Okay, so … if the Bridesmaid or Best Man would agree (as in ACTUALLY follow through on) not having strippers, would you want to go back to having separate bachelor/ette parties? Not fully knowing the situation, I think having separate girls’ night and boys’ nights with your respective friends can be awesome! But, only if you trust that the Bridesmaid or Best Man isn’t going to completely disregard both of your wishes and hire strippers.

He says he doesn’t want to step on toes, but probably he feels like you and the Maid/Matron of Honor are sort of stepping on his toes — as in, you’re crashing his party because you want to keep an eye on the guys. Even if that isn’t really your goal, he may still think it is, which is why he basically told you to back off.

I would say, if at all possible, go back to having separate parties but have your Fi make it very clear that strippers are not to be part of the equation. I think you’re fully within your rights to not want some sweaty stripper dangling her boobs in your Fi’s face as part of the celebration of your upcoming marriage 🙂

The best man doesn’t want to feel like he’s being babysat, but given that he hasn’t respected your wishes … well, he brought it on himself!
