- Wedding: August 2013
I shared how I asked my bridesmaids, and now I have the groomsmen version.
The fiancé is a homebrewer so we knew that had to be incorporated, but I thought a theme would bring it all together. Every year, much to my dislike, he participates in Movember, (or No-Shave November), and grows a mustache. The ridiculous part is he has such a baby face that by the end of the month he looks somewhere between a 70’s porn star and a pedophile. It’s bad. All his friends know about it and love to comment so I thought mustaches would be a cute theme. It also happens that with the trendiness of mustaches, there was no lack of inspiration.
I used the free printable from Wedding Chicks and personalized each one.
I taped the card inside of a shipping box from Office Max and filled with shredded kraft paper. I added a bottle of homebrew and made a label carrying the mustache theme. (For the FI’s younger brother, who’s only 20, we filled it with homemade root beer – he was not amused!)
In addition I also added a mustache glass that I etched myself using etching cream and a mustache that I cut out on my cricut. I found the pint glasses at the Dollar Store.
We added a cigar and they were done!
On the outside I used the mustache vinyl negative from the etching project and wrote the guys names using a white paint pen.
Since most of the cost was from the shipping box, these were easily made for less than $5 a piece.
