My Bridesmaid or Best Man is throwing me two showers in one weekend (two different sides of the family lol)! The 28th and the 29th! My wedding will be about 3 weeks away at that point!

Mine was just under two months before the wedding. 

After I posted a thread almost identical to this one of yours, my Fiance texted my Maid/Matron of Honor without my knowledge to see if she had heard anything, and she almost immediately called me to say that she was planning to host one but kept forgetting to mention it.  That was four or four and a half months before the wedding.

Mine was around 40 days before the wedding.

Mine is in 2 days and my wedding is in 10 days so a week before!

The main reason is because one of my bridesmaids is coming over from Australia and doesn’t get here until Friday so it will be this Saturday.

Maybe ask your Maid/Matron of Honor if she needs a list of people you want there?  My sister is my Maid/Matron of Honor, and lives 8 hours away so she doesn’t really know my work friends, FI’s auntys and female cousins etc so I gave her a list of everyone I want there and she took it from there.

@MeganTacky2247: I am just having the people I am close to.  We live 10 mins from a lot of FI’s cousins and auntys and see them weekly, whereas he has other cousins who live hours away that I never see so they are not coming!

Basically all the females I am comfortable with without Fiance around – or ones that would call/text me without going through FI!

Having multiple parties actually.

3 months out: family in my home town

2 months out: folks from work

1 month out (jack and jill version): friends and family where we live that can’t make the wedding

So for me the guest list won’t overlap, but allows everyone their chance to celebrate with us

My wedding is June, and I think I’ll be having my shower the end of March. My SIL is having her baby in April, so I don’t want to risk the birth being near my shower, and her sister is also pregnant and will be having her shower in May, and I wouldn’t want to do mine the same month.

My bridal shower was the day before the wedding.  It allowed all of my side and DH’s side to attend as they were all ready in town for the wedding itself!

I loved it!

Mine was 2 months before the wedding, it was a total surprise to me, so maybe they are planning one and you are just completely clueless like I was 🙂

Mine will be March 18th and the wedding itself is May 19th. It will have basically every female invited to the wedding, thankfully most of them are normal!
