My mom asked me to get feedback from you all... haha
She is worrying about the wedding shower. We live in Texas, but the wedding and both families are in Ohio. Plane tickets are outrageous right now, often over $400. I'll be home twice before Christmas for my BFFs' weddings and then hopefully at Christmas. The goal is to have most everything set with vendors by then, and any last details can be done via phone or Skype.
Here's the dilemma, what do we do for a shower? Money is tight and we don't know if we can afford/if it's worth it to fly home in the spring for a shower, but we both (especially my mom) want to do one. Since all of my wedding details are coming together, it really would be a flight just for a shower. We discussed maybe doing a couples shower/engagement party the weekend after Christmas, but we're afraid it's too early. Plus there are scheduling around Christmas challenges, and the real possibility of a snow storm ruining the event. Anyone facing similar issues? Is six months in advance too early for a shower? Any thoughts you all have as a bride and/or guest? Feedback is much appreciated.
