Hmmm, it sounds like your stuck between a rock and a hard place.  I don’t blame you for not wanting her family there.  Just the thought of it reminds me of this picture.

Chances are no strippers will be there with your soon to be in laws there.  Your best man would have to be a complete idiot to have her dad there as well as strippers.

Maybe you could tell her that since your family wont be there you would prefer hers not to be there.  Think wisely before telling her that because some women would assume that means strippers and/or hookers.

That’s great he’s got the party planned, and that he and his friends are obviously accepting enough of your fiancee that he’s happy letting her know what the plan is! On the other hand, I think it’s pretty off that your fiancee asked him to invite her family without even running it by you first. My dad and brothers love my fiance, but I don’t think he would have had nearly as much fun on his buck’s party if they were with him. Similarly, I wouldn’t invite his mother to my hen’s night – I love her and am happy to have her as part of my life, but some parts of my life can just be between me and my close family and friends.

I think that was a great idea to make sure there’s a backup plan in case something goes “wrong” at the bachelor party. Just make sure your friend won’t have to be sober to get you out of the situation – as long as he’s got the local taxi number on him, you should be fine 🙂

I guess there’s not really much I can suggest in this situation, except tell your fiancee how you feel about her family being there, and stress to your best man (and the rest of the guys) that if there’s anything at the bachelor party that isn’t above board, you’ll be out the door, without even waiting for an explanation.

I can understand marrying into the family.  I knew basically all my fiance’s side before we started dating.  It’ll probably be a simple congrats bachelor party and nothing for you to worry about.  I guess you’ll just have to deal with all her relatives there and none of yours.  🙁 Sorry.
