When to Throw a Bridal Shower

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 Throw a Bridal Shower - Date
Bridal Showers are usually given four to six weeks before the Wedding date.  Having the Bridal shower well before the Bridal's due date is a good idea as Bridal's sometimes like to arrive early! Having the shower well before the due date means the bride to be can enjoy it more! The new parents can then see what gifts have been given to them and buy anything extra they might need. It also gives parents to be more time to prepare for the arrival of their new Bridal. After the Bridal shower the bride will want to wash the clothes that she has been given, put everything away and still have the energy to go shopping for any other items she needs!  If the shower is held too close to the babies due date then the bride to be might not have the energy to do all this!

When to Throw a Bridal Shower - Welcome Shower
It is getting popular to host a Bridal shower after the Bridal's arrival. This type of celebration is known as either a Bridal Shower or more commonly a Welcome Shower. A Welcome Shower gives guests the opportunity to buy gender specific gifts and is a great chance for close family and friends to meet the new addition. Having a Welcome Shower gives the new parents more time to spend with their new addition as they are seeing everyone at the same time! Entertaining visitors can be stressful for new parents who would rather spend the precious time together with their new Bridal instead of entertaining a never ending stream of visitors over a period of weeks. It is also popular to hold Welcome Showers are for adopted babies.
