by Azure

About The Man Registry My dad is always telling me stories about how all of his friends held their bachelor parties on the night before the wedding. He called it a “tradition” and “how things used to be done.” I, for one, call BS on this. I think that stuff only happens in TV and movies.

The Man Registry: Wedding Day Golf Ideas

by Azure
