Wedding Shower Invitation

It is believed that the tradition of throwing a bridal shower can be attributed to Holland. As the story goes, there was a young village girl who fell madly in love with a miller. The miller was very poor, but he was admired throughout the village for his great and generous nature. Even though he had very little, he shared what he did have with other villagers he believed to be less fortunate. The young girl's father was very angry with the choice she made for a husband and he refused to give them any dowry. Word of this quickly spread through the village and the people all came together with the idea to shower gifts on the young couple to help them start their lives together.

The bridal shower tradition has changed over the years and is slightly different in various cultures. However, the main idea is that friends and family come together to offer gifts for the soon to be married couple. Bridal showers are usually hosted by a close friend of the bride. They can be only for the bride with her female friends and relatives as guests, or for both the bride and groom with no guest gender restrictions.

Sending out bridal shower invitations to the guests is also part of the tradition. The invitations let them know what kind of shower you are having (theme), if it is for only the bride or for the couple, when and where, how to RSVP, where the couple is registered, what ideas to give them as gifts and so on. The shower invitations basically inform the guests and let them know what to expect at the party.
