Let your FI deal with his Dad. He is the one who chose his Dad for his Best Man. He likely knew his Dad’s capabilities when he chose him, so I’m not sure why any of this is a surprise to him.

The only thing I might do in your shoes is speak to one of the groomsmen and ask if he is able to work with the Best Man to make sure things get done.

Make a list for your fiance of everything that “he” needs to handle and let him do it.  If he wants to assign it to his best man, so be it.  My husband met his best man at the tux shop because they tried everything on when they picked it up.

@sal5011:  Time for a groomsman to step up and assist, not take over, but assist FFIL, with the planning of the bachelor party and picking up of the tuxes. You and FI might also find a short template of a toast online to help FFIL start forming his words on the toast. Have someone with good writing skills assist him with something short so he is comfortable saying a couple nice sentences and it is done.
