    Typically no, I was at one last year where MOB and her sister (bride's aunt) were invited. They stayed in a separate Airbnb, went to dinner and drinks with us, but otherwise did their own thing and treated it like a girls weekend away. Because this MOB is very fun and relaxed it was fine and the bride wanted to invite the , but I would NOT want my mother at my bachelorette personally.

    Are you comfortable with your mum watching you drink out of a penis straw?

    My mom and fmil will be at the dinner part of the night. Then they'll go home and the rest of us will go out. I wanted them to be included for at least part of it but not all night. (I also have underage bridesmaids and wanted them to be able to come to part too)

    Lol my mom was surprised when I told her she wasn't invited to the bachelorette party! I told her that she was invited to the bridal shower, but would absolutely not be seeing my wearing a veil with light up wieners on it!!

    Up to you. My mother won't be at mine, but I went to a bachelorette party for FH's cousin where the moms and all the aunts were invited (including my FMIL). It was a riot- they were all for drinking through penis straws.

    My mom used to be a stripper so when we had my bachelorette party for my first wedding, she was all over it. She had us doing blow job shots and everything.

    She and I don't see eye to eye and won't be in attendance for my upcoming wedding.

    Usually no, but I have been to a few where the moms/aunts were invited for the first part of the day. For one, they were invited to the spa and dinner, then left while everyone else went out and stayed in a hotel. For another, they just came to dinner.

    Typically no. I've seen a few cases where the party went wine tasting during the day and a few older women (MOB, aunts, etc) tagged along but left before the night activities.

    My mom is like one of my best friends and we are very close and will go out for drinks and happy hour but my friends and I drink way too much more than I am comfortable drinking with my mother around. Also, no clue what inappropriate activities or props will be included.

    Typically no, but it depends on what you're doing.

    My sisters took me out for dinner/ drinks and one of those paint and sip nights. My mom and FMIL were invited and we had a nice time.

    My mom and her sisters will be invited to mine. My family likes to drink and party so it will not be weird with them there. Plus, I'm not into the whole strippers and penis everywhere thing so if wouldn't matter anyways.

    I've been to only 1 bachelorette party where the moms were invited. It was a paint and wine night and it was nice.

    My mom will not be at mine. I know she would love to go, but I am definitely not comfortable with mom there while I'm out with girls my age drinking and partying.

    My DH's stepdad and one of his GM's dad's went to his, but it wasn't like a crazypants night at the rippers. they just all drank a buttload of scotch and watched sports. i think it depends on the tone of the evening. (my mom was nowhere near mine and i was very very happy and thankful about that, haha)

    I think it depends on the relationship you have with your parents. For me, having my mom at my bachelorette is a hard pass.

    Not usually but it's happening at mine. I don't care, she is the one I can count on to make it a party to be honest...
