Which dates do you think would be best for the shower?

Note: These "dates" are just estimates to get a basic idea of the timeline we are looking for. Once we decide on that, we will pick specific dates.

We will pick:

The date partners are assigned (which ultimately decides the final deadline to sign up)

The date to mail out (meaning you can mail out no later than that specific date, but you are free to mail before if you need to. As of right now, we only have US members interested in participating which means time in transit should be no longer than 7 days and each item would make it on time if shipped on time)

The date to open our gifts
(it's a shower, therefore we should be attempting to open our gifts together to share.)

I feel like in both of these options we are assuming things will arrive the day after they are shipped...

I'd say something like...

Partners assigned at the end of April; Mail out middle of May; open June 1
or
Partners assigned at the end of April; Mail out end of May; open middle of June

We'll set specific dates after we get a general idea I do a lot of swapping, and we always set the date specifically... like if Partners assigned at the end of April; Mail out end of May; open June 1 won in reality it would end up being

(just example dates!)
Partners assigned April 25; Mail out May 25; open June 1

That way everyone knows the exact deadlines... everyone mails the same day and typically set about 7 days prior to opening date (unless there are international participants, then we have a secondary mailout date, earlier, to make sure they get their packages on time). Then we only open as long as everyone has received their package... if they haven't, we wait until it's arrived. BUT so far everyone seems to be US and if everyone mails on time, there's no reason it wouldn't arrive on time

Okay, that makes sense. My post office must be slow because sometimes I order things and once it ships, it still takes 10-14 days to get to me :/
