I was wondering is it normal to invite wedding party members' significant others to pre-wedding parties? Particularly the bachelor/bachelorette?
After talking to our wedding party members we decided it will work out best for everyone if we do them the night before the rehearsal dinner since everyone is spread across the US or overseas. Since they are all invited with their SO I had assumed that I'd add his groomsmens' SOs to my list to give my MOH and he'd do likewise with my bridesmaids' SOs to give to his BM. However when I told him this he was like "I don't know them so they aren't coming".
I feel like for the people who are closer it's not a huge deal but most of them are flying in with their SOs (at least I assume they wouldn't fly separate) so I feel like its rude to not include them. I tried explaining this and he doesn't think it matters. Since my fiance seems to be the one who has the problem with this should I see if my MOH and bridesmaid would want their guys tagging along with us? Or is that weirder?
