NOT a fancy, costly Bachelorette Party, NOT getting fussed over. But just a low key, simple gathering with close girlfriends. They would all be invited to a celebration shortly after tying the knot. Is this socially acceptable?

- Wedding: October 2019 - Chateau Lake Louise
jonasbutterfly : Um… of course. You can have a girl’s night whenever you want. Lots of people who are eloping – or having a destination wedding – have a bachelorette party before they go. I think the reason people run up against problems of etiquette is when they have events where gifts are customary (like a shower) and want to invite people who aren’t invited to the wedding.
In this case, what you’re describing is what I like to call a Ladydate Delux. You are just getting together with a group of your favorite ladies to have a nice evening. No big production. No gifts. No problem.

is it ok to have a girls night out? yes.
elopements are supposed to be secretive so why don’t you just plan a girls night with your besties.
and then celebrate again after the elopement.

jonasbutterfly : No, definitely not socially acceptable. Once you elope you can never have a girls night again.

You’re not really eloping if the fact that you’re going off to get married is common knowledge amongst your friends, unless you’re all hiding it from your parents or something like that.
Yes, it’s fine. I see nothing wrong with what you described.

I actually think you should do a girls night every now and then even after your married.
