My mom had no interest in coming to my bachelorette party and frankly I didn’t want her there. But there was never any question about my dad and FI’s dad coming to his bachelor party. They are having a BBQ, going to a baseball game and then the dad’s are going home for the strip club part – although I think FI’s GM’s dad is going to the strip club. It is really funny b/c the one Groomsmen became a born again Christian and isn’t even coming to the party.
That said your Fiance needs to do what makes him comfortable. I get where he’s coming from. What about having some tamer activities and then Fi can go out on his own?

If they’re cool with it yes. If not, no.
My mom came to my bachelorette party. She gifted me silicone lube and a Kama Sutra, just like a cool mom should, LOL.

My husband went to my sons bachelor party at my son’s insistence. Now, my son is a nerd and I think having Dad attend made him hopeful that things would be calm. David didn’t stay long…a couple hours…the boys dragged him out to the strip club in the end. (funny..he doesn’t even drink..at all) anyway, it’s oK for a Dad to go…he just needs to know when to leave.

Actually, Mr Star invited his dad and all of his uncles. He’s really excited about them coming, too. I guess it just depends on what your guy wants!

Wow, this is weird my Fiance just ran into this problem last night. I guess his dad asked his brother if he could come to FI’s bachelor party. It’s not until the end of next month. But my Fiance does not want him to be there. He wants to be able to party and act stupid if he wants. His dad and him are really close, but it would probably be awkward getting hammered, and getting a lap dance with his dad beside him. My advice is to do a dinner thing before or something, and let him know that it’s just the young ones going out.

Ok, so I thought my Future Mother-In-Law came up with this all by herself. She called Fiance the other day and asked when his bachelor party is, because she says it’s “traditional” that both fathers go. Not where I come from it’s not? Weird. My mom isn’t coming to my bachelorette party, so why would our dads go to his bachelor party? No clue. Anyways, I think they are coming up with a compromise that the dads can go to dinner with the guys then go home or do something else while the guys go out and party. I just can’t imagine trying to have one last night to let your hair down and enjoy yourself with your friends, and trying not to embarress yourself in front of your mother (or dad).
My 2 cents,

I think this happens a lot where I’m from. I know my husband has been to many bachelor parties where the groom’s dad and uncles were there. It’s not that big of a deal.
I had my mom and aunts at my bachelorette party for part of it. They all ate at the restaurant and had drinks with us. Then my friends and cousins and I went out to the bars without them. It’s not that weird.

My mom is coming to mine. Maybe even a couple of my aunts.
My aunts came to my sister’s.
We all had a blast. Penis sculpting and all.
