What Should Grooms Have on Their Wedding Registry

Chris Easter

As grooms become more and more involved in wedding planning and the popularity of man showers and couples showers continue to grow – now’s the perfect time for grooms to bring in some serious loot by creating their man registries.

Although traditional wedding registries are great for items like bath towels, dishes and bedding, there are certain items that guys should handle — or at least have a hand in — selecting. After all, the groom is half of the wedding equation. Plus, your guy friends will want to give you something they know you’ll enjoy.

TMR Recommendation: These are just suggestions to help get the ball rolling. Each couple is different and enjoys different things. We recommend first taking an inventory of what’s most important to you and your bride, and then registering accordingly. Remember, getting married is a joint venture. The groom’s involvement in the wedding gift registry is essential. Don’t let your gifts be an afterthought!
