After selecting the gift-giving party cards, you add all of the important information about the event on the card, like RSVP contact details etc. Your guests should not have to confused. Additionally, if you have any special requests for guests, such as to keep the party a surprise, you should add that details to the card as well.
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.

The first thing you will want to ask yourself when you are thinking about a unique bridal shower invitation is, ’What is the theme of the shower. The theme is very important when you’re deciding what kind of invitations to send.
