While the role of the bridesmaid is widely documented, the part your groomsmen play in your wedding is often more understated and in some cases can even be overlooked. As the bride is busy bustling and preening in preparation for the big day surrounded by a gaggle of girlfriends, groomsmen are also working behind the scenes to comfort, support and possibly distract the groom until the nuptials take place.

Groomsmen’s gifts – standard practice

For his unassuming, yet important role in the lead up to and during your main event, it is standard practice to give your groomsmen a gift as a token of appreciation for the part they play in ensuring your wedding day is a success.

Men are practical creatures. Giving them something original and durable they can actually use in the world beyond the wedding is the best way to say thank you for fulfilling their responsibilities and standing by their man (the groom).
