We settled on a simple card that I designed based on a picture I found by typing "men drinking champagne" on the interwebs. However, we also have a junior groomsmen who is only 9 and we had to come up with an alternate idea for him. Little Cousin Rucksack, or GM Brobot as I'm sure he would prefer, is seriously too cool for words. He's really excited about our wedding and even though we hadn't asked him to be in the bridal party yet, he was already busy picking out bow ties for the occasion.
|Seriously, this kid is 9 and already way cooler than I'll ever be.|
|Your Service as a Groomsman is Required. Hoity toity and hilarious.|
Last, but certainly far from least, we needed good ideas for our adorable kiddos. Mr. Rucksack's best friend and Best Man has the two cutest children who will be our ring bearer and flower girl.
After much searching, I decided on a jewelry box for Flower Girl Rucksack, complete with a flower girl version of the star bracelet:
And a pirate chest for Ring Bearer Rucksack. The box is by Melissa & Dog and came complete with gold coins, a pirate flag, and an eye patch. We added a cute card that asked - "Will you guard the rings - and be our ring bearer?"
The kids were psyched. Mostly because they both received cool boxes with treasure (and secret compartments). Ring Bearer Ruckus, who's only three, didn't totally understand the concept of walking down the aisle, but we were assured he could be bribed with pizza. Flower Girl Rucksack is really excited to wear a pink dress!
