Just wondering what your FI is doing for his bachelor party? FI’s brother is the best man, and last night their mom told me he is at a loss for what the do for the bachelor party. (Not a lot of our friends have been married, so he just doesn’t know what to do) A friend of FI’s got married 2 years ago, and they were going to go sky diving, but they got rained out so they had a cookout and went to a strip club. This is a pretty responsible bunch (I think! haha) so I am not setting any restrictions for what they do…I know they won’t go to Vegas or anything…just wondering what you FI did? Thanks!

Probably strippers and drinking.
I have no qualms with it. His best man ran it by me to ask if naked ladies were okay and I gave him the thumbs up. Just as long as he doesn’t get too wasted, I don’t care.

They are renting a stretch hummer limo & going on a bar crawl (probably strip clubs as well) but I told him I didn’t want to know any details

FI is going on a weekend cruise with his friends.. Another one of his friends is also newly engaged, so they’re celebrating together

they’re going to the casino for a night – my FI doesn’t care either way if they go or not. He just wants to sit around, drink a few beers and watch basketball.

FI and his friends are going to New Orleans for the weekend. I told him his only rule was don’t get arrested. I know they will have a great time.

- Wedding: May 2013 - Walt Disney World
I don’t think FI will have a bachelor party. He won’t be able to come into town for the wedding until 5 days prior and none of his GMs live in town (so they will probably be flying in/driving 1-2 days before the wedding). I’m sad for him because my bachelorette party will be the Saturday before the wedding (most of my BMs live in town).

Oddly enough, I’m kind of helping with the planning of the bachelor party. My FI is not from the US so all of his closest friends (especially the ones who would be more interested in bachelor party shenangians) will not be in the states for the wedding. His best friend is a girl and doesn’t live in the same state but I’ve given her some ideas for things to do in the area when she gets here for the wedding. I think my dad and his best friend are planning something for him too.
I wish he could have more of the “wild and crazy” bachelor party experience but his best friend is married and kind of religiously conservative and I know that my dad wouldn’t take things too far with the man who’s marrying his daughter lol
But I think he’s going to go to dinner and maybe late night bowling at a more mature place with music and a bar.
FI and I aren’t really into the stripper thing. He gets weird about strange women touching him lol but it’s something I’d like to do with him in the future (go to a strip club). I think he would be cool with that.

His friends want to do the crazy drinking/strippers borderline hangover kind of party. I told him as long as he shows up sober and put together for the wedding and there is no inappropriate touching, have fun.

My FI just had his this weekend. His buddy (not best man or even a groomsman) did an AMAZING job of planning it! He had so much fun!
They started the day by playing shinny (street hockey) at my FI’s work in the parking lot. They played for 3 hours and there were about 20 guys there including our 10 year old nephew (who said me to later that night that he heard a lot of “f-bombs” that day). They had a blast
They all went home and showered and then went out for supper at my FI’s favourite restaraunt and then walked to a pub that is close by.
A few of his buddies called/texted yesterday to say how much fun they had!

my DH didn’t have one. he wasn’t really interested in having one (he’s not big on clubs/dancing, etc). he and his friends were going to go skiing at lake tahoe (we got married in the winter) but it was a really dry year and there wasn’t any snow other than what the resorts were making. they ended up going a few months after the weddding.

He already had his because he has friends in Med School that couldn’t do it later. They went to their old college town and drank and went to a basketball game. There are no good stip clubs (or really any strip clubs) in the area so they didn’t do that, though I didn’t care if they did since I’m probably going to hit up a few for my Bach. They had an awesome time and got some good bonding in.

Yepp, no idea what they’ll do, nor do I care much. I trust FI and I trust his bestie (to an extent) my only rules are: nothing illegal, no sexual stuff (as in nothing a stripper wouldn’t do), and I really don’t want pictures put on social networking sites. Oh, and please don’t share the gritty details. You had fun? That’s great, Babe. I will be reciprocating.

Thanks for all the responses! I don’t think they’ll organize something with a limo, but maybe I could just tell FBIL to just meet at some bars and head to a strip club or something…they could even do some fishing during the day or something

My hubby and his boys went golfing first, then to the shooting range to shoot some guns, then for a nice dinner and drinks.
