I don’t know if there are *rules,* but mine’s going to be 3 days before the wedding so that my out-of-town bridesmaids and girlfriends don’t have to make a separate trip across the country 🙂

I am not sure if there are rules, either. My party was in July and my wedding was in October. We went to Cancun, and we had girls flying in from CA, NYC, DC and PA. It was really fun to make a summer trip out of it.

our wedding is the end of feb. mine was in nov. my moh is far away so it was easier to have all of the wedding activities spread out because she has to make so many trips, and they decided to do it then because we made a trip out to vermont and they wanted to do it in the fall. i’m glad it was early, one less thing to stress about right before the wedding (excitement and stress are kind of the same thing for me, i’m weird), and i keep having things to be excited about way before the wedding.

Mine is two weeks before our wedding.  I am having my bridal shower and bechelorette party on the same day.  There is so much going on all the weekends leading up to the wedding, this was the only time we could do it.

Mine will be in May, and wedding is July 31st.  Timing-wise, that works best for me.  I’ll be making an extra trip back home to the east coast for my bachelorette.  Most of my friends are all still on the east coast, so it didn’t seem fair to make them all fly across the country just for me.

We always advise our bachelorette clients to have the party a month before. You’ll be stressed enough 2 days prior to the event. Why throw in more stress with another event? Plus, heaven forbid something goes wrong, there’s time to do some damage control. 95% of us won’t wake up with a tiger in our hotel room but you never know. =)

 

There’s a good argument for keeping the date close to the party when you’re involving people from out of town. It’s a judgement call. A good middle of the road might be planning a half day spa trip with the out of towners to relax before the wedding. That way it’s not stressful and you can get some quality time in with them. 

 

Hope that helps!

Mine was 3 weeks in advance. It was good timing b/c it was close enough to be SUPER excited for the wedding, and yet at the same time, forced me to take a no-crafting break for a day and a half and just enjoy the festivities. It was nice to have a day focused on me, when i’d been spending SO much time and effort focusing on the wedding and not really myself. If that makes sense. I was never going out or having fun b/c i was so busy crafting and planning and stuff.

We all went to Vegas 1 month before the wedding.  It was just the right amount of time to recover…yeesh!
