Kacie209:  Hmmm… if it were me I would stay, but probably just go enjoy the park on my own during the break. In life, sometimes we have random break time between things and we are adults who can find ways to occupy ourselves. I am an introvert, so I would appreciate the time to recharge inbetween parties! And having them at different times helps make them feel like separate events. So I think your timing sounds great!

My sister is doing the same thing for my parties, since she’s coming from out of town 🙂 My shower is at 11am (I am assuming ending by 1pm) and then my bachelorette party starts at 5pm. Everyone will go home in between. I specifically asked for that because I will need a break from all the people and socializing 🙂 I also thought it would be weird to have them run into each other because not all of my shower guests are invited to the bachelorette.

So the bachelorette party starts at the same place as the shower? I would probably stay between the two parties unless I was specifically told that the shower ended at 3 and I needed to leave.

This reminds me of a wedding gap… If I live 20-30 minutes away it would be stupid to go home because it would be a waste of gas so what else am I supposed to do for two hours? I think you should be prepared for people to stay for that two hour gap.

I think if you want people to leave you should consider having a larger gap between the two events- maybe four hours?

I think a break is necessary, especially if you dont have the same guests attending each event. Could get awkward if Great Aunt Sally was invited to the shower and stayed around for the bachelorette party but there wasnt enough seats/food/paint/whatever for her.
