My fiance wants to take him and his groomsmen out to a local “six flags” the morning of the wedding while me and the girls are getting our hair and makeup done….
He cant take them the day before because its an out of town wedding and most of the attendants will not be arriving until a few hours before our rehersal. He cant take them after the rehearsal because its the dinner. And we are left to the day of. He makes a valid point that he has from early that morning til 1 or 2, since we are having a 6:00 wedding. I told him, I’d rather him not, but I’d love some feedback. What did your groomsmen the morning/afternoon of your wedding?

Is this a theme park? Only while it sounds like a great plan in theory, there’s a bit of me that would also be a bit reluctant for it to happen on the morning of your wedding. I can’t explain why, properly, but I’d just feel slightly uneasy about the idea!
My DH and I spent the night before our wedding together and had breakfast at our hotel before I went off for my hair appointment. He did go out with the chaps for what my son assures me is the “family tradition” of a pint in the pub before our ceremony but this was a 5 minute walk away. So there was no danger of anyone being miles from the venue and perhaps caught up in traffic or some other drama.

annthewhoaman: My groomsmen and husband slept in, and had a late brunch together, just chilled. Yeah, I can’t imagine them making it to Six Flags and back in time to get ready – I mean, what if any number of things happen? Oh man I would be so worried! Yeah, I agree with you – I would certainly rather they not.

It might not even open that early, and it might be too exhausting especially if your rehearsal dinner goes late. My finance is probably taking his groomsmen out for breakfast

Ours are going for breakfast together and then the bunch of them are golfing at our venue. It’s got a championship golf course that none of them have ever played at even though it’s in our hometown lol.
A theme park would mke me super nervous. I live by a Six Flags and have gone a couple times. You get stuck in lines for roller coasters and really, how many can they actually ride in that amount of time? I’ve been there all day and only gotten to ride 3. Most of my time was spent in lines. Now, if they have a Flash Pass, that’s a different story lol. And standing in lines all day in the hot sun does not seem like fun right before a wedding.

My husband and his groomsmen played golf at the venue. Did he say what time it opens? I have been to 3 Six Flags parks and none of them opened earlier than 10:00. It really doesnt sound like it would be worth it to go for that short of a time.

- Wedding: October 2014 - Church
annthewhoaman: Agree with Steampunkbride: … I have a feeling that they may lose track of time and well … I don’t know … It just doesn’t seem like the right timing. Why don’t they do this for a bachelor?
The guys are planning on sleeping in, going for brunch, picking up flowers, going for a hot shave, having getting ready photos done. That should take up most of the time before they need to get to Church for around 2:30 …

Everyone lived locally, so three of the four of us, and my dad, met at my barber for shaves, then we all had breakfast, and finished getting dressed, at my hotel. That was about all there was time for, as our wedding was at 1:30 pm.

My boys will be going hunting first thing in the morning (around 5am.) and a quick motorbike/quad ride in a state forest which is just opposite our venue. I was a little nervous about that at first, but they assured me they’d wear all their armour and ride carefully, they won’t be trying to break any records. They will then come back and probably have a nap then get up and get ready. I don’t mind at all, I will probably be running around the venue like a mad woman doing all the finishing touches before I get ready, and I do NOT want to see him during that time lol. This is their idea of relaxing though, lots of the time will be spent just sitting and looking around the bush. I think something so thrilling is a bit strange to want to do on the day of…
