One of the biggest worries of most brides is their partner’s upcoming bucks night. What could he be up to? What kind of party did his friends plan for that night? Such questions can easily make you anxious.
But what you may not know is that you have nothing to worry about. It could be just a case of you overthinking or your thoughts being ruled by your preconceived notions. Ease your mind with this bride-friendly guide.
Trust Your Groom and His Companions
The last thing you want to do is to build trust-related issues in your relationship just as you are about to say “I do.” Put your mind to rest and trust your groom that he will behave on his own bucks night.
You also have to put a little faith on his mates and what they will be doing. Should they want to visit strip clubs among other adult places, don’t throw a fit and forbid them. Let your groom experience the traditional ritual on his “last night of freedom.”
Don’t Plan the Event for Him
This is a big no-no in a stag do. In fact, brides should be off limits in this event. Delegate the party planning to his best man. There are far important things to manage than his buck’s party. Don’t make him feel like you are micromanaging his actions or you are less trusting because you can’t let him prepare his own event.
Set Boundaries and Limitations
The best thing for you to do is to set boundaries ahead. Tell him, in the nicest way, the things you are comfortable with and which ones you are not okay with. Avoid appearing authoritative. This way, your groom and his friends would know which is acceptable to do and which isn’t. The limitations you have set will serve as a mutual agreement between you and your partner.
Have Your Own Fun on the Day
Typically, bucks night are held the night before the wedding. Instead of spending your time worrying about what’s happening at your soon-to-be husband’s party, why don’t you enjoy your own time with your friends?
If you are also having your bridal shower on that night, focus on your event instead of counting the time. Don’t call him hour after hour as if you are monitoring his every move. Instead, share stories with your own friends, go over your wedding checklist for the last time, or take a well-deserved beauty rest.
A lot of things can happen in a stag party but it doesn’t mean you have to spend your time getting anxious on your partner’s special event. Keep this guide in mind for your peace of mind. Choose to trust, talk, and enjoy your respective last nights of freedom.
