Hi date twin!  🙂

My bachelorette weekend is April 30-May 2, and my shower is May 8.  I think anytime between now and the week before the BIG DAY is appropriate.

I havn’t had mine yet; we’re not getting married until May 2011. But I will say this: I have a cousin who had her shower 3 months ahead of time & a lot of the ladies there thought it was weird that it was soo early. It looks like your already past that point though. But I’d say anywhere from 1-2 months before is okay. I lean more to the side of about 1 – 1 1/2 months. I don’t really know what the norm is. But I’ve been learning and trying to pay attention more about what other people think since i know i’m going to be doing these things before too long…. Good Luck!

I may be having a shower the day before – all bridal shower, mani/pedi, rehearsl & rehearsal dinner in ONE day!

For us everyone is so spaced out all over the country (literally) that the only way it can happen!

I’m June 19th and my shower was March 21st.  It had to be during my sisters spring break.. so that’s when that happened.

I’m June 5th too and my shower is May 2nd. It was literally the only free weekend I have in the month of May but according to my Maid/Matron of Honor that’s an “appropriate” time frame.

I’m super lucky and had several bridal shower offers. I just had one locally last weekend (April 11, and my wedding date is June 26) – that date was chosen because my mom was in town for something else, so my aunt-in-law scheduled it so she could be there.

My other shower is going to be June 20 (yup, 6 days before the wedding) because I’m getting married in my hometown, and that’s the soonest we could do it and have the guest of honor (me!) be there.

My wedding is July 24, 2010 and we are having the shower May 16 and the stagette June 20th.

My only suggestion is that having it the week before, or even that month…is really tacky..it looks like a gift grab. Just imagine if you were invited to a wedding, expected to bring a gift AND the day BEFORE the wedding you are asked to come to a shower and bring a gift as well…

I realize some brides are doing this, and i mean no offence, and sometimes there is not time but that time…but if you cant work it out to have the shower ATLEAST four weeks before the wedding…right it off and not have one…

My FDIL is having several showers- two thrown by her young friends in Waco, and one thrown by the “moms” here in Houston.  The latter is the latest, occurring on May 22nd, approximately 2weeks from the weeding.  As for it being a big gift grab, well, by this age, you are well aware that a shower at any time is pretty much a gift grab and you  decide whether or not you want to go- or you find a good excuse;-)  Showers generally beat Tupperware, Silpada, Mary Kay and Pampered Chef for fun value anyway.  You’re spending as much money (sometimes less) on someone you love.  So anytime within a two and a half month period is appropriate I think, as long as it’s not immediately before the wedding (10 day time span).
