I say do it when you want to, luckily I’m not having a shower but I will say I have spent alot of time and money on friends and families events and i know it shouldn’t matter but I really hope they take that into consideration come next year at my wedding. People often don’t understand how much time and effort it takes to throw these parties and if I were in your position I would just tell my mom to deal with it. Pick a day and stick to it otherwise you’ll drive yourself insane.

You definitely need to sit with your mom and explain that it’ll be impossible to find a date everyone can agree on. I have a similar thing going on with my bachelorette party. No one had the same schedule – other weddings, work trips, family vacations. I told suggested she do it on a Friday (instead of Sat) and told her who was important – my BMs and her. Otherwise, it would have been too complicated for her to try to accomodate all my other friends. Some people just can’t make it. They don’t dislike you any more for it. If the day is an issue, why not suggest another day like Sat instead of the typical Sunday?

But I would tell her who it is important to consider as far as schedules go from your perspective. Like, it’s important that your mom, sisters, BMs are available. Maybe a grandma or specific cousins. I think it should be a date that is convient to those people involved in the wedding or close to you. If the rest of them want to “ignore” you, then that’s a poo-poo on them and don’t let it bother you. Yeah, it sucks, but we all know you can’t please everyone.

Sounds like you are already negotiating with mom and the fam. Glad things are going smooth for your FI’s side’s shower!
