Yes, you read that right BRIDESMEN! We live in an era where it is totally acceptable to have men as a part of your bridal squad, and I think that is fricken awesome!

What's not awesome is the lack of bridesmen gifts in comparison to groomsmen or bridesmaid gifts!

I did a ton of searching on Pinterest and Etsy and there were very few companies that had pre-made gift ideas with this "newer" term.

No worries though ladies, I got you!

If you're a bro and your reading this:

1. Thank you for the support

2. You're going to get some great ideas for your groomsmen from this article so stay put!


I came across this company on Etsy originally and it {by a blessing} was a one-stop-shop for all my bridesmen needs!

This company was not only super accommodating with my customized ideas but they were super quick with all their email responses and even had them created and delivered faster than some of the pre-made items I ordered from other companies! *mind blown*

They have so many more options than shown in the photos below so I highly recommend you check out their store so you have a better idea of everything they offer!

I got the following:

• Personalized Engraved Eooden Gift Box

(This box alone almost got more excitement then everything in it haha. The guys LOVED this!)

• Personalized Engraved Shot Glasses (2)

• Personalized Engraved Matte Black Flask

(Love how these turned out. Such great quality and looked so chic.)

• Personalized Bullet Key Chain/Bottle Opener

(They had this on their keys the second they saw it!)

• Engraved w/ Initials Lighter

I got the larger box option since I thought all these goodies were TOO perfect for them but they also have bundles that come smaller or larger depending on your budget and what you are looking for!


Just a little background information on my bridesmen proposal:

I had a champagne brunch as a way to gather my friends (in the US) to ask them to be my bridesmaids/men and to give them more information on my wedding (in South Africa) so they could start planning.

There weren't any manly options for champagne glasses (all the fonts were girly and shiny- which wasn't the vibe for the men I specifically had) so I wanted something fun that would work cute with the brunch aspect.

I came across these mason jars from Urban Farm House Tampa and I instantly fell in love!

If you haven't seen my Champagne Brunch video yet you totally have to! Brian's reaction to the monogramed mason jar at the beginning of the video is priceless!

While browsing I also found personalized beer glasses and they were just too good to pass up! I got them customized to say their name and underneath 'bridesmen' which I thought was super special {again, because there wasn't anything out there that said bridesmen}!

Love this company and how easy it was to work with them on creating something unique!

Their also awesome because they're from Tampa, Florida! Woot woot!

Thanks for taking time to read my blog post! I hope you find value in it! If you're new to seeing my content, Hi my name is Mariah! I love sharing my take on fashion, travel, beauty, lifestyle, relationships, bridal and more!

I have been writing + creating photo/video content since I was about 12 years old (2007) - never in my wildest dreams thinking I could be doing this as a full time job 10 years down the road.

I moved to South Africa shortly after meeting my husband and we got married 5 years later (2020)! We often travel back and forth between Florida, USA and Cape Town, South Africa - both of them home to us.

I have two puppies, Chai + Bentley. And I hope to be telling you about children some day soon!

Until then, I will keep sharing my current passions, tips + tricks, thoughts + tools for life! The adventure continues....!
