What better way to show your appreciation for your groomsmen then providing them with an awesome gift?
A fun gift idea is to give all your groomsmen a pair of colourful socks to keep everyone’s feet warm and to insure everyone is ready for that iconic sock photo. A twist on this if you and your guys love superheroes is to give each of them their own superhero T-shirt that they can wear under their suits so they can feel like a superhero for the big day.
A more traditional groomsmen gift is to engrave a flask, Swiss army knife or beer mug with their names. Put a spin on this by proving each of your groomsmen with a personalized shaving or travel kit. Make each kit special by providing a few of their favourite grooming products in each kit.
What did you or will you be giving your groomsmen as their thank you gifts?

Not only will hosting your wedding ceremony and/or reception in the comfort of your own backyard save you from spending a large sum of your wedding budget on a venue, it will also allow you to create a breathtaking garden wedding.
Backyard trees become the perfect area for hanging fairy lights, lanterns and ribbons. If you’re lucky enough to have several large trees you can create a dazzling café atmosphere by draping lights or lanterns from one tree to another.
Deciding to have a backyard wedding could provide you the perfect opportunity to show off your natural green thumb or to finally get your backyard landscaped. For a sentimental approach hold your wedding where you grew up, in your parents’ backyard.
What are you thought on backyard weddings?

Your bridesmaids will spend a large amount of their time and money helping you to make your dream reality. Show your gratitude and appreciation for everything your bridesmaids do by presenting each of them with a personalized gift.
A fail-safe gift is to present your girls with an embroidered tote for shopping trips or the beach. Another great option is to give them an embroidered make-up bag that they can take on trips or put in their purse. A great alternative on this would be to find a great jewelry travel holder and have their initials embroidered on the front, the perfect gift if you and your friends love to travel. Looking for an alternative to embroidered totes and bags? A custom wine glass or goblet is generally always appreciated as well.
If you want to guarantee that your bridesmaids will whole heartily love and use their gift you might want to consider giving them every girl’s favourite present, jewelry! A diamond or monogram necklace is a classic and staple accessory that any bridesmaid would be ecstatic to receive. If you’re not a necklace fan another great jewelry option is a charm bracelet! Pandora and Thomas Sabo have an assortment of charm bracelets to fit each one of your bridesmaids personalities making this personal and a touching gift choice.
