Six Tips To Get Your Bridal Shower Invitations Right



It doesn’t matter who you’re planning the bridal shower for, your invitations will create the first impression for your guests. So, if you want to start on the right foot, here are some great ideas for when it comes to inviting your guests.

Tip 1 – Short Notice Bridal Shower Invitations

A great time saver when you’re in a hurry is to send your bridal shower invitations online or by SMS. If you can’t decide on a design, take a look at some different websites and then make your own. Bridal magazines are also full of great ideas.

Tip 2 – Invitations to Challenge the Brain

Surprise your guests with an invitation that gets them thinking rather than the usual easy to read invite. Everybody loves a brainteaser so why not include a crossword in your invitation or a word hunt box.

Tip 3 – Three Dimensional Invitations

Delight your guests by sending out invitations in little boxes instead of an envelope. Carefully fold up your invitations and place them in a jewelry box or handmade origami boxes. You can find other great ideas in origami books or websites.

Tip 4 - Blank Slate

Send out blank bridal shower invitations and keep your guests wondering why. It will add an air of mystery to your party. Consider using mystery fiction stories, for a little inspiration. Keep them entertained by surprising them with your invitation.

Tip 5 – Text Designs

Go for a simple yet impressive design that will be remembered by all your guests. Keep the outside of the invitations simple. For example, add an elegant drawing of a single rose with a touching poem or text inside the card. A friend who loves to write will be able to help you out and together you can write a beautiful text for guests to cherish. Try different fonts and choose your colors wisely.

Tip 6 – Choosing Materials

There’s a wealth of different materials you can use for your bridal shower invitations. You can choose paper with different textures, designs, thickness or styles; your local bookshop will give you some great ideas too. The possibilities are endless when it comes to decorating your invitations and adding some glitter or sequins will give it that extra sparkle.
