Can you invite people to your bachelorette party and not the wedding?
Our wedding is going to be very small – 30-40 people, and there’s some girls that I know would want to come and would have fun! Most of my friends know they won’t be coming to the wedding, and they seem to be okay with that 🙂 Is this rude?????

Typically, it’s not in good taste to invite people to these events without inviting them to the wedding. But if everyone involved knows they aren’t invited to the wedding, and still want to go to the bachelorette, go for it. Who would it be rude to? Everyone who couldbe offended is fine with it.

I think if your friends know that they’re not invited to your wedding (and they’re fine and understanding of it), then it’s ok. But don’t invite anyone to your bachelorette before you let them know your situation.

As long as they are ok with it. They don’t HAVE to come, right? Just make sure they aren’t feeling obligated to bring a gift–they can always meet up with you all out and about, too!
I see bachelorette parties as more of a fun time out anyways. Plus, your wedding IS really small, so I think it’s perfectly acceptable! I don’t think it’s rude
