time. The invitation is the first opportunity you have to set the
mood and the stage for a great first meeting of the two families.
So before you book the caterer, incorporate some of these quirky
tips in your shower invitation.
The most important thing is to create an upbeat and cheerful environment.
So when you begin to plan your favorite bride’s bridal shower
make sure to include all the usual significant details: location,
date, time, reason, etc. Be sure that you include any contact information in your bridal shower invitations so that those not able to attend can notify you and so that you
can acquire an accurate head count of those who do plan to be present.
After all the mundane details are taken care of and properly arranged,
include a witty saying so that your guests will feel at ease and
set the mood for a great party. You can be as silly as you want
and your guests will be thrilled and excited to attend this bridal
shower. This one is sure to please your guests.
“With one hand holding his heart,
He asked ‘Maya, will you be my forever?’
And since her answer was yes,
This bridal shower must be the best!”
If cutesy isn’t the way the bride would typically behave,
you can surprise your guests by spicing up the invitation a bit.
Start by designing the card to be quite dainty and girly on the
outside; include as much pink lace and jewels as you can handle.
While the outside resembles a princess theme, the inside will boast
a sultry, mischievous poem. Depending on the bride, these antidotes
can be as bad or as good as you like. The one below is sure to show
your guests that this is sure to be a bridal shower like they have
never experienced before.
“Since they met at a park
And kissed until it grew dark
Her bridal shower has to be done right –
Long and intense all night!”
It doesn’t matter what you write in your invitation as long
as it is enticing to your guests. Your goal is to persuade everyone
who is invited to come have a great time and share in the incredible
evening that you have planned. The invitation is the doorway into
the bridal shower so the card is pertinent in establishing a relaxed
atmosphere that both family and friends will be able to enjoy.
By including these delightful rhymes in your invitation; you are
sure to have your guests smiling, if not laughing hysterically.
The bride will appreciate your enthusiasm for her special day and
will be sure to keep the invitation as a symbol of your effort and
enthusiasm that you put into her bridal shower.
