I invited several friends to my bridal shower who were not invited to my bachelorette party. I think bach. parties are commonly seen as for those very close to the bride. For example, I only invited my six bridesmaids and two friends who were doing readings (so, all of the girls in my wedding) to my bachelorette party, and that felt perfectly natural.

That’s the fun of all of these different events! 🙂

Not at all! The bach party is usually a lot smaller! Totally fine to not invite everyone to it!

No, they don’t need to be invited to both. My Future Mother-In-Law, Future Sister-In-Law and nieces will all be invited to my shower and they are absolutely not invited to the bachelorette party.

As long as they are invited to the wedding you’re fine.

Nope- the aunts are not getting invited to the bachelorette (even though it’s probably going to be a low-key spa day, or trip to a vineyard) 🙂

Nothing wrong with keeping the bachelorette party smaller.

I didn’t have a shower, but I have been invited to friends’ showers and not their bach parties so it’s fine.

If everyone invited all of the shower people to the bachelorette, it would be extremely awkward.  Bridal showers typically include a lot of family members.  My shower will be about 30 people (invited). The bachelorette will be 10-12 invited.
