So I get married April 14 and one of my bridesmaids is getting married June 30th. I just heard from her moH that she is planning a surprise shower APRIL 7th. I tend to think I will be really busy with last minute preparations for my wedding the following weekend. Do you think I just say unfortunately I cannot attend? Hopefully they understand. It stinks because they are going to also be doing her bachelorette then. The trip would have my flying halfway across the country.
Has anyone traveled the weekend before? Did it work out or say too stressful?

I didn’t really think there was anything to do a week before the wedding. The only thing I had to worry about was the day before the wedding and getting all the little things to the venue so that they could set it up the next day. The entire week leading up to it, I didn’t do anything really wedding related. We had Out of Town guests coming in so we just hung out with people, that’s about it. Oh, and a few hours one day to pick up the tuxes.

I traveled the weekend before our wedding, but I didn’t have to fly. It was about a 4-hour train ride each way. By the week before our wedding, I was done with all the preparations, so I didn’t actually have last-minute stuff to do, but I was still nervous and was acting a bit off all weekend, I remember.
My point is, if you don’t feel comfortable with it, don’t go. It’s totally understandable. If you want to be there, though, it could be a fun way to get your mind off your own wedding details.

Thanks ladies, I will need to give it some thought.
