Bachelorette/Bachelor Parties

Hi everyone,

So, I have my Bachelorette Party this weekend in AC - - nothing too crazy - - BUT my lovely fiance is going to Vegas for 5 days leaving next Thurs! It was not his idea to go to Vegas, of course it was his brother's plan.  Am I stupid for feeling a little upset about it? There is nothing I can do, and I am TRYING to just be "cool" about it but I let my mind wander, I mean...it's vegas.........help!

    My FI had his last weekend in NYC I am so glad it's over lol.  Mine is on June 2nd in NYC. 

    I don't blame you for being a little unsettled I would not be a fan of FI going to Vegas for 5 days for his bach party.  As long as you trust him I am sure you have nothing to worry about.

    Do you trust your FI? If so, then have no worries. No destination, even Vegas, is going to change the person that he is. Just relax and have fun at your b-party!

    So true - - I guess sometimes you just like to hear that from other peopel to get your brain in order.  I know and trust who he is, but I cannot say the same for his brother!

    Five days is a really long bachelor party! I would probably be a little unsettled by it, but you just have to trust your FI. There is a reason you are marrying him and he is marrying you. Keep yourself busy with wedding planning or fun stuff with your friends while he's gone. I'm sure it'll be fine and he'll be missing you by the second day!

    Yea, it is long.  He has been to Vegas before (prior to us dating) and he always said that Vegas for more than 3 days is TOO much...but he did not plan/pay for this trip.  His brother who never went to Vegas and never had a Bachelor party planned it out.

    I would trust your FI to do the right thing.  5 days is a long trip but 2 of them will probably be spent traveling.  Have fun at your b-party!

    Well, I guess it's a good thing you're not marrying his brother then.

    I agree 5 days is pretty long, but you're also going to AC. And the PP said that 2 of these 5 days will be spent traveling probably.

    As long as you trust your FI, everything will be okay!

    That's so true!! He would have preferred something "low key" by the beach but go figure...I am sure he will have fun but I am also sure that by day 3 they are going to be miserably hungover!

    FI is doing his in Vegas, too, which is funny because he doesn't want it there.  I trust FI, and his best man, but noone else that's planning on going.  And it sounds like the guest list is spiraling out of control, because all of his old work friends wanted to go when they heard about it.  FI's BM keeps trying to reassure me that it's not going to be bad, but who knows.  I guess I just don't understand why it's planned for Vegas when FI doesn't even want it to be there.

    Like everyone said just trust him and I am sure everything will be fine.  FI went to a bach party in Vegas two years ago and I believe he was gone for 5 days as well.  He said they went to one strip club and just played poker all weekend hahah they are boring!

    But now onto the fun stuff!!  Where are you going in AC? You should try to check out Revel .  I was gonna do AC for my bach party as well but I decided to just stay in Philly for cost savings (we are not having my bach party until June 23rd so peak season in AC)

    My bachelorette party is this weekend too! (; My FI was supposed to go to Vegas in June as well and I was not too thrilled about it either. I trust him but it still bothered me. I was secretly ecstatic when those plans fell through though lol Now they're just going to go deep sea fishing, race car driving, and out to a bar. So you're def. not stupid for being a little upset.

    My fiance leaves for Vegas this afternoon for his bach party. With 14 guys. I'm more worried about their chances of getting into a club with a slew of 14 dudes than I am worried about his behavior. . .  :) If you trust your fiance, it'll be fine. I totally feel you being uneasy about it though. It's just the stigma of Vegas. BUT: It's just a "guys" weekend. He won't do anything there that he wouldn't do anywhere else.

    I'm also going to Vegas for my bachelorette in June - we're only going for 3 days though.

    LADY you will LOVE 230 5th. I've been probably 4-5 times. Great views of the city, but it does get crowded and I'm kind of claustorphobic. You said you're getting bottle service though, right?

    Rachel, I live at 55th and Lex! We're closeby.

    That's so exciting! I love hearing about other July 14th brides. :) We're getting married in Philly because I'm from there and my mom is hosting. Otherwise we would have done NYC, I think. I can't believe my ticker says "1 month . . . " !

    I'm going to the city for one night in June for my b party and FI is headed to Cali for his bachelor party next week from Wed - Monday. It's annoying that he'll be gone for so long (missing his birthday and MDW!), but one of his GM lives out there and all of his friends wanted to go. It is what it is... I'm looking forward to having some time to myself! Have fun at yours this weekend and don't worry about your FI! I'm sure they will be fine :)
