// WEDDING WEDNESDAY // Bridal Showers

Bridal showers are a time-honored tradition, especially in the South. Cucumber sandwiches, a bouquet made of ribbons and bows, and the oohing and ahhing after each beautifully wrapped gift is opened. A place setting of china? Useful cooking utensils? Monogrammed linens?

Along with the traditional shower, today’s brides are sometimes showered around a theme- Stock the Bar, Lingerie, Round the Clock, or His and Hers. Some brides opt for one larger shower, while others have multiple smaller gatherings. The invitation sets the theme right from the start!

We have an extensive selection of imprintables in the store to give you an idea for shower themes. And of course, the custom options are limitless! On the invitation, be sure and tell your guests whom the shower is for, location, time, as well as rsvp information. A list of hosts is often included, as is registry information, but it is not necessary.

It is always a nice gesture to give the hosts of the shower a small hostess gift, of course accompanied by a handwritten note. It will get you warmed up for all of those thank you notes you will be writing in the weeks ahead!
