Would you be upset if your FSIL did not invite you to either of her bachelorette parties? You do not like her nor want to go anyway because you won’t know anyone, however your brother (her FI) is having his bachelor party out of state and inviting your husband, so your husband will be gone all weekend for that party while you are at home.

Honestly, I’d be relieved. If I was invited I’d feel obligated to go.

Not unless we were close, which is clearly not the case here.

I’d probably be relieved, but a little annoyed that she didn’t at least extend a courtesy invite.

A weekend of ice cream and chic flicks vs awkward time with unknown people and a chic you don’t like…yeah ice cream wins hands down. I think @sara tiara has the right word, relieved.

You can’t have it both ways. If I had a budget or cap of people, I woudn’t waste one on someone with whom I don’t get along.
Her FIs relationship with your husband….. has nothing to do with her relationship with you, except as invites to the wedding -which is you as a couple. This is HER party, so she should invite whoemever she wants to celebrate with her.

It’s strange she didn’t invite the FSIL? It’s family, you should always invite family no matter what. Well at least the weekend is all HERS! LOL

I wouldn’t expect to be invited to a party like that unless I actually considered myself to be a friend of the bride.

I’d feel the same as rubybride, I think. A courtesy invite at least show she’s trying to keep the peace and not start drama, but if I didn’t like FSIL anyway I’d be glad not to feel obligated to go.

I’m just being honest here, but I’d probably be pissed off.
Not that I remotely wanted to go, because I don’t even like her. But I guess that to me, her not asking me to come would just confirm that she doesn’t like me either. So then I’d probably dislike her even more, in knowing that the feeling was mutual.
Hahah I’m a dirty hypocrite. Thankfully FI is an only child!

Probably. I would’ve wanted a courtesy “we’re going to be family soon” invite. I dunno if I would go or not, though. It’d depend on what they were doing.

I wouldn’t expect to be invited unless I was a good friend of the bride, or I was actually in the wedding.

@the_future_mrs: LOL, this is what I think is going to happen…
I think she wants the courtesy invite just because she is the groom’s sister and the chance to decline to make the bride (me) feel bad. Since she already declined my bridal shower, I am not going to give her the opportunity.
Her husband wants to throw my FI a bachelor party and she blocked it, saying he can’t since he isn’t in the bridal party. I feel like contacting FBIL directly and telling him to throw it and if he needs $$$ for extra lap dances, to let me know. She can sit on her couch alone with ice cream while we all are out partying.
