I definitely think it’s okay to send out shower invites before the wedding invites go out – especially if the shower is much sooner than the wedding!  For example my wedding is in june but my shower is at the end of april.  the shower invites will probably be going out at least a week or two before the wedding invites.  of course, those who receive shower invites will probably assume they are invited to the wedding, so make sure the lists coincide!

i’ve been wondering this same thing. my Maid/Matron of Honor is throwing my shower and sending out my invites this week. I went to the post office to get all the stamps for my wedding invites and have been putting those together and will be sending those out this week as well. i’m not sure, etiquette wise, about receiving the wedding invite before the shower invite…oh well, I guess, if they do they do! I just want them out soon to get it off my plate!

@SweetAdelineXO – my wedding is actually June 6! My shower is april 25 and it has never been a surprise – I had to pick the date because I live out of town and work on the weekends!  Oh well, I’m sure it will be fun anyway 🙂

shower invites are ok before wedding invites.. showers usually take place to get you ready for the big event (baby shower=baby, bridal shower=wedding!)

I have always received shower invites before the wedding invites because sometimes showers are a couple of months before the wedding. No problem. 🙂 The people you are inviting to the shower probably pretty much know that they are invited to the wedding anyway!
