When to Have the Bridal Shower: A bridal shower can be held anywhere from six months to a week before a wedding. If many guests are traveling from out of town, it may make sense to have it closer to the wedding so they can attend. Otherwise, four to eight weeks before the wedding is a good rule of thumb: it adds just enough anticipation, without creating more stress for the bride. Any time of day is acceptable for a bridal shower. Many bridal showers are held during the afternoon or early evening as a luncheon or dinner party. Brunch bridal showers are not uncommon either.
Why Should You Have a Non_Traditional Bridal Shower? A bridal shower is a centuries_old tradition that was meant to help a bride set up her new home. But nowadays, many brides are older and have already set up a home. Their cupboards are already full of pots, pans, and dishes, but they still want to be celebrated by their friends. And it seems that the older a bride gets, the less she __ or her friends __ wants to play bridal shower games.
