@smiles4jo:  I don’t know that it’s a “guy thing”, but Fiance and I have had the same lack of enthusiasm from both sides. I do feel bad for him, especially when his Bridesmaid or Best Man is his best friend from childhood, who wouldn’t write a toast, when he couldn’t have hookers (yes you read correctly) at the bachelor party just decided not to plan one, and when Fiance suggested they all get together during the day before the wedding, he basically told Fiance to just have everything ready for him when he shows up (wtf??).

Some Groomsmen are kind of slackers… and some really just are clueless. My Fiance was just Bridesmaid or Best Man for the first time and I had to like bug him and be like – hey dude, you need to be organizing something for your friend. And he was like “huh? won’t he just tell me if he needs something?” 

Also I think some may be more hesitant if you have kids in the picture, and your Fiance isn’t much of a partier, they may not know what they should be doing other than trying to reenact The Hangover…so they may need him to lead with some suggestions. 

Maybe you can reach out to his BM? or have your Maid/Matron of Honor talk to the BM?
