The events themselves usually occur within the last 2 months before the wedding – so I would say the planning would start getting underway 4-6 months out depending on whether it was an out of town thing or a local thing!

i think it really depends on the people planning. my sister and sil planned my bachelorette party 2 weeks in advance, it was just me and them, they booked a trip to vermont and planned all sorts of fun things to do there. they started planning my shower 1 1/2 months in advance. i’m sure they would have taken less time, but they had to include other people and send invites out, and actually book a place for it. they’re not much for planning in advance, but the parties are still super fun!

I depends on the people you want to be there. If you’re anything like me and have your BMs and closest friends spread across the country, you need to start early to make sure that everyone you care about can figure out a time and place that works for them. I’m in the camp that it’s never too early to start planning things. I was a Bridesmaid or Best Man in my friend’s wedding this summer and we tried to start planning it months in advance and she was like no no it’s too soon – then she emails us months later being like I can do this and that weekend. None of us could do it, so we didn’t end up doing anything. PLAN AHEAD!
