The very first DIY project Mr. Lovebird and I undertook together was working on how to ask our groomsmen if they would honor us by being in our wedding party. I always liked the idea of personalized water bottles, like Mrs. Firefly and Mrs. Caterpillar did, so I bounced that idea off of him and said maybe we can do beer bottles instead. After scouring the net for some bottle label images via Google Images, we settled on good old Guinness.

So we started messing around with the image on Adobe but ended up using Microsoft Paint; though not as advanced, it was simpler to use and served our purpose. By using the magic wand function we filled in all the parts we wanted to change by picking the color we wanted to fill it in with. Click the image to open in full size.

Then we personalized it by changing the year to 1982, which just so happened to be everyoneâ€s birth year. My fiance and I met in high school and all of our groomsmen were our fellow high school classmates. And instead of the “Brewed by…†we put “Hand picked by Miss and Mr. Lovebirdâ€. We also changed the “Guinness†to “Groomsman†and added each of their individual names. Of course the groom wanted to play around with his own label and to indicate the best man, we changed the “Original†to “Premium.â€

We then put the image on a USB and headed to Staples to buy labels and have them printed in color. We found Avery #5264 to be the perfect fit. Then we went to the Waldbaumâ€s and picked up a six pack of Guinness Extra Stout.

Later on that night, he had the guys over his apartment and nonchalantly handed out the beer. It didnâ€t take long for them to catch on. The rest is for the history books.

Has anyone done something like this before? Iâ€m interested to know what creative ways others have used to ask people to be in their wedding party.

Those are so awesome! Great job!

We are having cupcakes instead of cake at the wedding, so we are going to get a cupcake for each person (the same kind as the wedding cupcakes) in the wedding party and give it to them in a little box with a card that I am making. Still working on ideas for the cards, but I am thinking cards that look like little Tux jackets for the guys and little dresses in my colors for the girls. I better get on this since we are all getting together after New Years and we want to ask them then! I'll post pics after I get it set up.

I think this is a very unique and great idea for groomsman! Especially since most people only think about doing something like this for bridesmaids. I love it!!! Thanks for sharing.
