My Maid/Matron of Honor has asked me for a guestlist for my bachelorette party. Who all did you invite?
I know it’s ultimately up to me, but I’m curious about your input.
We’re having a small destination wedding, and planning to do a very low-key bachelorette at our location. I could do just my wedding party and FSILs (6 people). If I include all the ladies “in my age demo”, it works out to be up to 17 people, which I am not opposed to.
However, that includes two close friends of my Fiance who I haven’t actually met. Would it be weird to invite them too?
How did you make your guest list, and how did it turn out?

Is your fiancé having a bachelor party the same night? I think it’s up to you which way to go but I think it either has to be really small like the 6 you mention or inviting basically all of the women who will be there so a few aren’t feeling left out. I had a small party with just bridesmaids but it was a different situation, a destination bachelorette two months before the wedding.

invite good friends. that means your bridal party and whatever other friends you’re close with – you don’t need to invite ALL the women in your age demographic. i certainly woudlnt be inviting girls that i’ve never met.

I would invite all the females that are coming to your wedding seeing as it’s a destination wedding. One of my best friends went to an overseas wedding and was the only girl not invited to the bachelorette party which took place a couple days before the wedding, and she was pretty hurt by it. Even if they decline it’s thoughtful to invite them.
