Choosing bridal shower invitations can be one of the most fun parts of planning the party. You get to create an invitation that sets the theme long before the party ever begins. If you send out the right invitations, people will come bearing gifts and wearing the clothes that fit with the theme. I'm not saying that you have to have a theme, per se, but you don't want one girl in jeans and everyone else in dresses.

Starting the Party Early

It can be fun to have a themed party, however. Think of the bride's favorite activity. That could give you some hints. If she loves playing tennis, use that for a theme. If you have a wild bride who can't get enough of motorcycles, have everyone in black leather. With a motorcycle theme, you wouldn't want to send out cards with pink ribbons and pastel yellow bows. You'd want something a little tougher.

Do you see how the invitations can help create the theme? It's great fun when you come across the perfect invite. It will make you want to mail them out right away. You might find it a little difficult to find exactly what you are looking for when visiting local card and stationary stores. If that's the case, try using the Internet. There are hundreds of websites solely devoted to invitations.

You'll find hundreds of themes just for bridal showers. In addition, many sites allow for personalization. You can make the invites say what you want. If you have a French theme, translate the traditional words of when, where and why into French. You'll soon discover that creating your own invitations can be quite a ball.
