We often skip to consider a few important things when finalizing bridal shower cards. Make sure that you keep the following things in mind: 1. Theme – This is one important pointer you need to keep in mind while finalizing the gift-giving party invitation. Bridal shower cards should serve as a miniature of the event. The designing, color and style of the invite should be in perfect synchronization with the theme of the event. 2. Bride’s Preference – Being the guest of honor, it is very important to know bride’s preferences. The cards should coordinate well with her personality, style and taste. 3. Color – An array of colors should be used for the invitation as it reflects the mood of the event. Usually one should go for bright colors as they are more attractive and have an enticing effect. 4. Style – The styling of the invite includes the choice of colors keeping the theme and preferences in mind. Your style should attract and excite the guests. 5. Labeling -It becomes very important to properly label your invite to avoid miscommunication and hindrances in the event.
Favors – Favors are not a requirement, but they are a fun way to share your wedding day memories. Bridal shower favors are often personalized with the name of the bride, or of the bride and groom and the date of the wedding. The most precious favors are those that celebrate the bride’s personal style and incorporate the theme of the party. The favors, which serve as small mementos for each of your party guests, should also fit the theme. The selection of party favors is endless. Just remember, the favors you choose should be feminine, elegant, and practical.
Getting Your Bridal Shower Invitations Out on Time – You want to make sure that your bridal shower invitations are put in the mail with plenty of time for your guests to respond and for you to get a clear count on your guest list. A good time frame for mailing is 2-3 months prior to the bridal shower.
Not all bridal shower invitations are created equal. Depending on which approach you choose, you can wind up with invitations that vary greatly in terms of quality. Off the shelf invitations are usually created with standard card stock while handmade invitations allow you choose your paper and allow you to use high quality blends that are much nicer to the touch. With off the shelf bridal shower invitations you also run the risk of using invitations that perhaps some of your friends have used in the past. Because your guests may keep the invitation well into the future as a keepsake, it is a good choice to go for quality when choosing your bridal shower invitations.
A bridal shower is a fun way for a friends and family to celebrate her, prior to the wedding whether it is an afternoon luncheon party, a spa retreat, or night on the town, the Bridal shower is always a highly anticipated part of the wedding festivities. Throwing a bridal shower is the perfect way to show the bride how much you care and is a great opportunity to create wonderful, long lasting memories with friends and family.
