Bridal Shower Invitation Ideas

Bridal shower invitation ideas are always about what's hot or what's familiar--with an original twist of course.  The essential role of the invitation is to set the scene for the fun to come, a necessary component for any celebratory event.  From extravagant to simple, the invitations should reflect the theme, style and formality of the shower in a compelling way.  The more thought that is put into the selection of the shower invitation design, the more guests will react with greater anticipation. 

When should you send out bridal shower invitations?  Between four to six weeks before the shower.  If there are many out-of-town guests, then eight weeks would be appropriate.

Bridal shower invitation ideas that add a
touch of style to "please come". 

Browse through our bridal shower invitations for the perfect match to your planned event.  But first, there is some necessary information that must be clearly communicated. 

Basic invitation information.

  • Name of the guest of honor.
  • The date and time of the event.
  • Venue.  Include the full address of the shower's location.
  • Name of the host, hostess, or if hosted by a group--list everyone.
  • Directions.  For those unfamiliar with the location, include a map or directions.
  • List where the bride or couple are registered to make gift buying easy.
  • If there is a gift theme, be sure to let guests know.  This is especially helpful when the bride has had multiple showers.
  • RSVP.  If included, all guests are expected to notify whether or not they plan to attend.  You may also opt for a deadline for replies.  If you choose "Regrets Only", then you can expect only guests that cannot attend to respond.
