The Plunge - a site for grooms!

So much of the wedding market is geared to the bride it's refreshing to see something for the men. is a site where men can get real advice about weddings - whether they're contemplating engagement, committed to taking "the plunge," or even just a groomsman. It gives readers an unconventional, unflinchingly honest perspective on the entire wedding process, which can be quite amusing.

The site dispenses tips and advice on buying the ring and getting engaged to wedding planning, bachelor parties and booking the honeymoon. Additional features include an interactive forum for guys to swap advice, an "Ask The Expert" feature where users can mail their question to the editors, weekly polls and a monthly Plunge newsletter.

Forward this to the man in your life and help him feel empowered about the big day. However, I'm not responsible for any smart remarks he gets from his time spent there...

I got lost on the site for hours! Here are a couple of the lists that caught my eye:

  • Thank Yous
