My Maid/Matron of Honor is planning my bridal shower and the date will be before I even send out my invitations. Should I get my invites out before the bridal shower invites? Or does it not matter? We sent out Save the Dates to all that were invited so it won’t be the first they hear of the wedding.

I don’t think it matters, my Maid/Matron of Honor sent out my shower invites before our actual invites went out and I’ve seen other couples do this as well.

My shower invites went out before the wedding invites. Your Maid/Matron of Honor should send them whenever is appropriate based on the date of the shower.

I don’t think it matters. I have already had two bridal showers thrown for me and my wedding invitations are being sent out at the end of June.

I think it is perfectly fine to send the wedding invites whenever you originally planned and not change the schedule based on the shower. You sent the Save-The-Date Cards so people know when the wedding is.

Doesn’t matter! Invites for both of my showers will go out before wedding invites.

We just sent out our wedding invitations (and just received them) last week. My bridal shower was almost a month ago! I was in the process of designing the invitations but hadnt received them yet so I wouldnt worry about it!!!

You will have some people (generally older generations) complain, but really it’s fine etiquette-wise. You don’t want to send your wedding invites out too early anyway!
