Now that’s worth drinking to!
So the wedding venue is booked and the months of planning the big day has come down to this one moment. But what about your groomsmen? An integral part of proceedings, finding a suitable groomsmen gift for whiskey enthusiasts can be just as intricate as the table plan. Oh, the decisions.
After all, your friends have been there through thick and thin. Heck, they may have even dragged you up (probably off the floor after a few too many beverages) on more than a few occasions.
Toasting the happy couple tends to symbolize one of the key elements of the event. As Websters defines it, a toast is a “call to a gathering of people to raise their glasses and drink together in honor of a person.” Who needs a Manhattan when you can go straight to scotch? Whiskey is without question one of the perfect party starters when it comes to raising the roof.
