    Ok my issue here would be that he’s drinking and partying the night before. The last thing you want is a hungover, or even worse, still drunk groom. That’s like Hangover 2 style!

    I’d have no problem with them going 2 or 3 nights before, but not THE night before.

    In my opinion, this endeavor carries far too much risk and not nearly enough benefit. I say NO GO to that plan.

    There’s nothing unsafe about going on a speed boat. I would be more concerned about him going out drinking the night before the wedding, however, I never have or will tell my Fiance what he can and can’t do.

    Yeah this is a definite no for me. For one like you said, it’s just the two of them which won’t include any of the other’s that have come all that way to be there for you. Two, alone, in a foreign country, traveling by boat at night? Getting shitfaced most likely? NO THANKS

    I would never say my fiance couldn’t go somewhere, but I would definitely be pissed if it meant that he missed anything wedding realted or was hungover for the wedding because of this. Make your concerns known, but he’s a grown man so hopefully he knows better than to show up at the alter puking.

    I’m conflicted, I don’t think night-before bachelor/ette parties are a good idea because when Darling Husband drinks he’s out the entire next day so I think it’s a good idea to keep an eye on him, plus no one wants a nautical DUI the night before their wedding.

    BUT It’s his bachelor party so I think he should do as he wants, not have to have family around and *cringe* I’m not a fan of co-ed parties.

    Who brought this idea up?  Your Fiance or the groomsmen?

    I wouldn’t want him boating at night in a strange place, but the real concern for me is the seasickness. I would totally ask him to reconsider

    Darling Husband and his groomsmen went out racing dune buggies for his bachelor party.  The last time my brother did that, he ended up with a broken collar bone.  But honestly, it didn’t bother me that Darling Husband wanted to do that because I wanted him to have a good time with his friends (and it would be ridiculous for me to go out and do what I want and then try to put restrictions on what he wants to do – I’m not his mom).  I trust Darling Husband, he’s responsible, and he came back all in one piece.  He didn’t even get any broken bones, so that was a bonus!

    I say let your Fiance have his fun.

    Taking a boat in the dark in a foreign country while drinking? And then going to a club in a foreign country? The night before getting married? No way. It sounds like he hasn’t really thought it out to me. Call me a party pooper if you want to, but nothing about that sounds like a smart idea.
