With an elegant bridal shower on your calendar for a sister, good friend, coworker, or another special bride-to-be, you want to make sure the invitations you create are more than perfect. Shutterfly has an array of elegant bridal shower invitations you can customize with ease to set the theme and tone for this special gathering.
Who to Add to the Invite List
Before customizing your bridal shower invites, you might want to consult with the future bride to determine who she wants to attend the party. For most brides, this list includes wedding party attendants, close personal friends of the bride, and family members of the bride and groom who live nearby. According to basic bridal shower etiquette, you should never invite a person to the bridal shower who is not also invited to the wedding.
Those who do not live close enough to attend the shower do not need to receive an invitation unless by special request of the bride. Someone who cannot go to the shower, but who still wants her or his presence felt may send a gift to commemorate the occasion, but this is not a requirement.
Customization Options for a Personalized Feel
The bridal shower invitations you send out should not only complement the general style of the wedding but the personal taste of the bride as well. You should also make sure that the invitations you create match the theme of the shower, whether you are going for an elegant, classic approach, or a more whimsical, fun affair.
Shutterfly offers a variety of customizable wedding shower invitation templates in multiple designs, colors, and styles. You can get started by picking the template you like best, including the details of the shower, and personalizing stamps and envelopes to go with the invites. You can even save multiple designs as you go along if you are unsure of which invite you want to go with.
