If you are a member of a wedding party, particularly if you hold the position of maid of honor, you have a large responsibility.  It is your job to throw the bride a bridal shower.  Of course, a large part of that event is arranging what the invitations will look like.  The style is important, but the wording is essential as well.  The way you word an invitation conveys the entire feel of a bridal shower.  Some invitations are made to invite guests to a very formal bridal shower while others much more casual.  Plus, you may be wondering how to bring up the issue of gift registries without being too forward or tacky.

 

For formal bridal shower invitations, both the wording and font come together to make the presentation formal.  Formal cursive in a black font looks very proper.  Whether you are writing your own custom phrasing or plugging names and dates into a template, look for wording that is straight forward and to the point.  Numbers are often spelled out in formal invites, such as “the third of June at five o’clock in the evening.”  Be sure to include RSVP information, such as, “Regrets only to 555-1234.”

 

For more casual showers, a quirky rhyme may be used to put a smile on the face of your guests as they read the bridal shower invitations.  Something like, “She’s all grown up, but still giggling with glee!  Please join us to honor the sweetest bride-to-be,” may work perfectly for a more casual shower.  Fun, bubbly fonts and bright colors may be called for on the invite along with charming images of brides, flowers and birds.  Numbers are usually written as digits, such as, “June 3 at 5:00 pm.”  Still, do not forget RSVP details, perhaps in the form of, “RSVP to Holly at 555-1234.”

 

Including your registry information can be an interesting challenge.  You can choose to include a card in each that the shop supplied you with.  You could also simply type out a tactful phrase at the end like “Jenny is registered at Bed Bath & Beyond” or “Bridal registry information is available at Pottery Barn.”  If you do not want to include this in your bridal shower invitations, you can always choose to simply inform people when they RSVP.  Also, be sure to include the address of the event along with the date and time.  Directions can be useful if guests are not familiar with the location.
