    I am having my bridal shower the weekend before the wedding and doing the bachelorette party that same night since most people will be in town together that day!

      2 weeks before the wedding is ideal...

      This is the one thing I have found with planning a January wedding, especially early January.  I never really factored in Christmas Holidays and then New Years.  It makes it really tricky when planning things, such as showers.  I think mine will be sometime in early Decemeber as we depart early in January for our wedding and right immediately before that there is the holidays.

        Yeah it really does get tricky! If we were getting  married in Feb. I could have done the shower stuff after the Christmas Holidays, but it just too crammed and busy in January!

              I had this exact question. Our wedding is i Mexico and we live in Florida. So some who are coming to the wedding are flying to Florida for a few days and then to Mexico for the wedding. For this reason, we are considering doing the Bridal Shower/Bachelorette party the weekend before! It's daunting, but the best way to include as many people as possible. I hope that your shower went well and that your wedding is FABULOUS!

              We have decided on Nov. 12! My MOH is sending the invites out tomorrow! YAY!!  I think we will beat the bad weather, avoid the holidays, and have a GREAT time!

                My bridal shower/bachelorette party with friends only is two weeks prior to our wedding in February.  Our AHR is almost three months later in May so my official shower with family will be March or April.  So busy and it seems to never end just to please so many people!

                  You'd think that as DW brides we'd be past the whole "pleasing people" thing... Never seems to end =D 

                  Your wedding is soooooo soon! You must be so ridiculously excited!
