    I think you should send an email asking the other BMs what they prefer? Or the mom’s too if they’re out of town as well.

    I think a week before the wedding is going to be difficult for those flying in and seem a little gift intensive…. people will have to give for the shower and than the wedding and make it difficult to send out timely thank you cards.. Just my two cents!

    I think a month or two before the wedding, given that people are going to have to travel to attend. Then give PLENTY of notice, so nobody feels that they’ve missed out or weren’t able to make travel plans. Plus, it would make for a fun weekend. 🙂

    Definitely give advance notice if there’s travel involved, but I think doing it a month before the wedding is wise. If you have the shower AND bach party the weekend for the wedding, the bride and others might be getting stressed about getting last-minute things done and may not be able to enjoy the parties. I’m getting married in 2 weeks and I would be unhappy if I didn’t have the weekend before the wedding to get in touch with vendors, finish up last-minute crafts, and just try to relax and have some fun before the big week starts.

    Crap, I voted wrong!  I accidentally voted for a week before, but I DEFINITELY meant a month before.  The week before would have been WAY too hectic – plus, you don’t want guest burnt out on gift giving 🙂

    I think a month or so before the wedding sounds great, but it can never hurt to check with the other ladies and see what they they are able to do. If it turns out they won’t be able to travel for both the shower/bach weekend and the wedding, you could see what kind of things you could put together for anyone who is in town or within driving distance. Good for you for getting a head start on planning, and good luck!
