I did it. Had my shower around 1:00pm in my hometown, then drove 2 hours back to the town I live in and had the bachleorette party that night. Exausting, but doable! We had to have everything while my one BM/FSIL was in town.

I don’t see why it would be a mjor issue to have both on the same day. Can you takk to the folks who you want to be there and see how they feel?

Sounds like a good idea to me!

I had my bachelorette party the night before the bridal shower because it was the only thing that would work.  WORST IDEA EVER!!  I got over my hangover 30 min. before the shower at 2pm and still had some symptoms which made opening presents very… difficult and odd feeling, lol.  Too much movement involved in unwrapping and spinning my head around the room to find who gave the present!

I am totally having shower and bachelorette the same day! It is just the easiest and most convenient thing (although possibly draining).  We are having a couples shower and have ppl travelling at the very minimum 30 min and max 6 hours to attend. IMO it would be unfair to ask the women attending the bachelorette party to take another day out of their lives to travel 1-6 hours to come to that when we could do it all in one trip. So, we are having shower at 1pm on Saturday and then having a few rooms booked at nearby hotel to kick back and get ready for the shananigans that night!!! LOL

You shouldn’t be involved in throwing pre-wedding parties for youself.  Looks like bridesmaids and mom dropped the ball.  I’d arrange a “girls night” and just go out with some friends.

I’m doing it. It’s all the same people so I thought.. why not. We’re going to Atlantic City for the night and will have the bridal shower in the daytime and festivities at night. My friends were happy, only taking two of their summer weekends including the wedding 🙂

@anghp:  I think brides should be allowed to have a say in the scheduling of the shower/bachelorette, no?

@jmwed12:  I did this and it worked out really well for everyone. With how busy everyone’s schedule is having one day to set a side was easier for my group. I hope you have a great shower and bach party.

I think its best to do it all in one day, then you’re only asking people that are invited to both to take one day, especially if people are coming in for the event. I plan to have a nice casual bridal shower in the afternoon, then dinner and drinks with the girls that evening.

I did it! It was an emotional and amazing day…. plan to get lots of sleep before and after!! Nice for everyone attending both too because they just have to book off one day from their lives!

Mine were on the same day.  Several people came from out of town, so it was the easiest way to coordinate.
