About Us

What is The Man Registry? is an online resource for grooms and is the internet leader in wedding tips, advice and gifts for men. The website features a specialized wedding gift registry featuring hundreds of wedding gifts tailored toward grooms, including electronics, barbecue grills and accessories, bar supplies, tools and outdoors gear and items from favorite sports teams. In addition to the wedding registry, the website also offers a wealth of information, how-to articles and resources designed to help successfully guide the millions of grooms who get married each year through every step of the engagement, wedding and honeymoon planning processes. In recent years, we have also expanded to offer bridesmaid gifts and wedding day accessories.

Our Story

Two brothers and their brother-in-law founded in 2008 when they noticed that many of their close friends and family were getting married, but too often were registered for wedding gifts that were strictly geared toward the kitchen and bedroom. Where were the wedding gifts that the groom could get excited about? It was clear that creating a wedding registry tailored to grooms was necessary. Thus, was conceived and built as the place where grooms and brides could register for wedding gifts they could put to use in the backyard, garage, or basement bar.

Thousands of Satisfied Grooms and Groomsmen

Since 2008, we’ve been the go-to site for personalized, unique groomsmen gifts and wedding tips for men. We’re also proud to be the original groom’s gift registry.

I reached out to The Man Registry on a Saturday, just 7 days before my wedding, asking for help with my groomsmen gifts. I heard back within an hour and was able to get 8 personalized coolers in just 3 days. Ordering was easy and the quality was top notch. Would highly recommend The Man Registry!

The Man Registry is phenomenal. The customer service is exceptional - seriously. You send an e-mail and a person (a friendly one at that) actually responds within an hour. Also, gift options are diverse and plentiful so you'll be able to find what works best for you.
