Future Sis In Laws At Bachelorette Party?


Recommended Posts

I was wondering how many of you have invited/will invite your future sister-in-law(s) to your bachelorette party. I felt obligated to since they're both in my bridal party and we are within a few years of each other, but I really don't like the idea of extra eyes on me in a bar. To those who are in a similar situation, how are you dealing with it?

Mine is invited and she also came dress shopping with me! She's not a party animal like me (I drink more than her) but she's not judgmental of it. It's a party to PARTY so I think you are safe!

 

That said, personally for me, if they are in your bridal party they should be invited. I think I'd be offended if someone asked me to be in their bridal party but didn't want me at all events. I thought that was a given for bridal party members.

 

Just something to think about :) good luck.

I guess I don't understand why they wouldn't be invited. Unless they're underage and unable to attend some adult events they should be invited/included in all of the events (because they're part of the bridal party).

Yeah not sure why they wouldn't be invited... ESPECIALLY if part of your bridal party- but even if not, I would never think of not inviting them! Is there something specific that has your troubled about their attending? Is there a reason the "extra eyes on you" will make you uncomfortable? I think it would be really sad for them if they learned you had a party and didn't invite them!

I think they should be invited. I don't see the big deal about them being at the bar with you. They know you're going to drink and probably so will they. I don't think you'd do something that you wouldn't do if your fiancé was there so then it won't be a problem having them around. My sisters in law are Jehovah Witnesses so they're quite conservative and they don't go to clubs or drink. I doubt they'll be there but I'm inviting them anyway. Who knows, they might surprise me and come out

I agree!  I don't think there is any way around it. You might feel more comfortable without that sense that somebody is watching you.  people should understand that it's a bachelorette party and not to take things too seriously.  

 

that being said, I'm keeping mine on the conservative side because the last thing I want are issues or gossips.

My FI has no sisters, so I fortunately didn't have to do that.  I did invite some of my fiance's friend's wives to be polite (and we have become friends), but I will admit I think I had a LOT more fun because they didn't come haha.. Not that I did anything at all and not that we aren't friendly, but I did enjoy being with my girifriends

They were invited from the get-go, I'm just not keen on having them there. One is FI's sister, and one is FI's sister in law. I didn't really want his sis in law in the BP, but it was the right thing to do for a number of reasons so I just went with it. But her attitude stinks, so much to the point that FI said that if I wanted to dis-invite her he would totally understand (I didn't do it). And it is doubtful that I'll ever have a genuine friendship with his sister unfortunately, which is really a shame because I like her a lot, but his sis in law is the cause of that. The three of us get along just fine and we're friendly when we're all together, but we're not friends. 

 

Plus I can't get something out of my head that his sis in law said. This is a second marriage for me and a first for my FI. So sis in law said (right in front of me when a convo about her friend was happening) is that 'people don't deserve to be celebrated when it's a second time around.' Totally fine if she feels that way, but saying it in front of me got me all messed up.

You know what, this is your wedding, your celebration, do what feel best for you.  If you will have more fun with just your friends then keep your party small.  You mentioned that they don't really party anyway so maybe they won't even come.

Clearly she doesn't mind her mouth or your feelings, so really why ruin  your night. 

 

A second marriage most definitely deserves to be celebrated!!

