When to send out bridal shower invitations?
Traditionally, it’s recommended to send your bridal shower invitations about six-to-eight weeks in advance of the baby shower. We’d suggest closer to eight weeks if the majority of guests will need to travel to the wedding shower. Especially if your planning timeline is compressed, online bridal shower invitations are helpful, because they arrive instantly. Where to buy cheap bridal shower invitations?
Online invitations are cheap bridal shower invitations compared to printed options. Paperless Post coin packages start at $10, or $0.40 per coin, which is less than the cost of a stamp per guest. Typically the host(s) pay for the bridal shower invites and party, so save your money for the decor and food. Paperless Post has unique bridal shower invitations for every modern bride. Our wide assortment offers cheap 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).
How to address bridal shower invitations?
Our invitation templates get you started with editable copy. 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.
Who should you invite to a bridal shower?
Make inviting guests easy by importing a copy of the guest list, usually provided to you by the bride. You can export this same list with RSVP status to track gifts the day-of the bridal shower. 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.
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, or one of our )(https://www.paperlesspost.com/mobile). 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.

Bridal shower theme ideas
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 calling for unique bridal shower invitations no matter the theme or inspiration.
Our wedding shower invitations help to set the tone for the occasion. If you are just starting in the planning process with the bride, 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 a bridal shower invitation template to match the bride’s vision, look no further.
