With modern weddings usually involving both the bride and groom in the planning stages, it makes sense that more and more couples are choosing to throw a shower together as well. This eliminates the need for separate parties, and when the two share friends it can be a fun way to celebrate upcoming nuptials and get everyone else excited for these events. When sending out bridal shower invitations for couples’ showers, you’ll want to sit down and think about the initial planning stages first, to find the best design and overall theme for the big day.

Although when the bridal shower is for just the bride and her friends, the themes can be more girly, when it is a couple’s shower then you will want a theme that draws everyone together. If your wedding takes place in the spring or summer, an outdoor barbeque is a popular option. Grilled items, sangria, and other summery refreshments go well with informal decorations, allowing the guests on your bridal shower invitations to mix and mingle. Some group games can help bring everyone together, allowing the different sides of the bride’s and groom’s guest lists to get to know each other.

A wedding is all about bringing everyone together, and the bridal shower is the first opportunity to do this. By carefully choosing a guest list to send out your bridal shower invitations, you could make sure that everyone who is attending your wedding is sure to know a few others when they are actually at the wedding and reception. This helps ensure that everyone has a great time at all of the wedding events. Dance parties or karaoke can be a fun and rowdy way to celebrate the good times to come during a bridal shower.

Many people throw bridal showers as a way to receive gifts and get this part of the wedding process over with, so be sure to have as many thank you cards ready as you have shower invitations. With guests from both the bride and groom sides, you should pull in a broad array of different gifts. This could include lingerie, kitchen items, and anything else that a new couple might need to start their lives together. If you are providing refreshments, be sure to indicate this on the invitations so that your guests know what to expect, and if they should bring anything. Potluck parties are becoming more and more common.
