futuremrsgo2016:  if you are not close with her dad and her parents are separated/divorced, just invite her mother (provided you’re close to her mother) If you’re not particularly close with her mother either, don’t invite her mom. You aren’t obligated to invite your bridal party’s parents.

I am not inviting all of my bridesmaids’ parents, just my MOH’s, who I’ve grown up with.

I only invited all of mine because they are close family friends but I considered asking a college friend to be in my wedding and I wouldn’t of invited her parents, I never met them.

My Maid/Matron of Honor asked me NOT to invite her parents because she felt she would have to entertain them the entire time lol.  I’m only inviting one of my bridesmaids’ parents because they’ve watched me grow up plus they’re in the social group with my parents.  Only invite who you’re close with.

I think it is ultimately your decision. If you’ve grown up with them, they would probably love to be there. That being said, it seems like if you know one BM’s mom better than her dad, her dad might not mind so much if he’s not invited. You could always talk to your Bridesmaid or Best Man and ask how she thinks her parents would feel being invited/not invited.

futuremrsgo2016:  Invite whomever you want. Of my bridesmaids, 3 were family so their parents were already coming (my parents, ILs, and DH’s aunt/uncle). Of the other 3 BMs, I ony invited my MOH’s parents because my Maid/Matron of Honor is my best friend and has been since middle school. I’m pretty close to them.
