- Wedding: October 2013
So its quite customary to give gifts to your wedding party, however I have a unique situation and don’t know what to do. One of our groomsmen is in medical school and will be in his surgery rotation at the time – he has warned us in advance that he can’t verify yes or no to be in the wedding till about 2 or 3 months out since they do not have control over their schedules as 3rd year students. Even if he can’t attend he would still be listed in the program as an honorary groomsmen. My question is whether we would still need to purchase a groomsmen gift if he is unable to attend, as he would not have to buy a suit and preform other obligations of the groomsmen?
