If your paying for the bachelorette party, the self invited in law should go along for the theme. Agreeing that sometimes the maturity of a voice of reason is there only because she has compassion, and would hate to see such a beautiful union destroyed over one night of partying.
One night of partying can last last a life time even if you weren’t at the party.
If if you feel so strongly about it then, be open and tell her how you feel, drunk karaoke sounds like fun, but I can see the other perspective and playing it safe is what more people should do.

True, I see that point.
It doesn’t sound like they are going to be partying with men (unless I misunderstood) so it doesn’t sound like anything could happen (letting males strippers touch her and getting a little too touchy with men….either a stripper or men at a club) and there’s no one there but the women for the party.
I’m still trying to visualize what is going to “shock” the mom and what she’d be objecting to. Maybe there is more to the party and it just went over my head. Usually the only problems occur with inappropriate touching and contact when the guys have girls with their parties or the women have men at theirs (stripper and/or clubs).

Not everybody has the same relationships with their moms. Where I come from, mom’s attend bachelorette parties. My mom wanted to come to mine, but I wasn’t comfortable with it, so I told her no. However, I did let her host her own version of a bachelorette party with family and some of my friends (with the understanding that this was a bit more watered down). She had a blast, and I had a blast so it worked out. Why not let her host her own version of a bachelorette party? A girl can have two!
