I was talking to Fiance about him asking his friend to be his Best Man and how he was going to do it. He said he was just going to ask. I’m a nerd and like to make everything special so he was willing to do it if it were manly enough and can’t be ‘cute’ lol. So his friend is coming to help us move along with a bunch of other people and after they’ve helped we’re going to cook out and feed everyone and have some beers and such. I was thinking Fiance could offer him a beer and hand him a beer in a coozie that says Best Man. What do you think? I just want to make it special for his friend because he is so excited for Fiance and he is the sweetest guy and I can tell he is chomping at the bit to be asked so I think he would love a ‘story’ to tell people on how he was asked.

I think you should let your fiance ask him how he wants to ask him, and how he is comfortable doing so. it’s his friend, his best man, and their relationship dynamics.

@Cash000: I said in my post that I asked him if he wanted to do something and he said he would but that it couldn’t be labled ‘cute’. If he wanted to do nothing he would have said, ‘no I just want to ask him one on one’ and I would have said ‘cool’.

I think it’s a great idea!

Depends on the relationship. There was no way in hell my husband would have done anything like that. He actually didnt even really ‘ask’… he just told his best friend he had to be there and is the best man. I dont think guys really tell a ‘story’ about how they were asked to be a groomans like we tell our engagement stories.

I’d just let your Fiance do what he wants. Guys are so different from women and the dynamic of their friendships are very different from female ones. Asking their friends to be in the wedding party isn’t the same as it is to us. I think if he did ask them in some way that you suggest, his friends will probably know it wasn’t his idea, which kind of takes away from it being more his style.

I think it’good cute non geeky thing to do. Just make sure you guys decide on it together and he thinks it’s a good idea. Just cause a guy isn’t creative on his own doesn’t mean hto doesn’t want to do something cool!

I like the idea but if your Fiance isn’t into it then I wouldn’t push it on him. Let him do it how he wants to.

I think it’s a cute idea, but, I don’t think a lot of guys see sentiment in things like the same as girls do – don’t be hurt if your Fiance isn’t as excited about it as you are.
