My Aunt has graciously offered to host a bridal shower for me. I live in Texas, but all the wedding festivities will be in Georgia where I am from. My in-laws are from France and are coming for the wedding the week of. I want to wait until the week of the wedding so that they can be there (even though they aren’t too nice to me, another story), but I feel like I will be stressed doing it then. My grandma would also be able to make it if the shower was the week of. Will having it wedding week be too stressful or should I have it earlier and just miss having them there?

Only you can gauge how stressed your going to be that week. If it means a lot to have your Future In-Laws and your Grandma there, then waiting makes sense. The only thing I will say is: just make sure your Aunt is on board with the timing and won’t be stressed out by it.

I would have it earlier. That week was stressful anyway and Bridal Showers aren’t exactly relaxing. Also, from a guests point of view you’d be giving two gifts in the same week. Not that they wouldn’t be getting you two gifts anyway but most people wait until the last minute and its just a lot of expenses at once.

I wouldn’t have it that week. Most guests will be miffed to have to buy you two gifts in one week, so they will likely only buy you one gift.
