      I didn't have a shower, but for my first marriage I had my shower about a month before the wedding

      Hi Heidi! My wedding is the week after yours, so I hope this helps.

      My bridesmaids are throwing my shower on Feb. 10th or 17th and then my bachelorette party is March 8th. I didn't want it much closer to the wedding. I wanted to be able to write Thank You notes without being in a complete panic because I had other important things to do.

      Hope that helps!

        We are close as far as our wedding dates, and I haven't had one yet.

        Tom's BM and wife asked if they can have a couples shower for us in February. I think Feb or March is when onbe of my girlfriends is planning a girls showe as well.

          I want to have mine sometime in late March or April. Probably April. About a month before. My sister and I are going to iron out the details as soon as school is over (next week!).

            My wedding date is near you guys too, and I think my shower is the 3rd weekend in march, so a month before we leave :)

            I hadn't thought of having one, but I was at my girlfriend's shower on Sunday and she's all stoked about organizing it and has even bought my gift! LOL

              Mine is going to be a surprise, my BMs won't tell me anything! I'm guessing it will be 3-4 months before the wedding, that is when my girlfriends and I usually plan for showers.

                  Hey Heidi-
                  my shower is on March 8th, about one month before the wedding. We are having a couples shower (thrown by my mom and friends of the family). We are having a "red stripe" themed shower with everything thing from a huge bucket of Red Stripe beers, red stripe beer bottle decorations to all Jamaican cuisine from a friend of mine that owns a Jamaican restaurant.
                  we are actually getting together this weekend to finalize the plans.

                  Heidi, I live 3000 miles away from all my bm's so we combined my bach party and bridal shower and just had a girls day. We went wine tasting, a nice dinner out and then a slumber party. We had it the last weekend in March, I had it super early just because it was spring break and a few of them are still in school and it was easier for me to travel that week. I also did a site visit that week.
                  Christine + Will (married 7/20/07) + Ainsleigh (born 6/25/08) + Nolan (born 11/9/10) + Delaney (born 12/31/13) = One Very Happy Family!
