I’m looking for the same answer!  My Fiance is holding me up on some planning stuff!  He’s only asked his Bridesmaid or Best Man so far!

My Fiance asked his Bridesmaid or Best Man at BM’s daughter’s bday party, he called the other two Groomsmen who were out of town, and he had lunch with the other Groomsmen and asked him then.

haha, by TEXT! He asked them the day after we got engaged, by texting all of them individually. Apparently they all knew he was proposing, so he said they were expecting something. 

Boys!

On the phone/in person. Nothing very exciting/creative, but he got it done!

Fiance didn’t ask…two of them assumed (his sons…LOL) and his Bridesmaid or Best Man has been his Boyfriend or Best Friend for 20+ years and one of our biggest champions throughout our relationship. He got off easy =)

Either by phone or just randomly in person – whatever was easiest for each individual.  I did the same with my BMs.

He just asked them when we next saw them after the engagement–nothing major. Guys don’t really care “how” they ask, like some brides do when asking the BMs. Just make sure he gets it done!

So glad to hear I’m not the only one who had to ask my Fiance several times to get the job done! Seriously, what are they waiting for?

My Fiance has five groomsmen, four of which are on a weekly bowling team with him. So he asked those four at one of their bowling nights, and the fifth one (who lives out of town) he asked over New Year’s while he was in town. Nothing special. I seriously don’t know why it took him so long to do it after he selected his guys!

He’s got 1 Bridesmaid or Best Man and 6 GMs … in a total of three different states … none of which we live in. Simple phone calls did the job just fine. Although, we’ve been engaged since November 6, 2010 and he just now talked to the last 3 guys this past week.
