So I just started an online registry and we’re trying to set a date for my bridal shower. My Maid/Matron of Honor has been asking me for a date but I don’t know how far out to plan this? How long before the wedding are you having your bridal shower?

For a wedding on August 4, I would recommend doing the shower sometime maybe in June or the first week of July.

I don’t think there are any real rules for when you should have the bridal shower…. i’ve been to really early ones (3+ months), then i’ve been to ones that were only a few weeks before the wedding.
I think anytime between the end of May to the beginning of July should be good for an early-mid august wedding. I’m starting by checking to see what dates my bridesmaids already have prior committments, and figuring out a date from there.

We’re planning my shower and bachelorette for June 30th… I have 2 close friends due the end of July so wanted to have it earlier to beat their delivery dates, and have another close friend getting married August 11th so also didn’t want to compete with her dates.

We are having my bridal shower on June 23. My bachalorette party is TBA, but probably in late july or early august.

Our wedding is the end of August, and my mom and aunt are planning my wedding shower. They are planning for sometime in July, I just don’t know the date yet.

Well I think we have decided that our bachelor/bachelorette party will be July 14th (because we have family and friends coming in from out of town that weekend for other family events!) and my bridal shower will be either June 30 or July 7th.

I think mine is a little early but it was the date that worked for those planning it. My wedding is August 4th and my shower is May 19th.

@Ballet513 – we’re date and shower twins!
I’m actually having 3 showers. First (FI’s family) is April 21, second (friends!) is May 19 and third (FMIL’s friends – seriously) is in June. Best part of that one? They can’t remember what date it is because they were all drinking when they picked it. My bachelorette party is June 22-24.

How I wish to have a bridal shower!! Here they don’t have Bridal showers, they have Hen nights/Weekends… booze up and crazy things they do to the bride. I went to so many bridal showers living in Canada and move here and don’t get one….

the second is TBD in June or July
the third will be a week before the wedding on August 4th
