Who cares if she comes to your bachelorette party!  It’s a BACHELORETTE PARTY!  You are supposed to have fun, let loose and have a good time!  Why can’t you do that with this one girl around? Does she cramp your style that much? Is she going to take the attention away from you? More people, the more fun I always say. 

I think you are over reacting and making a big deal out of 1 person. You probably won’t even notice her all weekend!

As far as the smaller events go, I would give the Girlfriend the same courtesies as you would if it was your SIL’s boyfriend attending, or any of your other BM’s +1’s. Would you expect them to be at your bachelorette party, riding in the limo, etc? Typically, from my understanding, and experiences at other weddings, +1’s of the wedding party are not a part of these seperate events, and don’t usually get to even sit with their date during the reception.

@NavyBride2013:  As a member of the wedding party AND your FI’s sister, she gets a plus 1. I don’t think you should be so offended… or even shocked.
