My wedding is September 2nd. When should we have the shower? Me and my BM’s are both clueless…..
When did you have your shower in relation to your wedding date?
And for that mater, what about your Bach Party??
I dont want to plan them to early and seem gift grabby but I also dont want to wait to late and have it be to close and stressfull.

Shower, a month in advance. Try July 28th.
Bachelorette Party 1-2 weeks in advanced.
At least, thats how it was for me in my situation.

For me, we did the shower about a month and a half before and bachelorette party 2 weeks before.

I agree with pp, end of july sounds great… not to threadjack but kind of on the same topic and it may help you out. we’re thinking of doing mine in late August for an October 20 wedding only because some of my BM’s are in school… I think this may be okay… not quite sure though what do you bee’s think? Too early for a shower?

My shower is in July (for an October wedding). I have too many commitments in August/September (read: weddings and events for others weddings!) to wait until a month before. I would say 1-3 months before is perfectly acceptable. My bachelorette is late August (so 2 months before). Again, I just didn’t want to compact too much activity into the month leading up to the big day!

@Woodstock: You are getting married the weekend before me and I am having a July 28th shower. Not too early at ALL. (At least in my opinion). 🙂

My wedding is Sept. 22nd.
The shower is June 30th. My Maid/Matron of Honor is busy all of August and could not host it then. July was too busy with birthdays (mine, Fiance, MOH’s mom, dad and daughter). She told me she was originally going to have it 2 weeks before the wedding! I advised her that I might not be a nice person if that happened. So, that’s how we ended up in June.
My Bachelorette Party Trip is the first weekend in August.
My fiance’s Bachelor Party is in June! They couldn’t wait apparently! LOL

I had my shower in March and I got married in May. A couple months is fine. July, as a PP suggested, sounds about right.

I had my shower last weekend and my wedding isn’t until October. Though, one of my out of town BMs had told me she was going to be in town that weekend and didn’t even end up coming to my shower!

Most of my family/friends are out of town (WAY OOT) related to where the wedding is. To save them an extra long drive or plan ride, my shower was the day before the wedding. I didn’t have a bachelorette party, just took my mom and Maid/Matron of Honor to the spa the day before that.

My bm is planning on having my shower about a month before the wedding (I asked her to do it this way so the day of the shower coordinates with my hair and makeup trial). She is planning it for maybe October 20 or 21. Wedding is November 25.
