Would this be inconsiderate?
FI and I recently moved 200 miles from our families. We’re getting married in June. I’ve been thinking about when we could have the shower. Our bach/ette parties will be on Memorial weekend.
I work in education so I’ll have the week before Easter off. And since we would be going home for Easter anyway, it would be nice to kill two birds with one stone and have our shower the Saturday before.
Do you think this would be inconsiderate to do?
We usually spend Easter with FI’s family at his Aunt’s house. I would feel bad for asking her to come to the shower the day before she’s to have the family over.
What do you think?

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!

@andielovesj: Everyone who will be invited to the shower will either be in town already or will be traveling in town for Easter, so we shouldn’t have that to worry about. Thanks for bringing it up though!
