About The Man Registry

Let’s face it men, when it comes to wedding planning, there are only so many things that can actually get you revved up. Chances are you could care less about the flower colors, bridesmaid dresses, or how many layers are on the wedding cake. But, my guess is that you might have a little something to say about the transportation on the big day. Cars, after all, are a boy’s best friend.

Arranging wedding day transportation is one of the groom’s biggest responsibilities in this whole wedding planning spectrum. This transportation includes getting from the church to the reception as well as getting from the reception to wherever you’re going afterwards. A lot of thought should go into this decision (if you’re nice, maybe ask the bride for some input as well).

Traditional and trending choices including renting a limo, classic car, trolley, or stretch SUV. You can expect to pay an hourly rate, gas charge, and a tip to reserve one of these beauties. We recommend booking approximately four months before the wedding. If you’re getting married in the spring/summer, your options can dwindle down quickly as many weddings are happening in that time-frame.

If you’re on a tight budget, you’ve got a few options: • If you’re lucky enough to have a friend or family member who owns a sports or classic car, borrowing a ride is by all means acceptable. • You can always ask the Best Man or Maid of Honor to volunteer to drive the couple off after the wedding. If they’re real friends, they’ll do it.

None of these choices appeal to you? Get creative grooms! A horse-drawn carriage is a unique concept that your bride-to-be is sure to love. Other choices include helicopters, airplanes, space shuttles, etc… Ok, but serious – get creative and leave a personal mark on your wedding day – it’s only going to happen once (for 50% of us).
