@awolfpaw:  Is there a way you could maybe only go to half of the bachelorette party?  Like only make clay pots or go to dinner?

I don’t understand how making clay pots then out to dinner takes all day even if it is 1.5 hours away.  What time does pot making begin?  

I’d also suggest doing 1/2 the batchelorette.

I understand wanting to see your mom, but you’re part of the wedding,  and I think it’s pretty crappy to cancel on your friend a week in advance when you have obviously had these plans in place for a while. Why can’t you see your mom sunday?

@awolfpaw:  Is your mother free Friday night? You could spend Friday night with her, skip the Friday night sleepover, leave for the bride’s suite early Saturday morning.

ETA: Or, why do you need to stay Saturday night? Don’t drink, and drive home after the reception. Then you see your mother Sunday morning.

@awolfpaw:  what about Thursday morning before you head out for the bachelorette party? You and your mom could have a breakfast date, then get your nails done (or whatever you guys like to do together). Make it fun!

I know your mom misses you, but it’s also rude to back out of the bachelorette party this late in the game.

@awolfpaw:  If she works 2-11 every day, won’t you see her Thursday morning? And if you drive home Saturday night, you could also see her Sunday morning. Is two mornings enough?

ETA: and Friday morning too.

Honestly? You made a commitment to be there for the bachelorette party, you should honor that. You need to leave at 1pm? I don’t understand why you can’t go out to breakfast and hang out until you need to leave at one…

Maybe see her Thursday morning and have breakfast with her.

I would see your mom Thursday morning and evening after the party, but I agree you should honor your commitment to go to the party. Your mom is an adult and should understand. That being said I disagree that it is ever a bridesmaid’s duty to help clean up so I would go home Saturday night and have Sunday am with your mom too.

@awolfpaw:  Family first. It’s not even a question for me.
