I need some thoughts. My wedding is June 18th, 2016 and I'm getting married in my hometown which is a four hour drive from where I currently live. A decent number of my guests will be travelling for the wedding, the bachelorette party, and some for the bridal shower too. Because of this I would like to have my bacheloretty party be the same week as my wedding to make it easier on me and my girlfriends. Now, when my cousin got married she had her bachelorette party on the same day as she had her bridal shower and I really liked how that worked out. She did this maybe a month or so before the wedding though.
I guess my question is: How close is too close to have a bridal shower to the wedding?
I don't want to exhaust my family and guests (and myself) with all the events being too close but I want to be as efficient as possible with all of the travelling.
