So my FI just got a new job in North Carolina, and we have to push our wedding up to February 23 instead of May! Yikes!
February 17th is pretty much the only day we can do a small bridal shower, but it’s one week before the actual wedding. Should I just forget doing a bridal shower completely and hope the 40 people who are going to be invited to the wedding show up? Or should I still do a bridal shower and that way pepole have the option to go to one or the other or both?

Bump. I need help! I’m kind of panicking here.

Personally I would just have the wedding.
I don’t know much about wedding showers…is the purpose for those who can’t make the wedding? I didn’t really think so. I thought it was for presents in which case those who are invited to the wedding but can’t come could still send a gift.

I think it’s a lot to ask someone to give up two consecutive weekends to celebrate your marriage.
I also think you are already surprising people with a date change, so it’s best to keep it simple.

I’d skip the shower. Go out and have a girls night or something. But save yourself and your family the stress of planning another event when you are already stressed about the date change for the wedding.
My philosophy is keep it simple! 🙂

@andielovesj: yeah I thought that about giving up two weekends in a row.
