Une Questione...

Tizzy and Funko are getting married in a month (give or take). I know that will be a shock to Drekkus, but that's beside the point...

Both have already had their respective bucks night/hen's night. Any particular reason they were held so lone before the wedding? In Australia, there's no tradition per-se, but it's usually one week, maybe two before the wedding. Sometimes the night before if they're feeling particularly daring. A month (or about 6-7 weeks roughly in Funko's case) seems a very large gap...

Ah, fair enough. What's considered "normal," out of curiosity?

I would say within two weeks is normal.

I wanted my Mum to be able to come to my hen night. She normally works Saturdays and is only allowed to take a certain (small) number of Saturdays off in a year. So I picked a Saturday she didn't have to work.

Same as there. If people are going to Europe or whatever maybe a month before.

My only restriction was a 48 hour lockout before the wedding itself.

A week or two seems normal. Mine was three days before, just because that was what fit everyone's schedule.

It's been 10 years next month, and I still haven't laid eyes on the pictures from that night.

A month is probably good. That way you'll know for sure if the hooker gave you an STD

Pffft, so there's an extra "e" on the end. I only ever did French for about 3 months, was spelling it as it sounds.
