This was accidentally planed, my bridal shower was planned two weeks ago and my bachelorette was planned months ago. When I told my maids the bridal sower had already been paid for. The bachelorette was supposed to be a surprise but one of my maids accidentaly spilled the beans.
What do I do? I want to have fun at my bachelorette (and knowing my maids it will be) but I dont want to feel terrible for my shower! Besides the regular avoiding hangovers (which thankfully I don’t get very bad ones) maneuvers that we all learned in college, what else can I do?

Umm nothing? Or move one of the parties. Sounds like you dont want to or can’t do that though.

Make your shower later in the day?

minipenguin: What time is the bridal shower? If it is later in the day, you will likely be fine if you don’t go overboard with partying/drinking.
If you can’t move either event, then you should just monitor yourself and not stay out too late/drink too much. You can still have fun without being plastered drunk/out until 7am. It’s just a decision you have to make. Figure out what you want to prioritize and go with that.

I have the same problem. To man schedules and the only way it works for everyone is actually to do the bridal shower (my family/friends side) then bachelorette party that night then the next day a couples shower (fh side/friends). I am going to be tired!!!

We purposely planned mine that way because one of my bridesmaids is travelling 7 hours one way to attend. Bachelorette party is on a Saturday night and the Couples shower is the next day at 2 pm. I told my girls I didn’t want anything wild and crazy and we don’t drink often, so I’m not worried about being hungover.

What time is your shower? I had a surprise bachelorette the night before my shower and had my shower at 2pm. I didn’t feel great, that’s for sure. But having it later in the day made it so the majority of my hangover had passed.

minipenguin: Maybe just start the bachelorette as early as possible? (you don’t have to wait til 9m to finally go out) and start the bridal shower as late as possible?

Thanks so much bees, I’m going to see if I can move the bridal shower to later in the day, honestly I hadn’t even considered it. I just found out about the bachelorette date so I was kinda stumped/hopeless. Really appreciate all the advice.
