The Man Registry: The Bachelor Party- Avoid Bars that HATE Bachelor Parties

by Azure

About The Man Registry If I could do my bachelor party all over again, I would only change one thing (well, two if you count calling a bartender a Cincinnati Bengal as a bad thing). My friends and I didn’t properly prepare for the fact that some bars and clubs refuse to let bachelor parties (aka groups of drunk men) in the door. This is a shame, but apparently the old adage applies... a small percentage of people ruin it for everyone else. As future Best Men and grooms, I’m sure...

The Man Registry: Wedding Day Golf Ideas

by Azure

About The Man Registry It’s one of the biggest wedding clichés out there (especially on the groom’s side of the wedding)…golf on the wedding day. As the groom, you’ve probably been asked if you’re getting up early and teeing it up on the morning of the wedding.

The sad truth for...

Bubbly Bride: Pool at Your Wedding

by Azure

About Bubbly Bride Before you start pulling out your swimsuit and sunscreen, I am not talking about swimming pools.

I am not suggesting to put this in the middle of your beautifully decorated room, but find a back corner where it won't be in the way for...

by Azure

When I think of my best friends and sisters, several hilarious, (semi)embarrassing stories come to mind… stories that always bring a smile to my face, followed by a good, hearty laugh. And I know that my besties have some ammunition stored up on me, as I’ve had my fair share of not so proud moments. I came across this “Dirty Laundry” guest book kit by New York based design consultancy Mélangerie Inc, and thought it was the perfect way to dish the dirt, in a decorative,...
