- Wedding: August 2011
Hi all. So here’s the deal… my FMIL was planning on having my bridal shower at her house, but we’re not sure when yet. I have four bridesmaids total, two of which are local and two who live very far away. The two who live close are happy to help with the shower whenever, and the two who live far away (my maid and matron of honor) won’t be in town until about a week and a half before the wedding. They would both LOVE to help with / attend the shower, and of course I really want them there too, but I’m afraid that’s cutting it close, and I don’t want to take up too much of my BM’s time right before the wedding because they both work evening/night/weekend jobs so they’d need to take time off. Also, FMIL is hosting the rehearsal dinner for 30-40 people at her home as well and I don’t want to overwhelm her with too many parties.
My wedding is Sunday, August 7th, so here’s what the plan would look like…
Saturday the week before the wedding: Shower
Wednesday or Thursday before the wedding: Bachelorette party
Saturday, day before wedding: Bridesmaids brunch & Rehearsal dinner
It seems like too much all at once. =/ But I do really want my MOH’s to be able to go. What should I do??
