With all of today’s styles and designs, bridal shower invitations can be as unique and personal as the invitations to the actual wedding.
To help with your shower invitation planning, here are answers to questions you may already have and a few questions you may not have considered…
Is there a theme for the shower or an overall theme for the wedding?
Whether it’s a kitchen shower, bridal tea, garden luncheon, brunch, lingerie shower, couples shower, etc., you may be able to find a matching shower invitation design. The design along with the wording you choose will also reveal to guests the type of shower you are planning.
What information is included on the invitation?
Typically included are the bride’s name (or both names for a couples shower), the names of those hosting the bridal shower, the date and time as well as the name and address of the venue or location.
Knowing how many guests will be attending ahead of time can be helpful in your planning so consider including an RSVP phone number or email address at the bottom of the invite.
For a surprise shower, be sure to also mention that prominently on the invitation so guests know the secrecy of the party.
If the wedding couple has completed gift registries, those stores can be listed on the shower invitation or on a separate insert card.
What are some unique ideas when it comes to wedding shower invitations?
Including a recipe card for sharing a favorite recipe or an advice card for sharing marriage advice with the shower invites is a great way to have guests create special mementos for the newlyweds to cherish for years to come.
Bridal shower invitations announce the celebration that will be held to shower the bride with gifts before her wedding day so make sure they are uniquely special to fit the occasion.
