For this informal event, and unlike wedding cards, which have more etiquette. So the ideas can be fewer limits.
If you have the time, hand write your invitations. The guests will appreciate the personal touch.
Purchase or download card or invitation making programs and create your own wedding shower invitations. And party stores have plenty of wedding shower invitation options. Choose a style matching the shower’s theme or the wedding décor.
A stationery store has many different paper or card stock options. Pick up a pretty or unusual pattern and print the invitations. Vellum is a popular material for wedding and wedding shower invitations.
Are all your guests local? Consider printing up an elegant invitation and rolling it into a scroll. Tie with a satin ribbon and hand deliver to each guest’s mailbox. While this can also be done via the mail, unless you purchase expensive special mailers, your invitations can arrive crushed.
Create a photo invitation. Use the bride and groom’s engagement photo, a childhood photo from the bride, or a group picture of the bride and many of the guests in attendance.
There’s really no need to worry about formal wording for shower invites. Since there really aren’t any rules regarding invitations, there aren’t any hard and fast rules regarding the wording. If the event is formal, you’ll want formal wording to reflect the occasion.
List the name of the hostess, the date and time and the address. A more informal invitation can say almost anything providing it’s in good taste. Enjoy your wedding shower occasion!
