A Jack and Jill one month, and then a Bridal shower a couple of months later? Is that too much? I’ve known other people to do it, but I’m worried that it comes across as asking for too much from people.
(Side note – our Maid/Matron of Honor and Best Man are also planning Bachlor(ette) parties for us!)

I think as long as people don’t feel pressured to attend every event it is fine. Does anything besides the bridal shower and wedding require a gift? If so, maybe you should state no gifts for some of the parties.
I likely would not attend all 4 events if I was from out of town, but I wouldnt be offended just because you invited me to 4 parties.

I wouldn’t be offended just b/c I got invited, but I don’t know why you’d have a Jack and Jill AND a bridal shower in addition to the two bachelorette parties unless one was, say, a family event, and one was a friends event.

I think it’s fine. I actually plan on there being more than one shower and I’d love for one to be His and Hers

I was thinking the same as ejs, basically. Is the Jack and Jill and bridal shower for the same people (or at least same ladies)? If so, I’d skip one. If your regular bridal shower is for family, and you feel like you’d like to invite friends, I’d say it’s OK, but maybe not necessary. Outside of the Bridal Party, you could just leave one as a family shower. The other (ie. Jack and Jill) for friends.

I think it is fine, but I would have as little overlap in the invitations for the events as possible. So, I would invite the couples you hang out with to the Jack and Jill and your family and your girlfriends to the other, for example. Any overlap should be reserved for the girls who are your very best friends.
