How long was your bridal shower/ any bridal shower you’ve been to? One of my BM’s is doing all the planning for my shower and she told me the shower would be from 11:30am-1:30pm. is it just me or does that seem really short? to me it seems like there is barely enought time to say hello to everyone, eat, and open presents. What’s your verdict? shold i say something (or have my Maid/Matron of Honor politely suggest on my behalf) that the shower be longer? I invited 40+ ladies (i have a huge family), and i know there will be a sit down meal. 2 hrs just doesnt seem like enough time to do anything IMO.

The standard is 3 hours. It might be a little short.

I would say around 3 hours too… I think one ended up being closer to 4

Mine should be around 5 Hours (full sit down lunch), some games and prizes

For a smaller group, I might think you could do it in 2 hours. For a group of 40, though, I think that’s stretching it if you’re planning to open gifts at the shower.
