Kacie209:  I had my shower in April and my wedding is in early June. My bach party is closer to the wedding on Memorial day weekend. No one seemed to think my shower was too early.

Kacie209:  My shower is May, Bachelorette June, Wedding July.

FI went to a bachelor party in SEPTEMBER and the wedding is THIS WEEKEND. We thought that was so strange…..

Well, technically, you don’t plan either of these.  These are events that your bridal party typically will host.  You should pass the buck to them to pick a date and decide when it’s a good time to send out invitations.

Bridal showers are generally held about two months prior to the wedding, but I would say the early August date is fine too. A bachelorette can be held at any point, based on when the girls can get together!

I think you are fine.  I’m having my bach party 7/18 weekend and my shower 8/2 and my wedding is 9/6.  Do whatever works best for the girls you want to be at the parties!!

Kacie209:  I’m getting married the day after you, and my bridal shower & bach party will be either the 2nd or 3rd weekend in August, so I don’t think you’re too early at all!
