So my mama is getting married in October. I am her Maid of Honor and so far Covid hasn’t put a damper on too too much. However, I just got to thinking… October brides… When do you plan on having your Bridal Shower and Bach Party? Do you think that Covid will put a damper on any of the dates?
My initial thought was to do both of those things in August/September. Do you think that would be alright?
Just curious for other October Bries what their “extra party” plans are. 🙂

I’m in a November wedding and the bachlorette party is scheduled for September. I really have no idea if it will actually happen or if I will end up attending if it does

A lot depends on where you live and if you have guests traveling.

I don’t think anyone will be traveling. But i’m hoping that if I hold off on planning anything until maybe…. July/August that I can guage things a little better.
We are in the midwest and our state just got the stay at home order for an additional month.
Supppper interesting times. 🙂 🙂

Scheduled for August 1 bridal shower and end of September bachelorette. These are the dates that were always planned on, so nothing was pushed back due to COVID. We’ll see what happens!

I’m getting married in October and my shower is planned for august and then my bachelorette is in September. My bachelorette is literally just going to be 5 of us in a cabin so it shouldn’t matter much. If you’re planning a more traditional bachelorette I would just pay close attention to what the regulations are looking like where it will be and maybe have a backup plan if you aren’t able to go out. Same with the shower. Mine is going to be very low key and the only thing that may change is the number of people invited.

September 19th bride here! my Maid/Matron of Honor just sent out invites for my July 18th shower, and my bach is going to be sept. 4th through the 7th (upstate NY travelling to Asheville NC for the bach, 2 of my bridesmaids live there). We have had some minor dilemmas so far, but overall we havent been affected too much and were just rolling with the punches as they come. We rented an Air BNB for my bach and if we cant go out and do things we will have plenty of fun at the house. My shower is going to be at my Future in-laws house and im not expecting more than around 30 people to come.

My sister is getting married in October. She decided not to have a shower because she said she didn’t want one. And about half of the bridal party, if not more, is out of town. Some of us are so far we have to fly, so she’s going to just do like a weekend slumber party with the girls who can go. She hasn’t planned it yet but she’ll probably do it sometime in early October.

I’m Maid/Matron of Honor in an October wedding.
Bride cancelled the shower.
Bachelorette is tentatively scheduled for the last weekend in September. We are going to re-assess closer to (i.e. we were originally going out of town for the weekend – it may need to shift into a one day event). A lot will depend on government guidelines for social distancing. Our hope is to go to a cabin with about 10 people.

I’m getting married in October as well! I’m having two showers. The first is July 11 and the second is August 16. We have not decided on a weekend for the bachelorette but we are thinking Labor Day weekend.

Touching back into this one. 🙂 Where are the October brides and are you still having showers and “extra” parties?
We just picked a date for my moms Co-ed Bridal shower (The end of Sept) at their Church. We don’t have a limit on the number of people, but there is a mile long list of rules that we must follow.
We are in the midwest and just kinda seeing what other people are doing/thinking on everything.
My mom is 100% sure that she will still have the October wedding. I told her in August, we just need to check with the venue and then again in September just in case.
What are the other October brides doing and thinking?
2020 WHAT A YEAR!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

We downsized our wedding a LOT. We are literally just having parents and half the wedding party. We pushed the reception out a year, so we’ll probably just have the shower before that. Still planning on having a bachelorette because like I said before, it’s literally just going to be 4 of us in a cabin. I don’t think I would feel comfortable going out at all.
Mines all taking place in KY and WV, so I’m worried about gathering sizes shrinking right before (WV went from max of 100 to max of 25 a couple days ago). I decided I would rather make the decision myself to keep things small than have it made for me. That mostly applies to the wedding, but it’s definitely influencing my decisions about the shower too
