However, throwing a bridal shower party before the big day is a good idea if all the guests have traveled a long way to attend the wedding ceremony. This will allow the guests to know that you have gone out of your way to involve them in this close knit family and this will serve to strengthen the bond. The presence of all the guests will further serve to make your bridal shower that much more special and memorable.
