    My husband was considering inviting the dads to the dinner portion of his bachelor party. They ended up not doing it, but I don’t think it’s *that* weird.

    It depends on the type of party. If it involved something that was heavy on the drinking, dancing, and partying then I probably wouldn’t invite my mom. However, a nice dinner out? Why not?

    I don’t think it’s weird. You like who you like. You enjoy spending time with whom you enjoy spending time. He just so happens to like his dad. That’s pretty damn great.

    I had my mum and aunts at my bachelorette (which was staying in with decorations, food and movies). I think it depends on the type of celebration. In your fiances example, I think it would be nice to invite the fathers.

    fourthnoel :  If it’s just a dinner out and a game I think that’s totally fine, I’d just make sure that the Best Man isn’t planning any surprises that could be offensive to your fathers.

    It isn’t weird where i’m from, it is pretty common for hen or stag parties to be a family and friend occasion.  Usually the older family members take part earlier on in the day or evening and the younger ones go out at night.  I went to one recently with the bride’s mum, Mother-In-Law and grandmother. 

    I live away from my family so I will only be having friends at mine and I think my mum was a little disappointed. If it was local my mum definitely would have been included.

    It’s a little odd, as in it’s definitely not the norm to include parents but that doesn’t mean he can’t if he wants to.

    I would say it’s unusual, but I think a chill bachelor party can pretty easily include dad’s (I believe my sister’s husband invited his dad – they went to the shooting range then ate hamburgers, it was very buddy buddy and nothing to blush-worthy) but I’m not sure how I’d feel opening sexy lingerie in front of my mom. But his call! If it him makes it happy no reason not to!

    I don’t think it’s weird. My brother invited my dad to the dinner and drinks portion of his bachelor party, but it was relatively low-key.

    I voted before I read.  What your Fiance wants to do is definitely not weird.  What was awkward and uncomfortable was my BFF’s conservative, shy mom being at her bachelorette (complete with penis shaped cake, penis straws, and raunchy lingerie presents).  It’s been 13 years and I still cringe!

    fourthnoel :  My husband invited his dad and my dad to his bachelor party, but his was pretty low key. They went to breakfast, then went to my parents property to shoot guns and then later went out I believe.

    its not weird just not something i’d want to do.  I don’t think my parents would enjoy hanging out with me and my friends, even a little.. and I would have a hard time enjoying myself knowing my mom/dad (and even more so more fmil/ffil) wasnt enjoying themselves.

    My mom came to my bachelorette party and my sister’s also. So I don’t think it’s weird.
