    Unless Easter is like a HUGE deal in your families, I see no problem with it at all. Folks who want to celebrate can still do so on Easter day, being at a shower the day before shouldn’t mess with that. And as long as his aunt isn’t running your bridal shower I don’t think you have any reason to feel bad about that aspect. It only takes a few hours out of her day, she’ll still have plenty of time to prepare for guests.

    I say do it. If the aunt gets upset, gently explain to her why. Hopefully she will understand.

    My friend did this.  It was VERY convient for me too!  I could go to the shower, and then spend the night at my parents for Easter the next day.

    I think this would be fine. My family and I are very religious, and we don’t do anything major the day before. Go ahead!

    I don’t see why it would be an issue, and I think most people should be understanding of you living far away and trying to make it convenient. I would go for it

    I think as long as you are prepared that some people will not want/be able to make it then it’s fine.

    Lots of people including me are out of town for the entire weekend, so I wouldn’t be able to attend.  But as long as you weren’t mad about it, I’d just decline.

    I think it would be convenient, especially for other family members or friends who may be traveling back for the holiday anyways (or will now because you are having a shower). I say go for it!
