    Just out of curiousity why are you involved with the planning??

    secondly  are you out of your mind?  the day before the wedding you will more likely than not be up to your eyeballs with things to do and if not then you shoudl get yourself some rest fo the next day!!

    I was involved with picking my shower date and giving the hostess the guest list.  I don’t see how that’s odd.


    I’d personally try to have it on another date.  Could Thursday work?

    I would try and have it on another day.  You never know what could happen the day before your wedding so you might want to have that time free for unforeseen circumstances.

    If your family can’t fly in Thursday, I’d say just go for Friday!  It’s more important that the people you care about are there!

    i would try and do it thursday as well.  i feel like friday you will be too overwhelmed thinking about everything else going on that you won’t really have time to enjoy it!

    Not even having anything to do with amount of work left – but thats cutting it clsoe for guest gifts.  Theyre going to see a wide open registry and you mightned up getting a lot of dupolicates.  Truly I think you should pick the other date.  Those that cant attend might send a gift, but dont do it so close to the wedding

    I don’t think I’d be able to enjoy my shower if it was the day before the wedding. Try for Thursday if at all possible.

    Agree with KellyV – as a general etiquette rule, your shower shouldn’t be any closer than roughly 6 wks before your wedding.  Otherwise your guests are getting you gifts too close together.

    I think that if you’re comfortable, you should do it then.  I’m the same way (well actually I’m having no shower, but…) my mom, sister, everybody is out of town so the only way we’d have time to do it is if it was right before the wedding – kind of why I turned it down.

    I had a bridal lingerie shower thrown for me the thursaday night before the wedding because it was when everyone would be in town. I was glad for all my Out of Town friends and family that were able to be there that couldnt come to any other of our wedding related parties.
