    Yes, too early. Have the shower later and get to the bachelorette destination later. : (12 votes)

    That time is perfectly fine for a bridal shower, as long as the hosts will be providing lunch for the guests and not just light snacks.

    ETA:  I should have said lunch or brunch.  My bridal shower was during a similar timeframe. My friends hosted an absolutely wonderful, delicious brunch for my shower! 🙂

    @StormyStar:  I think it is the perfect time. You can serve little cute sandwhiches, tea or even brunch. I love the time choice.

    A lunchtime bridal shower sounds perfect! 😀

    My bridal shower was at 11:00 am. There was delicious brunch food, mimosas, and bloody marys! Everyone loved it!

    I think it’s a fine time. Out of the 6 showers I’ve been to in the past 3 years have all been brunch/lunch time. I think it’s something of tradition in my circle. 

    ETA: 4 bridal, 2 baby

    If it was just the shower then I would say make it a little later, but since you have to drive so far, the earlier the better.

    I actually thought all bridal showers were at brunchtime until very recently (my cousin threw me one at 7 PM, which was great but threw me for a loop!). So I think that a 11 AM brunch shower would be perfect!!

    I think an 11am brunch is lovely.

    I think it’s fine and whoever is throwing the shower should have brunch type foods, etc.

    11 sounds good, but 2 hrs could be short if you want to spend time with everyone, have lunch, play games, and open gifts. Then there’s packing up the gifts to cart home.
