When it came time to picking his 5th groomsmen, he settled on his bestie from college, we will call him spike. Now Spike had a breaf romance with my college roomie/bridesmaid but ended pretty badly. Not to mention last time I was out at a bar with him, he spilled his drink all over me, called me a b word, and made me cry. But he was my FI really good friend so I agreed.
Now I’m paranoid that Mr. Spike is going to act inappropriate at the wedding. Anyone had similar experiences. Let me here how your wedding turned out?

I’m not a big fan of 2 of FI’s groomsmen, but they have been his good friends for a while- so not much I can do! FI acts much different around them then when he is around me. I reminded him that our wedding is OUR wedding so he better be his usual self, than how he is with his friends- even though they will be around.

Bestman I can’t stand but it is his brother. Still a few months away but my mom has promised to run interference for me with his whole family.

There were 2 groomsmen that I didn’t really know because they live in different areas of the country, but we had no issues. They were all great guys.

Yep – DH has a friend I call Douchebag Doug. They have been bestie’s since before me and I really don’t see it dying out ever. I can’t understand why they are friends (they are night and day) but whatever. He was in our wedding, he made inappropriate comments (like always) while we did pictures, but thats about it. He was a complete douchbag like usual but he didn’t ruin anything unless you count him trying to hook up with my cousin…he’s still in our lives and probably always will be but its not that big of a deal. You can’t love everyone.

my FI asked one of his female friends to be a grooms-person (we are having mixed gender bridal parties anyway) and didn’t tell me before. i wouldnt never had said no, but she is not exactly my favorite person. she’s always been nice to me, but is totally that girl who cries every time she gets drunk. drama drama drama. completely not the kind of person i would hang with.
our wedding is in 14 months, so i can’t tell you how it turned out… time will tell 🙂
