Custom Bridal Shower Invitations

bridal shower invitations
During bridal shower planning, we seldom attach a lot of thought to the invitations for the event. Bridal shower invitations are not pondered over nearly quarter as much as we argue and rethink over invitations to the actual wedding. Still, some guidelines have to be followed if you are throwing a themed bridal shower. However, do not worry yourself silly, there is a multitude of bridal shower invitation ideas. Let us take a look at some of them in the following list-

Cheap Bridal Shower Invitations

You may achieve cheap, customized bridal shower invitations through a number of ways. One of which could be by utilizing photo and text manipulation softwares like Photo Shop, MS PowerPoint and Picasa to create an animated bridal shower invitation featuring photos of the bride, the groom, and the bridesmaids, all having a good time together, with specifics of the shower like location, date, timing, and theme written in fancy font midst all the floating photos. These invitations are then emailed to the respective e-mail ids of each shower guest.

According to the bridal shower themes, you could use stock MS PowerPoint clipart images related to the theme in your “e-invitations”. For example, if you have a Valentine’s themed bridal shower, you may use clipart images of hearts, cupids and lovebirds for your e-invites.

Similarly, these clipart images may also be used for hard copy bridal shower invitations i.e. create a static, non-animated page on say PowerPoint or MS Word with images and fancy font, properly explaining the particulars of the bridal shower, which are then formatted on Photo Shop or Picasa and then made ready for mass printouts (printouts could be a little more than the total number of guests on the guest list).

When it comes to customization, bridal shower invitations prepared on the computer at home are flexible to such a degree that you could specify each guest’s name on each different copy of the invitation(maybe you could put a photo of the bride with the bridal shower guest on the copy meant specifically for that guest? It is brilliant as it creates a sense of personalization and proximity to the bride in the mind of the guest as soon as he or she receives his or her respective invite).

Unique Bridal Shower Invitations

There are hundreds of ideas for unique bridal shower invitations which come at an extremely reasonable price. Let us take a look at some of these ideas-

  • Polka dotted template

  • Rolled up scroll tied up with pink ribbon

  • Heart shaped bridal shower invite (for a Valentine’s theme)
