@Miss Kay: This is the first time I’ve heard of inviting family members such as moms/aunts to a bachelorette party. Maybe a regional thing? If you intend to invite your mom and aunts, then as a courtesy, I would invite your fiance’s mom/aunts/cousins. Most likely they’ll decline, but would appreciate the invitation. If they do end up coming, then you could take it as a time to get to know them. Or, just make it a friends or “young ones” bachelorette party, that way there’s no pressure to invite your fiance’s side. You can always have your mom/aunts, fiance’s mom/aunts at your bridal shower. Good luck!

Ditto-never heard of inviting moms and aunts to bachlorette party before.  But if you are doing spa day or something, I can see that.  Either way, if you are inviting your mom and aunts, you should invite your ILs as well.

Its also a nice gesture to invite any female guests that came in town for your wedding if they came in early.

I’m not inviting mom/aunts but my bachelorette is just girls from my side – I’m not inviting any of his family at all.  I think you could invite who you wanted from your family and not worry about inviting his side – I think everyone knows that bachelorette’s are a time to let loose with those you are closest too!

I am not inviting any mothers – mostly my friends, but Fiance does have two younger and fun aunts and I’m inviting them.

I am not having a bridal shower, so I am inviting my mom and grandma to my bachelorette party.  I don’t think it’s weird at all, we have a very close relationship and my family has been surroggate family for many of my friends, so nobody would be uncomfortable.  We constantly joke about sex and stuff so that won’t be weird either.
