My mom who is best friends with MOH’s mom has requested several times to attend whatever Bachelorette Party is going to happen.
Due to everyone being spread out, it’s either going to be in Disney World or Vegas (Bmaids’ suggestions and they will be deciding – not me!).
Has anyone brought their mom? Should I suggest they do something during the day with us, but not at night?
My mom and her friend are fun people and all the bmaids know that, but I’m still not sure how comfortable they would be having them there. sigh.

@orangeroses29: I would have no hesitation in telling them both tht you are welcome to come along on the trip and share shopping, spa etc, but NOT accompany us at night.

I agree with the PP. Let them know they are welcome to come along during the day, but that nighttime is going to be for you and your girls.

I’m not having a traditional bachelorette party (we’re doing a coed outing so that none of our DW guests feel left out) so I don’t actually care, BUT if we were doing normal bar-hopping with penis straws, then nope. Sorry. Absolutely not.

@orangeroses29: My Mom and my Godmother came out clubbing with us after our wedding–they were the life of the party! My friends knew my Mom is a party, but his friends were unsure… Four about five minutes, until we got in the party bus and my Mom shouted “BOOZE RUN! What are we drinking!”
They went shot-for-shot with us all night… It was the best part of going out!

@BrandNewBride: Love it!!
My mom is super cool. So are all the older ladies in my life! I’d LOVE for them to join! It’s funny because sometimes the older ladies REALLY take the opportunity to party it up. I’ve seen it plenty of times!

@orangeroses29: I haven’t had my bachlorette party yet, but sister recently did and we brought our mom along and had so much fun! We opened presents at a restaurant and our mom had a couple margaritas and was slinging panties around. Who knows, maybe she just wants to let her hair down loose!
But do whatever makes you comfortable.

@orangeroses29: I had a similar issue. Basically as soon we we got engaged, FI mentioned something about his mom and aunt being at my bachelorette party. I let it go until she mentioned something about winning the lottery and getting me the best strippers money has to offer, lol.
I pulled FI aside later and told him that my own mother will not be attending my bachelorette party (she doesn’t want to), and that while his mother and aunt will be welcome to join us for daytime activities (spa, wine tour, whatever we wind up doing), the night time will be for friends only. FMIL is one of the most laid back people I know, and I know there’s not much I could do that would offend her (except maybe decline her offer of strippers, haha!–FI and I have reached a no-stripper agreement), but still I want to be free to just be myself and hang with my closest friends that day.

@BrandNewBride: LOL nice.
We’re just doing a low-key co-ed thing at a local food festival, but we aren’t inviting parents. It made me LOL because we were talking about it in terms of dates for my bridal shower, and FFIL was like, “Oh, that sounds fun, what time are we going?” and his wife was like, “OH MY GOD WE ARE NOT GOING STOP IT.” lmao

I’ve seen plenty of moms go out and have a great time at the bars with the rest of the bachelorette party. Often times they don’t come though. I think it should be whatever you are comfortable with. As a friend or someone attending a bachelorette party I wouldn’t mind someone’s mother coming assuming they knew and were okay with what was going on (drinking, bars/clubs, etc) and were excited about it. I wouldn’t have a problem as a guest!!
