Men, Dresses, and Men in Dresses

This one is for all the fellas getting married out in blogland. We’ll let the video speak for itself:

The guys over at the Man Registry spend all day and night fighting for your liberation. They strive to find products and advice that will make the sales person at Bed, Bath, & Beyond blush.  So put down the registry gun before you scan one more matching tea cozy set. Now head over to The Man Registry and behold all the products that Al Bundy would want you to have. And while you’re there tell the Man Registry guys to lay off the dresses.

Here are some of our Man picks from their arsenal that might come in handy on a bachelor party:

The Tuxedo Shirt – We feel every man should wear one of these once in their lives.

Toro 51599 12 Amps Ultra 225 Electric Leaf Blower/Vac – Because you could do  - this –  with it.

Louisville Slugger – Because the only good defense is a good offense

Enjoy,

James

Vendor Love – The Man Registry

This week for our Vendor Love segment,  we chatted with Chris from The Man Registry .  For all those grooms or best men out there if you haven’t heard of The Man Registry, you’ve missed the boat.   Their website features a fantastic wedding gift registry tailored toward MEN ranging from electronics, barbecue grills, outdoor gear and items from favorite sports teams – why should it all be about the kitchen.  In addition to the wedding registry, the website offers a wealth of information, how-to articles and resources designed to help guide the groom through every step of the engagement, wedding and honeymoon planning process.  Don’t feel left out grooms, The Man Registry is here to help you.

Our interview with Chris at The Man Registry went a little something like this:

What’s your favorite product on your site?

It has to be the RC Cooler. We’ve carried this for a few months and I just recently broke down and bought one for myself.  It comes in very handy for football season. If there’s a good game on, I don’t have time to be getting up off the couch and walking to the kitchen to get a beer. I’d rather let the cooler do the work!

What FireFly package would you pick for your bachelor party?

I’m going to go with a bachelor party double header. First up is beer tasting. I’m a sucker for micro breweries and trying new beer. After that, we’re heading to the ice rink for bumper cars on ice. I had no idea something this awesome existed.

Name 3 famous people you’d invite on your bachelor party?

  1. Hugh Hefner – I don’t think I need to provide a reason why.
  2. Kiefer Sutherland – To keep the party safe from terrorists.
  3. The actor that plays the Dos Equis “Most Interesting Man in the World” – Of course, he has to be in character for the entire party.

What’s your most outrageous wedding memory?

A few years back, I was a groomsman in the wedding of a good friend. After the ceremony, the wedding party and their dates took a trolley from the church to the reception. This was a 45 minute drive giving us ample time to start the party onboard. And what a party we had. In fact, we had so much fun that three members of the wedding party (including the best man) didn’t even make it to the reception. The groom had to ask a cousin to step in a give a speech!

Get involved in the wedding planning process, guys. Statistically speaking, it’s the only wedding that 50% of you will ever have.

For tips and info on how the groom can get more involved in wedding planning, visit The Man Registry’s Groom 101 section.

It’s the morning after the bachelor party, there is a tiger in your room, you can’t find the groom, what do you do?!!

Nice try, but I’m not falling for this trick question.  On the morning after the bachelor party, the groom and I are still down in the casino playing blackjack. We haven’t made it back to the room yet.

Here are a few other items you can find on The Man Registry:

For the artistic-minded – 25oz. Chalkboard Beer Mug http://www.themanregistry.com/ProductDetails.aspx?PID=2267

Not only does this support healthy liver function, but it’s great for displaying trash talk, nicknames, and inside jokes. E.g. Groom, Brian, Douche bag, Filler up. You get the picture. $19.99

For the guy who got cut from the sophomore baseball team, but still dreams of making the pros – Louisville Slugger Personalized Baseball Bat – http://www.themanregistry.com/ProductDetails.aspx?PID=806

Realistically, after Booze and Cleavage, comes sports. We realize the importance of getting off your ass one night a week for the meanest game of softball you’ve ever played. With that in mind, we couldn’t pass up the personalized Louisville Slugger; Popeye. $52.99

For the alcoholic – Personalized Cell Phone Flask http://www.themanregistry.com/ProductDetails.aspx?PID=2563

“Excuse me, I need to take this call.”  Finally a phone that works! It’s small enough to fit in any pocket and comes with a genuine leather carrying case with belt loop. $24.95
