Mr. Rucksack was a little concerned about sending his groomsmen “Will you be my groomsman?” gifts. While he and his friends are actually pretty adorable and regularly send each other snail mail, everything he had seen in the way of popping the question to a dude was just a little over the top.
We settled on a simple card that I designed based on a picture I found by typing “men drinking champagne” on the interwebs. However, we also have a junior groomsmen who is only nine, and we had to come up with an alternate idea for him. Little Cousin Rucksack, or GM Brobot as I’m sure he would prefer, is seriously too cool for words. He’s really excited about our wedding, and even though we hadn’t asked him to be in the bridal party yet, he was already busy picking out bow ties for the occasion.
Seriously, this kid is nine and already way cooler than I’ll ever be.
I decided that presenting him with his very own bow tie would be the perfect way to ask him to be a groomsman in our wedding, so the search began. Luckily, Peter Blair was having a $10 tie sale when I happened to visit. Super score! The deal was so good that we decided to get bow ties for all the boys. They’ll have the option to wear them to the wedding or to wear one of their own.
