My wedding is october 11. We haven’t done much for planning the bridal shower but I think my MOH’s have a secret Pinterest board they are rounding up ideas on. It is set for August 16th. And they also booked a Vegas trip for the bachelorette party Labor Day weekend..August 28-31.

weddedbliss2014:  My Maid/Matron of Honor told me that I need to set aside certain dates months ago. He was also very anxious to get a guest list as well. He also informed me that he has already purchased invitations for the bridal shower lol. I haven’t asked them to do a single thing. Like me 2/3 of my bridal party and my mom and older sister are all type A and planners sooo they get things done quickly and make sure dates are okay with everyone to give enough notice to work and get to here (one is in a different city and one of the girls I want for the bachelorette is from another city too). Bridal shower is at the end of August and the bachelorette is the beginning of September.

I definitely think now is the time for them to start planning and at least secure a date! My family/BMs set the date at least a month or so ago, and are now starting to work on it (but we’re a very organized family lol)

Bachelorette Sept 6

Bridal Shower Sept 21

My ‘secret’ ‘surprise’ bridal shower is August 3 and has been planned for more than a month, I believe.  I didn’t want one, but Future Mother-In-Law insisted.  She enjoys it, so I decided to graciously accept the party.  No bach as I can’t get all my gals in one place at one time except for the wedding itself.  I’m a little sad as that would be fun, but I’m just happy they can all make it to the wedding!

I’m a November bride but my bachelorette is July 25 (destination that required flights, only weekend that worked for everyone) and my shower is in October. I don’t think they’ve planned much for that, but did give them a guest list.

weddedbliss2014:  Shower/Bach weekend is Aug 9- we had to plan it quite a while in advance, but only because there are many other weddings this summer/fall and we just wanted to secure a date.   I live out of state and many girls in bridal party are also in a lot of those said weddings so to make it easier on them (and one less trip home for me) we are having shower early in the day, and bach party that night on the same weekend.

weddedbliss2014:  AHAHAHA I LITERALLY just booked mine like half an hour ago. For the 9th August. I thought I had plenty of time to book it. And then I realised that I did not. It was like a month away.

 

But it’s booked! Hurrrrrraaaay!

My bridesmaids have had the dates picked out for a while now. We have lots of busy schedules to work around so it was even difficult finding dates that worked out, months in advance. My bridal shower is August 2nd and my bachelorette party is September 6th.

My wedding is Oct 25. I had my bachelorette party Aug 9. My shower is Sept 14. It is spread out becasue I have 3 bridesmaids that work a rotating schedule so I wanted them to be able to request certain weekends off so they didn’t have to use vacation time. Also The date of my shower is because my brithday is the 12 and I thought it would be nice to see all my family right around my birthday, I made it very clear I do not want any mention of my birthday at the shower.

My wedding is October 4th, but I chose not to have a bridal shower or bachelorette party.  Was asked many times if someone could throw anything and shot it down everytime.  I do think that when we get to the last week, family may take me out for a low key dinner which I think would be nice.