    • What are you doing for your wedding's road signs? so that your visitors will know where to turn to enter the area. Any pictures? I had created some road signs with a nearby signage business. However, I want to create 2 additional signs. Please provide images so that I may alter my design.
    • The two people who matters the most in this situation? You and your partner. It is nice to get an outside opinion but if you have too much of it? It will get messy! I am replying you my response after that has happened to me with my wedding. Although it is quite hard, do not think of the negative opinions. The people who will turn up to your wedding? You will always cherish them even more! That is what has happened with me because my friendship with the people who attended my wedding has improved so much more that I know I can rely on them and they can rely on me. It is disappointing that people will not attend your wedding but it is their loss, not yours. At the end of the day, when they see pictures and videos of your big day they will definitely regret missing out on such event. I am waiting to deal with the aftermath of my wedding from my so called friends, if they say anything they will get an earful! Happy planning, your big day will be worth it! Keep us up to date!
    • Wow, I cannot believe it's been over a year since I last posted! Better keep everyone up to date as everything ended up positive in the end! So, let's start with the situation with W. From my previous post, I have serious consideration removing him from the groomsmen because of the hurtful things he has said to me. Not too after my second post, I asked him once again whether he wants to be part of the groomsmen. The response was around the lines of "I need more solid information". This was before the restriction were lifted. Then he said it was down to finances yet again, even though he said he could have made it but because of what A said, W didn't commit no more. As W was being difficult, I decided to drop him as a groomsmen altogether and replaced him with someone else. Plan B was already in motion and tbh, I wish I did this first to avoid any hassle. Everyone who got invited in plan B all committed themselves to the wedding!  The situation with A is this. I was feeling sad that I was losing this friendship and that spark with him was gone. By the time it was gone, A was "ready" to meet up with me to discuss life and the wedding. When I said I lost spark with him, I really did. I knew that he was ready to meet up with me because it was convenient for him. For example, he wanted to meet up with me because he was driving past my house or was in the area visiting his relative. If he was not doing those things he would not want to meet up with me. Needless to say, every time he kept asking, I just said I was busy. I think deep down something was not right between me and A but he does not want to acknowledge it. I know that W had FOMO (Fear Of Missing Out) because that's what he is like. Around the end of last year, rather than messaging me about the DW he went behind my back and asked my SO. He was scared of asking me because he knows if he asked me, I would literally get angry at him. He's nosey and was happy enough to be part of the groomsmen but he listened to A. W didn't asked once but twice to mg SO. My SO just said that she was busy and should ask me about the wedding, not her. W did messagee but not about the wedding plans. I felt this was a sly move by his part. If anything not having A and W there was a blessing in disguise. I met up with the other 4 groomsmen over one weekend and it turns out it was the most fun we all have had for a while. It was as if we continued from the previous conversations in the past as if nothing has changed. I am so glad and proud of this group of groomsmen and glad the other 2 dropped out. The suit fitting went really well and we hung out again to see whether the suits altered fitted or not.  Unfortunately my SO UK group, 5 out of 6 declined the invite. Only 1 accepted it. The other 5 had reasons ranging from good ones to poorer ones 😅 As long one of them turned up then it was good enough for us. My SO's bridesmaids also were amazing. No problems caused whatsoever and they were really excited that our wedding was abroad too! To make things work out before our DW, myself and SO planned out 2 weekends for both groomsmen and bridesmaids to hang out before the DW. We did this so we would not encounter any awkwardness for the first time in DW. Lo and behold, everyone got to know each other and we really are happy that the wedding party weekend went smoothly. I will keep this ambiguous because I do not want A and his group finding out. I got married to my SO this year. What time and month? I will leave this intentionally blank. The wedding itself was everything we have expected. The wedding planner was amazing. The photographer was also amazing too, so glad we went for him. The sneak peak photos are absolutely great, couldn't imagine that the photos turned out like that. The good itself was okay could be better but could be worse. The first dance went relatively well although my SO managed to cock up s move which only I know hahahaha. The wedding ceremony itself went really quickly. I was a bag of nerves to which one of the groomsmen bought the groomsmen a shot each to calm everyone down. It did calm me down for a little bit but the nerves started again with the speeches. I got emotional throughout the speeches. I was not expecting the tear up with the best man speech at all. My speech was meant for my SO but for some reason everyone in the room also cried as well 😂 The all night dancing and fun was the best bit. When every serious part was done, I was able to stop being nervous! The fun went through the whole night and I can see everyone really enjoyed themselves. It was as if myself and SO correctly guess that lockdown restrictions would end. Everyone was thankful that they managed to take part in the DW because they all have been stranded in the country for 3 years! Do I regret having a DW? Hell no! Although it was a smaller party everything was all under control. Everyone had a great time!  More information about my UK group. Some of them congratulated us which was nice to hear. Those congratulated us, I can keep contact. They knew it was difficult coming to DW. At least they are mature enough to say something about it and they did not get the invite. On the other hand, A and W kept constantly monitoring my account for updates along with my SO. It got to the point that W really FOMO that he I followed our stories/posts. A on the other hand is completely out of order. He was invited to DW but made it really uncomfortable to me that he was not happy with DW. During that week, he went on holiday to Spain. I get that Spain is much more cheaper than my DW but it still is annoying. A also said before that he has a few weddings to attend during our DW month. He has not attended any weddings which makes me think that he has lied to me. A and W has lied to me saying it was costly for them to come to my DW. They have both bought PlayStation 5 and went to many designer outlets. If they are so stumped on money why go and buy things? It just shows that they are not good friends at all. Overall good DW. I do not regret it one bit because I know if I did it in the UK, the experience will be a lot different. The UK definitely not as scenic as my DW! 🤣    
    • Hi ! Myself and partner got engaged 7 months ago and we quite quickly asked our friends who we wanted in our wedding party (e.g bridesmaids, MOH and best men etc) who all agreed. After searching many English venues we have decided that we want to marry abroad, our dream is Mexico. We have been and priced this up today and we are incredibly happy. So we have put this forward to our friends and family who we really want there and now we are facing issues. My MOH and my partners Best man are together with a child, they now will not come unless we change to Spain or Greece. My brother, his wife and nephew can only come in one set week which isn't the time we want to marry and also will not come to Mexico. And both our Grandmother's won't come to Mexico.   What do we do? Do we carry on and go to Mexico with the people who will come or do we change our dreams and go to Spain or Greece?  Thoughts please, I'm getting to the point where I don't even want to marry as I'm fed up of friends and family ruining our ideas and dreams with their opinions. 
    • What purpose does a ring actually have? I think they look nice, but to me, wearing a ring doesn’t mean a damn thing. I’m engaged. I’m in a happy, healthy and strong relationship. And to be fully honest if you are ever in a relationship that you’d be willing to risk because of the price of an engagement ring, your partner could do better.
