My wedding is July 3rd and we did the bridal shower May 23rd (so about 5-6 weeks before the wedding).  I personally would pick the beginning of February over November just because 5 months before is a lot.

I think usually showers are 6-8 weeks before the wedding. IMO a shower 5 months ahead is more like an engagement party.

My bridal shower is tomorrow for a 7/31 wedding. I think 4-8 weeks ahead of time is plenty. Surprised they’re already thinking about a shower for a March wedding!

My shower is the day before my wedding and people are really excited that they only have to travel once and can make both events!  That said, 1-2 months prior would probably be standard.

Mine will be 3 weeks before. I’d say stick within 4-8 weeks prior to the date.
