Planning a Bridal Shower

Bridal showers are a time honored wedding tradition typically shared with close girlfriends and family one to three months before the big day. A bridal shower is the perfect event for bringing family and friends together to celebrate the bride-to-be individually and shower her with love. Whether you’re planning a brunch or a tea party for an upcoming shower, there are several key elements that should not be overlooked!

Invitations

Once you’ve landed on a theme for the shower partner up with an invitation designer to ensure the invitations reflect the party details and desired aesthetic perfectly. Invitations should be sent out four to six weeks before the shower and contain all information guests will need including location, RSVP details, the general theme, what to bring, the beginning and end times, and any other relevant information.

Décor

Nothing will help make the day feel more special, fun, and beautiful than the décor! From balloons and tassled garlands to lace and flowers, when it comes to celebrating a bride more is always best! At bridal showers, it’s good to have plenty of on-theme signage to help minimize confusion such as yard signs and signs indicating where guests can find the gift table, bathroom, drinks, etc.

To make things more personalized, try decorating with framed baby photos of the bride, creating a picture collage in the shape of her new initials, or getting custom signs and banners made with the wedding hashtag.

Food & Drinks

When planning the food and drinks you want to serve, don’t be afraid to get creative and have a bit of fun. For a brunch themed shower, set up a mimosa bar and serve doughnuts, scones, coffee and even miniature chicken and waffles. A Paris themed shower could offer guests croissants, macaroons and French wines, cheeses and desserts.

Backdrop

Party backdrops are visually appealing focal points that can also serve as photo backdrops. It will be the go-to spot to take pictures for the day while ensuring they turn out beautifully every time. Build your own backdrop with a solid background and decorate it with a bride-to-be banner, flowers, balloons, and other on-theme décor.

Games

The most exciting part of a bridal shower is getting to play all of the games! Games can be totally personalized, generic, or a mixture of both. Common bridal shower games include scratch-off bingo, ‘how well do you know the bride,’ scavenger hunts, mad libs, and a contest to see which team can make the best wedding dress out of toilet paper.

Fall Wedding Announcements

During the fall season, many couples are getting ready to get married; some are even planning parties and celebrations ahead of time. For most couples, putting together invitations for family and friends can be a fun and creative way to announce their upcoming fall wedding. From picking out colors and fonts, to sorting pictures and images, follow along in our blog to learn some tips and tricks to make your fall wedding announcement stand out!

Layout

When forming the layout of your card, consider a few things first:

  • The amount of information (dates, times, location, etc.)
  • The size of your card (large, small, etc.)
  • The number of pictures displayed
  • Font and text size

Laying down pictures on a table, or inserting photos and text online can be beneficial when it comes to arranging your invitation. Organize your card beforehand so you can get a better visual of the final product!

Pictures/Images

If you’re planning to have an autumnal photoshoot done with your significant other, pick out a few places beforehand. For example, a pumpkin patch or a walkway with colorful leaves and trees can be a wonderful fall background. Images may include: nature portraits with your partner, a wedding sign with the date, and other autumn related photographs!

Font and Color

Explore with different fonts and colors to match your personal style. From soft oranges and yellows, to natural reds and greens, a contrast of color (preferably two colors) can make a big statement on your card. If you’re planning to have a harvest themed wedding, then autumnal hues can really compliment your invitation. It can also hint at the colors you’ll be using at your wedding too. Don’t forget to play around with text and fonts to see which works best with your card size!

Your fall wedding announcement deserves the perfect presentation from front to back. If you need to send out wedding invitations to family and friends, do it with us here at Forever Friends.

How to Design Wedding Invitations

A lot of planning goes into the design of your wedding invitations. From selecting an elegant and legible font, to picking the size of your card, you can showcase your personality and style to your guests while still including all of the necessary information. In this month’s blog, we’re looking at how to design wedding invitations with a few key steps to remember along the way!

Size and Print

First, you want to pick the shape and size of the invitation; these specifications will give you a lot of information and make the design process a little more worry-free. Depending on your preference to larger or smaller cards, this can determine how much information you can fit, as well as other pictures and memorabilia of you and your partner. It can also determine your postage situation (if you’ll need to pay extra costs for shipping).

Visual Theme

Is your wedding casual? Perhaps it’s a black-tie event? Pick a visual theme for your wedding invitations that matches the tone/theme of your wedding. You’ll want to settle on a style that reflects your personality as a couple. You might spend a few days looking at options online, or maybe you already have a concept in mind. Design elements such as color, typography and other style flourishes can also be used for the actual event (including table cards and signage).

Font/Typeface

The font on your wedding invitation can speak volumes. While script writing is a popular style for traditional cards, modern designs can be just as sleek and sophisticated. While you are thinking about typefaces, this is the perfect time to think about the words going on the card. Pick a typeface that works with your actual letters. (Sometimes a great font doesn’t look the way you like with certain letter combinations.) Make sure to test different fonts with important information like the date, time, and location of your wedding.

Collect Images

Gather up your favorite photos as a couple to put on your card; this kind of display can make your wedding invitation more personal. If you have custom photos from a shoot, then be sure that they will fit the area of your card. You don’t want your images to come out blurry or too small where no one can see them. High-quality and high-resolution photos are the way to go!

Conclusion

Of course, there are so many different ways you can express your creativity with a wedding invitation. If you need a little extra help in the planning process, then we recommend Forever Friends. With our invitation expertise, we can help you customize a beautiful wedding card for you and your guests to remember forever!
