Bachelorette party etiquette dictates that only people who are invited to the wedding should be invited to the bachelorete party. If you are only having a very small wedding, inviting only family or very close friends, it is acceptable to invite a wider range of people to the bachelorette party, but be warned that anyone attending might put pressure on to be invited to the wedding as well.
The mothers of the bride and groom don't have to be invited to the bachelorette party, but if you do invite family it is considered polite to invite family from both sides. If it is likely to make the bride uncomfortable to have her soon-to-be mother-in-law at her last night of fun, but she feels she has to be invited, the bachelorette party can be held in two parts – a well-behaved dinner, leading to a wild night out when Mom leaves.
