Who is typically invited to the bachelor and bachelorette party?

Generally, the bachelorette party consists of the bridesmaids, close female friends, and female family members. The equivalent goes for bachelor parties (groomsmen, close male friends, and male family members). In-laws are sometimes invited as well. Be sure to figure out the appropriateness of all the activities planned before going ahead and inviting your fiancé’s parents or younger family members.
