The Bachelor Party.....

Recommended Posts

I hope I'm posting this in the right place....it's kind of an etiqette question I think.

 

Small bit of background:

 

FI and I met online and he moved accross the country to live with me. He only knew a couple of guys out here when he moved and his job is remote so he doesn't have any co-workers in the office that he has developed relationships with. He's ok with all of that and his couple friends here are good buddies, they go out at least once a week. But I don't think anyone has thought of having any kind of bachelor party for him. This is his second marriage and the first bachelor party consisted of stealing a street sign and a move or two. (He was pretty young...)

 

So I called one of his local friends and asked if he would put something together for FI a couple weeks before the wedding for a bachelor party. His buddies are BROKE so I asked him to give me an estimate of what he'd need and I'd fund it. (Within reason of course). FI's friend was fine with that and is going to talk it over with the other guys and get back to me.

 

I just want FI to have the opportunity to go through that ritual, I think he'd love it and I'm getting to do so many things centered around me that it feels a little off balance. I know he'd get a huge kick out of a getting wasted in a limo and hitting the strip club.

 

The question:

 

I'm hoping I'm not stepping out of line though, does it seem innappropriate for me to initiate something like that?

I don't think you are stepping over the line at all! Guys aren't really planners and don't think of things like we do. So I am sure his guy friends just thought they would take him out on one of their weekly nights out to celebrate. I think it is super sweet of you to organize it for him and to fund it!

I dont think so! Joe's best man didn't really realize what his duties were and i brought it up to him. They are doing something in Mexico the night before...... good thing our wedding is at 4!

 

Don't worry about it! I'm sure he'll love a night out on the town!

I think that is SO awesome of you and his friends probably think you are the coolest fiancee ever! Hopefully you won't have to fund the whole thing but seriously, that is so nice of you...he's a lucky guy!

No I think its a great idea Vikki! Especially because men are SO bad at planning things most of the time. All my FI's friends have bachelor parties that he finds out about the weekend before! Good Luck I know your FI will really appreciate it!

I think this is a great idea, if you're willing to fund it then what's wrong with that? I think it's really sweet of you that you want to make sure that he has a bach party so he can have that experience. :)

I think it's a great idea. DH's friends totally dropped the ball on his and I could tell he was hurt.

    • I'm so sorry to hear this  Did you have a signed contract with him? What did he or the contract say the turn around time be? If it is way past the deadline, you have made several documented attempts to contact him, and he has broken your contract and failed to produce what has been promised, you could resort to writing an online review of your experience -- often times, that motivates vendors who've dropped the ball to rectify the situation because it affects other potential clients. 
    • STAY AWAY FROM CARIBBEAN EMOTIONS PHOTOGRAPHY!!!! Michael Weiler is a SCAMMER he took our money and disappeared!! we hired him as our photographer for our wedding back in November, he gave us a run around for the first week or 2 saying our pictures are almost ready and then disappeared. we have been sending him emails, texts and phone calls for the past 4 months and he is now where to be found. I made a fake account to email him and he answered right away as he is only interested in taking peoples money and not give anything in return.
    • For weddings you should definitely use a travel agent as there are promotions and amenities with a group block that you will not get by booking individually like comped rooms, upgrades, spa treatments, etc.
    • Congratulations and welcome to the forum! There are lots of great resort options in Punta Cana and we have stayed at or toured many of them.  Are you looking for a family friendly resort or adults only?  What you interested in with nature and the ceremony? All of the resorts will have different wedding locations and there are also a variety of off resort wedding venues in Punta Cana. Please feel free to email us at info@wrighttravelagency.com if you'd like us to send resort info and check group rates. Thanks! Patty
    • Hello Everyone!  I am currently in the initial stages of planning and I am starting to look at resorts in Dominican Republic. I am thinking of having my wedding in October 2020.  I have been looking at resorts in Punta Cana, but I also want to look at other options/areas as well. The groom and I enjoy nature and we would like to incorporate that into our wedding in some way. We may also have a guest list between 50-80 people. Since we live in the US, I wanted to find a location that is accessible from major airports and is cost efficient for our guest as well as us. Can anyone share what locations they have searched or been to other than Punta Cana? Also I am okay to receive feedback on some Punta Cana locations.
