Okay, so I REALLY don’t want a bridal shower, but my mother & Maid/Matron of Honor are planning one anyway.
Whatever, if it makes them happy.
I feel like it’s too soon for a bridal shower, and that we should wait until this October or so [about a year out].
What is the timeframe for a typical bridal shower? 1 year in advance? As soon as you’re engaged? A couple of months before the invites go out?
I know nothing of bridal showers, since I wasn’t really looking to have one.
Any information is welcomed!

@jenilynevette: Tradtionally, bridal showers are held much closer to the time of the wedding. Mine were in April, and my wedding was in May, although a few months in advance would be perfectly fine.

@Brielle: Awesome, I’ll tell them to hold off until next year sometime. Thanks!
They were wanting to jump the gun right now and I think that’s crazy.

I think the showers are usually much closer to the actual wedding. If you are getting married in October, maybe a June to August shower? Most showers I have been to are about 1 to 3 months before the wedding.

I am getting married in October and my shower is going to be in July. Generally showers are held 2-3 months before the wedding.

Even a year in advance is way too soon. The time for a bridal shower is a month or two before the wedding, AFTER the wedding invitations have been sent, so that no one is invited to the shower that is not invited to the wedding.

Its way too soon. They are usually about 6 weeks before the wedding.

My wedding is in March and my shower was in November and I thought it was way too early but it worked for the out of towners! So I think a year before is wayyyy too early! Maybe June at the earliest?
