He shouldn’t do it, but guys aren’t always to etiquette conscious so I think he can get away with it. Plus a bachelor party isn’t a gift giving occasion (unlike a bridal shower), so its really not much different from him inviting these guys out to party.

Besides, if they’re his casual friends, then he can deal with the fallout (if any) of deciding to just invite them to the bachelor party.

Somehow Bachelor parties operate on different rules. 

“Guys just wanna have fun” 🙂 and many would rather go to the bachelor party and not the wedding actually. For some reason this is not uncommon and not a breach of ettiquete the same way it is with women.  Typically these guys have many fewer expectations regarding weddings

I agree.  It is usually not done.  But guys don’t care as much as PP said.

I usually follow the etiquette book really closely, but guys are different about this stuff.  They just want to hang out with each other and have a good time.  I would just let it go.

Super odd, but not worth an argument.

@eringuilford:  Ya, you’re kind of stuck now so I would just try to let it go. Like PP said, I don’t think the guys will be too offended since they’re not as etiquette conscious.
