Stock_the_Bar Shower: You might call this using a bridal shower as an excuse to drink, but I call it great fun. It's like throwing a cocktail party but with gifts. Put together an awesome playlist and some pitchers of cocktails or perhaps a champagne punch. Of course, you'll also want some chic hors d'oeuvres for nibbling.
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?
