What about a sports game? Does he like baseball or anything like that they could go to? Or maybe an experience like paintball, or hunting, or hiking?

I’m assuming he doens’t want to do anything that is “typical vagas”…

I’ve no idea what to suggest, but a couple of comments/questions:

* If it becomes a single night instead of camping, would more guys be available?

* Are there guys he can invite who aren’t in the bridal party? (For instance, do your bridesmaids have partners who will be stuck home alone and know your fiance?).

So I’d look at some sort of single night (or single afternoon) activity, depending something those two guys like (your fiance and the remaining groomsman), put the word out, and see if it gets more guys willing to come.

Poker night at someone’s house? Paintball? Microbrewery/distillery tour? Boat on the lake? Batting cages? Driving range? Shooting range?

My guy is going out to Vegas with some friends for his bachelor party in a few weeks- have them meet up? ha 🙂 Although my guy and his friends are more of the strip club type so I guess that wouldn’t be best. And that sucks. We have a lame groomsman (thankfully only one, but when you’re only have three the one makes a big difference). It really sucks, especially since our one is the guy that FI and I are both the closest to and thought would be the most excited for us.

Ugh, that totally sucks. I’d look to also inviting pple outside the wedding party at this point since the groomsmen are being lame. Is there another weekend for camping that would be better? Can they just camp out in the backyard of somebody’s house? Maybe a BBQ at home for the guys?

Are the neighbors super sensitive or are the guys just that rowdy? Maybe forewarn the neighbors that you will be having a party on X weekend and that if they have any issues w/ noise (although you don’t anticipate being so loud) that they can call u directly at a specific # instead of calling the cops or something. Maybe have it during teh day that way nobody is getting woken up next door? You could also just order pizzas and have paper plates, cups, etc. Minimal cleaning.

Are your neighbours really sensitive? Do you know them? Our neighbours now are awesome about parties bc we both have a policy that we do nothing when the other gets loud, but we have had problems in the past….I found that letting them know ahead of time can sometimes go a long way, and ending things/moving inside at a reasonable hour should cover you.
