Well I had my post all typed then WB deleted it 🙁 Sparknotes version: I’m planning on throwing my sister’s bridal shower and bach. party in November, we want to do both on the same weekend. I’m not expecting a whole lot of help from the other bridesmaids but they’ve all told me they want to help so lets cross our fingers lol. With it being around the holidays, when should I start asking the important people about weekends that work for them and when should I start planning? These need to be kick ass parties because my sister deserves the best, I just don’t want to be a pain in the ass and start bugging people about this to early. What do you bees think?

You can probably start thinking of ideas now but I would wait to ask everyone about dates until July/August 🙂

I don’t think it’s ever too early to get ideas and consider dates but I don’t think you could get a solid date yet. My shower was planned in five weeks and worked out great, everyone made it, etc. My wedding is in 8 weeks and we’ve got a few ideas for the bachelorette but no plans but I know they’ll throw something great together whenever they can. I think you could talk to the bride about if certain months are better and off limit/busy times but I wouldn’t ask the BMs or others about it for a few more months.

Jacqui90: That’s kind of what I was thinking 🙂
