When to Send Invitations

Bridal Shower Etiquette!
If you are throwing a Bridal Shower then as the host you will want to make sure that you follow the correct Etiquette code and rules. Etiquette refers to the ceremonial code of polite society. Obviously things have changed in modern times but, just like weddings, there are still rules of etiquette for Showers.

When to Send Invitations
It is customary to send Bridal Shower Invitations six weeks before the shower to give guests enough notice. Venues get booked up months in advance and even if the venue is someone's home, guests need plenty of warning! If people have to travel then they need to make travel arrangements. People with children may need to organize childcare and depending on the time of day the Bridal shower is being held and workers may need to book a days vacation. This all takes time so it is best to give guests as much notice as you can.
