How to Word Bridal Shower Invitations

Whether you’re throwing a wedding shower for your B.F.F., family member or heck, even yourself, you’ll want to invite properly. Ditch the text message invite. Say buh-bye to the last-minute email invitation. Instead, send a real invitation that sets the tone for the event!

Guests will absolutely love receiving a real piece of happy mail in the mailbox and our cheap bridal shower invites are so inexpensive you’ll flip!

When you sit down to word your bridal shower invitation, there are some key pieces of information that are vital. Others are helpful, but not necessary. Here are the rules of wording bridal shower invitations, plus helpful examples. Go ahead, steal away, we don’t mind!

How to Word Your Wedding Announcement

BRIDAL SHOWER INVITATION WORDING: THE MUST-HAVES

Here are the three things every bridal shower invitation needs to include:

THE GUEST OF HONOR’S NAME

It seems like a big “duh”, but don’t forget to mention the bride’s name. Or, the couple’s name if you’re having a couple’s shower.

DATE AND TIME

You might be surprised how many times we see people forget the date or time of the celebration.

LOCATION AND ADDRESS

Folks need to know where to go, so add in the location, as well as the address, if needed. If you’re hosting the shower in a public venue in a smaller town, the name of the location only is probably fine. Know your guest list and use common sense when it comes to adding an address.

BRIDAL SHOWER INVITATION MIGHT-HAVES

And these are the things you might want to add to your bridal shower invite:

RSVP-BY DATE AND CONTACT INFORMATION

If you need a head count, be sure to request that guests RSVP. Add a name, contact information and reply-by date.

HOSTESS(ES)

Adding the names of the shower host or hostess to the invitation is a wise idea! Guests will appreciate knowing who’s throwing the celebration.

REGISTRY INFORMATION

No, you should not add registry information to your wedding invitations, but you can add it on bridal shower invites! Why? Because the entire purpose of a wedding shower is to shower the guest-of-honor with gifts!
