If you have out of town guests, this will also allow you some time to arrange accommodations at a local hotel. With group booking you can usually get a discount on the room rate for your out of town guests. This information can also be included in your invitations.
Cards can be bought either online or through retail outlets. You should carefully choose the card and give special emphasis to the color and quality of the material of the card. There are also many green choices available for the cards so you can buy cards that are made of environment friendly material too. If your friend has planned a green wedding, then this type of card would be ideal. There are many special motifs that can be used on the cards. These motifs reflect the theme of the party, like a lingerie party can have some lingerie motif and so on.
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.
Useful Party Favors – For more useful and practical ideas, consider party favors that can be used after the shower. They can be anything from gorgeous, playful to fun lovely bridal shower favors. You can choose from among of these practical items: personalized hand fans; tape measures; playing cards; pepper shakers; key rings; mugs; towels; purse hooks; bookmarks and etc.
Making Sure You Match – Bridal shower invitations should, if possible, be approached as a set which includes the invitation, RSVP card and return envelope and a letter seal for the main invitation envelope. You can go a long way in showing your attention to detail and style by making sure these items match both in design and color but also in paper stock. Again, a knowledgeable designer will always have these things in mind when you engage them to create your invitations.
