Can you maybe start by sending him a list of people that your Fiance wants invited?

Thats a good idea Sunshine23…now I see the wedding is not until August, are the guys planning to do it soon or travel to someplace like Vegas? If not trust me, the guys will wait about a month or two before to plan….it’s nothing like the Bridesmaid or Best Man that starts many months in advance!

My advice, from experience in another wedding.  DO NOT get involved.  Let your Fiance say something if he wants to.  My SIL got involved in planning my bro’s bachelor party, and it turned out bad.  All the guys got mad that she was even asking about it and told her she could plan it herself.  Come to find out the guys already had a place and the keg reserved etc.  So.. you may not know what’s going on, but let the guys do their thing.  They’ve got PLENTY of time to get something together.

Your wedding is still 6 months away… guys don’t plan that far in advance.  In my opinion, there is no good way for YOU to ask.  Groomsmen will plan it.  If his wife just left, give him a couple months to deal with his circumstances, and if Fiance hasn’t heard anything 2 months before the wedding, have him ask the Groomsmen if he needs an invite list or something casual like that.

How close are you to the GM?  I would personally email/text/facebook him and would say something like….

“I was thinking about booking you guys a hotel room for you night out…wondering what the plans were going to be.”  Even if you weren’t planning to book them a hotel room, it might open up the conversation so he can let you in on what he’s planned so far, if anything.

Ok, no need to yell (all caps)…lol. It seems you’ve answered your own question…have fiance contact GMs and explain the deal with the Out of Town guests and that they are grownups with lives and jobs and responsibilities  and cannot pick up with no notice…etc

Considering the guy’s wife just left, and in your words “The best man planning it is not an option because FI specifically didn’t want him to plan it because he’s a total douche,” and “The others are either idiots or Out of Town.” sounds like Fiance should put something together himself.  just saying. the first guys got his own issues going on right now, and personally, i think it’s insensitive to expect him to forget all that to plan something 6 months in advance. again, just my opinion.
