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?
