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?
Our Take: If you're one of those people who traditionally takes over the bridal shower duties, assess your boundaries and capabilities. What are your financial (and time and effort) limits? Make your line in the sand and stick to it. Communicate what you can and can't accomplish__to the couple, family, other party members, or anyone else who might fall into unreasonable and over_demanding zones. Enlist help when you need it, whether it's making favors, hunting down RSVPs or doing food prep. And yes, it's probably still best not to invite people that aren't invited to the wedding, because ouch.
