It looks like my shower and my bachelorette party will be one week apart – everyone is local, is it rude or presumptious to have them so close together? The guest lists will be very similar, with the exception of my mother and FMIL, who will both be invited to the shower.
In addition – I’m having a bridesmaids luncheon – do the Mom’s get invited to that as well?

No I don’t think it is rude to have the shower and bach party a week apart. I just was in a wedding and we had the bach party and the following weekend two showers. That was a little much to do three events in two weekends. The wedding was a week later and we had rehearsal dinner, bridal luncheon and wedding. So I think it is fine, sometimes it just happens that way with everyone’s schedules. Most people are understanding of that.
Yes you invite the mom’s to the bridal luncheon.

As long as everyone is local then its not a problem. We did a girls luncheon (she didn’t have a wedding party, just her sister) and we didn’t have the moms there. It was a very fun time for us all to meet up and chat and it would have been a little bit different atmosphere if the moms where there.

Not rude if it’s local. If anyone is not, just tell them ahead of time you totally understand if they can just make one.

I dont think its rude, especially since everyone is local! I would invite the moms to the luncheon too.
