You picked the ring, got down on one knee, popped the question, and she said yes…
Congratulations! That was probably a relief (kidding, but also not – the proposal nerves are real!). Now that you’re engaged… what’s next?
Rounding up your buds for the party of a lifetime, that’s what! You can’t picture your big day without them, so it’s time to ask them that important question…
“Will you stand with me on the big day?”
Most likely, you already know what your entourage will say. After all, they are your ride-or-die’s! Even so, asking with a personal gift in hand will make it an even cooler experience for your best bros.
In partnership with the fantastic Weddingstar, we have crafted several awesome ideas for every budget, from modest to big ticket – we have you covered.
