    I would just to worried that they wouldn’t accept it if things are sharpied over.. :S

     

    I would make them a cute diy ticket and have the fi hold them…though the guys aren’t gonna care and probably know how much the tickets run anyway so they can probably assume how much was paid 😉

    Leave the prices on the tickets and don’t mess with them. Some places will void the tickets if you write on them, etc. Be careful! Now, I might have Fiance keep them until game day, just to make sure everybody keeps up with them, unless Fiance is the unorganized one. 🙂 Cool gift!

    I wouldn’t alter the ticket.  Most guys wouldn’t even pay attention to that, maybe some do, but most not.  If you’re worried about them caring about the price, just have FH hold them and let them know about the day he has planned on a mock ticket or something.

    Whatever you do, do NOT alter the ticket themselves. They will be VOID. If you think the guys have a chance of losing the original tickets, create a symbolic ticket or something and have your groom hold the tickets until the event.

    Great idea!!

    Definitely do a DIY ticket (or even just a card that says they’re getting a free game ticket). I don’t think the guys would even think twice if the groom held onto the ticket the entire time. I think the only snafoo you could run into is if the guys wanted to keep the stubs as a memento, and if the price is on the stub, too, well, that could be a problem.

    But definitely don’t alter the ticket in any way.

    I imagine they’re going to know what the tickets cost anyway, whether you see the price on the ticket or not.  I gave my Dad Bruce Springsteen tickets for father’s day, and they said $98 on them clear as day, but anyone who goes on Ticketmaster could figure out quickly what they cost.

    Also, at most stadiums/venues, they don’t rip the tickets anymore.  They just scan them and give the entire ticket back.  They’ll need it to get to their seats and stuff, so they’re going to see the price no matter what.

    Plus, as posters above said, they probably won’t even notice.
