You can’t get hitched without the Groom, so why not let him get involved?  After all, the wedding day is about the Bride and the Groom! Making the whole entire process more exciting for him could help lead to a more stress-free wedding planning experience. Allow him to add some components that he loves…maybe his favorite shoes, or personalizing the inside of his suite, or  even adding a special something- like a pocket square.


We came across this wonderful new site called The Man Registry! The founders of the Man Registry, Chris Easter & Bob Horner, created this online resource for grooms. TheManRegistry.com is the internet leader in grooms’ wedding tips and wedding advice for grooms. The website features a specialized wedding gift registry, which offers hundreds of wedding gifts tailored toward grooms, including: electronics, barbecue grills and accessories, bar supplies, tools, outdoors gear and items from their favorite sports teams.  The site has now evolved beyond a registry service, to offer advice to grooms on everything wedding-related, as well as guides to local wedding vendors and ideas for groomsmen gifts. “The market for brides in the wedding industry is huge, but there wasn’t really anything that was specifically for the groom, as we learned more about the industry, we saw there was definitely room for us to corner everything groom-related.” -Chris Easter
