The guest of honour’s name
Begin with an introduction and then state the bride’s name. We recommend only including both partners’ names if both are guests of honour. This is great for a big party or a co-ed bridal shower.
Here are some examples:
“Please join us for a bridal shower honouring Elizabeth Wicker!”
“Help us shower Elizabeth with love.”
“Pop! Fizz! Clink! Twirl! Help us celebrate our favourite girl!”
The bridal shower theme
If you are having a theme, include this in your bridal shower invitation. This will help guests to dress accordingly and give them a taste of what’s to come.
Some fun bridal shower theme ideas:
- Brunch and bubbly
- A Friends theme (or whatever her favourite show or movie is)
- Garden tea party
Date, time and location
It’s important to state that this information should be clear and easily legible. Keep your fonts simple, big enough and spell out the month instead of using numerals. Adding an end date is completely optional but this will give guests clarity on how much of the day they should set aside. If you are hosting the bridal shower at a venue, you can simply state the name and area. We recommend including the address too if the bridal shower is taking place at somebody’s home.
How and when to RSVP
Plenty of people forget to include these details, so we’re here to remind you to do so. List the phone number or email address, along with the RSVP date.
The name of the host
This isn’t required, but it’s always nice to include the name of the person or people hosting the bridal shower.
Here are some examples:
“Hosted by Aunt Jacqui, Aunt Michelle and Aunt Wendy.”
“Hosted by her loving bridesmaids.”
Below is a short list of optional additional details you might want to add:
- The dress code (if applicable).
- Gift information (a link to the wedding registry is acceptable).
- If you are asking guests to bring anything, add that information.
