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.

3 Affordable DIY Wedding Stationery Ideas

It’s incredible all that a DIY bride can accomplish when blessed with a bit more spare time than spare cash. In this month’s blog post we discuss three DIY wedding stationery ideas that may require a little more time, but will help you save hundreds of dollars on your overall budget.

1. Photoshop

If you or someone close to you has sufficient experience using Photoshop, you can use the program to design your own stationery and bring your ideas to life. This option requires you to purchase plenty of your own stationery paper and printer ink, if printing from home. It’s also crucial that you know your desired image dimensions and have access to a high quality printer and paper cutter.

2. Buy a Template

A quick online search will lead you to thousands of digital templates for all types of stationery, including packages that contain everything you need from save the dates and invitations to table number markers and dinner menus. The beauty of this option is you simply shop for a collection, download it and input your wedding details before printing and cutting everything out.

3. Go Digital

Sending digital invitations is a rapidly growing trend because it’s convenient, affordable, and earth-friendly. Online invitation tools are easy to find and will cover a majority of your stationery needs, including invitations, RSVP’s, save the dates, and thank you cards. Keep in mind however that this option is not suitable for menus, table number markers, or programs.

How Customized Stationery Has Stayed Relevant in Modern Times

For a number of reasons, it may seem as though the era of personal printers and hard copies is on its way out. However niches in the paper industry, customized stationery in particular, have proven their unparalleled value in the age of technology. Not only does customized stationery get your correspondence noticed and bolster branding, it even helps individuals further portray their affection to loved ones who are far away.

Brand Reinforcement

In terms of business, customized stationery can be incredibly powerful. Employees, clients, and anyone else who comes in to contact with the brand or one of its branded items will quickly realize that they are professional and committed to investing in their image. Whether it’s an official letter or a note pad, the brand is continuously being shared and gaining exposure.

Sentimental Purposes

What could portray more thoughtfulness than a customized thank you letter? Not a whole lot! While there has been a rise in popularity in the use of digital cards, the industry will never come close to sharing the same success that custom stationery continues to have. These types of notes are often kept for their nostalgic value, reconnecting them to the emotions the note emoted originally.

Indication of Importance

Most people understand that if something is important enough, it will be sent in the mail rather than via email. From invitations and legal statements to acceptance letters, messages delivered on customized stationery are able to emphasize the gravity of their importance. The full weight behind a message can truly be measured and understood simply by being customized and in physical form.

Conclusion

Beautiful for business and perfect for personal, customized stationery will continue to stand the test of time.
