- Wedding: July 2010
My sister is my Maid/Matron of Honor (she just turned 18) and my bridesmaid is my cousin (she is 16). It was basically expected that the wedding party would consist of relatives. Anyways, they are really young! My sister just asked me what I would like for a bachelorette party.
My friend from school has been extremely helpful in wedding planning (she got married 2 years ago) and asked who I wanted to invite to the bachelorette party. She didn’t expect my sister to really do anything because she is so young.
I’m kind of a quiet person, and am not really interested in having a bachelorette party. My friend knows that I am not comfortable with a “traditional” bachelorette party, and mentioned just inviting whoever I wanted, going out to a nice dinner, have some wine, etc. The girls live about an hour away, and they of course are too young to be drinking or really going out. I would hate for the girls to feel out of place because my friends are in their early – mid-twenties, are in professional school, etc, and my sister and cousin are in high school. They two different groups haven’t met before.
So my questions:
- Do I try to get them to work together to come up with something?
- Should I do something separately with my sister and cousin and then with my friends?
- Who else do I need to invite – my mother and Future Mother-In-Law, other female relatives? (If my mom was in attendance, there probably wouldn’t be a big issue with the girls being there too – basically they would be “chaperoned” I guess…)
