Are you getting married? If you are, you probably have to consider hiring a wedding planner. Or take on the entire wedding planning by yourself. For the groom, it is never a one-person task to plan this elaborate event, and you may have to rope in a few of your friends. As part of the planning, you would need to make a list of the number of groomsmen you wish to have.
Regardless of the numbers, there are a few things that go hand in hand with an event such as a wedding. These include clothes, accessories, and gifts that will fit the theme of the wedding. While it is lovely to gather all your close friends to perform the role of groomsmen, it is also possible to have a smaller number as long as you handle it without hurting anyone’s feelings. Of course, consulting with your fiancée on how many bridesmaids she will have will help you pick and choose your groomsmen.
Duties Of Groomsmen
Groomsmen play the role of ushers as they guide the guests to their places for the wedding ceremony. They also stand near the groom during the wedding. They must be organized and plan other events surrounding a wedding, such as a bachelor party and keep track of the groom’s needs before the event. While one of the groomsmen may also be the best man, they all participate in the celebratory occasion by lending assistance where it is needed and ensuring that the ceremony goes off without a hitch.
Rewarding The Groomsmen
While groomsmen do not assist with an eye on the potential reward, they almost always receive well-chosen gifts. Therefore, you should plan your wedding budget to include gifts for bridesmaids and groomsmen. Gifts don’t have to be lavish or extravagant. A thoughtful token to remember the occasion will do just as well. Whatever it is, there will be a price to pay, and it may be small or large depending on the number of groomsmen at the wedding party.
Gifts For Groomsmen
Some of the usual gifts include hip flasks, beer mugs, engraved cufflinks, engraved watch case, etc. They may also be more general, such as engraved cutting boards, bags of toiletries, or a leather tote. What would make the gift even more remarkable is if it speaks of the groomsmen’s personal interests, be it professional or personal. These gifts are always personalized, and the wedding planner tends to take a lot of time and effort to make the gifts unique and meaningful.
