I am having a bit of drama myself with my wedding party, where some of bridesmaids husbands get to be groomsmen because they are friends with my Fi well others are not. We are having the same combined bachelorette/bachelor party thing but only difference we are traveling to Vegas. My Fi at first didn’t want the guys that aren’t groomsmen coming but since it is out of state and the guys all get along awkwardness aside, they are coming to party as well.

If your Fi really does NOT like them then I say don’t invite them but if its just because he wants alone time with his brother I say schedule something else for them a few days after or sometime before the wedding alone. Or to avoid this whole issue all together just make it a bachrolette party and maybe have him come up with his brother the 2nd day so the night before is like a girls only thing so their feeling wont get hurt.

MrsJet:  Don’t invite the boyfriends. You Fiance has a very valid excuse. He wants to spend quality time with his borther that he doesn’t get a lot. If your sisters are adults they will understand. If not, like you said, it’s your FIs choice.

I think it will be very special for you guys to spend that time with your siblings and you’ll have a lot of fun. 🙂

btw. My FIs BILs were not invited to his bachelor party.

I think a siblings-only weekend get-away is fine. Your sisters’ boyfriends wouldn’t be invited if these were 2 separate parties. And even though you’ll meet up and stay at the same place, technically, you invited your sisters to your bachelorette and your Fiance invited his brother to his bachelor party. Neither requires an invite for SOs.

If it comes up, explain to your sisters that you are excited for girls-only time, and that Fiance is really looking forward to some bonding time with his brother. They really should understand this situation – it’s not like you’re excluding them from the wedding!

I don’t think it’s rude not to extend the invite to your sister’s SOs. Bachelor and bachelorette parties have never been a couples event in my group so even when the B&G had their party together I never expected my SO to be invited. Have your sisters made a comment that makes you think they would be upset?
