Proper Etiquette To Designing and Mailing Your Bridal Shower Invitations

Choosing the bridal shower invitations and sending them to guests are usually taken care of by the bride’s maid of honor. If you are the person the bride has chosen to be her maid of honor, it’s time to get creative and let your style, along with the whims of the bride, sparkle.

Before you choose the invitations, talk to the bride and ask her what theme she would like to use. If she wants an outdoor party, choose invitations with a nature theme such as ivy, leaves or petals. Make your invitations even more special by sending them with a pressed flower inside. On the other hand, if the party’s going to be held in nightclub, you could send a picture of a small cute shaker of margarita salt along with the invitation. When you are creating your bridal shower invitations, let your imagination take over.

What Should Be In The Invitation

When you send your invitations, write one per guest; for couples, you need to only send one invitation with both their names on it. Include any details such as items you would like your guests to bring. If the bridal shower has a kitchen theme, you might want each guest to bring a recipe. Send a blank index card along with the invitation and scribble a note asking guests to write out their favorite recipe. At the end of the shower, you can present the bride-to-be with the recipes in a big book.

When To Send Out Bridal Shower Invitations

Give your guests plenty of time to find the perfect gift by sending the invitations out at least two weeks before the bridal shower. However, don’t send them any earlier than three weeks before the date of the party and don’t send them out too late. Otherwise, you might find that your guests have already made plans for that evening.

How To RSVPs

Ask your guests to RSVP if they intend to join the celebrations but bear in mind that the RSVP isn’t as popular these days so don’t be surprised if you don’t hear back from some people. When you’ve sent out all the invitations, it’s time to start planning the bridal shower and, at the same time, have some fun. Remember to call up the guests who didn’t respond a few days before the shower so you can make certain of their plans.
