I hear you. One of FI’s groomsmen dropped out for the most ridiculous reason. Now, to make matters worse I don’t think they’re planning a bach party for him either.  THey keep mentioning it but there’s no action.  It’s complicated since they all live in different parts of the country and are married with children and pregnant wives, but I still feel sad for him, especially since I’ve had 2 showers – including a surprise one! and will be having a bachelorette.  Even if we turn my bach into a dual party, I don’t think any of his groomsmen would show up. So sad. Breaks my heart.  I might just tell my BMs to scrap the bach party.

I know how you feel.. DH’s best friend was a HORRIBLE groomsmen. It really hurt DH’s feelings and affected how he felt about the friendship. He wasn’t asked to do anything for the wedding, but he at the last minute decided to skip out on the one pre-wedding party we had, about a half hour before he called Darling Husband after saying he was going. We got stuck paying for his plate too.. $50. Ugh. 

I hope they pull themselves together & plan something nice for your FI!

@Utopia4us:  Word. My fiance is probably going to have to throw his own bachelor party 🙁

I’m in the same boat as you… worried that Fiance isn’t going to have the bachelor party he deserves.

A bunch of his friends are planning a Vegas bachelor party for one of his college buddies during spring break in March, even though they’re getting married after us. His bachelor party is supposed to be the weekend after that, and I’m worried no one will go to his because of that, but its the only weekend he can do it. Most of his friends live in a different state and will be flying out to Vegas the weekend before, and I’m really worried he’s going to get shafted because I don’t think it’s realistic to expect his friends to travel to Vegas one weekend, and then to NY the following.

I’m just upset that his friends didn’t think to include him in the Vegas bachelor party. And I really don’t want him to get screwed out of a real bachelor party. Boys are stupid.
