Finding the perfect bridal shower invitations is the first step to planning a pre-wedding celebration that gets you and your crew in the wedding mood. And, like a good bridal shower, your invitations can be anything you want them to be, from fun and flirty to elegant and sophisticated.

A favorite event for many brides, wedding showers are a centuries-old way to kickstart the wedding ceremonies. Whatever vibe you choose for your shower, invitations will set the tone for the day. They’re also an aesthetic keepsake for both you and your fellow party-goers.

But, with so many different styles, colors, fonts, and designs, it can feel almost impossible to narrow down your invitation options. Not sure where to start? Don’t worry — we’re a bit stationery obsessed here at Green Wedding Shoes, and we’ve rounded up 29 of the best bridal shower invitations guaranteed to fit any style of event.

Before we hop into all things design, we have some FAQs to keep in mind as you’re choosing your invitations.

When should you send out bridal shower invitations?

invite designer: PoppyJackShop

Bridal shower invitations should be sent out around six weeks before your bridal shower to give your guests enough time to prepare their schedules (and outfits!). However, this depends on if you’re inviting any guests from out of town — if so, you may want to send out your invites at least two months before the party.

Most bridal showers are thrown 4-8 weeks before the wedding to avoid causing extra stress for the couple around the big day (while still being close enough to jumpstart the festive spirit). With this in mind, you should plan on sending your invitations around three months before “I do”s.

Of course, if you’re planning the shower around a specific season or holiday, this may change your timeline. Check out our complete bridal shower guide for everything you need to know about party planning!

How to address bridal shower invitations

While there are no hard-and-fast rules, it’s best practice to address your bridal shower invitations in a way that reflects the style of the event. For more laid-back celebrations, skip formal wording (such as prefixes) and find a font that expresses the vibe of the party. For more elegant affairs, you may want to opt for handwritten calligraphy and traditional wording (this means spelling out commonly abbreviated words such as “Street” and “Avenue”).

If you do choose to include prefixes, we suggest reaching out to guests beforehand to ask for their preferred title, or opting for a gender-neutral option. Some people may want to be addressed with their profession, such as Dr. or Professor. Similarly, different women have different preferences about using Ms., Mrs., or Miss. It never hurts to ask — this way everyone can feel included and ready to party!

When to mail bridal shower invitations

To make sure your guests receive your invites around 6-8 weeks before your event, you should mail your bridal shower invitations around 7-9 weeks in advance. This will help you avoid any hold-ups with the post office, which is extra important if you’re sending out invites during the holiday season.

Also, keep in mind that custom invitation designs may take a bit longer. If the clock is ticking, we recommend ditching print-out copies and opting for digital invites instead. They’re easy to send and sustainable!

Now, let’s get into some of our favorite invitation picks for every party personality!
