Editors’ note: Miss Coral handed over the reins to Mr. Coral for this post so he could tell the hive firsthand how he asked his groomsmen to be in their wedding.
You guys already read about how Miss Coral asked her bridesmaids to be her bridesmaids. It was cute and fun and very girly. Well, that’s not how I am. I wanted to punish my guys while also making it fun. My groomsmen are childhood friends and college roommates. Miss Coral gave her bridesmaids little bottles of champagne, so I wanted to bust out a classic prank and ICE my friends.
Don’t know what icing is? It’s when you present someone with a bottle of Smirnoff Ice and they have to get down on one knee and chug it. Smirnoff Ice is disgusting, and forcing a guy to chug a bottle is hilarious. But Miss Coral presented her bridesmaids with really cute boxes, so I had to do something. Plus, ALL of my groomsmen live out of town, and I wasn’t reasonably going to be able to ask them all in person. So, that’s where the mail comes into play.
I started out by getting some note cards and writing out a message to each of my groomsmen about why I wanted them to be in the bridal party. I lead each card off by saying, “The bridesmaids got champagne. You get ICED!” Then, I also drew a little characterization of each person on the front of their card using the mustache on the front as a basis.
