September is the second most popular month for weddings, falling in right behind the ever-famous June. The reason so many couples get hitched this time of year is, in large part, because of the mild weather – it’s started to cool off a bit yet it’s not too cold in most parts of the country. In my opinion and in my part of the world, October and November make nice months for nuptials.
While your bride tends to every last detail of your amazing autumn wedding, she has probably left a few tasks for you. In addition to choosing your groomsmen and selecting the wedding day attire for the men, you’re most likely charged with shopping for and buying the groomsmen gifts along with a best man gift and ring bearer gift. It is so common for grooms-to-be to approach the shopping task with less excitement than the bride. However, you don’t want to be playing catch-up in the days before the event; racing around town trying to find meaningful groomsmen gifts at the 11th out is not fun. You’ll end up generic gifts that don’t show your true sentiments of appreciation or, worse case scenario; you’ll end up without any groomsmen gifts to give at all!
Even though you in charge of finding the “perfect” groomsmen gift, it doesn’t mean it has to be super expensive or overly sentimental. Just think about what your buddies would like? What would they actually use and not stick in a drawer to get lost or passively display on a shelf to collect dust? We’re all for practical AND fun gifts at GroomStand.com. Chances are that you’ve probably had a lot of fun with your friends in the past; choosing a gift for groomsmen that reflects these good times and also is a guy gift that will be used frequently makes a real winner in cool best man gifts and groomsmen gifts.
