    Yes, call the host and explain your concerns, I'm sure she wants you to be happy

    No, theres not really a concern about Easter and you've already told her the date is ok

    It’s the Saturday before, I don’t think you’ll have any issues. Besides, I don’t know of a single person who travels for Easter…not to say that no one does I just don’t think it’s a common thing.

    wb123:  Is Easter a major travel holiday? I wouldnt be too concerned unless you had a ton of guests coming in from out of town. I think its fine.

    I don’t think Easter is typically one of the holidays that people travel for. Also, I think it might be a little late now that she’s paid for, printed, and maybe even mailed the invitations. Maybe she’ll reconsider if the response rate is abnormally low.

    When I saw the post title, I assumed the shower was scheduled for Easter Sunday, which would be a problem IMO. But the Saturday before? I think you’ll be fine.

    I don’t think it should be that much of an issue. FI’s cousin is getting married that Saturday and I’m assuming most of the family will still make it!

    I don’t think of easter as a travel holiday; usually the Sunday is family/church time but Saturday should be fine.

    Honestly, it is a know your crowd thing.  On my side of the family it wouldn’t be a big deal.  On  DH’s side of the family it wouldn’t happen.

    whether or not people travel (and I know a lot of people do, as it’s spring break for many kiddos), i think it’s too late to reschedule. Maid/Matron of Honor cleared it with you, you said ok, invites have been printed, etc.

    I always travel for Easter (usually 3-4 hours to a family friend’s house), but I agree with PP that it’s too late to change the date if invites have been printed.

    My hen do is the Saturday before Easter because it is the only Saturday in March we could make work for my closest friends. What I would say is that if you haven’t already told people the date, you may find some people may not be available at 6 weeks’ notice.

    One of my friends had a shower on the Saturday before Easter and she actually had a lot of people decline.

    It might not be a major travel holiday but many people see it as a family weekend. I guess it really depends on if you have people from out of town or people that travel for Easter.
