Your wedding shower invitation wording will set the tone for your entire wedding shower. You can match the wedding shower invitations to the theme of your wedding by color, formality, embellishments and wording.
A handmade invitation
is a nice way to go for not only the wedding shower invitations but also the wedding invitations.
The wedding shower invitation itself can be less formal. If you are having a destination wedding it's nice to incorporate that into the wedding shower invitation as well.
Your Wedding Shower Invitation Should Include
The bride's full name and groom too if it's for both
The date, time and location of the shower
The name, phone number, and date to RSVP to
Name who will be hosting the shower
Be sure to list where the bride is registered for gifts
Is there a theme to the shower? If it is a garden, beach or kitchen shower be sure to let everyone know
If it's to be a surprise, be sure to say so in the invitation
If there will be travel involved with the shower, let them know. By limo or bus and an itinerary if possible
Let everyone know there is a party ahead and to expect to have some fun. Be personal in your wording and tone. Remember, this doesn't have to be real formal. Just get the info out there.
