LOCATED JUST NORTH OF AUSTIN IN ROUND ROCK, TEXAS, Groomsmen Central is on a mission to provide the best in unique customized gifts for your best man, groomsmen, and the rest of your wedding party — all at great prices and with fast turnaround time for those of you who might have waited until the last minute to do your wedding planning.
I'm Eric Montgomery, and along with our team of engravers, order fulfillers, and copywriters, I run Groomsmen Central on a day to day basis.
After graduating from the US Naval Academy in 2004, I served 7 years as a Marine Corps infantry officer before leaving active duty in 2011.
This company is the evolution of our original retail website at Bullets2Bandages which was started in San Diego by two Naval Academy classmates of mine back in 2011. I joined them during the summer of 2012 and have been with the company ever since.
After a few years of selling jewelry and accessories, most of which were made out of spent ammunition, we noticed that our biggest market was in selling personalized products to customers who were using them as groomsmen gifts and wedding favors.
Our bottle openers, shot glasses, keychains, and other barware continued to sell very well over the years, and our customer reviews reflect our obsession with quality products and customer service.
However, we eventually realized that our fairly narrow product line would limit our ability to market to the broadest possible wedding-related audience — it's just a simple fact that not every groom will want to give his wedding party products that are gun-related.
In late 2017 we quietly launched this website and began compiling useful content in the form of blog posts geared towards the things that grooms, best men, and groomsmen would need to know — and we started figuring out where we could source the kinds of products they'd be interested in buying.
Shortly after leaving San Diego and moving to Round Rock, TX in January of 2018, we went live with our first product lines which we'll continue to build on in the future.
While Bullets2Bandages is going to continue operating and carrying out its mission of supporting veteran charities, we anticipate that Groomsmen Central will soon become our primary focus as we gain traction in this market.
