Create Your Own Bridal Shower Invitations!
5 great ways to make beautiful bridal shower invitations.
You want your bridal shower invitations to be unique and beautiful, but you don't know where to start? Don't fret. Patti the Perfect Party Planner is here to tell you five great ways to make sure your bridal shower invitations are beautiful, whether you're making them yourself or having them done professionally.
Tip Number 1 – If You Are Going with a Professional, Pay For Quality
Did your mother ever tell you that you get what you pay for? If she did, she was quite right. When it comes to bridal shower invitations, if you're having them done professionally make sure you're going to a true professional.
To make sure you're going to be getting what you pay for, ask to see samples of work. A true professional should have no problem providing you with sample bridal shower invitations to choose from.
Tip Number 2 – If You're Doing Them Yourself, Use Calligraphy or Stencils
If you're creating your own bridal shower invitations and you know how to write using calligraphy, then by all means do so. However, if you don't know how to write in calligraphy and your handwriting isn't flawless, you're going to want to buy some stencils to use.
Tip Number 3 – Use Ribbons or Lace
Ribbons and lace always add a nice touch to bridal shower invitations. Whether you're having your invitations done professionally or you're making them yourself, make sure the use of ribbons and/or lace is incorporated into the bridal shower invitations.
Tip Number 4 – Make Sure the Envelopes Match the Invitations
Nothing is tackier than sending out bridal shower invitations without matching envelopes. While you might save a few pennies by going with a generic envelope, don't opt for it. Spend some extra money and make sure the envelopes go well with the invitations.
Tip Number 5 – Proofread, Proofread, Proofread
There's no point in passing out a bunch of bridal shower invitations if they're going to have the wrong date on them. If you don't proofread the bridal shower invitations, you might not catch that the invitation says July 9 instead of July 19.
Thoroughly proofread your bridal shower invitations and make sure there are no errors or typos before sending them out.
