Bridal Shower Invitations
Not every bride-to-be holds a bridal shower. If you like the idea, embrace the occasion as an excellent excuse for a get-together. Attended by family and friends, a bridal shower is a chance for well-wishers to give thoughtful presents to the bride as a token of their support for the marriage.
Invitations to bridal showers are usually fun and informal. As such are a perfect opportunity to get creative with your invitation design. A custom-printed personalized invitation is always a popular choice. Pre-printed fill-in invitations are also commonplace.
Usually one or more of the bride’s friends host the shower. Either the hostess or hostesses’ names should appear at the top of the invitations. When a shower has a theme it should be mentioned in either the lower left-or the lower right-hand corner.
And speaking of themes, referencing yours in your paper or ink coloring, invite design or even your choice of font is a smart, playful way to make your invitation stand out from the crowd. For example, green elements might be perfect for a gardening or golfing theme, while an engraved font would complement the sophistication of a shower focused on a literature theme. The sky really is the limit, so get creative and have some fun.
