Best part about working at The Man Registry?

I love providing our customers with world class customer service. There’s a huge difference between saying you’re driven by customers — and practicing it. At The Man Registry, it drives what I do every day.

Favorite gift on The Man Registry?

As a bourbon lover, I can’t recommend our mini bourbon aging barrel enough. It’s a unique, functional gift that allows you to age your own custom blend of bourbon. The barrels make great groomsmen gifts because it’s something that not a lot of guys already have.

Top piece of advice for grooms?

Work as a team with your bride-to-be. Scheduling weekly or bi-weekly wedding planning date nights are a great way to kick back and relieve stress while still making some progress.
