Traditionally: Just before the wedding or a few months before. Our Take: Give yourself time to set a venue, send out invites before people's calendars are set, etc. Also, keep the couple in mind: Will they be too overwhelmed to enjoy a relaxing shindig if it's really close to the wedding?
In some cases, it's appropriate for all guests to pick up a portion of the costs for a shower. For example, an invitation to a restaurant bridal shower might read, "We'll celebrate with a Dutch lunch (entrees cost about บ), followed by cake and champagne in the garden." A spa invitation might read, "We've got the room reserved at XYZ spa. Call the spa directly to book your appointment. Instead of a present, please bring ษ to pay for the bride's treatments and send her on her way with a deluxe spa gift certificate."
