The latest trend in weddings isn’t about making the day more special for the couple saying ‘I do.’ They already get to be in every picture and go home with a box full of checks and a new slow cooker. Instead, brides and grooms are adding a second proposal to their wedding. They’ve already said ‘yes’ to each other and now it’s time to get down on one knee for their groomsman. Or better yet, send a card.
Groomsman proposals are an excellent way for grooms to give their friends and family members an early ‘thank you’ for helping to make their special day so, well, special. It’s an honor to be asked to be a groomsman, but it can also mean a lot of work. Helping to pick out tuxes, plan the engagement and bachelor parties, decorate reception halls and make sure the groom’s great Aunt Gladys doesn’t sit near her ex-husband and his new wife can be a considerable time and money expense. Show your groomsman that you appreciate everything they’re doing to help with your wedding by asking them to be in your bridal party with a groomsman proposal card.
Funny, thoughtful, and with options for an extended personal note or none at all (gotta save the good stuff for the speeches), these groomsman cards will make any guy feel like the bride, but without having to get up at 5 a.m. for hair and makeup.
