Bridal Shower Timing (in proximity to wedding)
Hi ladies :) My Mom and FMIL are throwing me a shower. The problem is that my parents will be traveling to Florida (from Michigan) during the months of February, March and part of April (they are snowbirds). My wedding is May 19, 2012. Our choice for the shower date are either Late January (Jan. 22) or mid-April (Apr. 8 or 15). January is 4 months before the wedding and April is only 4 weeks before the wedding. My Mom and I think January is fine, a bit early, but still OK. FMIL is worried about a snow storm in January (a slim to none chance), but is still OK with January. I would prefer to have it in January because it allows my mother and I plenty of time after the shower to focus on the wedding. Also, I need to fit in my Bachelorette party sometime in April (after my Mom gets home). In Michigan, anywhere from 1-3 months before the wedding is normal timing for a bridal shower. So, the question becomes, is 4 months before the wedding too early to throw a shower?
