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.

    • Hi all! I know this is an old thread... but just in case there are other destination wedding brides out there with the same question, I thought I would answer! My guy and I live in Texas and just got our marriage license (yay!). We are getting married in Playa del Carmen, Mexico. The Dallas County clerk informed us that we can get our marriage license in Texas, bring it and a Texas-registered officiant to Mexico, have the ceremony in Mexico, then bring the marriage license back to Texas to file and it will be LEGAL in the US.  In  other words, we can legally get married in Mexico using our Texas marriage license and officiant (who is a family friend), then file the paperwork when we get home. Where it says 'county in which ceremony was performed' on the license, we just put in Playa del Carmen, Mexico and bam! Married :) I do not know if this is true for other states, but it is CONFIRMED for Texas! I suggest asking the clerk when you register for your marriage license. I am overjoyed that we can have a US-legal marriage in Mexico so our wedding date on our license will be the actual day! NO blood tests, or getting married before or after the trip required!  
    • Every Bride spends a lot of time researching and worrying about her perfect wedding dress. While many Indian brides choose the traditional red colour for their bridal gown, a few of them find some different colours to wear on their special day. Here is a description of how to choose an Indian wedding dress that suits your skin tone. 1) Fair complexion: You can choose any shade of blue or bright shades of pink and red. In the shades of blue- select scuba blue or royal blue. Among other colours this season, you can pick up your dress in tangerine.   2) Wheatish complexion Just select those colours which bring out the warmth in your complexion. Some of the best options for you are tangy orange, saffron yellow, vibrant shades of red, mint green and hot pink.   3) Dusky complexion: If you have an olive skin tone, then you can pull off any rich and dark colour quite well. So, the colours like classic blue, marsala, burnt orange and brick red are just perfect for you. Also the metallic silver, gold and bronze will even flatter your face pretty well
    • I will be using the hPage Website Builder to create a free website for our wedding. I am planning to post wedding updates, wedding photos, wedding reminders, and wedding articles regarding our upcoming marriage there. For RSVP, I am using Facebook events since almost all we invited have facebook and it would be easier to get their "yes" or "no" confirmation there. In case anyone is interested as well here's their site: hPage Website Builder - https://www.hpage.com
    • Minimalist wedding bands look so classy and timeless regardless of the venue.
    • It's hard to estimate. Some receptions don't need much decorating because it's already beautiful. Some receptions need lots of decorating. Some receptions also come with extra decorating equipment already.
