The groom-centric pros over at Staggered have declared 2011 to be the Year of the Groom.

  1. The big thing for me is that there are still elements of the groom's experience that don't make it special.

    We've had some *terrible* messages from grooms complaining about [LARGE FORMAL HIRE CHAIN] that basically have made them feel lousy.

    Contrast that with the bride's dress shopping - it's a day of consummate luxury and excitement. Now, we're not saying that we want the bride to lose that, but that from The Year of The Groom onwards we'd love it to be a special thing for both bride and groom.

    Is that so mad?
