Oh, this circle of friends isn’t about the obscene, gross, and expensive stuff (our most recent bachelor parties have consisted of a house rental and beer, not a strip club or strippers), but the tone of the best man suggested we’d be in bed at 10:00 that night. I’d post the entire email, but it’s about 3 pages long, and includes such important details as the rental house’s wifi password, a dinner and breakfast menu, and carpooling plans.which side are you on? Generally people should do something FUN but a lot of dudes think it’s an excuse to do obscene and gross things for an entire night, things that ultimately aren’t actually fun and cost a shit ton of money
Re: a bachelor party this summer
Email from best man of groom, organizing said party:
[Groom] certainly isn’t expecting any craziness or debauchery, so best to leave that for the wedding and after party.
Immediate responses from our circle of friends, removing best man:
I get this is going to be a quiet night — but am I reading that correctly? Is the bachelor party going to be more tame than the wedding reception?
Better bring some nuns for this one #YOLO
A fiver goes to the guy who shows up in a monocle and, anytime someone takes a drink, “oh no. Mother would not approve.” All in an elderly British woman’s accent.
What kind of debauchery is [groom] expecting at the wedding?
Leave it for the after party? this guy just invite us into [groom’s] honeymoon suite? I mean I’ve snuggled up with him before, but never quite like this…
In another email, he warned us not to tell [groom] of any of the “classified” details of the bachelor party. Like what? The fact that we’re having steaks for dinner? (with sides, likely consisting of salads, grilled vegetables, chips, etc)?
That thing when you get a Facebook invite to a birthday party and it mentions their age and you nearly fall over because you thought they were your age, not 15 years older than you.
