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.

@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.

@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.

Have fun!

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!)
