    Ours was mid October for our 12/31 wedding…about 6 weeks before.  I wouldn’t change the timing but we did a lot beforehand so there wasn’t much going on at that time.

    Mine was exactly 3 months from my wedding. I would have probably had it maybe a month closer to my wedding.

    My showers were 1.5 and 1 month(s) before my wedding. Things were so crazy at that point and I was so busy at work I would have preferred they were earlier, but I was still very grateful for so much attention and love.

    My shower is almost exactly 3 mo before the wedding. I know that is pretty early, but my Maid/Matron of Honor lives a plane ride away and i REALLY wanted to minimize the number of times she was flying up here for wedding stuff. So we’re having it the sunday after thanksgiving bc she’ll be here to see her family anyways.

    I had my first shower on May 1 and the second on May 23 before my June 26 wedding.  But we were working around finals and graduation, so those were really the only dates I could do it.  We did the bachelorette a the weekend after the second shower too.  

    Maybe you could do the shower on Saturday afternoon and then go out for the bachelorette?  Or do the bachelorette Friday and the shower Sunday?

    I had my shower a week before my wedding and it was fine!

    I knew about it and so I could plan accordingly!
