I am also planning long distance. Wedding is in August and we are moving (dont know where to yet) in eaarly June. I am planning on having my bridal shower at the end of June and either doing the bachelorette party the following weekend or the weekend before the wedding since my Maid/Matron of Honor lives in Alabama. I had been planning on just flying out for the shower in May, but then decided to just wait until my Fiance graduates from grad school to avoid missing work etc. Where are you planning on having the shower and bach party?

I’m getting married in May and my family is throwing me a shower in December. I don’t think January is too soon if your family and friends are OK with it; you’re engaged and planning at this point so I’m sure all would be OK with a shower! You could also do it right before the wedding but that may get very stressful!!

I got married last May, and we did our shower over Easter weekend, since many people were traveling “home” (where I got married) for the holiday. We did my bachelorette party the Friday before the wedding. That way, no one had to make extra trips for my pre-wedding parties. I don’t think January is too early- I think you should do it the most convenient weekend for you & everyone else who may want to be there from Out of Town.

I just heard about a shower that was held the day before the wedding- I was taken aback at first, but I guess if you have a bunch of people coming together from different places, that’s your best bet for having a substantial guest list.
