    I actually don’t think it’s the norm to invite the older ladies of the fam but I’m doing it. It really depends on what you’re event will entail. A bachelorette party like what you described probably wouldn’t interest most middle aged women while my wine tasting, dinner & a comey show party, would. I definitely wouldn’t feel bad. I doubt they’d be offended.

    I think its normal to have the shower with the older people and the bachelorette with the younger crowd. Most older women would be uncomfortable with a bachelorette (at least a wild one). Men are different. Older men love reliving to “good old days”, well some do, so I find them more comfortable with partying. I wouldn’t worry too much as long as there is a shower for the older women to celebrate with you too.

    It would be really awkward if my mom came to a “traditional” bachelorette party. So I think what you’re doing is fine.

    I think what you’re doing is fine. I am sort of meeting in the middle on this, and the older aunts/moms/older-lady-friends will be invited out for dinner and a few cocktails with the whole gang, and then the younger crowd will head out to dance and such.

    Then they can be a part of the party, but you still get the night out with your younger friends.

    @cherrycoke:Haha, yes, then I think I’d just keep it to the younger crowd. But I’m afraid my older crowd will be rowdier than us young chicks…maybe that’s the real reason we’re going out dancing without them, lol!
