    For the stag and hen nights is it the done thing to invite parents in law? Like should my H2B have my dad at his stag do and should i be inviting MIL 2 be to my hen? I'm fairly certain she won't be wanting to go as she is in her mid 50's but I fully expect my dad to want to go to H2B's stag as he is only in his forties and obviously isn't ready to take it slow just yet.

    advice would be fab thanks :)

    It's totally up to you and your oh! My OH is having my dad and his dad on his but I didn't have fmil or my step mum at mine. Though I had an early one due to my BM living all over the world lol. I'm having a more low key afternoon tea nearer the the time that I'm inviting fmil to and oh auntie. Then I'm having a meal in belfast where I'm from for step mum, aunties etc xx

    I don't think there is a "done thing", like Leanne said it's totally up to you and your OH who you invite. My OH invited my dad, step brother and uncle to his stag do, not because he thought he should but because he wanted them there. I only invited my bms to my main hen do which was a weekend away in Bournemouth, but had a second hen back home to which I invited my in-laws to - was just drinks xx

    My OH is going with just his BM and two other friends, his Dad is taking them to the airport and having a quick drink before they fly.
    I am having my mum on my hen do as she invited herself and considering she bought my wedding dress I couldnt say no. I also have SIL coming along.

    my H2B doesn't have any family members other than his mum for me to invite but i have many male relatives that would be open to go to his stag. i think we're gonna limit to just my dad or else it will be crazy

    I invited MIL to mine and despite thinking she wouldn't, she actually did come along and she loved it. My husband didn't have a stag do. Invite who you want there, it's your party :)

    Invite who you want. I think its nice if you invite the in-laws though sort of a bonding/accepting into new family thing.

    It's entirely up to you.

    My dad didn't get invited to hubby's stag, nor did my FIL.

    My SIL wasn't invited to my hen (MIL passed away), nor was my mum.
