    My one and only bridal shower was the day before our wedding and I LOVED it!  I had to travel to IN for our wedding and all of DH’s family had to travel too so we didn’t want to have to asked people to travel multiple times.  By having it the day before the wedding, everyone from both sides of the family along with my friends were already in town and I got to celebrate with everyone!  It was a great way to kick-off our wedding weekend!

    I went to a shower the day before the wedding before, and the bride seemed to be enjoying herself. Her mom lives OOT so it was the only time she’d be able to be there. I do think it was kind of a lot for the guests though b/c we had to buy two gifts for one weekend, it gets pretty expensive.

    @SuperBrook: Normally I would say it’s too much. But if you are like the PP and have lots of guests traveling then maybe it would be sense. I personally think its a lot to ask of your guests in one week. Thats 2 gifts which might be tough for some.

    For me it would be too much. Would you have the shower the same day as the rehearsal dinner?
