How does everyone feel about this? I've always pictured BPs with close friends of the bride- what about mom's and FMILs?
Not my style. I did do a separate "bachelorette" night with my mom, FMIL, and two FSIL's (both about 10 years older than me). We went to The Cheesecake Factory and to a comedy club.
My regular bachelorette was only my WP and a few close friends.
I think it depends on what kind of women they are and what kind of party you're having.
For the BP I'm planning, we are going to do lunch with the FMIL and the MOB, then afterwards they'll go home and we'll go do our crazy stuff for the rest of the day.
If you don't want to upset your mom or FMIL you could do something like that.
Edited for grammer
Im from TX so I'm planning on doing my b-party down there- she asked to come which just threw me off guard- I've always pictured it as a close friends only type event- but I'm her MOH in her upcoming wedding and I would hate to hurt her as we do have a fairly close relationship. Made further complicated by the fact that FI's dad is going to his b-party in Key West so it may be somewhat expected? I would love to do something separate with the moms but since we'll be in TX unless she comes to the whole thing I think that might be a bit awkward...I have time to think about it I was just curious what other people's general thoughts were but as Addie pointed out...every situation is so different...
