Myself and my Fiancé are an older couple, our best man is our nephew who is 28, he is arranging my fiance’s Stag do. It is everything my fiancé wouldn’t want, at 53 he doesn’t like daytime drinking, bars and clubs, but that’s what has been planned. Don’t get me wrong he likes a drink and a laugh but he’s not a lad anymore. Do I let him have a stag do he won’t enjoy, or step in and come across as a bridezilla? I just want my fiancé to enjoy his stag do in the run up to our wedding!
You need to say something x
Hi I agree with Louise the stag should be more in keeping with what your Fiance's tastes :)
I would let him carry on and go; he will no his own limit of what he would won’t to drink and do. Stags are about surprise and taking you out of your comfort zone. I’m not a day time drinking and my hen is lots of. Drinking.
I would talk to the best man & just gently remind him it’s not what your other half would want. I was late twenties when I married but without doubt did not want what is the ‘norm’ on a hen weekend and I made it very clear that if anything remotely tacky or cheesy ensued I’d pack my bag & go home. They respected it and was glad I said something....it just wasn’t me and I would’ve hated it
I agree, you need to speak to him and just let him know what your H2B likes and dislikes. You know your partner better than anyone else so he’ll understand :)
I would say something to the best man x
Cant he speak to his nephew? Would be better coming from him (or does he not know?)
I would encourage your Hubby to talk to him, its his stag do after all.
I think he needs a gentle reminder that the stag isn’t for him but for your fiancé
If it’s something your husband doesn’t want let him step up and say no he doesn’t want that
Can't he speak for himself??
Just be honest with him. At the end of the day your going to be the one who knows him best. Maybe suggest to him to have a meal at a nice pub. Then if people want to have a drink they can. I'm sure he would prefer to know because he may feel that he's let him down if he doesn't enjoy it
Ban the word “Bridezilla” from your vocabulary and do what you think is right.
You step in ..... you want your fiancé to look back at his stag do with good memories
He may enjoy reliving his youth for one night. Lol
Can't your fiance talk to his nephew and sort his own stag do?
No if you think its too much for him then step in .. if he's not going to enjoy it why should you spend money on it?
I bridezillered my little heart out regatding my hubbys stag do. Needs to be about them not other people. Get your bridezilla om to protect your mans special day x
I don't thi k it's down to you...its down to the groom to state what he wants etch. My man has put his foot down with his stag do...and I have done the same with my hen do!
Suggest instead a trip across to Ireland staying @ a spa hotel & walking mountains with a jacuzzi afterwards for the aches & pains .... & relax
Talk.to.yoyr nephew. Explain.what you have said here. That your H2B isnt a young man.any more and he would rather have a slightly less ladish do
I think you should get your HTB to talk to your nephew / best man. You really shouldn’t have anything to do with his stag night. Is he having a say in your hen night? I’m not saying this in a bad way. It’s his last night as a single man and it’s his choice to do as he wants as it is yours for your night. I hope you both have a lovely time whatever you do
My h2b is also 53 and wants to go to Spain for a weekend, to go on motorbike course, speak to your nephew and tell him to have a conversation with your h2b to figure out what he actually wants. You might be surprised but make it clear to your nephew that your h2b is not the same age and might not like the same things..
Your not being a bridezilla, your just being normal hun it's ok to talk to you nephew and your h2b xxx good luck
It’s your fiancé that needs to say something not you.
I know our best man wouldn’t listen anyway but that’s part of the fun. Your h2b might enjoy one last night letting loose
The stag do is about your husband to be so he should have something that he will enjoy and remember, not what other people prefer, have a word and maybe give best man some better options of what he might like?
