Are you asking groomsmen to be in your wedding? Not sure how to do it? Stefanie wrote us with a question last week in our Ask Emmaline inbox wondering the very same thing. She writes,
“Hi Emmaline Bride! I see lots of be my bridesmaid ideas, but we are wondering if you have ideas for asking groomsmen to be in our wedding. Do you have any tips or gift suggestions? Thank you!”
Hey, Stefanie, great question! True: there are so many creative bridesmaid proposal ideas out there, with new ones popping up all the time. But what about the groomsmen? There’s plenty of those, too, but they often get overlooked.
We scoured the web for unique asking groomsmen ideas / gifts / suggestions… and here’s what we found for you. We hope it helps!
