So, before I delve into recaps of our honeymoon, I want to go back and post a few things I didn’t get a chance to post before the wedding. You already saw my vlog from last week about our favors, but I never posted the rest of the gifts for our wedding party! Today, the Dudes!
If you’ll remember, I made each guy a survival kit to use on the day of the wedding. In hindsight, I should have included shoelaces in this kit (a story I’ll regale you with another time—needless to say, there is a groomsmen missing in the above photo!!!!). But that’s not the only thing we gifted our guys!
First, a special gift for our 5 groomsmen: here in Milwaukee, we have an MLB team you might have heard of…the Milwaukee Brewers. And we have a little tradition at our ballpark called the Racing Sausages:
5 groomsmen, 5 racing sausages. Coincidence? I think not. So we got each of them a racing sausage t-shirt!
Here’s what they look like on the front and back:
Next, we got each guy (including our ushers now) these awesome beer glasses:
I originally heard of these through the totally fabulous Mrs. French Fries and thought they would be a great gift for our dudes. Each one has a different mustache, and we got them personalized with each guy’s nickname:
Dr. Groomy also picked up a special gift for the guys when he was at his barber shop. Ladies, I did NOT have anything to do with this one:
Lastly, we got each guy their favorite hard liquor. Hey, we’re nothing if not realists and we knew they would love it! Here are their gifts all together:
We had all these gifts picked out and wrapped up pretty early, so we didn’t have to worry about that the week of the wedding. I definitely recommend planning ahead, as it was one less thing for me to worry about!
Stay tuned tomorrow when I recap what I got my girls. Until then, tell me: What did you get your groomsmen & ushers? If you’re not married yet, have you thought about what you might gift them?
