Wedding Wednesday: Asking the Groomsmen

     DFH like myself is also very lucky to be having seven of his best friends stand by his side on our wedding day.  He also wanted to find a unique way to ask his guys, to be a part of our big day.  Obviously, he wanted to do something a little less girly then monogrammed Bridesmaid Tervis Tumblers.  ( See my post on how I asked my Bridesmaids HERE). 

      This past winter while I was searching bridesmaid ideas for myself I had come across a few blogs where grooms had asked their groomsmen through beer. I knew DFH, the craft beer connoisseur would jump on this idea....And he did!

          He decided he wanted to  make personalized beer labels, asking his friends to be groomsmen and wrap them around one of his favorite beers.  First, Doug used the website My Own Labels to make his custom beer labels.  The site is great and allowed him to customize the picture, color, and font used for the beer label.  

    Of course, boys being boys, DFH picked the silliest picture he had of himself to use for the label.  He wrote: "I'm Going to Need Your Help On This One, Will You Be My Groomsman?"

 Once the labels arrived, DFH picked up his favorite go-to craft beer Dogfish Head 90 Minute IPA  to use for the labels.  Fun fact:  Dogfish Head has the same initials as DFH and the 90 minute bottles contain colors from our wedding color scheme, so obviously I liked that about it!

 The labels have sticky backs so they were easy to use.  DFH removed all of the old labels from the Dogfish Head bottles and added his customized labels.  

They turned out great!  DFH bought a extra large bottle for his Best Man and attached a custom label with a picture of the two of them that read, "Best Friends, Best Beer....Best Man?" ( Sorry for all of the glare). 

  Most of DFH's groomsmen also live out of state so we had to make sure that the beers were wrapped well, to avoid any beer spillage.

And they all said YES!
