@thisorderistall:  You are completely NOT being unreasonable. I’d be ticked off too.

@thisorderistall:  That’s ridiculous, but I could totally see myself having this kind of situation, haha. He should do it during the week or two weekends before. What’s wrong with during the week? Isn’t being hungover one day at work better than being hungover at your wedding?

Congrats for putting your foot down on this one! I hope he doesn’t choose to not attend your sister’s graduation. That would be a tough one to explain to the family!

@Daisy_Mae:  I disagree. Unless there is some very specific reason why he can’t do it two weeks beforehand or during the week, then I think he should attend the graduation of his future SIL.

I think its really fair. He should be happy that you’re so outwardly cool with him having strippers and going out for a crazy night. I know a group of guys that went to Vegas for a bachelor party and it was like a month before the wedding. Who cares? I wouldn’t want a hungover groom.

My Fiance is doing his bachelor party 3 weeks beforehand. I think two weeks should be perfectly fine! Fiance wasnt concerned about when it was, as long as he was able to have a great time with his friends!

Yeah… it sucks though when you’re so short on options; I’m sure he’s not choosing that night just to spite you.  I think Fiance and I pretty much will end up not having bachelor/bachelorette parties because we (and the other invitees) won’t be in town together other than the weekend of the wedding.

ETA: I’m confused why it’s lame to have it two weeks before the wedding.  Some people have them earlier than that.

And no, he definitely shouldn’t skip the graduation just for that, when there are other options.

Put your foot down! I would be BEYOND furious if Fiance or the groomsmen were hungover the day of the wedding after I spent >12 months planning every detail because they “didn’t want to have it another night.” I think it’s disrespectful. It’s a WEDDING! Take it seriously!

That’s ridiculous my bil just had his bachelor party is costa rica a month before the wedding. There’s no way he’d be all bright & shining for the wedding if he was partying all night before the wedding. There’s no way fi’s going out the night before the wedding.
