Most of the time, we get wedding advice questions from brides, but sometimes we get one from a groom. And we love it. Here’s the latest question that came into our wedding advice inbox from groom-to-be, Alex, getting married in June. His question has to do with where to buy fishing gifts for groomsmen and what qualifies as a good enough gift. He asks,
“Hi Emmaline Bride, I am getting married this June and my buddies are all avid fishermen / outdoorsmen. I want to give them fishing groomsmen gifts but my fiance thinks it won’t be a good enough gift. Does the gift have to be “fancy” or can I just get them fishing gear, since I know they would like it? We spend lots of weekends fishing together. Thanks for considering.”
Hi, Alex! First of all, thanks for writing: we love hearing from the groom! And while wedding gifts vary greatly from couple to couple, we love when groomsmen receive gifts they will actually use. If your groomsmen would enjoy fishing related gifts, go for it. There is really no specific qualifications when it comes to groomsmen gifts (except we think they ought to be personalized and, you know, awesome) and it would be a waste to give them a gift they wouldn’t use, just to fit into some mold of what a wedding gift is supposed to be. With that being said, though, there are plenty of fishing groomsmen gifts out there that ARE perfect for weddings. For instance, one of our favorite shops stocked with fishing gifts for groomsmen is definitely C and T Custom Lures. They create some of the greatest groomsmen gifts we’ve ever seen, along with finds for groomsmen that might not be as fishing-frenzied as the others (i.e. keychains, bookmarks, guitar picks, etc.) We’ve rounded up a few here to inspire you. Take a look and hopefully you can cross this one off of your to-do list thanks to their awesome shop. Enjoy!
Fishing Gifts for Groomsmen
Aren’t these perfect? You could include a personalized fishing lure with a tackle box or tackle bag plus a YETI (and one of these!) for the ultimate fishing groomsmen gift.
Don’t forget one for the groom, too!
