    Mine was 3 hours, and that was plenty of time for brunch, gifts, and cake.  Nobody really wants to spend all day at a bridal shower, so I wouldn’t go longer than that.

    The ladies at work organized and surprised me with a bridal shower, they were so great!  They did a potluck lunch, which lasted about two hours.  It was really sweet and I found it to be the perfect amount of time!  Everyone got a chance to eat and relax and then we did presents and cake.  I still have that Tiara somewhere that my boss made me wear….

    I think 3 hours or less would be good. As a guest anything more than 3 hours I’m ready to blow my mind up.

    Mine was yesterday, 11am – 1pm. We used the patio area of a great diner here in town. There were about 9 of us, and we had brunch, played a couple games, I opened the gifts and we took some pictures.

    It was the perfect amount of time.

    Mine lasted about 3 hours and it was plenty. A good hour and a half of that was spent opening presents so 2 hours wouldn’t have cut it for us.

    I have gone to ones that have lasted 3-4 hours.  Depending on who it was for though.  My extended family likes to make a huge affair out of things so sometimes we would stay so catch up, hang around, and eat more food.

    Mine was about 3 hours, and that was enough time to eat, play a couple games and open gifts.
