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.
The first and foremost thing to consider while planning for a bridal shower is to decide theme of the party. You should try to think out of the box so as to make the party unique and interesting. While deciding the theme of the party it is best to consider the tastes, preferences and personality of the bride.
Decorations – One of the best things about throwing a bridal shower is choosing the decorations. Decorations for your shower should pull together the look you’re trying to. The decorations at a bridal shower are very important, particularly if it will be themed. Your decorations can be bright and dramatic, or soft and romantic. Confer with the bridesmaids about the theme of the bridal shower, establish a budget, and finalize decision about decorations, menu, favors, and music and bridal shower games.
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.
Be sure to plan your bridal shower and order your bridal shower invitations at least 8-12 weeks in advance. If you have many out of town guests attending you may want to mail the bridal shower invitations as early as 6 weeks in advance so everyone is sure to reserve the date for your party so that they can attend. Bridal shower invitations should not only invite your guests to the event, they should contain clear instructions on the location of the shower, any theme that is being used for the bridal shower and an RSVP card that can help you determine the number of guests attending you can expect at the bridal shower. You can always find an approach that will fit your budget from basic one layer bridal invitations all the way up to more expensive and higher quality layered approaches. Paying attention to the little details when it comes to bridal shower invitations can make a nice statement with your guests and provide them with an elegant keepsake of the Bridal shower.
