destination wedding bachelorette party

my best friend is getting married in Mexico on feb 24th... she isnt having a formal wedding party, because there will only be about 20 or so people at the wedding including the bride and groom, so she has asked me to be a witness.. she is also my maid of honour.. Im going to talk to her about this tonight but I wasnt sure what was proper. in the case when its a destination wedding, They are talking about having a reception/party when they come home, but another friend of hers and myself were going to throw her a bachelorette party here before we leave... (the other friend was invited but is unable to go due to cost-( its a pretty expensive resort that they are staying at)... my question.. is it okay to have a bachelorette party for her- her friends know that she is getting married out of town- and its a close friends and family type wedding.. but  I think it would still be fun to plan a fun night out for her..
Thoughts?
Thanks! I just dont know what is considered "proper" with a destination wedding- as she is my first close friend to be getting married...

    If you want to throw her the bachlorette party and you're wiling to, then go ahead. I think it's a nice gesture of you.

    Since they are having an at home reception, I wouldn't invite anyone to the bachlorette party who isn't going to be invited to the reception.

    I agree with Palmettogirl.  Since there will be an at home reception upon their return, just make sure that those invited to the bachelorette pary will be invited to the reception.  I too am having a destination wedding (about 40 ppl going) and then will have a big reception when I get back (200-250 ppl).  My bachelorette party does include ppl not invited to Jamaica, but everyone invited is invited to the back home reception.  Good luck and have fun!
