Thats very nice of your FMIL’s friends!  Would it just be them and family or would you have your friends there too?  I think if its just them and some family it doesnt matter when it is if it works for everyone since they want to throw it for you.  It is early, but 1 week before the wedding is too close to be having a shower (imo).  If you are going to have a shower in MI, you could do that one closer to your wedding date.

My mom just looked it up in the etiquet book she has.  It says 2-3 months prior to the wedding is ideal.  If you have to be just over or under that, its not the worst thing in the world though.

I would think March would work out better. That way you would have time to get the gifts home, as opposed to coming home with the wedding stuff AND gifts from the shower.
