ideas to do that. Girls are usually more creative about bridesmaids’ proposals but grooms can still find some cool ways to do that too. Combine a gift and a proposal in one and give your friends a cool proposal box.
Choose a box that you like – a cardboard, a tin case, a wooden or plywood box. Fill it with straw, paper, moss or something else – you may choose the filler according to the wedding style, for example, moss is great for a woodland wedding. Add a large card with the question to the box lid. Now what to put inside? We’ve gathered some ideas for you to get inspired, let’s have a look at them.
The base of every groomsmen proposal box is alcohol as every guy will appreciate that. It can be a small bottle of whiskey, bourbon, a tin can of beer or liquor, or any other alcohol that your friend likes. If the box is big enough, go for a large bottle and maybe a tin of coke if it’s a whiskey bottle. If you want, you can pack a whole arrangement of mini alcohol bottles to please your friend. If you want, you may add a glass or a shot for the drink.
Cigars are very much appreciated by most of guys, too, so the next thing you should put in is a cigar or several ones. A cigar cutter is a proper addition in this case, and you already get a whole ready box: some alcohol and some cigars. Nothing else is necessary unless you want to add a couple of things more.
You may give your friends some accessories to wear on your big day: a tie, a bow tie, socks, sunglasses, suspenders – all together or just one. They will be a nice idea to add to alcohol and cigars, and you will help your groomsmen to look more unified on the wedding day.
Some snacks will be also a nice idea to add to the box. It’s usually chocolate, which is great for everyone but you may also try beef steak, crackers, cookies or anything that your friend likes or that reminds of the venue where the wedding will take place.
