I work every weekend and have already requested a few weekend days off to do wedding stuff – The wedding day, marriage counselling class at fiances church, honeymoon, etc.
Would it be odd to have my bridal shower on a holiday Monday?
There’s civic holiday the first Monday in August. Most people have the day off. Otherwise, i’d have to request yet another day off for the bridal shower.
MY Maid/Matron of Honor seems to think showers should be on Saturday afternoons.

I don’t see any problem with it. Mine was a Sunday afternoon.

No, I don’t think it’s wierd, you just have to keep in mind that some people may be planning to go away that weekend and won’t be available, so you would end up having a slightly smaller shower. You could always do a co-ed shower to combat that, if it concerns you.

@Rubbs: I was considering Sunday also, but it would be after 5:00 for me to attend
@NLbride: That’s a good point about people going away. I’ll ask around in advance to see if people will be in town

I think it’s fine, as long as invitations go out early enough.
