Creating the perfect bridal shower invitations is an important part of throwing a successful and memorable bridal shower. Here are a few things you must consider to make sure the invitations are well received, personal, detailed and effective.
Don’t assume that you know every person that should be invited to the bridal shower. The bride might have co-workers, relatives or childhood friends you might miss if you don’t check with her first. Even worse – you might invite someone that she really don’t want at the party. Make sure you have a finalized list before you start with the invitations!
The brides wedding colors are very important and they will be used through the whole wedding – from save the date to thank you cards. Even though the bride is not the one throwing the shower and purchasing the invitations, make sure you’re using her wedding colors on the bridal shower invites.
Select a design that represents the bride. If you know her well, this shouldn’t be hard: is she classy and elegant? Perhaps an invitation with a floral border? Does she like theme parties? Tea party, garden party, beach party? If you don’t know the bride well enough, talk to her friends and family.
Have several friends or family members read the invitation to make sure you haven’t left out something important. Confirm date and time, address of the bridal shower location, RSVP contact, registry details and directions. And spelling!
The wording on a bridal shower invitation doesn’t have to be formal – so feel free to add a poem or a funny line and make it one of a kind!
