Feature Image – Personalized Flask From Groovy Guy Gifts. Knots ‘N Such, Raleigh Wedding Planner and Florist.

If you spend a lot of time around weddings, you begin to see that the wedding party adds some spice to the wedding day.  A great set of groomsmen and bridesmaids will make the celebration a party for all involved. The bride and groom should really thank their wedding party with a small token of their appreciation.  This gift in no way has to be boring! Today on Knots ‘N Such, Raleigh Wedding Planner and Florist, we are talking unique groomsmen gifts. Check out Groovy Guy Gifts because we are big fans of their personalized and memorable gifts to the guys standing by your man on the big day; they made the featured flask with my caricature and title on it! (Why, yes, I do consider myself a goddess! haha!)

Some Unique Ideas Gleaned from The Groovy Guy Gifts Website

  • Personalized Flask, Beer Mug, Shot Glass, Decanters, or Other Fancy Barware Related Gift
  • Coffee Mug for the House or To Go
  • Money Clip or Wallet
  • Travel Gear like a Shaving Kit, Duffel Bag, Backpack, or Other Bag
  • Sporting Equipment like a Bat, Hockey Puck, Football, Etc.
  • Knives or Axes (don’t bring these to the wedding! lol)
  • Cool Set of Sunglasses (might even make a cool group photo!)
  • Something for the Cigar Lovers Out There like a Box or Lighter
  • Wooden or Pocket Watches
  • Individual Bobbleheads

Three Things to Keep in Mind for the Gifts:

  • Personable
    • You want the gift to speak to who you are and who your groom is.  Engraving and personalization will go a long way to making the gift unique and special.
  • Memorable
    • You want it to be something that the recipient will want to keep.  When they look back at the gift, you want them to remember your wedding day and your relationship to them.
  • Relatable
    • You want to, as much as possible, make it connect with the recipient.  Do: give a personalized football to the person who you spend every Saturday with watching the game.  Don’t: give an engraved shot glass to a non-drinker. Maybe that means everyone doesn’t get the same gift and that’s okay!
Groomsmen Cheers

Carrie & John’s wedding day, from ceremony to reception, was filled with beautiful blooms and fantastic details.  Knots ‘N Such, Raleigh Wedding Planner & Florist, had the honor to provide planning, coordination, event, and floral design for their wedding day.  The ceremony was held in an immaculate cathedral at St. Mary Magdalene Catholic Church. After the ceremony, the reception was held at the lovely Oaks at Salem.  We loved developing and bringing Carrie’s vision of soft color palettes and clean, contemporary design to reality.  Their big day also was published on Weddings Magazine, our favorite NC wedding publication!
