If you're engaged, you're likely daunted by all the events you're expected to plan, like a bachelorette party, bridal shower, and engagement party—throw your fiancé's bachelor party into the mix, and it might be a bit too much. That's why our wedding etiquette experts are here to help you with any party-planning dilemma you may have.

Can I ask the best man to organize a bachelor party for my fiancé? Is that rude?

Rude? No way. In fact, your guy's best man would probably appreciate a little reminder, since it's likely that he just forgot. Simply drop a casual hint, like "John is really looking forward to the bachelor party; let me know what night it is so I don't make other plans for us." Then wait a couple of weeks. If he still doesn't take action, you'll have to be more direct and ask him to set up a day of golfing or an evening of lounging at a cigar bar.
