You’ve popped the big question, and now it’s time to propose to your best friends. Your wedding party is made up of your closest friends and family members, from your childhood friends to your college buddies. Your group of groomsmen will be your support system through the wedding planning process and during the craziness of the big day. Once you’ve narrowed it down to the select few who will get to stand by your side on the most important day of your life, you’re ready to ask them to in your wedding. Here are 10 creative and fun ways to propose to your groomsmen.
1. I mustache you a question
Mustaches are a fun trend that can be easily incorporated into your groomsman proposals. Fill a box with items that can be adorned with mustache stickers and labels, such as a bottle of his favorite beer and a pint glass. You mustache them a question – will they be your groomsmen?

In traditional wedding day attire, men hardly have any room to add a bit of their own personality. Cufflinks are the one accessory where men can add a fun twist on the standard suit and tie. When asking your groomsmen to be a part of your wedding, why not provide them with great cufflinks they can wear both on the day and afterwards?

7. Plan an event
If you’re more interested in spending quality time with your bros instead of sending them a card or gift, you can plan an event for everyone. Beer tasting, golfing or a sporting event are all great ideas. When you’ve got your group together, you can pop the question to everyone at once.

If you already know that your groomsmen will need to wear something special for your big day, such as a bowtie or a special printed tie, include it when you ask your friends to be in your wedding! This will alleviate some of the pressure and costs of being a groomsman. Pair your item with their favorite bottle of liquor to make the gesture even more exciting.

9. Fun socks
If your groomsmen are going to rent their tuxes and bowties for the wedding, you can still influence their attire by giving them a pair of socks! Create individual labels asking your friends to wear the socks as they stand by your side during your wedding.
