- Wedding: November 2014
I am just wondering about the etiquette for the bachelorette party. My mom will be coming out for dinner and games, but will probably head back to the hotel when we go to the bars. Should I invite my FMIL? I know she would come if invited (she wants to be very involved with the wedding), but she does not drink and is very conservative. My friends and I like to be silly and drink and I would feel like we couldn’t be ourselves around her. She doesn’t have any daughters so I kind of feel guilty not including her, but I know it would change the vibe of the party. My Maid/Matron of Honor wants to do lingerie games and things and I would feel totally awkward around her.
Also, Future Brother-In-Law has a very serious gf and they may be engaged before the bachelorette party. We have gotten along the few times we’ve hung out, but she doesn’t drink and doesn’t know any of my friends/family. Am I obligated to invite her as well? Again, I feel like I couldn’t be myself knowing that I would have to make sure she was having fun all night.
Anyone have any insights?
