Will You be my Groomsman
The guys are just as important to complement your future husband-to-be. Prior to asking your bridesmaids and groomsmen, it’s important to have a discussion about who you think you are considering as well as you think would pair with each other. Don’t take it literally, these two are not going to start dating or something, but it’s nice to have paired people who may be already dating or married with one another. It’s just another detail to consider…
Guys are a lot simpler them women are. However, asking your gents in a memorable way creates memories for each of you. Here are a few ideas to consider:
1) BBQ Time
Having the boys over for some grilled meat and beers is an inconspicuous way to get them to come over without blowing your cover. Just remember to ask the boys sober!
2) Sporting Event
Get the guys together and go cheer for your favorite team. It’s a nice way to lighten the mood without getting the “are you sure, dude?” or “It’s About Time!” antics.
3) Send a card
I know this probably seems silly, but when is the last time you received mail that wasn’t bill or junk mail related? Guys like cards too. Plus, it doesn’t have to be made out of construction paper or sing a song. It could simply be a question on letterhead asking the question at hand.
4) Got the Gift of Gab?
Perhaps calling your friend and having a heart-to-heart on the phone in a solo sense is how you would like to handle it. Please just don’t text or email your friend that is so very impersonal!
5) Get Competitive
Ask your closes guys to join you in a competitive game. Whether it be golf, baseball, bowling, or billiards creating a fun atmosphere takes the pressure off and hopefully they will all agree to stand and support you on your big day.
