I am thinking having mine 3 months before the wedding (so June next year).  I just figured it would be easier so that anyone coming from out of town would have some downtime between it and the wedding.  But I think maybe 2 months before is a good time.

I was an October bride and my bridal shower was in August.

Typically they are held sometime between 1-3 months before the wedding.  However, it’s really what works best for your and your MOH’s schedule.  I threw a shower for a friend 4 months before her wedding because it was the only time we could do it.  For your situation, I would probably shoot for August, before school starts and everyone gets busy with that.

My sister asked me the same question and Ive been told that its suppose to happen somewhere between 3 months to a few weeks prior to the wedding, i guess it depends!

My wedding is in February, showers in December and January. I didn’t really want to deal with a shower in January but the host insisted.
