And when you think of it, the bachelor usually goes along and is right there along with the bride in making all those decisions that are necessary for planning a wedding.

This is his one big day, and for brides, keep this one thought in your mind at all times, you are the one that he chose to share the rest of his life with.

Maybe your bachelor doesn’t want to have a traditional bachelor party with a lot of his guy friends and some female entertainment that he’s not really comfortable being around. That’s okay too. Nobody should be forced to have a bachelor party. Perhaps your bachelor would rather spend an evening alone with his bride-to-be at an elegant hotel or in another city.

It’s not a day to binge on one bad behavior and then never experience happiness again.
