@stinebean:  I think that sounds nice. When he picked his groomsmen, he probably knew this would be an issue. I doubt he’ll be upset that more people can’t come, as long as they will be at the wedding

@stinebean:  I know how you feel because I am in a bit of the same situation.  My fiance doesnt have very many friends.  His best man is his brother who is becoming a christian brother (probably not the best person to plan his bachelor party plus he lives 13 hours away).  I know my fiance is low key and says he doesnt mind but he was upset that no one is doing anything for him.  SOOOO…i asked my brother to do it.  They are just going to go to a Cubs game (with some of the other groomsmen and some of my male family members). BTW – I am the one coordinating the ticket buying lol

My DH had the same issue when we got married.  I talked to him about it, and was going to try to work something out, but honestly, I cared more than he did.  Everyone was just so busy and lived so far away, they couldn’t make a weekend work out.  He ended up having all of his groomsmen spend the night in our suite the night before the wedding, and he was perfectly happy with that.

I think you should bring it up to your brothers or stepdad and see if they can come up with something for him…so it will be ‘their idea’ instead of yours…I know that if my FI did something like that for me, and I found out, I would be grateful, but I would also be a little embarrassed that nobody wanted to do anything for me on their own…

But he knows his friends, so it’s possible that he’s not expecting anything, so he won’t be too disappointed if it never comes together. Maybe you can throw him a private party…if you know what I mean….haha!

FI just told me they cancelled the hotel for his bachelor party – I think I was way more bummed than he was (I planned an awesome spa day for myself while he was going to be gone!, but mostly I just really wanted him to have a fun party because he deserves it).  I told him I’d take him to the strip club for his “bachelor party” but he declined and told me he didn’t want to go to a strip club! I’m hoping when everyone’s in town the night before the wedding, he’ll be able to spend some time with his guy friends for a modified party.

@stinebean:  I would ask your FI what he wants before planning anything. If he would like to have a bachelor type party, I would get his brothers (if he has any) or some of his friends who are invited to the wedding to get involved in planning an improptu bachelor party for him (since he is so busy!). I am sure he would enjoy it and like PP said he is probably aware that some of his friends can’t make it. 🙂
