Five (Cool) Reasons a Groom Should Be Involved in a Registry with MyRegistry.com
Here are five reasons a groom should be involved in registering with MyRegistry.com:
1. GET GIFTS HE NEEDS AND WANTS
The obvious reason a groom should participate in the registry process is to make sure he receives items that are meant for him. Most newly engaged men hear the word “register”
2. “DO IT TOGETHER” ACTIVITIES WITH CASH GIFT FUND
MyRegistry.com offers a patent pending Cash Gift Fund that allows members to tastefully register for cash gifts, rather than physical items. Users can customize their Cash Gift Fund with activities they can do together such as “cooking class fund” or “skydiving fund.” So many couples already have at least one (if not two) of everything to set up house—so more towels, sheets, pots and pans would be pointless. MyRegistry.com has helped changed the stigma attached to asking for cash.
3. HOME IMPROVEMENTS
Many couples purchase their homes prior to their wedding and frequent home improvement stores wishing for everyday household items to help them complete their dream house. Grooms usually have more of a grasp on items such as tools, electrical items and other supplies that are necessary to complete a renovation or improvement. With MyRegistry.com, they can choose items from home improvement megastores such as Home Depot or local mom and pop hardware stores.
4. CREATE HIS OWN “MAN CAVE”
Personal space in important for a marriage to survive. Man caves give guys the freedom to enjoy football or basketball games on TV in their self-created environments. MyRegistry.com will allow the groom to construct and design their space by asking for items such as recliners, sports paraphernalia, flat screen TV’s, poker tables and more from any store in the world.
5. “BRO” SHOWERS
One of the hottest trends in the wedding industry is the growing popularity of showers for the groom. A “bro” shower is an informal gathering of the groom’s friends in honor of the impending nuptials. This event often accompanies the bachelor party as a daytime event where gifts are exchanged and food and liquor are also served. Although these showers aren’t considered traditional, weddings are evolving and the groom is becoming more involved in the planning and festivities. “Bro showers” can have themes such as “backyard, lawn and garden” or “bar and grill,” where the groom can ask for related gifts.
