How To Address Shower Invitations

Name the guest of honor

This is the first and most important information. If it’s a couple of wedding shower invitation wording, then it’s best to mention the bride and groom. This informs the guests that the party isn’t for girls only. If the bridal shower is only for the bride, keep it so.

Name the venue, date and time

It’s important to make this information legible on the wedding shower invite wording. Spell out the month so that guests won’t confuse it with the date. Venue address is not necessary if it holds in a restaurant or other public place. But if the party holds in a private home, then include a well-detailed address.

Name the hosts

Naming the hosts gives the guests an idea of who to thank, especially if a lot of people hosted it. Naming them also gives the guest more sources to get party information from.

Include the RSVP

This helps you plan better by knowing the number of guests and how much food and drinks to buy.

Wedding registry

Communicate your registry to the guests by including your website URL on the invite. You may also list out the stores where you have the registry on the invite.

Wedding And Bridal Shower Invitation Etiquette

There are silent rules to observe when putting your invitations to the wedding and bridal shower together. It starts before the shower and doesn’t end till you send out thank you notes.

  1. Be sure that the host has the mailing addresses of everyone invited. It’s important to ensure seamless shower planning.
  2. As a rule, invite members from both sides of the family. Most times, the shower provides the meeting point for parents and family members for the first time. Making it all about you and your family while out that of your spouse to be isn’t right. This can cause a lot of bad blood which you may not be able to handle.
  3. Should you plan to have a destination wedding especially, have a bigger shower. And invite mostly those guests who won’t make it to your wedding. Also, invite those guests who you won’t be inviting to your wedding.
  4. Keep a track of all the gifts you get so that you can send personalized thank you notes.
  5. Send out handwritten thank you notes within two weeks post bridal shower. And let the cards carry your maiden name. Don’t use cards with your married name until after the wedding.
