Make a Statement – Perfect Bridal Shower Invitation Wording

How to create your bridal shower invitation wording.

Creating bridal shower invitations can be a blast but oftentimes the invitation wording is what has people stumped. How do you word the invitation? What should it say?

While the answer to these questions has eluded many a party planner, I'm more than happy to share the answers with you. I'm Patti the Perfect Party Planner and I'm going to tell you how to create the invitation wording for your bridal shower invitations.

The Message

The message of the invitation wording itself can be either traditional, casual, or general. Which type of message you use will depend on the type of bridal shower you're throwing and your personal preferences.


A general message will usually just state, ''Please join so-and-so for her bridal shower.'' The message will then be followed by the details of the party such as the date, time and location.


A traditional message will state, ''Please join us for a bridal shower in honor of our bride to be'' and will state the bride's name, the time of the party, the date and the location.

Traditional invitation wording will also usually state the attire required and will name who the party is being hosted by.


A casual invitation will have a cute little note such as “A wedding day is on the way, please attend our bridal shower day!” and will give the name of the bride, the date and the time and location of the party.

Themed Parties

If the party you're throwing is a themed party, the invitation wording should definitely include this information. Especially if want people to come in costume.

Gift Registry

If the bride is registered at a certain store, the invitation wording should also include where the guests can buy the bride gifts. Letting them know where the bride is registered will save them time in their bridal shower gift shopping.

RSVP or Regrets Only

In addition to the bridal shower message and the date, time and location of the party, the invitation wording needs to include who to contact in regards to party attendance.

If you want people to contact you whether they are attending or not, you will put in RSVP and then the phone number that you want people to call. If you want people to call only if they're not attending, you'll put Regrets Only instead of RSVP in the invitation wording.
