Uhh Need to Vent, My FI hasn't asked his GM to be in the wedding!

Recommended Posts

So I am so frustrated! My FI has not asked his brother and Best Bud to be in our wedding yet to be his groomsmen! I have asked him a few times and he says he is waiting for the right moment and wants it to be special! Well we are 4 months out!

 

ok, so this is his 2nd marriage and they were in his first wedding, but come on! I asked him today and he said, I will, I will! Well, I am just annoyed and need to vent. He thinks they already know, and maybe they do, but it still annoys me that it is not finalized! They are already booked for our MX wedding and all, but I am just thinking this is so weird and I don't get it!

 

It just makes me feel awkward that his GM might not know they are in the wedding, what if they think, "hmm, maybe we are not." It just seems silly he is waiting for the right moment and I found the right moment over 3 months ago!

Oh! I totally know what you mean. I couldn't wait to tell my BMs and MOHs, but John is all "Yeah, I think I mentioned it to them." I think it has to do with the way guys (or at least my guy) typically plan their time together. "Hey man, wanna hang out tonight? I'm getting married. Maybe we can grab a beer afterwards."

You know guys are crazy, their bnding and stuff is totally different fom our, so he's probably just going to throw it out there at some point. Try not to stress yourself, atleast you know they are going so they just need to get attire and fall in line!

Been there! FI just asked his BM last week. He always said oh i will, i will.... he never would. Finally while his cousing (BM) was over one night I said oh Joe have you asked him yet in front of him and he said oh no, will you be my BM. I know he wanted special, but it just wasnt happening so now we're good!

LOL, I feel for you!! FI just asked his last week...wedding is the beginning of June! Quite a ways back a friend of his brothers was asking him if he was BM and his brother responded "I don't even know if I'm in the wedding!" I felt so bad but this was something I was leaving entirely up to FI! Don't get me wrong, I got on his case...but it still took months. Good luck! Hopefully he asks them soon!!

I don't know why guys do this?!?!

 

FI lagged on asking my last two cousins to be his groomsmen -- why? I have no idea. I even told him just to shoot em an email, but his said he wanted to ask them in person, mind you one of them lives in NY, so of course I was like...um ok. huh.gif Well about 2 weeks ago he finally asked them after my many requests, thankfully both cousins were honored he asked.

 

But like I said, guys are weirdos, lol. What can I say, they're all the same ~ strange in their ways, but we love them regardless rolleyes.gif

it took my FI about 3 months after asking to actually get a yes out of his third GM...I kept asking, "has he given you an answer" and kept getting the "I forgot to ask again" response...this particular friend even spent a week at our house over Christmas and not once did it come up.

The kicker was when he finally said yes, he asked my FI to be in his wedding as well! Men...

When my FI asked one of his friends to be a GM, he gave a non-committal answer like "A wedding in Mexico sounds like fun!" I'm thinking to myself "Is that a yes? Is that a maybe?" But, I think it's guyspeak for I'm too cool to actually say the word yes.

    • I have stayed at Dreams La Romana and Dreams Dominicus.  The two resorts are very different in style and decor. A few comparison points are below and fact sheets are attached for both.   Both resorts are approx 45 minutes from Punta Cana airport, close proximity to Saona Island, Catalina Island and Altos de Chavon. Top championship golf courses in the Caribbean are just minutes away including Teeth of the Dog, Dye Fore, The Links and La Estancia – all designed by world-famous Pete Dye. Restaurants are similar at both resorts.  Both offer the Explorers Club for Kids.  Dreams Dominicus  Brand new resort and in 2016 488 rooms (however additional construction was underway) More contemporary style & decor Good beach area Rooms were very nice Preferred Club located in main lobby and adjacent to main pool & beach front Food was good Center plaza area with nighttime entertainment Main lobby is small, but outdoor bar off lobby is nice Dreams La Romana Originally built in 2003 & opened as Dreams La Romana in 2008 756 rooms Recently renovated and new preferred club adults only lounge & pool added  Rooms are more traditional Caribbean decor Grounds are very lush and tropical Good beach area food was good    Dreams Dominicus fact sheet.pdf Dreams La Romana fact sheet.pdf
    • My sister has done it but with the destination wedding, only super close family members and friends came since it was expensive and farther. It was great though.
