Your bridal shower invitation will set the style and tone of your event. Whether you choose to make your own or order them from a company, the possibilities are endless.
There are many companies eager to print your bridal shower invitations. The type of invitation can range from very casual to very formal. Bridal shower invitations can be made featuring flowers, hearts, champagne glasses, bows, a beach theme, the ocean, a wedding cake ... the sky is the limit.
If you want to make your own, start early to give yourself enough time to change your mind or correct any mistakes. Look for ideas by browsing through invitation catalogs or go to a store that sells and makes invitations for inspiration.
There are invitation kits that you can buy for your home computer. Often the invitations they feature are already decorated and all you have to do is fill in the information. This is an economical and time-saving way to create invitations. Make the designs your own by punching holes in the top and running a ribbon along the edge or putting a stamp with the bride and groom's initials on the corner.
If you are starting from scratch, go to a paper store and browse the paper selections. Buy several samples so you can play around with a few ideas before deciding on one. If you want a wide array of fonts to choose from, many office supply stores offer a CD for around $10 that includes hundreds of fonts you can choose from.
