Designs for every bride Paperless Post has online bridal shower invitations for every modern bride. Our wide assortment offers bridal shower invites that will delight the bride wanting to use her wedding colors on each element just as much as the couple eloping with little fanfare (and no color scheme). The bridal shower is a much anticipated pre-wedding party. Allowing loved ones to stock the kitchen or bar of the bride and groom, or toast the bride over tea or champagne. Bridal showers are a unique occasion that can be celebrated with a variety of themes and inspiration.
If you are planning during social distancing, you can still shower the bride with a bridal shower invitation on Zoom or a drive by parade! We offer an elevated assortment of virtual event invitations. Guests can ship their gifts directly to the bride in advance. Or hosts can also put together a collection of recipes or well-wishes for the bride to read day-of, and keep for years to follow.
Already have a theme? We can match it! Still trying to figure out? We can help too! Our online bridal shower invitations help to set the tone for the occasion. If you are just starting in the planning process, our blog offers bridal shower party ideas for any host with theme ideas, decor and shower favor ideas to kickstart the planning. Alternatively, if you are searching for an invitation to match your vision, look no further. We have teapot invites for high tea, clocks for “around the clock” parties, negligee for stocking the lingerie drawer, or pots and pans for a kitchen-focused shower. Planning a co-ed affair? Opt to stock the bar choosing from our many spirited designs. For those with a less thematic party, you can still set the right tone using an online bridal shower invitation featuring florals, watercolor motifs or gold foil detailing.
It’s stressful to plan a party. Hosting a shower can feel like a big undertaking. You need to find a date, location, and theme or decor and coordinate it all with the bride. Let Paperless Post ease the burden. After finding the right invitation, you can customize the fonts and colors on the card and choose between optional premium elements like backdrops, envelope and liners, or stamps. If you need help with wording, layout or exact color matching, our Personal Design Services team can review any draft for no additional charge. Once you have the guest list details, it’s easy to upload for sending using a .csv or direct copy and paste. You can schedule the card for sending or send instantly. Sending online eliminates a trip (or three) to the post office, and let’s you track exactly who’s opened and who’s coming from your computer, mobile web or iOS app. Most helpful, our invitations have the option to add a registry link so you can include those details for guests. After sending the invite, you can add the honoree as a co-host for a view-only look at responses. Follow-up with any guests that still need to respond as needed, and remind everyone about the party a day or two before.
Stick to your timeline, and your budget. Traditionally, it’s recommended to send the shower invite about six-to-eight weeks in advance. Closer to eight weeks if the majority of guests will need to travel for the party. Even if you’re cutting it close, online invitations arrive instantly. Typically the host(s) pay for the invites and party. Online invitations are cheap bridal shower invitations compared to printed options. Paperless Post has free bridal shower invitations, as well as optional premium elements for every design. Online coins start at $10, or $0.40 per coin, which is less than the cost of a stamp per guest. Save your money for the decor and food.
Use an exported copy of the guest list to track gifts. It’s easy to export a copy of your guest list after the shower to share with the honoree. They can use the same email list for sending thank yous to everyone. It also can serve as a helpful starting place for tracking gifts opened during the party. Brides should send a thank you within about two weeks of the event. Unless there’s less than a month before the wedding, and then it can be after the big day, but should still be a separate note from a thank you for a wedding gift.
Exclusive designs and bridal shower cards from famed designers. Paperless Post’s online greeting card collection includes designs from noted stationers like Rifle Paper Co. Happy Menocal, Sugar Paper, and Venamour and design experts like kate spade new york, Putnam & Putnam, and Oscar de la Renta.
