Founder Jonathan Gouveia started Groomsday with a sole purpose in mind – to help make the groom’s life a little easier. On weddings, most of the attention is on the bride and too few give notice to the groom and his groomsmen. This website caters to the men of the wedding, providing everything from unique gifts to men’s accessories for the wedding day. Their office is located in North Reading, MA.
They specialize in gifts and items for men, so there are no products available for the bride or the bridesmaids. The products are well categorized on the website, making it very easy to find the item you are looking for. They have wedding party gifts for the best man, ring bearers, groomsmen, dads and also bachelor party shirts. Some popular unique gift items include the beer belt, golfer’s beer tap, outlaw shaving brush and personalized lighters. Even if there are only a few customizable items displayed on their site, the personalized products are truly unique and have great quality too.
When it comes to pricing, you’ll be glad to know that Groomsday offers competitive prices. There are several items that cost just around $20 (shirts, cufflinks, keychains, hankies and more). Outdoorsy items and sports items are usually priced higher at around $40 – $80.
They have a very simple personalization process and there are no extra charges for this service. You would not have to worry about dealing with complicated tools and design studios that are difficult to navigate. However, customization is very limited. You will only be able to incorporate monograms, initials or a couple of text lines on the item. This is, of course, also depending on the particular product you choose.
Most of the products, including the personalized items, ship in around 2 to 3 business days. This is pretty fast compared to other websites who offer the same services. Orders over $99 are shipped for free. The company has a 100% Satisfaction Guarantee policy, which states that returns can be made within 15 days of receipt.
Groomsday is a great specialty site that caters to the men of the wedding. They offer unique and customizable items but their selection is pretty limited compared to others. However, we do like that they have a fast turnaround time and budget-friendly items.
Complete disappointment. I ordered $100s in monogrammed gifts for groomsmen and family more than a month in advance of my wedding. Received immediate confirmation that the order was processed on my credit card. Followed up two weeks later because I still hadn’t received a status update. They finally responded roughly a week before the wedding saying they couldn’t complete the order. Left me high and dry without an explanation or an apology. Shows a real lack of respect for the customer. Can’t justify ever doing business with them in the future.
