Guy ONLY Outing??
Posted 19 July 2010 - 07:38 PM
I want our wedding trip to be everthing both of us ever wanted not only what I want.
We are only going to be in Mexico with our friends and family for 3 days and I feel we shouldn't try and leave anyone out.
I mentioned that if he want to fly home (NY) for a weekend before the wedding to hang out with all of the guys or if he wants to have a bachelor party....to do that.... but I don't feel as if an 'all guy' outing should be something that is part of our wedding weekend. I want him to have fun and go to strip clubs and party but not while we have asked everyone to come visit us for our wedding.
I feel as if I am being selfish, because I don't think I would really enjoy just hanging out with all of the girls. (not a girly spa kind of girl...I would rather be playing golf and drinking tequila) But I know how guys need their 'guy time'
My FI is so great...because he said thats fine baby! But now I feel as if I am being stupid.
I love all of my friends and family and want to just hang with everyone.

My dad and uncle are renting a boat to go fishing/drinking from 7am-1pm and inviting all the boys in the group. So while the boys are out on the ocean doing whatever they do, us girls can enjoy a lazy, slow breakfast, and drinking mimosas by the pool. By the time they get back, we'll be ready for lunch and maybe they can grill up some of the fish the boys caught! Us girls might even do some souvenir shopping that morning since the men don't usually want to be involved in that aspect anyways. Then we have the rest of the trip together as a group.
The only thing that sucks is my fiance won't get to meet with the wedding coordinator since he'll be on a boat, but it's not like he really cares about the small wedding details. It's kind of bothersome because I've already had to plan the entire wedding and now I'm gonna be in charge of the final meeting as well...but in all honestly, it's probably a lot easier being the sole person in charge. He only tells me when he doesn't like something. Anyways, maybe a half day outing can be the boys outing (like ziplining or fishing trip...).

I will be in Mexico for a full week (so it obviously a different situation) and our plans are roughly as follows:
day 1: bride and groom arrive
day 2: guests arrive, welcome cocktail hour and then guys night out (not a repeat of the bachelor party, but more innocent bartime) and girls night out
day 3: day before the ceremony (excursion for whole group if we can afford to spring for it)
day 4: wedding day - guys play a round of golf while ladies get nails, hair, makup done for a start time between 4 to 5 pm.
