Timing-bridal showers are usually held within 2 months to 2 weeks before the wedding day. This gives you time to plan out your guests and gift registry. But it’s also one of the last steps before your big day and the excitement is real! Typically the maid of honor plans the bridal shower so you will want to coordinate with each other to decide on the timing of the event. The bridal shower is the time for you to have some quality time and celebrations with your closest ladies before the big day!
Guests-similar to the engagement party, you want to make sure you only invite people who are also invited to the wedding! Typically bridal showers are just for the girls however, it’s more and more common today to have a boy and girl or “Jack and Jill” themed bridal shower, simply called a wedding shower. This is a fun way to let the groom and all the men in on the fun. Either way, the wedding shower is more exclusive than the wedding and consists of your closest friends and family!
