Ok, so we’ve talked before about the pathetic status of grooms at weddings. They are supposed to show up, shut up, and pay up, as far as I can tell. And most things on the internet written for (or even by) grooms reads like it’s written for barely literate frat boys* – people I don’t even want to have a drink with, let alone spend the rest of my life around. Because seriously, if your groom only cares about bachelor parties, lingerie, cigars, honeymoons, and drinking, you need to leave him by the side of the road. Now.
So into this black hole of groom nothingness, steps The Engaged Guy. He’s the blogger my fiancé would be, if my fiancé blogged about weddings (well, except for the skinny ties thing. David wants you to know that he holds no truck with skinny ties). He’s hilarious, he’s smart, his fiancé and wedding sound amazing, and he’s a professional writer. I know you’ve heard about this blog before, but I have been to his site, and there are almost no comments. So, you clever and funny Practical Wedding readers, hie yourself to The Engaged Guy, and pepper him with your comments. Perhaps we can peer-pressure him into posting more often? Peer pressure is awesome.
*I recently learned that the term “frat” is offensive to some people. If this is true for you, my apologies. Please substitute the term “fraternal brotherhood.”
