I don’t think it’s customary to invite your future mother-in-law to your bachelorette party. I definitely don’t think you’re obligated.

If you’re inviting your mom, however, and want to include your Future Mother-In-Law, go for it! 

It is probably a good idea to invite his sisters and SILs, especially if they are in the bridal party.

Otherwise I would just stick to the ladies you feel close to. No need to invite the whole family!

I might be slightly confused here, but are you having both a Bridal Shower and Bachelorette Party in San Diego?

 I would say invite the girls to the bachelorette party in San Diego.  If you want to do something with the family maybe have one of the parents host a bridal shower in Las Vegas.   This would satisfy all parties maybe?

Good Luck!

I always though the shower was planned for the bride andnot by the bride. When I was last a Bridesmaid or Best Man, the Maid/Matron of Honor (sister of the bride) and bride’s mom took care of the guest list for her side of the family and asked the groom’s mother who should be invited from his side of the family. I got the impression that all women invited to the wedding were invited to the shower, we had about 70 people at the shower. Is it typical for a bride to plan her own shower? I don’t have much experience.

The bachelorette party is different, I think you can invite whomever you want to that. I’ve been to bachelorette’s where they did something during the day including mothers, aunts, young sisters, nieces, jr. bridesmaids (BBQ, bowling, etc) and then the bride and her BMs and friends went out in the evening. Maybe you can somehow incorporate your Father-In-Law if they travel to SD.

 Good luck!
