Hey ladies, you may have already seen, but a new wedding website launched for men two weeks ago — http://www.theplunge.com. One of our groomsmen actually wrote a big chunk of the content. The tone might not be for everyone, but it’s an interesting idea and actually provides a lot of very useful information for the grooms (the guest list spreadsheet is awesome).
I’d be curious to hear what y’all think!

I didn’t know it was a new website! FI & I actually just found it 2 days ago and thought it had been around for a while and that we just hadn’t seen it.
But honestly, that site is amazing! We were dying laughing reading through stuff. Pretty much everything is completely true (the thing about wedding porn fits me to a T), but I love how its all talked about with so much humor! So many things describe converstaions we had perfectly, and although a grooms lack of involvement has been frustrating, it was great to laugh about everything.
I sent the link to an engaged guy in our party because I thought he’d find it funny.
I can’t say enough good things – especially bout how funny the site is, but its actual helpful too! FI is a funny guy so it’s been easy to get him involved and he has been reading the site on his own!
It’s nice to have something poking fun at sites like the Knot, becuase its easy to get caught up in the whirlwind of it all. I think it helps the groom to look at us crazy brides with humor, rather than frustration. And I also think The Plunge really helps the grooms make sense of everything too.

I saw that! I sent it to my FI. It’s written in a whimsical amusing manner so I think he might browse it.
Overall my FI has a "tell me what to do and i’ll do it" philosophy with our wedding. He knows that deep down I just want him to agree with me anyways =]
