SHOWER/BLETTE COMBOS = MAKING THINGS CONVENIENT FOR YOU AND OUT OF TOWNERS

Coordinating schedules and getting people in one place- for a shower/bachelorette party- can be a logistical nightmare.

Oftentimes, friends and family are scattered about the country (or coming in from another one!), and it's important to remember this - even when you as the bride are not planning the activities.

So what happens if a lot attendees are from out of town? My suggestion? Combine, combine, combine.

For people traveling, it's great to fly in for the bachelorette party on a Saturday night, and then go to the shower on the day following.

Alternatively - think you're b-party will be too rowdy, leaving you hungover and tired to meet your parents' friends the following day? Have your b-party on a Friday, and the shower on a Sunday. That leaves you room for down-time and hanging out w/ out of towners on Saturday.

Keep the lines of communication open with your MOH or whomever is planning the events. Don't rest on your I'm the bride" laurels!

If your friends are relaxed and not stressed about coming in for an event - the more fun they will have - and the more fun you will have, too!

Stay tuned!
