We did my bach/bridal shower in the same weekend, a month prior to the wedding.  We did them in the same weekend mainly cuz so many of my bridesmaids were from out of town. Sounds like you’ve got a good plan going! 🙂

I’m having a bachelorette/bridal shower on the same weekend too since I’ll be flying in for it, as will many guests. I’m thinking we will have it about 7 weeks before the wedding, mostly just to space out the costs of traveling.

My bridal shower was almost exactly one month before our wedding, we had a couple shower about three weeks before the wedding, and then our bachelor and bachelorette parties were one week before our wedding.

We are having my shower/bachelorette party 6 weeks from the wedding day.  Everyone is flying from out of town and with easter and plans, it just was the best weekend. 

GOod luck!

I’m having 2 showers one May 12th and one May 18th.  My Bachelorette party will be June 7th-9th (same as FI’s party).  Wedding is July 6th.  We planned around a lot of events happening in May and June.  There really weren’t many dates to choose from.

My wedding is March 2 (OMG!!) and Fiance and I each did our respective bach things this past weekend.

My bridal shower was a couple of months ago, in early January.

My first shower was 8 weeks before the wedding. Then another will be at 7 weeks before, another at 6 weeks before, and a final one at 4 weeks before.

My lingerine shower/bach party will be 6 weeks before.

Fiance is on his “bach party” road trip with his best man right now (8 weeks before).


Our wedding weekend is also our colloege graduation weekend. HA. So we really have to space everything out. I feel SO grateful that so many ladies are throwing me showers! But it makes for a hectic (but fun) 2 months 🙂

My Shower and Bach Party is gonna be Memorial day weekend, that saturday and our wedding is in July. We did memorial day weekend bc Fiance and I live in FL and all of our family (and our wedding) is going to be in NY so based on vacation time it was really our best option.

Wow, I guess my shower is really early compared to everyone else! My shower is July 13, and my wedding is October 19. Just about 3 months before the wedding…. is this too early?! Nothing I can do about it now, its already decided. Oops! I didn’t even really have anything to do with planning it, my two aunts are doing everything. 

I am having a friends shower on September 8th, so that is about 6 weeks before the wedding. The friends shower will only be small gifts, like under $10 or something.

We had our household shower this past weekend, and we were 14 weeks from the wedding. For us, it just made more sense to go ahead and get the big shower out of the way since we are busy doing all sorts of things on the weekends until the wedding. My bachelorette is in late April and my Fiance bachelor is in early May.

Yikes! Mine are much more spread out, thank goodness. My first shower was about 2.5 months before. FI’s bachelor party was at 2 months before. Second shower about 6 weeks before, and my bachelorette will be 3 weeks before.
