Tips and Etiquette For Bridal Shower Invitations



As the maid of honor, the task of sending out the bridal shower invitations falls to you but there’s no need to panic because this is the perfect chance for you to throw a wonderful party for the bride. Make sure you send out the invitations two to three weeks before the bridal shower; that way everybody has enough notice and plenty of time to choose gifts.

You can make your own bridal shower invitations or you can purchase them locally or online. The advantage of making them yourself is that you can choose the colors, find a beautiful font online and create a design that follows the theme of the bridal shower. As for materials, you’ll find everything you need at a local craft store. However, if you’re short on time, go for pre-made cards instead.

What really matters is the theme you’ve chosen for the bridal shower itself; make sure this theme is mirrored in your invitations. For a bridal shower with a garden tea party theme, try to find invitations with a cute flower or ladybug on. You’ll most likely play bridal shower games, which incorporate the shower theme, so try to keep everything uniform and choose invitations that will give your guests a good impression of how the shower will be.

If you want your guests to bring something special to the bridal shower, don’t forget to include this on your invitation or put an extra piece of card in the envelope with the information written on it.

If the bride has chosen you as her maid of honor then you probably know her really well and have a good idea of what she likes and doesn’t like. So after you’ve chosen a theme for the invitations, made or purchased them, and sent them out, then all you need to do is celebrate this exciting time in the bride’s life.
