Just say that you can’t make it to the hen’s night, but would be delighted to be at the wedding and the reception. No need to go into details.

I don’t think it’s a big deal, I’m sure she’ll understand. Fiance and I plan on attending a friend’s wedding this summer and I was recently invited to her bachelorette but I most likely won’t go. It’s not even because of any strippers, just that I can’t afford to pay for dinner and entertainment in the city when I have my own wedding to pay for. I don’t think she’ll care.

I would just say that you have another commitment.  Maybe a commitment to your husband not to watch strippers… but she doesn’t need to know that.

Agreed. Send your regrets for the hen night, go to the wedding. (Have a prior engagement.)
