I’d tell her, but that’s me coming from the angle that I’d detest that too, and I’d want someone to warn me. If I was Jill I would walk out the moment I twigged what it was.

I would warn her if nothing else. That all sounds horrible to me too and something I’d hate as well. At least she’ll have a heads up and can tell her MOH no.

If you tie someone to a chair, against her will, isn’t that against the law?

That whole scenario would be friendship ending, with the MOH, to me.

aventurin :  Omg, I would leave if I got tied to a chair with strippers. That sounds like a nightmare. I’m not sure perhaps give her a heads up about the strippers.

I see nothing wrong with telling her, especially since she told her MOH everything she doesn’t want , and MOH did it anyways.  Who does that?  It’s probably MOH’s style, and she doesn’t get that other people wouldn’t like it.

Why didn’t the FI say something? That bothers me more than the rediculous MOH

I would call her and say you don’t want to spoil the surprise but you’re worried she won’t enjoy it and is there anything she’d hate and want warning about. This then starts the conversation and she can lead it in regards to how much she finds out.

i would have been fuming with my now husband and my bridesmaids who were the closest girls to me!

 Well…at least Jill has time to find a new MOH. Id definitely tell, no matter how I knew her. Also, if it were me I’d really be reconsidering marrying a guy that knew and didn’t do anything to stop it. Let’s face it, if he really wanted to keep her from experiencing that he could.

aventurin :  I hate those things as well. How inconsiderate of the MOH but unfortunately it seem (from what I saw and heard) the best man and the MOH often organize the bachelor/bachelorette to what they themselves want to do. In my opinion, it is a selfish act. One of the groom that I was working for told me he told his best man he didn’t want strippers or anything like that, he is a sport guy and he wanted to play golf or fishing or something with his best mates. His best man wanted to have a stripper party, the whole thing so he organize the later.

If I was in your position I will give her a head up and warn her so she can decide for herself if she will goes with it or not. If I was her, I would walk out as soon as I understood what will happen and it will probably be ending our friendship our at the very least strained.

So what happens? Did you told her? Did she walk out or got through this?

You did all you can and more. Telling her in advance is really not your role. Her FI should have stepped in. Just bring your own car to the event and be prepared to work her out if requested.

I would be upset. MOH sounds horrible. We probably wouldn’t be friends after this and DH would wish he had told me after the fact because he’d hear about it for a while. 

 

What is it with people doing things for themselves and not for the people they’re supposed to be for?
