You’re good to leave early if you need to – follow Maggie’s advice and don’t try to slip out (thank the host, say goodbye to the bride, etc.). I agree with PPs, as long as you let people know in advance, it’s totally fine.
Is it bad to miss a bridal shower?
If you need to skip the shower-in the event that it’s a life-or-death situation, you can’t afford to travel for the party, or you already committed to a vacation or work event before the shower was planned-it’s understandable if you don’t attend. But “skip” implies that you’re able to go, just not necessarily willing.
Should a bridal shower be on a Saturday or Sunday?
Showers typically take place on a Saturday or Sunday anywhere from two months to three weeks before the wedding. The exact time of day will be up to your hosts, but they’ll likely plan a brunch, a luncheon or an afternoon tea that lasts three to four hours.
What is the etiquette for bridal shower gifts?
Keeping the 20-20-60 Rule in mind, a bridal shower gift should be about one-third the price of your wedding gift. However, what you spend comes down to your relationship with the bride or groom, and your budget. Typically, shower gifts should be between $25 to $75.
What is supposed to happen at a bridal shower?
When all is said and done, what is a bridal shower? It’s a pre-wedding party to gather the bride’s closest family members and friends for an afternoon in her honor. Guests will enjoy food and drink together, bring gifts, play games, and socialize before she ties the knot.
How far in advance should bridal shower invites be sent out?
If many guests will be local, aim to send the invites four to six weeks before the event. A bridal shower involving many out-of-towners, on the other hand, requires more advanced notice. Six or eight weeks should be sufficient time for long-distance guests to make transportation and lodging arrangements.
