My shower is set to start at 1030am. I personally think this is a little too early, but that’s the time my hostess set it for. Don’t they usually start around noon or 1? What time is/was your shower set for? How long did it last?

Woah! 10:30?! Personally as a guest if I got an invite for a 10:30 bridal shower my reaction would be a bit of “oh god, what am I in for?!” because I would think the event would take up the WHOLE day. Most showers I’ve been to have started at 1:00 or 2:00 and been done by 5:00. Did the hostess of your shower say why it’s starting so early?

Mine was last weekend and was from 2-5. It was a perfect amount of time for everyone to eat, mingle and open gifts.

The hostess wants it that early to work around her daughters “nap time” routine. She hopes everyone is gone before 1pm when her daughter is suppossed to go down. REALLY trying not to be bridezilla about this. Happy thoughts, happy thoughts…

Wow that is really early. Can she do it after her daughter’s naptime?

Are you serious? She sort of sounds like my sister. Some parents are routine people, I am not one of them…. Happy thoughts, happy thoughts…. Could she have her parents take care of her daughter for the afternoon or something?

Mines starting around 9am since it is being planned pretty poorly! Its the day before the wedding and being thrown together this week (2 weeks prior). I’m not sure my out of town guests will love the early wake up but there isn’t any other time!

Most showers are in the middle of the afternoon at a non-meal time.

Well I don’t think I’ve ever been to a shower that early. If I was, I might be taken back a little.
However, I don’t think that 10:30 is that bad. It would make sense and be cool, if it was planned as a nice breakfast buffet type event. And served mimosas. Also, it gets guests out by 1pm. I think at least some of the guests might appreciate having the rest of their day to do what they need to. Events that take place in the middle of the day can sometimes ruin plans for the morning and evening.
I think it will be fine. But if there is a way to push it back just a half hour to 11am, I think that would make a world of difference.

Mine is starting @ 11am and thats because we wanted to have Brunch. We oly have the room until 2pm and I have a wedding @ 3pm to be at so I need to make sure are moving along!

I agree-Pushing it to 11am would make a world of a difference. Mimosas & breakfast type foods is a good idea!
