Has anybody had or will have their shower and bachelorette party one week apart? I’ve already have my bridesmaids talking about a date since they are busy and have to put time in at their work ahead of time. I’m not big on surprises either so I said for the bachelorette party to be on a certain date and for them to choose the shower.
My Maid/Matron of Honor just told me the date today and I realize it’s the weekend before the bach. Before I talk to her I just want to be sure I’m not freaking out for no reason.
I did want my bachelorette party to be a month before the wedding cuz I needed the following weekends to pack and move into my fiance’s place and not have tired feet from partying. But now I feel I may have to move it. I feel like parties one week apart is too much for me (I’m not a big partier or talker, so I get tired easily, but of course it might be that I need to get in shape lol)
Am I overreacting? I’m told that a lot, and I really don’t want to overreact with my girls. I want them to have a fun time and not remember me being a pain.

as long as it’s not a big deal for them, i think it would be ok. it is a lot of wedding at once, which could be hard for people to do if they have busy lives, but i don’t think it should be hard for you. you do have a whole week to recoup from the last party!
plus it should be good practice for when you get closer to the wedding. in a few weeks- wedding weekend, i have to do friday night auf ruf (jewish blessing), sat. rehearsal lunch, and sunday wedding. that’s a lot of wedding parties in one weekend!

I’m having 2 showers in the same weekend. I don’t think it is a big deal and honestly it is probably best to get it all done and over with so that you can focus your time on wedding details and the move

My bachelorette is the night before the shower and 2 weeks before the wedding. I had to have it like that to accomodate out-of-town guests.

Yeah, I don’t think it’s a big deal as long as it’s not a scheduling problem for you or for most of them! Just enjoy all the wedding stuff at once 🙂

if the people invited to both events are local, then it’s no problem at all. that’s how the scheduling for my bestie’s shower and bach parties went because we were up to the last few weekends before her wedding. no one cared or found it inconvenient. plus, two weekends of partying? can’t be mad about that!
