In the UK it’s pretty normal to invite people to the ceremony/dinner and then invite extra people to the evening dancing/buffet. Due to space and finances, I am planning on inviting my team at work to the evening part of the wedding (I will also be inviting partners).
Should I also invite the girls to my Bachelorette party? Or is that strange because they are only coming to the evening?

Will there be any costs associated with the bachelorette party? There’s a difference if everyone’s chipping in a few pounds for drinks versus a weekend away.

@rebwana: It will cost each person about $80 USD. This includes a 3 course meal, wine and a DJ

@linnylou_88: That doesn’t sound like too much money, considering the exchange rate. I think if you are open to turn downs, inviting is okay. I doubt I would go to a bachelorett party for a co-worker, but that is more based on my office composition.

@Misswhowedding: I work in a team of 5 people. My manager is going to my wedding (he knows FI’s cousin) but I simply cannot afford and do not have the space to invite the other 3 (and their plus ones) to the whole day. I guess inviting is a nice gesture – they don’t have to RSVP yes

@linnylou_88: I invited some friends and all my work colleages to my big Hen Party but only to the evening reception at the wedding. They were not in the least offended. They got to go to two great parties! My Hen cost them each about £20 I think, that was for food, dancing and drinks.
I also had a day long Hen with closest friends and family which probably cost them around £80 each? All of those people were invited to both and most were a part of the wedding.
I think a big old girls night out is fine. I think if you were having an american style shower where they were expected to pay up and gift you and then were not invited all day….that may cause some issues.

Invite them! They can always say “no,” but as long as they’re coming to the wedding anyway, it’s nice to extend an invite (and have more people to party with!)
