Will You Be His Groomsman?

Not only did we have a fun way for me to ask my bridesmaids to be in our wedding, but we wanted to do something unique for the guys, too.  Here are the boxes we created for the men.  I hope some of you get the joke...



Now for the men [as you can see, it was impossible to get them all at the same place at the same time]

David and Jeff:
David [left] is Mike's childhood friend who lived down the street from him, and Mike met Jeff [right] in college.  They've been friends ever since and Jeff was one of our old roommates.  
And yes, he asked them in the middle of a restaurant parking lot...

James:
James and Mike have been friends since high school when they were both lifeguards, and during junior year of college, they were suite mates at UConn.  James is our weekly "Monday Night Football" buddy.

Kane:
Mike met Kane and Jeff at the same time in college.  He's the one who we can count on to do anything fun.  He and Mike go skiing, and I ran the Electric Run with him this summer.  


Phil:
 Phil and Mike met at church when they were little.  They've made mischief together for the last 15 years, and Phil was one of Mike's first roommates in our house.  I remember the very first night Mike moved this house: he, Phil, and I ate Chinese food on the floor, in the middle of the dining room, under the chandelier, before they had a dining room table... or any furniture.

As you can see, they all definitely enjoyed their "icing"s - okay, maybe not, but it was a memorable way to ask them!

Here's what we did: Meg and Mike's Wedding:
The Proposal
Will You Be Our Flower Girl?
Will You Be My Bridesmaid?

HAHAHA, oh my gosh this is perfect! I just got engaged and we're trying to think of things like this. We have a running joke with getting iced in our group of friends. I may have to steal this idea from you! :)

This is AWESOME!! I almost put a Smirnoff up my dress when we were going to do the garter, but I was afraid it was going to fall out!!!

Thanks for linking up girl!

And So I Did said...

That is such a super cute idea! Jake didn't tell his best man that he was his best man until like 2 weeks before the wedding... he said "I figured he just knew..." Hahaha!

I wanted to let you know I nominated you for a Liebster award! The post will go live tomorrow at 7am!
