I think you can have them whenever, but I think some of your guests may grumble about having to give you gifts two weeks apart.

I had mine two and five months out.

The two bridal shower parties I had been invited to were a month before the wedding. I don’t know that there is a rule, though.

My shower is probably 2.5 months out.  I think having a shower a week or two before the wedding would appear a little gift-grabby – people do not have much time in between, and you’re basically ‘asking’ for two presents within a few weeks.

I’d say if they can plan something a month before the wedding that would be best in your situation.

I’ve been to a shower held the day before the wedding (the bride’s family and friends were very spread out, and she wanted everyone to be there). My shower was 3 months before the wedding because I was moving across the country for a new job, and my mom wanted to have it before I moved.  So basically, I don’t think there is any rule–whatever time works best for the most important people involved!

I think 2 weeks might be too soon because it’s a lot of gifting your guests will be responsible for.  Mine will be just about 2 months away from the wedding.

I think 3 or so weeks before the wedding is really the latest that is appropriate. You have time if they send out invitations like now.

It’s a little close but that’s no reason to cancel it in my mind.

FI’s family is doing mine, they didn’t even ask about it until like a month ago…
