Bridal Shower perfect timing
Just when you thought it difficult to find the perfect date for your wedding, you have to find another one for your bridal shower 🙂
The main thing is: don’t hold it to close to your wedding and equally don’t hold it too early.
One to three months before you get married is the sweet spot for bridal shower timing. That’s because it’s a little unfair to wedding guests to stretch out marriage celebrations in your honor for more than a few months (besides the engagement party). Plus, pre-wedding events, like bridal showers and bachelorette parties, are great for building momentum for the main event (aka your wedding). When a bridal shower is say, six months before your nuptials, your guests’ excitement for your wedding will likely die down well before the wedding invitations go out.
Throwing a bridal shower less than a month before the wedding day also isn’t ideal for a few reasons. Firstly, you’ll be so busy with last-minute wedding arrangements that you won’t have time to write out a couple dozen bridal shower thank-you cards. And second of all, guests who are giving you bridal shower gifts and wedding presents could use more than a couple of weeks to recover from spending money on you.
In the end , however much ahead of your wedding it is, tell the lovely ladies hosting your bridal shower that you’d prefer they didn’t throw it on a holiday.
