Bridal shower invitations are an essential part of any pre-wedding celebration. Not only do they set the tone for the event and provide guests with important details, but they also offer a unique opportunity to get creative with wording. Whether you’re looking for something traditional, fun, or unique, there are countless bridal shower invitation wording ideas to choose from.

What to Include in Your Invitations

Before we take a closer look at the ideas, let’s get to know what you need to include to make your invites as clear and complete as they can be.

The host’s name

A bridal shower is usually organized by the maid of honor, but it can also be thrown by the mother of the bride, a sister, a cousin, or an aunt. Make sure that whoever is hosting the event will have their name on the invite so that guests will know who to get information from.

The bride’s name

Actually, a no-brainer. But hey, in the frenzy of all that’s happening, it could be very easy to forget this.

The date of the event

A few months before the wedding day is the ideal date to hold a bridal shower. Make sure it is clearly indicated to avoid misunderstandings.

The time

Whether it’s a brunch or a lunch party, always make it a point to add inclusive times. Brunch usually starts at 10 am and ends at 2 pm, lunch is from 11 am to 3 pm, and dinner can be anytime between 5 and 7 pm.

The venue

Add the exact address of the venue. Choose a location that’s preferably near the bride’s location. Plus, you may want to include a map, especially if it’s somewhere unfamiliar for some of the bride’s friends.


Anytime between two to four weeks before the party is a safe time to have the shower. So let everyone know about this, and who to contact in case they won’t make it.

Registry Information

If the bride is registered, have this information included in the invites. Or you may choose to create a separate card or sheet of paper for this.

The theme

If there is a theme for the party, let your guests know about it so they can prepare for it and bring whatever gifts are appropriate.

These are mere suggestions, and everything is still up to you. You can add more or delete some of these as long as all the information that your guests need will be covered. The key is to make it easier for everyone to attend and create a party that will be remembered by all the attendees.
