Your Buddy's Buddies Gift Set


One of our favorite gifts from Groovy Groomsmen Gifts is their Buddy's Buddies Gift Set! 

This set includes:

➤  Personalized Wooden Box

➤  Personalized Pocket Knife

➤  Personalized 2 oz. Shot Glass

All of these items can be personalized with the same name or initials OR you can have each item different! Your shot glass could say Frank, your knife could say FM, and your box could say Mozingo! 

We LOVE this combo because it works for just about every guy that we know! Who doesn't ever need to cut somethings and drink a little? This might sound like a dangerous combo, but lets be real, your groomsmen will likely get into a little trouble with or without your help. 

Plus, the Buddy's Buddies has a five star review on their site!  ⭑⭑⭑⭑⭑

To prove that this is a great gift, we had Adrienna's boyfriend, Frank, do a review! His favorite part was the personalized box, which he wants to use as a watch box. (He also said the box smelled good!) Frank agreed that it would make a great gift, and that it's something he would give his friends! 

"I really like the knife. It's sharp, and is useful. The shot glass is a nice touch, and can go on my kitchen counter. It has my two favorite things, violence and alcohol!" (Don't worry, he is military, not a maniac) 

So go ahead, go get that gift that you know your guys will spend endless days cutting whatever comes their way and endless nights celebrating! They will be sure to thank you later!

Ditch The Kids Bouquets And Go With Flower Crowns


Ditch The Kids Bouquets And Go With Flower Crowns

Okay, so we all know flower crowns are great accessories in any wedding, and when they're on little tots... Tell me you've seen something cuter. I highly doubt it. 

If you are planning on having kids in your wedding, but are somewhat iffy about making them responsible for keeping up with (and not tearing up, eating, etc.) a bouquet, a flower crown may be a better alternative. The kidlets will be free and able to play tag, dance and twirl, and continue all means of reckless behavior without having to keep track of a bouquet. A flower crown would remain pinned in for the night. Bonus: they'll probably feel like a prince or princess. 

Much like bouquets, flower crowns can lean more towards the greenery side, or more floral. Personally, I want 29486 of each. If you're going for a softer look at your wedding, crowns with more greenery and a tad of baby's breath may be the best option. 

Blooms definitely add a little extra something-something, if you're wanting more flowers! I mean, tell me these little nuggets don't look like cherubs? 

Honestly, whether you like greenery or florals, you can't go wrong with a flower crown and the little ones will be cute in anything! Thanks so much for reading! Good luck!
