Tips or Trends Tuesday: Groom Blogs and Resources

Welcome to day two of Masculine Gender week! All this week I will have posts that are related to the masculine gender whether you consider yourself a “groom” or a “bride.” I’ll be using the words “groom” and “groomsman” to refer to those who identify with the masculine gender for convenience’s sake. Please know that I will be featuring ALL types of grooms no matter their sexual orientation and identity. If you are a reader of this blog, you will know that I believe that anyone who loves and wishes to make a formal commitment of that love are celebrated here.

On today’s Tips or Trends Tuesday, I am featuring blogs and resources for grooms. It’s great to see so many grooms becoming involved in the wedding process and the shift from the “bride’s day,” “my day,” “her day,” to “OUR day.” There are some really great grooms out there blogging about their experiences and sharing resources for grooms who want to get involved.

Let’s start with a few recommended blogs and sites:
General:
I Am Staggered
The Groom Says
The Plunge
The Groom Groove
The Man Registry
Groom’s Day
GLBT:
Prideful Engagements
Gay Weddings
So Your EnGAYged

Spa Finder for Men
Rental Attire:
Men’s Warehouse: Check out their free tux or suit program.
The Knot’s Suit/Tuxedo Rental Directory
Custom Made/Bespoke Attire:

Suitopia
Designer Suits/Tuxedos:

Suits for Butch/Trans/Androgyny:
Snagging the Perfect Suit for Your Wedding by S. Bear Bergman

Next, I want to introduce you to a great free e-magazine from I Am Staggered. “The Staggered Directory 2011,” is a comprehensive guide for grooms, groomsmen, and fathers designed to inform and encourage participation of the masculine gender in the wedding planning process. You’ll find everything from explanations of attendant roles, real grooms, gifts, and planning the honeymoon. If you read only one publication, I would highly recommend “The Staggered Directory 2011.”

I leave you today with a few boards for you showcasing some really great attire (including vintage and bespoke designs via Etsy). I hope you enjoy.
