I’m flying to Florida in March for my shower, so a little over two months before the wedding. I’m going to do a bunch of planning while I’m there. I don’t think June would be too early for yours.

We planned from afar and scheduled our showers for times when we would already be in town. October wedding, and we had a July couples shower + July bachelor/ette parties, and it worked out nicely. Spaced out the gift giving for our guests too.

ETA: We left all of our gifts at my parents’ house and they brought them down next time they came to visit. I had friends though who actually returned all of their registry gifts, kept a list of who gave them what, and then re-bought in their hometown.

  • Wedding: September 2011

I’m living in California and planning a wedding for September in Boston. Our families live in Maryland and New Jersey, but my parents live in Florida. It’s a mess.  My Future Mother-In-Law is hosting a bridal shower at her house in NJ on Saturday July 2. I’m flying in for it and my mother is driving up for it. Many of my friends living in NJ and further north will come down for it. Then on Sunday July 3 some of us are driving down to Maryland for a second bridal shower for those who live in MD and further south. Then I will fly home on Monday July 4. No work missed!

Only problem with this method is I don’t want any gifts to be given at the showers. I’d have to carry them home on a flight to CA and it would just be a mess. So I’m not sure how to handle that since half the fun is opening gifts in front of the guests.

@MsATC: I forgot about the gifts, that is going to be a giant pain. We’re driving down for the wedding so the presents are going to sit at my mom’s house until then.
