Best Groomsman Gifts for Bikers

I’m a big fan of personalizing the groomsman gifts. Don’t get generic gifts for the guys who stood by you during your wedding! If your buddies are bikers here are some great groomsman gifts I found that are not only unique they aren’t too expensive either.

Here’s a cool humidor groomsman gift crafted with a cherry finish, cedar lining and a built-in hygrometer to measure humidity. It even comes personalized with the groomsman’s name. It’s is also on sale plus free shipping at the time I wrote this.

Here’s a couple of unique biker bar pub plaques that come personalized with the groomsman’s name. These are well under $50 too!

Sorry for the lack of regular posting but we’ve been pretty busy setting up our new online Wedding Shop!

Our Wedding Plus just went live with our new Wedding Shop packed with pretty much every wedding accessory you can think of.  Including bridal jewlery, bridal veils, wedding bands, wedding cake toppers, unity candles, bridesmaid gifts, groomsman gifts and a whole lot more!  The selection is gigantic but we have a lot of easy links on the main page and there’s also a search feature to help you find what you want!

We plan on making the wedding shop landing page prettier in the near future but we wanted to get it online as soon as possible. 

And the Winner Is….

Wedding Memory Giveaway Contest

The moment you’ve all been waiting for has arrived!  Thanks to everyone who participated in the Great Wedding Memory Giveaway!

I’d like to start off by thanking all of the entrants for the well thought out and very useful comments. I think this post will go down in history as one of the most useful wedding blog posts ever! Not that I’m biased or anything. Future brides will be able to look at this post’s comments and add quality, reduce costs, and reduce the stress of their wedding with the wealth of experience they will find!

I’d also like to thank the 12 great wedding bloggers for their participation in helping me judge this contest. They each took time out of their busy schedules to read through all the comments and selected their favorite. Bear in mind, these bloggers aren’t just bloggers, in many cases they are very experienced and very busy wedding planners, invitation designers, event designers, etc! I’m flattered that they helped me with this contest by judging and also by helping me spread the word!

Here are the judges!

Melissa from Masterpiece Weddings
Thryn from wedlog
Darci from With this Ring
Lynn from The Handcrafted Wedding
Saundra from planning…forever
Miss Purple from Miss Purple’s Diary of Destination Wedding Drama
Miss Polka from Polkadotbride
Monica from WhiteboxWedding
Liene from Blue Orchid Designs
Anne from perfectbound
Rebekah from Elizabeth Anne Designs
Nicole from NicEvents

Now, the thing I find most amazing and indicative of the high quality of the submissions…of all twelve votes cast by the judges, only two were for the same comment!

So the winner of the contest only had two votes, meaning we had 10 runners up. Since all the runners up were tied for second place, I’m going to give each of them a free Our Wedding Plus wedding website! So without further ado here are the results…

The overall winner with two votes (winner of 10 Cruzers & a Wedding Website):   Comment #35 – Shauna

Runners Up (winners of a Wedding Website):

#7 – Sarah
#10 – Mary
#12 – Lauren
#20 – Rachel
#22 – Kat
#23 – Tara
#33 – Le

Can’t Pick Out Wine to Save your Life?

I like wine, luckily not as much as I like chocolate, otherwise I wouldn’t get anything done! But, I do like a glass now and then. And, it turns out wine is not only a great treat with dinner, it can make a great gift for your bridal party too. But if you send me into the store to pick up a good bottle of wine, I’m totally lost. If I have to pick out wine, first thing I’ll do is find the nicest label, then see if the price is within my range, and then hope for the best! As you might expect, this doesn’t always work out. So, picking up a bottle of wine as a gift is definitely treading on dangerous territory!

I have a feeling I’m not the only one who has this problem, so I figured I’d find a way to help us out. Now do you want to really impress your friends? And, even look like you are a wine connoisseur!

Just Say No to Bobble Heads! Get a Personal Groomsman Gift

I’ve been reading about people buying custom bobble heads as gifts for the groomsmen. I feel the need to intervene on behalf of all the red-blooded groomsmen out there. I’m not sure where the idea came from or why anyone, especially a guy, would get excited about receiving a bobble head personalized in the image of the bride and groom. So I asked my husband Jack to help me out today by providing some manly gifts that will let your groomsmen know you appreciate them! So, I want to give Jack credit for giving me the man’s perspective…

First off, I think it is much better to get your bridesmaids or groomsman each a unique gift for their unique tastes. If one likes golf, get him something golf related, if one likes cigars, get him something cigar related, if one likes bobble heads, get him a some counseling sessions :-), you get the idea…

Okay here’s some ideas geared to unique tastes…

For the golf lover: Checkout Groomstand.com for this Swiss Army Golf Set or Groomstop.com for this golf cooler. Both these companies have a wide variety of additional golf related gifts.

For the cigar lover: Both this personalized humador and cigar cutter are from Groomstand.com

For the executive: And once again, this leather Rawlings Portfolio and personalized business card holder are from Groomstand.com.

For the beer lover: Get a beer of the month club subscription. The Microbrewed Beer of the Month Club looks like a good option.

So, just say no to the bobble head and get you groomsmen something that they would actually use and know that they are appreciated!

See you tomorrow with some chilling wedding information!
