DIY Wedding Groomsmen Boxes – Asking the Guys

DIY Wedding Groomsmen Boxes – Asking the Guys

Obviously Matt crafted all of these on his own, NOT! ūüôā¬† When I asked Matt if he wanted to ask his groomsmen in a creative way like my ladies, he said “Sure!”¬† Obviously he knew I’d be the crafter of the idea.¬† But I was excited he let me¬†create these boxes to help ask the guys.¬† At first I worried the guys would think these were lame, but I was very happy that¬†they all¬†seemed to appreciate¬†the sentiment/unique way of asking¬†and thoroughly enjoyed their cocktail (I witnessed at least one round of cheers following the opening of these boxes!)

First off, I knew they couldn’t be all girly and mushy like my Be My Maid boxes were (we ladies can get away with such, the boys– not so much on board).¬† So, I wanted to keep the boys boxes centered around things I know boys like:

1)  Booze

2)¬† Keepin’ it short & sweet

I found these paper mache boxes at Michaels.¬† We found the glass cups at the dollar section at Target- win!¬† The mini Maker’s Mark was ironically the most difficult thing to find, after a few different liquor store runs, I finally found them!¬† I added the nostalgic glass Coca Cola bottle to provide a ready to make celebratory¬†whisky coke for the stud-ly men of our wedding party.¬† Finally, for the cardstock with our wedding info, I kept it in ‘man talk’ and wanted to communicate to the guys that thing isn’t a burden to be in our wedding – it will be fun, we promise! ūüôā

*Funny thing to note, boys don’t typically open boxes & look under the lid – it took a minute for most of the guys to see the question, which was kind of funny- but hey, we got 100% ‘yes’ from our 7 groomsmen & 2 ushers!
