Technically from an etiquette standpoint, anyone involved with pre-wedding parties should be invited to the wedding.  I’m sure in this day & age there would be a little bit more flexibility since the wedding is several hours from where you live, but to be safe invite those who plan or attend your bach party.

I agree. Better to be safe and invite them, then to potentially offend your new friends. So I guess like you said, stick to inviiting only those you’d be comfortable with inviting to your wedding, but also consider if there are other friends who may be offended that they weren’t invited to your Bach. Party. I would also be sure you run it by your Fiance before adding more guests to your wedding.

@DaneLady:  That’s not actually true. If coworkers, which is what fellow grad students are, decide to host a shower or party that includes mostly just coworkers and they are aware they aren’t bring invited, that is considered to bot violate etiquette.

So to the OP, it’s absolutely fine, but you need to have the conversation (it’s hard, I know) in which you let them know that you aren’t inviting any of them to the weddings, but would lvoe to celebrate with them if they still want to. I’m in grad school myself, and in situations like these, we usually suspect we aren’t invited, but are still so excited for our colleague that we want to party with her anyway.
