British singer and presenter Charlotte Church has reportedly made her partner Gavin Henson cancel his bachelor party.
Charlotte is worried about the rugby player’s plans to fly out to Las Vegas with several of his pals ahead of their forthcoming wedding, and is insisting they throw a joint pre-martial party for their friends.
A source told the Daily Star newspaper: “He called up all his old pals and said he wanted to spend five days in Vegas drinking and partying. Gav wants it to be the party everyone remembers. All his friends are really up for it and his dad, Alan, is coming along too.
“Charlotte knows what Gav’s schoolmates are like and reckons things will get out of hand. She’s worried they’ll shave his eyebrows off or get him arrested for something silly like being naked in the street. Now she’s trying to talk Gav into having a joint do so she can keep her eye on him.”
The 24-year-old star and her 28-year-old fiancé – who have two children, Ruby, two, and 15-month-old Dexter - are reportedly hoping to tie the knot on Paradise Island in the Bahamas in the summer.
Making your man cancel his buck’s party seems like a pretty extreme measure but, as most women would know, there is a certain female fear which comes with traditional bachelor shenanigans.
How can you get a handle on your reservations and make sure you and your man get to the aisle without any drama?
Here are our top tips for handling his buck’s party with grace.
1. Organise something low-key to do the night of his party. Invite a few friends over for dinner or head to a great restaurant.
2. Don’t get drunk! Alcohol causes your emotions and imagination to run wild. Two things you don’t want to happen!
3. Trust him. Remember that your man would not be having a buck’s party if he didn’t want to get married.
4. Suggest he have his buck’s party a few weeks before the wedding so he is nice and fresh for the “big day”.
5. Don’t play tit-for-tat. Organising an OTT hen’s party to make him jealous will only fuel his fire.
6. Instead of blowing up spontaneously, talk to him about your concerns so he knows how you are feeling. Keep the conversation calm, honest and non-judgemental.
7. Focus on the wedding. Chances are you are worrying about nothing so keep your mind on your “big day” and you’ll be fine!
