Hi bees! Just curious on how many of you invited or plan on inviting your mom to your bachelorette party? Also, what kind of bachelorette party will you be having (did you have)? Dinner, drinks, club? Dinner, drinks, naughty banana hammock man? (LOL) Etc….. I invited my mom to mine. She’s a ton of fun to party with, even though she doesn’t really get drunk, and I know that she will really love to be involved in that part of the wedding. I’m letting my BMs know that I condone all sorts of silly/raunchy do-dads, but please no male strippers! Post your thoughts!!!

Both my mum and Future Mother-In-Law came to my hen’s night as well as my Aunt’s. We just did dinner, dancing and drinking in Vegas (we had a DW). My mum was actually there to the very end coming home with my two best friends and myself well after dad got me from the buck’s night!

I’m having a combo bridal shower/bachelorette party two nights before the wedding since I won’t be anywhere near my family and friends until that week. So yes, my mom, step-mom, and Future Mother-In-Law are all invited. But some people might go out/stay out later than others, not sure what the plan is. I’m sure the mothers will know if there’s a point at which everyone else would rather they leave.

My mom, aunt and Mother-In-Law were invited to my party. My Mother-In-Law ended up getting sick that morning but my mom and aunt were there and had a great time. Male strippers and penis paraphernalia are not my cup of tea so I didn’t have to worry about my mom seeing anything weird. My party consisted of wine tasting, dinner at a nice Mexican restaurant, a comedy show and then gay bar karaoke. It was lots of fun and I love that my mom and aunt joined. I’m very close to both of them so it was only right that they participated.

I’m not having a traditional bachelorette party. My mom and are actually going to Vegas (just the two of us) for a girls trip before my wedding. We won’t be clubbing or anything like that, just some shopping, gambling, drinking, and yummy food. We’ve done this before so it isn’t unsual for us. All of my bridesmaids are out-of-state, so we are just going to a spa when they come in a couple days before the wedding.

I’m not sure if my mom or Future Mother-In-Law will be invited yet. My FI’s family has a history of inviting their mothers (and even their Grandmother went to my FSIL’s party…). I felt awfully uncomfortable with this idea since I’m self concious. I doubt anything crazy will go on since my Maid/Matron of Honor knows I’m more on the reserved side. I can’t say that some other ladies might not try to get a little crazy though. When I posted about my concern a few months ago somebody suggested I have dinner and drinks with everyone (mothers included) and then all the younger ladies could split and do something else after.
I think it’s all a matter of what you’re comfortable with. If you think your mom would love to be involved and you don’t mind having her go for it! I guess you would just have to think of the most embarrassing thing that could happen and ask yourself if you’d be ok with your mom being there for it.

I’m spending the weekend in a giant log cabin with a hot tub and 11 of my best girls. Mom’s not included unfortunately.

My mom is my best friend so my bach party would not be complete without her. She never judges and is sooo much fun to be around! Everyone loves her!

My mom came to the first part of my bachelorette party where we opened up lingerie and then she left before the girls and I went to aerial silks lessons and then out to the bars.

not sure if my girls will throw me anything. But if I have both bridal shower and bachlorette party, the female family members will be invited to the shower, but not the party. Party I tend to reserve for younger crowd 🙂

I don’t know what is being planned for my bachelorette party but I would not feel comfortable with my mother there…I love my mom and we’re close, but we are not that close!

Although I love my mom and she is an incredible person and FUN to be around, I almost feel like the circumstances would cause her to go buck wild and she might end up mortifying me? Is that horrible to say? I feel horrible saying it.
We’re going to NYC for dinner and dancing and knowing my mom, I can see her dancing on a table. I’m actually the opposite of her in many ways, and I am quite reserved. I don’t feel like I could truly let loose with my mom acting like a 20-year-old. God bless her but I just can’t.

No waaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaay. We’re not even doing anything raunchy, but I just want to cut loose with my friends and talk about some stuff from years past that maybe Mom doesn’t need to know lol (she wouldn’t care, I just don’t want to talk about it with her!). I’m weirded out that Future Sister-In-Law will be there but she’s a Bridesmaid or Best Man…me and my friends are umm pottymouths, and I know some frank talk about sex and the like will come up. FSIL has just never ever seen that side of me (although she must suspect, I mean, Fiance is not shy about being a horndog)

@MrsB2012: You seem like you’re close to your mother, as am I. She also is the parent I can curse with, the parent i can joke around with (I am close with my dad too but it’s different)…she’s like a girlfriend. So yes, I want her invited (I’m not planning my bachelorette so I’m not technically inviting her). But it depends on how close you are to her, I’d say.

Super funny to see the poll results! I’m definitely close to my mom and neither of us is very shy about any topic. I think I’m really actually looking forward to having her there! My Future Mother-In-Law is definitely NOT invited. I can only take her in small doses for one. And two, I just don’t really want to share that night with her (I know that sounds harsh).
