There’s no time quite as special in any woman's life than her wedding day! Next to this is her bachelorette party and bridal shower! That’s right, weddings are so important that the bride should be celebrated three times!


Bridal Showers

Most women dream of the day where they are the blushing bride in the center of attention, in a beautiful gown, shining from head to toe! It’s a time many of us look forward to, so when gifting something to the bride, always include a special card.

Bridal showers are a tradition of gift-giving in anticipation of the impending wedding. Although the bride and groom will undoubtedly receive many gifts for their wedding, this is a day that is to celebrate the bride only while showering her with gifts, most commonly for the home. Oh, and let’s not forget about a little somethin’ somethin’ to wear on her wedding night!

Often times, bridal shower guests will opt to purchase a gift card rather than a present from the bridal registry. It’s still a nice gesture and allows her to use it as she pleases. Regardless of the type of gift you will be giving, a greeting card is a must!


What to Say in a Bridal Shower Card?

If you walk into any Hallmark store, you’re bound to find rows and rows of cards specifically for wedding occasions, including bridal showers.

Your best bet is to either pick a blank one with a nice picture on front to write in your own bridal shower card messages, or make your own by hand (if you’re the crafty type).

Just how do you write your own bridal shower card messages though?

Here are some tips to get you started:

  • Memories: If you’re invited to be a part of the bridal shower, then it is likely that you are close to the bride and have shared many happy memories with her. Include some silly or tear-jerker memories with the bride-to-be!

  • Happy thoughts: All bridal shower cards should contain nothing but happy thoughts. Be sure to steer clear of “you’ll be sorry you’re getting married” messages, along with bringing up any kind of negative events.

  • Good luck: Marriage is hard and takes a lot of work! Wish her all the luck she will need to keep that fire burning!

  • Wedding/marriage advice: Give positive and constructive marriage advice or advice that may be particularly helpful on her wedding day. “Don’t forget the rings!” (This seriously happened to me and we had to turn back around; I was late for my own wedding!)
