Okay guys, I apologize in advance for talking about my wedding on and off for the next year. I will do my best to keep most things under wraps, but I NEED your help on a matter.
We have finally picked a date of June 9th, 2018! Yay!! A little more a year to plan!
The problem is, I have 6 wonderful bridesmaids. My sister being one of them, and then 5 of my closest gal pals. We are all super supportive of one another, which is why when 4 of them decided to move away from Ontario, we hugged, laughed, had some drinks, said our goodbyes, and continued to be the super awesome friends we are today.
I hope you can see my problem forming already. Obviously I want them to be involved in a much as possible, and vice versa, but considering the space between us we are finding it somewhat difficult to accommodate.
To add to the mix, one of my besties (also one of my bridesmaids) is ALSO engaged. And her fiancee and her plan on tieing the knot a few months after us in September.
Her and I understand how hard/expensive it is going to be for all of them to fly back twice next year for wedding festivities among other reasons they may need or want to come home for a visit. So that’s where the issue begins.
Have I lost you yet?
So basically what I need your advice/opinion on is:
HOW SOON IS TO SOON TO HAVE A WEDDING SHOWER?
After asking my friends when they will be home within the next year to try and plan things around them. They really only ‘slightly’ overlap at the end of this July… still 11 months away from my wedding?
Will people get the wrong idea so far in advance?
Will they understand the only reason is cause the wedding party is pretty much the cast of the Hobbit and they are ALWAYS on adventures? 😉
So should I suck it up, and wait until next April with the chances of only 2 of my six bridesmaids there? Or should I have a shotgun shower and potentially have 4 or 5 of my six bridesmaids there?
