Grateful Groomsmen: Buying a collective gift

by epi on November 23, 2011

Q: Is it appropriate for groomsman to buy a collective groomsman’s gift for the groom in addition to a wedding gift?

A: Yes, this is traditional. It usually is something personal or monogrammed, although it can be anything at all that symbolizes their friendship/relationship with him.  This gift is given at the rehearsal dinner, or if there is a groom’s party/bachelor party or event, at that time.

When an engagement is first announced, which parents traditionally reach out first to the other parents, the brides or the grooms?
