- Wedding: April 2014
I have just pinched this from another one of my threads to save rewriting (lazy bee, heheh):
“Since leaving school and concentrating on work and study, I’ve lost touch with most of my friends and haven’t really made any new ones since (workplace group is mostly older, and I’ve been doing uni externally so haven’t really had the time or opportunity to “bond” with any classmates).”
Anyway. FH has a number of female friends and I’m not sure whether to invite them to my bachelorette party. Most are his old workmates, some are girlfriends of his friends and others are just friends.
I do get along with all of them when we hang out but I’ve never been particularly close with any of them (even though I was invited and did go to one of their bachelorette parties). I’m just not sure what to do about my bachelorette.
Do I just do something special/simple with my three sisters (one is mine, the other two are FH’s) and two mums (one’s mine one’s his), and then just send a general, flexible group invite to the other girls to meet us at a place for drinks or something?
I just think I would feel awkward inviting them to an organised event (i.e. hiring out a room at a club especially for us) because even though we do get along I’m not that close with them – and after all the majority of people who would be there are my FH’s friends, not mine (I don’t have any/enough friends of my own to warrant reserving space somewhere)!
However I also feel that these girls know me enough to perhaps ask me/each other why I didn’t have a bachelorette party or didn’t invite them (I know it’s my thing and I shouldn’t worry, but they are just all lovely and I would hate to hurt anyone’s feelings!)
FH is lucky – his bachelor party is going to be awesome! He has a great (and large!) bunch of guy friends, so a little sad I miss out (I mean I know I’m not allowed to be there in the first place), but I’m happy and confident he’ll have a great night.
Thanks for reading and I look forward to your responses.
