Ideally, bridal shower thank you cards should be sent no more than two weeks after the shower, but even if you forget, it is never too late to say thank you. Each and every attendant is to be thanked whether they brought a gift or not. Do not combine the thank you cards with any other type of card. For example, if two guests came to the bridal shower, and only one had given a gift, send each one a thank you card specifically for coming to the bridal shower, but then include an acknowledgment of the gift given by the one who presented it to you.
Did you know by tradition, it is actually not the immediate relatives that host the bridal shower but the friends and several distant relatives of the bride who host the event. Generally, considered to be the best way to pep-up the bride to be before her marriage, this is the perfect occasion to pamper her with gifts. Being the host you will do your best to make this day memorable for her. But have you decided on the design for the bridal shower cards? The invitation is said to mark the beginning of the celebration and surely you would want it to be the best one.
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.
Remember to thank the host/hostess, and if possible attach a gift to go along with the note of thanks, for all the love and hard work that had been put into the event. The gift could be an ornament, a box of chocolates or anything that would be of value to him/her, and which is not too costly. In the card mention the gift received and the success of the bridal shower with a personal compliment to the person.
Place Card Holders – Looking for something that features a dual function? Place card holders are the answer. Practically speaking, if you are on a tight budget, what better way to cut down expenses is to look for an item that can serve multi purposes. Instead of purchasing a real favor that will only serve as a party souvenir, why not consider place card holders that can double as your party souvenirs. They serve as card holders at first and party giveaways at the end of the day. You can find different place card holders with different designs and styles. Just make sure to choose holders that fits the theme of your bridal shower.
