I’m also a Maid/Matron of Honor for a wedding in 8/1 and I’m hosting her shower 6/6 and bachelorette 6/26.. I think I am going to send out invites 6-8 weeks ahead (I guess like wedding invites) I don’t know what the “official” protocol is for these types of events though but yeah April definitely sounds early!

If only your BMs are going to need to fly in and they’re all involved in the planning then I think 6-8 weeks is more than enough time beforehand to send them out. April is way too early IMO. Treat it as you would a birthday party timeframe.

I think that May would probably be good.  I know that I need at least a few months to make sure that I get a good price on airfare since it gets expensive when you get to close to the date.  Are you sure that people are going to be able to travel for the bachelorette and then the wedding the month after?  I know I wouldn’t be able to afford that right now.

I know nothing about my shower, but I know my bachelorette is the weekend of July 30th. My MOH’s have sent out an email to give everyone the heads up & keep that weekend open. Our group of friends has a lot of weddings this year so a little advanced notice goes a long way. We’re just going to AC for the weekend so there’s no flying involved, everyone’s in driving distance.
