My cousin and I are doing a joint bachelorette party in Cancun in July. I was just talking to her about it and she told me that both of our *moms* are planning to come, and her 15 year old sister. We’re not just going down there to lay on the beach. We’re going out at night too. I have a really good relationship with my mom but her being at my bachelorette party seems really akward. Plus, her 15 year old sister looks young. There’s NO WAY she could go out with us, what is she going to do at night? Is this really weird or am I making a big deal out of nothing?
There are definitely way more things that I would like to spend a thousand dollars on rather than a bachelorette party that sucks.

That is not a bachelorette party, to me. That is a “Girls’ Trip.”

Ditto what Lulusmom said. But you kind of need to make it clear that this is a *bachelorette* party and if they come, they aren’t welcome out with the party girls at night (I mean I can’t see anyone thinking they’re going to bring 15 year old girl to a..bar? club? I mean, that doesn’t make any sense, lol.) It might get a little touchy, and I wouldn’t just say “not welcome” but you need to make it pretty clear what your intentions with this trip are.

I am pretty bummed but my cousin invited them thinking no one would come, so I can’t really uninvited them I don’t think. Lame.

I can definitely see why that is bothering you. I am sort of in a similar predicament, minus the children. FCIL and her Darling Husband refuse to go out anywhere without each other, which is pure ridiculous to me, so THEY have decided that OUR bachelor/ette parties are going to be one, big group outing with everyone present. FCIL said it’ll be Future Father-In-Law and Future Mother-In-Law with us, among others (probably FMIL’s two friends). Wtf?! I’m not gonna let loose in front of FMIL’s friends!
Don’t get me wrong, I’m not wild, at all. I have two drinks and I’m falling over. But, I’m not gonna wanna get silly drunk in front of them. I really wanted a girls night to have girly fun. Maybe my sister and I might still do something like that, but I know that FCIL and Future Sister-In-Law are not going to participate because their SOs can’t come. Pretty lame =/
I am sure that your little cousin and your mom won’t wanna go out partying at night. Are they staying in separate hotel rooms? Just explain that you guys will be going out and partying at night as a bachelorette thing.
