my Fiance has not ever gone to a bachelor party. we live out of state from our friends/relatives of marrying age. most of our friends here are already married. i’m sure he’d love the opportunity though.

The trend for overly extravagant bachelor/bachelorette parties is getting out of control.

It can place friends and guests in a very awkward and uncomfortable position when brides/grooms or couples plan extravagant events that require travel,hotel rooms, meals, fees for activities, gifts etc.

These events also take people away from their own loved ones on their only days off.

Time to scale back, people!

We only have one other couple who is married besides us, and we both went to the bach parties the same night,and we ended up meeting up later in the night. We don’t have any friend who are currently on track to get married at this point, so thankfully we don’t have to deal with this right now.

Maybe you could suggest that he pick and choose which ones he goes to? Just because he’s invited, doesn’t mean he has to go to everyone, especially if money is an issue

@julies1949: I agree with this, I think it is getting ridiculous.  When is enough, enough? Seems like its way too easy to spend a grand on someones wedding/events/gifts!

He doesn’t HAVE to go if its a financial burden. My DHs friends usually do something in town the night before they leave so all the locals/people who cant afford to go out of town can celebrate with the bachelor.

@julies1949: Agreed!  My husband totally bought into that mentality which irked me.  It was easier for him to have his party in Vegas since most of his close friends reside out West these days but he exhibited some ridiculous “groomzilla” behavior in regards to his bachelor party and made it ridiculously expensive for those involved.  I know it was his party and all but it’s like he felt he had to live up to some dumb “Hangover” cliche.  Ugh.

Why is a regular night out just not enough anymore?

Just talk with him & let him know although you understand how much he cares about his friends he can’t attend every single one of them. Its just to much.
