My sister is getting married in May...so we were talking about my baby shower and she made the comment that anytime before her wedding wasn't an option and the few weeks after aren't because she'll be on her honeymoon (which yeah i get that part). My mom and her are throwing me a shower for that side of the family- so the soonest time we can do it would be June 22nd (other conflicts in June with other ppl)- which I will be less than a month from being due.
I totally understand shying away from May but a part of me wants to have one in April for a few reasons. I could be on bed rest the last month, or I could give birth early or maybe I'll just be to uncomfortable at that point. What do you guys think? Also my sis said her and my mom want to do it on a Sunday not a Saturday because they wanna be able to go on the river (its something we do every weekend & I'm too a huge river rat but I figured we'd skip one or go out afterwards). Now while Sunday would be fine but one of my bffs, prob wont be able to come on a Sunday due to work and she lives 3 hours away. I tried saying nicely that I'd prefer it on a Saturday so she said we'll just do a brunch (which that's fine but kinda just wanna a say so here). Also that they were going to do it at our church-which is fine but I have over 50 ppl on my list (just family and close friends) and I had my mind set on somewhere else and I've mentioned it a few times. I just kinda feel like I should get a say?
I'm planning her bridal shower and I would have never told her where it would be or what day. Maybe I'm just a lil hurt-I want her to have a wondeful wedding and I don't want to take anything away from her. I'm probably just being overly sensative and I def don't wanna make it a big deal but I guess my question is: do you think having one in late June would work- and take a chance. I'm due July 18th. Anyone else having a shower around a month before?
