I am getting married in October (20th) and I was curious what month I would most likely have my bridal shower?
I know it depends on when who’s ever throwing it has the time to get around to doing so, but I’m curious how many months in advance everyone had theirs. Or if you have more than one, how that worked as well.

I just had two showers last weekend! 3 weeks before my wedding!

@DeathByDesign: awesome! I know it sounds totally trivial, but ever since we registered last weekend, I’m kind of dying to have a shower, lol. I have 9 months until my wedding so I guess I’ll be waiting awhile! lol

I am having two showers and both will be in mid to late April with my wedding on May 18. I think a month or so before hand is pretty typical based on my experience.

Most of the showers I’ve been to have been about 2 months before the wedding. We’re also having an October wedding (2013), so I’d expect the shower to be towards the end of August.

- Wedding: April 2012 - St. Philip Catholic Church/Arcadia Brewing Co.
Oct 20th is my sister’s birthday! 🙂
That’s totally off topic. I am having a shower on Feb 25th and we are getting married mid-April. So a month and a half before.
We registered WAY early too.. However, it gave people a chance to by registery items for other occations so that was fun!

I had two showers, one for my family and friends and the other for DH’s family, and they were both about 4 months before the wedding. My family wanted it to be outdoors and anything after Aug/Sept the weather gets iffy and Mother-In-Law also didn’t want to worry about weather so thats why they were so early.

Mine is going to be 2 months before.. as it is the only time I can get up to my family ect. I live about 600 miles away.. and the month before the wedding I will be coming up 3 weeks before and have one of my bridesmaids showers to go to, and we’ll be moving. Hopefully no one cares when it is..

@aardvark: awesome! We actually had someone already buy all of our “everyday” dinnerware! I can’t describe how excited I was to see “fulfilled” next to items on our registry, lol – so fun!
I think an August shower woud be nice for us since I’ll be just starting school again, but not so far in that I’m overwhelmed. My birthday is in September, and I could see us getting registry item’s for that as well.

Mine will be exactly 4 weeks before the wedding. We’re semi-destination, and we’re heading out for our joint bachelor/ette immediately following. It’s just what works best for all of us! I’d rather not have it so close, b/c that’ll also be my 2nd/final dress fitting, but oh well.
