Spring is upon us, which means bridal shower planning is being kicked into high gear. Depending on the situation, some brides are thrown more than one bridal shower, which means lots of organizing and planning for those involved. You’ll want to send invitations at least four to six weeks before the party so by the time you’ve honed in on a date and found a venue, you might be short on time when it comes to choosing and sending invitations. Don’t feel like you’re forced to choose mediocre invites just because of the quick turnaround.
If you’ve started the hunt for invitations you’ve also probably noticed that they can be pricey. Some invitations, depending on the style, can cost up to $5 each or more. You’ll see this high price tag especially on those with custom printing, thick cardstock, and letterpress. If you want the same quality for less, consider shopping online. Most of the invitations on this list are completely customizable, inexpensive, and can be delivered to your doorstep days after your order is placed.
While you’re shopping, think about purchasing a return address stamp. You can buy one for yourself or even for the bride as one of her shower gifts since she’ll be sending lots of mail in the near future.
