We are having our bachelor/ bachelorette party in Vegas this weekend ant itactually was my fh best man/ brothers idea.. I’m glad that mostly everyome we invited are able to go but then again we live 4 1/2 so it’s not so far.. If he wants to get that vaca feel, how about getting a hotel room somewhere close to where there are attractions in your city..or he can plan a night out with the guys.

@hartmamp:  well boo hoo for him. Vegas is rather lavish for a bachelor party. I don’t blame his groomsmen for being hesitant. Let him whine it out and pretend to listen. If he wants to go to Vegas he can throw himself a bachelor party!

@hartmamp:  I’m 100% with you. If you’re all rolling in dough and don’t have many pressing work/family commitments, COOL. Otherwise, it is a LOT of money and time to spend on a party, especially in addition to all the other wedding costs.

I agree that a lot of bachelor parties have turned in to a big cost of money AND time.  My husband went to Vegas for his, but only with two buddies that he does an annual “mancation” with somewhere anyway, so they just went to Vegas this time.  But in general, I hate the pressure and expectation to go overboard for wedding festivities.

BOTH of our wedding parties cancelled our respective bachelor/bachelorette parties less than a week out! And we were having local nights out!

So part of me says your Fiance should chill out and be happy that his friends want to throw him one at all!

But the other part says your Fiance is being a Groomzilla, and you should enjoy the hilarity!

my Fiance has some high rolling friends where they try to outdo each other.  iceland for one camping in california then to vegas for another.  my Fiance couldn’t afford to go to either one.

for his bachelor party, they are renting a cabin for the weekend and doing whatever boys do…

not including food, i think it is going to cost under $40 a person for 2 nights.

So many of my Facebook friends are having/did have their bachelor/bachelorette parties in Vegas (we live in the East Coast so its not a super accessible city). Personally, I think that is a lot of money to spend on a bachelor/bachelorette party, not to mention a lot of money to expect your bridal party to spend. I’d keep my money and put it toward our honeymoon.

@ajillity81:  i love that idea. i’ve always wanted to rent a cabin with us and the bridal party and swim, chill at the beach, bbq and hottub for a night or two so everyone can get to know each other and relax. then it’s basically byob and no one needs to stress about cash. 

pitching a fit cause his friends can’t go to vegas is a crappy move – i hope he’s not making his friends feel bad about it!

Would he accept Atlantic City as a compromise. Still gets gambling and nightlife, but no plane tickets to buy.

Sheesh, I am of your mindset as well.  I think a night out is okay but anything above and beyond is extravegant.  I would never expect someone to take me to Vegas, lol.  I had a friend, emphasis on HAD, that expected everyone to rent a vacation house in OBX.  Yeah, that didn’t happen.  And yeah, we’re not friends for that and several other wedding related reasons + other shiz but that’s beyond the point.  Try and get him to see that his friends feel like they’re being taken for granted =/ and that their pockets don’t stretch that far.
