We’re having trouble finding a date for my FDIL’s bridal shower before her July 24th wedding. We were thinking of a Sunday brunch in May because a good friend of mine has offered the garden of her wedding venue to host the party. The bride is afraid that a Sunday party will be a hardship for some of her Out of Town friends so has requested a Saturday instead. That means my friend can’t host the event because she has weddings there on Saturdays. The Maid/Matron of Honor (my other daughter-in-law) asked me if she could host it in my backyard which is fine with me. But when we try to come up with a Saturday, we have 3 family graduations (one is the brides!) on 3 different Saturdays, holidays such a Memorial weekend , Mother’s Day, Father’s Day, the Bachelorette party weekend, and the MOH’s impending baby! So we are thinking of pushing the shower back into April (is that too early?) My question is, is it appropriate to have a bridal shower before the wedding invitations have been sent? I think the wedding invitations will be sent out May 1st. The Save-The-Date Cards were sent last week so the people who will get a shower invite will at least know about the wedding.
