Want to take your wedding day look to the next level? Enter the Wonderbund, a reversible tuxedo cummerbund that’s “business” in the front and “party” in the back (just like the infamous mullet ‘do), for the groom and groomsmen. Perfect for the ceremony, one side of the Wonderbund is traditional black satin. When it’s time to cut a rug at the reception, it flips over to reveal a variety of fun patterns, such as a gold-encrusted “Champ” wrestling belt, American flags, mustaches, lobsters, sharks and more. Go ahead now, show off your wild side.

See What Happened on the Day the Bachelor Died

Friday, February 21st, 2014

Did you know that one of the earliest recorded bachelor party traditions is the groom-to-be being forced to dig his own “bachelor grave?” His friends and family would gather around to mourn his passing and copious amounts of alcohol would be consumed. Morbidness aside, that’s pretty damn cool. This rite of passage has unfortunately faded over time, but it could be heading for a revival. Case in point: Bobby from Kansas City recently sent us this video of his younger brother Collin’s bachelor party. In addition to the mock funeral, the weekend party also included guns, trampolines and a mechanical bull. The best part? Everything was captured on GoPro for your entertainment.


Thanks to Bobby for submitting this gem.
