    I’m in the US and I invited my mom. It was a “typical” bachelorette party over a weekend. We had a blast.

    veej :  I didn’t have a bachelorette party, but if I had, I’d definitely invite my mom! I’m not into strippers or penis shaped objects everywhere so any celebration that I’d enjoy would be fine for my mom to attend too. Do what makes you happy 🙂

    veej :  I didn’t invite my mom, I would find that really uncomfortable personally. But honestly it’s your bachelorette and you can invite whoever you want! If you want her there then definitely invite her 🙂

    I had both my Mom and her BFF, as well as my Mother-In-Law at mine. It was a lot of fun.

    I’m in the UK, and I don’t think I’ve ever been on a hen party where the bride’s mum wasn’t invited, there’s normally a couple of aunts floating around too.

    I didn’t want a hen party, I just went out for afternoon tea and champagne with my closest girls, but my mum was still invited to that. I doubt she’d have wanted to go if it was a wild night out (neither would I…), but she’d still have been invited.

    I didn’t answer your poll because there was no “other” option but…yes and no…

    My mom was invited to the dinner portion of the party, along with my mother-in-law and all my bridesmaids. But then after that we met up with all my other friends at a bar and partied late into the evening. The moms weren’t invited to that part. 

    However next weekend I’m going to a destination bachelorette party in Charleston and the bride’s mom is coming to that and I assume being included in all of the festivities. The bride is VERY close with her mom so it makes sense.

    veej :  my mom is fun and all my friends love her, so she was a blast!

    That being said, i had some aunts and my mom attend the first portion (dinner, drinks, Thunder from down under) then they went home and my friends and I continued the night to a bar/club and other shennanigans that i shouldnt talk about online lol

    I definitely would invite her if I didn’t have so many bridesmaids. I think it would be adorable. But I have six bridesmaids and I think it would be a fabulous chance for us to get together as just a group of girls and enjoy each other.

    My mom, aunts, and grandma came to mine. Mine was really low key, though- we went to a greek restaurant with a belly dancer and then went bowling.

    I didn’t have one and if I did no way in hell I’d have invited my mom. But with that said, I have been to Bach parties where moms/aunts came along and it was totally cool. I think it depends on what you’re doing, your mom’s personality, and your relationship with her. So it’s different for everyone.

    I’m inviting my mom, grandmother, and aunts! I think everyone is going to have an amazizng time. These ladies are all special in my life, and I know they would feel left out if they weren’t included!

    If it’s her kind of party, then yes I would. My bach party was tame (we went to Disney and then out to dinner) and my mom came. It was fun! My mom also came to my sister’s wine tasting bachelorette party. She loves wine so it was perfect. 

    My best friend did a Vegas weekend and we didn’t invite her mom lol.
