    @MrsN14:  I had my shower one month before the wedding. It just worked out best because all the other dates before it were either Easter or March Break. I dont think it really matters when the shower is held in the proximity to the wedding date I think it just deoends on what works best for people

    If that’s the only time all your BMs can be there, I think it’s fine. If my BMs are able to throw me one, I imagine it will be in January as well. It’s right after the holidays, but my wedding is March so there’s not much you can do.

    • Wedding: September 2013 - Franklin Plaza

    My shower is exactly one week from today (YAY!) and my wedding is at the end of September.  I feel like everything for me has been nicely spaced out.  We got engaged just shy of a year ago (June 30), so my shower is basically 1 year from our engagement.  I didn’t see an issue with that at all.  I think it’s nice since I keep getting more and more excited the closer the wedding gets so I’m happy to have my shower and the bachelorette party between now and then to keep me distracted.  🙂

    I dont think it matters. However, for guests that may be a bit much bc that is during the holidays. I personally hate having to go to showers or other gift-giving events during the holidays (dec/jan) and I may not be able to give as nice of a gift. 

    My shower is less than 2 months before my wedding. My friend got married in Hawaii and most of her BMs are from NJ or the LA area and they threw her a shower 2 days before her wedding bc nobody would see her before then.

    • Wedding: July 2013

    Mine is TECHNICALLY less than one month before the wedding. June 22 and getting married July 20. It was going to be in May, but the timing for everyone and the venue worked out better to have it in June.

    I think if you can get as many people (that you really want there, ex. BM’s) then have it when you can! Time doesn’t matter 🙂
