My fiance and i chose to have a small bridal party consisting of family members only. My brother is his best man, his sister is his groomswoman, and his cousin is his groomsman. My cousin is my Maid/Matron of Honor and my 2 other cousins are my BMs. That’s 3 on each side. We both have large groups of friends and we just could’t choose between them. If we chose all of them then half our wedding would be in our bridal party hahaha!! Is it appropriate to ask my friends to attend the bachelorette party even though they’re not in the bridal party? I already know one of them understands completely the family thing and still asked to be part of the bachelorette festivities. I really want them there because we’ve been close for so long but i dont want to be tacky either. So is it ok to ask non bridal party members to celebrate the backelorette pary with me? Same situation with my fiance he wants his buddy’s there but we dont know what appropriate here.

Bach parties are for all your friends, not just your bridal party!
ETA: All your friends as long as they are invited to your wedding that is!

@daniellemc: Invite who ever you want there is no right or wrong! I see no problem with inviting all your friends! I have been to a few and they have all been not JUST the wedding party.

@daniellemc: yes. We’re inviting a few other friends who are close, but not in the bridal party to the bachelorette

Of course you can invite people who aren’t in the bridal party! Just as long as they’re invited to the wedding.

@MsJ2theZ: +1, as long as they’re invited to the wedding!!! (like bridal showers, only less people invite grandma and mothers to their bachelorette party LOL!)

Your bachelor/bachelorette parties are not only for the wedding party! I say invite any friends you want! It’s the same with the bridal shower etc. As long as they are at least invtited to the wedding, you can invite them to the parties 🙂

oh they are alllll invited to the wedding!!! I’ve never been married before so i wasn’t really sure how this whole thing works. My mom said she wasn’t sure how it should be dealt with either since it’s been quite some time since she’s been wedding aged 😉 But this is great to know! I’m glad i can have my girls there with me without looking tacky. I’ll let my Maid/Matron of Honor know 🙂 SOOOO happy!!
