On the big day, you’ll no doubt receive a small mountain of wonderful gifts, but don’t forget that it’s also tradition for the groom to offer gifts to a number of wedding guests as well.
If you’re unsure whom you’re supposed to buy for, and what would make a fitting gift, simply follow this guide and you can’t go wrong!
As soon as you get engaged, you’ll quickly start thinking about who you want up there at the altar with you to celebrate this incredibly special moment. Whether it’s old high school friends, family members, or close work colleagues, these men no doubt mean a lot to you.
Whether they had to travel to make it to your wedding, buy a new suit or have had to give up some of their free time, being a groomsman can come with a few responsibilities. To show your appreciation and say thanks, it’s a good idea to find a gift for each one.
Usually, grooms will offer matching gifts for the groomsmen, and they are often things that can be worn on during the wedding, such as this sleek and stylish Claude Bernard dress watch.
Your father and the father of the bride have both likely played huge roles in both of your upbringings. Your wedding day is a hugely special and important moment for them too, so it’s a great idea to say thanks for all of their hard work and love over the years.
A watch is again a fantastic gift for this occasion, especially if you organise to have an inscription on the back to mark the occasion. In this case, look for a style that suits him, and talk to your partner about her father’s tastes to find the right one. A timeless classic such as this Edox Les Bemonts is a great example of a piece that will be treasured forever.
Your ring bearer
He may be the smallest member of your wedding party, but you can guarantee that it’s a huge moment for him and that he’s immensely proud to be part of your big day!
The ring bearer’s job is an important one, so if you have a young man in your life to fill these shoes, be sure to give him something to remember it by. Something small is perfectly fine in this case, for example a Lorus Men’s Watch that may well be his very first real watch! Other fun ideas include things such as a personalised t-shirt saying ‘ring bearer’ or even ‘ring security’, a photo album with a few printed shots of him holding the rings at the start, or a game such as ‘ring toss’!
