Is it required that all of the bridesmaids be at the bride’s bachelorette party? Would you say this part is optional or required? If one bridesmaid is uncomfortable with it, is it a big deal if they don’t come? Has anyone else ever had any experience with being uncomfortable going to a bachelorette party? How did you handle it?

I had one of my bridesmaids miss part of my bach party because she couldn’t afford it. I think as long as there’s a good reason (and not just like they got invited to a better party or something), I think it’s fine for bridesmaids to miss the bach party. If you’re uncomfortable with it (I’m guessing they’re going to a strip club?), can you maybe meet them before or after?

I think it is okay for them to not be there if they have a good reason (kind of as hilsy85 said).
It’s not requred that they attend but IMO, as a Bridesmaid or Best Man, you should make every reasonable effort to be there for what you can.

I don’t think it is required especially if as you say they are uncomfortable with it… as a matter if fact, two of my BMs are pretty much not invited since they are much more conservative than I am and I think it would make them uncomfortable being there and me uncomfortable worrying what they thought of the whole thing.

Agree that they should make an effort – 2 missed mine but that is b/c they live out of state.
