Don’t sweat it because we’ve got you covered with exciting ideas on how to ‘pop the question’ to your best mates. Think beyond the ordinary groomsmen invites, and let’s add some zest to it, shall we?

Pondering over how to ask your buddies to be a part of your big day can be a highlight of planning the wedding. Here’s the deal: spruce it up with a groomsmen proposal gift—or, why not, multiple gifts! Adding a gift box to accompany your groomsmen proposal card is a great way to make your invitations feel extra special. Let’s dive into some unique gift ideas to make your groomsman proposal an unforgettable experience.

When should you propose to your groomsmen?

Ask your friends to be your groomsmen around three to six months before the wedding. This timing allows your groomsmen ample time to plan for any responsibilities, such as organizing the bachelor party, and ensures they can arrange their schedule around your big day. If your wedding involves significant travel or your friends have particularly busy schedules, send the groomsmen invitations even earlier.
