Do I Have to Plan My Fiance's Bachelor Party?
I've got an awkward situation... My fiance is in Australia, the wedding is in Portland, and I'm up here waiting for him. FH has three groomsmen: A brother coming from Australia, the Best Man from Canada, and my brother in California. We're going to have a bachelor/bachelorette party on the same night (different locations of course), two days before the wedding. It's the earliest day all our friends will be there, except the Best Man who can't arrive until the day of the wedding.
Well, my ladies have got my end of things all under control. I know it's a bit squished, having the bachelorette party, then the rehearsal dinner, then the wedding, but we are a laid back group, and I'm not worried. I'm also putting shots of vodka in my morning coffee to help build tolerance for that weekend.
However, I'm out of sorts as to what to do for my man... He shouldn't have to plan his own bachelor party, but I sure as hell don't want to plan it either, that's just weird. But his BM can't make it, and the other two grooms know nothing about the area. Should I tell FH to work it out himself when he gets here (five weeks before the wedding), or make a list of awesome places in town and hand it to the FBIL and wish him luck?
Your wisdom is much appreciated.
Stay the fuck out of it. The boys will figure it out.
