Yes, of course.

Properly speaking, you have nothing to do with the planning for your bridal shower. You don’t know when the invitations will be going out, or even if your friends are planning to have a shower for you. So of course you cannot schedule your own social planning around a party that other hostesses may or may not hold in your honour.

Showers are not supposed to be major formal events, anyway. They are a chance for your most intimate friends (or for a family shower, your extended family members; or for a work shower, your closest co-workers; or for a church shower, your church family) to get together for some relaxed wedding-focused fun to help everyone, you included, to get used to the idea of you-as-wife-and-married-lady instead of the you-as-unfettered-single that they have been accustomed to up until now. Since its for close friends/coworkers/family only, you shouldn’t need to worry as much about the sensitivities that formal etiquette is intended to protect.
